Huge Sweater and some Fall Flamingos

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. This weekend I celebrated my darling Steve's birthday. We had a nice big dinner at China Cottage followed by drinks with friends. I was so tickled by how much love this guy has. He is very lucky. Yesterday Steve and I ran the Mayor's 5k. It was so nice outside and a perfect afternoon for a run. I didn't do as well as I wanted, but we all have those days right? I guess it wasn't my race. Then Sunday night we went to a friendsgiving dinner hosted by a few of the people in the Protomen. If you don't know them, check them out. Especially if you like rock operas about Megaman (I mean, who doesn't?). Also, the lovely Jen from Librarian Tells All was there! We got a chance to talk about blogging, knitting and some good books!
We did this outfit shoot at at the Shops at Fatherland. It is a new development in East Nashville that provides small storefront space to new businesses. We were there on a Sunday, so most of the stores weren't open. I love small businesses and I think that this little sopping area is such a great idea. Makes me wish I had the knowledge/drive/ability to open up a small shop. 
I purchased this sweater two summers ago at the Nashville Flea Market. I got it because I planned on going as the Log Lady (from Twin Peaks) for Halloween that year. I bought it clearly as a costume, but wound up loving it. It is just the right size on me and I love the pattern. I never wound up dressing up as the log lady, but now I wear this sweater far to often. My sweater has something to say to you...
So the flamingo tights are making a comeback! I know that orange and pink don't really match, but whatever. I want to wear these tights as much as possible before it gets too cold. Of course, I'm wearing one of my creations from my new Etsy store, The BombPom. If you want to win a pompom barrette and earrings don't forget to enter my giveaway here!

    1. Steve went to college with most of the Protomen so that is my connection. They are a really wonderful group of people. And also super talented!

    1. The sweater is key. I have no idea what I'll do when it finally kicks the bucket. It's starting to get holes....

  10. Aww, thanks for the shout out! It was so nice to finally get to talk with you. Let me know about possible sleepover plans, yes?

    Also: these tights require some serious bravery! Wow. At first glance, I thought they had a diagram of human musculature printed on them.

    1. There are muscle tights out there- and I really want a pair. They also have some that have your skeletal structure. Anatomically correct tights for the win!
