I dusted off the old stroller and we've been going on walks. Today we went to the Spectrum and I saw some of my old work peeps. I miss them! It still feels like I'm on vacation and will be going back. Weird. We also went on the carousel, although she was too scared to sit on any horse by herself, and the smug carousel worker guy with the cool sunglasses would not let her sit on my lap. Boo! I mean, isn't it safer for me to sit with her, then to stand next to her? I'm just sayin... I almost asked for my 2 dollars back. She still had fun though of course. Here's a pic of us on there, I took with my phone. Aww, look how big she's getting! She is 18 months old today...little rascal...

I got some of this print for Carys' room, I would love to make some Roman shades out of them.
I also got some of this geometric print that has no home yet, maybe somewhere in the kitchen?
Here are a couple others I liked, but couldn't afford to buy the whole store. The blue and black is by Miller, and the orange buds are Amy Butler.
There is a lot more, if you're into fabrics you should check it out!

They have treated me well, but I am so excited for this next stage of my life, getting to be there full-time for my husband and daughter. As happy as I am to be moving on, there is still a part of me that is quite sad to be leaving. People at work become like family, people you are stuck with but grow to love (well, most of them...ha!)

The last couple years Carys has been cranky, so I haven't gotten the best pictures. I plan to keep dressing the whole family up as long as they will let me! This year we went as Pilgrims and a turkey. I bought the Pilgrim costumes, but I made the turkey costume, too bad I couldn't get her to wear anything on her head. Maybe next year!
Here she is with the other animals.
Ye Olde Family picture...see what I mean about cranky?

I think I should get this chair as an ode to my Grandma Clark, who loved blue. Plus it's a fabulous chair anyway.
Like orange sherbert...mmmmm
What's cooler than a portrait of a cheetah in a suit? A portrait of a cheetah in a suit with an eye patch.

I have seen these flowers a lot on various blogs and I just love them. For some reason they have been really hard for me to find. I found them on this one wholesale site, but they were like $400 for a big bunch of them. Ummm no. I just think they would be perfect in a white vase on my mantel. Maybe one day I will try to grow them myself. They are also called Billy Buttons. Oh you elusive Caspedia!!

Video - wedding
Originally uploaded by kwunischelove
My friend Michelle was married last weekend at her parent's house, and it was such a lovely and personal wedding. I loved it. Michelle looked absolutely gorgeous. Too bad Nathan was out of town but I took Carys as my date.
Here is video of the groom's dad playing during the ceremony. Sorry the quality isn't great, I was sitting in the back. But it was just the sweetest thing!
I promise this was water. I discovered she can drink much better out of a champagne flute than a regular glass!

I couldn't quite figure out how to post images directly from it yet, the technology is a little over my head...here is the direct link to one of the pages I liked.
Lonny Issue 1
My favorite thing I saw was this antler chandelier, its only $6000. Sheeesh! I do love it though.

The name says it all, this site has tons of cool vintage pieces. The only thing is you have to go down to the store in LA to actually buy the items. The site has everything broken down by style, or color, or type.
I have yet to make my way up there yet, but its definitely on my (long) to-do list.
This hexagon mirror is 80 bucks.
I like this cork lamp also, its 90 bucks.
This Is Why You're Fat
I came across this site one day while researching the Taco Nachos at Jack-in-the-Box. (quite tasty by the way).
Next time you feel like cheating on your diet, check this place out. You will feel like you pigged out on some serious grub. It will either satisfy your craving by just looking, or send you over the edge and into a pig-out frenzy, looking to deep fry everything in sight. This is at your own risk.
The Fat Elvis - Deep fried pb&j and banana sandwich sprinkled with powdered sugar
The Double Bypass Burger - 5 slices of bacon, 4 slices of cheese, 2 Fried Eggs, mayo, lettuce, tomato and onion between 2 grilled cheese sandwiches. Need I say more.

As I see Carys' personality unfolding, it is just the most exciting thing ever. She's starting to say words like 'kee-kee' for the cat, 'be-lee' for balloons, and of course Mommy! She likes to try on shoes, hers or mine. The other day at the Gap she grabbed a pink tutu and walked all around the store with it, so I'm thinking she will love to shop (who doesn't though, right?). I've been reading her goodnight stories for a while but now I can tell that she actually likes it. She kind of falls down a lot but she hardly every cries, tough girl! And she loves to dance. I just love my girly tough girl.

(I'm still trying to find out how to post an actual link under a photo so you can link right to it. I don't know why I can't figure this out since it seems like such a basic concept!) Update: just kidding, i figured it out!

I LOVE this Chie Mahara green suede - can be yours for $350...
Here is an MB bag similar to mine, for $105, but looks designer to me, and its well made too...
Lets just say its not all cute, how about this open toed gladiator boot by Blowfish? So wrong on many levels...
I'll leave you with these Sam Edelman sandals, because they are orange, and they are flats, and that's mostly how I roll..
