having crushes is fun

Okay, so my post about Inception, Leo, and Joseph Gordon Levitt the other day got me thinking about how incredibly fun it is to have that giddy feeling of butterflies and gaga eyes that you get when you have a little crush. 

Today, let's talk about our top crushes! Because it's fun. And because, remember junior high? This is how every class period, every day went between my friends and me:

-Friend passes a note to me that reads: "Who is your top 10?"
-Meaning of course, who are the top 10 cutie pie boys that I had crushes on at that exact moment {because, let's face it, my top 10 changed DAILY depending on how much attention one boy gave me one day or whether I liked their cologne or for no reason at all!}.
-After pondering the question quite seriously for a few minutes, I jot down my list-o-boys and ask the same question, "Who are your top 10???"
-We then compared lists to see if we were crushin' on the same boys, then we could giggle and gaga over them together - yay! 

Haha. Reminiscing aside, let's play Top 10 Celeb Crushes.

10. George Clooney
He'll be a heartthrob beyond the day he dies. Genuinely dashing good looks!

9. Paul Walker
Well, I just couldn't NOT include him! I had a severe crush on him during the Fast & The Furious time of my life. He is just so pretty! And those blue eyes!

8. Hayden Christensen
 Quirky and adorable! Too cute. 

7. Johnny Depp
Bad boy. Creative. Super sexy.

6. Leonardo DiCaprio
My Titanic crush will never ever go away! That wasn't really meant to be a pun, but it turned out to be one, and I like it.
5. Eric Bana
 Love him! Studliest man in Troy, hands down, in my opinion! 

4. David Beckham
I. Love. Soccer Boys. Always have.

3. Kellan Lutz
 Holy Hotness! Um, move over Lautner {sorry, I've decided I don't love you anymore}, Kellan is my new Twilight man. Good move, Calvin Klein. Good move.

2. Cam Gigandet
 Such. A. Stud.

1. Joseph Gordon Levitt 
Currently holding the #1 spot due to his sexy rendition of Arthur in Inception! Kinda scrawny but it works for him and I love his eye crinkles when he smiles! O.M.G. Crush! 

So, what have we learned? I love muscles. I love tattoos. But don't let my crushes fool you, I love my husband above all. Remember how I said I love soccer boys and blue eyes?

Love love love my man and my heart still flutters when I see or think about him :) 

Cheers to knowing you're lucky to have what you've got!

*Who are YOUR top 10? Comment and let me know who your hunkiest hunks are or tell me if you blog your top 10 so we can all read it ! :)

**Oh, and I have to tell you I came across such a fun new blog! Jess @ Polka Dots, Pearls, and Pink, Oh My! is doing the cutest necklace giveaway! Check her out :)

fill in the blank friday - all about sleep

I haven't done a Fill In The Blank Friday in a while! But here I am with Lauren @ The Little Thing We Do's weekly installment! This week's questionnaire is all about sleep --- mmmm, my favorite activity! 

 {pretty bedroom!}

1.  The last thing I do before going to sleep is       kiss my husband goodnight, I just can't sleep unless I do!  

2.  When I can't sleep I      move positions a lot, sigh deeply, and usually end up reading for hours or sometimes even going to the gym  .

3.  The first thing I do when I wake up is      potty time {for me as well as puppies}   .

4.  When I'm tired I       cry real easily and can be a beyotch   .

5.  My dream bedroom would be     it's really getting to be my dream bedroom! I want a new fluffy white comforter with a green throw and a white bedskirt. I also want curtains and new MATCHING white shabby chic dressers (instead of this mish-mash hand me down furniture situation...)  .

6.  If I could wake up anywhere tomorrow morning it would be       on a plane about to embark upon a 6-month all-expense paid trip around the world with my husband {and ideally the puppies would be allowed to go everywhere with us - even into the Louvre!}   .

7.  The longest sleep I've ever had was      when I was in elementary school I was really sick and I went to sleep around 8pm for bed...and woke up at 5pm the next day! Yikes!      .

8.  I sleep on my     side usually to start. Whatever side faces the outside of the bed. But sometimes my tummy. And then my back ends up hurting so I end up on my back. Always with a pillow between my knees! 

