I fink U freeky and I LOVE you a lot!

Do you ever find yourself so happy that you can barely contain your bliss?  I don't feel like I have ever been this connected to so many wonderful people in my entire life. It's an electric feeling charging me to my very core and I just want to love everybody!
This weekend was full of all the things that make life worth living.  I had a chance to hang out again with my newest friend Cristi of Kiss Me Kitty.  I about died when she gave me another pair of leggings that she made just for me!  They are so comfy ~kinda like being nekked.
 Aren't these hearts all kinds of adorable and totally me?!?!
Not to mention this Hello Kitty sweater I just found at Marshalls for $15.  I think it's left over from the Olympics.  Yah I'll take that!
 We went out for tacos and did a bit of thrift shopping and talked for hours.  I have found a real kindred spirit and feel blessed to have her and so many other wonderful people in my life.
  Another amazing part to my weekend was going shopping with my friends daughter Brianna and helping her pick out a dress for her winter formal.
 I think I enjoyed this experience more than she did.  Isn't she beautiful!
Look at that smile, she's such a good kid!  I even made some jewelry for some special people, but I can only show you one:)
I spent sometime downtown at Cargo, an import store that has all kinds of treasury from all over the world.
 I am in rainbow Heaven!

 I was so good and bought nothing just enjoyed looking, I'm getting better at window shopping.
Beads galore!
 These flowers are for each and every one of you that takes the time to visit my blog.
I LOVE YOU with every fabric of my being!!!

How did you get out of that store w/o buying anything?? You are gooood! Brianna looks stunning. I absolutely love party dress shopping :)) You look great in the new leggings and sweater-- lucky you-- new stuff and a totally fun day with a friend-- nothing better.

Cristi said...

OK, I think I just peed my pants this morning when I saw you looking so amazingly cute-you are my muse!;) OMG, that is the perfect outfit and I am over the moon looking at you...knew that fabric was made for you!

Many of the gals here make the coolest stuff, so we all know the supreme pleasure of seeing it in action-gives the heart a little lift! I'm grinning ear to ear.

It was a such great day, I am still full of happiness and am so lucky to have you as a friend!!! Meeting kindred spirits is like water in the desert, rare and life giving!!!;)

Wow, you had a productive weekend. All that color?? Are you sure you weren't in another country this weekend? Oh yeah, Krista has her own country. ;)
How does your friend make tights? They are so darn cute. Did she sew them?
I definitely would have picked out that sweater for you if I'd seen it. Purrrrrfect.
You guessed the necklace: XXXXXXX
(hear the wrong guess buzzer?)

I love you too !!! Thank you for starting our week in such a positive and powerful way!I really need to surround me with the right kind of people in real life, I feel like I could have so much to give and to share, but unfortunately I'm not in Portland and there aren't like minded friends around! I 'm sure one day we're going to meet!
The Hello Kitty sweater is so cute and I love Cristi's creations!!You always look stunning and so does Brianna, her hair color is wonderful!!
I love you more than Die Antwoord!

I'm feeling the love, Krista, feeling it all the way over here! What a gorgeous, colourful post, full of friendship and fun and fabulous you!
The leggings Cristi made for you are perfect, so very you, and that first pic of you is just joyful. Hurray for making new pals!
Brianna is beautiful, how great to go shopping with her. I bet you were giddy as anything with excitement!
All the pics of your shopping trip are brilliant, so much to look at. I need to get better at window shopping...
Thanks for the flowers, darling - I love them. And YOU! xxxxxxxx

Annie said...

I know what you mean, I feel very blessed right now too.

Your outfit is so cute. The leggings are fab, and perfect with the Hello Kitty sweater.

Brianna is beautiful. Both dresses look great, so whichever one she picked will be fab.

You really were good just window shopping in that store. I would have struggled!
Have a great week xxx

Love your leggings!

Rose&Bird said...

Yes, sometimes I do feel like that, it definitely comes through blogging and the lovely people I've 'met'! Love the heart leggings and it's great that you've found a friend so close to home x We have Cargo in the UK, but it's nowhere near as much fun as your version!

Kathi said...

Thanks for meeting Brianna at the mall. As much as I wanted to go too, I know she wanted to spend time with her friend. What's a mom to do? I'm sure she had a blast with you!

P.S. - I like that necklace!

Ivy Black said...

Oh my good god! Apart from you looking fab and happy....look at all that stuff!! I'd pass out for a bit if I was there. Then I come round and buy LOADS! Is that the store that sells those big hand carved saint figures? I love those.
Cristi is a sweetie and her leggings are great.
Certainly feelin' the love. Big kisses,

O, Brianna IS gorgeous! How lucky is she to have you shopping with her?!

Melanie said...

Briana is gorgeous and how fun to go shopping together.
That's the kind of store I'd love to get lost in.
And YOU, wow, your energy jumps off the page in all your pink splendour. Your new tights are incredible - it's hard to believe Cristi made them. I don't think many people understand what it's like to have bursting joy. Sad. That's why we need more people like you.

Louise Mc said...

You look so bright and happy and ready to take on 2013! How on earth did you resist all those bright colours and pretty things? You're very good. X

I love love love your new leggings and hello kitty sweater!!! Perfect for a grey cold day!!!
I am so happy I have met a kindred spirit in you!!!

lucy joy said...

Here you are injecting us via your blog with positivity, colour and love. How do you do it? Does colour follow you?
I love leggings and own the most boring plain pairs ever. Hearts are so you, Cristi has a fantastic muse in you. You are lucky to have met each other.
What I wouldn't give to go for Tacos with you, or shopping. Brianna is a bright and beautiful girl who knows what's good for her.

Love the sea-inspired palette of the necklace, pastel greens and blues remind me of ny favorite places.

Still digging on the Die Antwoord, you'll be.pleased to know!

Lots of love, Cariad,

Such discipline to be able to be surrounded by all that gorgeous stuff and not buy anything! Blogging has created the opportunity for me to find kindred spirits from all over the globe too, and isn't it just f**cking awesome? I love your spectacularly pinkalicious outfit more that I can say. You are cooler than cool, Krista!
