"Fire on the mountain, run boys run/the devil's in the house of the rising sun."



I just went back down to the San Francisco Bay to have a little quality time with the fam and enjoy some non-snowy weather ( was pouring with rain the whole time. I bite my thumb at you, weather gods!). I went with my friend Rachel, who's from Virginia, so it was so much fun to get to show her around. We went for a very muddy walk on the reservoir, lost the dogs after they chased after a pack of turkeys and then found them half an hour later, explored Grizzly Peak (the truck was far from happy about all the hills, but we made it!), had some exciting thrifting finds (an airplane brooch, 80s sunnies, books on conspiracy theories, and so many country cassette tapes...Willie Nelson what whaaat!), ate ridonculous amounts of cheese then salivated over the raw food at Cafe Gratitude, had some near death experiences at the crazy intersections in Berkeley (2 girls+huge old beat up truck+bay area=confusion), bought the most perfect bridal shower gift in the world and tons of cards from Blue Barnhouse, cooked up two epic feasts, played with my chicken Beatrix Potter, went mobbin' on my brother's minibike, watched my brother get an award for excellence in automotive technology at my old high school, sucked on sunflower seeds til we were oversaturated with salt, ate ice cream and drank beer, played shuffleboard (I beat Rach and our friend Chris twice!), got spanked by Rachel at pool, talked to my sister on the phone who I have not spoken to in months (she's always off doing things like staying in monasteries in Tibet and going on the Trans-Siberian Railroad), did some more mobbin on the minibike, and had an epic drive back up the pass to Tahoe this morning. We spent the whole car ride listening to a cassette we got called "Driving Tunes: Country, Volume One" and blasted Devil Went Down to Georgia like it was going out of style. It was so much fun! Sometimes I miss living close to a city...but then every time I come back to the mountains I remember how much I love being here!



I have been feeling weird about posting my outfit details as of late because it's always all thrifted, but here goes: All thrifted except for the tee, which is h&m. Yaaaay!


What have you lovelies been up to this week? Tell me some happy things!

Wow, sounds like a really really really good time =) Your outfit is so cute, I love the bright red shorts and how you edited the photos so that the red shines even more!
And I think it's so cute that your chicken's name is Beatrix Potter :D

Hm my week wasn't nearly as good as yours. My highlights were visiting the hairdresser and an extensive shopping spree so far. Lame, I know ;)

Whew! You did have a busy week. You look great. I like the colors. Everything I wear is always vintage or thrifted too. I feel weird cause all my outfit details go thrifted, gifted, vintage, wash, rinse repeat. But that is ok! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I can't believe that you still have snow! Crazy! At least you can still wear super cute outfits. :) Love those shorts.

Those pancakes sound divine. I love cooking on my days off as well...that and organizing (which I actually love!) hehe

Hello, Neat post. There's a problem with your website in internet explorer, might test this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a big portion of people will leave out your magnificent writing because of this problem.
