The throes of packing

I'm warm and cozy inside while it's blizzarding (I know that's not a word but I think it should be) all around. Too bad I'm not doing something more fun than packing my house... who's idea was it to move at Christmas time? (Jeremy's... not to throw him under the bus or anything) I'm determined to be all packed before we head to Central OR this weekend. I think I just might make it. Don't expect a Christmas card this year though, I'm not that on top of things. Well, I better get back at it. If I turn my music up loud I almost mistake this for a party. Maybe not, but this lovely quirky song is helping me push through.

Traffic Light - The Ting Tings

ps- Technical difficulties- I have no idea why it's not playing the whole song. click on the link to go to imeem and listen.

All dressed up and no place to go

Church is cancelled today due to snow. (We don't get much around here and our little city is unprepared to deal with it.) We found out 10 minutes before leaving for our first meeting. (Just in the nick of time) :) Am I going to hell if I prayed for lots of snow last night? Grown-ups need snow days too!
"This must be what it's like to live in a snow globe" said Jeremy

I'm packing my camera in plastic and going for a walk. And maybe making a snow angel or two.

Something to put your STUFF in

This morning's update in my shop: Reusable shopping bags.

City sidewalks... dressed in Holiday Style

Last night I met up with Jeremy to join him on his walk home from the office. We took the scenic route cuz our neighborhood's so festive lately.

Jer waited patiently for me to snap some photos
(Rockstar was patient too.)
I want to come back here with a tripod. I kinda like it all jittery though.

Tonight we're going to watch the home team:
And I'm soooo excited to go see this tomorrow:

Nuestra Familia.
Congratulations to my sister's friend Ale!!!
Email me with your address and I'll send that calendar right over. (red rover, red rover)
Thanks to all who played! SO NICE to have your support!!!

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?

ps- I know it's backwards, that's the nature of ttv photography. :)

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.
