last night my sister stumbled upon this photo gallery in the telegraph, and immediately knew who she had to tell. on wednesday a new world record was set: 343 hot air balloons in the sky! this is the sort of news that makes my heart beat a little faster.  can you imagine being present for something like this?  I'M GONNA.  one day, i'm going to the lorraine mondial air balloon festival in france.  mark my words!  {does everyone in france go to this and stand around yawning?  is it totally not a big deal?  maybe i'm a silly american, as cute as it'd be if a french girl said "one day i'm going to lollapalooza!" but why would she say that?}  anyway, i can't pinpoint where this hot air balloon fanaticism of mine started, but it's evidenced here and here, and by this recent purchase that was made in a moment of passion.  i love them and i've yet to be in one.  of all the cliche ways to be proposed to, this is one i can get down (up?) with.  just sayin'.

made it happen!  and now back to my regularly scheduled programming of summer napping.  (kidding.  there's a lot going on around these parts, but i'm keeping my head above water and making sure to chime in with ice cream imagery whenever possible.)  and this- this is for you.

yeah girl

coming to you from a 100+ heat index, clad in micro shorts, with the midi tune of the ice cream truck in the distance (NO, i did not bolt outside at the sound of its approach, thankyouverymuch).  i realize the impropriety of posting this much wool at a time like this, but don't we need to just look at it?  i've been unusually sleepy the past few days, laid up in bed with the overhead fan whirring and ally mcbeal streaming on my laptop (do we have her to blame for the micro-ness of these shorts?).  i decided to get adventurous and revisit some favorite designers' fall/winter '11 collections, to daydream about those days when we'll crunch through fallen leaves, smell rich people's fireplaces churning, and write about apple cider and pumpkins for two months straight.  not long now!  it's no secret that i love lauren moffatt, and i'll continue to fawn over her lookbooks here until she starts making ugly stuff or i stop blogging (the latter of which will surely come first).

i scream

it is so hot outside.  i love the heat, so i'm not complaining, but i'm also sitting inside a heavily air conditioned house at the moment.  you probably noticed ice cream making an appearance in more than one new york photo, and there was even more ice cream eating that went undocumented.  i've just got ice cream cones on the brain lately.  three of the pins above are on my apartment wishlist, and i fully intend to take a little trip to doumar's in norfolk this weekend (where the waffle cone was invented!).  beat the heat, ya'll.
