Style File 6-25-12

Well... My Vlog is turning out to be sort of a pain. I'm not very good at editing so I need to shoot one that isn't in need of a ton of editing.'ll likely need to happen post-vacation. I know that's a bummer, but that's the way my life is right now. I have been trying though. :( But! I have a style file for you. The new place has some cool places to get outfit pics, so I'm really excited about that. This one features Louisianna, because she needed a walk and it was really good lighting for a shoot... Enjoy!

 So, you know I like dresses... well I like dresses even more in the summer. I'm on the go more, and dresses are easy. Grab one, grab some shoes, maybe a belt and some earrings and out you go! Plus...they're way cooler (as in temperature) than jeans are!

 I just picked up these espadrilles a couple weeks ago and I'm not sure why these are my first pair ever. I mean... they're so comfortable, even though they don't look it. My back definitely doesn't hurt after wearing these like it does after a day in stilettos. On that note, I didn't walk very far in these ;) and I don't recommend navigating loose gravel on railroad tracks in them. Just sayin'.
 This is my sock bun. I managed to get it perfect this time, as in the pony tail wasn't too tight so my head didn't hurt at the end of the day. It was supppperrr humid on this day, so I did have a lot of crazy fly-aways but my hair was up off my neck and that's what counts!
 It was hot. Could you tell?

Dress: target
Sunnies: Target, like two years ago
Espadrilles: DSW
Belt: H and M (I think?)

Vlog- Delayed

Ok, just so you know, I have filmed my vlog TWICE but neither time I liked it. And can I also say that video editing is brutally difficult? It is. I have no idea what I'm doing. So I'm going to try filming something again today that require minimal editing of my stupid comments. Ha. It'll go up on monday! Promise! :)

Sneak Peek: The New Place

 Well! After a whirl wind weekend, we moved to the new place! We picked up the keys on Friday night and brought over some small stuff in the cars. Saturday morning we woke up bright and early to bring stuff over and then loaded up the UHaul. With the help of some awesome friends, we were able to return the truck by 2pm and started unpacking. I was shocked at how fast the unpacking went; we were pretty much done on Sunday evening. Brad and I both took the day off yesterday to finish up some odds and ends (books in book cases, for example), work on homework, and recover. We were so tired and so sore. I think the next move we are hiring movers. It was brutal. I have many bruises! But we are here. I am so ready to start on some of the (many) projects we have to make this place ours.
Here's a sneak peek of our living room! I plan on doing a Vlog tour and posting it later this week. As you can see, the living room is mostly put together. Most spaces are put together, but need some help getting settled. Especially our bedroom... it's gigantic and we just don't have enough stuff! ha! Never thought I would say that!

So far, we love it here. It's a great location for a lot of things, so far its a lot quieter, and just in general a better place. We are down a workout center (bummer), but I did go run outside this morning. Thankfully we're at the point in summer when it's light out at 5:45am. But we will need to get Y memberships (which I am looking forward to.Yoga classes!). My run was great this morning. I have sort of felt like I'm on vacation since we moved..haha. My run this morning definitely felt like it. There's something about running in a new place that is just so energizing and different. I've only felt it on runs during vacation (like in Boston Garden, for example). Maybe only runners will understand that. Our new Master bedroom is gigantic with a huge vanity so it makes it feel like a hotel, which  adds to my feeling of vacation. I'm sure as things settle into normal it'll feel less like vacation. Or maybe not and my quality of life will simply improve! ha! One can hope.

Speaking of being on vacation... I am not actually on vacation and need to go to work. Off to the shower! Have a great Tuesday and be looking for a Vlog and a DIY project list coming soon.

Instagrams and and Update

I see these pretty flowers every day on my way to the workout room. I love the colors.
Louisianna waits very patiently at dinner just to see if she's going to get any of our food.

Sometimes...this is what happens when we're packing.

Carnival at Mount Trashmore! This is from the top of the "Mountain".

Beautiful sunset on our walk with the dog last week.

It's a very difficult life, being a dog.

Ok. So. We are moving this weekend. I'll definitely put up a tour of the new place once we're in and settled. I also have plans to document several DIY projects that we have planned: refinishing the dressers and night stand, refinishing the dining room table, and painting a couple rooms. Who knows when we'll paint; that may not be until December. ha! But I do have a couple interior decorating things that I'd like to do and I'll be sure to keep you updated on those.

I also have a couple recipes to share with you.

And we're going to London, Paris, and Rome in THREE AND A HALF WEEKS. I will also be posting about that. :)

Lots to look forward to over here with Team Boyce.
