My mom and I have some of the best play dates. I wrote more of the details on my personal blog, over at Like A Small Fire, but here are the outfit deets
When I first wore this dress around my mom, she made the astute comment that I needed a shirt that matched it better. So when she was coming over for our trip to scope out Goodwills and furnish my art room, I figured I’d throw on the dress and we could see if anything appropriately matching came out. We were thinking something along the lines of a mauvey-lavender purple.
Dress: thrifted | Sweater & TIghts: Target | Shirt: inherited from my sister | Boots: Mishoes
We found something that should work, so you’ll probably see this dress again. I think that’s like three times on the blog. Hopefully you aren’t all harboring some secret grudge against my repetition. Because that would be… Well, it’d be a little sad. But if it makes you feel better, I found two dresses at Goodwill, so those will be nice and new for the blog. Just for you, guys, just for you.
I mean, not in the way you think. My favorite brown sweater and my only pair of jeans ripped on the same day, so my mom graciously agreed to replace them.

I wore this outfit on a breakfast date with David and my mom, and it was met with her approval. 🙂 To the point where she asked if I had taken photos of it for the blog yet. I think it’s really fun(ny) when IRL people ask about the blog. Anyway, this outfit post is for her!
We spent the weekend pet sitting for a couple we know through my sister’s in laws, and oh my gosh. They had the cutest doggie! I mean, sure, I’m partial to my own pooches, but I’ve never seen David go gaga for a dog that way. He’s not much of an animal person.
It was adorable. And I totally have way too many photos of the animals. I narrowed it down to my top favorite of each pet. Indulge me?
Just like cuddling Fluffy
My sister and I had matching stuffed animal versions of this breed when we were growing up. Her’s was named Fifi and mine’s name was Fluffy (I was the younger child, don’t judge). It was definitely my favorite stuffed animal for years.
I’m not even really a fan of cats at all (with very limited exceptions) but this guy was a total sweetie. He’s an older cat, and too lazy to finish his meows. He’d just give you a little baby-eyed look and croak a little, so I couldn’t resist picking him up and going the full monty and head-butting with him while we cuddled.

I run around this lake every morning that David and I are capable of being mature adults and follow through on our promise to run around the lake. It happens maybe twice a week, if we’re really committed. Now that he leaves at 6:30 AM for his new job, though, I imagine it will happen pretty much never. Which means I have to do it alone. Which means I’m not going to do it. Or I’ll pout. A lot.
These were from that great day where Kels visited my corner of the city. It was lovely. She let me whine and moan about all my trivial life problems, and she even procured a San Pelegrino for me. Because that’s true friendship, folks. In return I took stunning photos of her, and she reciprocated marvelously.
This was one of those days where it looked really warm out, and it almost felt really warm out, but in fact it was too chilly to go barelegged. I compromised with Mother Nature, though, and opted for boots. I’ve been living in these boots. Almost literally. My life feels so boring that I’ve filled an entire post talking about clothes and then I remember that’s what I’ve always done, and this is really no different.

For those who are super curious, my alternate blog is so friggin’ close to being finished and ready for it’s re-entry into the Blogging Society. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do all the design myself, in my stubborn I-don’t-need-to-look-at-tutorials way. My goal is by the end of the week. So if you’re just itching to read my book reviews and ranty-tangents, then by golly, have I got something for you! Oh also, stay tuned for a lovely sweet surprise tomorrow!
