This painting is an Alice Neel and it's one of my favorites called Benny and Mary Ellen Andrews. I just love how she painted portraits while capturing a little slice of life and her choice of color is vibrant and very her own. This painting I have visited a few times in MOMA in New York and I think this would be just the outfit and supplies to visit it with.
This weekend I'm off to a Portland Blogger get together and hanging out with some of my gal pals. Yah!
What are up to this weekend?

I have been doing quite a bit of thrifting lately, which is one of my favorite things to do in the whole wide world. I love just going bright and early and following the estate sale signs and discovering a place with old things. And! When you go to a really great sale- it's like you can't wait to find the next and then the next. I haven't done much thrifting since the baby has been born because I'm not sure how I could bring her with me while thrifting. Some of the old houses are packed with so much old stuff and not clean stuff... almost like the show hoarders.. and she is so curious and loves to touch everything! Tim has been helping me and watching her and having daddy and baby time but I did miss thrifting.
Cardigan= "Borrowed" from my mom's closet.. :)

I hope to inspire her, make her laugh, and help her to be the best person she can be and wants to be. Being a mommy I reflect a lot on my own childhood and think about the type of mother I want to be and hope to be. Being a new mommy, I have learned to appreciate my own mother and makes me realize more every day how I finally get what it's like being a grown up.
Nora has moved on from the printer and now reorganizing my mail. :) My mothers day, we went out for yummy bacon cheese burgers and french fries and then took a long walk around the neighborhood.
It was my perfect day.
What did you do this weekend?

Here are a few snippets of one of our park voyages and Nora had a blast. Nora loved being hung upside down and got the giggles. They played endless rounds of peek a boo and crawling around the blanket. She loved putting her toes in the grass and discovering pine cones. We brought a picnic and lounged in the sunshine, soaking everything in and by the end of the day Nora was completely worn out which meant a 3 hour nap. :)Best day ever.
