Colombian Ruins for the win!

Cartagena, Colombia
my shirt: H&M / his shirt: BR outlet / tired smiles: HEAT!

I keep going to write a blog post...keep not really knowing what to say. Because the past week I went through some pretty serious personal matters that were in a word, horrible. But we move on. And I love you all and think the world of you for being the amazing individuals that you are. Thank you. You have no idea the tremendous respect and appreciation I have for each of you. Truly, truly, truly.

So now that I wrote that, I'M HOME! We have hundred of photos we're sorting through...that I should scrapbook before the memories fade. You'll get a little montage soon. Mostly food and pretty places, which is exactly what cruises are perfect for. And I brought you guys back a light tan, but it's kind of fading. Sorry about that.

Since it's the last day of the work week, I thought we'd play a nice round of friday sensibles. Join in!

Making: a 1 hour dress-I just need to finish my edges and decide on my neckline! YAY!
Laughing at: the balding post-it notes. It's receding!
Seeing: the sun peeking out and my tulips stretching their petals.
Hearing: the train passing our house.
Smelling: nothing! Which is good for an office.
Tasting: my morning breath. Too honest? :)
Feeling: Tingly. I'm still trying to wake up.
Reading: Finished the Hunger Games on the cruise and this is going to be on my doorstep today!
Wishing: I had endless time in the morning to clean and workout. I love the mornings, so much more productive.
Loving: my new Jo-Ann's reusable bag. The straps are rulers and that is awesome.
Craving: I'm not sure. Oatmeal? With cinnamon? Mmm.
Anticipating: Stake Conference. It's where all the church members of our local area get together and we have special speakers for saturday night and sunday morning. I love getting direction specific to our little area! It's a feast.


  1. We're so glad you're back! We've been missing your outfits. And we're sorry to hear about the horrible stuff, hope everything calms down, we know how that goes.

  2. Glad to have you back Mandi and I certainly hope things have turned around for you! This photo blew me away. I'm so jealous you got to go to there and can't wait to see more :)

  3. Was wondering where you had gone off to!

    Hopefully things are turning around. Having bad weeks suck.

  4. I love the SHE book. I have it and the type is wonderful :) You will enjoy

  5. I hope things are turning around... so sorry. I know what that is like. Amazing how fast life can change.

  6. i'm sorry about whatever's going on that's horrible, mandi. hope you find peace.
