song of the day: 'the book i read' by the talking heads
sorry for the less than brilliant outfit today. we had rain yesterday and it was a little bit cool (hence the jeans) but the afternoon was back to hot (hence the tank). but even though this outfit isn't all that, i did find a pretty amazing piece at the local thrift!! a YSL blouse for $5!!! what the heck? that never happens to me. but i'm fairly glad it did. i admit i thought someone was playing a joke on me. i mean, YSL in siloam springs?!? especially since there was a sad looking homemade striped dress that was $7.50. i know, crazy.
so the next question i received was about my favorite book. well, my favorite other than the outlander series by diana gabaldon, which if you haven't read them, my stars you need to do it now!! i'm embarrassed to say how many times i've read the first couple books in the series (4 times! ok, maybe i'm not THAT embarrassed). i am in love with jamie and claire. they are like my family. i've even gotten a few others obsessed with the books as well. one of the joys of my life is to get people reading those books. anyway, so my next favorite is 'the time traveler's wife' by audrey niffenegger. if you're looking for some good classics, you should try 'jude the obscure' or 'tess of the d'urbervilles' by thomas hardy. another good book and a super easy read is 'like water for chocolate' by laura esquivel. that's a really good one if you're also into cooking because there are recipes at the beginning of each chapter. i just started anne rice's 'interview with the vampire' last night. i've never read any of her books so i'm excited to get into this one. did you guys know that i have an english degree? yep, i do. totally not using it though. so i'm curious to know if any of you have a favorite book. let me know!
