On my latest Craigslist search I came across an amazing little shop (in San Francisco) called Mid Century Møbler that sells refurbished midcentury furniture. I’m on the lookout for a new coffee table and/or bedside tables but their pieces seem to go quickly, so keep your fingers crossed for me!

These photos make my weekend look a lot more boring that it actually was. Not to say there wasn’t plenty of couch-surfing (it did rain allllll weekend) but we did leave our apartment a few times. I just forgot to take my camera to prove it!
Friday night was game night at a friend’s apartment, where I learned that the most off-the-wall answer almost always wins when playing Apples to Apples. Saturday night was the casino-themed birthday party I mentioned earlier this week, and I spent the better part of the afternoon hacking my old prom dress into a 20s-style speakeasy dress. My hair was done in pin-curls and Nolan wore a suit and bow-tie, and I thought we looked pretty swell. The ‘casino’ was set up with tables for roulette, craps, black jack and Texas hold ’em, and we were each given a bag of poker chips with the birthday boy’s face on them (such a fun idea). It was great fun, and I somehow ended up the big winner at the end of the night! I can’t believe I didn’t take my camera, but I did hijack the hosts’ camera for part of the evening so if and when they upload the photos I will be sure to share a few.
