4.21.11 outfit

i love spring. so even though it feels like 50 degrees out, i am going to usher in spring with my tightless-legs and skirts!

 work outfit details: shirt - from my brother-in-law, sweater - from my job, skirt - h&m, boots - payless, scarf - UO
btw...flowy skirts and windy weather do not go well together. i seriously flashed my panties a few times today. oh well.

 this is my "running-to-target-after-work" outfit.
details: jeggings - h&m, shoes - payless

big rings both from h&m. i had to snap a pic of them. they're awesome.

4.19.11 diary

 a week ago, inspired by this post and this book, i became obsessed with the idea of keeping an illustrated diary. so far, i have created 5 entries (out of 7 days) and really love creating the pages. i look forward to seeing how each page develops and what will happen to this book in later weeks.
as an ode to the process, here i am illustrating my day.
(and, yes, i look crazy. i spent my whole day saving the planet by taking care of some trees. so this isn't a fashionable pic at all.)

i know this pic makes it look like i am a lefty, but i'm not. photobooth flips all pics.

4.15.11 morning

My morning breakfast at work. That's coffee on the left and oatmeal on the right.

Yes, I'm at work this early AM. Do you want to know why? Well, I'm actually off from work tomorrow. I have a Saturday off. And I'm going to enjoy sleeping and relaxing and enjoying my day off. Like normal people do on Saturdays.

Enjoy the weekend!

4.12.11 update and inspiration

i feel like i've been going on "GO" for the past month and a half. and it's actually starting to feel like i have barely had a day off to chill, sleep and relax. even when there are "fun things" going on, it's always followed quickly with other important responsibilities. i LOVE being busy...but i would also love to sleep...and relax...and...yea, all of that good stuff.

but i can't complain much. it's better to be busy than stagnant.

on another note, i miss making art. like, a lot. so i enrolled in an online sketchbooking course and have bought myself some books to get inspired. i am hoping to get back into art as the weather gets a lot nicer. i am also trying to convince some friends of mine to start a weekly art group so that i feel responsible to do art with folks. that would be sweet.

speaking of getting back in gear, here's some inspiration lately around the interwebs:

 solange's whole style lately is on point. period.
 hello. i would love to make and wear all of these bracelets.
yes, i want these glasses. like, for real.

that's all, folks!

4.5.11 love

Do you see that medal!?!?!

Yesterday marked my second half marathon. Ever in life. Last year's I was way more prepared for but this year...not so much. I did a run/walk of it and completed it in less than 3 hours. Huge accomplishment considering I thought it would take me 4 or I would end up on the side of the course completely exhausted.

Super shout out to my girl, Jessie, who did it with me. She was completely prepared for it and probably could have completed it in 2 hours. She's a wonderful friend for run/walking with me.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
