We went to visit the grandparents in Roanoke a couple weeks ago. It was so pretty there. We hiked, had wonderful homemade dinners and lunch over looking the mountains. We relaxed and watched a movie by the fireplace, went to a wine tasting in an orchard, and to a beautiful Roman Catholic mass and Sunday brunch. We also visited Tall Man’s Aunt and Uncle who have chickens! Polly is the brown one. Over-all it was a perfect fall weekend. I don’t think it gets much better than that.
How long has Polyvore been around? I’m new to this world of blogging about pretty things. Through some of the other fab women on this blogging “network” or whatever you want to call it (network sounds so formal) I came across “Your girl next door.” Her Polyvore page is GORGEOUS. So, I thought I would give it a try. Guess what, it’s not as easy as it looks. So I am starting out with a simple collage of things that are so Michelle right now.
It’s a good start. I’ll work on it.
P.S. I know I sound greedy and un-Christmas giving like but … I’d like all of these things please. Thanks fairy blogmother.
P.P.S. I just found an interesting article on Polyvore in the NewYorker. I am over a year late to the party apparently.

Put aside your political leanings and learn about the life of a service member. When you’re about three minutes in… get out the tissues and prepare to be proud of your country.
Later in the day a friend text messaged me an image from Express so that I could prove to him it was in style. We all had fun with it … and now my man (who I am still not sure if he likes the look as much as I do ) knows better 🙂

P.P.S. This may have been up and coming last fall or winter too… I’m late to the sock party.
