Banksy in Detroit!!!




Jon, my brother, and myself all went to see Exit Through the Gift Shop last night. The movie was AMAZING! I wanted to see it when it came out, especially because we were going to pre-screen it at work, but I just didn't have time with getting ready for the cruise.

The movie was clever, funny, political, thought-provoking...all of the things I love in a story.

So, it was a great time and we all enjoyed it. Well, then I pick up the Metro Times and read that Banksy has been hitting various US cities over the past few weeks with his art; Detroit included!

It turns out most of the stuff from Detroit has already been destroyed or taken, but there was still one up in Warren, not too far from where I live! So I went driving down Van Dyke, thinking I'd really have to look hard for it. And there it was! Right there on Van Dyke, facing the street!

Yes, I'm an art geek, but it was really exciting to me! It was like the rush that I assume most people get when they see a celebrity. Me? I get turned on by some paint on a wall.

Vacation Withdrawal

So, I'm still going through a bit of vacation withdrawal. Although reality is starting to set in as I go back to work tomorrow. I want to wake up to the ocean every morning! Gah!!!

Here are some outfit posts from Sunday and today. One nice thing about being home is having my whole closet to choose from when getting dressed. Living out of a suitcase is never fun.





















Here is our lovely family picture with Jon, myself, and our new daughter. Don't we make a beautiful family? It's a bit hard to get together all of the time though seeing as Miss-E has to live in the water. We do our best to make it work.





The Breakdown:

Outfit 1:

Black Button Shirt: H&M
Skirt: Gap, Thrifted
Tights: H&M

Guess what?!? I got my She & Him tickets in the mail today!! Yay! Yay! Yay!

WOW! Cruising is the way to go!

I'm back from my vacation! The cruise was unbelievable! The weather was great, the ocean was beautiful, and the boat was incredible. Now that I'm home I'm a bit disappointed that I don't have free snacks around every corner and I can't just use the hot tub at 4AM. However, I am back with my kitties, so that does make me happy. Now it's time for an overload of pictures.

I have never had to change so many times in one day before! I had to change my clothes at least 3 times a day for a week.

It was such an amazing vacation! I still feel like I'm walking on a boat even though I'm now on land.
