Rockin it!

First I have to say ...

This girl knows how to rock pumps!

Her name is Ana White.

She is my hero.

I mean, like who could build stuff and look like that? Really?

Well she does!

She even stands all cute like that... geez...

But don't be fooled by her adorable tool belt and purple pumps.

 This girls got skills!

She was the brains behind Maddy's storage bed and my foot bench.

Mad building skills I tell ya!

I soooo wanna be cool like her but for some reason...

My coolness gets lost somewhere behind my goofball nature and my unwillingness to wear heels.

(and just for the record)

I did wear something other than this green dress all weekend.

see...goofball nature

Then it happened.

Haven was over.

I felt lost. Kinda like the morning after Christmas.

Already counting down the days till our next.

Till then,

We toured Atlanta!

Our first stop was the Coke museum.

I was that close to the secret recipe.

Cool art

And a chance to taste a ton or drinks from around the world.

Do NOT drink the Beverly. trust me!

But nothing compares to the real deal...

    Oh..and Ana does have some skills...and she def can rock out a pair of heels. I can build..but not in heels! Oy'! :) When I get my latest project posted you'll def have to come check it out...I built a window seat in my dining room, and it's almost done! woo hoo!! :)
    Love ya girlie!

  3. Ana and her heels... oh my that girl is beautiful!! Her session was so fun too! I can not believe I didn't see you! I probably did and didn't even realize it was you. I think after day two it was all a blur of names and faces. Haven was a great time for sure!

  4. I soooooooo wanna go to Haven next year.. I'd love to meet you and so many other bloggers that i've admired now for a while. And the coke factory sounds so cool.
    Ana White -- I never look that good when Im building something,, and I'd for sure break a leg if I tried it in pumps. But she does her projects.

  5. That Ana White is super fab! She rocks the pumps while building things, meanwhile I'm usually falling on things in flip-flops while asking my husband to build something.

    I missed her session - did she gives tips on being fabulous?

Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist.
