Blue Bangles & Maddie

After a day of hard work and a nice workout at the gym, I was so excited to come home, drink some ice water and sit back and blog about my birthday party on Saturday night with my friends. However, my computer decided to stop turning on and thus I have no access to my images as of this moment. Ugh!

The silver lining is that I instead spent the evening with my good friend Ian from high school who now lives in Dubai with his fiancee, who I also finally met. It was fun to sit with someone I've known since age 14 and hear him tell me about the world from his years of travel he's done since we graduated. He has travelled to India, Dubai, Thailand, Russia (etc. etc). He was telling me all about his new life and the wonders and travesties he has seen. So interesting because the majority of our hangout time years ago was centered around insulting one another on the drive home from school.

So since I can't load pictures tonight from my birthday, I wanted to show this picture from last weekend of my dog, Maddie, and Me.

No not because my dog is the cutest thing in the world... but because I wanted Holly at 504 Main to see me wearing what I won from her!

She said she was sending me something stylish... and boy did she ever. Those blue bangles? From her! Love them!!! Thank you Holly! And for your awesome wedding book.

Anyway, I'm on a loaner comp so I'm not sure how this formatting all looks. But have a great Thursday! I will post the rest of my birthday pics as quickly as I can!

Thanks again Holly!

Sorry about your comp - I know how frustrating that is!

My computer conked out the other day so I had to rush to the Apple store yesterday to get a replacement! Hope yours gets sorted out soon.

Your doggy is sooo cute! Also, I wish I could pull off short hemlines the way you do. I think they LOOK great, but I feel uncomfortable when I'm bending over, sitting, getting in and out of a car, etc. How do you cope with it?! Could you write a 'how to wear mini skirts and keep your dignity' post for all of us who aren't pros at it like you? :D

Pretty bangles! And what a bummer about your computer, I hope you're able to get on today!
That's really neat about your friend, I feel like traveling the world changes people for the better, and their perspective on life.

Take care.

I'm sorry to hear about your computer problems! I actually have to rotate between two because one won't let me upload pictures; the other one sounds like an airplane. LOL! It's frustrating!

You look awesome. I love how vibrant those bangles are!

I recently caught up with a friend who was in the Peace Corps. His life is so crazy! It's really cool that your friend and his fiancee have been around the world as much as they have! I'm jealous!

Such a cute dog! And you look gorgeous as ever!

Fabulous bangles, first of all, they really pop out!
I think it is fantastic when people really grab the chance and travel the world. It is such a precious thing to do and I feel like I know so little about all the fantastic places on earth ( I have mainly travelled Europe). Your friend must have really broadened his horizon! And so good to meet up with someone from your teenage years :)
