80’s Mall Madness

25 May

Ah the 80’s.  A simpler time when getting dressed meant throwing a large t-shirt over some leggings, and doing your hair meant finishing off a bottle of hair spray…. times were simpler then.  And judging by these AMAZING pictures of mall-goers in 1989, a lot more entertaining. 

Look at this hair!

Do people still get letters in high school?

So much to love here. Man tanks, quasi mullets, black sneaks…perfection.

This picture is amazing. First of all, what the heck is Tape World?  I’m guessing like Blockbuster only exclusively with VHS tapes?  Also make sure to notice the handsome devil in the background, in the tiny shorts and mustache.

Flannel and a dad in denim on denim.  Dad’s jeans are a pretty dark wash for the 80’s.  He was ahead of his time!

Birthday Doggies

15 May

Today is my birthday so I want to celebrate in the best way possible- with pictures of puppies!  

I love the month of May because summer is right around the corner.  I’m excited for pool parties-

And hanging out with my friends

Going on road trips

And exploring new places

Now I really want a puppy!  (hint hint Mr. Obbs).  What are you most looking forward to this summer?

I would love to see Nathan incorporate some chocolate chips into his designs, chocolate chip pancakes are my favorite!  

 

Cinco de Mayo & Kentucky Derby!

4 May

How often do two such spectacular events collide on the same WEEKEND day?  Not often is the answer, so huge celebrations are in order!  Instead of choosing one, why not celebrate both Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo
Kick off your Saturday with a Mexican inspired brunch.

Huevos Rancheros

Make the perfect margarita.  You can’t taste the beer but it adds a nice kick!

Snack on some darling pinata cookies

Cinco de Mayo pinata sugar cookies

 And of course, play some Mexican tunes!

 
Kentucky Derby
Pick your pony.  For the last 3 years I’ve somehow blindly picked the winner (seriously!) but of course didn’t wager anything.  This year I have a friendly bet going and will be rooting for Creative Cause.

Meet all the horses here.  Who do you like?

Make a mint julep.  Such a civilized drink.  And the mint makes it so refreshing!

And don’t forget to grab a huge Derby appropriate hat.

 
 Have a fun weekend!
