A Bushel and a Peck

You wanna know what I'm really loving right now? My brand spanking new skirt from the Etsy shop A Bushel and a Peck. (The designer extraordinaire also has a super fun blog by the same name.)

The packaging alone - Swoony.

You wanna know what else I love? I love having a husband who is diligently teaching himself the fine art of photography.

Actually, that's a lie. Sometimes I really don't like it at all. Sometimes, when it's late at night and I'm sitting here working or blogging or reading I don't necessarily love him sitting at the other end of the couch and photographing me in all my late-night ugliness in continuous shooting mode.

You don't believe me?

I'll bet that shut you right up.

But! When you have a pitch perfect new skirt that you want to show off, it comes in handy to have 45 shots of it to choose from. I'm telling you what, even a simple walk down the sidewalk is dangerous around here.

Look at that fabric! The colors! The pom pom trim!

Fyi, if you happen to see me over the next couple of moths, I'll probably be wearing this.

If you need to find me in a crowded room just look around for the prettiest skirt and you'll find me in it. Oh, I'm also 5'10", so that should help, too.


PS - It's Friday! Celebrate by checking this and this out.
