Art and Shiny Pants

 You might not be able to see this so well in the picture, so I feel the need to tell you that my jeans are shiny! They're practically iridescent, and they are the best jeans I've ever seen. Angel and I spotted them in the store at the same time and agreed they were perfect. In the past, when I thought I'd found the perfect article of clothing, it didn't turn out to be so perfect because they didn't have my size, but this story had a happy ending, as you can tell, because I wore my new jeans on our date to the art festival in a nearby town.

The good news is that Angel did not fall in the river while eating ice cream. I told him that he especially should not fall in the river because he had his iPod in his pocket. Otherwise, it wouldn't have been as crucial that he stay dry.

The other good news is that we saw penguins, fish, and other somewhat unidentifiable art that nevertheless looked really cool. This art festival involves various sculptures, paintings, and other forms of art installed outdoors and inside buildings all over the downtown area. You get to walk a couple miles and see lots of unusual things for free, so this is a yearly event that I always enjoy! said...

cute jeans! you can sort of tell that they're shiny because they really do pop in the photograph! and great choice to pair it with the trenchcoat. i like that a lot. i need to get me a classic trenchcoat. i have a shiny purple one, but obviously it's not very versatile.
and what a cool event you all went to! you all are adorable!
also, is that last piece of work one that you can press yourself into? either way, i wish i could see that in person! it's so cool!
have a great wednesday!

Naw - I LOVE those penguins! So uber cute!
And those 'pin board' things that you push in with the shapes?? They are my favourite. My cousin has a little one and we mess around with it all the time - trying to see what shapes we can make. Noses make a good mould! :p
