Here is what every Monday needs.
Especially the Monday after a holiday weekend when NO ONE wants it to actually be Monday.
These are the cure.
Ok well, these and maybe a nice nap too. That would be really nice, but that’s just so not going to happen.
But you gotta eat, so why not have a little Monday fun? It just makes sense.
So let’s talk about my new-found addiction to Etsy. It’s insane and also going to make me completely broke, BUT Etsy has some of the cutest stuff and since I live in a place that has zero shopping, I am an online girl all the way. But Etsy? Well, it is a love/hate relationship. I love it because I can find some of the coolest stuff, but I hate it because it is so crazy expensive… sometimes shipping costs more than the item being bought, and it takes weeks to actually get to me.
It would seem there are more cons than pros, but for some reason I keep circling back… and paying. UGH.
I have been in desperate need of new dishes and things to shoot with.
The thing is, I get really bored using the same things in photos over and over, so I have had fun looking for new stuff to shoot with.
I even had my dad out looking all weekend. He went to probably a dozen weirdo antique stores (and the Denver Flea Market) from here to Denver and had almost zero luck. I feel bad cause the guy spent his weekend off of work searching high and low for me, and then the whole two days kind of ended up being a bust.
My mom and Asher went too, actually my brother Creighton even went one of the days, but apparently my dad led the charge. I heard my mom was actually laying outside one of the stores sleeping in the sun while my dad combed through the junk.
So yeah, how good of a dad do I have?
Granted, I think he was a little bored without his “boys” here right now (they’re in Aspen at some training thing for Red Bull riders, or something like that), so his weekend was open, but still no one can beat him. He even searches ebay for boards for me to shoot on. I mean, he’s the best. No complaints here.
He didn’t come back completely empty handed though, he did bring back that old light blue cast iron pot you see. It’s from somewhere around 1900 and totally beat up, I am loving it.
New favorite thing.
Along with Margarita Tostadas on a Monday of course.
That’s obvious though.
Oh and that salsa? Well guys, I just want you to know I am on a crazy salsa kick right now. Meaning I have made one every other day and they are all ones you will be seeing. Almost all of them contain some kind of tropical fruit. Salsa without fruit is now a foreign concept to me.
As are boring Mondays, so not cool. So go on now, tostada them up!
