For some odd reason I felt like Pollyanna in this outfit today (though I'm sure Pollyanna never wore green socks). Perhaps it was the puffy shirt. Nonetheless, I was reminded of my dreaded bus ride to school in 6th grade. Way back then, somehow we had to sit three kids to a seat because the route was overcrowded. I can't imagine that ever being allowed to happen now. Can we say, "lawsuit"? Anyhow I was assigned to a seat with an 8th grade boy who was your typical meathead jock, and a snooty 6th grade girl who thought she was the bees knees. On a daily basis they would make fun of me and my nerdy self by telling me that I had to pay them if I wanted to sit in the seat with them, laughing relentlessly. I was too shy to stand up for myself or say anything mean or witty back so I would purposely miss the bus so my mom had to take me to school. day I actually had the cojones to tell the bus driver what was going on and (yay!!!) she moved my seat and reprimanded them. Haha. As I was walking to my new seat the 8th grade boy said aloud, "that's Pollyanna over there". Funny, I guess I didn't think it was much of an insult. I turned around, smiled and said, "So? I like Pollyanna".

Here's to an excessively cheerful and optimistic Monday darlings!

  9. You truly are a pollyanna! I love these photos so much. You look stunning in bright colors. I love this story about the bus. Not for the fact that you got made fun of me (I dont like that at all!..jerks!) but the fact that you said that to that boy. He had no idea that what he said to you was a huge compliment. You are a doll and so so beautiful. xoxo
