Bits of home: the walls

There are some homes that look perfect. That have everything put away perfectly and the artwork coordinated with the wall colour.
That is not my house. I want memories covering the walls so that any direction that I look I can see the story of the people and places that I love.

Here's what my walls look like (most are  work in progress):

Reminder to make every day awesome

Lately: Vegas

Oh hey there.

So two ladyfriends and I went to Vegas. I had never been before and thought I knew what to expect.
Turns out...
I'm old!
We really wanted to go out dancing but by the end of the day with the heat, and the people, and the sounds, and the lights, and the walking, and the large slushy beverages, and the stimulation overload.. I just had to have a small lie down.

I, of course, was wearing my FitBit and on the Saturday we walked 38,988 steps. And 78 floors, Which is 27.62 km. No wonder I was knackered!

High Roller reflection in the window of The Flamingo

Almost like the real thing

For the first time in about 7 months... I felt warm

I made them take a lot of selfies

These booty shorts were only $999 at the Kate Spade outlet. Also, they were really, really heavy

So pretty. But also so fake...

Great Responsibility

Laziness and willing spring to come has got the best of me.

may 2014

Lately I much prefer to sleep an extra half an hour than take photos of my admittedly cute clothes.

dress: made in Vietnam
leggings: Lulu Lemon
scarf: Ricki's
boots: ? from a shoe party

Today I'm thankful for glasses. I love being able to see. We are so very lucky!
