For today's tour of Seattle, we bring you to the EMP/SFM, which is, the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum that was funded by Paul Allen and deemed one of the ugliest buildings in Seattle. It's not a particularity attractive building, but sure makes for a cool backdrop, right? I had to go around to the back of the building because the front is right up against the busy street, and I'm for sure not busting out my self-timer there! My husband and I were just there a few weeks ago, and I remembered that there was a nice high ledge thingy that was a perfect height to place my camera. I was glad when I went this morning on my way to work and found that it was completely deserted back there. Yay for no awkward looks!
This corduroy skirt ALWAYS bunches up funny and clings to my tights or leggings, so today I decided to add another skirt underneath it to act as a slip (because I don't own one) in addition to adding some warmth. I do like the extra peek of lace, and think I might be doing this more often in the future.
OK, for all you ladies who do not have kids yet, here's a warning for you. They all tell you that you don't lose as much hair as normal when you're pregnant, and that's true. I had fabulous hair when I was pregnant and for the first 3 months of my son's life. Then around 3 or 4 months after giving birth, all of that hair that didn't fall out starts shedding, and it's disgusting. Clogged drains and hair all over the carpet. SO GROSS. And I looked bald when I had my hair pulled back, but I'll spare you the pictures. Well, all your hair starts growing back pretty quickly, and you'll end up with wispies ALL over your head. I had to cut bangs for the first time in my life because of it. Anyway, what they don't tell you is that it takes FOREVER for wispies to grow out. See all that hair that came out of my braid on the side of my head? That's all my "new" hair, and it doesn't like to cooperate. SO ANNOYING. They always escape my bobby pins and hair bands. It's been more than a year and they're still so short. UGH.
On another note, thank you all for all the super sweet comments about my boring life. This is why I like blogging so much, you guys totally make me feel like I have real friends, even if there's a slight chance you might be some creepy old man pretending to be a girl.
