Life Lately

Photobucket Photobucket "What's it like to grow up in Vegas?" "Extremely wild and extremely BORING and suburban." I can assure you. Look at this photo. Photobucket

This summer is treating us well! (Besides working heaps)
I went to West Seattle to visit Chris at his place of employment overlooking the Puget Sound.
I spent a day walking around the city by myself.
I devoured vege yam tacos at Poquitos for the first time.
Visited Vegas for mum's birthday, remembered what music used to be like at a millennium indie inspired show, celebrated the 4th of July watching the fireworks on Lake Union, met animals I've never heard of before at the zoo, saw the Nirvana, Jimmy Hendrix, ACDC, Avatar, Science Fiction Icons and horror movie exhibits at the EMP (Experience Music Project), went on a boat ride tour of Chief Seattle, visited the aquarium, touched a sea creature, adored the otters, caught up with our old Kiwi mates ranting about the National Party, went to Bauhaus coffee, discussing Eames architecture at the Science Center, sang Arrested Development and Notorious BIG at Rockbox karaoke for Sarah's birthday, saw the King Tut exhibit, went up on the Space Needle for the first time, drinking hot cocoa, watching the sunset!

We are so glad we live here now.

Wasn't the opening ceremony of the Olympics so fun and so British tonight? Loved the tributes!

On a very, very, very serious note, here are two recent blog entries written by my amazing husband Chris - Land of the Free? Which Freedom Do You Prefer?

and the great Kiwi blogger James Robinson
More guns, Much More Sadness

So tragic and senseless. My heart is wishing for a lifetime of strength and healing.
Enjoy your summer, stay safe, much love and happiness to you.

Hello! I am back. Whenever I think I'm back on a fairly regular schedule, the pains of settling into a new city come back to me. Half of the summer is gone, and Chris and I are trying our best to enjoy the little time we do have together. If we are lucky, we get one day off together once a week. Photobucket These photos were taken one month ago [blogging fail :(]. We happily tried the coffee and chai lattes at our local cafe! I adore this urban space and love our neighborhood.

I found this dream vintage blouse via Crossroads! Las Vegas has a replica Arc de Triomphe. I've spent many nights in Vegas at these tacky replica sights wishing I were at the real thing. Hopefully, one day I'll see Champs-Élysées with my own eyes.

That day we ate beans on toast thanks to Chris' friends in New Zealand! And we met up with C&P and Chance browsing the local antique and throwback sportswear shops. We heard the Pete & Pete soundtrack at another cafe in Capitol Hill. The barista smiled when we recognized it.
My alma mater! I'll always be a Runnin' Rebel at heart. I got accepted at the University of Washington for a certificate program! UW is an AMAZING school, and I'm feeling incredibly honored to have such talented professors . I'm in Pac 12 husky territory now, but I'm still a rebel. :)

Emma Stone: Vogue July 2012

Aren't these images of Emma Stone so fun and bold? I see a lot of commentary about how she looks like a mad hatter, but I can always appreciate a bold outrageous print. Wouldn't it be so fun to wear these suits walking around New York City?
