Working for the Weekend

Although the week has started and I am already well into my crazy schedule, my mind is stuck on my weekend. In my mind I am still bike riding along the strand or sipping mimosas with a good friend after finishing our 10K.

Only a few more days before we get to enjoy another little life break.

weekend

For some extra fun-timez, here are a few great things the internet has introduced to me today:

  1. I just can’t quit watching the NPR tiny desk concerts, here is a great one of Swell Season.
  2. While I was considering just making some myself, these coasters may have changed my mind.
  3. Last chance to vote for Homies on Apartment Therapy – everyone should vote! (If you are dying to know who I voted for, here is a hint: rhymes with Ranhattan Fest)
  4. I think I could literally listen to Amy Winehouse singing Valerie for the rest of the week, straight.
  5. Booked our flights and our rental care for our spring break, Europe trip. Countries will include Belgium, Germany, and France. Send any must-see’s my way. (So far I have taken about 20 pages of notes from Oh Happy Day’s Paris posts)
  6. My type-friends will appreciate this: Kern Ring Set. I also appreciate and want to own them.
  7. Two favorite recent (crazy stylish and beautiful) blogs I have found: Sweet Thing and JASPR.
  8. My web design class meets for the second time tonight and I can already tell this is going to be one of my favorite classes of all time. Big plans, huge goals, and exciting future – here I come.
  9. This Design Sponge, Bri Emery of Design Love Fest and Blogshop feature is so inspiring and motivating. Repeat – big plans, huge goals, and exciting future – here I come.
  10. This vegan paleo recipe posted by Jeremy and Kathleen has me wanting to go vegan paleo.

What are your weekend plans? What are your huge goals?

JUST a QUICKIE

I haven’t forgot about you, my dear, dear bloggy-friends.  It has just been one of those rough n’ tough, thank-god-for-two-buck-chuck kinda weeks, and therefore I have not been able to give this blog the tender love it deserves.

This also means that this has to be a super quick post — ugh sorry, I know it’s still really early in this blog’s lifetime to be having a short abandonment period, but I promise I will return shortly and with goodies!  Goodies=posts in this situation, in the case that it wasn’t obvious.

So in support of being real quick-like with this whole thing, let’s talk about someone else’s amazing project, shall we?

I am sure you are all familiar with The Brick House.  If you aren’t, I don’t know what is wrong with you, but you have a lot of catching up to do because it ranks up there with Manhattan Nest and Door Sixteen as far as amazing, kick-ass home improvement and interior design blogs go.  And if you don’t know who those other two are, you better just cancel all your plans for the weekend, because you MUST read them all, from like original post to most recent.  They represent everything that my cute little baby blog would like to be someday.  Anyway, The Brick House, who is like my idol when it comes to design and style, had a friend of hers sew this amazing cushy headboard thing, inspired by the dreamy Ace Hotel in Palm Springs.  (I haven’t ever been but would love to go — wink, wink, handsome husband of mine)

Anyway, read her post, read her whole blog, and stay-tuned for when I become a slimy copy cat that is totally going to make one of these myself.  Or at least attempt to.

Enjoy!
