It's technically my Friday, so I felt like a jean skirt was acceptable for today! It's kind of cloudy and damp, yet warm, so I kind of went for layers too. As I said yesterday, I love the bright colors, but today I felt a craving for the muted tones of Fall. And of course, a bird never hurts either.
The last time I wore this sweater and was talking about birds, the lovely Vivienne linked me to the "Put a bird on it" segment from Portlandia. Around that same time we had some friends who had been talking about the show a lot too, so the Pants Monkey and I obtained the first two seasons and watched them all in like two weeks. And we've now gone back to watch them again, we loved it that much. We're into the weird, quirky kind of shows like that. If I had a full day with nothing to do, I'd sit and watch shows like Portlandia and Flight of the Concords all day long.
My jewelry is on track to be delivered tomorrow. It'll come while we're at the Fair darn it! Oh well, our UPS guy comes pretty late actually, so I'm not too worried about the box sitting outside all day.
I am getting so excited about the Fair tomorrow. I never went much with my parents when I was growing up, but once I started dating the Pants Monkey, I've gone every year. It's something special for he and I and we've never missed it, even when he was out of work one of the years. We love to eat all sorts of different food, but for me, I like to people watch even more. It's crazy entertaining. Also, new this year is a MN Craft Beer exhibit with beer flights and as you all know, we love beer. I told Mr. Monkey we have to be careful that we don't just spend the whole day at that booth!
I'll be sure to share my "State Fair" style! I'll leave you with the "Put a bird on it" clip if you've never seen it. I highly recommend Portlandia. It's hilarious.
