Woodland Creatures: Part 1

Back in 2012, I gave 2 of my nieces a glam rock makeover.

The girls came to visit me, again, this summer. They are now 7 and 9. Here we all are with an American flag and a giant spider:

This year, we threw around a few ideas for a photoshoot. Ghosts, Fairies/Woodland Creatures, aliens, mermaids, etc. We settled on Woodland Creatures as we had been going on multiple hikes during their time with me in Austin. The setting of flowers, rocks, trees, creeks, and dirt inspired thier looks.

Here are a few beauty shots. I'll post the pics of them in the "magical forest" next.

Honey Wine

We went to the Cedar Park Farmer's Market held in the parking lot of Lakeline Mall this morning. We had burgers, bought a bunch of produce and products, and got a refill of honeywine mead in our growler. Meridian Hive Meadery makes an excellent product. Go to their website to find where you can purchase their goods.

Like I said, the farmer's market is in the parking lot of a mall. I was all out of my moisturizing sunscreen, so I talked Dale into running into Dillard's with me to hit the Lancome counter. (bonus, Lancome is running their special event right now so you get all sorts of goodies if you spend $35 bucks).

As we approached Dillard's, I realized I was not finished with my honeywine. Yes I got a to-go cup when I had my growler filled. Do you think I am some kind of amateur?

I was not about to gulp my drink down. No way. I wanted to enjoy every sip. So, I took that solo into Dillard's and placed it on the Lancome counter as I did my shopping. The Lancome lady almost knocked it over as she was handing over my free baguette. Yes, you read that correctly. For some reason, Lancome is giving away bread today.

After I completed my purchase, we made our way back through the bags and shoes and exited the building.

And that is how you do Saturday morning.
