jim’s pancakes

Every weekend Jim makes fun-shaped pancakes for his 3-year old daughter and shares them on his blog. So creative and sweet!


Things have been a little crazy around here this week, and I’m relieved to have the weekend to get my bearings back. I fear that the blog has suffered a bit the past few days, but I will be back next week with all sorts of lovely bits of inspiration and pretty things! Enjoy your weekend, friends.

This picture has been cracking me up all week. Cats are the best. Seriously.

non plus one + happy weekend!

I’m signing off for the weekend, but wanted to leave you with this delightful little video for Opening Ceremony, featuring Jason Schwartzman (love him!) and Kirsten Dunst. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, however you choose to spend it!

Oh, and a special shout-out to my brother who is graduating college today, and my friend Rachel who just found out she matched at her top choice for residency! Congrats, you two!

happy weekend!

What have you got planned this weekend, my lovelies? The forecast is 60s and sunny (hooray!) so I hope to spend some time outside. Perhaps I’ll go for a hike, or pack a picnic to take to the park, or simply take a long stroll around town. I’ve also got a few things on my to-do list, the biggest of which is cleaning out my closet. I’m SO ready to pack away my sweaters and break out warm weather clothes. And maybe I’ll rediscover some pieces I can pull together to look half as cute as these girls from Totokaelo. Happy weekend, friends!

this too shall pass

Holy awesomeness.

First the breakfast machine on Design for Mankind (which inspired me to watch this scene from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), then OK Go’s new video. I’m having a Rube Goldberg kind of day.

Blast! Google Reader hates WordPress embedded videos. See it here.


Safety meets style in these super cute bike helmets from Yakkay. The helmets are not yet available in the U.S. but they’re preparing a U.S. launch this spring. Just in time for bike-riding weather!

on the radar

Our internet was out earlier this week, and I’ve been trying to get through hundreds of posts in my RSS reader ever since. Too much goodness to share it all, so here are just a few things that caught my eye this week:

What have you got planned for the weekend? We have some friends in town, which should be fun. And we’re supposed to get more snow, although I’m less excited about that. Hope you have a great one, and happy Valentine’s day (if you’re into that sort of thing). xo

Good morning, friends! Did you have a wonderful holiday? We spent the long weekend holed up at my husband’s parents’ house in the mountains. I always find it hard to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend, so I’m thankful it is a short week – we’re headed up to DC on Thursday to ring in the New Year with some friends from college. Tell me, what are your plans for New Year’s Eve?

thanks + giving

We’re in Tennessee for the next few days, but I wanted to stop by and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. And a happy week/weekend to those of you outside of the U.S. I hope you get to spend some time with the ones you love, and reflect on all the things you’re thankful for.

My brother and I are in charge of dessert tomorrow. We couldn’t make up our minds, so we’re making four pies: Chocolate S’more Pie, Rum Raisin Apple Pie, Oatmeal Pecan Pie, and Pumpkin Pie. Don’t be jealous. ;)

harry barker tennis balls

Fun colors + packaging for these Harry Barker tennis balls. A great gift idea for a dog-lover. Or your dog… so he doesn’t feel left out Christmas morning. :)
