um, excuse me??

just in the nick of time.

perfect nude sandals

BOGO + 20% coupon = 2 great sandals for $27.98!

let's see how this goes...

i probably like our master bedroom the least. and since i've been on a roll, i figured i'd take this sunny afternoon to find finally decide how i want our bedroom to look and feel.

- not too masculine / feminine = light blue paint (it used to look like this! bleh!)
- some modern furniture, but still cozy.
- storage, storage, storage

once i'm done, i'll post proper before and afters. in the meantime, i'll show you what's in my shopping cart:
- $40 - i can't wait to pick this IKEA KAJAK up (and it's in my town too!)
- $9.99 - they're just so cute. i might not get these, since I already have some typo-shams from the Girard line @ UO (no longer online)

- $4.99 - they're just so cute, i can't stand it.

wish us (me + birds) luck!

how romantic

seriously, how romantic.

If I had a $1M...

1: how about some nice art-deco house numbers, a funky mailbox & some chartreuse planters for the front steps?
2: frequently updated black/white photos in eclectic vintage frames to flank this classic door frame
3: all my books, and then some organized by color
4: no words - perfection.

Oh, the things I would do to you! :P le sigh, it's off the market - so maybe if/when markets bounces back and they decide to sell it...then again, it looks like they've moved out already....Hmmmm

rainbow connection

Q: how perfect is this coat rack?

A: so perfect, I wouldn't even hang a coat on it!

I got this one for you know where. It's looks kind of unglamorous here, but trust me, it does the trick.

Just perfect.

pretty + simplicity | at its finest.

tres amigas

yeah, they're cool. :) this is us at MTM10 (old job) w/ P + A.

in my / our next home...

One day, when we're not too old/gray, I'd like our next home to look/feel like this.

what you got there...

1. spare/laundry keys (cuz my husband took mine this morning) w/ houndstooth purse i got from a office s.santa (perfect for those quarters!)
2. school/staff ID
3. jewelry bag from AE
4. 9West $7.99 sunglasses that I shockingly adore, from Port Authority Strawberry
5. i have skin issues: speed stick does wonders in the summer, aquaphor ails everything from chapped lips to ashy elbows, aveeno lotion (love this carrying case - every last drop!)
6. i transferred into a day-by-day moleskiner (i used to like the weekly, but this was a perfect goodbye present from the last job); transitwise commuter map (i am notorious for getting lost!); flier from my old gig (MTM10!)
7. mini aquaphor (this belongs in my makeup case that I usually leave in the car)
8. trim tweezers (for when i'm stuck in traffic) - i've had these for almost 2 years now - miracle!
9. travel pill case w/ advil (though i originally bought the plastic case to carry small bars of soap for travel)
10. red / yellow: to mark up the...
11. Paris / France travel books - see you en Septembre!
12. kimchi blue wallet that i've held on to for 4 months (<--- a world record!)

AHHH, that felt good and I don't know why.

who am i?

i've been thinking a lot lately, "who am i?" in terms of my work, life, and the balance between the two. I must say that I'm quite happy where my accomplishments have taken me thus far, but I'm definitely at a funky fork in the road, and wonder how these characteristics may/may not define me going forward. in the meantime, I shall contemplate on this tagcloud, created from my resume, to see how much i really love what I do, or at least hoping a few other words to grow than others.

You know you all do it. I have been doing this since pre-internet, before there were e-shopping carts! yes, filling out the order form from the jcrew catalogs that my older brother would order (pre-jenna times) - and i would add it all up (old skool) and imagine that i would actually spend 3-4 digit totals all w/o trying them on???! well, same skill, different medium people.

I blame the stupid STRIPES!

I blame my stupid new B+W striped top for finally booking our trip to Paris.
And if all goes right, we'll be staying @ a beautiful studio via airbnb.

1 year down, 1 year to go

last year, our spring break (READ: the 1 weekend between geoff's semesters) involved a weekend trip to New Hope, PA.

this year, we're headed back to my 'second' home in DC/VA. So excited for this new exhibit @ NGA:

The Sacred Made Real: Spanish Painting and Sculpture, 1600–1700
