Did you know that my "town" is so distinctive in it's own style that it has a style named after it? Well, I did, but it didn't hit me until I got an invitation to an ultra-cool event that this is something that is not just a local term. Can you guess where I live by this description.... the term is known as "_______-casual". When you get an invitation with this dress code on it, you would automatically assume that you should come in your "dress" jeans, funky shirts, (the more rhinestones the better) the coolest boots you own, and anything goes in the hair department. Do you know now? And if you know where I live, no fair cheating on this quiz! Can you guess where I live?
I love our "hometown" (even though this is not where I am from, it's where I've been for 17 years! (I moved here when I was only one year old! :) hehehe It's definitely home for me now. It's a wonderful place to live and here's another hint.... we were voted "Friendliest City in the USA" but USA Today. Now surely you know where I live. I have a friend who moved here from Houston (another friendly city.) When she first moved here she was commenting on how nice the people are here and she said, "I never imagined I'd live in a city where I am the asshole." Isn't that funny?
And just because it's Friday, I feel compelled to post a photo (or three).... these are from last week at Connor's birthday celebration. I was playing around with the functionality on my new photo editing software.... fun effects.
This photo is of my neighbor and sweet friend Sonja. She had a baby a few weeks ago and Jack is pretty much in love with this pint sized fellow. The baby's name is Finn and he has two older brothers, who are Jack's best friends. Sonja sent this photo to me in an e-mail entitled "Finn's Fan Club". I'd say that just about hits the nail on the head, huh?
Do you notice the boys have matching shoes and coordinating shoe laces? These three are tight!
