I can haz dis?

Infinity pool at the most amazing condo complex in West Palm!

You know you’re in Florida when…

A whole aisle in Target is dedicated to the Miami Dolphins.

The World in Gold

This amazing photo was taken by my stellar fella Christopher, and I think it is so great that it deserves props on The Camera Phone Diaries.  It was taken at Rutger’s University and even though I hate New Brunswick, this is beautiful!

My kitty feels bad that I have to work all day long, so she likes to lend a paw (or two)!

114 Days Overdue.

It was a warm Saturday afternoon way back in May (the 22nd to be exact).  I was in New Jersey and was on the hunt for two things:

1. Old Navy Sandals

2. TJ Maxx sale racks

I pulled into the mall parking lot, entered into the air conditioned building, meandered casually past a few new (and overpriced) stores, and eventually made it to Old Navy.  It was crowded as people were desperate to shake away their winter blues with brandy-dandy new spring and summer gear.  I couldn’t blame them as I was on the very same mission.  After a long and frigid Speculator winter, I was craving just a tiny taste of what the next few months would bring.  Including,but not limited to, my new summer wardrobe…which of course begins with $2.00 sandals.

However, my daydreams of that “flip” and that “flop” and of showing off my new pedicure and of wiggling my toes freely in the warmth of the sun….vanquished in the 3 seconds it took me to process this:

Alas, though my day was not unfolding as I had foreseen…this would not ruin my positive spirits nor my quest for the rest of my summer necessities: beautiful and bright dresses and skirts, tanks and blouses to match, swimwear and fantastic hats and accessories.  What better a place to go than TJ Maxx?  Okay, well…there’s Loehmann’s and Forever 21 – but those stores were not on the way home from the mall.  Therefore, they temporarily did not exist.  Sadly, neither did TJ Maxx:

They were conveniently remodeling…IN MAY!  Who makes their business decisions?  Crazy, crazy kids.  Now, as tragic as this tale may seem.  Since I am living 114 days in the future, I can tell you that I did acquire several pairs of Old Navy sandals a week or two later.  I also managed to pay several visits to Forever 21 and a few thrift stores.  Although, the “Cassi” look never did quite manifest itself this season.  There were simply not enough dresses in circuit, but I managed.  Now I can begin shopping for the fall! 🙂

April 28 2010

In the Adirondacks, April snow storms, hail, showers, and sleet bring May black flies and muddy feet.

One of these things is not like the other…

Springtime!

Apparently my camera phone has really good quality when it’s sunny outside!

Baby Shower!

A friend of all three of us up here at CAMP-of-the-WOODS had a baby shower on Wednesday.  It was beautiful and so much fun!  Here are just two of my favorite photos from the night.  Unfortunately, you have to be my facebook friend to see the rest!

PS:  Chris and I made homemade salsa last night.  I have no pictures to prove it, but my breath still reeks of onion! Ick!

“School Work”

We have to create 4 advertisements this semester using our own photos.  This is my first and I must say, I really love it…
