Lions and Tigers and Bears

Ford F150

Red Barn

Well, spring is officially upon us. The bears have come out of hibernation! I've seen 5 in the past week or so, checking out our neighborhood. So far they are all pretty harmless, although I was at a party a few days ago and some cubs were out on the deck. We were all ooh-ing and aah-ing until we saw mama bear lumber up...she was huge! The bears are everywhere...I guess that's what happens when you live in a national forest!

Jacket: H&M; Jeans: Uniqlo; Scarf: Edinburgh Woolen Mill; Blouse and Boots: Thrifted

This is a pretty good example of my Tahoe uniform; it means I don't get too many "wtf is she wearing?" stares from the other locals. Although someone did tell me I looked "mighty fancy for the grocery store" when I popped in to get some butter for one of my endless rounds of cookie baking. I've been getting some interesting comments in the past week. Some dude was trying to hit on me in Safeway today and made the mistake of telling me I look "just like that chick from Dirty Dancing". I gave him a withering look, said "nobody puts Baby in a corner" and sauntered off. Shazam!
Hope you all had a totally fab weekend. Mine was filled with lots of work and Royal Wedding obsessing. I'm sure those of you that follow my twitter got a little sick of my Wills and Kate love-fest, but they are just so sweet together!

Hope you're all gearing up for a wonderful week! Tell me about your weekend, did you watch the Royal Wedding?

I love your scarf, I was looking for one just like this all winter! The story about looking like 'that chick from Dirty Dancing' made me laugh! Hahaha! I was Wills&Kate obsessing too, loved the wedding!

I can't believe you see that many bears. I know it must be normal to you but I don't think I have ever seen a bear outside of a zoo. What a wondrous place you live in!

True, that's a good point (visiting blogs to reply to comments)! And thank you! I've been reading blogs for a while and I am so utterly enthused to be a part of the community!

Oh my gosh, hold the phone. When I read the words Tahoe uniform... Lady, I do believe we live less than an hour away from each other! I'm in Reno, haha. What a coincidence. I guess that really puts us in the same community, literally!

You look lovely! I hope the hungry bears keep their distance and don't get too interested in all of your cookie baking. If I was a hungry bear that's the first place I would go. :D

NOBODY puts my baby in a corner! Love it, Lucifer.
I miss you dearly! Hope I can make it there this summer. I miss Tahoe terribly. I miss non-flatness achingly. Glad you are living your fabulous life!

Great shots! I love your "tahoe uniform"! :) I can't believe you've seen so many bears.. I think I've seen like two bears (in the wild) ever.

You live in such a fabulous 'neighbourhood', I would dearly love to be so close to nature and it's beautiful inhabitants. :)
