Saturday Morning Extra

This morning I was reading through my posts from the past couple of weeks and thought I'd share with you some more of what happened this week through more pictures and conversations I had after the posts were written. A behind the scenes look if you will.

First, remember where I talked about Summer in Maine? I didn't show the hot outfit I wore while we were on the lobster boat. Check me out here with my friends/co-workers, Tyler and Katie, ready to catch some lobster!

As hot as I looked, I did absolutely no work. I ran and hid when they took out the bait bags because the seagulls would come flying over to get the scraps. I'm not really much of a manual labor kind of gal. I also don't really appreciate getting fish guts and other disgusting things on me. Even if I'm wearing an apron.

Also seen while walking around Portland:

Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife. Apparently tube theft is a huge problem here. Make sure you lock up your tubes!

Later in the week, I was thinking of doing an outfit post, but never really got around to it. So here you go!

cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft, dress: Rainbow, shoes: Timberland
Remember my post about being the oldest in my family? After my sister read it, she called me because she had no recollection of the purple horse that I stole from her after one of her birthday parties. Well, folks, here is the amazing purple horse in question, Lady Lovely Locks' Horse, Silkymane:

I know you're jealous. via
Once I reminded her which toy it was, she said "Ohhhhh I never knew that was mine!!!" which speaks to my incredible negotiation skills. You will give me what I want and never even remember it was yours to begin with.

Well, there you have it. The Saturday Morning Extra. The behind the scenes look at Empirically Erin. Happy weekend everyone!

Your 'Summer in Maine' post inspired me to eat lobster for the second time in my life yesterday. I've lived in Maine my whole life and after reading your blog decided to do some MAINE things, because I really do love it. Now I just need to get into that hot outfit and really experience Maine. haha. Thats so funny about the purple horse!
