::saturday miscellany::

Here's a layout using my toybox collection.

Sale update:
Didn't make out so hot.
Grabbed a little for everyone including a much-needed suit for Rob at $400 less than original price! But never having tried a Hugo Boss suit on before, we found out he isn't a universal 40Long after all.

Changed my mind on nearly all the children's clothes after getting them home and the three dresses I picked up for myself...too...well, form fitting. So it was a bust, which is a good thing in the end. Less money spent and I satisfied my curiosity. The best of both worlds.

Of course I didn't come away completely empty handed (it was a sale after all). The two things I did think worth keeping included a basic white ribbed Caslon tee (love the fit and feel of all thier pieces) and a Halogen hoodie in that aqua/turquoise color that's everywhere that we'll all be sick of soon but nontheless is fun right now to mix with white in the summer or brown in the fall/winter.

So I'll revise the above. I made out pretty good really.

I've been thinkin a little about "free" thanks to an inspiring post by Cheryl.

I've been thinking also of investing a little into making my photography better. Saw this.
And I love Bryan Peterson's photography.

Luke was given an additional 15 hours by the Regional Center bringing his total to 40 hours of therapy a week. Seems like a huge amount for most parents to comprehend but we've gotten used to being seen as unconventional. For a child whose virtual every waking moment should be filled with interaction, this is a true answer to prayer.

Hee hee Bek. That's true. I think their thing is that they want you to appreciate cows, not eat them essentially but chicken. Therefore...chick-fil-a... Funny really.

I agree about satisfying curiousity - sometimes I just go for a looky-loo and am SO happy I don't find anything :)
