last week, matt and his dad traveled to bolivia, south america. matt and his family lived in santa cruz for about 8 years as missionaries in santa cruz. they went down to shoot videos for the mission and to send out to supporters. this is just a wee go-pro vid from a day of driving around.

i love turtlenecks. i'm just like my mother and when the temperatures drop, my neck goes into hibernation. there's nothing worse than a cold breeze infiltrating my outer garments to freeze out my sensitive warm parts. and the great thing about this particular turtleneck sweater is that it's not so tight that it clings to me like a long lost relative. no strangling, no foul. i think i've worn it about 5 times in the last few weeks. so rest assured, you'll see this again. i may need to locate another trusted turtleneck and more hoodies. the comfort of my neck depends on it.

plaid, toggle coat, and leopard print: such a preppy look for me, no? i wore this to have dinner with friends. the mercury plummeted over the weekend and i was kinda excited to pull out this cozy wool coat that i bought last spring. a local consignment store was having a 75% off sale and i spied this guy over in the kid section. turns out it fit and i love the cropped sleeves oh so very much. and at a cool $5 it would have been just maniacal to pass up. so in an effort to not be crazy, i snagged the little navy toggle coat from the boys section and laughed all the way to the register.

over the weekend, matt went to a flaming lips concert with some dudes. apparently, it was a pretty rad time complete with balloons and confetti. i saw the pics. but he came home and said 'i got the best shirt at the concert. you need to do a post about it.' so this is the shirt. softest tee on the planet and i was told that the band members themselves screen printed the graphic. and who doesn't love peace and punk rock?
now, GO VOTE.
