Mont-peel-yer

February 12, 2012

Today William (AKA Liam) and I took a little trip to the smallest capital city in all of the US. Montpelier. I’m a phonetic reader and also a newbie to the great state of Vermont, so every other time I try to pronounce my new capital’s name I totally butcher it. I’m pretty sure the locals say it “Mont-peel-yer”.

I slept in and took my sweet time getting ready this morning. I got new hair in the mail the other day, but I’m not sure if I dig it yet. It’s growing on me. (not literally lol)

That’s a new skirt too! After I took a million unnecessary pictures of myself, (I can’t help it my new camera is awesome!!1) we were off to find food and adventure!

We had a later lunch at this great little restaurant called Kismet. I had the pork hash, and Liam got the breakfast burrito. The food was SO GOOD and reasonably priced, especially for the quality of ingredients. Plus my hash had beets in it! I LOVE beets!! So good!

The capital building is soooo pretty! The dome is covered in real gold leaf! I kind froze my butt off taking these pics but my giant winter coat was totally crampin’ my style. Everyone who drove by had to rubber neck the crazy girl with giant glasses jumping in front of a government building. Ya. Don’t care!

After that we stopped at a few vintage/thrift stores. I saw some okay stuff, but alas, nothing fit me 🙁

Liam took this picture of himself on our way to seek out chocolate. He thinks he’s so funny.

Chocolate we did find! Apparently this little chocolate shop only makes these tasty treats one time a year, so the woman gave us 3 for 2 since today was the last day they could be sold. They were amazing! Don’t they look it?!

We always take the long way home when we can and explore new back roads and side streets. But we didn’t go too far out of our way since I can’t bear to be away from this one for too long…

Guh she’s so cute. This dog is my soul.

Tomorrow Liam and I plan to get some snowboarding in before hunkering down and getting ready for the upcoming week. I need to do laundry desperately. What else is new.

I also need to work on my Pastille dress for the sew-a-long! The end of the month is creepin up fast!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!!
