I would give anything to have a fireplace. Until then, I have my "faux" mantel that I am kinda loving right now. I had to rearrange some things because the new additions have decided that they like to destroy my beloved plants. Several broken pots and ruined succulents later, all my plants are out of kitten reach and I couldn't be happier :)

New Additions

So, the only problem with working at an animal hospital is that every know and then there are pets that need a home. Enter these two little ones. They had been living at the hospital hoping to find a home for about a month with no luck. I decided to introduce them to Sam one day at lunch and it was instant chemistry. I was sold, and once Jeremy met them it a done deal. So, Johnny (black and white) and June (mostly black) are now Zieglers. They are little shits, but we love them :)

2011 Style Inspiration....

I have been coveting all things 70's lately. I love everything about it, here are some pictures I found to guide the small amount of shopping I do...

When the simple life started 7 or so years ago, I never in a million years would have thought that I would be turning to Nicole Richie for style tips. Needless to to say, I think she has some of the best personal style in all of hollywood. Love the hat, love the vest, love the sheer shirt, love everything about it :)

I wasn't to crazy about the movie, but Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie had some super cute outfits.

Ali Macgraw, Classic 1970's chic.

Jane Birkin, enough said.

Love anything high waisted and wide legged.

Farrah Fawcett, I need to find some old Nike Cortez!

Dazed and Confused, One of my favorite movies about the 70's.

Biba girls, Oh to be a young fashionista in London in the late 60's. Someone find me a time machine, Stat!!

It's a new dawn, it's a new day.....

And I'm feeling good........ :)

Happy 2011 everyone! I can't believe another year has come and gone. 2010 definitely had its ups, but also had way too many downs. I am hoping that 2011 is the year of positiveness, starting with a few easy new years resolutions:
  1. Drink more water and less wine and coffee.
  2. Finish all unfinished projects.
  3. When starting a new project, finish it before starting another!!!
  4. Get out in nature more often.
  5. Plan a few more get-aways.
  6. De-clutter my life, starting with our apartment.
  7. Stay committed to my online classes and finish with at least a B.
  8. Post new blogs on a regular basis :)
Seems easy enough, right? Only time will tell........
