I guess there isn't a "Happy Rat Mom Day". Photo of Fred taken by Heather
And in other random bits from the past week.....
We welcomed two new groups of students to our graduate programs last week and this is what I wore to greet them. Really, how could they not feel welcomed with Hello Kitty? I found them on the sale rack at Forever 21 when I was in Toronto earlier in the week, and couldn't resist.
We've had some Spring-like weather lately, so inspired by flowers and budding trees I got out the purple and green. Clockwise from top left: silver bling from various sources, and bracelet purchased from Debra Rapoport; the summer madras plaid converse; my beautiful copper lady necklace found at Lovesick Vintage a couple of years ago.
It was even knee socks weather - ooooh, the delight of a warm breeze on bare knees!

I always look forward to getting a fresh 'do and last week my cool hair gal Melanie and I decided that dark pink and orange would be the summer colour combo (it matches my Krista necklace!) Then, on a whim, out came the curling iron and well, you can see from the photo above what happened. I have had straight hair all my life (except for that one terrible perm in Grade 13), so to suddenly have a tangle of pink and orange curls on my head made me so freaking happy - it doesn't take much, I tell ya. And yes, I bought my own curling iron this weekend.
