New: Vegetables & Shoes

We planted quite a few veggies this weekend. Tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, hot banana peppers, finger eggplants, & squash. Pretty ambitious for our first vegetable garden, huh? We've grown tomatoes in pots before so I'm fairly confident about them but the eggplants are already looking a little sad. And something (deer? chipmunk?) has eaten a squash. Hrm.

Something I'm very confident about, however, are my new pink Birkenstocks. I loooove me some birks. I have the traditional leather ones that are about 10 years old - at least - and some baby blue ones that are about 5 or 6 years old. They hold up so well. That's how I justified these. Well, that and the fact that they were about 60% off at Sierra Trading Post. That place is dangerous. (And I'm wearing my Nick & Nora flamingo cropped pj pants in the pic - LOVE THEM!!)

I had to get these for Dawson - his little pigs are too cute in them. Must get picture of him wearing them. And I don't feel guilty at all - I got them on Ebay and he is SUCH a shoe fanatic! It's hilarious - he'll take shoes over toys any day. That's my boy.


  1. Birks are hands down my fave everyday shoe...hands down! lol . i love your pink pair, they must be sooo comfy

  2. Oooh those are so pretty and girly! I love Dawson's little shoes too, they are so tiny and cute!
