Summer, get here soon, please...

Wow, I can't believe we havn't updated since January. *(My sincere apologies)* I realize I (Brandi) am no good at blogging. I can barely keep up with what day it is. I know I can speak for Callie and myself when I say that things have been quite hectic. We are both teachers and spring is such a busy time in the schools with testing, parent meetings, paperwork, projects, field trips, and cramming in a little time to actually teach :). The end of school is drawing near and I am so flippin' excited about a summer chock full of making stuff! Callie and I will also be taking our annual beach trip with the college buddies in July. Wahoo! That trip last year is when Polka Dot Pancake sprang to life.

I love summer becuase I can romp around in tank tops and flip flops. Summer is also a perfect time to rock some fun, attention grabbing jewelry. Yay! I've got several fashion/accesory trends I can't wait to try this summer...

*Right now I'm really into water shades like aqua, turquoise, and beautiful blues. It seems like all my latest clothing purchases are in these hues. I love jewelry made out of turqoise. I really want a chunky turqoise necklace with some coral colors mixed in.

*I'm telling you what, you can't have enough pairs of linen pants. They are comfy as all get out and they look so effortlessly chic. I've picked up pairs recently at Target and Old Navy.

*I want to be brave and try the headband trend. Callie, who can pretty much pull off anything, got a fun headband with a feather on it. I want one with a flower on it.

*I picked up a huge Zebra purse the other day at ROSS. I love anything animal print. I will surely be rocking my zebra print purse this summer.

I hope you are all as excited about summer as I am! I am getting excited just thinking (and blogging) about it!
Love and syrup,
Bran
