Ever since I rediscovered this shirt at the bottom of my laundry hamper, I’ve been totally in love with it. It’s so comfortable and soft and fits great. You’re probably going to be seeing a lot more of it in the future.
In a move completely uncharacteristic of me, I got my first mani-pedi this week. Not bad. I’m not sure if it’s worth the $35 plus tip I paid for it, but it was a fun experience. And my nails were pretty for awhile.

I love Halloween!

If I take anything away from this situation, I think it will be that fluorescent lighting is no one’s friend. Well, at least it’s not mine, and who the hell wouldn’t want to be friends with all this?
I got the title for this post from my co-worker who told me “I like this new-age deadhead earth-mama thing you’ve got going on here.”

These earrings are made of Tibetan prayer bells I got in Oregon last Christmas. I bought them for $0.50 each, then Ben and I walked down to the bead shop and the nice ladies that work there sold me some clasps for $1.00 each. They even attached the bells to the clasps for me.
If you hadn’t guessed by my regular pattern of wearing two of everything, this skirt is actually two skirts.
Wrap-around skirts were on sale for $15 each at a little hand craft store by my grandma’s house this weekend, and I love a wrap-around skirt. If I was only allowed one kind of skirt for the rest of my life, it would wrap around. The only problem is that every wrap-around skirt I find doesn’t wrap around enough of me to account for common decency, but since they were $15 each, I just bought two and wrapped them such that the parts of the two skirts were on opposite sides of my body so that the most anybody would see was a piece of the other skirt. This made for a fuller, more flowey skirt, which I always enjoy.

We only got one good picture today, so I’m including the video Ben made to test out his phone’s camcorder abilities. Please ignore my face, I’m concentrating very hard on making my butt movements match my hand movements and not doing a very good job.

A word about my tits: I am wearing a strapless bra from Lane Bryant that I consider to be the best thing my boobs have seen since Ben. Say what you will about their clothes (in my humble opinion they’re overpriced and frequently dowdy), but the bras at Lane Bryant are basically the best thing ever. I’ll never buy a bra at any other shop.
