My Day in Pictures

The day before the last day of James being off. He has had like 5 days in a row off and Ive been loving it! Our friends were down and visiting for most of it, but today and tomorrow we have to ourselves.

Today we took a drive to Lakehills to visit his parents. Something we wanted to do while he was off. We ate some lunch while we were there and then tracked around in the creek where he grew up. We love doing this. I found out that I am a horrible rock skipper, he tried giving me lessons and I failed miserably. This is something I should know how to do! I mean come on, I am a country girl!!!

James was in his old bedroom looking through old stuff, and I went outside and made him look out the window! I have always loved this window. It is a huge old iron window pane, the kind that cranks. He used to have a big sleeping back tacked to the wall to cover the window when we were in high school. I remember coming to visit him when we were friends, and not wanting to leave his bedroom. Oh, and the orange bracelet on his wrist has been there for like 8 years!
He found his old Garbage Pail kids collection! He has so many of them, they fill up a 'Chipmunks' lunchbox :)
I wore my new Poor Pitiful Pearl Oxy today! I love it so much! And I broke out one of my mom's Broken China Jewelry necklaces, it is one of my favorites, it's a Botecelli painting we found on china!
down by the creek...
wearing my mom's sandals...
um, yeah, thats a stick in my mouth :)
my favorite grasses ever! {i am obsessed with dead grass}
and I wore pigtails today. still havent dyed my hair yet, been a little lazy about it, but soon!
love this brick wall :)
Also added some newbies to the shop, go check them out:

And I finally made it into a treasury and named it BOHEMIAN BUTTERFLY:
