Summertime and the living is easy

Today is my Friday and I am so happy to have 5 whole days to myself.  If only I had a car :)  One week has come and gone and I managed to not lose my mind.  The last time I was without my own car was 25 years ago.
I have owned the following in this order a; 1959 VW ragtop bug (wish I still had her), a 1978 Chevy Monte Carlo (tricked out cholita style) , a 1996 Ford Escort (pile of crap), a 1997 Honda Civic, and last and my most favored a  2007 Honda Civic SI.  As you can see I have had a few.  My new MINI Cooper I'm sure will be a very fun car to own.  Maybe even as fun as this vintage pink dress I found at the Red Light Clothing Exchange for $16.  I find the best dresses there!
Some more pink and yellow.
 The sun before it burns.
A sparkly K bracelet because I'm Krista:)
This weekend is Cristi from Kiss Me Kitty's Birthday and I can't wait to help her celebrate!  Last year for the 4th I spent a bunch of cash on fireworks and it wasn't really worth it, so none for me this year I'll just watch from a far.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far!

You look great! Love the jewelry. I'vehad a quite a few cars also. I am a truck girl at heart. I think fireworks are better left to the pros. That way you save time and money. Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous summer frock! It's a lovely old summer so far.
I've had a few knackered old dogs of cars. I had a Ford Escort as well and what a pile of crap that was...the back window fell in on the way down the motorway!!..I only like old cars and I'd have a Mini too. We have two Chevy trucks ready to do up and one day I'll have a pink pick up!
Have a fab weekend when it arrives.

You are a vision in pink! I want to feel that sun on my skin - it's promised for the weekend and I cannot wait! That dress is a beauty and the kittens in cones pendant is so mad and crazy and adorable.
I can't wait to see your new wheels. Jon's had some mad ones in his time - numerous Beetles, two Variants, a million buses, a Truimph Herald convertible, a Morris Minor and the bloody awful gold Sierra he was driving when he met me - the neighbours were convinced he was my dealer when he came to call!
Wish Cristi a very happy birthday from me. Fireworks are pretty but you may as well set fire to your cash!
Speak next week! Love ya! xxxxx

Love the laziness quote :D

Great quote! I'd love to go to the sea and relax, but the girls are still recovering from the chickenpox and they can't bask in the sun! I have a lot of work to finish either, so my laziness is calling but it has to wait! The new dress is perfect, the daisies, the colours, the frills, I adore it with the necklace! I can't wait to see you in the new car! I never own a car, I had my car licence only few years ago..probabily if I'll buy a car I'll be more motivated to drive! Obviously I dream to drive a Mini too!
I love you more than kitties in cones!! xxxxxxxx

I'd wear that dress and I'd wear it with black sneakers.

Hope Christi has a great birthday. Can't wait to see pics.

No fireworks or us either but I think I still might send my husband out for gin and sparklers...

Oh gawwwwwwwwd your new dress is amazing!!!! I adore the frill and it looks spectacular with your headband, necklace and groovy Chucks. Aaaaaaaah a fellow car-mad wench! I learned to drive in a Beetle (or Bug in the USA) and it set me up for a life-long love affair with driving. I can't wait to see your new Mini!!!!!!! I hope Christi has an amazing birthday, I'm sure she will with you there to spice up celebrations :) xoxoxooxoxoxox

Such a pretty new dress, and so cheap too. You look such a glorious vision in pink in the sun. The arrival of your new car will be fantastic, I hate ever being without a car too. Have a great weekend xxx

I love your new dress, especially with your kitty cone pendant! Being carless is not a joy but you are going to love your new mini cooper so much. Do you have fuzzy dice?
