One thing about my new home that I haven't quite gotten used to is the amount of brush fires that seem to occur nearby every other week or so.  Today while driving around we shot these (on our phones) in nearby Perris:

Just thought I'd share a quick video Brett and I got right after the Super Bowl here in town, at a local sporting goods store.  I can't imagine what it looks like in New Orleans (I guess I could just turn the TV back on, but eh!)

I have recently come to terms with the fact that I have a horrible, horrible addiction to accessories.  I don't mean regular, grown up jewelry with real silver or gold and gems and whatever.  I mean silly plastic jewels and rings with gigantic parts on them.  Feather headbands and plastic barrettes.  Hats, too, recently.  I can now say that I own more than one hat!  And scarves!  With the impending Winter I've recently gotten into wearing scarves. 

However, I've also become really pretty poor lately (probably partially due to the accessories obsession, to be completely honest) so I thought I'd try my hand at some DIY projects now that I've completed my latest huge one (wedding aside...we're pretending that doesn't exist for now.)  So here are a couple for you:

DIY fringe and tube scarves
