So I had a craptastic morning yesterday. I was feeling like a loser and a bum and needed to get out of the house. I drove into Helena for some things, and on a whim I decided to stop at Maurices and do a little retail therapy. That's where I found these two pieces of cute!
This one is the first thing I tried on. SO CUTE! It's actually the first strapless dress I've worn/bought and I'm way excited about it.
This one is also super cute. I don't know if you can really tell, but it's black with little white polka dots. It also has a sash belt thingy which you can see dangling off to the left there, but I think I like it better without it. That has yet to be decided.
I'm so excited about these because I never buy - or wear for that matter - dresses. I got them with purpose though, for the opening night parties in Bigfork. I'll make sure to take pics of them on, they look a lot better. More like a dress and less like...big square pieces of fabric. *makes note to self that one should not be a square and to work out more*
So what is this about Bigfork you say? Well it's only my most favorite place ever. This will be my third year working there as a scenic artist, and truth be told, I'm stoked. This is a big season for them, it's their 50th anniversary! And there's going to be a huge reunion with as many people from the past 50 years that can make it. I think there's over 900 so far! I'm so proud to be a part of that. I almost wasn't though, because I had told myself it wasn't smart. The job only lasts until July, and then...what? What do I do? With most of the places in Missoula hiring around May/June, I thought that I would wind up taking the Bigfork job and then come back to Missoula only to live in a box down by the river because there would be no work. Lucky me though, I'm blessed. I know this. And I do sometimes take it for granted, but I am always appreciative. I called Michael's and told them I had this other job that would only take me till July, and they told me, "Well just call when you're ready to come over, we'll make room for ya!" Really?!? Wow. That's awesome. I can have my cake and eat it too. AND, when I was doing my dress shopping yesterday, I was talking to the ladies in Maurices and they said they loved their job and it was a great place to work. So I asked them if their Missoula store would be hiring in July. The boss-lady called over there and she said.... yes! They gave me an application to fill out and told me to come back in to take the personality survey, this way everything is done and all I have to do is show up to the Missoula store with a big smile and say "I'm ready! Hire me!" Super huh? I'm planning on going back next week...because that's when my coupons go into effect. :D Ah, spending money I don't have...the joys. So yeah, things are looking up!
"Things are looking up. It's a great little world we live in. Oh I'm happy as a pup since love looked up at me."
Anybody know that one? That's from a show I worked on my first year in Bigfork actually. I'll most definitely post some photos of the area when I get up there (May 6th). And anyone who thinks they'd like a nice summer getaway, please check out the website for the Bigfork Summer Playhouse. They really have a killer season this year! If you can, come on up and see a show. The view of the lake alone is worth it. ;)