9.  When I sleep, I like to wear        Long soft shirts or like a little jersey dress from Old Navy  .

10.  My bedtime is usually      10:30ish if I'm not working, if I work a night then bedtime is at 8am!

thoughts i am thinking

Happy Wednesday!

I am thinking some random things. And maybe you'd like to take a little trip into this silly little mind of mine...

1. know I have been collecting Disney movies...last week I went a little crazy and bought like 10 movies between ebay, Amazon, and Target. I decided to try buying a couple of used movies that were of "very good" quality to save some $$. Well, that worked out just fine for Aladdin and Pocahontas...but let me tell Emperor's New Groove used movie was NOT "very good" quality! The cover had sticky stuff on it and the pictures under the plastic were all frayed around the edges. Not cool. :( So, what do I do? I buy another *new* copy from Target! Morals of the story: I'm not buying used D. movies anymore - sorry, I just like the shiny pretty covers too much. And I'm kind of ridiculous, proof being that now I own two copies of the Emperor's New Groove. lol. 

2. Speaking of said Disney spree...I have decided that my compulsive and impulsive buying needs to yesterday! I decided I am going to my girlfriend's wedding in Seattle in September, and to make this work I need to cut out the D sprees, Target sprees, and all other unnecessary expenses that would make me feel slightly guilty. I decided this on Sunday and so far, so good! {I know, it's only been 3 days...but give me a little credit!}

3. I DESPERATELY need to go to the grocery store! I. Need. Milk. A.S.A.P. Our fridge is pretty bare except for condiments...

4. I saw Salt with a gf last night. Pretty good! I mean, it's the typical Angelina is a hot bad-ass movie, but there's some pretty sweet CIA/spy twists to it! I give it 3 1/2 stars. 

5. My mommy is coming up today to hang out! We're going to cruise the Cherry Creek Dog Park :)

6. I'm going to the Springs tonight to see Pro!!! Hooray for impromptu dates :)

7. I ran 7 miles yesterday! Yep. I ran ALL 7 (taking a 30 second break every 2 miles for some H2O) I felt really good about it :) And I'm logging off in a few to hit the gym with Joedes!

8. I am reading the Amber Spyglass - the third installment of His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass series) and all I can think about are the characters/storyline. I even had a dream last night where my sister was a soul-sucking Spector except she could only go through walls where there were Christmas wreaths hanging, otherwise a flower would hit her in the face. Weird. And my brother and I were doing math homework. Real weird.

Anyhoo - RANDOME - I'm off to hit the gym, buy some milk, then curl up with my book til my mama gets here! What a fab Wednesday, y'all! I hope you have a good one, too!

xoxo CHEERS! xoxo

my love for leo grows

Hey hey! 

So, we spent another weekend up in Fort Collins this weekend, enjoying some time with our families. On Saturday night, Tyler and I went to see Inception with my parents. I was naturally stoked to see the movie, because anything with Leonardo DiCaprio is going to be amazing. He is hands down my favorite actor! What a versatile actor with more depth and feeling than many can muster. And he's got a running tally of choosing phenomenal scripts. His latest hits: Shutter Island. The Blood Diamond. The Departed. The Aviator. Catch Me If You Can. Gangs of New York. And that's just in the last 8 years. Anyway, clearly I adore and admire the man.

He certainly did not disappoint in his latest blockbuster! Inception was witty in that Ocean's Eleven way, intense in that Eagle Eye way, and mind-blowing in that Scorsese way. 
 Leo stars as Cobb, a thief whose specialty is stealing important information out of people's minds while they are sleeping {extraction}. He is trying desperately to get his name cleared (the US Government thinks he killed his wife - played eerily by Marion Cotillard), and a powerful businessman (Ken Watanabe) offers him a way to get home free. Cobb must implant an idea into someone's mind {inception}. This has rarely been done before, and in order to complete the task, he must assemble a team of experts. 

Joseph Gordon Levitt (Angels in the Outfield) plays Arthur, Cobb's sidekick, and DAMN he is so hot in this movie! I'm not sure what it was about him, but every time he came on the screen, my jaw just dropped. Looks like crushes never truly go away! Not only is he sexy, his character was SUCH a badass!

