I hate my internet connection...

We've been having to deal with a shoddy internet connection here at Chez Dee. I've been working a lot so I haven't really cared, until tonight, when I got the night off and I was looking forward to some internet goodness. It's up and running now but who knows for how long. The upside? Well, I've been goofing around on Photoshop as evidenced above. Fun, fun, fun!

4 simple goals (before 2011)

I was inspired by Elsie's post on making 4 simple goals and blogging about them so you are more encouraged to accomplish them. Here are mine:

1. Finish up our apartment- I moved in with the beau in April and our apt still looks like I moved in last week. The kitchen, bathroom and laundry area are complete but the living/dining room area looks like hurricane Dee passed through-more like hurricane Dee's wardrobe-there are clothes everywhere. I need to take an entire day and sort through clothes, stuff them in our little closet and then our home will look like a home again.

2. Start my new exercise routine- I'm usually pretty good about this, I actually enjoy exercising but this summer has been nuts and I've pushed health and fitness to the side. Well, no more! I need to start moving, shaking, doing something physical as soon as possible.

3. Play my guitar more often- I'm in the process of learning to play guitar from the beau and he's very patient with me but I don't practice nearly as much as I should. As soon as I get better, he wants us to start writing music together. I would love to do that, so I need to get my act together.

4. Draw more. I'm no artist but I enjoy drawing simply for the therapeutic and creative aspect. I don't draw masterpieces but when I finish drawing something that resembles any shape, it feels amazing.

Do you have any simple goals that you'd like to share? I'll try to share the progress with the ones I mentioned. xo

All about sequins...

Hey! Remember me? I totally fell off the face of the earth, sorry about that. I guarantee it was all due to good things happening at Chez Dee!

I love me a good fashion blog and therefore I am a huge fan of Jane Flanagan and her ReadyMade blog, Off the Rack, and was so pleased when she helped me out with a style inspiration question I had with a sweet skirt I got from Urban for really cheap. Check it out!

Soooo glad it's Friday! This may be my only day off for the next two weeks so I'm gonna take a hold of this day and squeeze it for all it's worth! xo
