Windstorms Of Amsterdam

My mind is all a flutter today.  It’s a bit of pathetic fallacy, what with the rain and wind outside, but it’s also a bit situational.  You see in the past while, I’ve been going to a string of auditions and getting this close to getting the role in each one.  And it’s starting to get me all in a whirlwind.  Husband said that I should be proud that I got so close, but I say, “Does anyone remember the guy who got this close to playing Obi Wan?  Or Han Solo? No.”  There are no runners up in acting.  Hence my brain is clouded and whirling.  It’s not a negative place, just a questioning and confusing place.

So I thought it fitting to share with you my shots from Amsterdam.  The graffiti *random, chaotic art*, the weather while I was there, and the thoughts going on in my head at the time were all very similar to what’s happening up in my head right now. 

Hope you enjoy the pics!

Random Sundays: April (or May) Showers Bring Spring Flowers

I was going to show you my garden today, but alas it’s raining cats and dogs today.  That’s great for my veggies and stuff, but not so good for taking the camera out and snapping shots.  So for now, I thought I’d show you some fun and dandy things that have been making themselves known in my backyard.  *I snapped these a few days ago before the rain*


Zip-up – Walmart; Jeans – Guess; Socks – Calvin Klein.

I’m not one to whine and complain.  Sometimes things aren’t well.  Sometimes Baby won’t let you sleep and the whole day gets on your nerves.  I did get the garden done, or more like my Mama got it done for me and then told me all about it. Thank goodness for Mamas!  I’ll show you the pics tomorrow.  

Have a great Saturday night!

See y’all tomorrow!

Flowers And A Garden

Hat – Ruche; Dress – Spotted Moth; Belt – F21; Shoes – AE.

It’s finally beautiful outside and my pasty self is coming out to play!  But not too much – big hats and sunscreen in full effect here!  I’m loving hats lately and simply can’t get enough of big floppy ones, and fedoras!  You’ll see a lot of those this summer.  And on the agenda this weekend is my garden – so hopefully I’ll have some veggies and herbs to show you soon.  That’s if my black thumb doesn’t get in the way.

True Story:  Baby loves to play “I’m Gonna Get You!”  I say it to her and she runs *crawls* away as fast as she can screaming and giggling until I catch her and tickle her.   So cute it kills me!

May I Offer You Some Grass With Your Coffee?

That’s when i noticed I had baby food on my skirt.
Shirt – AE; Belt & Skirt – thrifted; Shoes – AE.

This skirt is too big for me, but I really like it, so I hitched it up and tightened a belt around it. Voila!  I made it fit.  I’m loving the whole Annie Hall/70’s vibe that’s trendy right now.  Loose clothing, longer skirts, big floppy hats.  I’m diggin’ it!

So while I was enjoying my coffee with a friend, Baby cleaned the entire cafe patio with her knees.  She got into every single thing and scrubbed that deck spotless with her wriggling around!  Oh, and grass is apparently a great appetizer.  I caught Baby eating it in the backyard just before I took her in to have dinner.  *sigh*

Let The Sun Shine In

Fedora – ?; Glasses – F21; Shirt – thrifted; Jeans – Guess; Flip Flops – Abercrombie&Fitch.

I spent most of the day outside with Baby today.  She loves the backyard, even though she’s very wary of the grass.  Other than that, it’s been an uneventful day.  Husband gets back tomorrow from his business trip and I’m looking forward to some help ’cause Baby has been giving me a run for my money in the nights.  I could use some sleep!

On another note, the music video shoot I was doing has been postponed on account of the fact that it’s thunderstorming tonight and tomorrow.  That means I have the day off – just an audition in the morning.  I hope I get it, ’cause I’d get to play a kick-butt assassin! 

Re-Publishing Flowers

Because blogger was down an erased my posts – I’m re-publishing! 

Peter Parker Am I

Vest – H&M; Shirt -?; Jeans – Guess; Earrings – F21; Boots – Ruche

I can relate to Peter Parker – not the super powers due to a spider bite thing, though I do rock at Super Mom even on little sleep – but the whole nerd-never-gets-the-girl thing.  No, I’m not after a girl.  The girl is the metaphorical griffin of life.   I often feel like the underdog – but that’s cool ’cause every dog gets his day.  I’m not the life of the party, or the one everyone gravitates to; I’m the one who watches and listens and snags the chocolate covered strawberries from the buffet table.  And I’m happy being that person – chocolate covered strawberries are good.  No pressure to please, and also no worries.  I like to sit back and watch what happens.  Turning the spotlight on me often makes me nervous.  That’s why I like to act, I guess.  ‘Cause it’s not me up there it’s a different character. 

In high school I remember having those self-confidence issues we all have.  Wanting to be that girl.  You know, the one every guy liked and every girl wanted to be.  But now I’m happy I wasn’t.  That’s a lot of pressure to live up to.  And that’s a lot of eyes looking at you and judging.  I had good friends and got to geek out all I wanted. 

And that has continued to this day.  I’m still not that girl, but I’m the girl in the corner talking to some dudes about BSG, Firefly and Star Trek vs Star Wars over an old scotch.  And you know what?  That’s company I like.  I understand that language. Those are my peeps.  And I’ve got a lot to say about Boba Fett.

Betsey Johnson, Baby!

Baby loves my Betsey Johnson bag!  I knew she had good taste!

Mother’s Day Outfit

Hat – Zellers; Glasses – F21; Shirt – Ruche; Vest – AE; Jeans – Gap; Shoes – AE; Ring – Smart Set; Earrings – F21

The dresses were great, but I’m so happy to be putting together different outfits now!   I’ve been meaning to wear these flares, like, forever!  And I finally got the chance.  They’re so long though that I have to wear a pretty mean heel with them.  That’s not a big deal, but I felt kind of proud of myself that I managed to spend the whole day walking around Toronto in these wedges.  It’s the little things you know???
