Vacation So Far and Me and Orson Welles

Greetings from Orlando!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is looking forward to ringing in the new year (and new decade)!  I can't believe it was a whole decade ago that everyone was worrying about y2k, and here we are about to enter the 2010s.  Time really does fly by too quickly.

So I have had a great vacation so far.  I spent a week in a condo in Fort Lauderdale.  Our condo was right on the beach, with only an elevator ride and a few steps down to sandy beaches and ocean waters.  Although there were icky blue jelly fish lining the shore, I went on enough walks to find some great shells to bring back to Canada with me.  I also did some great shopping!  The outlet mall in Ft. Lauderdale is beyond amazing.  I found so many great items at the J. Crew outlet for some great prices.
I'm also the proud new owner of a pink Kate Spade Wellesley Quinn.  I LOVE it oh so very much!

We also headed over to West Palm Beach.  I was hoping to pop by the Lilly Pulitzer, but it was a little too far.  But have no fear, I stopped by C. Orrico for some Lilly goodies.  I found some great deals on a swimsuit, a skirt, and I somehow scored Lilly espadrilles for a mere $10!  Deal of the century!  After a lovely time relaxing and reading on the beach, I flew to Orlando yesterday and have been spending time with some old friends from high school. It's so nice to be back. I feel like I'm home again.  Tonight I went to see Me and Orson Welles at the Enzian theatre.

I'm not sure how many of you liked Citizen Kane, but it's one of my favorite movies, and I think it's one of the best movies of all time.  I thought Me and Orson Welles did a great job of showing the big-headedness and ego of Orson.  He was known for being a little unkind. It has also been years since I've seen a Shakespeare play, so it was enjoyable to see the portrayal of Julius Caesar, and a good one at that.  And of course having Zac Efron in it made it a little more enjoyable to watch as well.

Happy Wednesday!
