Get Artsy - Wynwood Art Walk

I felt extremely artsy with my friends the other day. 
Who doesn't love being a tourist in their own city... and for FREE!?!

I was "HERE" really, I was!

The Design District and Wynwood areas in Miami have several designer shops, art galleries, and warehouses. Every second saturday of the month, they open their doors to the public so they can view, visit, and purchase art and meet the artists. What better place to go and get your artsy fartsy on?!

On April...after many months of begging, my friends and I finally made it out to the Wynwood Art Walk.
It was a great place to meet up with friends, see lots of art, eat some grub, drink some good booze, and hang out with the local hipster crowd.

Floppy Disk Art!

If you are creative enough, you will find that you can make art out of almost ANYTHING! 
But now that I say that, do you have the tools to do this?
If you do...what are you waiting for?!?

No trip out with these fools is without it's good FOOD TRUCKS we found!

Afraid that the bench below them will break!

That artist responsible for the bright walls designed her own drawings and sold them as stickers!

A must...a stop to one of the many watering holes in the area...Wood Tavern!

Some of mah beeshes!!!

And this is why...

When was the last time you were a tourist in your own city?

Retro Girrrrlllll

Well hello there little chickies!

I convinced the hubs to take more pictures of me in this little get up, so I must warn you:
1. Hubby is not a photog and can't take direction well.
2. Camera doesn't shake, but angles and backgrounds are off, ha!
3. It was sunny as hell and I squinted a lot!
4. Most of my accessories are in boxes, so I was limited in my choices.

But the real reason why this adventure happened is because some time ago eShakti contacted me to conduct a product review and well, I couldn't resist!
I had been eyeing some of their pieces on their website for some time.

eShakti is an online clothing company that customizes their pieces just for you. They carry sizes 0-36W and the different styles are made to fit your shape! First, you select the dress, skirt, blazer, and/or blouse. And oh my, there were so many to chose from!! Second, they ask for your measurements, this is how you know the dress is tailored just for you. I'd ask someone to help you take your measurements to get it just right! Then, you are asked if you'd like to customize your dress by adding or removing sleeves, increasing/decreasing the length of the skirt/dress, and/or adjusting the neckline.  

And only a few days after I had hit 'submit', the dress arrived promptly!
The dress was beautiful! I chose it because I am in love with the retro style. The dress had great details, it was lined, with pleats on the right areas and it had pockets! The A-line style of the dress hid my pear shape body. I loved the way it fit and above all the colors and playfulness of the dress.

Are his photography skills getting better?
Or am I becoming a skilled photo editor?

Unicorn poop

Oh hai there little dumplings!

So happy you've come to visit my neck of the woods today! Guess it's been kinda bare, so I had to come back, let some unicorns loose, and have them spread glitter poop all over here! HA!

To give you a little update...nope, no casa...nope, I'm not preggers (then again I drop off the kiddos in the pool daily). Oh and some good things... yep, I've got a job (which means tons of report writing), yep I have food (which means I've gained 5 more pounds) and yep....I FOUND TIME TO BLOG!!!

Seriously folks, I was making a habit of opening my laptop only to write reports and catch up on work at home, but who wants to do that? I mean, sleepless nights and dreams of task, to-do lists, and meetings to look forward to?... *vomit*! 

This is why today I bring you endless pictures of my new hobby...KICKBALL!!!

Our team name is Ball of Duty. Now, if you do not know why this is the name we used, you must not have a boyfriend/husband/son/brother who is hooked into a familiar video game that rhymes with our team name.

Stop staring at my ass already!

The team is mostly made up of my group of friends, but we picked up some "free agents" that are hilarious to hang out with. 

Can you believe it's our third week/game and we finally had our first win after scoring 2 runs at the last inning!  Yeah, we are pretty lame!

Friday, March 29, 2013 I'll spill the beans...

I've never been quite the frequent writer on my blog, but I like to bring you sunshine and sprinkles whenever I can. It helps me look at the bright side of things, even when my little corner holds a little cloud overhead. Another reason, well, it's because I still like my privacy. I haven't quite told you everything that has been going on. Not just because of privacy, but for fear of jinxing things.

For the last few months hubby and I have been staying at my sister's house. She and her hubby have been uber welcoming to us. I mean, she and I have shared a room for half of our lives and we would fight like crazy. Now, under the same roof, but in different rooms, we get along much better. It may also help that our husbands also get a long like brothers. Overall, the fact that we are here is a win-win for both parties.

Why are we here? Well, we sold our home. Although this part was easy, buying a house has not been easy. We've encountered our share of difficulties with sellers, banks, and appraisers. For the last month a half we had an eye on the perfect house. We spent all the extras to make sure we were on par...and then became a no go. What can I tell you other than, its the shits. 

So as I sit here complaining of not having enough space for myself, not having my entire closet with me, and not being able to walk around naked in my house...I am also super thankful that I have a roof over my head, that I am able to save some money, and that I get to see my family on the daily. I am also much closer to my sister and my parents than I was some time ago.

So I am sure the right home will come along soon. Because if it is meant to will be.

Until then....we will just keep our fingers and toes crossed.
oh...and do lots of breathing techniques, because my anxiety is through the roof!

Step Up and DANCE!!

Remember some time ago...I told you I was in a movie?
Well, since this event is very likely to not happen again, I must tell you about it one more time.

Come on! This is the only other place I get to gloat about my accomplishments! HA!

The scene, a beach hotel. Full of sun and sand, and yes, lots of humidity and some rain.  The hair and make-up people chased the actors everywhere. Unfortunately for me, the heat and humidity are not my friends. Specially if I'm trying to look cute. 
My make-up was runny with sweat and my hair was a frizzball. See, that's not cute.

But sometimes, if you stood in the right spot and away from the crowd, you may be lucky enough to get called to be part of a different shot...

And I did a few times. 
Sometimes it was to do a "walk by" and others were only to just be with a group and pretend to have fun.

Although I can spot myself (my frizzy hair or my elbow) on those other shots, this shot was the one that stood out long enough for my family to create a little fuss about me....

These are of course youtube clips and their screen shots...
but hey, this was the one shot worth showing you....
or you can fast forward to 2:20 ;)

I just wish that maybe next time, I can actually be one of the dancers in the movie.
Maybe? Someday?

Do you think I should include "Step Up" to my resume???

Random as Always

hello there friend...
It's finally SATURDAY!!!

On the usual it would mean party and drinks and dancing.
However, today I will dedicate it to Pinteresting and catching up with life.

Today I will allow my ADHD to kick in and give you all of the random thoughts that are in my head at the moment...

Did I mention hubby cooked yesterday? He made lasagna for dinner. I was so happy I had a few too many glasses of moscato. That sorta took me to bed too soon. 

I was drunk at home!! I passed out on the couch. I apologize for not having a picture to go with that fabulous moment though.

On the other hand, 
I have so much work to do!!!! I don't even know where to start. Or even IF I want to start. 
I've got about 5 reports to finish before April. Can I do it?
This would require me to bring work home daily. Which I have done this week, but let's not go there because that's just boring...

Anyhow, this Tshirt makes me smile..

I found these at Target! These are definitely the best thing for organization!
Imagine using these lists to go shopping...scheduling meals....and the best one...

Today's breakfast is brought to you by Wonder Woman and Starbucks... 

This is what I'm going to need when I'm close to completing the reports due for work...
