This sweetly simple tank would go well with the pants, don't you think?

Here are the pants. Classic style with just enough of a twist! There is such a urban and european cool to them. 

Me time!

I usually get a couple hours break a day from my 24 hr. job. (Not that I am complaining, this truly is my dream job!) I get to veg in front of the computer and drink a lovely hot mug of decaf coffee or some yummy cocoa. Surf the net and sigh over all things fashion and the beautiful world of bloggers! 

Side note: There is this person who drives a muffler-less and ugly car down our street at least once if not twice a day. EVERY time they drive by they rev their engine and if Charles car is parked out there it sets off the alarm. It is ever so irritating! Grrrrrr! Ok, I feel a bit better now.

So back to bloggers.... I have always been a rather curious person, many spankings have ensued from my constant explorations as a child. (I would wonder how mom had caught me! As I rubbed black soot from my face, from the attic. Haha, I wonder what else gave away my antics.) And being a part of the blog-verse helps to satisfy my ever-loving curiosity. I even thought about becoming a scientist before, they get to explore soooo much! But then, I failed chemistry and did not do well at all in math! So thank you! To all the other life chroniclers out there, I love you!!

Izzy being goofy!

She just started sticking her tongue out the side of her mouth. Man, it is the cool new thing to do!! ;-)

I have to confess! The reason my daughter is so happy and full of energy, wait, every kid is full of energy, haha.

The secret is.... I give her mountain dew every morning! She plays with the bottle and it starts her day off right! Heehee, just kidding, I only give it to her sometimes.

Isn't it funny how children love the unconventional toy. And yet people pay so much money buying them actual toys? She does like her baby toys, they just get boring.

Mountain Dew!

Mountain Dew!

I was browsing through the VS swimsuit catalog and was struck with the need to get in shape. I think I am now in the worst shape ever, after having Izzy. So I have worked out 3 days in a row then took the last 2 days off because my awesome parents dropped by on their way home. They were out vacationing for.... 1 whole month!!! I used to go with them on those! 

I think this gorgeously clear and crisp day must be the coldest we've had yet! And we got snow for the third time this winter!

Edelweiss origami flower

The whole time I was making it I was singing the song from 'The Sound of Music' in my head.

If your dryer breaks...

Set up your own clothes line in your library. I am excited to see how much electricity we will be saving. 

You know there are certain things that are easy money savers. But because of the media they are viewed as signs of poverty. Like hanging up your clothes on the line. I don't have a yard so I can't, but if I did I would. ^-^
