Remember that awesome food machine where they would just push a button and in seconds have like a T-bone steak and garlic mashed potatoes? I wish I had one of those machines for clothes. Wouldn't that rock? Birkin Bag, presto! Perfect black pencil skirt, coming right up!
If I had a Jetsons clothes machine, I would be wearing this to work tomorrow.

It turns out that my new "minidress" is actually a shirt. Who knew? I was so excited to wear my new "minidress" because I never wear skirts or dresses cut above the knee, so I was really venturing out of my fashion comfort zone with this one. I went online to get a picture of the dress to show my girlfriend, and found it listed under the "Tops" category, not the "Dresses" category. What a dork.
I'm rockin it anyway.

I do realize that this post is neither sneaky, nor chic, and probably classifies me as a nerd. However, for those of you who have not played the Nintendo Wii, you are totally missing out. Trust me, I AM NOT a video game person. In fact, I hate video games. But the Wii is so much different. It gets you off of your ass and you even get to create a little character in your likeness called a Mii. That is so cute! Thanks to my friend Melanie and her adorable daughter Lauren, I had the opportunity to play (and get spanked by a 4th grader). We played Tennis, Bowling and Boxing. I also read online that there is a Wii Yoga too - I have got to try that! Now I finally understand all the hype.

Rachel Leigh Studded Belt, $150
Have you seen those super annoying commercials on TV for chickdowntown.com? Well, they are really lame and don't even show cute outfits, but the theme song was stuck in my head all day yesterday, so I guess the commercial was successful. I went to check out the site and found this gorgeous dress and some awesome accessories. The belt was inspired by Carrie's vintage studded belt in the Sex and the City movie. Me-ow!

So, one of my current obsessions is a white or cream Barcelona Chair. I really want one (actually two). That chair is just plain awesome. Clean lines, timeless style, a little leather, a little chrome, modern and classic all at the same time, I love it.
I recently posted about my design dilemma here. I am trying to re-vamp my living room that was done by HGTV. I got so many great ideas from the blog world (THANK YOU!). I have been making small changes since then, but now I need chairs. Should I do two of the same, or two different? I kind of lean towards two of the same because I normally prefer symmetry.
Here are some that I like, including the gorgeous Barcelona chair that haunts my dreams. If anyone has a source for a good deal on these, let me know!
Barcelona Chair, DWR $5,027
Abigail Slipper Chair, William-Sonoma Home $995

Vacations were fabulous, but there is NOTHING on this earth better than coming home and sleeping in my own bed! You know what I'm sayin?
The Riu Resort in Puerto Vallarta was great. The grounds were very clean and well maintained. The staff was awesome and really took care of us. If you are a big drinker, then this is the place for you. In addition to being all-inclusive including alcohol, each room has a mini bar stocked daily with sodas, beer, water, tonic and club soda. Why would you need tonic and club soda you ask? Because right above the fridge is a liquor cabinet with Vodka, Gin, Rum, and of course, Tequila - all free. Crazy.
The food was good, not spectacular, but definitely better than I expected- and lots of options. We ate at the Brazilian style restaurant one night and that was really tasty and entertaining.
I was very careful and used bottled water for everything, but I still managed to get sick. Really sick. The kind of sick I am not even going to elaborate on because it is so foul. Unfortunately, I had to travel to our second destination in this condition. Ick.
The Dominican Republic was wonderful as always. It was fun to visit my husband's family, whom I love and adore. His class reunion was really nice. I was the only spouse there for the first half until a really nice guy called his wife and told her to come and hang out with me. I guess we didn't get the memo. I was happy to see my husband's face and the excitement in his eyes as he got reacquainted with people that he had not seen in 25 years. That was cool.
All in all, Montezuma's revenge aside, we had two great trips. Now I have to go tend to my kitty, who at the moment hates my guts for leaving her for 3 weeks. This will require about three full days of ass kissing, petting and brushing before she is back to normal and will let us sleep through the night. God bless the little fur ball!
