Signs Of Summer

You can tell Summer is in full swing around here.  We've been enjoying get-togethers with friends, we've been doing our best to hit the pool when we can, and Hope is in super-duper birthday planning mode.  Not to mention being totally and completely eaten up by mosquitos.  That's summer in MO for you!  ;)

I've been working on my speech for the Texas Style Council coming up here REALLY soon-- I'm so nervous and excited about it.  Are any of you going?  I'm really hoping to meet some of you!

  6. What an adorable bikini!! Those first sunnies are from Tumbleweeds, right? I can't seem to find another pair like them but I adore the wood frames!!

    It is "winter time" here in Australia (although for a Canadian it feels more like fall) but I can't wait for it to get hot again next month!!

    Have fun!

    1. Actually, the first pair is from UO several years ago! They are just plastic frames. I do have the Tumbleweeds heart sunnies, though, and I love them!
