People, as I may have mentioned yesterday, when my husband and I were about to leave our house, it was 74 degrees outside and sunny. We went to an area college to celebrate Easter with a bunch of other Greeks (and Greek wannabes like me) in order to dance the day away (some friends were the performers). The sunniness was fleeting - and we got rained on a couple of times (although I had an umbrella) - but for much of the day, I wore only this:
Let's discuss a couple of elements here: do you see anything on my ARMS? No. I wore a cardigan for some of the rainier/cooler moments, but for the most part? Bare arms. More importantly, do you see anything on my legs?! NO! Folks, I wore nothing but my mustardy flats on my legs yesterday: no tights, no leggings, no nothing. Just a dress and a pair of shoes. Can you DIG IT?! I don't know if I can do that in the near future again (although the weather is supposed to warm up a bit), but it was wonderful while it lasted.
On another note, who expected that this dress would become such a workhorse this year? I bought it for $49.99 in September and I wore it throughout the fall, winter, and now the spring. It was a good buy.
In other news...?
... I got the job!!!!!
Early this afternoon, while I was about to start some proofing/editing on my dissertation, I got a phone call from the school I visited a scant five days ago: they offered me a full-time job teaching foreign languages. Full-time. I'm so excited! Although I said that I'm not sure that it's the place where I will work till I retire, it's where I want to work right now. I'm psyched.
... Can you imagine how many pairs of Fryes I'll now be able to buy?!
