My birthday is next week, and I have bombarded everyone (i.e. Dad, Mom, and Kelly) with my requests–often changing and always demanding. Haha! Am I spoiled? But of course! My latest have to have item for my birthday that I will probably end up saving up for myself over the new few weeks are one of the pairs of Dr. Martens below. I had black Dr. Martens in my goth phase in junior high, and I wish I would’ve saved them. They’d still be good, I’m sure, but in a fit of anxiety and “your things you own end up owning you” panic, I chunked them one day. The ones below are dreamy, though?! I’m just struggling with which pair I want the most? I think the top ones, but then, I change my mind.
Kelly and I took Mearl on a real adventure last Sunday to de-stress before the first week of classes on campus. We took her for the first time to Craighead Forest Park, and she had a blast. All the new scents were the best thing ever, and she had the opportunity to bark menacingly at several walkers and other dogs. Sadly for her, two of the walkers both said, “How cute! Look at you, killer.” She was not amused. She did love wading through the lake.
I also saw my first mushroom ring which I was thrilled about! I wish a photo could properly capture it, but I would’ve had to have something around to stand on. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything.
I also found these beautiful mushrooms recently in my neighborhood!
And then, I also saw this magical area in the empty lot across from our house. Those teeny white things are flowers. It shows up better on Flickr, but whatever.-
And my favorite beautiful colors of sugared icing on cookie cake that I crammed in my face.
