Out of town: Poconos Style! Pt. 2




Tonight I bring you the 2nd half of my weekend getaway...second half being when I dressed like a Soccer-Mom with 2 kids spending the day at an amusement park.  Seriously!  I looked as if we were equipped for walking all over Six Flags (over St. Louis of course, because this is the one I grew up going to).  Scratch that--can I change my amusement park to Opryland, oh wait no its closed...Pretend I chose Dollywood to get my point across.  Yeah-Dollywood sounds about right.

Anyway, we were not at an amusement park, and I am not a soccer mom, I just happened to opt for a very practical/appropriate outfit for a vacation day spent doing vacation-y things.

Like....GOING TO BUSHKILL FALLS!

And sometimes an avid wearer of heels needs to put on a pair of kicks in order to enjoy the great-outdoors.  And shorts and a t-shirt too!

My Outdoor Attire includes:
*White tshirt, Uniqlo
*Khaki shorts, Gap Outlet
*White tennis shoes, KEDS
*Printed Scarf, Old Navy
*Silver vintage owl, thrifted while in the Poconos
*Beige bag, Makowsky
*Black sunglasses, Kensie

Oh nature....Oh FRESH AIR!

Yeah...a bit too much fresh air.  While I thought the waterfall was great and all, there just happened to be a Fireworks Superstore right smack dab next to our hotel that was calling us back home.  We had to bust outta the vacation sightseeing thing and get back to the Buy-One-Get-One-Free firecracker spectacular!

Heck yeah!  We went the super explosive route...
bought us some BLACK SNAKES!

Somehow I think my hairstyle, the lighter, and the igniting of fireworks in pure daylight in a public space makes me look all the more white trash.  We're in the Poconos for goodness sakes...and I still didn't fit in :(

And is it wrong of me to think that this looks like a flaming charred terd?

Oh the Poconos...what a weekend getaway it was.  I think I'll go back.
For anyone else in the North Eastern seaboard, and/or the Ohio/Pennsylvania area, I would recommend a weekend excursion to this outdoor mountainous region.  The thrifting and flea markets alone were enough to make my trip a success...but throw in the motel bar w/$2 beers, the buy one get one free fireworks, and this scary doll I saw in a salon window...and I just had a darn successful vacation--soccer mom style and all!

By the way, I'm pretty certain the salon was called Bo-Tangles.  Awesome!

LOL the flaming turd. I don't think you look like a soccer mom, you look awesome! I think I would wear something like that on vacation. :)

I love all the pics, and that doll is creepy.

Well well well, you may just have to come find out for yourself if our apartment oozes with style! Haha.

I'm glad that song is stuck in your head. It's a damn good one. Really all versions of it are great.

Also- I doubt you saw this because it was during your hiatus, but I mentioned you in an interview featured on another blog!!

Oh Lord are you funny! I was cracking up when you mentioned your soccer mom outfit. My cousin (the quintessential soccer mom) dresses just like that...only daily. And yeah, the black snake does look like a burning turd. Too funny. I can't believe those are illegal in VA. I would love to play with those!
