The Farm











Every so often Dusty and I go out to his dad's farm.  Sometimes we ride around on tractors or pick vegetables.  Sometimes we fish.  And sometimes we just sit on the tailgate and chat.  It's very peaceful and beautiful and there is always a breeze out there, which means it is always abundantly cooler than anywhere else.  Last week, I took my camera along and snapped some photos of the charming, old farm equipment and such.  Which was kind of nice.  So here you go.

Blanket and Tea



Skirt: Belk, Boots: Gift, Top: Gap, Bracelet: Premier, Bag: Michael Kohrs, Necklace: Thrift, Earrings: F21

Those are pretty much the only things I've been interested in all day.  That and hugs.  Which is a negative, seeing as I wouldn't want to contaminate anyone.  Nothing but a change of seasons runny nose and sore throat, but I'm pretty sure I will soon be approaching my imminent death.  I don't do well with sickness.  Or pain of any sort.  So there is my day.  Class.  Three or four cups of hot tea (I lost count).  Blanket and filling out financial aid forms for school.  Need some cuddles.  Oh, and it rained.  All day long.  Extra lovely.
I'm off to bed now, hoping that all will be sunshine and rainbows in the morning.

Favorite Show




Dress: Dillards (Gift from Mom), Jacket: Old Navy, Belt: Thrifted, Shoes: Target, Necklace: F21, Bracelets and Watch: c/o Mimi's

Insight into the exhilarating life of Ramsey:  My most favorite show, currently on television, is Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.  Ka-pow.  I know the fat, grease, and food coma(ness) of it all may be too much for some, but there is little I love more than snuggling up on a Friday night, watching like three episodes, and mentally planning vacations to each location they visit.  There is no other logical way to plan a vacation you guys.  Anyway, this past Friday marked a visit to a barbecue joint outside of Memphis that had me drooling on the remote, even after I had devoured my weight in hot wings and french fries.  I feel absolutely disgusting just typing that sentence.  You guys, this place had invented the "redneck taco," a cornbread flapjack topped with a mound of BBQ pork, sauce, cole slaw, and all that is holy.  Why has this never occurred to me?  So naturally, I have to try it.  Only instead of smoking a whole hog (because the stinkin' smoker just isn't quite big enough and Costco, ironically, doesn't carry whole hogs), I threw some boneless pork into the crock pot and squeezed in 1/2 a bottle of barbecue sauce.  I would say that's pretty much the same thing.  We shall taste test and deliberate over results shortly.

First Taste of Fall





Shirt: Victoria's Secret, Sweater: Old, DIYed with RIT dye, Pants and Necklace: F21, Shoes: Steve Madden, Watch: Mimi's

Today's weather was absolutely lovely.  I mean made it down to the sixties lovely.  That's a "6" in front of that "ties" (!!!), which means I am now in the mood for snuggling, apple flavored delectables, dependably good hair days, and candles all around.  Perhaps this is a bit premature, but I reserve the right to soak up any ounce of fall goodness as I can get it.  And as frosting on the pumpkin chocolate chip cupcake, look at this little goody that nestled itself in my mail today:

 It's been sitting across the couch from me all evening, right behind the great wall of textbooks just waiting to be devoured.  After Evidence and Family Law and Non Profit Law of course.  Because I am a good (or really-scared-of-being-called-on) student after all.  Maybe once I'm snuggled in bed.  That is surely the best place to read fall magazines.  Let's hope this niceness stays around all week!

P.S.  Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes sound delicious and I'm thinking I'll have to invent a recipe for those soon.

Blazer: vintage/mom's, Skirt: UO, Shirt: F21, Shoes: Steve Madden, Flower brooch: DIY, Bracelets: c/o Mimi's

I feel like it ran away super fast and I kind of missed the whole thing while it was here.  Not that summer weather here in Florida has gone away or anything, because that junk is around for a few more months.  But you know, the pack a picnic, pick some berries, lay back and enjoy the stars type things that you are supposed to do all summer?  Well, we never really got around to a whole lot of that.  And I kind of feel guilty.  Like I got so busy doing that I missed out on some being.  I wish we had taken more evenings and Sunday afternoons just to soak up the summerness of summer.  With the camera along for the ride, of course, because I do have a photo wall in the works which I have failed miserably at enlarging recently.

I'm not writing this as a pity post or to whine about summer being over (because, quite frankly, I could really go for some fall temperatures right about now!), but to note on paper {or into the weviverse as the case may be} and to myself to be more present this season and enjoy more of the loveliness that is fall.
You'll hold me accountable, won't you?

Football is back in town



Shirt: Borrowed from sis, Shoes, Steve Madden, Jeans: J.Crew, Watch and bracelets: c/o Mimi's and John Wind

Which makes for a crowded mall on Saturdays, hamburgers becoming an every-weekend affair, extra afternoon naps for me because heaven forbid I make it through a whole game awake, a busy boyfriend (because he absolutely can make it through a game awake), a sleepy puppy who pees when we don't give him enough attention, a full house because you always have to have friends over in order to make it football, the warchant being back in town, tailgating invites, newbie college students living the campus life, and really happy (and preoccupied) menfolk.
Shopping season is here guys!
