First campfire of the season tonight! I've been craving foil dinners and the smell of charcoal. And I'm pretty excited.

Cute Ones

Swimsuit season. Yay. Trying to find a cute, flattering, one piece this time of year is a head ache I could do without. But thanks to the modern miracle of the internet, this process isn't half so painful as it use to be.

Here are my finalists this year:

Dapper Demonstration

It’s a day of rather dapper demonstration outside the Abercrombie & Fitch store on Burlington Gardens. Protesters are objecting to the company’s plans to open a children’s clothing store on Savile Row in London. They claim the chain store’s presence would signal the demise of a street dedicated to the bespoke tailoring trade Photograph: Matthew Lloyd/Getty Images

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

31 years ago my parents committed to spend eternity together.

Mom & Dad, thanks for showing me that a good marriage means building a life together, one brick at a time; that on good days and bad days, love is still the foundation; and that the heartache and worry along the way are nothing compared to the joy you feel in the quiet and profound moments.

Congratulations and happy anniversary.

Yes! THAT is what I want in my giant dining room!


Wow. I'm stunned by the stained glass and detailed arches. I also particularly love the natural lighting and greenery.... And the cushions on the floor.... Ok, so maybe I kind of wish I was Moroccan right now.

I love my mom, she's beautiful.

AND she's visiting this weekend. For the WIN.

Gun Key

‘Jailers’ keys were apparently filled with gun powder to create a primitive gun that could be detonated if there was any trouble when opening a cell door. We found several original versions that back up this claim, dating from the 17th century and of various complexity.’


Jennette and Janell recently introduced me to HeyTell and its my new favorite toy. It lets you instant voice message, so you can do it safely while driving. Plus it sort of turns your phone into a walkie talkie and that's just so 80's it makes me want to put on hammer pants.

Chic, modern, well-designed, and ultra-functional. Does it get better? I submit that it cannot.
