Even our own little garden seems to be giving us a lot lately. Everyday I head out there to find plenty of tomatoes and a decent amount of kale.
Amazed by:: How green everything looked on our recent trip to a local park.We've gotten so much rain here lately and everything is looking so lush and alive.
Scared by:: How old my son is looking.He'll be eleven in July and starts middle school in the fall. I'm appropriately freaked out.
He doesn't show up in my blog too much anymore. He's usually off doing big kid stuff. It's nice when I can sneak a photo of him.
Pondering the possibilities of:: My new-to-me vintage skirt. Found on the side of the road in a box of (mostly boring) yard sale leftovers.
I love the tag in this skirt. It reads in large letters, "Made in the USA. Union Made. ILGWU." Which stands for International Ladies Garment Workers Union. A rare find indeed.
At first glance I was a bit worried about the fit and possible dowdiness of this skirt. The size is perfect but it comes up high on the waist, whereas I'm used to wearing things slightly low on my hips. Plus, the length is just below the knee, which definitely has the potential to make me look matronly. But I think I can pull it off as long as I slightly skank it up with a tight top and some fishnets. Now if only I had somewhere to go other than the grocery store.
Watching:: Tadpole. Weird and slightly icky.
Enjoying:: The girl's beach findings.I've caught her playing with them and giving them personalities as if they are little ocean life action figures. The butterfly shaped shells are called coquinas, and as a little girl, I used to be fascinated by them. (read more about coquinas here if interested)
Slightly obsessed with:: The trailer to New Moon which can be found here. Holy mother of pearl how am I going to wait until November 20th to see this movie!? It's going to be a long summer.
