nice girls can play video games too.

 mario tee: Rue21 / maxi skirt: Belk / necklace: c/o Agape Love Designs / tildes wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes / red heart ring: f21 / bracelet: c/o Poshlocket 

ever since i was introduced to the very first Nintendo when i was a wee child, i have always been obsessed with Mario and his world. there was this one time while mom and dad were out of the house, Kristine and i got so wrapped up in playing N64's super mario that we forgot to clean the house and feed our baby sister, so yeaaah, we got grounded from the N64 for a little while. it was summer vacation, so there was no worse time for that mistake. then we got put on a 2 hour limit a day help wean us off of our addiction. 2 hours might seem a lot to you, but at that time, that seemed like nothing.  so when my future sons (or daughters) whine about how i don't understand the desperate need to beat  Halo 15, i'll tell them oh, honey, i understand all right. more than you know!

oh, and this video clip where Josh Hutcherson sings the Mario theme song, hilariously cute. 
i think i need it as a ringtone. like now.

much love.
{happy thursday, friend.}

  5. I remember te same time limit with video games. I hated my parents for doing that - but I am sure it was better for me than sitting in my basement all day playing Super Mario Bros 3!

    Love your shoes...I almost just bought those same ones. :)

  17. We are big gamers. The girls are into Mario Party right now and we have to limit how long they play. They'd happily play forever! (Can't say I blame them...I have my own favorites!)
