BRUNCH WITH BLAKE


on tuesday morning blake had a free period from school and i had promised him a lunch date. so we loaded up my plus-one and drove him to panera. ("but can't we just go to denny's?") i had a hot herbal tea, blake had a bacon egg and cheese on ciabatta, and henny had an orange scone. i kept calling it lunch and blake kept correcting me. "no, it's brunch." and now you know.




i'm telling you, all you single girls out there, my brother is a catch with a capital k.  

and now, this is what i wore to brunch (this is a fascinating post).


i was telling blake on the way to lunch brunch, "i think this cardigan may have been cuter at the store," and blake said, "so you wore it with red pants. obviously."

the nuances of red pants are lost on sixteen-year-old boys, is all i can gather from that.

(the cardigan is now known around these parts as the ferris bueller cardigan. and thus it was spoken.)

huck fell asleep in the car on the way home. and then after he woke up and asked to nurse, he fell back asleep on me. for two hours! i got nothing done.


and now you know.

  6. i had a bad experience with red jeans in 5th grade. Namely, all my friends dumped me at the same time and told me it was because of my red jeans. I wore them "too much." Not gonna be hoppin' on the red jean train again soon -- I wanna keep my friends this go round.

  8. I need that Ferris Bueller sweater! When I was little and people asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say "Ferris Bueller".

  15. please oh please will you go to toast in southeast portland before you head back east? it is the tiny, adorable home of life-changing brunch. when i moved to new york, i was depressed every weekend for two months because i missed it so! the only reason i'm over it now is that i booked a ticket for mid-may, & now i'm counting down instead of crying.

  16. I only have coral pants but am thinking a red pair would be so useful and a green pair--actually loads of colours would be useful.

    And I like the cardigan nearly as much as I love the last photo--heis so cute!

  18. I don't have any full on pants of different colors, just the plain old boring colors (black, khaki, grey, etc.) but I do have a pair of camo skinny pants that I love. And capris...forget about it, I have an affinity for buying them in every color imagined.
