you're very hard to please


This week has been the week of simple pleasures. It started one night when I opened the kitchen cupboard to find the above. A wall of almonds and a wall of peanut butter (blech) all stacked up against each other. I think we've all finally moved away from the peanut-butter-salmonella outbreak, where an enormous number of people got sick & quite a few died (at least here in Minnesota). Yet another reason to not eat peanut butter (besides the many other reasons that existed long before the Salmonella scare).

Later, I accidentally walked into my bathroom on my way to a different room in the house (I do this often), only to find a plethora of prettily coloured hygiene products. I was just so overjoyed by the cluttered-ness of the sink, covered with pretty greens and blues and oranges and pinks. Of course, a photo was necessary.

After that, I was reading Just Jared & saw this photo of none other than Taylor Momsen. Of course, I quite like her, but it's the little dog that caught my eye. I knew that New Yorkers did odd things to stand out - but their dogs, too? Poor little thing has a green mohawk and a horrible knitted sweater.

Anyways, it finally got above 60 degrees this week (though it did drop back down below freezing to allow for some snow). It's very nice out today & I plan on going outside and drawing in a bit. First I wanted to do this, though. Here is what I wore today.

I got these Keds at a sale a couple of years ago. They were too big for me, but now are getting too small, so I plan on wearing them out this spring/summer. Otherwise I will feel guilty for wasting $6 on a nice pair of shoes. They have orange and pink flowers on them. I wore the blue acid wash jeans again. I'm starting to dislike them, because they get so stretched out within the first half an hour of wear. It drives me crazy. The two V-necks I got last year at Urban Outfitters for $10 each. Not a steal for me, but still a good deal. The pink one has a really cute illustration on it of a girl in a little blue dress, surrounded by bunnies. It seems to be inspired by Alice in Wonderland. The blue one is just striped.

So, anyways, I guess that is all for now! Spring break is only a week away and I'll fer sure be updating a ton then. And working on a giant, life size painting of Gregory Lemarchal for art class. But that is a whole 'nother story.
