Style Musings: Boots and Shorts

(Don't worry Mom, it's parked!)
The other day I was hanging out over at my friend Kristen's house with her and her sister Erika. Erika mentioned to me that my blog post about shower beers changed her life (her words) and why did I not write in my blog more? Considering I thought no one read my blog at all, learning that I CHANGED HER LIFE and outlook on shower beers seemed like a good enough reason to try to write here more!

I love clothes, but generally wouldn't classify myself as "stylish." However, my friends sometimes think I am (they are sweet), and I guess I do have sort of a random and eclectic personal style. So we decided maybe I should write a post that had something to do with that. I just happened to be wearing something that day that has in the past been a point of contention for me, so I figured why not tackle that as a first post in a new segment called Style Musings (not a great name I know, but I couldn't come up with anything better). And so, ladies and gentlemen, I give you: Boots and Shorts.

New Pup!

Well, we have a new pup! I was hoping to adopt from the corgi rescue, but they didn't have any dogs that were right for us for some time and when I randomly saw this guy who was available through another rescue I had that feeling. You know the one, where your gut just tells you that something is right? Anyway we moved forward with adopting him and are now the proud forever home of Dallas!

Sad Things And Happy Things

There has been a lot of change around here lately and possibly more to come. But let's talk about the sad things first, you know to get it over quickly, like pulling off a bandaid.

Where Am I, Where Are We?

Well it has been a really long time since I have posted (as usual), but I wanted to stop in because if I wait much longer I would have to say that it had been a year! Not writing for a whole year is ridiculous.

This weekend I went to the annual Oktoberfest up on Mt. Lemmon. It was cloudy, and foggy, and downright chilly. Oh hallelujah! Finally a taste of real fall and some photos of my own to add to the Pinterest board in the last post.

Woodsmoke Over Misty Mountains

Well here we are, the first day of Autumn. Not that you would know it here in Tucson where it is still in the 90s. Lately (okay, so almost the whole summer actually) I have been quite homesick. I yearn for forests and mountains, rain and the sea. Oh Oregon, how I miss thee. But being trapped in the desert all I can do is turn up the AC and dream of cooler days.

Grand Teton

Well this summer has been super crazy busy, what with Comic-Con, and roller derby, and work trips, and whatnot!

Welcome little girls, red queens, and the maddest of hatters! This year's annual Fanciful Twist Mad Tea Party is a bit different than usual here at Buccaneers and Ball Gowns.
