We are here

So much to do, but hard to leave b and b's house!

Good trip

Dare I say the flights were easy?! And fun?! I read mags, they watched some movies and put on puppet shows for the rows behind us.

Ran up in the NW hills and spotted this little play yard. I want to meet these people and be invited for a soccer playdate.

Room Love

This room is a similar size and layout to mine, and yet 1000 times more pulled together.  There is not one thing about it that I totally love, and yet all together I totally love it.  That furbish gal knows what she is doing.  Love her style, still.

Rocking Zebra

I think I'd put a zebra rocking horse in a nursery if there were to be a next time.  I don't think that my desire for a zebra rocking horse is the right reason to create a next time.  I'm smart like that.  Coral-y curtains are pretty great too. Don't need a baby for coral-y colored curtains....

Spotted this fab room here.

Ever since seeing HVK's post about the hotel Monaco, I have been dreaming of a night there.  The next time we do something like this, I think it will be in at Monaco.

How cool, chill and relaxed does HVK (mama of 3 very small very busy children) look?

 These photos are from the Monaco site.  Loving the style.  Makes me want carpet and wallpaper everywhere.  More is more at Monaco, love it. 

Thanks for sharing and inspiring (as always) HVK.  xo

Funny Confession #165

I cannot wait to be Pitch slapped in October.  This looks amazing.  Thank you Mills for alerting me about this!  What are you still doing here, go watch the trailer, now. 

Going for Gold

The last time I won something, it was the 4th grade science fair and my dad basically did my project for me (thanks Bry). 

Then, on Sunday, I freaking won a race!!!! 

Check it for yourself right here (just look for 8k females to see full female results)!  Forgive me for boasting, but please realize this was a crazy fluke and it will probably never happen again.  At this rate, I will not win anything again for another 25 years - so just let me shine for a moment..  After this post I promise to return to my new year's resolution. 

Winning felt amazing.  The course went straight up and then right back down the major hill (Terwilliger) that is basically my back yard.  I have run this hill about 3-5 times per week for the last 6+ years. This race was mine to win and I knew it.  Home field advantage. If you missed the highlights on ESPN and / or your local news - I took the lead early and held onto it for the entire 8k (almost 5 miles), it was beautiful. 

In case you missed the 1986 (?) AISL science fair, here is what winning looks like on me.   (I know, I know, I can't believe I didn't pull together a better outfit either, what was I thinking?)

I may need to research flights to London, I'm sure team USA would love to add one more to the roster next week. 

Thank you for dealing with me.  I promise to get over myself soon.  xo

Happy Birthday Papa O

Demo Day

I can only imagine how boring it is to follow someone else's closet remodel. I will try to come up with something fascinating and intelligent to share to help offset the dull.

Living the Dream

Freaking love this photo, minivan included.

No Clothes in my Closet

We spent a good chunk of our weekend emptying our closet to get ready for a much needed closet remodel which starts tomorrow. I took "before" pictures that are so embarrassing I may never post them. Here are a few shots of my side of the closet with no clothes in it. No clothes at all...
And no wonder these kids are playing in an empty closet, check out the mess we made in their playroom!
