Where's the ark?

Man, we are making up for a long drought here in MN!  It is pouring rain today and has been since last night.  Lovely.  I think I might need to build an ark in fact.  I'm praying we don't get water in our basement - it's been known to happen.  Eek.  Needless to say, I was forced indoors for pictures today.  


Chose pants again, when it's this wet outside I just don't feel like wearing a skirt or a dress!  I'm regretting that I still wore sandals just a wee bit, my feet definitely got wet!!  And as always with my indoor pictures, I wish you could see the details a bit better, like the shimmer that is in the fabric of my shirt.  It is slightly sparkly.  I tried to get a close up but it didn't work all that well.


Yes that is a Roomba by my feet.  Yes we own a Roomba.  We got it off of Woot awhile back and it does work out well with having cats as long as we're on top of running it every other day or so.  Lately it hasn't been working real nice though, so I've been avoiding using it and just been running the good old fashioned vacuum.  When we are good about using it though the floors really do stay nice and clean and there's much less cat fur around!  I told you guys that the Pants Monkey and I were giant nerds right?  All right, back to work I go, here's hoping I don't end up like this guy by the time this rain is done!


Outfit rundown:
Shirt - Express, thrifted
Necklace - b. (a resale shop)
Pants - Alfani, Macy's
Sandals - Mootsie Tootsie

  8. I LOVE this necklace. Sorry about the rain. We're dealing with a heat wave that's going to end in a storm. The sunshine is nice, the bugs and humidity - not so much.
