that's probably not gonna change

From as long as I can remember,
I've always been one of those girly girls.
 The kind who likes pink, lace, and flowered things.

"Adalae, your every moment is a masterpiece 
Ralph Lauren RTW Spring 2012

Adalae, your're only precious 'til you meet your needs

Ralph Lauren RTW Spring 2012

Adalae, you say we'll see you on the silver screen

Ralph Lauren RTW Spring 2012

But when you're down

You know this town's just not for you

Ralph Lauren RTW Spring 2012

Adalae, everybody knows you're working hard
Adalae, you see the sunset on the boulevard
Adalae, your only enemy's the calendar
My guy and I saw some art 
by Texas artist 
Michele Mayfield
She has religious themes and elements in her art.

This is one picture, as a whole.

 I took photos of sections,
 so details can be seen better.

Oh Adalae, I think you're losing your head

Let's take these rumors and put them to bed

With these complaints for dedications tried and true

And since you always get your way, this one's for you

by Texas artist Michele Mayfield

Can't help but think it was something I said

Cursing at the stars above

by Texas artist Michele Mayfield

Adalae, maybe you'll never get a second chance
Adalae, you're only social on the stimulants

It's ok cause everybody knows your circumstance
SO arch your back girl cause you're always on display
And you know you're only worth what you get paid

My art journal pages
On the right it says: 
Because it's deep inside yourself

It says: At heart I'm a writer. Even if I just jot down my own observations. Notes to self. My favorite art supplies are pens. Books full of words recorded on and off since 7th grade. Stationary I've still saved, from letters I used to write, all the time, through the mail. Other people's stories, as told through my perceptions.

I'm wearing my favorite dress,
 when I was in kindergarten.
It's a dress my mom sewed,
 when I was a flower girl,
 in someone's wedding.

Oh Adalae, I think you're losing your head
Let's take these rumors and put them to bed
Can't help but think it was something I said
Cursing at the stars above

Oh Adalae i know the sun's in your eyes
You've got it all but still you wear a disguise

Whatever you do, don't apologize

Nobody can buy your love"

all about shoes

The following words are NOT my story.
Office Wild West Floral

Woke up cold one Tuesday,
I'm looking tired and feeling quite sick,

Enigma Floral Oxford Bootie

I felt like there was something missing
 in my day to day life,

Floral Platform Slingbacks

So I quickly opened the wardrobe,
Pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean,

Leopard Print Platform Sandals

Topped it off with a pair of old shoes, 

YSL Clara Cut-Out Booties

That were ripped around the seams,

And I thought these shoes just don't suit me.

LC Lauren Conrad Platform Dress Sandals

Hey, I put some new shoes on,

And suddenly everything is right,

SO Platform Wedge Sandals

I said, hey, I put some new shoes on
 and everybody's smiling,

It's so inviting,

My nephew wearing his daddy's shoes.

Oh, short on money,
But long on time,

My niece wearing her daddy's boots .

Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
And I'm running late,
And I don't need an excuse,
 'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes.

My nephew, Speed Racer
trying to put on his Aunt Teddi's shoes
Speed Racer's actual shoes

Woke up late one Thursday,
And I'm seeing stars as I'm rubbing my eyes,
And I felt like there were two days missing,
As I focused on the time,
And I made my way to the kitchen,

 by local Texas artist Nancy Standlee

  But I had to stop from the shock of what I found,
A room full of all off my friends dancing round and round,

My art journal pagecreated with pens. 
It says: To find a dance partner
who can make you laugh,
share your secrets with,
and be a true friend is a treasure.

My art journal page
background is acrylic paint
on an old phone book yellow page.

The drawings were done with pens
It says: Bracelets I wore on Friday.
The shoes I wore, on May 26. 

And I thought hello new shoes,

Bye bye them blues. 

Take me wandering through these streets,
Where bright lights and angels meet,
Stone to stone they take me on,
I'm walking to the break of dawn.  
Take me wandering through these streets by Paolo Nutini

in the parking lot

I know it's not exactly the best place to take photos, but we were on our way to see live music.

My tie dyed skirt is thrifted.

Today is still Monday for 12 more minutes.
Therefore, I'm linking up to Two Birds Boutique.

This is the inspiration outfit they chose.
It's actress Michelle Tractenberg.
I've mentioned I like her character Georgina from  the TV show Gossip Girl before, in this old post.

To see how others were inspired by this outfit,
 look at 
Inspiration Monday.

My blouse is thrifted.

I won this shoe from  LuLu's
 in this giveawayat Maria's blog
Little Tree Vintage.

My guy's shadow in this photo,
 is my favorite.

I won this necklace from  Vivi Dot   
 in this giveaway at Melissa's blog
Bubby and Bean.

My mom made the wood bracelet,
and the purple bracelet.

This local band Luke Wade and No Civilians
is who we saw last night.

art journal pages

I drew and painted this
 from one girl image,
 that I saw on a book cover.

It says: Interesting how the same image can change in how you see it it, interpret it, express all the feelings, colors, all on the same day. It's almost like she's aging right in front of us.

It says: I should be making a difference.
That's what my 9th grade self wanted.
It's what my college self intended.
It's still something to strive for.

It says: In May, on the couch, I sketched  my nephew JJ, while he slept.
I sketched his twin sister,
while she sat on the floor playing.
She and her sister move around often
It's difficult to catch them being still.

3 parts green 1 part blue

It brings to my mind mermaids and the sea.
For I actually sport this color combination quite frequently.

I dream of these 3 things:
Peter Pilotto Satin and Leather Sandals

Roberto Cavalli Printed Caftan
Dolce & Gabbana Print Pants

My real life things:

Mom made the 2 green earrings.
My friend made the peace earrings.
The antique looking pair belonged to my grandma.

My cousin made the butterfly bracelet.
My mom made the bracelets on the right.
My friend made the green and black bracelet.

Mom made the heart necklace.
My cousin made the green
 and the blue butterfly necklaces. 

Some people I love:

My niece Lil Bug.
My nephew JJ, being held by his mom.
My husband took this photo.
I can't tell which twin niece this is.
I wasn't there, when my guy took this photo.
My nephew, Speed Racer
playing catch with his Dad.
My husband took this photo as well.
He's running in his backyard.
I'm not sure if I took this or my guy did.
 On my birthday in 2006
I think we used a tripod on this day.

In May I saw this. No it isn't in Texas.
We don't have mountains where I live.

In my art/music room,
3 green ribbons and 1 blue ribbon.

My art journal page

where I answered the question

If you could scream something

 at the top of your lungs right now
what would it be?

This was on June 10

Another art journal page:

The quote says: "Once you can accept that the universe as being something expanding into an infinite nothing which is something,
 wearing stripes with plaid is easy."
-Albert Einstein
