Feed the Birds...

If you aren't interested in an outfit post, I am more than happy to write several paragraphs about the song of the same title as this post. Mary Poppins was my favorite movie growing up and the Sherman Brothers are without a doubt my favorite composers. And while just about every song in the movie is considered a Disney classic, Feed the Birds is high on my list because, according to Richard Sherman, it was Walt's favorite song and he requested it often. It's sweet and a little melancholy and just beautiful and makes me nostalgic every time I hear it (which is often, considering my Pandora is set to my Disney station most of the time.) 

Anyway... You know me and my compulsive need to overthink even the most trivial of decisions and my outfit for the first day of school was no exception. (I remember being very stressed by this as a child. Which jumper? Which socks?) So, I narrowed it down to a couple of options and with a little prodding (thanks, Grace!) I went with the bird outfit. Because... why not?

One day I'll learn to take pictures in the morning before the rigors of the school day have worked their black magic and I look as if I own neither an iron nor a single anti-frizz product.

My students already know think I'm crazy... I might as well prove them right by being the "bird lady." Plus, I really do love this shirt. I can't wait to wear it with a cardigan and boots. (Bring on the fall... and no, I am never content with the season in which I am currently present.)

To recap.... I kind of like birds, both in song and on my shirt. However, in real life they terrify me and I may or may not have made a big fool of myself last time I was at the beach, accidentally dropped a dill pickle chip, and freaked out as a huge flock of seagulls converged on my bag like a pack of rabid vultures. It was like Alfred Hitchcock was directing Finding Nemo. Scary stuff.

And so ends the most random of posts ever. (I won't end by saying organized thoughts are for the birds, because that would be lame.)

P.S. I couldn't help but laugh when I compared these pictures... although Emily is far cuter!

I wonder where she gets it? =)
