LOVELY LA LA LAND HOUSE CRASH AND MORE!

Posted by Lori~

Steve and I just got back from the badlands of SD, including Mount Rushmore State Historical Site and Crazy Horse.  Steve was at a conference, and I got to go along for the trip. It was a fabulous and coincidently Ethne spent a summer as a Park Ranger at Mount Rushmore.  She re-lived her summer through my texts and photos.  




I had to take this photo--the amphitheater where Ethne had to wing it, and sing
The Star Spangled Banner in front of a live audience (because there was a microphone glitch).
She literally did not prepare, had no plans to sing, and had to do it acapella.
I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BE THERE!


At the end of the trip, we drove through Dickinson, ND and got to crash Kirsti and Michael's house from Lovely La La Land.  Kirsti recently took a break from blogging, but her style is AMAZING!

Kirsti and Michael from Lovely La La Land!  Aren't they cute!
And there house is AWESOME!
Their fabulous entry area complete with a black wall (very dramatic),
cardboard moose, and mirrors.  I LOVE IT!



Check-out their modern and vintage living room.  The chairs are antique
and the couch is from IKEA.  Kirsti LOVES Scandanavian style!








A view of their dining room.  Kirsti made a deal with Michael that they
WOULD NOT PAINT the cabinets.  I think it works well with the gray walls,
white trim, and white table.
I love the guest room with the bright hand-made quilt
and retro light fixtures.

You were so close to me. Wished I would have known and maybe we could have got together.
