Hello sweet things! Today is rainy but, in true tropical form, I still have my desk fan running. I woke up early hoping to go for that walk around the Lagoa, but it was quite wet outside so I opted out. I made myself a big bowl of oatmeal and finished watching Outlander - a new show I’ve been loving. I should probably be finding some cool Brazilian shows to dive into. I am headed out soon for a little walk while the rain has subsided. I have been wanting to go to Gávea, the neighborhood I lived in the last time I was in Rio, but today might not be the best day for that. I caught sight of the little plaza the other day on my way somewhere else and I teared up a bit. I’d like to see what has changed and what hasn’t. One of the things I’d also like to visit is PUC, the university I attended. I want to go watch the monkeys that live on the property, but they’re probably hiding out with all this rain. I wish I had some proper rain shoes but my sneakers will have to do.

Olá coisas doces! Hoje é chuvoso, mas, na forma tropical, ainda tenho meu ventilador de mesa funcionando. Eu acordei cedo esperando ir para aquela caminhada ao redor da Lagoa, mas estava bastante molhado fora assim eu optei fora. Eu fiz uma grande tigela de aveia e terminei de assistir a Outlander - um novo show que eu tenho amado. Eu provavelmente deveria estar encontrando alguns shows brasileiros legais para mergulhar. Eu estou indo em breve para uma pequena caminhada enquanto a chuva diminuiu. Eu tenho vontade de ir para a Gávea, o bairro onde morei na última vez que estive no Rio, mas hoje pode não ser o melhor dia para isso. Eu avistei a pequena praça no outro dia a caminho de outro lugar e eu rasguei um pouco. Eu gostaria de ver o que mudou e o que não mudou. Uma das coisas que eu também gostaria de visitar é a PUC, a universidade que frequentei. Eu quero ir ver os macacos que vivem na propriedade, mas eles provavelmente estão se escondendo com toda essa chuva. Eu gostaria de ter alguns sapatos de chuva adequados, mas meus tênis terão que fazer.

Mission to the desert! I really love how these photos came out. My cousin Cheyanna took all of them. She has such a good eye! In actuality Joshua Tree was so windy. My jumpsuit matched the rocks and all but really we were just trying to find a large hill that would block some of the wind! I start to feel like I'm going crazy when I'm having to squint and my hair is being blown everywhere and car doors won't stay open and ... all worth the photos later haha. I went to they gym today after work at 6:30, forgetting that it closes at 7, so I didn't really get my yayas out. I have to wake up early for a long shift tomorrow so I'm off to bed! More photos from my trip to come!

I am freaking out about the election results right now so I decided to distract myself for a few moments with a blogpost. WTF is going on right now USA?!!! Tomorrow is moving day at the office. We spent the last bit of the day packing up our desks and movers will come tomorrow to carry it all over to the new location. I'm so excited to be in a new, more spacious place! However, I may need to move outside the U.S. shortly if Trump wins ... so I won't get too settled ;). This slip dress was sent to me by and I really like it. It looked a bit pinker in the photos but I prefer the (naked) champagne color in-person. It would definitely require a slip to wear in public - doesn't leave much to the imagination if you know what I mean. 

let us pray
