I was inspired by Banana Republic to pair my seersucker blazer with colored capris. Then, I went a little over the top and put a bright pink sweater under it and to carry the summer theme, I wore my J Crew short sleeve chambray shirt under the sweater. While I like the color combination, I was honestly uncomfortable all day and the shirt under the sweater puckered making it look like I have a bunch of fat rolls. While I have fat rolls, they aren't quite as pronounced as the pictures make it seem. Looking at the pictures tonight, I also don't like the cut of the capris. I think they make me look hippy. I have trouble with pants because I have a curvy shape and I think I look bottom heavy in most pants I wear. Maybe I'm just having a down day because overall, I'm not satisfied with today's look. Like I always tell Kira, if you have a bad day today, it doesn't mean tomorrow will be a bad day, so I'll adopt my own advice for once!

While practicing Kira's spelling words tonight, Kira informs me that she and Dave were practicing how to spell monkey butt last night. There is a dance associated with this as well. Yes, a dance. They told me I would never understand. I fear they are probably correct.
I stole my outfit idea from J Crew today. My bracelet is also from J Crew and I discovered after it arrived that the j ring wasn't wide enough to fit around the clasp. So, instead of sending it back and paying the shipping, I bolt cut off the j ring, and put a lobster claw clasp on it with a jump ring. Problem solved. I am annoyed that I had to do that, but since it's fixed, I guess I'll let it go.

Today, I had a guest photographer taking my photos. In the middle of the "shoot", Kira looks at me and says, "You look like a unicorn." Huh? So I asked for clarification and she said my hair was sticking straight up. She stopped taking photos, had me bend down and then fixed my hair. Looking at the earlier pictures, she was right. She also took a picture of Dave after he went on a six mile run this morning. It's intermittently raining here today and he got soaked. That'll teach him to not tell me his route today because I would have went and picked him up. Kira wanted me to show you the picture she took, so I included it here much to Dave's dismay. Ha ha!

3:30 a.m. is the time the dog decided to get stuck in the corner this morning. First, she clacked her little toes all over the bathroom tile, "click, click, click", then, she moseyed back into the bedroom and walked to the corner where I keep some wrapping paper materials. Next, I hear her shuffling through tissue paper. At this point, I am up and pretty ticked. I grabbed my book light and walked over to see what the issue was and she was stuck. Not hurt stuck, just stuck stuck, like can't figure out that all she had to do was back up kind of stuck. Dave had the carpet cleaner in our bedroom in my wrapping corner and the dog couldn't figure out that all she had to do was BACK UP. After getting her situated, I was up up up up. I was ok until late this afternoon and then I hit a wall. I'm kind of pooped right now. I am also kind of mad at the dog.

Sitting on the couch tonight, I saw something drop from the ceiling out of the corner of my eye. I knew it was some form of bug and I didn't think much about it until I looked at what it was and saw that it was a hornet. Now it had to be dealt with. I told Kira to back up, ran and got a bowl and stuck it on top of it. Then I went and got something heavy and stuck it on top of the bowl. I now have a hornet stuck in a bowl and I'm betting it's pretty ticked. When Dave got home, I told him about the situation and he winced and said, "We better have Orkin spray the inside of the house." I don't think he's dealing with the bug. I'm ok with waiting this out because I am certainly not dealing with the situation. I captured it and my work is done here.
Anyway, I just bought this jacket at Banana Republic and I looooovvvve it. I'm also still in my matching phase, so you'll noticed that the green in the jacket matches the necklace and matches my pants. Ta da!

Kira started taking vitamins again because she doesn't drink milk and her orange juice probably isn't cutting it for her daily dose of calcium. She started taking Flintstone's vitamins and she's fascinated with the characters. I tend to forget that she's only maybe seen the Flintstones once in her life because that was my favorite cartoon as a kid. Who are we kidding, I'd schedule my college classes around the show. I'd lose about an hour a day getting sucked into the silly world of Bedrock. Tonight, we had to explain that the boy vitamin was Bam Bam and he got his name because of how he slammed his club. I even demonstrated. Now Kira thinks I'm nuts. It was time she learned that!

Even though I spend my days being a bean counter, in my spare time, I play the flute and have played since I was nine. Last Saturday, when I was at Kira's guitar lesson, I went downstairs to the music store to evaluate purchasing a new flute. When I was testing out the flutes, the saleslady asked me if I was interested in joining a flute choir. I thought about it for a little bit and thought, "Why not?" So tonight was the first practice. I was really nervous because I can be a little shy in new situations, but I had a blast! It's so much fun playing good music with people who can play and have a passion for the same thing you do!
