fresh flowers and new shoes, oh my!

Aside from the annoying pollen, my favorite thing about spring is the flowers! I adore all the beautiful blooms, and I really, REALLY love it when a bush is so full of flowers it becomes weighted, just begging me to pick some of its beautiful gifts! In addition to irises (which were laying on the ground there were so many blooms), I picked these pretty peonies, so I'm sure you can imagine how sweet my house smells right now!

Now to the most exciting bit... Micaela found this uber cute pair of moccasin boots, and I knew I need them; like couldn't function or breathe without them kind of need. So, she got this pair and we worked out a bit if a trade, but I think it's fair to say Micaela got jipped! We met up on Sunday to exchange goods, and it wasn't until the cute blonde girl at the video store commented on their awesomeness that Chris decided they were kind of cute ;)

Yes, my legs really are that white. It's not a camera trick. I thought I'd jump on the trampoline in my bathing suit to try and get a little color today, but it ended up being so hot, and "Aunt Flow" was kind enough to gift me with one heck of a headache, so I decided a short walk outside was enough; any attempts at a tan will have to wait until another day.

If you haven't entered the GIVEAWAY yet, please do! The winner will be announced tomorrow evening, so be sure you don't miss out!

    j'adore your nail polish color and flowers! me and max got in a brief misunderstanding (boys!) yesterday and he gave me orchids- they are the prettiest flowers! no ones ever given them to me before so he was forgiven ;) seeing as i don't have a green thumb, did you know for orchids you just give them 3 ice cubs a week to water them? maybe i'm weird and am the only one that finds that interesting! lol
