I went thrifting with Carlie the other day looking for items for her nursery. Our trip was pretty unsuccessful except for me discovering a couple cool throws for the house. I like the cozy eclectic vibe they bring, and throw them over doors and fold them in stacks to keep near the couch. They are always easy pieces to find when thrifting. Just throw them in the wash on gentle and let them air dry and they are ready to snuggle!
I was reading Jenny Highsmiths blog the other day and loved how she made an outfit board that combined this actual scarf with a black and white dress, so it made we want to try the combo today with this old thrifted shirt from Gap. I thought the cowboy boots went well with the scarf and faded jeans. Paired with my rain jacket and messy bun, it made for a cute rainy day look.
I never know how to wear a scarf. I feel like they make me look top heavy and I really dislike huge ones like these, the kind where if you unfold them all the way could be a sheet on a twin bed. But alas, I keep buying them for the pretty patterns. I know I can look at one of those demonstrations on the fifty ways of wearing a scarf, but today I'm just taking the chance that this way was one on the list. Ugh I'll get it right next time!

Today we went to have our taxes done and took Coes out to lunch. I have given him and his daddy the nickname "Pizza Punks" because that is what they always want, and that's where we went today, Stevie B's, or as I like to call it, Stevie B nothing but carbs. It is a pizza bar with crazy varieties of pizza. Some our favorites are Buffalo Chicken, Spinach and hite cheese, and the Bavarian chocolate. Cohen liked the grape tomatoes from the salad bar, he calls them strawberries. It was fun going out with my favorite guys.
