It's back to work this week. It's always tough to go back after a nice break, especially after a short va-cay. (Austin was great, BTW ~ I hope to post more pictures later today.)

As soon as I got back into town, I went to Target to pick up somethings and saw this very cute skirt. 

I tried not to get it, really I did. 
"How many black skirts do I need?" I asked myself.

The answer: one more.

It's Mossimo®, and called the Black Tiered Ruffle Skirt. It's super cute on, and should be a fun skirt for Spring and Summer. It makes me feel good, and therefore uplifting. And with all of the tiered ruffles, uplifting x 20!

Also uplifting:

The music and sounds of Andrew Bird.

I saw him in concert Sunday night, and it was A M A Z I N G !!!!! 
(I wish I had a better word to describe the show. That, and a better camera.) Bird's voice is so soothing, with a melancholy mix of whimsey and wonder. He whistled, sang, played guitar, xylophone, and violin for over an hour and a half. I watched him in amazement and was inspired, because this man has got IT. He is an extremely talented musician. He's not mainstream yet, but I can imagine reading about him decades later. He is a talented artist, and I felt extremely lucky to be in his presence.

Andrew Bird is the perfect listen for mopey Mondays, like yesterday.
Check out Andrew Bird here...
You'll be glad you did.

funny you say decades later on Mr. Andrew Bird cause I saw him about ten years ago in LA with Howe Gelb and Kristin Hersh.....maybe THIS will be his decade!
