Interesting Weekend

So, we had a busy little weekend...went to a wedding and an art fundraiser for the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (used to chair this event)... went to the Interpol concert at the Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa...which totally rocked. They kill live.

And, Sunday we were invited to an opening of a new restaurant/bar called Cafe Nova for brunch. We know two of the owners and the GM. Another co-owner happens to be Jean-Paul from the last Bachelorette show...which I promise I do and did not watch. So, Jean-Paul actually welcomed us and shook our hands, etc. He is pretty handsome, but whatever...Bachelorette Schmatchelorette. I guess he has wheeler dealed himself into a tv reality show called The Entreprenuer...again, whatever. Although, I hope I'm filmed when we go there for drinks sometimes. It is kind of cool, cause it will get Oklahoma City some attention.

While we were having our little tapas snacks, my husband nudges me and says don't look, but we are having brunch with Wayne Coyne and his wife Michelle (they were actually sitting across the room). Wayne is the lead singer of The Flaming Lips. J.D. talked to him when Wayne lost his way to the bathroom. He has met him several times though. So, another reason why it is cool to be us. Just kidding. It was fun and is a great new place to hang out...very swank.


I swear I'm not a crazy reality tv person!

I don't watch a lot of this stuff, but I do HAVE to tune in to America's Next Top Model and that Rockstar INXS show. Those aren't necissarily "real" people, more fantasy, so it's more interesting to me. I have to admit I was a little torn between JD (left) and Marty (right) of who should have one Rockstar INXS. JD annoyed me at first...I saw right through him with his cocky little "I'm a cutie that wears too much eyeliner" attitude...he turned himself around though, because he sure could perform and the girls apparently think he's pretty cute. I liked Marty because he was so soulful and emotionally into it, but I really could picture JD more fitting in with the band. Initially I thought Mig, little Mig (center), would win because he was dramatic and was Australian, but in the end, he kind of lost it. He was too broadway. So, yeah for INXS...I hope they succeed with Mr. JD. It was interesting and by the way, Dave Navaro is a freakshow and I wanna look like Brooke Burke...gorgeous bitch. ugh!


Random Pug and Other Doggie Cuteness!

I found this drawing on www.husker-doo.com ...great illustrator...and of course the pug caught my eye. I want one of these to hang on my wall. Love it.



Check it out...just ordered this A.B.S. from Bluefly...this very well could be my hot little red dress that I'm to wear to The Girlie Show. We have to doll ourselves up you know. It's red with tiny white polka dots...a little retro and a little classy too. My shoes are very much as hot as the dress and they are a turquoise blue pump with a bow on the peep toe.

I had a "just in case" shopping day with a girlfriend of mine on Saturday and found a striped Betsey Johnson that was awesome, but ended up with a one that matches the shoes in a round about way. I think it's a 9 West. I tried on so many dresses it wasn't even funny. It's black with different color blue dots and happens to have the same top stucture as the red one. I can always take one back when I decide which to wear...or I could be a bad girl and keep both...oops. I've gotta start saving for our Italy trip next year...better send one back.

Oh, by the way...as I'm bringing up The Girlie Show...our new glam web-site is up...you must check it out...and there are a few pics of me on there as well.

The Girlie Show's fabulous new web-site...Do you love it?


Guess where I'm goin' end of the month...Interpol concert at The Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa. Whoo Hoo. I haven't been to a concert since The Sounds...that's been at least a year ago...yikes. Flossy P, I'll have to wear one of my buttons to see if they recognize it from when they were eyeballing the one you wore to their concert in Australia- ha! Can't wait!


Funny Ha Ha!

Now that I'm a "crocheter", I feel like I can share this with you...I "borrowed" this from the Bits&Bobbins blog a while back...love it... and isn't she wonderful?

In case you can't read it...it says, " Enid, for the love of God, put that crochet hook DOWN!".

I think I've decided to take a break for a while on all the Swap thingys. I have loved doing the knitting swap partner and cd swap, but I will maybe do that once a year or something. It's taking away from my other things in life, cause when I do something I go all out and put way too much into it...it starts to take over.

With The Girlie Show as top priority, besides my husband, dog, and work going on, I'm learning to focus a little bit better on committing to only a few things and not saying yes to everything which tends to make me overextend myself. It feels good not to have so much on my plate...as if all those things aren't committment enough. This year I've decided to: give up chairing an art event, donating art to fundraisers, having a booth at events and volunteering anywhere. I've given a lot of energy and time over the years...now it's time to focus on me. It takes a lot of effort being me you know? It's exhausting.

I need to get focused and get back to work on my knitting projects. I forgot to mention that I had finished my One Skein Wonder, but need to take photos to proove it how cute it turned out. That's coming soon. It felt so good to finish that.

Things I want to work on this fall (maybe this will actually make me do these things if I tell the world): Painting the dining room and hanging our new light fixtures, finish painting the guest bedroom, have a garage sale, start my little top- secret business, do landscaping on the house, work on knitting projects, spend more time with my little family, work on my friendships and just take it easy on myself. There is much much more I could have on this list, but that's too much work to write it all down here. I am a list person, so don't think this isn't written down somewhere else. This should get me started for sure and maybe motivate me a little.


Loving This!

I loves me some gnomes!Of course one of my favorite movies is Amelie and my family surprises me every now and then with a gnome at my front door. I just think they are awesome in general. How cute is this little family! The guest house we stayed at in Austria had these in the garden...they posed for me to get this shot. I thought about taking the whole lot with me back to the states, but that's not good juju, so they stayed for others to enjoy. I couldn't find a one to buy...you would think they would be everywhere as souvenirs, but no. My favorite gnome at home got his cap broken and needs to be glued back on before he goes back into the weather. That's is his ugly mug below.

This is him before he broke the tip off his cap.


Super Model of the 30's

This is Renee Perle, a fashion model from the 1930's. These photos do not look like they are from the 30's...how bizarre. She is absoutely gorgeous. I want my hair to look like that...I want to look like that period. I love these photos!

Even wearing a stylish tee and dark nails.

A Ralph Lauren ad from the 1930's...of course I'm kidding....isn't she just gorgeous?