Ellen Page joins the team as Ariadne the "Architect", or the person who designs the target's dreams to make them appear real. She is super smart and most definitely keeps up with the boys in this one, even telling DiCaprio off a time or two!

In addition, there is a chemist who puts them in dream state (not to mention the dream within a dream within a dream within a dream state it goes to...yeah, level 4 y'all), a forger who adds some humor to the mix, and Michael Caine plays Cobb's father. The action never stops as this star-studded film amazes from start to finish!

Needless to say, {but I'm saying it anyway} I highly recommend this film!

I want to see it again. 
What are your plans for this afternoon? 
Want to see it with me?

keep on keepin' on!

Hey hey!!! It's the middle of the week and I hope you lovelies are all doing SO fabulous :)

This week has been a nice contrast to last week's craziness. My Monday night shift got canceled, so I only have to work tonight and tomorrow night then I'm done for the week! Two 12 hour shifts and I'm home free, baby :) How different from my five shifts, last week! Goes to show you can never tell when it's going to be busy at work! Those babies are so unpredictable! 

Just wanted to update you on the Half-Marathon far this week I'm 3 for 3 on my workouts! Monday I had my "long run" (6 miles) day, so I ran 5 miles and walked 1 for a total of 6. Yesterday was my leg lifting and abs day - and let me tell you - my butt is soooo sore from that leg press! And my abs are a bit on fire, too! The kind of sore that hurts so good! Today was my "easy run" day (2 miles) and I ran 3 miles and walked 2 for a total of 5. Not too shabby! 

Tomorrow I have good intentions of getting up in the afternoon and doing a good arms/back lifting session, we'll see how that goes ;) I have to say it feels wonderful to be back in the mode of breaking a super sweat every day! The plan to get motivated by this half-marathon is really working so far! Speaking of motivation, while I was running today there were these two ladies chatting in front of my treadmill...with such awesome bodies! They were the athletic yet feminine builds - not super scrawny but not too muscly for their own good. One had the best 6 pack I've seen in a while! So...after my run, where do you think I went? Yep, to the mats to do some ab-work! Haha. We all have to get motivation somewhere, right?

Currently I'm reading the Golden Compass. Tyler and I decided to buy the trilogy His Dark Materials (of which the Golden Compass is the first book) because we watched the Golden Compass the other day, and we were sad to find out that they are no longer making the other two movies of the trilogy due to lower than expected movie sales for the first one. Bummer. And we were so curious about so many things about the movies that we decided we had to read the books to get our answers! They're books I've been meaning to read for a long time, anyways, so I'm excited! Have any of you read these books?

Only two more days til the weekend, y'all!
Cheers to that!

something borrowed & something blue

Well, on Friday I finished The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society, as you know. Saturday I began the next book on my "to read" list - Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. I'd vaguely heard of this book before, but once I started working at my hospital, I noticed that all the nurses always raved about how good it was. So I asked to borrowed it and it's sequel from a friend.

Something Borrowed is written from the perspective of Rachel, the goody two-shoes lawyer in New York who has had a series of lackluster relationships and has always lived in the shadow of her gorgeous best friend, Darcy. On the eve of her 30th birthday, she sleeps with Darcy's fiance, and the book follows her as she tries to get her life back on track. It was a juicy and easy read, a novel that made me laugh, cringe, furrow my eyebrows in worry, and shed a few tears.

The sequel, Something Blue, picks up where the first book left off, but is from Darcy's perspective. She is pregnant, her previously charmed life falling apart before her eyes, and she thinks that uprooting and moving to London will give her the fresh start she needs. She learns to find more to appreciate in life than good looks and a fat bank account, and for once she relies on herself. This novel is a good follow up, and it also evoked a wide range of emotions from me! Especially the waterworks :)

So, if you are looking for some easy reads (read each one in about 8 hours) that get you to think about friendship, following your heart, and trusting yourself, I recommend these two gems!

Have any of you read these books?
What did you think of them?
Do you recommend Giffin's other novels, Baby Proof and Love the One You're With

Cheers, and happy reading!

make that monaayyy!

