Shut Her Down

Oh, kids. I don't know how to say this, but it's time to say goodbye. Blogging's been real. Blogging's been fun. But lately, it hasn't been real fun. And if it's not fun to write, then it can't be all that fun to read (especially given the lack of posts). Maybe I'll come back in the future when the creativity bug bites me again, but for now I'm going to focus my attention on the bigger picture--whatever that may be.

(From Suz and Roo's Etsy shop.)

Thanks to everyone for visiting, commenting, and playing along. I'll miss you all, but I know I'll see you around on my Web travels. =)

Best to everyone! Love you all!

Chanel Commercial

Yes. I've been absent. I know. I wish I had a good excuse...vacationing in the south of French, backpacking across Europe, drinking tequila on a beach somewhere...nope. None of those. So no good excuses and no great posts. But, I have done some good ol' fashioned TV watching. That's exciting, right? OK, no. Despite all of this, I do have a Chanel commercial that I've recently fallen in love with, so I've decided (after minimal brain-wracking) that this is the best I can do. I hope it makes you feel romantic...moved...warm and fuzzy...really I just hope it makes you feel something. Enjoy.

Creative with Craigslist

The living room furniture has been picked up to be returned to the store, and it's now time to start considering a new direction. I'm kind of at a loss for the moment, so instead of looking at new furniture, I've been scanning Craigslist to see what the community has in store. I came across a few decor doozies and now I just need to work on opening my mind.

Barrel eco-friendly!

And wait...a matching dining room set. Bonus!

"Excuse me, but is that your hand on my ass?"

And a beautiful side table lamp of a guy licking a woman's stomach.

And the pefect panther artwork.

Done and done.

I'm an Aunt...Again!

Congrats to my brother Pat and sister-in-law Kelly on their new little girl. She was born yesterday at 8:42 p.m. and came in to the world at 8 lbs 2 oz and 20.5" long. My new niece is still awaiting the perfect name, but she and mama are doing well. I can't wait to meet the newest member of the family.

I saw this onesie in the Babycakes and Decor Etsy shop. This is one of many cute designs.

Lookie What I Won!

My pal and old co-worker Miss Aubre had a giveaway on her site, and thanks to Google Reader, I won! I just started using Google Reader a few weeks ago, and it has made blog reading so much more fun! If you're unfamiliar with it, you can subscribe to the blogs you like (such as, oh, I don't know--my blog?) and then when that blog is updated, a link to the post shows up in your Google Reader. To win Aubre's contest prize of the cutest and sweetest mini-harmonica necklace (of which I'm wearing now) ever, you had to be the first commenter. Google Reader let me know immediately of her post, and I went right in for the win!

Above is a pic of the necklaces (from Aubre's site). One was for Aubre, and now one is for me. I have multiple meetings today, so I have to tame my urge to break out in harmonic song. We'll see how that goes. Thanks, Aubre!!

Opinion Time: Too Big, Right?

Furniture came today, and I think it's too big. Shane is sort of feeling the same way, but as the night goes on he said it's growing on him. We have 30 days to return it without any extra cost or loss of money, so I need some help. Should it stay or should it go? And if it goes, what should I do instead? I'm thinking just two chairs and a table or an ottoman now. Something like this. But I don't know. The room is so narrow. Ugh.

(Poor lil Dex. I woke him up from his night nap by turning all the lights on.)

Tiny Art Director

OMG...this is cracking me up. On the Chronicle Books site, I came across the book Tiny Art Director, which "chronicles toddler Rosie Zeman's efforts to get some decent work out of her artist father, Bill. Rosie may not know much about art, but alas for Bill, she knows what she doesn't like—to her ever-increasing exasperation, that's his hilarious interpretations of her commissions," (Chronicle's description). I haven't seen the book yet, but I went to his blog. I was dying. Go check it out for some laughs!
