Proof of Obsession

By now everyone knows that I have an unhealthy obsession with polka dots.  Can you blame me?  I've picked out some of my favorite polka dotted outfits and you can see them over on Britt's blog, The Secondhand Magpie.  As an added bonus... Britt asked me to share an embarrassing story.  Great way to end the week, right?  So go check it out!


Since it's Friday, time for some Love-It Notes!

1.  Weddings!  Last weekend I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding.  We had so much fun and it was great to see my friend so happy.  And we may or may not have broken out into a dance when Call Me Maybe came on.

2.  The Olympics.  Confession: prior to the start of the Olympics, I was totally not into it and had not planned on watching.  But since the first day, I've been completely addicted!  One minute I'm a ball of nerves, the next minute I'm cheering along, and then the next I'm jumping up and down in excitement.

3.  Tax Free Weekend.  This weekend is tax free, which I'm totally excited about.  Since Massachusetts already has no tax on clothing, shoes, and food (yes all of my favorite things, why do you think I live here?), I'm going to be loading up on essentials.  I'll be that girl with a car full of toilet paper and shampoo... along with things that I pretend I need like more decorative pillows.  You can never have enough decorative pillows.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I love polka dots as well, they're so nice to wear with everything!
Haha, when "Calle me maybe" comes on where I work, everyone starts singing to it.
The olympics are rather on and off for me as well, though we don't get that much coverage of it I find over here.
Wow, tax free weekend?? =O I don't think I've ever heard of that. Doubt we'd ever get it here in Australia!

We have so much in common! I'm a wedding lover whether I get to be in one or not...they're just so much fun and such happy events. I'm also the same way about the Olympics, I didn't expect to ever become hooked on beach volleyball, pole vaulting or tennis, but the Olympics made all that happen! Lastly, you stole the words right outta my mouth about decorative pillows. My boyfriend doesn't understand why we have 8 pillows on our bed and only actually sleep on 2, but to me you can never have too many! :) Going to check out your guest post now!

If anybody knows how to work polka dots, it's you, Yi-chia; and you do it so well. Interesting story on "The Secondhand Magpie" as well. As for the Olympics, I've always been behind Team USA in all sports. Too bad the 2012 London Olympic Summer Games are coming to an end. :( Anyhow, you're a Gold Medal fashionista with your lovely posts, Yi-chia! :D

haha yes i agree i have been the same way about the olympics i didn't anticipate to be watching so much!! i used to live really close to Delaware and they had tax free shopping...although i always felt like maybe the prices were just a little higher to make up for it o.O so it probably works better when you already know the prices in your area!

If you're going to add more decorative pillows to the collection what better time to get it than tax free weekend? Chicago has one of the highest sales tax in the country which sucks major AND we never have the luxury of no tax weekend. No fair.

That's so funny about the taxes, is it not a set sales tax, or just groceries and stuff? (Haha, we have no sales tax up here! But we make up for it with property taxes and such.) ^_^
