September 18th 2011
Over the weekend my husband and I took a little trip from Oklahoma City to Dallas. We explored the city and even sought out some adorable apartments that might just become our home in January. Our freedom was short lived however, as we had to head up to Western Oklahoma so that my husband could get back to his job site.
Doesn’t this desolate road remind you of a scene in the movie Twister? These cows were very interested in the two humans frolicking around looking like idiots. They eventually came to the fence and just stared. Since starting this style blog, I’ve had a paranoid fear that somebody watching would think I’m a complete freak and just stare. I guess I found my ideal audience.

September 16th 2011
I had been waiting with baited breath for it to rain in California. Or puddle. Or to get caught on my parents lawn when the sprinklers pop up (at 5am), giving me an excuse to wear my new wellies. I threw them in my suitcase on a whim, hoping that they would at least keep my feet clean stomping around on my husband’s dusty work site. True fact: I’m skeeved out by spiders, but I’m actually even more bothered by going to bed with dirty feet.
My plane landed in Oklahoma City late Thursday night and I stepped outside to brisk weather and … puddles on the ground? Good thing I was already dressed for Fall weather. Friday morning we awoke to 50 degree temperatures and a drenching thunderstorm. I was so very excited to wear everything you see here.
We found ourselves at the new (outdoor) outlet mall in OKC. It down poured as we ran from the truck to the nearest store, which happened to be Michael Kors. While my hair re-dried (hence the ruffly bangs you see here), I found myself with a shiny new gift around my wrist from my lover. The girls inside the store practically fell over themselves about my boots. At least somebody appreciates them, because my husband merely rolled his eyes when I spotted a
lake giant puddle outside Banana Republic and went right to work stomping around and splashing in it.
He took these pictures, and I think that’s quite evident because they’re the best I’ve posted on this blog so far. I’m not sure if it’s the outfit, the overcast lighting or the fact that he was behind the lens — but I clearly look happy and in love. Sorry to all my other “guest photographers” over these past few weeks, but only one special person can coax that glow out me. It helps that he likes photography too, but honestly — I’m just so happy to be with him in this moment.

Since so many of the pictures from that day came out beautifully, I’ve included far more than usual, but it’s hidden behind the cut for site-loading reasons.
