things are going fairly well, thanks.
here at the resort there are beds EVERYWHERE. like lindsay lohan style. four poster beds on the beach, at the pool, at the bar. we really haven't been upright at all.

life is terribly busy right now. t-minus 9 days until baby dog time!

we are trying to get our house in order, literally and figuratively, before he comes home.

i was gone all last week, and we're leaving on thursday for vacation, so i've been living out of a bag...for seems.

november should be more settled. i'd like to make vegetable soup. sit in my new basement and read the two martha stewart food magazines i haven't gotten to yet. and have friends over to meet the new addition.

futhermore, we're going to the fair tonight. i am preparing my colon to top last year's consumption.

flizzity flair

CLEARLY i have a lot of down time at la conference, hence the 349 posts today.

in case you were wondering, the flair is A HIT.

here are the flair bags i'm giving away along with the buttons

here's a fun thing for us to do

here's my bedspread...

here are my green walls and window:

i need some curtains. ideas?


this is on my list of must dos.

it's from domino.
{and my friends, i am going to be VIGILANT about correctly using its vs. it's. i have let it go for too long now. i KNOW how to do it, and i WILL do it, my friends?}

i heart dogs

today's flair choice:

i have *several* 50 something ladies wearing "i'm kind of a big deal" on their nametags today.

erika, remember the globe mobile from zgallerie? you could make one...
world market has tons of tiny globes. some are christmas ornaments, others are just tiny delights.

another world market inspiration: these tiny birds on a strand which would make the cutest mobile for a baby.

and these elephants!

two more notable finds:

yummy coats

old navy, jcrew and anthropologie.

one of each please. i'll be doing a lot of dog walking in the cold.

it arrived yesterday afternoon.

i sat and felt the cover for a while before opening it. i made brian feel the cover. he had cookie on his hands so he felt it with his knuckle.

i then found myself at 11:45 last night arranging a tablescape on our dresser.

it's that good.

bookcase of the day

for the dogs.

can we quickly discuss dog beds?

do you know of one that is good looking, durable and not brown paisley or rust colored corduroy?

i really like these, but brian says (any) white will get too dirty and they’re a little pricey.

if you find the perfect one, i’ll send you a zebra pillow. will that sweeten the deal?

short story

this is ruthie sommers. say hi.

see those shorts? yes, they're tiny. but they're wonderful.

at the beginning of the summer, i saw some Milly shorts that i loved, but knew would never work for me (i have unfortunately sized legs).

at the end of the summer, they were 75%! off so i thought, hey, i'll try them.

so i put them on, and MAGICALLY, they looked cute! they weren't as short as i'd thought they'd be.

point of story - i've tried to find more, but can't. ruthie can, apparently.
