My weekend ended with this: Otherwise, we had a great weekend. Our good friends from San Francisco came to visit with their adorable daughter and we ate good food, enjoyed the beach, they drank alot, and L.A. traffic wasn’t too bad.  It’s very rare when I’m actually looking forward to the beginning of the week […]

Obsess Much: Pinterest

Pinterest is a virtual pinboard that “lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web.” It’s such a simple concept and an amazing site that it blows my mind that someone didn’t think of this before. Obviously, Pinterest is a great way to view pretty pictures, save/bookmark resources, and get […]

Lovely Weather Changes Everything

For years, I’ve had an unhealthy obsession with San Francisco. The city is unbelievably gorgeous with iconic bridges, water views, and European cityscapes.

Craftastic Vanity

I don’t consider myself to be especially crafty.  I’m very handy and love any kind of power tool but have never been interested in crafty endeavors like scrapbooking or things that require Mod Podge.  (I’m not sure if sewing would count as crafty…not that it matters because I also suck at that but I’ve been […]
