Well, I'm not sure if it's in poor taste to post an outfit with the same skirt twice in a row but hey, these pictures came out really pretty! (And I didn't wear the skirt back to back but it's such a nice skirt that works so perfectly with my wardrobe that I'm sure it's going to get a lot of use this summer.)
It's been busy these past few days but a good busy. I lucked out and found a killer deal on some treated wood at a garage sale (along with some really nice tools for Ev) and we now have the wood for our deck. Woo, go garage sales! I was in a dress that day as well and the dude selling the wood got a good laugh out of me in my nice sandals and dress with a work shirt and work gloves loading wood into the truck. Yay Alaska girls? I dunno, we're a strange bunch, that's for sure.
Ev and I took a few moment to have a date night tonight which we haven't gotten to do in a long time and it was really fun and relaxing. We had dinner, ice cream at Hot Licks, went to the bookstore which is such a treat without children in tow and then saw The Great Gatsby. I've now decided that I really should only see movies of books that I hate because I end up loving the movies and not seeing movie adaptions of the books I love because I always hate the movies. (Seriously, I'm not the biggest fan of the book but the movie was actually quite nice, they kept it pretty tight with the pacing and it was crazy but had some really beautifully shot moments. One of those movies that is actually worth the $12 to see in theaters.) We saw another fabulous movie a few days ago as well, Seven Psychopaths. Dude, I think a have to add that movie to my top ten list now, it was that amazing. I don't even know how to describe it, it was so clever, funny and surprising with the story line that I really had no idea where it was going. (It's like as if Guy Richie, del Toro and Tarantino had a love child, this movie would be it. Go see it now.)
I'm going to try to get back on the pony with blogging this week and not be such a lazy bones when I get home at night. Its sad that I take the time to take pictures and then just flop on the couch and fall asleep after the kids are in bed.
Speaking of pictures, Ev took these tonight. He did quite a nice job on them, we really lucked out with some nice lighting and it's always fun to not have to worry about the camera taking a kamikaze dive off the tripod. Thumbs up darling!
