i feel like long titles look coolio with this layout but, in reality, i think "american boy" would cover this title just fine...

Oh, hey there friends! How are you?! I've got some exciting news - pictures from the park! OMGYAY! (I'm trying to get y'all excited as you'll likely be seeing this park a lot. My mum had this AWESOME idea that since we allegedly have "so much free time on our hands" (OKAY FINE WE KIND OF DO) that we walk the dog for her every evening! Wow! Yay! Fun!)

So, it's kind of a pain. But produces fun pictures. I guess. Played on the swings and playground because a) hey, it's fun and b) it matched my outfit! (wow, I sound like an idiot.) But really, it's very childhood reminiscence-y.

I have really fond memories of the park (oh, look at us, all old and reminiscing our youth!). So many fun games. Like fish and shark. Basically we (being the children) were the "fish", while my dad was the "shark" (HAPPY FATHERS DAY!). Basically we won every time. Hehe. No, we didn't change the rules so the only option was us winning, pssssh...

Not quite a shark nor a fish (ha-ha, good transition? Er...), here's my dog. As you can see by the intense running photos, it was a pretty physically demanding day at the park. But, hey, when you're beast like me, the running is the equivalent to, like, sleeping. ....er....

RUN GURL RUN. Hey, now, I didn't get nominated for most improved athlete for nothing! (Bahahhaa. I'm very proud of this athletic-related accomplishment. I'm an ATHLETE! Look at me! I'm a big shot! I'm, like, um, insert big sport's name here.)

The combination of the skirt and blouse reminds me of America. Hence the kind-of title. But, just for kicks, Go Canada! If you were in FIFA, I would cheer for you!* But you're not! But I live in ya, so you still rock! Yay!
*I probably wouldn't watch ya, but I'd be cheering in spirit

Not much to say. Hope you're having an awesome summer. From me, and my friends... ;)

Oh, P.S., I revived my Chictopia and Lookbook. Posting old looks. Go on and look at 'em, it'll be reminiscing and you'll sigh and maybe hold your heart and longingly stare at the photos (to come) and smile as you remember the good ole memories and um anyways... Oh and you'll hype and comment and whatever it is you're supposed to do to make me think I'm a big deal. Yay!

i'm a french girl and i don't have a very good language so if you understand that's great .

I love your look and your blog , of course BECAUSE YOU ARE JUST AMAZING !
Bye , and please don't forget to see my blog and tell me what do you think about :)

Thank's a lot , Xoxo Salt .

kyki said...

Aw. Thanks for the comment! :) You're too kind. (And your grammar is generally pretty awesome, so bonus points for you! Tee hee.)

Haha. If I blogged my playlist minus country it would be over four thousand songs long (I'm download obsessed)! But I'll definitely post a snippet in the near future. :)

Woah. I adore your intense hatred for the Biebster. He's compeltely revolting, I know. And I agree, it'd be nice to see some Canadian stars get "big" and NOT suck (nice try Avril Lavigne, Shania Twain, and JB). Although, I do have to admit, I have a soft spot for Hedley and Marianas Trench.

Ps. Update more often! I heart your random awesomeness. <3
