Hello Friends!

Hello, hello! So, I have news! I have MOVED location! I was experimenting with a new layout over here and realized that my archives were getting horribly messed up. I decided that all in all, it would be easier to move to a new blog address. I'm trying some new things over there, and I'm very excited! I hope you'll all give it a read!
I'll still of course refer back to this blog on my new one, and perhaps even post here sometimes for a true 'Walk A Mile In These Shoes' moment where I document someone else's life and chronicle a piece of their past...or maybe even literally take a walk in their shoes (I mean maybe I'll meet someone who will let me borrow their shoes and I can take them around my yard for a spin? Hmm, the possibilities!)
But anywho, I'm still fiddling around with fonts, colors, headers and such, but give it a look and perhaps stay, for you know, a cup of tea or something.
I'm sorry that this is all horribly scattered brained, but what can you expect--it's a Wednesday after all!
Well, hope to see you all here at On the Corner of Belleview soon!
Thanks, and hello and goodbye!

I never knew that the following two words could put so much misery into my life:

or for all I know, poison oak or sumac.
(the doctor wasn't sure: he said it could be any of the three.)

But whatever it is, it's itchy and it sucks. Anyway, it was spirit week in honor of homecoming which basically means being able to dress up like a fool and not get looked at like you're too crazy. So, to match my poison ivy and my irate mood last week, it was accordingly class color day. Which for some reason unbeknown to me (but sort of ironically) is red!

So, itchy itchy itchy...but still, I'm managing.

(And crossing my fingers that it will be gone soon!)
Annie's shirt, Forever 21 necklace, mom's skirt, gifted headband
Until then, long sleeves for me!
P.S I hyperlinked poison ivy for your benefit, dear reader, so you can visit the official poison ivy site and avoid the dreaded plant at all costs.
(You're welcome.)

Running Club

Once or twice a week, Lineth and I go for runs after school.
Unfortunately on Thursday we hadn't exactly planned for the sudden chill of fall weather and therefore couldn't quite bring ourselves to change from our warm layers into short sleeves and shorts.

So, to pep ourselves up for the freezingness, we opted to warm-up with a more aerobic routine! Who knew that playgrounds could provide so much exercise?

We try to put our game faces on...

...but really, we're just still little kids.

Basically the whole outfit was composed of clothes from my mom's past with the exception of TJ Maxx tights and a Stylish Wanderer astrology necklace. Lineth, Lil, Becky, Sarah, and I split the cost and we trade it around every week. To me, one of the best parts of our 'Sisterhood of the Traveling Necklace' is feeling like I'm carrying something that has a history bigger than I even know. I love picturing the adventures our little necklace has with each of us, and of course seeing how each of us bring our own style to it is always really cool.
Just perfecting that hair flip, (you know, no big deal!)

The homecoming game was last night. The band, as always, was the best part. But sitting on the hill drinking huge one dollar cups full of hot apple cider courtesy of the Little Theater Club and cheering Lily rolling down the grass was a close second. The dance is tonight...I feel like it will be the same ol' routine as always, but who knows? It's been known to surprise in the past...
