TGIF: a black-and-white slipdress with a scarf and chunky booties

Ever had one of those weeks that you thought would never end, dear readers??  Well, it’s been that kind of week for me!!

Double-booked appointments, emergency transfers, “mystery” symptoms…they’re all very regular challenges at an animal hospital; but these past few days were so busy that I didn’t even have fifteen minutes for a chai latte break!!  Then there was a midnight run to the airport on Tuesday to pick up my hubby from his business trip to Miami…and to top it off, we have a sick ferret on our hands.  Again.  🙁

Boy, do I ever feel like I’ve been working off some bad karma lately!!  But sometimes, getting a little “dolled up” – even if it’s only to grab that Starbucks that I’ve been jonesing for! – can be the perfect mini escape from all the ups and downs of the day…or week!!

When you wear scrubs on the job, a bit of glamour can do wonders for lifting flagging spirits; that, and knowing the weekend is just around the corner!!

P.S. The Fun Fashion Friday link-up happening at Fashion Should Be Fun is a wonderful way to celebrate the end of the week, too; make sure you stop by for a visit!!

      "Wolfie" is an older ferret who already had some health issues when we adopted him in February, dearest Debbie…and now it looks like things have become more serious. But we haven't given up yet; please keep us in your thoughts!! XOXO

      I wish I could say that I knitted that scarf, dearest Jodie; unfortunately, it's a skill I never learned (despite my Mom's best efforts!!) My sister sent it to me a couple of years ago for my birthday…she has great taste, doesn't she?! 🙂

      Oh my gosh, so do I…after losing three ferrets since just before Christmas, we've certainly had enough sadness around here these past six months. 🙁

      Who doesn't love a pretty slip dress…right, dearest Kelsey and Kenecha?! Especially if it's plaid!! 😉 P.S. It's been a week and a half, but Wolfie finally seems to be on the mend; thank you so much for thinking of him!! XOXO
