motel mondays: part three


welcome to my 3rd edition of motel mondays.  the above motel (the motel grand) is on south la cienega blvd... this was the first motel my friend and i shot on our early morning adventure and these photos were taken at about 6:45 am when the sun finally came up. i have always loved the colors of this motel and the sign and drive by it often on my way to LAX.  my friend and i agree that it would look WAY cuter without the bars on the windows...

so, the hollywood motel that i featured last week found out about their being highlighted and commented on my blog post (albeit with an ad for their motel). but i still think that is awesome! especially since i didn't list the name of the motel anywhere in the post.  pretty cool, right? so, perhaps more people are into the idea of motel mondays than are commenting on them? hmm....

the highlight of my weekend was that i got to attend the premiere of the muppets movie! cool, right? i don't know about you but i LOVE the muppets and grew up watching the show with my family every single week it was on.  personally, i think they should bring the show back.  so, one of my very best friends worked on the film and invited me as a guest to attend the premiere. i walked the green carpet with her (and a great shade of kermit green it was!).  i also was on quite a sugar high with all of the sweet treats at the after party... 
and i loved that a lot of the attendees brought the kermit green into their fashion choices for the event! i went with miss piggy pink for my own ensemble. love the kermit addidas shoes one attendee was wearing (below)!
and the movie was a lot of fun and filled with awesome big musical numbers! and kermit and the gang were as awesome as ever with their human co-stars and i now have a soft spot in my heart for the newest muppet, walter... and i had no idea jason segel can really sing! and most of all i am so very super proud of my friend for helping to create something so awesome! so, add it to your "must see" list for this thanksgiving weekend!

lots of folks sent me really sweet messages about my guest blogging over at curbly. and many have asked about the groovy mod wine rack i posted on friday. well, their technical difficulties have been sorted out today (YAY) and you will all be able to get my full list of directions and supplies from my post on curbly here.... so head to your local home depot to get the stuff needed to make your very own!

my parents called to tell me that they also enjoyed my guest blog posts.  my dad said "i really like how you finally embraced using capital letters in those posts. they are much easier to read and you should really consider doing the same on your own blog because it looks much more professional and you were once an executive..."  i tried to explain that i just really love the look of a lower case font.   i always have.  and a great lower case typewriter font most of all... and plus, i'm not gonna lie... i am a slightly lazy typist.  and since you are all friends i hope you are not judging me for it...  at least i'm not shouting at everyone with all caps...

i have a new diy i am super proud of that i will be posting later this week so get ready! i hope it knocks your socks off!

so, for those of you just tuning in and wanting to know more about me you can by going here... and if you didn't already know... i created a facebook page... check it out and "like" it! and follow me on twitter and you can even follow me on pinterest too!

until next time...

  1. That sounds like Dad-the Grammar Police! :) Did he also give you a lesson on when to use 'me' or 'I'? (love you, dad!)

    Loving the Motel Mondays. I have been searching around here and the closest to those vintage motels is a vintage pharmacy. Apparently we tend to tear those types of things down in the midwest!
