Momma surprised me when I came home with new patio furniture that she found at Sears of all places. It's quite lovely actually, and she got four pieces (loveseat, two chairs, and coffee table) for $700 when at any other place it could be worth a couple thousand. She put on some really cool electric candles that are battery operated but look really real and I was convinced at first that they were actual candles. Add a stack of great books, iced tea, and mom's killer summer orzo pasta salad, and I'm good to go. It's a great place to contemplate the easy yet awkward break up with the boyfriend and to wonder why I am sitting outside in the heat when I could be in the air conditioned comfort of my home or out with my friends, who are pissing me off to the extreme. Won't get into details... but I'm sick of people forgetting about me during the summer.
Anywho, I did go out to the county fair with some friends. Oh, did I mention that the birds nest on the table is real and was found by the gardeners in the backyard? Super cool... I can't believe birds made it. It's quite sturdy.
Catherine and I on the Zipper. Scariest. Thing. Ever.
From the swings!
Lovely view from the giganto ferris wheel!
Hang glider ride with my spiffy faux wayfarers that I got 3 for $20 =)
