oklahoma

We finally made it out to see the play in the park. It was a million and one degrees, but luckily we got there early enough to set our blanket on the more shady side. We met some friends, had ourselves a little dinner in the grass, and sweat it out with all the other crazy people. Its amazing what some people pulled out of their picnic baskets. The people watching was worth the price of admission.

morning hike

Jon drove by part of the greenbelt for work the other day, and he was convinced that there might be water down in the creek. So twist my arm, we went on a morning hike to investigate. Now we have gone in the summer a few times before, and it was dry as a bone, so imagine our surprise and delight at this sight. We found it!

quilt fangirl

One of my favorite people to follow on instagram is Folk Fibers. She makes the most gorgeous quilts, with fabric she dyes using natural bits. Plus, she lives near Austin. This past weekend, we stopped by the Northern Grade market downtown, and she was there! With her quilts! AHHHHH!!!!  The quilts are even more beautiful in person. Here is a picture of me just super happy standing in front of this masterpiece.

walton’s fancy and staple

Ahhh. Bakeries and plants. My two favorite things. The toast at Walton’s Fancy and Staple is delicious, and the indoor plant game is on point. It probably helps that they are also a florist.walton1 walton2

Well, looky what I found! Maybe next weekend I can talk myself into buying some.walton3 walton4

Jon’s new phone has turned him into quite the artsy photographer. I like it lots.Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 9.52.16 AM

pie date

We decided our summer thing (sometimes we skip spring here, so we need to plan early) is to go get pie. I LOVE pie. Pie is perfect. It fits any occasion, season, mood. Pie is happiness, and I want perfume that smells like it.

Our first pie adventure was to Quack’s Bakery. It was a not too warm evening, and we sat outside, sharing pie with friends. We shared a slice of peach pie and chocolate cream. And somehow the air vents wafted fresh pie right past our noses, and I wanted to camp in their parking lot forever.

(second photo from here) I was too busy deciding on types of pie to be bothered with photos.

longhorn nap time

This is a pillow for a little longhorn. One of our friend’s brought over a naked pillow. Her little guy uses it in the car, and it needed a cover. They are big Longhorn fans, so I added a big friendly face to some grey fleece, and sewed a simple pillow cover. Ready for lots of car napping, which I was excellent at when I was little.
