Takin' Care Of Business

Friday, June 28, 2013

Is that song stuck in your head now? HaHaHa Let's quickly take care of some blog business! Google Reader is suppose to be POOF by Monday! So readers, I'm asking you to click the Bloglovin' button below (or a reader of your choice) so you continue receiving my posts and as we say in New Orleans, Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler (Let The Good Times Roll). Let our good times continue!

I went to New Orleans City Hall yesterday. Yes, that's the place where you pay taxes, apply for permits...blah blah blah. What's it called in your country? I love the outside! It's surrounded by beautiful palm trees, a gazebo, flowers and benches. The building itself is very old! The people are nice, but the building is bland. HaHaHa Think beige, black and marble! So I decided to be a chameleon and wear the same colors:a khaki pencil skirt, black top, black cross body bag and black ballet flats. Did I blend in? HaHaHa Government buildings can look so serious and clinical! I think New Orleans should elect me as mayor! I have some great ideas. I would turn this city into Willy Frickin Wonka Land! Cupcake lamp posts, chocolate bar streets, gumdrop trees, the possibilities are endless! Vote For Kimmy! HaHaHa >.<

Beige and Black! Beige and Black! HaHaHa
Are your government buildings like this? Or do they have more color?
Have a great weekend!

Oh wow it doesn't look like the best place to wait! And they always make you wait in government buildings, haha!


At least you blended in with your neutral outfit :)

I'm so sad google reader is going too :(

Susannah said...

I read this on Bloglovin :). You are so cute in the pic of you in this post. Unless they are fancy historical ones, government buildings are probably boring all over the world :)

Cee said...

I have to tell you, New Orleans City Hall doesn't look at all the way I expected it would! I had something much more French and imperial in mind, I don't know why exactly ;) Nonetheless, it looks like it does have a certain 1940s charm to it... although that might just be me, I'm a bit of an architecture nerd!

Cee

Natalia A said...

That's a lot of marble for a city hall! Very impressive. I really like it when you take us on little trips like this - such a wonderful way to see the place and get a feel of it.

The Dainty Dolls House said...

Am following you there doll, transferred all the blogs I read into bloglovin a while ago to make it easier.Your city hall looks different than I thought it would. I think I've been in the one here once, haha. I will have to take pictures of it soon. I'll take a pic of the courthouse here as well, you will flip when you see what it looks like, hahahaha! Have a gorgeous weekend doll!! xx

Anya Jensen said...

You know in Copenhagen/ Denmark our main town hall is made out of RED brick and looks very cool, and old. But we do have concrete monstrosities too - and with nicotine colored walls and drab interiors ha ha.
Following you pretty much everywhere love ;-) Happy weekend love,
Ax

Tina Bradley said...

Lovely pics, Kim!!! You look fab--and I adore that purse!!! I had no idea that Google Reader was going bye-bye. I will be sure and get another reader installed as I have to have my "A Very Sweet Blog" fix whenever it's available! xo T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Mary Jo @trustyourstyle said...

I love that your mind even thinks this way Kim - if you have to visit a boring building, dress in the same colors :) That makes me smile. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

xo Mary Jo

two birds said...

most of our government buildings look like that, but some are so pretty and ornate...you can tell they were built many years ago!

Lilli said...

Hi Kim! I will vote for you for sure since I love Willy Wonka, lol Kimmy Major sounds great!:P In Italy city hall is called "municipio" and let me say that in my city isnt as much impressive as yours! You look adorable and I like your blended colors matching! Nice bag!:) Happy Friday and weekend dear, kisses! xo

Emmy said...

Gosh...the outside of your city hall looks soooo purrrty:) And yes....Kim for mayor. You could run as our mayor too. I would love to live in Willy Wonka Land!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

You'd be awesome mayor Kim :) I think it's fun how your government buildings are surrounded by palm tress and gazebos. I actually live right by City Hall in NYC and it's nice but probably less scenic. And alot of productions are filmed around there because they love the look of the dramatic staircase of the main court house. I think it's probably featured most prominently in Law & Order.

Have a fab weekend doll!

Our City Hall is a historical building & it's quite charming outside & inside. Lucky for you, New Orleans has so much charm elsewhere!

Coco said...

Mrs. Mayor of Candyland you look very pretty and chic in that ensemble. Our government buildings look different depending on the city: in my city they are old and musty!!

Hey Kimmy, you know I'm already your follower. :) I love your outfit and bag! I had to go to city hall the other day too because I thought that's where you pick up the recycling bin but unfortunately, it wasn't. Haha. Anyway, have a great weekend!

Sam said...

Hi Kim, you are tres chic! I have a feeling most town/city halls are like this, ours certainly promotes the bland shades of beige and brown, however our provincial government building in the next city from me was recently designed, it looks like a Tuscan villa..on steroids, they spent millions on it and initially everyone assumed it was some sort of 5 star hotel. Maybe theres hope after all.

Real College Student of Atlanta said...

you look cute and love your post about the building!! i'm already following you on every site haha :)

Linda Becaca said...

Hahaha, oh man, you've got my vote Kim! ;)

Imogen said...

Yes you should definitely be elected mayor! I just know you'd have the best ideas. Totally agree about the look of government. It is so sweet that you decided to colour coordinate.

Laia herrero said...

Hahaha Let me know if you get the position and I would move there for sure, I would love to live in cupcakeland!
You look really pretty and so does the building.
Valencia's city hall is also very old but really charming and pretty I will publish about it someday.
Have an excellent weekend dear.
Xx

Diva Desle said...

LyddieGal said...

So annoyed with google right now! I love reader, no one else lets you search the feeds you follow!

Most of CTs government buildings are pretty drab, but I think the one in the capitol is nice.

Chic on the Cheap

Great pics, thanks for sharing! Enjoy your Sunday XXX

Jolien Van Daele said...

Well, I am Belgian so there are many many governments :-p Walking into the Flemish government buildings gives a very different feel than the federal ones. Some of these federal buildings date way back, while the some of the Flemish government buildings are pretty recent. But I'm most often to be found around the European Union buildings in Brussels and Strasbourg and in these they try to include a lot of plants and art work to. Not only black and beige. White and blue too :-D

Love,
Jolien

trishie said...

I don't think we have a city hall, but we do have a town hall - which is a really old historical building and actually looks really gorgeous.

oomph. said...

where are you, kim?? can't see you...you blend in with your surroundings! haha. most of ours are the same especially on the outer islands. they have brand new buildings, huge and nice and clean, but so vanilla!

Nails My Dreams said...

Always following you... lol. That sounded creepy. Haha. Wish our city halls here are this clean and tidy.
(^^,)

Diva In Me said...

They should totally elect you as a Mayor in New Orleans! I like your imagination blue print =D
Ours is called a Town Council. I try to avoid going there at all. It's not the most well lit and the buildings are old. People there does things really slow. If there are 10 counters, only 3 will be open and the rest...well..I guess they must be taking turns to go on a long break. Heh!
