A beautiful day...

I feel like almost every blog I read is gushing about the beautiful weather that has been happening all over the country this week. And I'm going to talk about it too! It was perfect outside today. While Travis ran a few errands I spread out a blanket in the back yard and took the girls out to enjoy the weather.

Travis brought me home this plaid blanket last week. I love it!
I thought they might run around the yard but they pretty much just wanted to sit in my lap.
Do you read Bust? I think it is the best magazine out today. I wish it was monthly!
Miss Priscilla. Can you tell we shaved her? She looks pretty much the same.
My face, enjoying the 75 degree weather with perfect light breeze. Can you tell I got a haircut?
Oh Phyllis! How can she be so cute? That vintage doll bed in the background is a project I'm working on. I'll show you soon! I hope it turns out as cute as I'm imagining.
You can see the spots on her skin through her shorter hair.

And we left a little tuft on the end of her tail, like a sweet little lion. 

This morning I thought I had to darkroom reserved, but it turned out I had it reserved for tomorrow. Since we were already out we went to a meat and three we'd heard good things about (it was really mediocre sadly) and went to the Goodwill outlet. I had this weird feeling that I was going to find something related to E.T. and kept my eyes peeled. Then I saw it. An ET COSTUME, with a big stuffed head that you wear as a hat, and a glowing finger. Sadly, I saw it in someone else's cart. I've never had a feeling like that before when thrifting. And I can't believe that costume was communicating with me and I missed out! Our last couple trips to the outlet have been really fruitful though. I can't wait to show you what we've found!


  1. Oh my god, this shot is killing me! I want to enjoy Spring this way! Instead, it's just killing me. Oh my god, the pollen... We were supposed to do fun stuff this weekend but instead, I'm in my sick bed with that same issue of Bust that came yesterday and a big dose of cough syrup. Sad irony.

    p.s. That is CRAZY about the ET costume!

    1. you know what, i used to have the WORST allergies, as in, weekly allergy shots, but as I've gotten older they have really mellowed out. I hadn't even really thought about it until just now. I also use my neti pot a LOT to keep those passages free of pollen.

      I am still crying about ET! if you ever see one GET IT FOR ME and I'll pay you back!

  2. I agree with Eartha. I'm jealous! It would be delightful to relax in the backyard with a glass of sweet tea and bask in the sunshine. However, everything outdoors is covered with light green pollen and the sneaky stuff manages to get into the house. It's so bad this year my indoor-only cats have been sneezing.

    The doll bed looks interesting. Can't wait to see what you're going to do with it!

    1. I really can't believe the pollen this year hasn't been bothering me. I've been using my neti pot a lot, I think it is really helping!

  3. Oh the sunshine looks like such a good thing! I would just love it!

  4. Do you remember Sassy? It was pretty much the most epic awesome magazine ever. Then Jane came after.

    They may be before your time...since you are just a young'
