In other news... Before my mom left town this past weekend she, my sis and I made our way over to House of Vintage. Here are some of my prizes:would you believe $5?
These are vintage gym lockers. I am so excited to have found these babies because our new loft (we're moving in three weeks) has an entire wall of built in bookshelves. Super cool (there's a rolling ladder and everything) but super hard to fill. These will be a great because they can store my less-cute belongings and fill up some of that shelf space. Yay!
Same fan as above, I just kinda liked this picture.
Also, all morning I've been listening to this:
Sadly, he's not here but my daddy's Christmas album has definitely been on repeat. The sound of acoustic guitar takes me right home.

There's a scene with a nearly identical view of our very own Columbia Gorge in this movie:

Rockstar HATES the rain. Poor little guy had to be born to an Oregonian breeder. I thought maybe this coat would make him more reasonable during winter walks. Turns out I just found something else he hates... doggie apparel. He wouldn't move an inch while wearing it. No amount of coaxing would make him walk. I think he felt humiliated- maybe he knew I found it in the dollar bin at Target. The little snob.

Still no Scottsdale pics to post, I've been running around preparing for our youth beach retreat this weekend. I've also been sneezing a lot. Please bless I'm not getting sick. Sure glad my sneeze is more subtle than this panda's, but I do think I've startled my sleeping dog a time or two. I hope this video kicks your weekend off right. Huh-larious.

I love Zooey Deschanel. She just seems so dang cool. She was hysterical in Failure to Launch, she has super cool style, and on the list of things I covet most in this world... her voice is tops. Anyway, there was an interview with her in Nylon Magazine and she was talking about how fulfilled she is. That she is living her dreams. How great for her! I found it so inspiring, and am feeling more motivated than ever. I want to do what's necessary to put me in a place that if someone were to interview me, I could say the same. The interview ended with a line from my favorite childhood movie (and coincidentally, Zooey's) "Sometimes, the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true." - The Wizard of Oz
I'm listening to her album right now... Sentimental Heart is my fav track.
I also read The Secret Life of Bees, a book chalk-full of inspiration. One excerpt that I especially loved is a discussion between Lily and Zach when they're talking about what they want to be when they grow-up. She says, "I've just never heard of a Negro lawyer, that's all. You've got to hear of these things before you can imagine them." To which Zach replies, "Bull... You gotta imagine what's never been."
Makes me wonder what I should be imagining.
