Is it fall yet?

I know it's still summer but it's almost August and I am extremely excited for fall.  I am heading back to Nebraska to see the family in September, it will be football season, and I just love fall.  But you know what else has me excited - all the clothes.  Especially Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Fall 2011Collection.  I would purchase everything!  Mom I hope you are reading!  Start drooling peeps- its amazing :)

Back to School, Back to School

Well not quite school but work.  Yup its time I get back to the real world.  So, today I am packing and preparing for my assessment/interview tonight and Thursday.  Hopefully all goes well.

I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight.  A little Billy Madison reference!  No?!  OK whatever.

 I think I have everything.  I was looking around like a mad women for my tube card.  Guess where I found it?  In my back pocket of my jeans. 

ipad for the presentation and last minute research

Wish me luck!

Parks and Recreational Drinking

Sunday we spent the day exploring our neighborhood.  We found a new pub a block away with a huge beer garden.  Not sure how we are just discovering this, I thought we knew every pub within a block radius of our place.  After the pub we went to the park to relax with some cider and leave it to me to play on the playground.

Warning picture overload :)

Camden Market

Matt and I decided this weekend we were going to explore our neighborhood and a few close by.  Saturday afternoon we checked out Camden Market (home of punk).  It's London's largest open air market filled with stalls, stores, pubs, cafes and restaurants.  I could have spent hours shopping but Matt was more interested in the food.  We ended up walking home along the Regents Canal and heard a tribute to Amy Winehouse.  Next time I am posting up on a motorcycle chair and people watching :)

The Folly

When we first moved here we had corporate housing in the Financial District.  Not much is going on during the weekends and The Folly became our best friend.  It's a resturant and bar but you feel like you are in a secret garden.  It has two floors, a Wine Shop, a Flower Shop, a Deli, rustic wood tables with candles and flower pots for lights.  It truely is an urban sanctuary.  The food is great, staff is warm and welcoming and the atmosphere well, its just perfect.

Microphone check

I'm a wuss and really indecisive so getting a tattoo was just a dream until now.  Check out these cool temporary tattoos.  I can't wait to sport mine.  You can get your own at tattly!

Rain Rain Go Away

I seriously feel like it has been raining for weeks.  Ok, maybe just 5 days but I'm over it.  I have been sporting my wellies pretty much everyday.  My outfits have been anything but exciting, yoga pants, t-shirts and my rain coat.  I did catch up on my celebrity gossip.  Hope the weather is better where you are.  I'm dreaming of sun and sand right now.

Bite the bullet

It's time to bite the bullet and get a UK driver licence ( not misspelled- that's how they spell it).  Most the jobs I am looking at require me to have one so I guess I have to.  Not only do I have to pass a written test, I also need to pass a drivers test.  I know for sure I have to be able to parallel park, do some curb back up maneuver and shinny the steering wheel?????????????  Putting me on the right side is scary enough now you want me to back up, parallel park and not panic at the same time...ah!  So I am signing up for driving lessons.  Wish me luck learning the "British way" of driving- my stomach is in knots just typing this.  I leave you with this....

Me being very mature and not pouting!
