outfit of the day(bird): deep sleep




dress ~ Express, thrifted
shoes ~ GoJane
necklace ~ Heartbreaker

i love taking the bus to and from work. it's my 20 minutes of quiet time in the morning and afternoon. i get to read and relax, close my mind to everything that's going on around me, and just sit back and let someone else take me home for a mere $3.

there are times when i get so relaxed on the way home from work that i fall asleep. yesterday was one of those times. i was reading my book and started to do the head bob thing, and before i knew it, i was fast asleep. like really fast asleep. asleep so hard that i woke up with morning breath. unfortunately, i was in one of the seats that faces sideways and not forward, so when the bus driver almost hit the car in front of us and slammed on the brakes, there was nothing in front of me to stop me. i jerked awake with maybe a small "huh?wha?" and fell to my side. not enough to fall off the seat, but enough to elicit a chuckle from the two men next to me who surely heard me snoring just 30 seconds before.

not embarrassing at all.

happy friday!

  7. I take the bus every day, and I end up falling asleep on it quite a bit. Once I woke up to find that I was resting my head on this poor old lady's shoulder...definitely embarrassing!

  8. I used to take naps on the subway to and from work when I lived in the city (but I was never in such a deep sleep that I'd miss my stop). I miss that time now that I have to drive to work here.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. Megan I love hearing stories about everyday things and this is a great little snippet into your daily life. It is these things that make us real and in your case...real funny. You look gorgeous is that first shot...I first noticed your hair and how shiny and lovey the style is. The pink accents with your adorable dress are just perfect. Have a great weekend. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  16. Oh my! Hahaha stuff like that can be embarrassing at the moment but it's often fun to look back and laugh at it. :) I love that dress, I bet it'd look cute with a pair of skinny jeans as well for a more casual look.
