Lost in Drawers Vintage will have our first booth at the Craft Fair in Sundance Square! We are beyond excited, we are getting things ready and tagging everything in sight! We want to see you all! YES you!
We are back home from being with my family for Memorial Day weekend. And though we will be seeing them again in 3 days time for my youngest baby brothers high school graduation, I have to say that I love going home. I love that my family lives in a small town, I love that it rains so much there that they get way more toadstools than we ever see in our neck of the woods. And I especially enjoy that there are never next door neighbors around, so that I can go stand in front of their fence anytime for a “outfit shot.” God Bless America.
But you know what I really love right now? While we were at my parents, we got a email expressing interest in Lost in Drawers Vintage being in a local craft/vintage show downtown in Sundance Square. Pretty pumped! More info coming very very soon!
This was our first time going to the 23rd Annual Asian Festival in Dallas, and let me tell you, it was more than worth the free admission and $5 parking! No, but really, it was a lot of fun. Pork on a stick, the adorable kid dancers, perfectly refreshing boba/bubble tea from Delish Bubble Tea in McKinney, finding the perfect Totoro to take home, posing with said Totoro everywhere and generally having a great time on the first truly warm day of the year.
We even continued our current Pinkberry obsession as we searched the Dallas area for all things Studio Ghibli. We finally made it by Anime Pop which is a wonderful stop for all things anime. A very hot, yet fun, but still quite dorky way to start up the summer!
Oh, hello there “summer”. Summer for Texas that is, because spring is a very brief season in our fair state. It’s entirely unpredictable, as a couple of hours later it decided to storm and launch tornadoes and sling hail on all of us. But for the first part of the day, it was summery, full of sunshine and clear skies all around. Such weather is when a crop top needed to be worn, I think. Of course, with a denim jacket thrown over. Two outfit post in a row!
And of course we are praying for the people affected by the storms, while we were pretty safe. Also, while we are at it…let’s hope to the heavens that this weekend will be comfy and clear. We are planning to attend the Dallas Asian Festival. We have never been and are pretty excited to experience the foods, sights and sounds! Friday evening can’t get here soon enough!
Woot, Woot Goodwill!
This is my second pair of dance shoes in mint condition that I have found there. The first pair were tap shoes and being that I’m a dancer at heart….a DANCER! You get it, yes? Okay, and while we are at it…I am an even bigger thrifter at heart. Everything you see here is thrifted being that this is an outfit post after all. And I haven’t done an “outfit post” in a long while. So here it is…what I wore today, what I danced in today, what my husband laughed at me in today. And if I can make him laugh…it is all worth it. Other than putting on clothes in the morning, we are getting our house done little by little…we have only 4 or 5 boxes left in our living room! What a feat…considering before it was like 100…so there’s that. And to cap the day off, in this house we finally have a garden flower bed. And we are planting that little thing up. Stay tuned for that! Things are getting “crazy” over at the Liles house…real. real. crazy.
Mothers Day 2013! It was the best one by far! No stress, plenty of mama time, and yes – family time, a lot of really delicious food and the best of the best…laying in a warm bed with my mom watching Hocus Pocus yet again all while while eating nachos. I’m mean, it doesn’t get better than that. It’s the simplest things that can feel the absolute best. And while we are at it, nothing says mothers day for us like a giant bolt art piece. This is the 2nd year we have taken Mothers Day pictures by that sculpture, and it just keeps getting cheesier and cheesier! Only in the best way possible of course.
Though I’m not even a “mama, mama” but just a puppy mama…my amazing mom brought me back Minnie Mouse ears from DisneyWorld and a new Lost In Drawers vintage business card holder! She’s a dear and a half.
We, of course also celebrated Mothers Day with Bo’s mom, Sherry and and his family. And had the best brunch of our entire life. Bottom line, we love our mamas, we love our family and we are blessed in more ways than we can count.
