rust and bows

we live in a small town. and when we learned that one of our local little grocery stores was shutting down, we were more than a little sad. because nothing is cooler than unique local spots with old rusty trucks and vintage coke bottles and old-timey gas pumps. at least we got to snap a few pics before saying goodbye to garrett's groceries forever.

{having a ball}

we really are girly-girls at heart. we put bows on our christmas tree. sue us. we like sparkles and lace and dancing until our feet ache at balls full of beautiful people. at the end of the day, we like having a ball. seriously, what's not to love?

{stripe} right there

sometimes i forget that not everyone thinks of stripes as a neutral, and i am shocked all over again. i mean, i wear stripes with color, polka dots, and, when i'm feeling especially risky... with other stripes! just a word of advice to all the ladies out there: don't fear stripes, befriend them! (actually, best friend them) and yes, i am wearing this necklace again. i live on the edge.

{chartreuse} kidding me?

colored pants are probably my most favorite thing in the world. because what's more fun than showing up at a party with chartreuse (or cerulean or poppy or  emerald) colored pants? nothing, people. nothing beats the joy of being the "crazy pants" girl. the kids love it.

as if i had an office

sometimes i wonder what it would be like to have an office job. not the boring "paper filing," "coffee fetching" stuff, but the part where you get to dress all professionally and whatnot. i just want to wear a pencil skirt and heels and not be stared at! is that too much to ask for? and in case anyone was wondering what i really wear while "working"... fuzzy pants and fuzzy socks are the usual uniform.

a rose {by any other name}

i have the best piano students ever. because not only did they do a fantabulous job at their recital the other night, but they gave me roses. rose(s). as in plural. i'm so blessed by their love and i'm so proud of their absolutely fabulous taste.

we love {weddings}

we love weddings. we love dressing up. we love eating food (especially cake). we love dancing until we have to kick our heels off. we love seeing love. and we really just love being with each other.