So, this last week has been crazy crazy busy! I was scheduled to work Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday nights. I worked Sunday night sitting in a room all night with a lively and happily confused patient who enjoyed watching old Saved By The Bell episodes with me and serenaded me with hum-diddly types of songs during the commercial breaks. He slept for 20 minutes total, and kept me busy for the remaining 7 hours and 40 minutes of my shift. He succeeded in changing my mentality that sitting is boring and generally worthless over nights (because the patients usually just sleep, in my experience). Monday night was busy on my floor! Babies flying out left and right. Made the night fly by!

Tuesday I slept for 3 hours after my Monday night shift, then woke up and headed to the Lilith Fair festivities with Manuel, Andrew, and Manuel's sister. It was such a flipping HOT summer day! My tank top was drenched with back's a good thing the demographic that was attending the concert weren't really my type (ie: love the rainbow!). There was free swag area where we walked around and gathered mostly body mists and tampons, but the sweetest part was the free photo booth with color pictures!

My sister, mom, aunt, and cousins showed up and we lounged on the grass basking in the (freakishly hot) sun. The bands opening for the openers were maybe not my favorite...but once the music on the main stage started, we jammed. Anjulie was impressive with her.......... Then there was Ingrid Michaelson, who was charming in an awkward and unenthusiastic way. She did, however, end her set with a rendition of B. Spears's "Toxic", which I loved! Metric was a techno group that I maybe would've been more into if I were in a dark club, but lounging on the grass under the sun with 3 hours of sleep to my didn't rub me the right way. Next was Emmylou Harris...and...I don't really know what to say. Folk music doesn't so much do it for me. I fell asleep then ate some chicken during her set.

Then. 7 hours after we had originally arrived at Lilith. THE Sarah McLachlan graced the stage. Poised over the grand piano she began with, "Spend all your time waiting, for that second chance..."

With that song, all the lackluster performances of the day were wiped from our memories and finally the event was worth our time. She seems just as sweet in person as she does in those "adopt an animal" commercial. SO genuine! But also, more of a rocker than I ever knew! She jammed and rocked and sang and pounded those keys. She played all her classics and only a few of her new songs (let's face it, people go to these concerts to hear the oldies/goodies). It was AWESOME! We left, starstruck, crooning "Building A Mystery" on our way to the car.

Funny thing, work called right before Sarah. They reeeeeally needed me to come into work. Thankfully, I have decided to not drink alcohol until after my Oct. 17th half-marathon, so I was good to go! After the concert, I changed, and jetted off to work for a bonus shift! Cha-ching! Working on 3 hours of sleep ain't no thang, right? lol. Needless to say, Weds I passed out ALL DAY LONG. Worked Weds night again, which was supposed to be my Friday. Thursday morning, before I even left work to go home, they asked if I could come back Thurs night for ANOTHER bonus. I couldn't say no, and thus I ended up working 5 nights as opposed to my usual 3. 

2 bonus shifts = I went Disney movie shopping online. lol. I think you all know by now that I love love love classic Disneys, and around January I decided to start my own little collection. At that time, I bought 10 movies! This week, I bought 7! Aladdin, Lion King, Little Mermaid, Hercules, Pocahontas, Emperor's New Groove, and Oliver & Company. Yep yep yep! Super excited :) With plenty of $ left over from my bonuses for a car payment! Score. 

For those of you who read my blog over the winter, you saw my frustration with all of my shifts getting canceled all the time. Well, baby season is in full swing and I am trying to work as much as I can now, building as much PTO as I can, so that when the babies slow down again this winter, I don't have to be freaking out when my shifts are canceled. That's the plan anyway. 

Hope you all had a GREAT weekend! I spent mine in Fort Collins with the fam. And I hope your Monday is a fresh and fab start to a new week :)


PS - I'm considering doing something like J. Craig or W. Watchers for 3 months or so to help me get over the plateau I am at...
Have any of you done either of these? 
If so - which do you recommend? 
What did you like/dislike about the programs?

Thanks  :)

guernsey literary & potato peel society

Okay, book review time!

Last night I finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society written by a lovely duo of ladies Mary Ann Shaffer and her niece, Annie Barrows. This novel follows Juliet, a writer, in London post WWII as she tries to come up with an idea for her next writing project. She corresponds with and befriends the members of the the Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society, and the reader goes on a little historical journey into what the German Occupation during the war looked like for the islands of the English Channel.

