Pinteresting Wednesday: Travel Wish List

Linking up with The Vintage Apple again this Wednesday to share some pins.  I love, love, love to travel, and though my ideal vacation is anywhere that is warm with a beach, I love to see new places and always want to go somewhere new.  I've been lucky enough to go to quite a few fabulous spots but still have plenty on my list of places I would like to go.  Here are just a few of the major destinations I haven't been to yet.

Absolutely #1 on my list is Tahiti.  I think it might be for our 10th wedding anniversary.  We'll see if I can stop shopping so much and save the cash for it in the next 2 1/2 years.

Can you believe I have never been to New York?  Chicago, check.  Los Angeles, check.  Philadelphia, check.  No New York.  It's heart breaking.

The husband and I really want to go to Maine and were sorry it didn't work out this summer.  Maybe next summer.  I'm not sure why he wants to go but I just want to go to eat lobster. 

Paris.  Of course.

San Fransisco.  I know several people that have gone lately and it looks and sounds fantastic.

Grateful for Tuesday

This isn't my usual type of post but can't help thinking how lucky I am to be safe and warm and to have a home that has electricity (and to have a space heater in my office).  Hearing about the immensity of this storm, and how many people it is affecting, is mind boggling.  It certainly helps to put things in perspective.

My heart goes out to anyone who is suffering today.

Outfit Inspiration: Trail Running & An Old Navy Sale

We are leaving this weekend for a vacation to Arizona.  I'm hoping to do some trail running and hiking (on a relatively flat trail with no bears or mountain lions). 

I'm already mentally packing and may need to get some great new workout gear.  Does anyone else make last minute purchases before a getaway?  I like Old Navy's active line and some of the pieces are currently on sale online plus you can get an additional 25% off online with the code ONTRICK.

Here is an example of what I think I'll be wearing most of time during the day of our trip (with the exception of these exact shoes, although these might be fabulous I don't know, I just thought they were cute).

Friday Shopping Wish List: Fancy and Sparkly

This Friday I'm linking up with long distance loving for Friday's Fancies.

I'm dreaming of gorgeous sparkly dresses and fancy parties, both of which I have none of, but it is fun to dream.  Maybe I could just crash other people's fancy parties? 

This is a somewhat affordable way to get some sparkle.  The dress is on sale for $56 and since it is from Kohl's you know you could get it cheaper with a coupon.  I love it!  I especially love that it has sleeves.  It seems like most fancy dresses are sleeveless and that just doesn't work well with Indiana winters.  Hmm...maybe I should start crashing parties further south?

Fancy Night Out

Tory Burch Private Sale Starts Today!

Closet Design Inspiration

Lately I have seen some amazing closets on pinterest.  I mean, these aren't normal people closets.  These are unbelievable closets.  I think some ideas could be taken from them though and incorporated into a regular size closet space.

Decorating with Oxblood

That sounds kinda creepy doesn't it?  I don't mean decorating with actual blood from oxen but rather decorating with the hot color of the moment, oxblood.  I'm a huge fan of burgundy and the color they call oxblood (a deep brownish-red) so I already have it as an accent color in my living room.  It's in the area rug and pillows.  Here are some other ways to bring this gorgeous color into your home.
