Lots of action this weekend!

.....Not THAT kind of action! I wish!!!

Mom's in town, and since I bought a new bedroom set LAST weekend (pics to come when its delivered) I decided it was time to redecorate my bedroom.... So Friday was painting day.....which started with primer since my bedroom was a crazy bright yellow before. Now its a pale purple with lavendar and chocolate bedding. Very peaceful and calming. Anyways....painting a room is a lot of work as some of you know...especially when you are up and down on the ladder a lot...and using the roller up legs are still sore!!!

Then today...I got Wii!!!!!!!!!!!! Its crazy how much it gets you up fact I started doing research and there are people that add 30-45 minutes of wii play (typically wii sports .. with boxing or tennis burning the most calories) who have lost weight over time. and I have been playing wii for hours...its fun! But exhausting!

Maybe now I'll play more wii than keep shopping...damn have I spent a lot of money this month!!!!

OH! And unrelated...but my brother just bought his first place!!! I little 1 bed 1 bath condo in roscoe park (chicago). I'm so excited for him!!!!

High Heels

"High heels are a paradox. They can make a woman appear more - or less - powerful"
--Rona Berg, Vogue

How true is that????? A woman in a power suite with Manolo mary janes looks a lot different than a big haired woman with too much bright colored make up, a mini skirt, and 3 inch stilettos.....

What kind of Alcoholic Drink are You?

You Are Sex On the Beach

When comes to drinking, you like it to go down smooth.
You really don't like the taste of alcohol - just its effect on you.
So, you're proud to get drunk on fruity, girly drinks.
Because once you're liquored up, the fun begins!

My weekend purchases!

Hermes Kelly Dog Bracelet in PlumSignature Stripe Multicolor Messenger
Signature Stripe Multicolor Mini Skinny
Ireland Wedges in Bronze Crinkle Patent and Black Patent

Holy Mother of God...

I spent a LOT of money today in Chicago!!!

Started off at Nordstrom where I bought a dress that might be good for the weddings I have to go to this summer.

Headed on to the coach store where I picked up the Ireland wedges I've been the bronze (because they didn't have the black I wanted in my size). I also picked up
Signature Multicolor Stripe Messenger I've been longing for. Along with t he matching Mini Skinny. And some signature cleaner.

Then stopped off at Macy's on the way to Hermes...because I was FREEZING and decided I needed a sweater or jacket or something....where I ended up with a Lauren Ralph Lauren denim jacket.

Then finally on to Hermes for Michelle to shop....but I ended up making my first Hermes purchase....A Kelly bracelet in Raisin Box.

Then mom wanted to hit the OTHER coach store...and they had the Ireland wedges I wanted in the BLACK! So I bought those too....

Thank god it was dinner time and then too late to keep shopping!
