do: detour.

edit: some of you asked about my crazy flamingo swimsuit. when seth & i were shopping for his suit (his actual suit, not a bathing suit) we parked outside of jc penny. i don't think i've literally ever bought anything from there, but as we were walking out to our car i spotted this baby from across the store. $22 later, she was mine.

while en route to the wedding in north carolina, we actually made a little detour to memphis tennessee to visit my parents. it was a brief visit, but our first since they relocated last summer. it was nice to finally get a picture of where they live and what their lives are like. their area (collierville) is really beautiful and they have a salt water pool in their back yard which was a welcomed respite from the heat and thick humidity. 

i don't have many pictures to show for our time there because it really was brief, but here are the few that i took (mostly with instagram)...
almost soon as we got out of the car, we got into the pool.


so sassy.


it's okay if you think this bathing suit is fugly. i love it.


on our last night my mom made an amazing nicoise salad. paired with a couple delicious cheeses and wine--it was the perfect summer meal. 



can't wait until our next visit!

    2. Thanks Bethany! Got it pinned :)

      Hey - would you consider blogging a summer-type outfit wearing those cute leather booties you have, the ones that fold over. I think the last time you blogged about them you were wearing them with the blue green hand knit cowl and a yellow sweater (one of my fave outfits of yours!). I'm on the fence about buying a pair!

      Thanks! :)

    3. sure! i actually wore them recently with a ruffly skirt & to be totally honest, i think it maybe makes my legs look short (let's face it, they ARE short...) but i still think it was pretty cute!

  6. Flamingoes and pineapples have been my favorites lately. I'm currently painting my dining room chairs a bright flamingo pink (surprinsingly, my husband was very excited about that, go figure) To see more info please visit essayswriters.org/assignment.
