What's Sara Reading? Love in Lowercase by Francesc Miralles

I loved and hated "Love in Lowercase" by Francesc Miralles. I'll admit it. I did.

What I loved about it: the title, Mishima the cat, Samuel's nerdiness and total acceptance and satisfaciton of his solitude, and the theme of the connection of things or the mysterious way things lead to the next.

Viva Las Vegas!

Well, you know what they say! Viva Las Vegas! As of yesterday, NAB, our largest tradeshow, has begun and I am drinking my weight in Diet Coke to make it through. It's not a physically challenging job, it's definitely mentally challenging. Being an introvert at heart, it's draining to be constantly greeting people and checking people in for their meetings. Also, did I mention we have 250 meetings booked for our 6 rooms? Yeah, I am POOPED by the end of the day.

Vintage Modern Millie Dress for Date Night

So if you read my last post, there's a lot going on this month. One of the more fun related things happened last weekend. Cody and I got to see one of our favorite bands, Cloud Cult in concert! They're one of "our" bands that we like as a couple. I don't know how it happened that way, but they've become our band. Cody discovered them first, started playing them while we cooked or drove somewhere, and the rest is history.

Hail Away With Me: Tatyana Elizabeth Dress

Guys, I'm gonna be honest with you. I've lost all patience with all things and all people. I'm totally burnt out and it's just barely the middle of April - my busiest month of the year.

For those who don't know, I am an event coordinator for my company, EMC, and 2nd quarter (especially April) is peak tradeshow season. We're just downright swamped. How swamped? I have 3 events in April - two of them in Las Vegas.

I heard about Lillian Madison and her custom Vixen Pinup Brooch from a fellow Instagrammer, Flippa Bird, and immediately visited the website to check it out.

What's Sara Reading? Things to Shout at Loud at Parties by Markus Almond

"Things to Shout at Loud at Parties" is not your typical novel. Written in 1 page blurbs and pieces and tiny snippets, Markus Almond's "stories" make for a quick but entertaining read. In fact, as I read more and more, I highlighted more and more (in my Kindle).
