going greenish

Fabhabitat rug. All the rage. Got and it wasn't too impressed. It may be eco friendly but they have the same one's at World Market for 16.95.

Find it here

Summer, shows, and my boyfriends. Yes, I still enjoy music and will occasionally dream about having hippy babies who are raised on shakedown street selling grilled cheeses to crunchsters.

Ikat Anyone?

Where it all began...

1,000,000 staples, 3 weeks of stripe painting, and 50 gallons of paint later...

{rug and curtains coming soon}

Christmas Day!

My chairs are finally here.

I have a feeling I am going to be in love with them.

Dog Disability

As most of you know Hank's patellas tend to luxate. This usually happens when we are about 2 miles from our house and Doug has to carry him the whole way home. Thankfully he has Grade II and they usually do not recommend surgery until it reaches Grade III.

We are now accepting donations towards Hanks bilateral knee replacements.

Buyer's Remorse

My engagment party dress should have been a lot like the house and the future husband-- after you decide on one you should stop looking.

I kept looking :/

Great minds think alike. ha.

Speaking of Sunshine

Got this back in January and have been dreaming for THE day it is warm enough to wear this tunic over a bathing suit.

Seriously, everything is to die for.

Yes, please.

Happy Friday Love Bugs.

On a mission...

Mission #1: FIND LAMPS
I own one lamp. Doug owns about 20 lamps, none are to my liking. Therefore we are in the market for 18 lamps.

Nate Berkus for HSN

Bishop Nickel Lamp

Aqua Glass Lamp

White Lola Lamp

I need these lamps to go on sale for FREE.

Mission #2: Prime and paint this hot mess.

Misson #3: Get a Mani and Tame the Uni

"A Good Man-darin Is Hard To Find"

Mission #4" Picture Collage Time.

Misson #5:Find curtains--that do not cost more than my life is worth.

So they say

I went wedding dress shopping one time and decided it was just not for me. I was told by a fabulous, questionably straight man I was a "Grandma nun". When it got the point where he was telling the lady who works there to "pick out the ugliest, mousiest dress" because that "is what I like" I made the decision to leave. I have not been back. Anywhere. The sad thing is the guy had a point.

Grandma Nun? More Grandma than Nun I think...

Nervous breakdown in a box.

This is the straw that broke the camels back...

The camel would be Doug and the straw would be a bookshelf from Ikea.

Console Me

As I have stated many times before I love entry ways. It is a weird obsession.

This is the Beyonce of console tables. It comes in 20 different colors. Sadly, this is about what my car is worth so unless I win the friendship lottery and become BFF with Andrew Mukamal this is not happening.

Beyonce is here.

Until Andrew and I become best friends I will more than happily settle* for this...

The drag impersonater of Beyonece is here

*Please keep in mind when I say settle I mean splurge. This is the only piece of furniture I did not buy on Craigslist.
