It's been a rainy start to the weekend. Despite the fact that I'm not really a "yellow person" and I cannot pick out any one thing I really like about this room (not sure what's going on with the tree), but I find this whole room strangely comforting. Maybe it's the bean bag or maybe it's just the overall 80's feeling. It feels like home, like a place I probably visited when I was young and thought was incredibly chic. It's probably the same feeling my parents get when they watch Mad Men. Nostalgia, perhaps? I always wonder what aspects of our home will make our kids nostalgic someday. What will make them cringe, but secretly smile?
Anyway, I'm a dollar short and a day late with this post. This has been one of those weeks where despite employing the services of two calendars, I still forgot to do everything on it, like literally, everything. I was like the Amelia Bedelia of moms. Oh well, better luck next week! Enjoy these links!
Another bit of yellow I've always liked
If I were a long tunic wearing kind of girl
Some great beach gear (including a gorgeous blue and white beach towel)
This bike is so cute
(and you can get it at Walmart!)
My brother's adorable little family went to a Baby Rave a few weeks ago!
(I too am coming out as a non-steamed vegetable cooker, although I will eat it steamed)
For sure making this salad this week
At first I thought this "cake" was so cool, and then I worried I might be disappointed.
Oh to have a gigantic butler's pantry
This One Kings Lane sale will give you some good ideas for styling bookshelves
(it would be really cool to have one custom-made with all of your family's birthstones)
A nice thing to send a friend you haven't talked to in awhile
