Hello, December

life updates

Louis C.K. has some joke that goes approximately like, “Thanksgiving doesn’t end when you’re full. Thanksgiving ends when you completely hate yourself.” Safe to say that was me at various points this weekend: so utterly sated, bloated, and stuffed that I really, really hated myself. By last night, after 4 days of drinking and eating crazy (delicious) amounts of dairy, I was done. So today I’m taking it easy (and taking the easy way out) by sharing some snaps of life lately, while I settle back into the office over here. Enjoy!

PS, on Friday I shared some of my favorite holiday deals and steals, and many (if not most) are still live for Cyber Monday today — lots have even deeper discounts too! Check it out. I’ve updated some of the codes since so many of them change on Cyber Monday. Happy shopping!

Weekend Favorites

fall garden

It’s been a while since I shared any weekend snapshots, so I thought I’d recap a little bit about what we were up to the last few days! On Saturday, we spent time getting our garden all ready for fall…

We planted new mums, Erica heather, ornamental peppers, and cabbages, all of which will last into winter since they can withstand the cold temps! Favorite: the periwinkle mums that are now in this pot. They’re just so cheerful.  Read the full post +

Just a few quick snaps of things I’ve been up to lately…


We’ve slowly been buying some pots and plants for our little space outside. First to be potted: a basil plant that’s taken to it’s new stone planter quite well (the all day sun doesn’t hurt either).


We found this little teak bistro dining set at a hardware store for an absolute steal. Virtually ever night before bed, we’ll sit outside and enjoy the summer breeze, along with a nightcap. Such a nice way to unwind (and without anything digital in sight).  Read the full post +
