Dotty


I am huge polka dot fan.  Have been for a long time and as a result I have a closet full of them.  Does anyone else have something like that...a fashion fetish if you will?  I'd love to hear about them!  Well, dots happen to be one of mine (stripes being another).  Well, I thought it would be grand if these dots could all hang out together. 
They were thrilled...
My little side kick who insisted on being in the pictures.  It was hilarious, he would go and stand right in front of Brittany as she was trying to take a picture.  My poor boys have been a bit "over-documented" in their life times so I think when one of them sees a camera about the place the stop and smile.  Yes, they are well trained...most days.

The weather was so gorgeous today!  My cute Josh (the hubs) took me to buy a bike.  He has wanted our family to take bike rides together for a long time, the only problem was that I didn't have one.  I had my heart set on a pink beach cruiser with a wicker basket that I could put tulips in, because I am sure I was going to be picking tulips often when I went on bike rides, you know the wild ones, that grow on the side of the road here in Utah (okay there aren't any, but wouldn't that be great!?)...Well, the truth is that I am going to be trying to keep up with 4 boys and a fast bike ride loving husband and the guy at the bike shop let me know that on my beach cruiser I would be left in the dust, especially if I was pulling my 2 year old in the bike trailer...so I got a pink and black number that is still cute, just not beach cruiser cute.  It would look just dorky with a wicker basket on the front so that was thrown out too.  But I am still glad to get a bike!

I felt so funny trying it out in the parking lot.  The last time I rode a bike was when I was in college because I had a job and no car.  It was awesome, except for the fact that I had to wear "professional" dress at work and I lived at the top of a huge hill.  So in honor of safety I put on my bike helmet, then I tucked my cream flowy slacks into my sock so they wouldn't get all black from the chain and rode to the bottom of the hill.  At the bottom of the hill while I was waiting for the light to change so I could cross the street(with my helmet on and my pants tucked into my sock mind you), my ex-boyfriend and his new girl friend were turning left and went right past me...yep they saw me...and I wanted to sink into the sidewalk, but instead I laughed, and laughed and laughed all the way to work.  The story was classic, but I still have a slight aversion to bike helmets and cream flowy pants.  I am going to have to get over the bike helmet one though :)  And I will never tuck my flowy pants into my socks again...I promise.

So really, I am interested.  What is your fashion fetish/obsession?

  2. I tend to gravitate toward graphic t-shirts...I really, really like t-shirts. :) And I also tend to go through color-obsessions. I'll find that I have various shades of one particular color for awhile and then eventually I have too much of another favorite color...Drives me crazy. :)
