The French Quarter

So on my final day in New Orleans, I got to do typical tourist stuff: go eat beignets at Cafe du Monde, explore artwork on the sidewalks, and peak into the mardi gras stores that line the streets of the French Quarter. I loved my short little vacation there and I definitely hope that one day I can go back. In this outfit, I tried to channel my inner French girl, which definitely meant that I needed a striped sweater and a red silk scarf.

P.S. Sorry for the crazy hair and face- it was a very, very late night at the game.

Back In Town

I’m home! My first day home was the perfect balance of relaxing and busy. I woke up at the crack of 10 and saw my best friend before she left on vacation, went with my mother to get her hair done, and then did some grocery shopping. And, I am completely ignoring the fact that school starts in a few weeks. It’s still summer, and tax free weekend hasn’t happened yet. So I am still on vacation. There.

Sounds Like a Challenge

Some days are just a little slower than others. Yesterday, I tumbled out of bed and wandered around the house all morning until I realized that it was noon an we hadn’t done anything nor made plans to do anything. Then, I remembered that my mom and I had thought about seeingĀ Snow White and the Huntsman. The only problem was that it is not playing in Modesto anymore and the closest place it is playing in Turlock (the next town over, about 30 minutes away). And, there was a show at 12:30. My mom and I were thinking about going to either that show, or the one at 3:30 when my grandma said, “Oh you can’t go to the 12:30 one, you’ll never make it”. Well, that made up our minds and we decided to go for the 12:30. And we made it with 5 minutes to spare!

P. S. Chris Hemsworth is lookin’ mighty fine that the movie.

Little Sailor Girl

Happy 4th of July! I am back in Modesto, but I get to go back to the beach next week. A lot of my family is coming to my grandparents house today and we wanted to be around for the festivities. Here are some photos of what I wore over the past two days. I actually made my dad stop the car when we drove by the little meadow on our way home.
