I really, really, REALLY suck at that "Slug Bug" game.  You know, the one where if you spot a Volkswagon Bug first, you slug the person next to you and yell "Slug bug, no slug bug back, blahblahblah."  That game.  I am awful.  In the past ten years I have won that game exactly once in a town that is packed with Bugs.   Bugs, they're the ultimate in urban camo for sneaking up on Katie...

In other news, I shrunk this dress.  I tried to iron it a while back, ending up smearing blue crayon all over it(looks like someone was melting crayons with the iron, hmmm....) and threw it in the wash to clean it.  Well, I neglected to read the care instructions, turn the wash onto warm and when the dress came out dramatically smaller, I realized I'd stuck a dry clean only dress into the hot water.  Opps.  It's a good thing I'm short of this could have been much worse. 


  1. i want your scarf and your bag..

  2. Haha, definitely a good thing you're short! I love this dress and your layers with it. That plaid scarf is just perfect. That last shot is my favorite!
    Oh and the Slug Bug game? Man, I suck at it too. Thankfully there aren't that many in my area. It's mostly trucks, trucks, and more trucks ;P

  3. I feel your pain! I accidentally shrunk a pair of wool pants once. =X The dress still looks great, so it's more like an evolution of sorts. :)

  4. oh no, poor dress~!! but actually it still looks really cute. I'm TERRIBLE at the slug bug game as well! over the knee socks forever, btw


Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I always like hearing feeback! (It really makes my day!)
