Living in a small town surrounded by woods, I would never call myself a fashionista… Not that people don’t care about how they look, heels just aren’t practical on dirt roads. I didn’t grow up here, so somewhere deep down there’s a little part of me that still likes clothes and dressing up. This desire just usually gives way to chaco sandals and yoga pants… I am super thankful my whole life isn’t dictated by style and my budget is super thankful too. Yet every-once in a while I get sucked in and this is how my brain thinks…a conversation with my husband. me: “I really like this blouse” (looking at sites online – of course) a: “yeah, that’s cool” (not really paying attention) me: “It looks like this ceramic artist’s work that I have been spotting on pinterest. ” (now looking on pinterest for said picture) a: (looking over trying to catch up and connect what I just said to the photos now in front of him.) “I don’t think I could ever buy you clothes.” What? Can’t you see they’re the same thing! So I have no idea when I will wear it or where to but I bought it for myself… and a new pair of heels.

One response to “same thing”
- Going to see Incredibles 2 for Father’s Day... these folks were ahead of us, feeling like our family is underdressed 😳!Sometimes you just need to take the matter into your own hands... I’ve been wanting to paint a cornhole set for some time. I was giddy when I saw this class offered at my local Home Depot. Tonight I built my own boards... now to choose a design. Let the lawn games begin!The early bird gets the shmear. The little one wanted to get up early and be one of the first fifty people at a new Einstein’s by our house. The older child chose to sleep in. I’m thinking natural consequences may come into play at some point...Behind the smiles there were a few tears... We loved our neighbors on Thornhill; these girls and their mamas! They were such an answer to prayer when we moved here. We have been renting in Colorado for the last two years and the owner wanted to move back in. 😓Thankfully we were able to find a new home to purchase nearby and make it a bit more of our own. Trusting the bond that was formed and biker gang will never be broken!Last day of school!!! So proud of my gold metal academic girls, they rocked their classes with perfect scores.We woke up early this morning to watch the royal wedding. This afternoon we toasted the new couple with high tea and fascinators!
