my first "friday fancies"

Today, I'm trying this Friday Fancies "linking up" thing with
She asked bloggers to put together an outfit mixing and matching prints.
 Here's what I came up with:


this outfit could be switched up with 
a thin black belt
a pair of black boots
and some fun black tights

49er Faithful

I was born and raised a San Francisco 49ers fan 
by two San Francisco born parents.

My mom was/is a big fan 
(probably more so than my dad because he was more familiar with "real football", you know, soccer)
she even got into it once with some Miami Dolphin fans the day of the 1985 Super Bowl
they were driving
she was not
distracted, they got into a fender bender

that is why as a baby she would dress me like this
or it may be because my parents had hoped for a boy.

if you haven't been following the NFL
the 49ers are currently 2nd in the league
with a record of
and it looks like they're headed for the Playoffs.

makes me wish I was in California just so I could go to a game.

sunny November

 the news forecast said that the weekend would be overcast and rainy
but today I woke up to a beautiful, sunny, warm day.

I can see about 15 people on the beach
enjoying the weather

playing volleyball
and swimming.

I am so tempted to join them.

The day I was supposed to return the rental car
I decided to keep it to take a day trip with Koko
to the beach of Elafonissi in southern Crete.

Neither of us had been before.

Along the road, we stopped at an impressive ancient Greek Orthodox Church built inside a cave.
I had visited it before, but Koko had not. 

Elafonissi was beautiful
It was a little difficult to find parking because there were so many tourists
From a distance, they looked like tiny ants along the shore

The water was a beautiful clear blue
the sand white with specks of pink shell pieces.
It was incredibly warm and shallow;
we were able to walk straight across without the water even reaching our ankles.

On the way back
we stopped at the Monastery of Chrysoskalitissa.

It was a lovely way to spend a lovely day with a lovely man.
