A Concert, Wedding, and Father's Day. Illustrated.

This weekend was fabulous.

It started off with us signing our lease for our new place and ended with me running five miles.


I know, I can't believe it myself. (It's been, like, four years since I've run that far.)

In between - we went to a concert, a wedding, and a Father's Day brunch...

Switch! Foot!
I've loved Switchfoot since I was a sophomore in high school. Aside from being awesomely talented, they are more than just pretty faces and catchy lyrics. (See: "When success is equated with excess/The ambition for excess wrecks us.")

Summer festivals are the best. Especially ones with no seats - just lawn. Quintessential concert photo.

The next morning my cousin got married. I wore my new dress, see?

Couple of the Year.
Apparently I don't get sick of making him pose in photos with me.

Two sisters + One Mike = Awesomeness.
Two of my sisters, Mike, and me. They called us "The Triplets" and one of my cousins couldn't tell Emmie (purple dress) and I apart. Wow.

My 86-year-old grandpa was drinking a screwdriver. So I had to get one, too. Naturally.

Red tongue.
The result of too much grenadine.

    My youngest brother used to be IN LOVE with switchfoot, he rotated these 2 switchfoot shirts he had EVERY OTHER DAY and we used to get SO sick of seeing him in them, we called it his uniform LOL!

  18. I'm not sure what happened to your last post about the Gap clothes, but I wanted to tell you how much I loved it. In fact, I loved it so much that I got the same email and decided to jump on the bandwagon, thanks to you! I met Justine this morning and I picked out a few adorable items from the Gap. Thanks so much for your inspiration! :)

    p.s. I got the same dress and I love it too!

  19. I agree - no chairs, just LAWN is the best way to see a show :)
