today is my only relaxing day off in a long time and for a long time. next week i will be working my old full time job and my new full time job. it will be exhausting, but im very excited for something new!

today was spent sleeping in with my love, running a few errands, cleaning up a bit, and mostly relaxing reading magazines and catching up on blogs.

today i was looking at a cafe racer blog i stumbled upon, and what-do-ya-know... there was an old photo of me and andy from pangea speed. i always feel so strange when i stumble upon photos of myself. it made me blush and giggle a little. you can have a look for yourself here.

also, im not really sure how our photo made it onto the blog seeing as how the bike im perched on isnt even a cafe style bike. huh?

had to have it!

i know, i know, i say that about a lot of things. but this was one of those love at first sight moments and i have only had a few of those in my life. since im not fond of heartbreak, i knew this amazing sofa needed to come live with me!

i first laid eyes on this beauty at my favorite local vintage furniture store, elemente (i will do a thorough post about them later). the sofa had just barely come into the store and was not priced yet. i jumped and put it on hold right away! if there is one thing i know about elemente, its that you need to be the first to see something. by the time i was given the price a day later, there were multiple admirers and people tallied up after my name waiting to make this sofa theirs. 

i didnt really have the money, but i always find a way when there is something i want! did i mention im a scorpio haha. anyway, i had milo come look at it with me one afternoon. she makes much more rational decisions than i do and i knew she would be my voice of reason. the moment she walked into elemente she said, "oh my god, you have to get it!" not quite the reaction i was expecting, but i had my answer.

since milo was so eager, i coaxed her into helping me move it into my place. i was not able to find any strong boys, and my poor boyfriend has a bad back. so there we were, two strong girls moving a sofa in the rain and up several flights of stairs. we did it and im so proud of us!

i love everything about it. the color. the upholstery. the size. the comfort. and its in perfect condition. this is my very first sofa and im sure i will enjoy it for many years to come!


p.s. i neglected to mention that my sofa splurge totally pushed milo into buying a very similar one of her own. she had been eyeing it for awhile and, being a very supportive friend, i told her that she, "had to have it!" so yes, we both bought mid century sofas on the very same day. sometimes i think we are soulmates ;)

still here.

sorry for my absence as of late. not only was i lucky enough to get pneumonia last week, it was followed by the stomach flu. someone once told me that i seem to do everything in my life 110%. getting sick is no exception. when my body decides to get sick, it about takes me out!

regular (and much better) blogging to commence soon.
