CUCM Grady E. Griffin, June 10, 1942 – February 26, 2005

Five years ago today my father lost his battle with cancer… and it still feels like only yesterday.

This image was one of my favorites of him growing up. It was taken the day he got his second star.

Where’s the Beach

Just a simple little outfit today with dreams of the beach. There is no better store that I have found to get beach wear other than Surf Couture and today my whole outfit is from there. They have out cute new short and some very comfy looking beach shoes… mine are just a natural color, but they come in a ton of other colors.
The hair is new out from Truth.. I loved the way the bangs framed the face and the cute high ponytail and there are these cute little whispy hairs at the nape of the neck.

Waiting for Spring

The weather is getting warmer here and the sun has been shinning, I can’t help being impatient for Spring to get here and my SL outfits are starting to reflect that. Today I am wearing fun a pink polka dot top and paired it with a great pair of rolled jeans from Naughty. Back in my young days of SL Naughty was the place to go for high quality items be it hair, skin or clothes.. that still holds for the newer things out. I donno exactly how new these pants are, I mean i got them a few months ago myself, but before that i had not seen anything new out of Naughty in a year maybe two years. I had to take a detail shot to show off the wonderful job on the rolled hem not only of the sculptie, but also the texture. These pants also come with another version with paint splatters on them. I am again wearing my Urban Bomb Unit Pornstar lo-tops. Another awesomely made items I think is a must have. There are a bunch of different textures they will fit with tons of looks. Last time I blogged them I had them looking like a pair of shoes I have in the real world, today oddly enough they are textured like a pair of shoes i have been wanting in RL for a while now.
My hair is one of the new ones out this past week from Tiny bird and I love it. Tiny bird recently revamped the hair textures and the new ones are awesome.. i am not just saying this because finally there are nice dark brown hairs either. This hair has great little details… like the bum between the headbands which also includes little fly away hairs that were too short to be caught up in the second band. The looped hair in back is very well sculpted and looks very life like. There are two bang versions of this hair to choose from.. one with and one without. I loved the bangs though. They are lovely and whispy.. just how I like them.
My glasses are also new! They are very much like my other glasses… just a bit larger and it took some hunting down to find these. I have been looking for something just like them for ages now feeling that my other glasses were looking a little dated.. i have had them for two years now. Saw these on Someone on Flickr and thankfully they were kind enough to tell me where they got them. There was still a bit of hunting for them as they are just in a side room of a larger store and the brand of the glasses didn’t show up at all in search. Their brand by the way is =RL=, but they are in the little side store of DP Yumyum.

Look of the Day 2/11/10

Just a simple outfit today and all from I was just wandering around last night and thought to see if they had anything new from when i was there last and what luck there were new things. These cute drapped back sweaters were one new item and of course I had to buy one. My black skinny jeans and aqua flats are also from but I got them while ago.
One of the next places I went on my late night (*cough*very early morning*cough*) wandering was Maitreya. I had seen a hair on a friend I wanted to check out. Well, the hair I went for didn’t look so great on me, but I found this other cute hair that I loved. There are two length options you can buy, longer or shorter.. i have the shorter of the two. I just love the back of this hair. It looks so natural with the ends all uneven and the little whispy fly away strands.
