This is what I wore to go to the pumpkin patch field trip last week with Toby's class. It was mighty chilly outside to start, so tights were an absolute must. I'm starting to warm up to the idea of having them in my wardrobe again, though I'm sad to see the warmer weather go. Luckily I can break out some slightly shorter dresses now that my legs will be covered for the season! One of the most important questions I ask myself before buying a dress is "Would I wear this without tights?" If the answer is no, back on the rack it goes. Of course I'll make an exception here and there, but at least this way I can buy a dress that's wearable for all seasons. Mint isn't necessarily the first color I think of when I think of Fall, so I had to Autumn-ize it a bit. A mustard cardigan and infinity scarf, topped off with a jacket Mike outgrew. I love me a good military green jacket, and I'm stoked on how this one fits me (Yep, totally from the dude's section). For some reason I've never found quite as good of a female-intended jacket. While I'm not huge on cold weather, I am glad it's scarf season! The only bad thing about scarves though... when you've got hair like mine, it's an instant tangle-fest in the back of my head. Seriously, these photos were from Friday and I still haven't completely untangled the bottom part of my hair. Hashtag-curly-hair-problems.
Several weeks ago I was sort of kicked out of my Twitter account (via browser) because it had been phished. I tried resetting the password but Twitter freaked out because I no longer had the same cell phone number and for some reason I wasn't receiving any of the reset emails. I tried talking to someone at Twitter Support and seriously, she was the most rude and unconcerned person ever. Basically she just told me "Well, that's too bad. We're not going to help you and you'll just have to make a new account" (Paraphrasing, but seriously, that's what she said) - WHAT?! I was able to provide proof of who I was, my passwords, my contact info, etc... but simply because I couldn't get a reset code via a text message they were like "WHOOPS! 2 BAD 4 U!" and then she blocked my email from asking for more help. Like, really. Blocked my email. I submitted two more support tickets over the coming weeks but no one ever responded to them. I was beginning to feel pretty crappy about it because if my Echofon ever signed out of Twitter on my phone, I'd have absolutely no way to retrieve my account. I know that sounds silly - getting worked up about a Twitter handle -- but I've had that account for over 5 years (August 2008! Holla!)... I've worked hard to make the connections I have via Twitter and I didn't want to lose them. Not to mention like almost 50,000 tweets (I talk to much and say too little, I know) Well, whatever - Long story short: Mike called my old cell phone number. No one answered. About an hour later someone called him back from that number. He answered, explained to the girl who he was and what he was trying to do, they laughed, and she agreed to text him the ### code that Twitter was going to send to her phone. I mean, that's pretty rad, right? I probably would've thought someone was totes crazy to call me like (but I totally would've obliged. I get it!) but it warmed my cold little heart to know that 1) Mike would call a random stranger for me (That phone number is sort of special, honestly) and 2) someone would be so kind as to help me out. In the end, I'm finally back into my Twitter account and stoked on it. Geeze, what a long paragraph for such a silly, non-important story haha! ~*~Tweet me~*~*
Today I'm going to try and get as much work done as I can in the office. Both Mike and I started feeling really crummy on our drive home from errands last night and I spent the rest of the night curled up with a thing of tissue and my inhaler. I feel a little bit better this morning but it's always worse in the evening so I'm going to try and power through as much work as possible and then crash on the couch for a while. I'm hoping it's just passing sinuses and not something worse. All the while I'll cross my fingers Mike isn't coming down with a stomach bug. Both Mike and I are pretty pathetic when we're sick, to be honest... but even after 4 years of being together, I don't think we've ever been sick at the same time. There would seriously be NO HOPE for us in that case. We're pretty sad, huh?
