this sunday, the mr and i took monkey on a small road trip to the next town over; there is a great 1950s diner i wanted to try that serves amazing milkshakes and delicious burgers.

there also happened to be a classic car show happening so i figured the mr would enjoy drooling over fantastic classic cars with me….not to mention, introducing monkey to rad retro style is a mission of mine.DSC_0136 as Smart Object-1

we decided to take the “long scenic route” home and we were not disappointed!  the views were amazing and it gave monkey a chance to take a bit of a nap:

when i was a kid, thunderstorms scared the living crap out of me (and by scared, i mean bawling in bed under the covers)

luckily, i have grown out of that fear and now absolutely adore them!  the bigger the better, says i.  and by that i mean, w-o-r-l-d e-n-d-i-n-g thunderboomers!

anywho, earlier this morning i was googlin’ something on the interwebs and came upon this beauty by designer richard clarkson

love everything in this photo

it was love at first sight…other than the small matter of the not so small price tag.  alas, this awesomeness will not be hanging in my living room any time soon (although you never with how cheeky life can be)…

 

 

i’m not really into the “music reactive” part of it, just gimmie the straight up thunderstorm version *swoon*

 

q – are you a lover of thunderous weather?
