College Days

I visited my old college campus recently and had a good time walking around and reminiscing.  Here is some of the campus beauty.

This travel post outside the art department reminded me of Jess because she loves to travel to different places.

The Canadian geese on the roofs of the buildings looked as though they were watching over the campus.

This is the building where I took my stenography classes.  Do you remember shorthand?  My first job after college was a stenographer.

This is a piece of artwork I liked that one of the students created.

The campus bell my husband used to ring when he was 10 years old.

This S building reminded me of Sheri.

Nel would appreciate this, as she loves books.

More art pieces.

My old campus is very nice, and it was good to visit again.

All you students....
study hard
keep learning
I admire your dedication.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I love to go shopping, and when I find that perfect piece of clothing, accessory, or item for the home it makes it all the more fun.  My husband doesn't care for shopping much, so when my girls are around, I have the best time spending a carefree day with them.  This weekend, Jess and I hit all the shops, and I even bought her a few goodies to take home.  The sites around the stores also add charm in a day of shopping.

Jess found a purse in this pretty shop that can be worn with many different outfits.


I found a pair of white shoes that I liked too.

These cups at Anthropologie reminded me of red rose alley.

Then, we headed over to Pier 1 Imports and browsed through their Easter d├ęcor.

I hope to have another shopping day in a couple of weeks, with Nel included.  Shopping is a way to clear the head and let everything go, and at the same time spend the day with our favorite people.

An Unexpected Guest

I have a pleasant surprise this weekend...

Surprise Mom and Dad! I've come to visit you. 

I live a few hours away from my parents, and it's been too long since I have been able to come visit. 

How I've missed them!

I'm looking forward to a weekend full of hugs, laughs, and sweet conversation.

just because.

A Girl And Her Barbie

When I was a young girl, I used to play Barbies all the time with a neighbor friend of mine.   We had a fun time dressing our dolls up with different clothes and accessories and imagining.  My friend had many more clothes for her doll than I did, but the ones I had I loved because they were made by my mom.  This was my favorite, a light blue satin ball gown.

This was a fun summer outfit that actually came with her.  Now, I'm just wondering....did I cut her bangs, thinking that they would grow back haha?  Oh, the imagination of a child.

I sewed a few outfits myself, which probably made my mom laugh.

My mom even made her fish net stockings.

"Our imaginations are strong as children.  Sometimes they get shoved aside, these imaginations.  They get dusty and mildewed with age.  The imagination is a muscle that has to be put to use or it shrivels."

~Julianna Baggott

This doll is one of the few things I have from my childhood and I'll keep it forever, along with her clothes that my mom patiently sewed for me.  Is there something in your childhood that means a lot to you and still have?
