OOTD Stripes and Scarves

Happy Friday, friends. The weather here has been sunny--but surprisingly windy. And because I hate to be cold, I've been wrapping myself up in scarves and cozy layers every morning, only to be peeling them off as the afternoon warms up. Common sense dressing, you say? You would think that I would have figured it out before the age of 25. 
Dressed for intensive gardening, as tis the season to be replanting our tomatoes and cucumbers if we want to have a chance of any growth before summer's end. Am trying to end my reign as Queen of 
Plant Death this year!
Anthro scarf, '10
Anthro sweatshirt wrap cardi--my fave--scored on Ebay, very comfy, with HUGE pockets and a cozy collar.
BR jeans
Franco Sarto boots

Avery (aka baby Waldo) wore stripes from Baby Gap. Chris and I didn't mean to match, but we both LOVE gray and cozy. So we wore our twinsy outfits and blazed a thick trail through Home Depot's garden center.

We did some informal measuring of her head, length, and Chris wanted to do abdominal girth. She does appear (to us) to have an abnormally large head compared to the rest of her body, but she is about 50%ile on everything. That hasn't stopped us from calling her "Megamind" in private.

I do have a hazy memory of the OB exclaiming that she had a big head when they were pulling her out via c-section, and then hurriedly saying,"She has a big head because she has lots of brains..."

Well, here's hoping. Hoping she's gonna win the National Geographic Spelling Bee at age 12, invest her $10,000 winnings in small-cap funds, quadruple her earnings, and then buy Mama the entire Anthro kitchen line. Thanks, Megamind!


  1. Avery clearly loves being in the Waldo stripes and in the 50th percentile! She is gorgeous in that last shot!
