RED- The color of Browne bear's truck.
Like a robin redbreast or a cardinal bird.
Kimmie bear's favorite color.
Strawberries are my guy's favorite fruit.
I don't like red jell-o.
I don't like 
jell-o at all.

Rockin' Robin by Old Rips

..."He rocks in the tree top all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singing his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

Rockin' robin, (tweet, tweet, tweet)
Rockin' robin' (tweet, tweedle-lee-dee)
Go rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight
(Tweet, tweedle-lee-dee)"...Rockin' Robin by Bobby Day

tie dye

It's my favorite pattern.
I recently counted 11 things with tie dyed patterns in my closet: jeans, a dress, a skirt, t-shirts, blouses, and tanks.

My tie dye top was thrifted.
My Guess? pants were thrifted.
My black boots were thrifted.

 I first bleached a pair of jeans in 9th grade.
I wore a tie dye t-shirt in my 10th grade school photo.

My mom gave me my necklace.
My mom made my turquoise bracelet,
and my wooden bracelet.

I remember my friend and I, tie dying our t-shirts,
 and staining her driveway, when were 16.
I was in 11th  grade.

My husband was wearing a tie dye t-shirt,
 when I met him. He still has it, and wears it.
Each time, I tease and remind him.

Back in the college, he wore a different tie dye shirt,
  for his driver's license photo.

Born to Run is my brother's and my,
favorite song by 
Bruce Springsteen.
I've been playing it on my guitar for weeks.

"...we can live with the sadness 
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul
Someday girl I don't know when 
we're gonna get to that place 
Where we really wanna go 
and we'll walk in the sun 
But till then tramps like us 
baby we were born to run"...
Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen

back in march

I wore my Jimi Hendrix shirt, my sister n-law's old vest,
and the purse my friend gave me for Christmas.

I wore these old boots from Payless Shoes.

My nephew Speed Racer smiled at the camera,
 chose some books, and picked his nose.

My twin nieces hunted for Easter eggs.

My nephew Baby JJ ate some cheese.

My guy and I ate strawberries with Nutella.

My guy took photos of turtles.

I read and loved the book 
...Although I was an accident,
 it worked out for me...

...I want to thank all of them and everyone else that made me laugh. There are dead people I still like,
and I want to thank them too..
from My Mother Was Nuts by Penny Marshall.

I created this art journal page on March 7, 2013
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
I wore purple pants and boots.
Two weeks ago, it was beanie hats.

I played Soldiers of Misfortune  by Filter on my guitar.

..."I'd like to wake up from this dream

Can't we learn from history?

Why's it such a mystery?"...

snippets of life

Today's inspiration monday!

That's when the ladies Megan and Nora of Two Birds Boutique
choose an outfit to inspire a look.

Here's my version of the look.
To see how others styled it go to:
inspiration monday: backstage demands.

Today's inspiration is:
Jennifer Lawrence

My friend gave me the pink dragonfly necklace.
It was designed by the person who did her tattoo.
The blue and fish bird longer necklace came from Target.
My bracelets are made by my mom, and another friend's mom,
 and other various stores.

My skirt and shoes were thrifted.

My nephew Baby JJ turned 1.
They had to give him a bath after he ate his cake.

My twin nieces liked JJ's cake too.
As you can see it's all over their faces.

My nephew Speed Racer likes french fries and diet coke.

My mom made me a small quilt of my childhood photos for Christmas in 2012.
She made a quilt we sometimes have on our bed.
My childhood bedspread she made was quilted.

My friend made my teddy bear quilt.
One day when my husband made the bed,
I asked him what the bears were doing.
He said, eskimo kissing.
