tall hot stranger: buy me a mocha/latté

It's a lot more fun to be stuck in traffic than to be hit by a bus. Because maybe if you had been five minutes earlier and beat the traffic you would have been hit by that bus (that didn't stop at the red light -mercifully no one was hit...because you were all stuck in traffic).

When I look back on my life I see a lot of this sort of thing.

You forgot your wallet at home, on the table, because you were cleaning out your purse. You are now standing in line at Starbucks. Your latté is currently being made when you discover your missing wallet. Instead of swearing like a trucker (not that you would do such a thing), you shrug your shoulders and say: "Oh, no. I've left my wallet at home. I'm so sorry! How sad is that! No latté."

Que, tall handsome stranger standing behind you in line: "I can get that for you miss."

Three years later: wedded bliss.

Pretend story. But you get the picture.

Whenever my life is annoying me, I try to remember this: I'm not stuck in traffic. I'm waiting for a tall hot stranger to buy me a mocha.

  1. I like this post, and the pretend story.
    Imagine that happening. *sigh*

    X x

    p.s pretty nail varnish, and that shell ring is still pretty amazing!

  2. Lovely, lovely, lovely! I like your way of thinking almost as much as I love the dress and cardi combo and that glorious nail polish! xxx

  3. This is a great mix of patterns! I wish we lived closer so we could go hang out at the park together and ignore stares from other moms. :)

  4. I love this way of looking at life--such a reminder that you just never know what a situation (good or bad) may bring. And also, I adore this look. It's so 50s chic!

  5. Have you ever looked bad in any dress? Seriously.

    Also, I kind of wish that story was true!

  6. Love the color of your nails and that prints together! :)

  7. I love this combination! Why is it that your outfits can make me physically wince with how cool they are and how much I want to wear them???

  8. It's good to think in that way, I have trouble doing that.

  9. you know what lady? I wish we could hang out! :D

  11. I want that look fantastic! Can the tall hot stranger be Mr Darcy?

    Totally agree with the way you think. No point speeding to get somewhere when you are running late because perhaps you could be late for a reason. :)

  12. Lovely outfit:)


  13. hey lady, love that quote! great post... i will remember this next time i am in traffic :) actually we think a lot alike as traffic makes me think similar things :D

  14. I'm not sure what I love more: the mix of patterns or the nail color. I would take that cardigan or the dress individually any day of the week, but together, they are dynamite.

  15. I LOVE the dress! it's so feminine and pretty, and the nails are just awesome.


With two children and a tendency to procrastinate, I don't often return comments. But I do appreciate them! So thank you!
