Filed Under : MY LIFE

Hope everyone had a LOVELY 3-day weekend!  Mine sure was great.  Sometimes all it takes is an extra day to recharge your batteries.  Don’t you agree?  Here are a few snapshots from my weekend:

post no bills art gallery [also walked through a few galleries at First Friday]

gjelina take away [lunched at GTA on Saturday…my favorite!!]

[went back-to-school shopping…PS, is it ok to back-to-school shop if you aren’t a student?]

bel air bay club [attended my friend’s BEAUTIFUL wedding at the bel air bay club on Sunday]

[we had lots o’ fun at the wedding!]

[on Monday, we took the meaning of “labor day” very literally and did not labor at all…ate lots of pancakes instead]

Friday Love List

August 12, 2011


Is it Friday already??  I swear this week just flew by.  3 minutes ago I was typing out my post for M Street Kitchen and now it’s the end of the week.  My super busy work week was to blame, especially this little diddy that was going on.  But you know what?  I really love work.  That’s going to be #1 on my love list this week.  I love my dang job!

  •  I’m also loving this corner of my desk (in my home office – promise to show more soon!), complete with my new favorite Rifle Paper Co. notebook, a Le Pen (a swoonworthy pen, let me tell you), a couple washi tapes, a stamp, and some baker’s twine.
  • These Colby June rings are so gorgeous and I want all of them.
  • Last Friday, we went to First Fridays in Venice, which is an art walk of sorts with lots of food trucks and fun things going on.  LOVED it.
  • It’s a no brainer that I’m obsessed with Destined to Design blog because it has all my favorite elements: design, style, food, typography, and lots more goodness.  She also has one of my favorite Pinterests.
  • These Steven boots are absolutely perfect for the end of summer and the transition into fall.  Need them asap.  Also, I’m gonna throw it out there: I like websites with free shipping.
  • Lusting after this chain bag from Nasty Gal.
  • I want to make this summery salad from Green Kitchen Stories.  That grilled zucchini paired with raw apples and beets looks like a dream come true.
  • Oh hey, our dining table is being delivered today!  It’s a big hunk of wood and I cannot wait to see it.
