Things To Look Forward To: Moving, Lenka, and Santa Fe

It feels good to have a post with this title, dontcha think?
Here are some things happening in my neck of the beach.

+We move in two weeks, and I'm looking forward to unclogging our lives! My love for small, cute items does not come in handy when organizing a household. Things I can see from my desk:
- dog, monkey, and owl paperweights. None of them are weighing down paper.
- a fabric elephant hanging out next to a fabric squirrel
- four calendars, two wall, one desk, and one mini with its own stand
- two Japanese erasers with bears on them
- two polka dots bags, one blue, one red
- green leopard print pencils that have never been used
- a postcard with a bunny saying "hello". This was not intended to be sent or received.
You get the point. I love pretty, cute STUFF. I actually find I am happier having pretty things around me, and this is why I'm drowning in fabric elephants and leopard print pencils. So my goal is to trash any pens that don't work, recycle scraps of paper from my art box, donate *gulp* any books I don't want to the library...sigh. Wish me luck.

+I'm seeing my girl crush, pop music sweetheart Lenka, with the boy. You'll most likely have to suffer through some of my outfit decisions so I can look my best for her.

Ah Lenka, so incredibly cute and bubbly. I can't wait for the show!

If I had a music video, it would totally have dancing stethoscopes too.

+I'm bracing myself for a difficult quarter of school and long hours at work, BUT in a few months it will be summer, my favorite season!
To celebrate our 1 year anniversary and my 28th year at the end of June, we reserved a hot air balloon ride and a bed and breakfast in Santa Fe. I am so excited! 

What are you looking forward to?

A hot air balloon ride?! I'm so jealous! That's my "dream date", ha! Plus I see them flying around here in Switzerland ALL the time (well, when it's warm)!
That's exciting about Lenka, and moving, too! So many good things to look forward to. : )

What a fun trip! I lived in Albuquerque for five years and spent lots of time in Santa Fe... I am always recommending New Mexico for a laid-back, mellow, drop-dead beautiful vacation. Enjoy!

Brandi {not your average ordinary} said...

You have so many exciting things coming up, Mo! Good luck with the move! (You'll have to let me know where you're going.) And that trip to Santa Fe sounds perfect. Right now, I'm looking forward to starting a silkscreening class on Tuesdays!

Santa Fe is gonna be so amazing. I'm in the process of putting together a New Mexico tour for some French clients and I am drooling over all of it!

Stacey said...

Ooo, how did I not know about Lenka? I'm off to iTunes now...

Mo said...

@Maggie: I may have to pick your brain for recommendations!

@Stacey: You'll love her Stacey, she's so cute and always puts me in a good mood. Plus, her other videos have these cute puppets in them. Adorable!

I really loved Santa Fe when L and I drove through on one of our cross country trips. It's so beautiful and vibrant! You will have a blast. Is it really almost your one year? OMG!!

i don't usually like people's music suggestions but i REALLY liked this music video! thanks for bringing her to my attention. i'm definitely going to look further into lenka!

Mo said...

@very married: Huzzah for another Lenka convert!
Her album from 2008, The Show, is super happy and catchy. I'm a fan of Trouble is a Friend and The Show, but really the whole album is worth a listen.
Her new album is being released later this month. :)
