30 for 30 Winter, day 1

01 Feb
Red and black and grey and red and black and grey.

These tights are out of control

Today isn’t just the kick-off of Kendi’s 30 for 30 challenge, it’s actually more significantly known as another type of day; the day I had a hot fudge sundae. That’s right, the hubby and I snuck off to lunch at one of our favorite digs, also known as the place where we had our first date over 7 years ago. I insisted on dessert.

Not just any dessert; a gooey, sweet, creamy decadent full-size vanilla hot fudge sundae with fresh whipped cream. I just made you want one. Yeah, that’s how I felt, it was one of those kinds of days. I’ve been struggling, to put it kindly, with finding a WordPress theme that meets my criteria. I’ve discovered that once in a blue moon it happens that I am not at all easy to please. Not in the least bit. I may be driving myself just a little crazy. And someone else too, who shall remain nameless, though it’s safe to assume we cohabitate in matrimony.

And then, the sundae. Yes, all is well again.

I leave you with my first pick kicking off day one. My second, and only other, ebay purchase: Another vintage piece under $20, including shipping. Red is good. Sundaes are better.

The view from my living room window

As you can see, I really do live in the house in the clouds. The clouds, or high fog bank as it stands, is sitting on top of the entire San Francisco Bay. If it were not foggy you would see downtown San Francisco in the background, along with the Bay Bridge. We live just high up enough that this is the scene on many mornings.

Deets: Vintage 80′s dress/ebay, scarlet red tights/We Love Colors, stainless steel ring/Münich, Germany, necklace/Alexis Bittar, elastic top shoes/Munro.
