Cleo the show pony is all "GETOUTTAMYWAY WOMAN, THIS IS MY PHOTOSHOOT"
dress: TJ Maxx, boots: Frye, scarf: gifted
this dress is made of jersey and is so comfortable. i like to wear it on the plane when we fly to LA. and my booooooooots! Mom and Dad got them for me for my birthday and i'm spectacularly excitable about them. i can't wait to wear them like, everyday this fall/winter. and HOW ABOUT THIS SCARF?! let me tell you about it. my littlest sister MM got it for me for my birthday. it might be my favorite gift ever received. and wouldn't you know it, Jane Austen's famous tête-à-têtes are printed RIGHT ON IT! "she is tolerable, but not handsome enough to temp me." i love me a Mr. Darcy quote, and now i can wear these beautiful words around my neck.
during the night my breast pad shifted and i woke up with the first place award at a wet t-shirt contest. that's the worst. i sat up in bed all harried and confused like WHAT? WHERE? WHY AM I WET?! then i have to rustle around the room half-asleep to find another nursing tank. I CANNOT WEAR ANYTHING TO BED BUT A NURSING TANK (i want to French kiss the person who invented them). it's the lazy American in me. i can't deal with all the sleeves and straps and general bullshit of a regular shirt at the devil's hour when Gemmie is screaming at me for milk.
yesterday we were out shopping for birthday presents for people we love and i found a copy of an old favorite book from my childhood HARRY THE DIRTY DOG. he is just the cutest. so obviously i had to buy it for the baby. and JJ read it to us before bed last night and it was just so cute.
also, Gemma cries every time we go to Trader Joe's. why? WHY WOULD YOU EVER CRY WHEN THERE ARE CHOCOLATE-COVERED, PEANUT BUTTER-FILLED PRETZELS IN OUR CART?! i need to teach her a thing or two about the good things in this life.
