...is what I was hoping Mr. Newsfeed would say when he saw my outfit this morning.
but he didn't. So I told him I obtained this dress for free dollars and free cents at the Texas Style Council Conference swap. If this is your dress, thank you. It is much loved in its new home.
Then, he became much more appreciative of it.
I'm in love with orangy red right now. I think my kelly green phase has faded into this obsession the way that the cells in your eyeballs trick you into seeing red after you stare at green long enough then look away at a white wall. I'm so enamored of this red color that my dress and nails are matching for our family outing to the farmers market and antique shopping trip downtown. My mom would be so proud. She'll never know though because she refuses to use a computer. She calls me every few days insisting that I'm a terrible daughter because I don't print off all the pictures of Max everyday and mail them to her. I should mention that I've given this woman two computers and she gave them both away because she says that "you can't depend on computers; you can only depend on yourself." That's fine. She just really shouldn't count on my ability to mail things either. The recipients of the Electric Elmo swap boxes can attest to my deficiency in this area. Those are still sitting packed on my dining room table kids.
Max found a rocking chair that he wanted at the antique mall.
I picked out this tiny saddle for him. Mr. Newsfeed wouldn't let us have it though because he knows that in my head, when you get a tiny saddle, you NEED a tiny pony to wear it around for you. He's figured me out after all these years, much to my dismay.
