Farewell Blanche...

Dorothy: Wait, Blanche, honey, aren't you forgetting something?
Blanche: Oh, no, I never wear underwear.

............................................................................................................................
Blanche: I do love the rain so. It reminds me of my first kiss...
Dorothy: Ah, your first kiss was in the rain?
Blanche: No, it was in the shower.

...........................................................................................................................
Blanche: What do you think of my new dress? Is it me?
Sophia:  It's too tight, it's too short and shows too much cleavage for a woman your age.
Dorothy: Yes, Blanche. It's you!



The Golden Girls was one of my favorite shows growing up, and I still watch it almost every night while going to bed. I remember getting to see the house when I was in Florida in 6th grade as a part of Disney's Hollywood Studios. Anyway, today I decided to throw on my best '80s dress and act like I'm on the lanai...
Dress - thrifted Joy Gordon, shortened by me (just like Blanche would do! Make it shorter!)
Belt - thrifted
Shoes - Charles David
(Yes, I had to take a picture at work again due to the construction dudes in my condo)


I am excited for a relaxing weekend! Last weekend was fun but it was still a lot of running around getting stuff for different parties and BBQs and whatnot. This weekend I am doing nothing but biking, baseball, and hanging out by the pool (I hope!) Only one week of school left! I found a job - the nurse who was supposed to work summer school isn't doing it anymore, so I'll be there from 8am to 12pm! That's it! EVERY summer I have worked like 40 hours a week waitressing and bartending, so this will be such a relaxing summer. I'll pick up some extra hours with my special needs buddy, but otherwise I'll be putting all my energy into my etsy! Yay!

Congrats on your new job!

I was a pretty big GG fan and was so sad to hear about Rue McClanahan. I love your dress and it's such a great tribute.

This is a fantastic tribute to Blanche.

Congrats on the job! I'm not teaching or being a research assistant this summer for the first time in four years, and I am going to enjoy the easy-going schedule.

I loved watching Golden Girls with my mom when I was growing up. I'm going to miss Rue McClanahan, I STILL watch Golden Girls when I can and it always makes me feel good to remember those times with my mom. Your dress is such a great tribute and it's spot on!

(I've been reading your blog for a while and thought I was a follower, but I wasn't! So now I am. Grats on the relaxing summer job!) :)

Kinda jealous that your summer job has awesome hours. I have slack hours in the fall but spring, summer and fall kill me...
Love the dress though!

I've been watching reruns of that show and it holds up so well. Still funny after all these years.
