scorpion killer

i killed* my first scorpion today. does that make me an official texan?

*and by killed i mean spotted, screamed on the inside, ranalked (ran/walked…what? that’s a thing) to get the only male staff member here today, and watched him kill it with his flip flop. turns out my wedges would have done an acceptable job. thankfully i kept my promise and wasn’t wearing my favorite shoes today. i might have lost the epic battle of scorpion v. caitlin.

what i wore wednesday. one of the many reasons i love wednesdays.

    I would freak out if I saw a scorpian. YOu are awesome. We used to live in Texas and would freak out any time I saw a cockroach. I love this cute polished outfit!

      Ewww. Thankfully I haven’t seen any of those, but I’m more scared of the scorpions, tarantulas, and snakes sneaking about. Blech.

    love your look – a great pencil skirt & structured shirt is always a winner. and i’m glad there was someone else around to help you kill that scorpion, yikes. that’s not something i would ever want to encounter!

      Thank you, Heidi! I know…I hope you never have to! Honestly, I would have just run the other way if there was no one willing to get it. I still get shivers thinking about that thing.
