it's going to be a long weekend...

... but in the most age appropriate/loveliest of ways. : ) tonight marykate & i are headed to some bar in trenton for a show (this guy i used to have a major crush on in high schools new band). and then i work tommorow before i'm off to a philly houseparty for the night with rick, ryan & ryan's friend dan. rick assures me that i will actually be able to pull my camera out without groans issued forth by himself and ryan, finally.

so, appropriate outfits have been acquired and last minute touches are in the works. most importantly i have the perfect nail polish (o.p.i for sephora in "cab fare" a totally obnoxious yellow.) and have created the raddest mix to get us appropriately psyched up. and, since i'm at work and then headed straight to mk's and have no pictures i will share said mix with you. i'm still not totally in love with the order, i think i would switch tracks 01 and 02 and something seems a little bit hinky towards the end there, but other than that i love, love.

10. "lights out" by santogold (usually i don't repeat, but she sounds totally different!)
11. "I'm not gonna teach your boyfriend how to dance with you" by black kids
