Indulge me, dear.


Today was an awesome day.  We got to 60 degrees here, and everyone was out saying "hello" to each-other again.  I celebrated by taking a couple of new things out for a spin...

Jacket:  American Rag.  Tshirt: F21.  Jeans: NY&Co.  Shoes:  JCPenney.  Earrings:  Aldo.

One of my new things includes a pyramid-studded t-shirt found in the "Gaga" section of Forever 21.  I don't normally go for things that are punky-- I spent so much time in them as a teenager that it's like going back to wearing diapers.  But this t-shirt is heathered and the studs are bronze, so it has a femininity and quietness to it that can't be found in black leather and silver hardware.


On the opposite end of the quitness spectrum, I dove back into the sparkly nail-polish pond.  I think my first bottles of nail polish were opaque white and silver glitter, and try as I might to kick this childish habit, I think I'll always be a sucker for glitter.  I applied it as I got my hair did today-- 


The girl that did it said that she thought my earrings looked like little golden records-- I dig the comparison.  She also told me that she was pregnant, and I said, "Congratulations!  Are you excited?"  and she said, "Not really, it isn't mine,"  she paused, "I'm a surrogate."  I really wanted to learn more about it, but I didn't want to pry, either.  What a thing to do!  I can't say that I can wrap my mind around it but I'm glad the option is out there for people.  Who knows, maybe I'll give her a call sometime for services other than a cut and color...

Yours,

Elissa.

I don't think it would be prying snce she came out and told you. I wonder if it is for a loved one or for money or what? That would be so challenging and life changing.
