Losing my mind

I thrifted this dress for .50 cents and by that I mean, my friend picked it out and told me I needed to buy it. I'm glad I listened because it's super comfy, flattering, and different enough from most dresses I own. I've already worn it twice this week!

I recently started watching Seinfeld and now it's all I can think about. It's a true classic.

What Jessica is Reading: Liar by Rob Roberge

I've always had a thing for non-fiction novels and especially those that deal with addiction and real life situations. Which is why I was drawn to Liar. Liar is a book about addiction, romance, friendship, relapse, and declining mental and physical health. It's a fragmented story told in the second person point-of-view. While second person POV is a really risky storytelling device -- Roberge pulls it off with ease. He is putting us, the readers, in his shoes and it allows his journey to become our journey.

Roberge is candid, funny, and hopelessly honest. Roberge's story is as unique as his writing. While this isn't my favorite memoir it certainly made me want to read more of his work.

This book was provided by Blogging For Books, however, all opinions are my own.

The kind you find in a second hand store

My friends and I have been thrifting a lot more regularly lately and the payoff has been great. I've found so many wonderful dresses and this is one of them.

I wore this to see Purple Rain in the theater to celebrate the life of Prince. I'm not much for purple, but a raspberry colored dress seemed appropriate. Prince is one of the few musicians that all my siblings and I have in common and his death has not been an easy one. We're all mourning this one. Seeing Purple Rain on the big screen was so wonderful and by the end the entire place was singing, dancing, and crying. It was the perfect tribute to such an incredible musician.

When doves cry

I wore this pretty dress to celebrate Skyla's birthday. We had brunch and made pretty floral crowns. It was a great day and what better way to celebrate a birthday than with an ice cream dress?

My hair is in a really awkward hair stage, so please forgive me while I try and tame it. Whenever I get all the tiny awkward strains in place, a gust of wind attacks and I look unruly. Can it just be a normal length yet?

Oh, and I'm over at Elana's showing off some of my favorite Spring looks!
