And to conclude, I want to share with the world what a TRUE weird girl I am... and reveal a photo of myself from yesterday that probably should have never seen the light of day. But I am weirdly in love with it, so whatever. Here, in all my glory, is me, on a day when I did not have to leave the house.... So my outfit just got weirder and weirder as necessity dictated:


What you are seeing:
1.Blue snowman PJ pants... This is how I started the day.
2. Orange shirt... To be a bit more modest
3. Added the orange and red apron when I cooked lunch
4. Added ther black fleece vest when our apt. got chilly
5. Added the green and pink argyle slippers... also beecause it was chilly
6. Added the headband when my short hair kept getting in my eyes...

And TA-DA! I am a fool. A dork.... But a fun fool, and a silly dork, and those are the best kinds.

here's hoping YOUR weekend was full of silly moments, quiet hours at home, productive to-do-list checking off, and lots of music and fun, as mine was.

I'm off now, to go play with my boys!

  8. ur adorable.

    Oh my gosh... I have to confess I haven't checked your photography website lately... Kirsten's pictures are INCREDIBLE. I am in aw of how perfect they are, for her... in general. I LOVE THEM!! I know you are overwhelmed right now ( in the photo sense, booked up, you know? ) but mark down that in April, I'll make a special trip up for them, and I want to do something with that as the inspiration... You did such an awesome job... congrats on how well this is going for you, im blown away!!!

  9. I love the picture. . . LOVE it. There are a couple of things that I especially love:

    #1-- That you honestly have Christmas lights hanging around the top of your bed.

    #2-- That you didn't take that apron off AFTER lunch, but made it part of the ensemble.

    You are amazing.

  11. I love the whimsy! and of course, the xmax lights. What a wonderful Sunday afternoon at your house. Just the kind of warmth I need to forget about the biting cold outside.
