chris and i went out on saturday night. it was a fairly early night, but at 11:30, we were starving. we didn't want to go far, but we also didn't want fast food. so we drove around, basically in circles, looking for a restaurant that was still open. we found nothing. so we ended up at SA. knowing SA, and being a vegetarian, i knew that the only "meal-like" food i would be able to find was an egg salad sammie. but i wanted a burrito. so chris grabbed "the bomb" burrito (seriously, that's what all 965 calories of it was called). i searched the whole store looking for something burrito like that i could eat. and i ended up at the fridge section, grabbing a stupid egg salad sammie. i saw in my peripheral vision a bald man with a blue shirt on. (that fits chris' description pretty clearly.) i turned around with the sandwich in my hand, and very loudly said, "WAA WAA", expressing my disappointment. except it wasn't chris. it was another bald man with another blue shirt on. he just looked at me oddly and calmly said, "no". instead of explaining the situation, i ran away. literally ran away with an egg salad sandwich in my hand.

then i went home and made some soup. and chris ate his whole burrito.

two birds


  1. I love the booties with socks look - so fun!


  2. oh, how embarrassing. I used to do this a lot and now DOUBLE check, just to be sure! This was a fun IM. thanks guys x

  3. Oh, I can't tell you how many times I've done that. I like that the guy simply said, "no." That's funny.:)

  4. Hahaha awkward. I had a similar situation to this recently. I was at Six Flags, and I thought my friends had gotten on the rollercoaster in the car behind me. So I turned and started saying something to them, and when I realized it wasn't them, I said loudly, "Where are my friends??" They were busting out laughing in line still. Whoops! Luckily, all the involved parties, myself included, had a good chuckle about it.

  5. LOL! I've done that before, thinking I'm talking to someone I know and have it totally be someone else!

    I love the shirt over the dress look you are both rocking! Very cute, and cute with the boots too. I'm just too warm for boots anymore, I went with sandals today!

  6. Hehe very funny. I would run away too. Cute interpretations ladies...i think you reinvented Gwyneth's outfit and made it look better. I like both dresses. Megan's cardi and nora's oversized tee are both adorable pieces. Thanks for inspiring!


  7. Baha! I have seen my husband eat The Bomb as well. And then suffered the consequences later :) Loved this story!

  8. ladies, this was such a fun one! so different and very functional for a mom!!! i love both your boots, they're adorable!

  9. Megan you are funny...I love his response. I love gwen's outfit and I love it even more on both of you. Sweet, comfy, and just my taste for on the go stylin. Have a great day! dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  10. Haha! "No"... What a confusing response! Sounds like something I would totally do! Love this sweater + skirt/dress look!

  11. That's funny. You definitely gave that guy a good story to tell.

  12. Haha, oops! I wonder what on earth that guy thought, haha. My hubby is super tall and usually pretty easy to find :)

    Both your interpretations of Gwyneth's look is spot on! Loving the boots :)

    Enter my giveaway!

  13. What a perfect inspiration! I wanted to do this... and then I put on a floral skirt yesterday and I just was not ready to show my bare white white leggs. Love these outfits!


  14. Cute! I love to see both of your styles! I like each outfit!

  15. I love how you both own the EXACT elements to make Gwyneth's outfit!

  16. that is a really funny story, but even funnier is the guy's reaction! "no." haha! i love it.
    just as much as i love your outfits. so easy and breezy. fantastic!


  17. Haha, oh dear. I hate when that happens. You think you're talking to someone and it turns out to be some rando. I always run away when that happens. Sorry you didn't find a burrito. I have been on a mexican food kick lately.

    Also, love this look on both of you. It looks so comfy and feminine at the same time. Megan - love the shoes!!

  18. That's so funny about the crying! I did something similar recently!
    You look great girls! Really good matches for her outfit! Lovely combo of casual and florals!!! Both tops are brilliant matches and particularly Megan's dress is very similar!
    And Megan, thanks for the hair-link! I really appreciate that!

  19. This is great inspiration for the week. I love the sweatshirt with the florals. Great combination.

  21. Haha! I laughed out loud when I read that the wrong bald man just said "no". I can totally picture the whole scenario :D

    You both look cute, love the casual vibe of these outfits.

  22. Oh my, what a red faced moment. I thought these things only happened to misfits like me, as my husband would shake his head and tell me. Enjoyed this week's outfit ladies, very comfortable, and I think I will wear this look a bit more now. Thank you!

  23. that story is hilarious. so funny that you just ran away. i love it! and love your outfits!! so cute!

  24. That is too funny, especially how he just said "no". I would have done the same thing as you and just ran! You both look cute and nailed this look perfectly! I'm finally joining up once again, it's been forever!

  25. I smiled big on this post =)

  26. Great looks! I would have ran too!
