Those were the words my husband spoke to me as we were taking this set of photos. Apparently the poor chap has realized that he just may have married a 65 year old lady instead of one in her 20's. I couldn't resist this get up however! I had curlers in my hair and some baking to do so the headscarf was necessary really. Not to mention the glasses just completed the look entirely. Hot pink lipstick may have been pushing it, but let's just say I'm Malibu Grandma Barbie. I like that :)
Weekends are the most fantastic time. Friday night Sean and I stayed up until the most ridiculous hour watching old episodes of the Twilight Zone while he cleaned out a few drawers and I put my new curlers in my hair. It was an evening quite well spent. I got a new set of curlers that were wrapped in satin hoping that they would just be the best thing since cat eye glasses. Sadly I was not overly impressed with them. The clasps kept snapping off (clasps are the most important part of overnight curlers) and it was such a trial to get them put back together while your hands are behind your head. It was manageable though and I still might keep them because I need a set!
I also had the strange urge to do a bit of pie baking. Sean doesn't eat pie (seriously, I don't know what is wrong with him), so now I am stuck with this humongous thing all to myself. Anyone want to come over and share :) ?
I feel like I look rather like my grandmother in these photos. Every few nights she sets her hair in curlers and puts a scarf around them just like this. That is how I'm used to seeing her :). It's beautiful :). I never really thought I looked much like her, but I can see the resemblance in these photos! I think this might even be one of her scarves.
Hope your weekend was just as lovely! We even got the prettiest little flurries of snow here (even though it is spring, winter doesn't seem to have figured that out).
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
