i got dragged out to do a little shopping... i didn't need to buy anything but of course i made an impulse purchase in each of the three shops i visited. i'm so predictable. first off was a magazine at jo-ann fabrics (50% off!) and a bottle of blood orange micro-distilled vodka at the liquor store... who could say no to blood orange vodka? especially when the packaging was so purty. i stuck it in the freezer and had a bit of it chilled last night... slightly sweeter than i expected but rather complex and lovely.
then i went to pier 1 and found these fabulous, huge and gaudy adjustable rings by the register. they seem to be mother of pearl with a domed seal of resin over the top. i generally don't wear rings much but at 4 bucks each who could say no to this little bit of fabulousness. i picked up a couple of extras for friends too.
it's looking like another gorgeous day here in boulder... and this afternoon we are off to visit a gem and jewelry show in denver so i can feed my bead addiction.
i took this picture of will yesterday as i was leaving on vacation. he wanted a nice shot with all his facial hair before he shaves it all off. aw, goodbye lumberjack.
notice all the snow in madison... it has been a crazy winter for sure. lots and lots of snow interrupted with short bouts of thawing and rain have ruined the roads (seriously, worst pot holes EVER!) and made us seriously tired of shoveling. well, will is tired of shoveling... i'm just plain tired of it.
and now, i'm in sunny boulder, colorado where the sunny is shining, it's in the 50's and there is barely a trace of snow to be found... apparently the powers that be are on my side.
for all of you back home... yeah, i'm rubbing it in.
