unhealthily large portions

6:15 pm: I'm dashing to and from a family party to write this post. I will have to write in short intervals so my family doesn't suspect anything (although when they all read this, my secret will be out.)

6:27 pm: My dad is talking about how my dog killed a squirrel. For the fortieth time.

6:31 pm: The bread is being served. Don't expect me back for a while.

6:35 pm: Oh my God scratch that it's being toasted.

7:17 pm: Dinner is being eaten. Discussing the best burgers, The Cheesecake Factory, and my cousin's insatiable cravings for a guitar and a cast-iron skillet.

7:43 pm: I'm forgetting that this is an outfit post and I still have to upload pictures.

7:58 pm: I am eating Nilla wafers for dessert, adults talking about True Blood, Mad Men. IT'S ALL THEY EVER TALK ABOUT.

8:34 pm: Cracking out Apples to Apples. It's about time.

9:27 pm: Finished Apples to Apples. My grandmother's boyfriend wins on his first time playing.

9:31 pm: Everyone has left. Now let me upload my pictures!
