my week in objects (mostly).

July 27, 2012

1. these bloomers.bloomies {given with love by a dear friend who happens to read a few make-believe tea leaves}.

2. this glass bottle.
bottle2 {because drinking from a pretty glass bottle increases my water intake by about four times. this one originally housed fancy sparkles}.

3. this mint.
mint {and the oregano and the tarragon. but mostly the mint because it perked right up}.

4. these ‘socks.’
socks {because i’ve been using them to help break in my wedding shoes all week, despite the fact that the french tourist standing next to me during my purchase described them as a bit mémère. harumph}.

5. this white pen.
pen {because it helped me write about a million place cards}.

other things:
summer comfort food.
wedding lips. headed here, here, and here to investigate.
this story.
these kind words about our tiny apartment.
i’m desperate for a bathing suit.

    I love Fresh's colored lip balms! I have the Passion, and this coral must be a new color! I must investigate and may purchase for an upcoming road trip 🙂

    My mint plant just died. Not sure what I did wrong…. The story about the french tourist is quite funny 🙂 Smart way to break in wedding shoes though!

    Those are kind words indeed and you are very much deserving.
    I thought I'd mention that I attempted to go and buy the same retro fan you have but a mute lady stopped me from buying it at checkout. In sign language she told me it was not powerful enough and that it is noisy. I felt bad to not listen to her advice so i put it back on the shelf. I still want it though regardless of what she said 🙂

    Do you drink Font D'Or water??? That's water from Spain !
    Last days I've been very busy looking for a bath suit. Don't you feel stressed when you can't find the one you want? I also was looking for a bloomers like those you have….they look really confortable.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    I get married this weekend and found my wedding lip color at Bobbi! Sand washed pink with lilac sugar gloss over top!
