pants on fire...

i overheard esmé describing her new tumbling class to her sisters...




there were clowns and they popped balloons and then monkeys came and shot off some guns. and there were rocket ships. i had a staring contest with a wickle cat. i was scared at first, but then i liked it.




did she think that would make them jealous?

very much digging this shop called bona drag. stumbled on it while hunting down my dream harness. look at this one, will you? i will own one by summer. this is not a resolution. just a tiny hope. oh! and this ring? swooning over its hidden personality. i think i'm drawn to things and people who hide part of their sparkle. does that make sense? eh. it's monday. xoxo.

I'm digging the ring, but that hand.. must have escaped from esme's circus. It is freaking me out.

it made me jealous. if i would have known that, i would have taken dance when i was little. i thought you had to actually dance and was, therefore, a bit put off.

i wish i could have had some killer ballet shoes like those when i was little. i also wish my dance class was half as exciting as hers.

i would very much like to sign up for this tumbling class. i think it's precisely what i need in my week. i'll bring the cupcakes and extra fairy dust.
and oh, those photos make me miss ballet so. i think it's time to start with that again.

a staring contest with a cat?! that might be the creepiest thing i've heard all day. i get so creeped out when animals stare at me.

but those shoes and the purple feather necklace? nothing but fabulous.

AMAZING ring!!

Mrs.French said...

sounds absolutely nothing like the tumbling class i took years and years ago...this one is about a zillion times better....goodness, i adore this post! xo t

That made me giggle.

Three girls are so much fun.

And I don't understand the harness piece. I don't think I would be able to wear it correctly and I have a college degree. :)

Am I the only one who doesn't know what a wickle cat is?

That ring is a.mazing.

kristin...there's a book we've got from the UK, and ickle i think is baby talk for little. meme's version is wickle.

i should probably edit her!

and z...for some reason, i am so darn drawn to those harness pieces. like, over a tank in the summer? no? i think yes. i think...but at that price, i need to think hard. xoxo.

Oh my goodness...are you serious? This is how dear, sweet esmé described her tumbling class? I LOVE her..what a little imaginative smartie that one is! So happy to have a moment to stop by and say "hi". I miss you. xoxo

A little too precious. Really.

Did you see that Viewmaster story? I am COMPLETELY intrigued. Trying to figure out how much money I am willing to risk for what my Mom would call "a pig in a poke."

And, yeah, I bet Esme's story made her sisters jealous. Shoot. It made me jealous. I'd pay a lot to go to a class like that.
