{In} Engagement Parties {Out} Coughing

Lord Blogosphere! My cough will not go awayyyyy, it's SO annoying, I can't even tell you. Due to this cough, I haven't been out on the weekends in two weeks, I didn't celebrate St. Patty's (didn't blog Friday because I was asleep by 9 PM due to illness) and I sound like your Great Aunt Beatrice quite frequently. However, on came in a prescription: Codeine Cough Syrup. Ahhh, though it hasn't eliminated my cough, it has made a huge difference and I think I'm heading outta the woods with this senior citizen mating call I got goin' on.
 {we have been coughing like it's going out of style}

Due to the decreased coughing intervals and feeling like a rebel, I actually made it out of the house (in regular clothes no less) to head to my friends' engagement party on Saturday night. I was realllly excited that I was feeling better by that night because I had definitely hoped to make it there. The Bride-to-Be was in my Sorority and is so cute and so funny and someone I definitely love to support.

So, just like that, it was off with the fleece pants and on with the scalloped skirt from Urban Outfitters, denim trouser jacket, black feather Steve Madden top and a strapless bra that failed me all night long.

{cute outfits all around}

Can I please draw your attention to the pretty little Asian girl above? That's my friend Yuki who I blogged about seeing her off as she did her own Eat Pray Love story... well, she's back! And oh it felt wonderful to see her smiley little face. Oh, the things she must have seen!

I have a lot that I'm looking forward to this week, I checked some great movies out from the Library (yes, the library, it's bomb) and I have some fun blogging ideas. Also, I am going to be naive and pretend this cough will be gone SOOON, I'm over it like I'm over Lindsay Lohan (seriously, your antics are completely tiring, just get your sh*t together).

Happy Monday!

LOL, on the lindsay lohan comment. i feel for you. that's how i've been the two or three weekends ago and it is not fun at all. however, you look great! and BOO to the strapless bra that failed you. those things are hard to find, like the good ones. at least for me it's a challenge. hope you are feeling better.

Caitlin. I HAVE THE SAME COUGH! It's deep and from the chest and is persistent as a mother. It's been going 3 weeks strong! I need to get my paws on some of that codeine cough syrup you got--sounds like a dream and a half! The only problem is that my cough is ferocious throughout the day, too . . . and lord knows I can't be on sleepy codeine whilst teaching raucous teenagers.

Hoping we both regain our normal voices soon (and get rid of all the grossness in my throat/nose/etc.).

I LOVE YOUR OUTFIT. That fringey top is to die for, and scalloped skirt!!!! You look amazing. Congrats to your friend! Looks like it was a fun party. :)

I sound like your Great Aunt Beatrice

Oh that's not good, my Great Aunt Beatrice turned into my Immense Uncle Bernie….swapping slingbacks for mankinis proved to be exceedingly traumatic for the whole family, leading to the eventual demise of our family in the late eighties….Don’t worry we are planning a comeback tour now that Bernie has compromised and become Mammoth Auncle Beartnie the hermaphrodite and agreed to go F##k* itself…..

* depending on your sensibilities please feel free to trade this for “Make sweet love to”

Awww, I am SO sorry to hear about your cough! But it sounds like it's about to go away SOON. You and your man look sooooo good in the first picture, what a great-looking couple!

Ugh, I hear you about the strapless bras. I finally got one that *doesn't* keep slipping down but it took a lot of effort to find it!

How nice that you were re-united with your friend. Yuki is ADORABLE - the love the bust section of her dress! And Megan is so stylish too, I am totally coveting her necklace and skirt. You have such stylish friends!

Feel better!! xoxo

Uggghhh the persistent cough can be such a bitch!! And I totally had to laugh about your codeine cough of my girlfriends had an abscess on her tonsil and had to drink liquid vicodin which I know isn't the same but OMG it was hilarious when she was on that shit!!! Does your cough syrup make you totally loopy?!

Loving your outfit as day when you're feeling generous you should totally mail me that skirt ;)
