New Computer and a New Old Skirt

This is my first post on my new computer, so if it is stranger than usual, it just means I am still trying to figure this thing out.  My other one was acting sassy and slow, and since I have a computer nerd husband, I didn't have to whine to much before I was able to get a new one.  : )  Thanks Husband!!!  It is an Ultrabook with Windows 8 and a sexy aluminum casing.  For the most part I really like it, but I'm having a hard time adjusting to a few things.  The touch pad is super touchy (bazinga!) and has all these new functions that I'm working on figuring out.  And the freaking space bar is making me nuts!  I feel like I have to slam it to make it work.  Other than that it is fabulous.  The screen is big and clear and I have 10 key.  I also really think I will learn to like Windows 8 because it has a lot of neat functions and capabilities.  Okay, that's enough nerding it up for now!
A few weeks ago I won a drawing over at this lovely blog called Veranellies for a super cute vintage skirt.  I'm just a slacker and pretty much hate hate hate pictures of myself, so I have been putting off this post.  But here it is. Can you tell how awkward I am even though you can't see my face?  Ridiculous.
My parents house.  My brother and I plan to build a mini golf course here...

In my defense it was wicked windy out!  Anyway, this came from an Etsy shop called Stranger Bird Vintage and I love it!  I love the pear on the pocket and the shape of this simple wrap skirt.  It is a bit too long for me, so I had to roll it a few times on my waist (hence the funny bunching of my shirt).  Maybe The Grandma can help me hem it when she gets back from snow birding in Arizona.


  1. So cute! Looks easy enough that maybe I can get Hanna to make me one:-)
