Here’s a quick picture from my trip to Turkey when we had tea with a Turkish man that we met on hike one early morning. I couldn’t stop thinking about how this man lead such a quiet existence on top of that hill: making wooden spoons to sell to tourists and gathering sage to be [...]
It’s been a while since I wrote a link list post. To be honest, I kind of shy away from them because I’m really not one to read them on someone else’s blog. Therefore, I think no one reads them on mine.
Weekend recap: Went to Lakeside rummage sale and found adorable ornaments for my tree this year. Ate salmon at my first Tom Douglas restaurant with an old friend from undergrad who was in town for a seminar. Took Stells to the emergency [...]
On Saturday afternoon, I sat and watched a friend play in a flag football game at Memorial Field near downtown Seattle. As I looked up across the field, my eyes glanced upwards as I noticed the Space Needle shooting out from behind the roof of the opposing team’s side. I’ve lived in Seattle for four years this [...]
Am I really this behind on the week? Tomorrow is Wednesday and I have yet to post my weekend update. Nor did I give you a “what i wore” post earlier in the week. Where does time go, really? My weekend was a fantastic, to say the least. And, I’m dying to share the pictures.
Let’s do a recap of the things I completed this weekend:
Finished DIY headboard…just need to mount it on the wall. Pictures to come. Saw the President. Finished SATC Season 5. Babysat for one of my favorite kids ever. Repotted my window plants. (Pictures for that as well.) Ate copious amounts of pizza.
This week is a week of all sorts of busyness for me. This weekend is our annual company retreat. It’s a no work, all play, eat – drink -be merry weekend where we celebrate working hard and playing hard together. Two of my teammates run the entire weekend so it’s all [...]
Happy Monday! Ever have one of those really fun weekends where you need another weekend to recover from it all? I haven’t had one of those in a long time. I spent time out with co-workers and friends on Friday night and then danced my little fanny off until very, very late Saturday night. My sunny [...]
I am asked often if I will ever move back to Georgia.
I talk about home, about being southern, about how we do it different were I come from to the point that someone told me at the wedding last weekend that he was really surprised that I didn’t move back to the east coast after [...]
Last week my dear coworker / friend, Dan, helped me do some fancy stuff to my blog. (By the way, if you follow me in Google Reader, be sure to grab my new RSS). He said it would make it better, and so far, the good definitely outweighs the bad. The only hang-up [...]
Happy Monday! This weekend was the first in a while that I’ve been home and able to relax some. I didn’t do much of anything this weekend, save for a lot of laundry and cleaning of my very messy apartment.
I have started watching Sex and the City for the first time. I know, I [...]
Hello! How was your weekend? Restful, sunny and gorgeous, I hope. Mine was an absolute blast with my girlfriends on Whidbey Island. It hit 80 in the PNW this weekend and summer has officially been declared in Seattle. Translanted: I wore shorts for the first time on Saturday.
Did you do anything fun, memorable, design inclined or fabulously fashionable this weekend? I enjoyed another weekend semi-alone…and I finally bought a couch! A real live, paid by me, I’m an adult now couch. Pictures and story (you know I have one) to come. Until then, sit down with your morning beverage and enjoy some [...]
…or Tully’s…or Sojourner’s (if it was still open).
My weekend was pretty uneventful save for our company’s family picnic at the zoo (adorable kids) and a small, budgeted shopping adventure to J. Crew under the direction of their very talented stylist Larissa. If you have never met with a stylist at any store, I highly [...]
Happy Monday lovelies. A little link love for your last week in June. Where on earth did the month go? It feels like just yesterday I was celebrating Memorial Day. I don’t know what to do with another four day weekend this weekend. Forty hours (plus) to go!
I had an amazing weekend with some much needed relaxing. May is proving to be quite the whirlwind for my social life, so I happily took Friday night to myself, grabbed a slice of pizza, hung out with Stella and watched Rabbit Hole with Aaron Eckhart and Nicole Kidman. So good.
Happy Tuesday everyone. A little link love for your week!
I am completely obsessed with Kate Middleton and officially declare that she is my #1 style icon. I may or may not be growing out my hair again to look like hers. Is it weird that I get a little crazy jealous that she’s [...]
I’m back…and tan…and ready to tackle my Outlook inbox.
A few links for you to peruse.
Fashion blogs galore all in one list. (Thank you, Marshall.) Probably owe taxes, so I’ll continue to lust after this. But dear God let me have it by summer. Southern women and their pearls…who says we can’t [...]
