Give me S'more!

One of Jared's bosses gave us a fire pit last year and we've been making good use of it! A tempting s'mores display at Target worked like a charm on me and I bought some planning to go camping with Jared for our anniversary. Well, it ended up being cold and kinda rainy so we decided not to go, but we did make the s'mores in the back yard. Aw yisss.

What I Wore - Oldies but Goodies

Everything featured is more than 3 years old or so except the necklace and shoes so I won't bother posting the usual outfit rundown. The necklace is from Altar'd State and the shoes were a gift from Mom(K-mart I think). The shorts are vintage Guess jeans I thrifted and cut into shorts! I'm pretty pleased with the turn out, I even made the little holes myself. The top and sheer cardigan are from Forever 21 back when I lived in Alaska. It was about 90 something degrees when I tried to take these photos, so bare with the crazy fluffy hairdo :) While I was taking the photos the mama deer made an appearance. We've spotted her a few times down by the creek. This time she was solo eating some plants, but the last time she had three fawns following her arcoss the road! Three!! They were so cute. Hope you're enjoying the muggy hot sunshine as well.

Summer Solstice

So I wanted to hang out and watch the sun set for the solstice but I kind of forgot and got engrossed in something on netflix. You can't really see it from our house anyways, and it was just Bufford and I hanging out. I did put forth an effort to catch some lightning bugs and put them in a jar while Boof watched curiously from the porch. I felt like such a kid, in the best meaning of the phrase. It was so light and fun and carefree to run around the yard and grab them all. They're the only bugs I am not afraid of, they could not possibly bare any ill will, so we have a mutual trust. It was about impossible to get a photo of them glowing. They were all pretty miffed with me stuffing them into a jar and refused to light up, so I let them go right away.
I hope you're enjoying your summer so far!

Boonshoft Museum's Telescope

So I had no idea that this was a thing, but evidently on Friday nights when the skies are clear, the Boonshoft Museum invited guests to come in for free and look into their giant telescope! It was awesome! While we were there we got to see Saturn, Mars, and the Moon. We also got to go onto the roof and see the giant Friday the 13th full moon, and a satellite flare. The scientists that set up the telescope were of course extremely knowledgeable and explained all sorts of things about space that really blew our minds. I definitely recommend taking the trip out to see space!
