"Hey, what are you doing up here?"

by: Bethany

  Accordion to Kellie was one of the first blogs we found after we started our own, and we have aways loved the tulle skirts she makes.
   For Becca's graduation present from me, I bought her one, and another for myself. We were so excited as we waited for them to come in the mail.

  Then they came. 

We opened the package and tried the skirts on, loving the fun colors.
As we stood in front of the mirror, our enthusiasm diminished:

"Wow, these are really fluffy. What do we wear them with?"
"I don't know. Kellie's outfit's always look so cute, but I just feel...poofy."

We didn't want to look like five year olds in tutus, but each top we tried to pair with the puffy skirts didn't seem to work in quite the way we hoped.

So we set them aside for a while, hoping we'd figure how to wear them.

This week, we picked up some new (to us) tops at Goodwill, and we tried out the tulle skirts again. 

After wearing our new outfits to church, Becca and I drove out to a favorite place to take some pictures.

As we climbed back in the truck and headed off, a guy in an ATV pulled along side us. We said a polite hello, thinking he would pass us and be on his way, but he stopped.

"Hey, what are you doing up here?" he asked, eyes narrowed in suspicion.

"Umm, we're just taking pictures. It's a nice day and there's pretty scenery."

"Taking pictures?"

(Couldn't he see how beautiful we looked? Becca was half tempted to snap a picture of him at that moment.)

"Like, senior pictures?"

"No... we have a blog that we're taking them for..."

"Ok." He pulled away slowly, still giving us a strange look. 

He must have lived at a nearby farm and saw us up on the hill. What did he think we were doing up there? Rustling his cows, trampling his crops, or snatching his asparagus in our tulle skirts?

It was really weird, and as we hurried on our way, we talked about all the different ways we could have responded to him.

We just watched the old movie, "You Can't Take It With You" last night (by the way, a most adorable movie. It's like "Meet the Robinsons" meets "Up" meets "It's a Wonderful Life."), so our first thought was we should have responded like this... 


                                                              ...and floored it. 

That guy would know better than to mess with blogger girls again. :)

P.S. We are headed off on a road trip the beginning of July, so we will be taking a break from posting. We'll have some fun posts in couple of weeks!

  6. Hi girls!

    I know I haven't commented on your site in a while, but I must say, your outfits are DARLING!!! You couldn't have done a better tule skirt photo shoot either! We were asked to model Kellie's skirts a while back around the chilly Christmas season, and I remember putting them on and thinking the exact same thing, "It didn't look that poofy in the picture!" But all three of us managed to find the right top to go with the skirt.

    I really love the colors you two picked out! They match your personality's perfectly. :)

    Much love,

    The eldest sister & singer

    1. Thank you!

      Oh yes, your outfits with the tulle skirts were lovely! It definitely is a surprise to see them in person, but they are really pretty!

      It was hard for me to settle on which color to get, either jade or plum, but I'm quite happy with my final choice.

  7. WAAAA!! Oh, I love that :) You two girls are the best (and very gorgeous in your tulle skirts, I might add!)! Oh, and you have convinced me that I need to see "You Can't Take it With You" lol ;) Jimmy Stuart is the best.


  8. Amazing pictures!!! You girls look lovely!!!!
