Another menswear (or rather boyswear) inspired post, or what I refer to as "everyday Maria!" I own several pieces of clothing from Brooks Brothers' boys department. When I was working in finance a few years ago, I loved to shop in the boys section at BB for lots of items like shirts, sweaters and jackets. I used to confound the sales staff. ;)

We took these photos on Saturday at sunset, which was lucky considering that it down poured all day yesterday. We randomly found this boardwalk, which is hidden off a main road and is really quite beautiful. While Cole was coming back from exploring the rest of the boardwalk, I sneakily snapped a candid shot!

How was everyone's weekend?

Well, I didn't go to my reunion. When it came down to it, I just really didn't feel like going. Instead, Cole and I had a lovely bonfire where we roasted hot dogs and drank beer. It was quite fun.

While there is no denying that Gaspard is gorgeous, what I really love is his amazing laid back French style. There is something wonderful about the way he wears a classic white shirt.

And yes, before Robert was cast, I so wanted Gaspard to play Edward. But that was three years ago and I think Robert is perfect.

P.S. I'm still catching up on all your blog posts. I guess the holiday craziness is already upon us!

And the Beat Goes On: Kate Bush

Like a lot of music from the early 80's, whenever I hear this song by Kate Bush, I immediately think of my mom! Also, how much do I want Kate's hair and makeup!

Placebo also did a great cover of the song:


My apologies for the lack of comments and replies, this week has been crazy, but I'm spending today catching up!

XOXO

Whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving or not, I'm sure we all have something that we can be thankful for!

Here's my list:
  • My and my loved ones good health
  • Being married to my best friend
  • My crazy dogs
  • Moving back to my home state and being closer to family
  • All the wonderful friends I've made through blogging
XOXO

A Wrinkle in Time (aka My High School Reunion)

Well our ten year high school reunions are this weekend. I'm pretty sure I'm going to mine, but Cole is going to skip his. So in honor of the this strange occasion, I thought I'd share some photos from our senior years.

Senior portraits:

Well, there you have it- the weirdness that is graduating in 1999!!

Feeling a bit old right now.
