Hiding Out

There is so much going on. I can't go into detail, but my work life isn't all peaches and butterflies right now. There's major change going on, which is causing me (and everyone else here) tremendous amounts of stress. The worst part is that we are all unaware of what that change will be. Like I really need any added onto my home-selling stress. Argh!!! So if you could send some positive vibes my way, I'd greatly appreciate it!

In the meantime, let me give you a list of some of the goings on that I haven't blogged about!

I'm doing another show in October! It's called Made for You, and I have a feeling it's going to be more of an appropriate show for me than Art Star was.

We're skipping Lollapalooza this year. I sold my tix because it didn't fit into our schedule (timing-wise and financially) at this point.

Instead, we're adding a little time to our summer New Hampshire trip! We'll be stopping in Providence, RI on the way up and Boston, MA on the way down. Four star hotels both places! Thank you Hotwire.com!!! We'll be living the life of luxury at a discounted price. (The Hotel Providence and The Westin Copley Place)

Still showing our house. We had two visits yesterday. No bites. But we found out our new place is now not going to be ready until March. Five month delay. Good and bad.

Also, because of missing Lollapalooza, we added two concerts to our calendar. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs in a few weeks and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah in November, both Lolla performers. Hmm, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah Yeah Yeah.

I had an amazing time in Arizona! Thanks to my lovely ladies for taking care of me and protecting me from the heat! Looking forward to another trip out there in November if all goes well.

Hope you are all doing okay out there! I promise I won't be in hiding forever!

"I'm melting! I'm melting!"

That's what I'll be screeching after my plane lands in Arizona tomorrow morning. Who goes to Arizona in the summer??

I do. I needed a break from everyday life, so I booked a flight to Arizona to visit my two favorite girls! We are going to kick back and craft and swim and lounge and maybe even play some Guitar Hero. Who knows?! But I am excited indeed!

We always have the bestest time together!

Honestly, how can you not love these girls?!

So I'll be away until Monday. Have a pleasant weekend everyone!

Oh, and just for mista, who is very interested in hearing my iPhone review: I LOVE IT!!! There hasn't been a single disappointment so far. I can't believe I can check my email anywhere! Coverage has been great for me. Battery life has been fine. I'd like a little more storage (I went with the 4GB version), only because I could only fit 4 episodes of America's Next Top Model (Season 8) on there along with my music and photos. I got used to the keyboard in a few days and am very impressed at its intuitiveness. So all in all, the iPhone comes highly recommended from me! (Go ahead mista, get one!)

Luck o' the draw!

Rob and I went to First Friday this weekend and had a great time wandering around the galleries of Philadelphia. But the highlight had to be our trip to the new art store on Market St between 3rd and 4th. Great store! The location is so much more convenient than Pearl, for me. And I picked up some gorgeous papers while I was there.

Since it was their first First Friday, they were holding a few drawings for some artsy fartsy prizes. Well, guess what. Rob and I EACH won something! How lucky is that???

Rob ended up with a calligraphy/lettering set, which is really a prize for me. I doubt Rob is going to start learning calligraphy any time soon.

And I was lucky enough to walk away with one of their best prizes!

Because what I really need is another crafty obsession.

See? I'm a winner, no matter what those kids in my 8th grade English class said!

"I want the world!"

"I want the whole world. I want to lock it all up in my pocket, it's my bar of chocolate! Give it to me!"

- Veruca Salt

I am so impatient. And greedy. I didn't need this. Not at all. But I couldn't help treating myself to this magnificent piece of technology! It's just so...so...COOL!!!!

Happy 4th of July!

Shiver me timbers!

Saturday we were invited to attend a pirate-themed party. Or is it parrrrr-ty? Three neighbors took down their fences to hold this huge summer bash, filled with festivities! I'd have to say, it was quite an elaborate event!

Here I am, all decked out:

And a few choice photos from the affair:
