Hobbsessions



leather jacket: marshalls, top: f21, skirt: marshalls, shoes: dots, necklace: f21, purse: thrifted

Since meeting Patrick, we've developed a number of shared hobbies. It's like we go through these spurts, where we are one-track mind skipbo. and then one-track mind settlers of catan. Some stuck around longer than others. The latest of our hobbsessions (yea? no? ok.) is Cribbage. Here are a few of the others:
:: Skipbo ::
:: Tennis ::
:: Settlers of Catan ::
:: Movies. I've had an epiphany; the reason we like movies so much is because we are out to prove that there ARE good movies that are wholly wholesome ::
:: Raquetball ::
:: Gopher Basketball & Football (Lord help us actually have teams this year)::
:: Going for runs ::
:: N/A Pina Colada Smoothie-making ::
:: Planet Earth & Alaska Gold Rush ::

((BTW, I'm hooking up with Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, where all kinds of bloggers are fashion bloggers for a day))

haha i can appreciate this bc i am such a board game fanatic. when i was growing up my family would go to cape cod for a week during the summers and i could bring two girlfriends along--we obsessively played a different game every year--from LIFE to backgammon to mille bournes to yes, cribbage. my favorites now are scrabble and bananagrams :)

ps love the teal necklace with the purple shirt! it's always been one of my favorite color combinations! :)

First of all, I love the colors in this outfit. The purple, turquoise and gray look so pretty together! Also, I think it's awesome that you guys share hobbies. My husband and I are SO different, and the only hobby we really share is eating. That gets dangerous :)

Becca [Free Honey] said...

I love the tiered asymetrical ruffles on the skirt. And it looks so pretty paired with that very bold royal purple top! I've always had a real soft spot for anything purple. My kindergarten favorite color has stuck with me over the years!
