Rainy Days and Mondays

Today I woke up to gloomy skies and raindrops on my window. Ahh, good weather :) I love snuggling into my warm comforter with that kind of atmosphere outside. It just feels so cozy. I guess I love it because it's reminiscent of stormy days in grade/ high school when classes got canceled and I got to sleep in. It's also my favorite kind of weather for staying in with the boyf, cuddling under a warm blanket, with takeout and a bunch of dvds that promise the best rainy-day entertainment. 

I was feeling glum yesterday, therefore dressing in all black. I don't think I can ever dress purely in neutral hues, so I stuck to accessories to add some color. The result is a very casual, boring outfit. There was a good side to it though, which I discovered later on. We had an oral presentation in my Fashion Advertising class, and we were all in black! Purely coincidental.

trying to balance my laptop ;))

There was something that lifted my spirits though.. Vogue and Teen Vogue November! I fell in love with the covers, and although I have been holding myself from buying another magazine (Vogue) until I finished my current one (Nylon), this time I just couldn't help myself. I justified my purchase by rationalizing that I needed the Vogue for examples of ads that I needed to show the class. and Teen Vogue was just a pick-me-up :)

And then I got home to find this. 

aww, and what was inside was even better...

Pasta!! my all-time favorite food! :) one of them anyway.
Spaghetti Al Funghi from Pizzaioli. yum yum yum yum! I had it with some leftover Chinese (chicken fillet) while I was tuned in to OTH. Yes, I know I have weird eating habits. But I swear, those crispy chicken strips were so good with my pasta!

I had such a good night's sleep. Thank God for cheap thrills, take home dinners, good tv shows, and one boy in particular.

Oh...Lovely black outfit...I love your boots!!! They look so cute and comfy!

I love pasta too!! I look forward to Sunday's when hubby and I experiment on new pasta dishes, or if we ever get lazy... we end up dining out and having pasta at either Cibo or Italliani's or if get feel much more sluggish... we have Yellow Cab Charlie Chan Chicken pasta with 4 cheese Pizza, hot wings and potato wedges (buuurp.. ok I'm a pig -- oops!). That little goody bag is just so cute!! One of the reasons why I miss my mom are those little post-it notes she would leave on the fridge or on the table with "This is for you..." or "Check out the Ice Cream..." that welcomed me oftentimes.