Honestly the book took me a little while (about 100 pages) to get into, but the style of writing kept me intrigued. The book is soley a compilation of letters. There isn't one omniscient voice or the perspective of one character, but the story of the Society and the German Occupation is unraveled from information pieced together from multiple people's letters. It turned out to be quite lovely, and it got me thinking about a time in history I haven't given much thought to lately.

I wouldn't say it's a favorite of mine, but I smiled often throughout it and I was refreshed by the unique writing style. I also found myself wanting to be friends with some of the characters :) A nice book to delve into if you're wanting to forget yourself for 279 pages

That is all!
Have you read this book?
If so - what was your opinion of it?

Happy Friday! - Cheers to that -

5.46 miles

Okay, folks.

Monday was my first official training day for the Rock & Roll Half-Marathon! I went to this website to create a 14-week training program for the half, and it mapped out what I should do each day up til the run. And what do you know - my first day of training was a 6 mile run! Geez! A few years ago I literally ran 5 miles every day for a year. I missed maybe 2 days of running. It was awesome and I felt awesome. Since my running dedication has ceased, I have run around 5 miles maybe a couple of times a month. So 6 miles didn't really scare me.

But I did work last night, and I did work tonight. So that left me with not a lot of time to fit my run in. I slept for 7 hours today, made it to the gym by 4:20 (all proud of myself, since I don't usually go during my work stretches), and then was kinda mad that I didn't have time to finish my run. I finished 5.46 miles before the clock struck 5:30 (which is my last call at the gym before I have to have to leave to go get ready for work). So, while I am kinda bummed I didn't hit the 6 mile mark, I'm happy that I did a great run today. It felt sooooo good and the endorphins have been working in my favor all night long at work!

So there's your update.
Day 1 = success :)

joys & concerns

So, I was thinking about how I have a few things to rant about, but also a few fun things to tell you all about. And the phrase 'joys and concerns' popped into my head. During my junior high and high school youth group years, at the end of each youth group, we went around in a circle and discussed the joys in our lives and also things we're concerned about. So, without further ado...

First, the pity party: I think many of you know that Tyler and I had been really excited to take a trip together to Hawaii. Then, in April his car died and we had to buy a new one. Scratch any chance of a romantic getaway. I felt slightly better because I had a really fun week planned in the middle of July. First, I bought tickets to Lilith Fair, which is playing this Tuesday. I am going with my mom, sister, aunt, and cousins. Totally excited! Then last week I found out that Kelly Clarkson pulled out of Lilith Fair. UGH! Not fair. Pun totally intended. Whatever. So now I know Sarah McLaughlin and Ingrid Michaelson, who will be great, and then there is a slew of other artists that I have never heard of. Effing Kelly. Then the other fun part of this upcoming week was going to be the Rihanna & Ke$ha concert on Thurs. Planning on going with Mandrew - and we were totally ready to rock! But I guess I'll never know how awesome it would have been because Rihanna canceled her concert!!! Not cool! So my supersweet week that I have been looking forward to ALL summer now kind of sucks.
But now, for the fun things that make up for the bummerness of the concert situation. Work was actually superfun last week! It reaffirmed my decision to stay on nights because I LOVE my coworkers :) This weekend was sooooo much fun. Keyan came down Friday night and we went to the Rockies game. It was perfect weather, we witnessed a grand slam, and we won - so all around a great night! Saturday we decided to go to the Sports Column with Keyan, Clint, and Erin to watch the World Cup 3rd place game. Sadly, the bar wasn't full of the rowdy soccer hooligans we had been hoping for, but it was a good game nonetheless! And the bottomless mimosas for $9 didn't hurt! Neither did watching the boys do the jalapeno eating challenge. Haha. They ate a raw jalapeno, waited 5 minutes without drinking anything, then had a tequila shot. And they got a shirt out of the deal :) 

Saturday night was a blast, too! A lot of my nursing coworkers and I went out for a fancy little black dress night! We started at the Rio for some margs and foodstuffs, then we headed to the Champagne Bar. Which I LOVED! At some point someone decided we should tell people it was my bachelorette party because there were 13 of us out! So the shots for the bachelorette and her bridal party started flowing! We followed up with a night of dancing at Suite 200. Overall fab night! And felt stellar today, let me tell you :( Tyler and I have decided to ward of alcohol for the next three months because...A) We are tired of hangovers. and B)...

