Rain Rain Go Away

I realize we need rain for life and growth and all that jazz, but I hate the rain. I mean, hate it with a passion. I don't like the sound of it, I don't like the smell of it, I can't stand driving in it. I don't do a whole lot during the week. Mon, Wed, Fri I go to school and Tues and Thurs I usually sit at home all day reading for my classes. Why is it the day I decide I want to leave the house to go buy some jeans, maybe get a pedicure, is the day it rains? Now I don't feel like going anywhere. But I really need new jeans. I have 2, count em just 2, pairs that fit me right now. How sad is that?

On that same note, I need a shopping buddy. I had one right out of high school- that friend you can call up and say "Hey I need some new clothes. Wanna go to the mall?" Now I shop by myself. My schedule is odd, so most of the people I know are at work when I'm off and off when I'm at work. Shopping by yourself is just not as fun.

And speaking of shopping, one of my goals for this year is to do a closet makeover. I want to make my closet say Tara. Right now, it's a big mish mash of clothes. I go through my closet every couple of months and donate clothes. I want to be able to look in my closet and be able to pick out any piece and feel good wearing it. Right now, I have only a few items that I feel great in and that means those items get over worn. I know it will take time. I'm not made of money after all, but by the end of this year I would like to have a closet that shouts "ME"


  1. don't feel bad... I only have three pairs that I wear on a regular basis, because it's too much work to try to stretch the others out to the point where they're comfortable.

    I actually like shopping by myself... I feel like I get more accomplished when I'm not distracted by others. plus, when I shop with my friends, they help me to justify purchases that are not necessary. haha!

  2. I feel ya on the rain. But at least it isn't snow!

    I don't have any friends to shop with either...:( But sometimes I get more done shopping by myself. But it's just not as fun.

  3. I hate the smell too... it's so... musty.

  4. ahhhh I don't know what you fools are talking about.. I LOVE RAIN! I LOVE TORNADOES TOO!! I don't know why i felt the need to shout that, but i did. Maybe I'm just in a ridiculously good mood. Either way.. I need new jeans too!!

  5. I'm so sad. I love rain! Warm rain. I like hearing it at night. I do hate driving in it & I hate that it rains on the weekend so I can't enjoy the beautiful weather outside that happened all week.

    With shopping, it all depends. Some days I'd rather go by myself. I can get in and out and look at what I want to. Other times, I love shopping with my best friend. Guess it all depends on my mood, and what all I'm shopping for.
