You cheated on me? When I specifically asked you not to?

Sorry. Tim and I have been on a major "Office" kick ever since we got the Season 4 DVD set. We're gearing up for next week's season premiere like woah. Have you seen the previews? Oh my. If not, go to Office Tally, the one-stop place for all your "Office" needs. What's going to happen to Ryan? My guess is he'll end up back in Scranton sooner or later...they won't let him go...I'm thinking they'll just demote him back to sales. That would be punishment enough, right? haha And Dwight and Angela and Andy...hate to say it (well, not really) but Andy is really growing on me. I didn't really care for him at first, but I think I kinda like him now. Michael...oh my, Holly is PERFECT for him! I really love her character...I hope she sticks around. Although, I'll miss the Michael/Toby dynamic. And many of you think that that really is Michael's baby and she's just in denial?? That's my hunch. But most of all...Jim and Pam...I cannot tell you enough how much I love them and if they break them up or something stupid like that I will be livid. For real.

Anyways, the new Mojo challenge premiered today! Use Cirque du Soleil as your inspo and include sequins. The prize is a kit from the brand new kit club Crop Suey! How cool is that name? Makes me chuckle every time I read it, haha. Due the 30th of Sept. You can find all the details on the Mojo blog.

Here's my take...I wasn't really familiar with Cirque du Soleil...I mean, I had heard about it here and there, but that's it, so I was a little apprehensive at first. Then I went to the website. Total rich, dark, vibrant colors going on over there! Decided to go with that, which was a bit of a departure for me from usual style or whatever you want to call it. It was fun though...challenging, but still fun. I used lots of vintage and thrifted goodies...ribbon and floweres from Goodwill...small trinket charms from the flea market (notice the clown's face in the thingy in the middle of the buckle). So happy that I had this photo of me and Tim from our friends' wedding...the colors were perfect!

And because I've been promising it...some room pictures! Of course, things may change some more, but here it is!Pardon the not so perfect lighting...I know in some of the photos it looks a little greenish. Still trying to figure out the light in here...which has not been fun with my layouts and other crafty things...I've got to find the perfect place to photograph them and I don't want to start getting in the habit of going outside to do it. Won't work so well in the winter with all the snow and ice.

Oh, and yep...that's THE quilt! I had emailed Urban Outfitters to see if they knew if they were going to be restocking the quilt, to which they said, "No, sorry". Still, I saved the item link in my favorites and kept checking it every day just hoping that they were wrong. On the night before moving day, I checked again and the picture of the quilt was back up on the item page. It had disappeared when it was out of stock. So, I frantically hit the "Check Availability" button and lo and behold...IN STOCK! I had to transfer the money from savings, but I bought it right then and there. I wasn't chancing it again. It was out of stock by the next morning again. Popular item. It's so much more beautiful in really is perfect...and it's sooo soft and warm. Of course, I don't dare use it for anything but to look pretty on the bed. Yep, every night I fold it up and place it safely in the corner, haha. So, that goes to show, if you find an item you love on, keep checking it. It may pop up again one day. :)

That's all for now! Off to do some laundry...hope everyone is well!

Love the layout, and your room looks great! So glad you got the quilt, don't you love it when the world shines on you like that sometimes?

PS-And yes, taking pics of layouts in the winter would not be good, though I've been tempted in the past, haha...
