OOTD :: of breaking away and mi vida loca




And so the time draws nigh for that much-anticipated, much-needed break.

From school, from drama, from as many self-imposed responsibilities as possible.

This means that soon enough, there will be no more summer professional development. Or stressing about day care while at work. Or Goodreads book reading goals. Or OOTD posts. Or linkups.

Yep, my friends, I’m going to live a crazy, indulgent, decadent life. For this forty-something-year-old, “crazy/indulgent/decadent” means sleeping in, marathon watching anime, finally getting back on the treadmill regularly, making religious trips to Yogurtland for lunch, and revisiting the novel that has been moldering in my lappie since former Intrepid TA #1 (and 2 blogger betas) decided to do that selfish thing and live a life beyond mine.

(Sarah, Selah, and Chessa – you all know I’m just messing with you, right?)

I’m also gonna make like a hermit and go on summer hiatus from this blog. Initially, I thought to participate in Whitney’s July challenge. Or keep up with the new batch of Anne’s 52 Pick-me-up topics. Or at least maintain TARDIS Tuesdays.

But then I said “Meh!” (actually, it was something stronger than “meh” and may have been two words, one of which started with an “F”) and decided to chuck it all and just give over to sloth. I may be persuaded to do an outfit a month (so T3 is still a go), but y’all are gonna have to wait till August before you see regular OOTDs from this gal again.

So enjoy this final week of pre-made pictorials. I technically don’t have to be at work this week but was persuaded to help my boss out with grant writing for some extra cash, so since I’m getting up early in the morning anyway, and since I need to clear my phone of all these photos, I’m gifting you with five days of outfits before I go dark.

      Thank you, but did you mean “bravo” rather than “brave”? If no, I don’t exactly know what I’m being brave about but thank you. 🙂

  2. Patti says:

    Brava for you! Enjoy every minute. xo

  3. Enjoy, some of us are stupid to teach a whole summer (of course, some of us have two kids in college).

    Have fun.

  4. chessakat says:

    Yay! You so deserve a break. Of course I’ll miss seeing your amazing pattern mixing, but I’ll be so happy knowing you’re relaxing, watching anime, writing, reading, and All the Fun Things! ❤

    Ooo…I’ll miss you friend! But enjoy your time off. We all need a break once in awhile. 🙂

    • mtsedwards says:

      This just means I’ll have more time to be a consumer rather than a producer and maybe be a little more interactive with my comments on other people’s blogs. ;p

  6. Good for you! Our blogs should be fun and never an obligation! I look forward to hearing from you when I hear from you and I hope that you enjoy some much needed relaxation!

    • mtsedwards says:

      Same to you, my friend. Especially with all your life changes and all. Depending on how well the rest of my June goes, I may be refreshed enough to participate in a few of your July topics. 😀

    Enjoy your summer!

      I had no idea that the link would “project”!

    • mtsedwards says:

      Ahahaha! I listened to this while I got ready for work this morning. Thanks for this! I may have found a new jam for the summer. 😀 Are they local?

      • Anne M Bray aka SpyGirl says:

        They are one of my favorite bands. They are based in NYC. Ira, the drummer, was a drum tech for The Smithereens back in the olden days (90s), and he and Severo are best buds. We’ve hung out with them many a gig. Definitely look them up on your music provider of choice.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
