The Holiday is Over. I'm back blogger friends!

Vern!
Break - schmeak. My blogger 'holiday' was full of activities - not quite the break I had in mind, but still fun nonetheless. During my brief absence I.......

- Traveled to Seattle for my Sister's surprise 50th birthday part and surprise engagement!

- Sick in bed for 5 days (misery)

- My oldest girlfriend Veronica (we met in the military in 1992) flew up from Cali for a 4 day whirlwind of a trip full of wine tasting and shopping.

- Mexican dinner party with Mr. C, Veronica, Shasta and dear friends John & Eric

- Hit 2 estate sales and 15 thrift stores (major eBay scores.....wow)

See what I mean? You think you're making time and you just end up filling it with something else. The holiday was great, but I did miss all of my blogger friends, and I feel 'out of the loop' on stuff. Did I have any great inspiring thoughts while on holiday? Yes - actually. I'm mid project on redoing my bar, and I came up with my Spring style inspiration (more on that later).

Iggy Pop Action Figure. Bleh.

TRAUMATIC TOY ALERT:
During my holiday I had to endure the dreaded trip to Toys R Us. 'Dreaded'... because the fluorescent lights seem to suck out all of your energy, and it's usually full of either screaming kids or parents overcompensating with elaborate gifts. As I wandered through the aisles (and losing my energy with each fluorescent lit step) I about fell over when I saw this STRUNG-OUT-ANOREXIC action figure of IGGY POP.

Iggy Pop ACTION figure? What kind of action? Huh, what? Do kids really play with this and think it's fun? I don't get it, and it actually freaks me out. As odd as it was, it did make the entire Toys R Us trip entertaining (and surprising). Iggy Pop...who knew?

More tomorrow.

xoxo

Hey, nice to have you back! You HAVE been busy on your "break".
That Iggy Pop figure is hilarious - my kids wouldn't even know who he is, he's a bit of a niche toy, I would say!
Have a great weekend. xxxxx

Can't wait to see what you scored and welcome back. It sounds like a fun yet busy break. That Iggy Pop would give me nightmares but I love the song and video he did with PEACHES!

Aw! Glad you're back!

I don't even know who Iggy Pop is...I guess I'll have to Google him later.

And your sister got engaged? That's awesome! :)