We signed up for the Rock & Roll Half Marathon! I've always wanted to do a half marathon, and I've been lacking motivation for working out, so I thought this might give me the kick in the pants I need! It sounds like it's going to be fun (is there really a way for running 13.1 miles to be fun?), because at every mile marker, there is a live band rocking out! I figured it will distract me a bit during the run. And after, there is a party at the finish line, so that should be fun too! I've been recruiting people to do it with me, so now I really have to work hard for it, because I don't want to be the one who can't do it! Tomorrow starts my training! I have til October 17th to be ready, and my goal is to finish it in 2hrs 30mins...I'm eager to get it started! And honestly, with all the drinking I did this weekend, I am looking forward for a break from my friend alcohol. He's a bad influence on me and doesn't help my weight loss whatsoever!

I'll keep you posted on my training!

Cheers to your week!

this book = scandalous!

Hay hayyyy! 

I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend! Maybe you are enjoying an extended weekend today :) We had a pretty fun one! We saw Eclipse yesterday with Mandrew - and I have to say, if I could cut out the Bella/Edward scenes then it would be a great movie! I loved the action scenes and always love to see Mr. Lautner without a shirt. I may be the only chick on the planet who thinks this - but I think Edward and Bella have the most dysfunctional awkward relationship EVER, and it makes me gag when they talk to each other. But Dakota fanning made a reprise as the torturous Jane, so that was cool. 

Today we went on a 4-mile walk at the dog park, and the pups are now passed out for what I would presume to be the remainder of the afternoon :) Gryffin played his little heart out in the creek while Penny stood behind us so not to get splashed by mud and sand. 

But what this post is really about is the book I read this weekend. Tyler and I stopped by Barnes & Noble on Saturday night to look through the sales tables. We left with 2 books each and a total of $17 - score! The book I decided to start on is called Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk. Not that I have ever heard of this author, but I saw that his other novels include Fight Club and Stranger Than Fiction, so I decided to check it out. 

The blurb on the inside cover reads:
Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?
So, I knew the book would involve sex and scandal just by reading this, but I thought it was going to be somewhat of a frothy comedy as well. Nope. The first 80 pages or so are pure raunch! If that is even a word. Such hardcore descriptions of things I'm not sure I ever intended to visualize, especially with such detail! But the book actually gave way to a decent plot, Mr. 72 thinks he is the porn star's son and could Mr. 600 be Mr. 72's father? It turns to a plot of love and revenge, with a humorous and surprising twist to finish it off. I would say I recommend this book if you don't mind venturing into the world of pornography - just for 197 pages. But if you're easily offended or shy about sex, leave this one alone.

I probably should not have even admitted to you all that I read this, because now you all think I'm some skanky sex addict who reads "literature" like this on a regular basis. Not so. But I do like to be open-minded, and I sure learned some things I didn't know before reading this little book!

Cheers :)

new shoes alert!

Okay so I am SUCH a dork - but I am SO excited about my new shoes for work! I always wore my tried & true Nikes to work...which were comfortable but not okay. Not okay because it's pretty gross to work in a hospital and wear your work shoes around to other places. There's a lot of crap on the floor of a hospital and I really wanted shoes JUST for work. I had been eying Danskos for a while. They're a very popular brand of shoe in the nursing community, and in any other profession where you spend long hours on your feet. They are reputed to be sooooo comfortable! But the price tag of $120 kept me waiting. Last night, however, I was asked to work a bonus shift! Time and 1/2 plus bonus pay!!! Wahoo! What do I do? Instead of saving the money...I immediately went out and bought my very own pair of fancy pants shoes for work! I LOVE them! I got the leopard print ones and they really were comfortable last night (even with two blisters on my feet from all the running I did yesterday)! So here are the new beauties:

I love the leopard print because when you wear scrubs (black pants + wine tops) all the time at work, there's not much room for flair. I do my best with earrings and headbands, but these shoes are FAB! 

Okay, that's all! Just sharing my new joy!!!

Cheers :)
