Summer 2011: Chapter 4–Our May/June Digs and $300 Shoes

I grabbed some pictures of our current digs last night.
This is my parents tent (and their yard, naturally).  It’s a behemoth (both yard and tent).

The rolled up portion is a screened-in porch; it’s been windy here so we’re trying to protect the tent.

We have our actual mattress and box spring in here.  It’s ultra-tenting.  Ultra, I tell you.
From my parents backyard.
Sunsets at my ‘rents house are beautiful almost every night, as they live just east of Lake Michigan.

Jared and I just got back from a coffee shop where we registered for classes.  On the way home, I convinced Jared that it was essential that we stop at a thrift store.

I found this drawer for a Quarter.  I liked it so much it sat on my lap and I practically petted it the whole way home.

Jared looked over at me and said, “I’m so glad that an old drawer for a Quarter makes you happy, and not $300 pairs of shoes.”

I’m really glad too.  I’m not really a shoe girl.

Unless, of course, we’re talking about hiking boots.

  1. This post is exactly why I like you so much. Other reasons too, but between the drawer and the beautiful pictures you take and the fact that you don't care about shoes. I like all that. 🙂
