april showers by ecoletta
i enjoyed putting together this week's friday's fancies post because i knew right away the raincoat i would choose in an april downpour. a burberry trench. i've been dreaming of this coat for the last 8 years. i want it. i need it. i have a slight obsession with jackets/coats - i own almost 20 - and if i had around $2,000 to spend on one, this trench would be it.
ugh, i die.
maybe if i get a really sweet bonus or raise at work this year i'll put it towards this jacket. that seems right, doesn't it?
this was like the longest week ever, don't you agree? i'm counting down the hours until work is over so i can join my bestie for a fun night. we're volunteering with the wounded warrior project at walter reed hospital. my friend has been a part of the organization for a few years now, and i was trained at work to become a mentor, so tonight she's introducing me to the people and i don't really know what to expect. i'm excited and nervous. what if i don't know what to say to the wounded? what if i say the wrong thing? those men and women have been through so much and all i want to do is try to put a smile on their face, maybe even laugh a bit. i know my friend will be by my side and guide me through the night, but i'm still a little nervous.
afterwards we're going to david's bridal so she can help me pick out two of my bridesmaid dresses. then we'll probably nosh on some food. naturally.
saturday we're doing family things and on sunday boyfriend and i are hanging out in dc all day. it's supposed to be almost 70 degrees so we'll start at eastern market in capitol hill, where we'll do a bit of shopping and have a bottomless mimosa and bloody mary brunch, and then we'll make our way to a few museums. i can't wait!
what's on your weekend agenda?
