It's another long weekend for those of us who are Stateside, so hopefully you're enjoying a day away from the office. I thought this would be a good time to give you a quick life recap--and also remind you that there's no mail today, because I'm stoked that I actually remembered. Lately I've been covering all sorts of house-y goodness around here (and there's actually another project on deck for tomorrow) but that's not ALL I've been up to. Here are some highlights from the last month or so, courtesy of my diary... which is named Instagram.
>> December was a great month for necklaces. The anchor was a birthday present and I got the moonstone for Christmas. I've been wearing them together like that most days.
>> The weather here has been pretty terrible, as you might have guessed from the snow mountain around the mailbox. It got warm enough for everything to melt last week, but then we were cursed with more over the weekend. #noescape
>> Hubsey wanted me to show you his mad multi-tasking skillz. Yer a wizard, Harry!
>> I'm trying out some new decor on top of the piano in the dining room. The jury is still out, but I think we're getting warmer. And since so many people ask about them, the plant and white pot are both from IKEA.
>> I made a cake! Some friends has us over for New Year's and I was told to bring appetizers and a dessert. Go big or go home, right?
>> This is my fancy lady dress that I busted out for some holiday shenanigans. Have I told you about this one? I bought it in California over the summer, and aside from my wedding dress, it's the most expensive thing I've ever worn. It was $250, which is not totally insane for a classic piece I can have for years, but still WAY more than I normally shell out for anything. I almost didn't get it, but since I've already worn it three times, I'm glad we pulled the trigger. Sometimes a high quality item is just worth it.
>> I've been eyeballing this chair at IKEA for about a year. First they only offered it in gray, then they came out with navy blue, and now they have this great persimmon color. I want this for the basement, since nobody except ME gets excited about sitting in the fake Eames chair...
>> Hey, spray paint. I've really missed you. Let's reunite again when the weather is being more cooperative, m'kay? It's been hard to use you in the garage.
What have you been up to lately?
