busy but lovely week of working and thrifting, adding new pieces to the shop, and relishing the beautiful weather.  treating myself to a lazy saturday of laundry and a kourtney & kim marathon.  that girl says "annoying" as she pops some fried somethingorother into her mouth at least 7 times per episode.  yikes.

hiss again

some more purrfect pins i've collected over the last few months.  all SO good, right?!  fieldguided and leah goren consistently reign supreme in the dreamy feline department.  and now that i have your attention, i need you to see this.

also, that mind-blowing necklace up there?  i knew i had a keeper when my guy surprised me with it back in september.  i further knew so when he wasn't fussed about me breaking it, in front of him, a week later.

mark: "are you in a downton abbey k-hole?" 

uh, yeah i am.  
but it's better than the rock i've apparently been living under.

weird virginia

i'm pleased to report that 25 days in, i'm making good on my promise to love even the smallest moments of 2012.  there's been a lot of beauty-seeking and fun-having in my little world lately!  the discovery of the best pancakes i've ever tasted?  a tough contender to beat in the early rounds of my 'year's best' list.  how's january been treating you all??

little bits

kids of my own... SO not on the horizon for me.  but my friends' little guys are the sweetest rays of sunshine imaginable, and my instagram 'like' policy is as follows: cats, babies, bagels.  your photo falls into any of those categories and you're a shoe-in.  if you've been around this blog for any length of time you know i love LOVE crazy cute clothes for the under-5 crowd, so you won't be surprised to know i've got a pinboard devoted to lovely ideas for my ohsovery distant future ankle-biter.  i'll probably start sharing favorites here from time to time; don't start whispering.  like that time melissa noticed i ordered water instead of beer two nights in a row.  (really it's all for katie!)  doth i protest too much???

friday night texts

do you too find yourself texting photos as answers to the question, "what are you up to?"  sometimes you've gotta spice up an otherwise mundane response.   (please note the discrepancy between his eating habits and mine.)  thanks again, catpaint.  thanks again.

january's finest

i did not fall off the earth!  i've been having all sorts of cute adventures (the best kind) for the last week, entertaining a handsome mister in the state i'm told is for lovers.  i'll share photos soon, so you can feel like a third wheel who also went whale watching and ate too many pancakes.  for now, i'm chiming in to wish my rad dad a very happy birthday (tomorrow!).  he's been scanning hundreds of 50+ year old family photos lately, and they're so phenomenal.  i'll share some of those soon, too.  don't give up on me-- I'LL BE BACK!

*hell yeah.

party things

i've got my sights set on throwing the fantastic 30th birthday party of my dreams (er, his dreams) for someone i like who'll turn 30 in six measly months!  he's a boy so i figure things will need to be less glitter, more beer; nonetheless, i present to you some pretty party things i've pinned lately.  now's also a good time to rally a few supporters for my very important initiative: JANUARY NEEDS MORE PARTIES.  who's with me?!

the 'burbs

it's been COLD this week.  like, go to the mall to get my daily walk in, cold.  dangerous exercise that results the very mall-ish purchase of one of those puffy black coats with the fur trimmed hood.  the sort of coat that will look just heavenly over a vintage dress.  :rimshot:  the sort of coat that is the new love of my life.  bring it, snow.  this lioness is ready for your ass.
