Sunday Roundup



What did you do this weekend? RK's production of Once Upon a Mattress is officially over, but with Pete as the 'master electrician', he was there all weekend. Yesterday, we went to a pumpkin patch with Julie, a new work friend, and Steve and Mary. Then Julie, Pete and I got Black Thorn Pizza and went to the musical. This morning, Pete and I took a looooong walk around the neighborhood and fantasized about buying a house in the near(ish?) future and having kids. The weather is still unseasonably warm in St. Louis (it's October 24th and it was 75 degrees today) but I'm holding out for cooler weather.

Here are some of my favorite links from this week!

Elise is celebrating her 2000th Etsy sale! Help her reach her number.

Pomegranate farm. Yum!

I'm buying this beautiful personalized hanger for myself as soon as I finish this blog post...

This poster from 1canoe2 cracked me up.

Nichole made this huge paper lantern pendant with nothing more than coffee filters and glue.

This flower bouquet is super cute. It would look great sitting on our dining room table year-round.

S'mores are my fave - recipes for doughnuts and milkshakes.

Best Mac and Cheese in NYC - bookmarked for our March trip.

These maps are super awesome.

Amy Sedaris shares her favorite things.

My job requires me to use Photoshop and InDesign, which are both great programs. I'm slowly learning, and this site is fantastic. What fun ideas!

The Purl Bee has given me tooooons of ideas for Christmas presents this year.

Picture: love the minimalist, clean lines - and the pops of color. My place will never look like this, but it's nice to think about.

Have a wonderful work week, everyone!
