insta-follow: i have this thing with floors

Any Instagram-ers out there?!  It’s always exciting to come across a new account that is outside the box or has an actual theme or purpose.  (Lets face it, I can’t be the only one that gets bored with the same ol’ picture perfect shot of someone holding an ice cream cone or bouquet of flowers, even as pretty as they are.)

Well, if you are obsessed with floors, tile, and pattern in general, this account is for you.  I Have This Thing With Floors is a plethora of beautiful floor shots from all over the world, taken by various Instagram users.

another awesome floor pattern from #ihavethisthingwithfloors


I love how all of the photos are taken from the same point of view.  I also love to see what shoe personality each person has.

Can’t get enough? Be sure to check out the hashtag  #floorcore on Instagram for more crazy beautiful floors!


much needed relaxation

I’ve had the last 11 days off work, and I can’t explain just how fulfilling it has been.  I haven’t had any time off really since July.   It has been a total gift to not have to get up early, be somewhere, shower, be under strict deadlines, etc etc etc.  To be completely honest, I’m still in my PJs right now and it’s after 5pm.  I’m sure last nights activities didn’t help.  We were going to go out in San Antonio, but decided to stay in NB because of the rainy weather.   Our first stop was the Uptown Piano Bar, which is like a 7 minute walk from our house, and then went into the little downtown area to a couple other bars to ring in the New Year.  We had a freakin blast.  It’s been the first time we have went out for drinks in such a long time.

But during the last week and a half,  I’ve had so much time to reorganize and reflect.  And the best part is I’ve began to rejuvenate my creative side.  I think with the long stressful hours that had been put in over the last month at work,  I was feeling especially drained of any creative juices left in me.

I’m super excited for all the plans that are in the works for 2013.  I can’t wait to share it with y’all!  I will be back tomorrow with my goals for the upcoming year.

I leave you with my summary of life in Instagram pictures.  xoxo, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
