rainy days

It's been pouring down rain for the past several days here in Southern California. I've had the same vintage floral umbrella for years, which I found at one of my favorite thrift stores that no longer exists. I love my umbrella, but it has seen better days. It's kind of bent on one side and not very big and, therefore, not completely effective at keeping me dry. So, I decided to go on a search for a new umbrella that was both cute and functional. I pretty much hit the mother lode with umbrellas.net.

Bicycles, polka dots, florals, and stripes - definitely my kind of website! Living in Southern California, though, it's hard for me to justify spending nearly $40 on something that I'm only going to use a few times a year. I decided to browse trusty Target.com for some more affordable options and stumbled upon these:

Bubble umbrellas! Maybe not as overtly adorable as an umbrella with bicycles on it, but still pretty nice. Plus, they're sturdy and they get the job done. I just threw the Batman umbrella in there as a joke. Well, maybe I'm a little serious about it...
