Have a Lovely Weekend!

via {this is glamourous}

I figured I should just go a head and end the inadvertent week o' bedrooms with the prettiest bedroom of them all.  Posting only bedrooms usually says something about my mental state.  I'd rather be in bed snuggling my family than packing up boxes and disrupting my perfect routine.  Even though I'm so excited, I'm having a little anxiety because I know things won't be "back to normal" for awhile.  It's taken years of nesting to get our current house to the superior level of coziness that it is now (in my ever so humble opinion).  I'm a homebody and a nester by nature and while I'm not emotionally attached to our current home, I am attached to how I feel in the space if that makes any sense.  Basically, I'm acting like a crazy emo freak for no reason and I just wanted to share my insanity with y'all.  I'll be sucking it up and packing boxes all weekend.  It will take me all weekend just to pack our books! I'm predicting over 20 boxes of books.  Oy vey! 

Enjoy the thousands of links I posted.  They're all good.  Blogs are finally stepping it up and giving me inspiration again.  Must be fall! 

I love these golden animal magnets

This gorgeous silver planter needs to come live on our new pine dining table

A great round-up of moving checklists that I probably should have looked at sooner

I desperately need to start cooking with an apron - this apron in light blue with my monogram

In the slow cooker this weekend: Hickory Smoked Brisket

On the side: Caramelized Savoy Cabbage

A fab collection of blue and white chinoiserie picked by one of the ultimate experts on the subject

I like this outfit

Why dogs are so incredible

I'm very much a fan of painting the brick

Great tips on budget decorating from one of my favorite designers

Love this pink guest room

Aerin Lauder is perfect

Getting stuff on Craigslist without getting murdered

Have a lovely weekend y'all! 


  1. A) I SOBBED when I read that doggie article last night. Esp. because the doggie's journey started in the city where we live in VA!

    B) DYING for every. single. one. of those aprons. I think they have them in toile too?

    C) Leta Austin Foster. Enough said.

  2. P.S. I just read that Craigslist post and almost peed my pants laughing. I made M drive me to Maryland to meet a guy in a commuter parking lot for our foyer entry table. And I made him drive me to Philly in the rain on Labor Day to pick up my beautiful secretary-turned-bar. NO SHAME.

  3. Thank you for including the link to my blog in your post! Have a great weekend and good luck with the upcoming move! I am excited for you and your family.


  4. Fun links, and thanks doll for making my silver planter one of them!! I love Leta Austin Foser both as a designer and person...such talent and class.

    I can relate to the anxiety (still having some lol) but trust me it will be replaced with a huge adrenaline rush when you actually start moving and turning your dream house into your new home sweet home:)
