Day 313: Supper with Family

image

Drove up to visit my brother in Illinois. There is always a good feed put on by my sister in law (SiL).

She made broiled Italian breaded chicken, corn, broccoli and cheese casserole, and portabella mushrooms baked with olive oil, herbs and balsamic vinegar.

It was a good feed.
After we ate, we went to visit the SiL’s neices. They were lumpy and cute. I would post pictures but they aren’t mine.

I kept one of the twin girls entertained by making faces, jigging her on my knee and licking her cheek.
Okay…So I only licked her cheek once. Promise
Katryn (baby) had that creepy deep stare that babies develop as they grow. She freaked me out with her stare but no one else thought my memories were being stolen by the miniature human.
Haha, babies are so weird.

Day 294: Rolling

Late post:

I visited my sister, brother and his wife yesterday. We got a tour of the shipping and receiving buildings where my brother works.

They have to wrap the items with bubble wrap, but they don’t buy small packages of bubble wrap. They buy and hang huge rolls of bubble wrap. I assume they pull and tear off the length needed and then wrap it on the large work table beneath. I was SO tempted to unroll the whole lot of it and log roll on the floor to pop it.

I held back…..

Day Sixty-Five: Summer Dress

can't wait for warm weather

This is the floor length summer dress that I got from the Indian/Hippie inspired store in the mall. The mall where my brother and sister lives definitely trumps the boring mainstreamed mall that I have near me.

In addition to the pretty (and horribly expensive) store that I got my dress in, there was another hippie store just a few shops down from that one. It was kind of a curiosity, headshop, knick-knack store. I’m not quite sure how to explain it, but most mall stores I go to don’t have an entire rack of incense and holders.

The most fascinating part about the second store was their entire wall of mardi-gras-esque masks. We whimsically pulled almost every single one off the hooks and tried them on. My sister and I decided we need to have a masquerade of some sort. My fiance vetoed the masquerade wedding (darn!), but I think it would be fun to do something like that as a party without having to go to Louisiana mid-semester.

The light is a little funny in this picture. So I took a detailed one so you could see just how pretty the colors are.

purples, blues and sparklies, oh my!

I cannot wait to wear this once the weather gets warm! I’m so excited!!
I believe I have decided which internship I will take. You better believe I will be packing this dress and bringing it with me to wear on my days off. This is a perfect downtown festival wandering around dress!
