weekends were, made for fun

happy weekend everyone! yippie!

this has been a very good week, but also a very tiring week. i got it in my head sunday night that the spare bedroom needed new bedding. that led to needing a new wall color to go with the new bedding. that led to needing new furniture to go with the new wall color and, well, you get the point. so what happened is that between sunday night and thursday night, our spare bedroom over went a total transformation. luckily, i remembered to take some before pictures, so hopefully i can share the cuteness with you all soon!!

if you look closely, you can catch a glimpse of a piece of the decorating action in these shots....

'scuse the dirty mirror. i thought i had windexed it adequately, apparentment non

mall rats

its been raining all weekend, so josh and i decided to go to the mall yesterday. used a coupon and an old gift card to get this pillow case to replace the snowman one i still had out. i love the snowman, he really completes the room, but i figured snowmen usually melt by april, so it was time for him to go....

i also stopped into kiels because i've been on the hunt for a new face moisturizer. i picked one (ultimate moisturizer with spf 15, i think) and i'll try it out, but i have to say that i was a little disappointed that the whole time i was browsing, trying lotions on, etc, not a one person even talked to me, let alone asked me if i needed any help. too bad too. i mean, i was ripe for the picking. i would have tried out a whole new face regime if they'd told me it would help. oh well, their loss. (btw, any suggestions in this area would be greatly appreciated. my face is just more prone to random breakouts lately, and it always feels dry and/or red) ug.

our final productive stop of the day was at banana republic. they were having 25% off everything! josh got a bunch of cute clothes, and i restrained myself and just got a belt. stole it from the model. i love doing that.

the lowdown:
dress: jcrew
tights: spanx
jacket: S.W.O.R.D. lucca
boots: frye
bag: rebecca minkoff nikki in cloud grey

oh, and we did stop into the apple store. the debate still continues, tho at least i am starting to see josh's side about the mac book pro. too bad none of the software i had fun playing with comes standard.

i don't know why, i just think the ipad is so durn cute!

life springs enternal on a gaudy neon street

quick recap: while i was away from blogging, i: moved back to the boston area (biggest woohoo ever!), bought a house (yay!), changed jobs (eh) and ..... gained approximately 20 lbs. (uh oh). :( apparently, i'm not only a bored eater, a depressed eater and a happy eater, i'm also a stress eater. but, good news, in the last few months, i have really buckled down and lost almost all of it! in fact, i have 3 more lbs to go to get to my goal and 3 more weeks until my annual las vegas trip. coincidence, i think not.

so, i've been doing what every good addict does when they give up one addiction. i've replaced it with shopping. gah, i love it so. here are a few of the things i've picked up:

bows, and ruffles, oh my!

the OOD post you've all been waiting for!

ta da! isn't it stunning? aren't i radiant? to quote the zoe, i die.

but really, i was just trying out a bunch of different locations in the new house for self portraits, since i haven't done any since we moved. and this was my favorite locale...get ready for a lot of white door action, cause i'll be back tomorrow with something even better! :)
