in life there are moments that you will relive over & over again because they are little or big gifts from God. the moment RL asked me to marry him, will be one of them: i said yes.

first off, i am faboosh, whether the camera tells me that or not. (a little confidence can, if you will). 🙂
um…how do fashion bloggers do it? there is a super popular series, well, i’m sure that there are many, many series devoted to this, but i know of what i wore wednesday, by the pleated poppy.
okay. i am not a fashion blogger. in fact, i am not what anyone may call fashionable (at least to the point that someone would ever wear what i wear together, as i wear it). but, instead of cleaning the fridge, grocery shopping, and cleaning my car, i thought i might try something different on this little space. for laughs, if you will.
now, in order to get a good look at what a fashion post is supposed to look like, i suggest my favorites here:
okay, so do you see a pattern? they all look faboosh, they all have the “i’m cool, without trying to look cool” looks down, they inspire you to dress a little more put together.
here are my takes:
(also, let it be known that i actually attempted to take some with my digital camera, and a leftover tripod from one of ar’s old christmas gifts a few years back, and then the camera died. and i have NO idea where the cables are to recharge it – this is already turning out great for a fashion shoot).
and next up, we have the accessories “close up” shot, that so many before me have perfected:
and next up, we have the “look at my pedicure/manicure that is so cute!” shot that i failed on epic proportions at:
and then, both feet:
and then, you will not even know how to contain your jealousy at the next shot…
wait for it…
there were a few that i liked, but, alas, i am not a fashion blogger, unless wrists are what you are after:
so all in all, i think i will leave it to the pros, and just keep using pictures of other people, and nature. and gus the guinea pig. because i am not afraid to say i am bad at something.
fashion blogging is something i am bad at. also, please don’t take this as me making fun of people that can do these. i am jealous, and also want folks out there to know that the ones that look awesome, who have rad edited photos, and can look cute while doing it all? kudos to you, and this stuff is hard, and takes so much time!!! my headband is off to you.
have a lovely day my friends, and i hope this post at least made you laugh. ps. my watch is from tarjay. it is this one.

ranunculus. is the plural ranunculaii?? i am obsessed & want to grow some this year. i keep seeing people post pictures of their gorgeous blue mason jars full of a bouquet of them.
where do you buy them in bouquets? trader joes? farmer’s markets? where??? (i am desperately seeking ranunculussssessssss.)
i am obsessed, & also an awful guinea pig parent to gus D. guinea pig. (although if you ask a.r., she is the mom, and i’m the grandma). i can’t be a grandma yet.
i believe i am over zig zags in the form of chevron. it gives me a headache. (i won’t share a picture, i don’t want to give you a headache).
planning a yard, garden and/or outdoor space is SO fun. paying for one is not.
coral curtains are fun.
owls are overdone. let’s give the groundhogs a chance people. or? hedgehogs. think about all the cuteness with the spikes.
i love the color green, and the best version of green? spring. Hallelujah.
i got to go to the detroit tigers game and meet up with some cousins, aunts and uncles, and sisbomb #2. it confirmed the idea that my extended family on both sides is WAY better than yours. sorry folks, just the facts.
this post is brought to you by natural vitamin d. it helps regulate the crazy from eight months of sheer below 40 degree madness.
confused guinea caretaker – OUT.
