Nine in the afternoon.



What I wore: Dress, Victoria's Secret. Shoes, Target. 

You know those days,
when you get stuck in an immature giggle fit
and you really shouldn't go out in public but you do anyway?
Giggling your way through the grocery store,
your husband abruptly bends over in the aisle 
so you have to run straight into him,
and to get back at him you start loading candies you 
don't need to buy into the cart.
And then in the produce section, your arms are full
of fruit, and you can't pick up one more thing, but your husband has the cart
and he's running away from you, circling the perimeter of 
the section and weaving through displays of apples
and grapefruit so you'll never catch him.
And outside of the store, he jumps onto the back
of the cart and rides it toward the car,
and when he's not looking you jump behind some
pillars and try to "hide" while you're
sneakily making your way toward him.
And on the drive home, you turn the 
radio volume up and shake your hair and flail your
arms and pretend you're playing the drums or the guitar, 
and you play with special gusto
when you come to a stoplight and someone looks over at both of you.

Welcome to Sunday afternoon.

  3. Sounds about perfect. Especially that dress because I think that might be the best dress I've ever seen.

    Days like that are the very very best. Laughing and acting like a complete fool with your best friend and you don't even care because it's fun and it feels good and your face hurts from laughing so hard and smiling so big. BEST DAYS INDEED.
