Unplanned Day At Work

Just as yesterday I didn't plan on being at home, today I was supposed to be at home but they called me in to work. Ah the life of a contract employee. I'm just happy to be employed in this economy. So after 10 glorious hours of sleep, I trundled off to work first thing this morning.

What I Wore While Sitting At My Desk:

  • paisley skirt (Anne Klein)
  • blue short sleeve blouse (Old Navy)
  • vest (Rena Rowan, thrifted new Goodwill)
  • rafia mules (Bandalino)
  • cognac purse (thrifted, Genesis)
  • wooden bangle (thrifted, Goodwill)
  • button ring (Etsy Dallas, free gift)
  • brass earrings (Target)
  • brass reversible necklace (Target)

What I Ate While Staring At A Box of Cookies:

Someone delivered a box of cookies this morning and I stared at all day. I am only human and I didn't have breakfast packed, so....
  • breakfast - 3 snickerdoodles
  • lunch - gyro & potatoes (Rand joined me downtown for lunch and he picked)
  • dinner - chicken panang (I only ate about 1/2 and I had to tone it down with lite coconut milk b/c I'm a spice wimp)

Total for the Day: 1819 calories, 6 glasses of water, no exercise

Wait. How is it possible that I ate cookies for breakfast, gyros for lunch, and take-out for dinner but still managed to hit my calories???

Ah, you're a contractor too?
It definitely makes me grateful every week to receive a paycheck and have a job, even if it's only for a certain period of time.

I love your skirt (cute paisley print!) and the orange bag really works well with what you're wearing. Again, a pop of color that just wouldn't have occurred to me to try!

i'm going to steal your vest, shoes, and purse while you are asleep again for another 10 hours. don't worry i will bring them back before you wake up!

Okay, you're totally looking skinnier. I can really tell in your photos from when to you started to now.

This is a nice color combo on you and I'm loving the jewelry. Since someone else is already stealing your clothes, I'm going to steal your jewelry okay? =)

I get busy for a few weeks, come back to find you're disappearing from my screen! Congrats on the weight loss. All your yummy foods are telling me that a change of eating habits might not be so boring!

I love your shoes, necklace, bag and well, the whole outfit really. I wish I could find nice shoes like that for my big feet! (And with a lower heel)

I love that bright orange purse!

Tina said...

Kari - Yep. I do contract legal work for various firms in Dallas ever since my firm had massive lay-offs. It's not ideal, but it's a paycheck!

eednic - you crack me up.

Stacy - Since you are my sister, you know that you could borrow anything I have, although it's a pretty long drive just to borrow some jewelry. LOL

Deborah-Lee - I actually find I am eating a wider variety of meals now than I was before I started trying to be healthy. It's no longer just pizza, burgers, and fried fried fried.

Diana - thanks! It really does look orange, doesn't it? I think of it as a cognac color, but when you put it with the right things, it just turns up the volume on the orange. :)
