Happy Friday!

It has been nice to lay low these last could of days after the craziness of moving and starting a new job all at the same time. We celebrated my Mom’s birthday with a family dinner, home cooked by my brother, which is always a treat! I think I am still full from last night! The rest of my time home will be visiting with friends and family and then I am driving back down to LA solo.  I am aleady planning my next trip home for my cousin’s wedding in May!

Enjoy what I have enjoyed this week!

  • Adding anothing branch to his degrees of separation, Kevin Bacon is finally getting into the bacon business with this short web film.
  • Whoever this was, I would like to be friends with him. C-SPAN should have let him finish; The Fresh Prince of C-Span, ladies and gentlemen.
  • I know you don’t want to admit it, but everyone has binged watched NetFlix, Hulu, HBO, what have you. Do you know there are rules to binge watching? It’s not as easy as it seems!
  • An acoustic version of any song is usually better than the original. Hozier’s acoustic version of “Take Me to Church” is soul wrenching.
  • I used to use abbreviations when I texted, i.e. “U”, “2”, etc. My husband (then boyfriend) once made a comment that he didn’t like it, and I immediately began spelling out every work in texts, and still do to this day. Once he claimed he doesn’t remember saying that, but I’ve kept it up, and typically use proper puncuation, as well. I will never stop the use of my emoticons, however! What kind of texter are you?
  • I assume everoyone has seen Gone Girl by now. If not, don’t click the following link. If you have, you know why I, and the FBI, will be forever creeped out by Rosamund Pike.
  • A man bought thousands of undeveloped negatives from the 1950’s-60’s from an unknown photographer. What he found is stunning. Vivian Maier had a beautiful eye for street photography and it’s so wonderful that her work is now able to be shared.
  • Unless you are new to the blog, you know about my Backstreet Boys obsession. I thought I had seen it all, but I was mistaken. This commercial for Outlooks at Bealls from 1993 is my favorite thing of all time!
  • I am not ashamed: I am a selfie addict. I am also not exactly in love with museums, but I do tolerate them because my husband loves them. I think the best compromise would be to visit the world’s first selfie museum. Yes! The art in this museum is made for you to literally be in it. I’m sorry, I may be super vain, but this sounds like so much fun!
  • Arguably the best segment from The Tonight Show, Lip Sync Battle, is coming to Spike TV! I consider myself a pretty good lip syncer, as I am sure many of my fellow communtors would back me up on, so I think this show may be added to my TV rotation.
  • I take most Yelp reviews with a grain of salt – they seem like they are typically written by irrationally angry people who are projecting, without leaving any constructive criticism. A play off Jimmy Kimmels Mean Tweets, these restaurant staff reading mean reviews on Yelp is actually pretty funny.
  • I will leave you to start your weekend with a strangely adorable chipmunk yawning and streching like a tiny little furry person.

Alright, it did not rain today, but the day I took these photos it sure did! Dare I say that it has been a bit chilly the last week or so in LA? I better not be jinxing it! I’ve been cuddled up in sweaters and blankets for the past few days, soaking in the rain and gray skies. Let’s be clear: “chilly” in LA is anything under 70. I know, we suck. To be fair, I would rather have cold weather in the winter. That makes you hate me more, right?

Besides weather, other things that are currently making me happy: work possibilites, “Spring” cleaning, and our new apartment. Yes, we found a new apartment and it is impossibly adorable! We get the keys this weekend and will have a couple of weeks for the moving process. I have been spending too much time on Pinterest for decor inspiration; We are planning on starting over and really making this place a home.

What are your favorite home decor inspiration sites?

Happy Monday!

I am still working on eating my way through the pound of chocolates from Valentine’s Day and I am so fine with that! We had a very simple date night, including dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Mud Hen Tavern, which is owned by Top Chef Master Susan Feniger, who is such a sweetheart and often brings out the food herself and will take the time to talk to you and thank you for coming. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, please go there and order the kaya toast. There’s nothing more you will need in your life. After dinner, we went to see Meiko at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, which is the perfect venue; very small and intimate. It’s a wonderful place to discover new music. Although it was a short show, I had not seen her perform in a few years and was very excited to see her announce the last minute show! She just released a new EP that I very much recommend if you enjoy the singer songwriter sound.

Oh the wrinkles! The dreaded wrinkles! I thought about ironing the dress before we went out for Valentine’s Day, and decided since it would wrinkle right back up the second I sat in the car, it was not worth my time. I apologize to those offended by wrinkles; I’m just lazy! they just do not bother me as much.

Speaking of the only thing needed in life: shift dresses. Give me a drapey dress, with no cling or shape, and I am a happy girl. A lazy, comfortable, happy girl!

I am starting off this Monday with a ton of energy, and it’s giving me hope for a very productive week! Do you have any plans for this week? How do you keep your productivity going throughout the week?

With 9 days to go, I am busy, busy, busy! I’ve been working non stop on making sure this wedding goes smoothly! I am kind of obsessed with this outfit and have been wearing it a couple times a week. Other than this, I’ve been in leggings and tank tops. There’s no need to put much effort into getting dressed when I am just sitting on the computer and the phone, planning all day!

I have been a list making, DIYing, everything down to the teensy detail busy body the past few weeks! Wedding planning is super stressful, and somehow I kind of like it. Even when I compain and say I hate it and show a bit of my bridezilla side. I am so confident that everything is going to turn out so beautifully, I cannot wait to be able to share photos and tell you all about it!

I also can’t wait for the night where I get a full night sleep and not toss and turn with my wedding induced stress.

I have only done a couple of DIYs in my life, but this is my favorite. If you count cutting the sleeves off of a denim jacket as a DIY. With my lack of expertise, I certainly do!

We are nearing the end of summer and that means starting to layer summer pieces. I love being able to wear my summer pieces just a bit longer, like this sheer top, into the fall with layering!
