OOTD: Black and Gold

Ok, perhaps it should be black and khaki - but I really love that song and just wanted to quote it in my title :) I really like combining black and khaki, it just seems so put-together, don't you think?

Nicole and I had an adventure taking photos this afternoon! It is goorrgeeouss in DC today, in the 70s and sunny, so I suggested we go to this fire escape! Homecoming weekend we had seen it while looking for a good vantage point to see the football game and were this close to climbing it, until we saw some man standing up a few levels, and we thought maybe we shouldn't try it. But we decided that some day we would climb this fire escape - and today we did! It was quite an adventure, until we saw some guy in a golf cart looking at us and decided that it would be a good time to leave... fun times :)

And some photos of my lovely photographer Nicole! I really like the dress she is wearing today. 

So funny story about Nicole. She gets like no sleep. She goes to bed around 3 every morning I think and gets up around 8:30 or so to eat breakfast with me. So last night she decided to take a nap. At 7 I knocked on her door since we had plans to get dinner. I knocked several times, left a few texts, and after no answer (I didn't know she was napping at the time), I just went to dinner with a friend who was already there. About 10 minutes after I got back, I hear a knock on my door and a bleary-eyed Nicole asked if I had gotten her up for dinner. Yes Nicole, I tried. Then I sent her a text later that night asking if she wanted to get breakfast at the normal time, and as there was no response either way I decided to go knock on her door at 9:30 to see if she was coming to breakfast - her roommate answered the door and said she was sleeping. So I went with her roommate to breakfast. Sooo, basically she slept through two consecutive meals she was supposed to have with me! Oh well, I suppose she needed her sleep. It was just an amusing turn of events :)

I'm going to New York tomorrow! I can't wait - I'm trying to get a fair amount of homework done before I leave, and some I can do on the bus, but I just want to get there and enjoy myself. I want to shop, go out to eat, and go to museums. It's going to be such a fun change of pace. And after that, my family coming, and then my friend from California is coming... I am just going to be so busy! But I'm looking forward to it :)

I'm going to go out and enjoy the weather, perhaps go read on the lawn? Enjoy your afternoon!
