I am both smothered and covered with work this week. So many post ideas floating in my head and no time to execute. Soon I hope! Things to look forward too - cute new (and new to me) shops have arrived in Tucson - pics/websites to view. Halloween and Day of the Dead costumes are in progress - I promise pics.
This burrito is both smothered and covered - sauce and cheese. Yum.
She treated us like princesses when we were not feeling well.
She pretty much spoiled us in the best ways possible.
Well, she arrived back in New Mexico today after a week long trip to Texas. I guess she thought my sister (who is a very responsible person) might forget to pick her up at the airport. Check out this sign my mom hung on my sister's fridge to remind her of the flight time. Makes me giggle.
It is Homecoming at University of Arizona this weekend. I wish that you two (obviously my favorite UA graduates!) were coming in town! In honor of homecoming (and pay day, and 25% off at the UA bookstore today) I treated myself to this retro U of A shirt. It is comfy and I love this logo.
Guess what treat I recently received in the mail? This lucky girl got a bunch of Danish design magazines from a friend (thanks Shannon!) who was on a work trip in Copenhagen. Love that she grabbed these for me. I can't read a lick of the text, but who cares when the pictures are so darn pretty. I cannot wait to drool over these. Hotness. For sure.
If you are my friend, you know that I say "Yay" for just about everything. It is my favorite word. I have a good friend where our entire conversations are saying "Yay" back and forth to each other. I got an invite for a social gathering that made me smile. The title of the event is "Yay" and described like this:
YAY!I: come generate random joy and happiness feelings! We'll be hanging out in the shade by the side of the street, yaying strangers as they pass, with the intention of making them feel good. Maybe they will join us. YAY! Bring a chair. If you bring champagne, remember it's not legal on the street so be discreet. Come for the whole time, or just drop by. ____________________________________________________________________________
I love cats and cat videos but I try to keep my posting of kitties to a minimum as I cannot be the crazy cat lady...but here is my latest favorite video. Love the black and white and the tormented cat.
I am over the moon! Remember my first blog post ever where I gushed about Liz Demos & how much of an inspiration she was to me during my time in Savannah? Well, Design*Sponge has also figured out what an amazing person Liz is & has posted a huge feature on their blog all about this incredible lady. I am so very happy for Liz and hope this brings many wonderful opportunities her way. Yay!
My latest craft project was inspired by our Smokey the Bear obsession every year at the Cabin. Thanks to our friend Ryan we even have Smokey the bear flannel sheets in a bedroom at the cabin. (I did not know about the following article that my sister told me about in this book titled - "Smokey Bear is a White Racist Pig" when I made my craft. I still love Smokey's look, but will have to read this book to learn more about his upsetting past)
