rub it in. oooh, thats nice.


Up until yesterday afternoon, I had no idea if I was going on a week long, tropical vacation to Honduras, starting TOMORROW.   My passport had complications.  I wore a headband in my original photos that I submitted (Darn you Mel for making me so addicted to the darn thing!) and apparently you cannot wear headwear in your passport photo, so my application was      d e   l       a        y       e         d  for almost too long.   The group of people we are going with where freaking out.  I tried to stay calm.  Phew, it came in the mail yesterday.  I packed yesterday afternoon, and will be gone for a whole week (my house will not be empty you boot stealing closet raiders!!)  I have no idea if there will be internet access down there (I am not even really sure geographically where it is, lame I know, but we didn’t really plan this trip, someone else did) So etsy things and blogging things will be temporarily on hold.  I know that I didn’t get things listed.  Busy week.  I am so sorry if you were counting on me for something.  I will be more conscientious about not teasing in the future.   That must be so annoying.

ANYWAY,  The cool naked Harness is going with me. . . to wear OVER something I am sure .  .   .you crazy kids.   I will take tons of DRESSED photos and post them if I have a chance while I am down there, or show and tell when I get back!  I have never been on a vacation like this EVER EVER EVER so its pretty exciting to actually be able to get excited about it!   I hope you have a really nice week next week too!  I am not going to rub this in.   .    .  like sunscreen while sitting on a white sandy beach, cocktail in hand, turquoise sea and dolphins just popping up to say hi.  Ahhhhhhhh.  So nice. 

See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya! 

Just kidding,

not really,

sorry! 

This outfit is completely composed of things that can actually be bought in real stores (or online!) The dress is my pretty silk Shopmamie.com dress (that I wore in a foot of snow here)!  The Mamie girls also have a great new blog you should check out.  These shoes are new too!  I know I said I was getting the Sweedish Hasbeens this year as my ONE SANDAL for spring, but when they arrived they were too narrow for my feet and the larger size was too long.  I returned them with a tear, but then saw these in Lucky Magazine and got on my computer to buy them IMEDIATELY.  They are so statementy and comfy! This hat was from the mens section at Mervyns I think it is Dockers.  It WAS my husband's.  

Allrrighty!  Bye bye!

COMMENT OF THE DAY:  I freaking love Ya Dear!

RETRO REVA said...

the cutest sandals ever!

Shannon said...

I've been to Honduras two times with my church, and plan to go again this summer, because Honduras is freaking amazing. It's the second poorest country in the western hemisphere, but it is BEAUTIFUL. Absolutely gorgeous. The people are so nice, the forest and beaches are so pretty and you'll just want to remain forever. Definitely go to an outdoor market, you can find them everywhere, and make sure you have a lemonada con soda. Just about every restaurant will serve them. I hope you have soooo much fun!

Jessica said...

So. Darn. Jealous.

Really glad your passport stuff worked out though. Have fun! I can't wait to see/hear all about it!

Mel said...

Cute sandals and dress! Hope you have fun on vacation!

I'm a little slow on checking out the updates on my favorite blogs, but I was delighted to see your closet tour! I always like to see how other people organize their clothes. If you have time, I started my own blog not too long ago and put photos of my closet up as one of the first posts. You can look at it here:
