First Solo Attempt!

So these are the first pictures I took by myself.  Clearly, there is going to be a learning curve.  I hadn't bought my remote yet, though, so I was running back and forth with only every other picture being in focus.

This weekend is what my step-sister Courtney has called "family palooza," with a graduation and a wedding all lumped together.  I'll be missing the big company picnic tomorrow, but the rain has sort of spoiled that, since it was supposed to be out in the country with a creek to swim in.  Today I was in an all day training at the BGC East Club - and it was a REFRIGERATOR.  I'm still waiting for my toes to thaw.  I'm anti-arctic air.

Dress: BB Dakota (clearance from Beyond Cotton in Little Rock a few years ago, it makes me feel patriotic)
Shoes: BCBG
Locket: Found in my grandmother's things, or my mom's.  I'm not sure, as I brought this into my possession when I was a freshman in high school.  It reminds me of living in the Netherlands.

I hope everyone has been well!  Any big plans this weekend?  It'll be my first summer ever that I have to work.  I became a teacher right after graduate school, and over the summer I worked summer enrichment courses or taught summer school for extra money.  Now there's no vacation in sight and I'm wondering how people do this!?

Entirely not related, but here's what my ipod is playing for me, and I love it:
