what do you think?
rock creek is gorgeous... so nice and greeeeeen.
the earring ladies
oh and these i made with danish kroner (denmark's currency). the coins come with holes in the middle. how perfect!
any dormant hobbies you've picked up again recently?
when ben & i were dating (and even when we weren't) i always wrote him a note on my in n out receipts. mostly to brag about the awesome meal i just had :) so i wrote him a note on saturday at in n out.
it really has never tasted so good.
vanilla shake. i live for it.
dear in n out,
you are the west's best.
stay sweet, never change. see you next year! (hehe or in december :))
here are all the cuties again. yesss i love them.
we're sooo glad we were able to go. even though it was such a short trip, we got to be with some of our favorite people--- and definitely our favorite babies!! even though my oldest niece is almost 5, i still see them all as babies. new baby paige on the left with her mom and new baby jane on the right with me :)
i loooove it. thanks so much kellie jo!!
my favorite part about the postcard was... since it was written in 1952, the sender only had to put the recipients' names and their town. no address. so cool right? like the post office got it back then and said, oh yes, Mr & Mrs Rawlings.
p.s. happy friday!
we're off to Utah for the weekend. Can you believe it? We're stoked.
and one of my loves was:
"our favorite little custard shop was closed last night because their 'dairy truck was lost in the midwest' "so we went back to the dairy godmother and took our sweet friends.
we all got the flavor of the day, which wasn't a mistake. banana pudding.
that's happy-ness right there. isn't he cuuute :)
so now i feel all better. sugar always does it for me. what's your little comfort?
we very much enjoyed driving through the tiny towns of west virginia and enjoying the houses and farms as we passed. this totally says "west virginia" for me.
i hope your day is going well :)
ben must've been swatting a fly or doing something manly, but i was doing the pensive-staring-into-the-fire thing. loved it.
roasting marshmallows... a sweet benefit of fascinating fire :) mmmmm
i love when the fire turns purple near the end. ohh how i love it
isn't fire so cool? (hehehe, i'm easily amused)
and we mourned the loss of the tj's organic steak sauce. silly trader joe's: always discontinuing things we take advantage of.
i will curse if they discontinue the spicy black bean dip.
we then went to see julie & julia at our new favorite little movie theater.
it was so enjoyable.
and meryl... well... this article said it best:
Julia Child could whip up a navarin of lamb for lunch, but Meryl Streep eats young actresses for breakfast. Remember Anne Hathaway in “The Devil Wears Prada”? Amanda Seyfried in "Mamma Mia"? Neither do I.
"Someday I will have a best friend, all my own. One I can tell my secrets to. One who will understand my jokes without my having to explain them. Until then I am a red balloon, a balloon tied to an anchor."
"Marin, under the streetlight, dancing by herself, is singing the same song somewhere. I know. Is waiting for a car to stop, a star to fall, someone to change her life."
on friday we finally tried the illustrious jazz in the national sculpture garden. another reason why i love free things, courtesy of the smithsonian institution.
we brought a little picnic (like i said) and enjoyed lovely conversation with friends and new acquaintances.
i was so overjoyed when we then decided to go to teaism and get a beverage. isn't teaism the cutest name for a little tea shop?
did you picnic this weekend?
happy sunday, loves!
go have a picnic this weekend! enjoy summer!
we're planning on having another picnic tonight :)
happy weekend, lovelies!
