I started off my week with no solid plans. I thought I’d spend most of it sitting at my desk, pacing myself through client work and watching Dr. Phil. And now, it’s Friday and I’ve been going nonstop, doing agency work (and barely home). It’s funny how that happens but I guess it should be expected the week after returning home from a relaxing vacation!
I have some awesome things that I really wanted to share with you but because of my schedule, they will have to wait until next week. First of all, I found the most perfect red dress in a store window, gave them my information and bought it off the mannequin. Secondly, the floors of my living and dining rooms are now finished. The living room floor is pure black; it’s got a total haunted mansion vibe (!!) The dining room is the exact opposite, basking in solid white. The rooms are coming together fast and I will share them with you shortly.
Always keep the necessities close by; a bag the size of a small child, ridiculous (yet still walkable) platforms and a coffee for those mid-afternoon lulls.
Bring home small yet practical souvenirs from your travels that don’t sit on a shelf somewhere, collecting dust. I bought this Mickey ears keychain for my bag because it’s rubber (and therefore, unbreakable). Have I mentioned how much I miss Disney World? Have I?! I really, truly do. Sadness!
People around me are getting the swine flu. In a way, it makes me not want to leave the house. But, there are bills to be paid (and shoes to be bought). Perhaps a black satin surgical mask would be the perfect new accessory? Michael was such a trend setter; he was wearing them fifteen years before they were cool.
For the last year, I took a serious break from red. It ruled my world for ten years straight and I needed something softer and less jarring. I started surrounding myself with more grays and whites. But, I’m starting to notice steady amounts of red creeping into my life once again….
Isn’t my new mug amazing? I found it at the Urban Outfitters in Tampa for a measly two dollars. Tall, dark and bitter? How about short, light and sweet?
I was visiting my friend Tyler this week when I noticed this x-ray above his desk. That really was his arm. I’ve never broken any bones…have you?
Moments like this are why I ALWAYS carry a camera. My brother and I were sitting in traffic downtown and I spotted this Mercedes covered in metal stickers. I wish I could have gotten a better photo but all I can say is WOW. I am speechless. It’s sort of like the grandkids inherited grandpa & grandma’s Mercedes and customized it!
Your turn! How was your week?
