beside myself

























look how mavericky i am now! i asked matt to take pictures of me in the street beside our house. ok, in all honesty, i wanted to take them on the sidewalk and he suggested we do them in the middle of the street. yes, it was all his idea. and yes, people looked, and i did feel a bit strange, but i did it anyway and it was fun!
today, we set out to do a little thrifting and running errands and such. hopefully, i'll be updating the store tomorrow if i get all my stuff done by then. i got a few super cool things.
and did you guys see the front page of chictopia?!?!?!?!? well, if not, i took a snap shot of it for you. this morning, i got up and checked my email on my phone like i always do while waiting for the coffee to brew. i had a lot of emails. so after i ate breakfast i looked at the computer and i was all confused. like, did it just send me straight to my blog? what's going on? and then my sleepy head figured it out!!! i thought the front page was only for super cool awesome people. i don't know what they were thinking putting a silly girl like me on there. i totally don't deserve it but i am beside myself with giddiness. thanks so much to all of you who listen to me, vote for me, comment on me, follow me, and generally like me. i am blessed. for so many reasons, but this is one really neat reason.
