Remember that leak I was telling you about? It multiplied. We are now blessed with three lovely leaks in our ceiling. One was in our storage closet that holds all of hubs’ gear — all of that guy stuff that’s hard to get rid of, but not pretty enough to display. So now it’s all come out of the closet and into the only place we had room to put it, the bedroom; my sanctuary is no longer such. The boys love it, obviously, it’s all for their pleasure: new things to sniff, hide in, shred, and explore. (The boys are dogs, in case you’re not following.) Anyway, add that to the mess the first leak in my closet caused and well, I’m getting anxious just writing about it.
In other news, Dressember is still going well! Who knew!? ‘Tis really is the season for dresses.
The 11th is the day my friend and I decided to head to Americuh for a little shopping therapy. In the 6 years that we’ve lived in Vancouver, I had never been over the border and back in one day. These shopping trips are pretty common, but I’d always thought people were crazy for doing it. No longer. I’m full-on sold. We went to Target, Olive Garden, Trader Joe’s, and Goodwill, and that was enough to send me home elated and over-budget. The big thing I ticked off our list was a juicer; if you’re juicing, we’d love your recipes!!
I can’t get a good enough shot of the above vintage sweater. It’s covered in sequins, but they’re sewn in sideways, not flat like traditional sequined things. So from straight on it looks like a plain old sweater, but when you move, it’s like lasers are shooting out from everywhere — or so my husband says.
