Ahh, the days are warming and the sun is beginning to shine, the fish are biting, it must be summertime!
My husband and his brother spent some time this past month, clearing out some places around the pond in the front field.  It has been decades since it has been in use, so we were excited to get down there with some lines and bait.  We drug down the flat bottom boat and wasted some time floating around. Didn't catch a thing, but I didn't mind a bit.

..what I wore..

I have said before that I really love olive green and that I don't own enough of it. So, I took an opportunity to add a bit of the lovely green shade to my clothing collective.  I found a lovely pair of skinny ankle-length cargos at JCPenney and have been wearing the heck out of them.  They are totally cute and comfortable. 
Here is a version of my favorite outfit to wear with them so far. Though most of my outfit is thrifted and the pants are I <3 Ronson. I also threw in my favorite new blush, which I won from Lucky mag and Tarte!

Alright, where is my Spring.  I had to get my wool coat out again this weekend, boo.  I suppose it could be worse though.  Last year this same weekend there was a huge amount of snow, which is extra crazy for Arkansas.  Anyway I did brave the unseasonable weather.

..rain or shine..

I love a good floral print dress for spring. And with the weather this time of year constantly changing it up on us, it is good to be creative with mixing, layering, and accessorizing.

..under my umbrella..

A couple of weekends ago we went for a drive in the country.  It was a nice day, but a bit overcast with the threat of rain, luckily I recently found this pretty new umbrella at a local surplus store. 
Now all I need is a trench coat and some galoshes and I'll be ready for some spring showers.

..you've got red on you..

I will go ahead and explain that I pretty much only ever wear red lipstick.  And, I only wear it when I have on something else that is red or at least something else really bright.  I am weird, I know, but I feel really odd if I know that my mouth is so noticable.  Besides, I am always making goofy faces.
Today, I embrace the red.  This sweater is so bright that only a large amount of silly face making will overpower it...
 BTW, this is my favorite winter hat this year.
And, yes that is a cute puppy on my sweater :)

..thou shalt not hibernate..

About a week and a half ago there was a big snow that wrapped most of the US in a blanket of snowy snowness.  So, I grabbed up my husband and my big fluffy coat, and went to explore the rescently resurfaced terrain.

Oh, and speaking of winter wonderlands, I posted about a polyvore contest that I had neglected to respond to two months ago.  I figured that they had just gone on without me, but I went ahead and replied anyway.  Apparently, they had not finished judging yet, and I won 3rd place!!!! Yay!

..olive you..

And so it is Valentine's Day.  But I have already done one of those.  Instead you get me in my favorite new(thrifted) absolutely most comfortable sweater ever! I found it in the mens section at the Goodwill.  I am a bit smitten with the olive green, which isn't news, as it has been a fave of mine for many, many years, though I sadly don't own much of it.  I even love a good dirty (olive filled) martini.  I am just an olive lover all around!
Oh, I had to show off the new addition to the family, our cute little Scion :)

..super snow..

Yay!  We had a lovely snowy day today!  I even got off work early and came home in time to do some playing in the snow.  We ended up with about 5 inches of fluffy snow at our house.  
I love having such a beautiful backdrop so when I got home I decided to play dress up, even though I wasn't going anywhere, so I could take some photos in the snow..

 I love how lots of tiny birds fluff themselves up and go play in the snow.

..V Day..

I am not big on the big commercial holiday that is approaching, rapidly.  But, I still buy into St Valentine's Day and I do love love, don't you?  And, I am still a little girl at heart, and would take flowers anytime.  I was feeling a bit  whimsical and was feeling a bit inspired by the loveliness of the traditional gift of the day, roses.  So romantic...

..wooden it be nice..

Lately I have really been digging things that a hand crafted from wood.  I am such a dork, I even like the old station wagons that have the wood panels, like....
 or better yet...
Couldn't you just see me rollin around in one of those?
Well, here are a few other translations of this current infatuation of mine that I have found on etsy.
