in which i procrastinate

I'll be leaving for China tomorrow (very excited) with my hub. We'll be there for a week and a half and then it's off to Thailand for 4 days to celebrate our 3rd (!) anniversary.
There is much to be done today, don't ask me why I'm sitting here drinking my latte and writing this post.
So I'm just going to leave you with a few random things and thoughts:

-This house is one of the my favorites (if not my very favorite) I've seen. It has pretty much everything I love as far as design elements go. Open layout, lots of white, lots of wood, so much creativity. If you read about everything they've done in the house, it is RIDICULOUS. (in a good way. But almost in a way that makes you jealous of their ambition because unfortunately you lack the ambition to do the same in your own home). Check it. (I just said "check it". Haha.)

-I'm excited about reading a lot on vacation. I never allow myself time to read. I have four books I'm taking with me (at least).

-This picture from the Sartorialist disproves the "less is more" statement and the rules they make about wearing only one statement piece. Okay, sometimes less really is more, but in this case, I'm really glad she wore giant earrings and giant necklaces and giant rings. It just plain works.

-Also excited to catch up on sleep.

-This could be the coolest thing I've ever seen. I exaggerate, but still. Look closely. Aha!

-Maybe I'll even write some letters while I'm gone. You can't beat the feeling of getting a good old fashioned hand-written letter in the mail. Especially if it's pretty.

-I should really get packing. I only have to find a way to only pack 30 pounds of luggage. Like toiletries and shoes and everything. 30 pounds. For two weeks. Hum. This should be interesting. I'll let you know if I just give up and stay home.

-Any good music suggestions for my lovely 16-hour flight?

Hope you have a delightful day!
