We’re currently saving every spare penny for a trip to Paris next year. Maybe I should set one of these pretty peeks of some of the city’s most famous landmarks as my desktop image to remind me to step away from the online shopping.

We have this all around big bare wall that is in need of some attention. It’s not that I haven’t had ideas for it, I’m just indecisive when it comes to decorating (first home = pressure). I’ve even made pro and con lists about this wall and still flounder. I wish Oprah would just tell me what to do but since our cable subscription doesn’t include OWN, I’m turning to you. Should we:
Decide for me and if I don’t like the consensus, I’ll do what I’ve wanted to do all along which I don’t know what that is yet.
I now feel like this is a good time for a little boy to enter and huff “women!” while rolling his eyes.
I spent the last week with my parents, all of my sisters (there’s seven of us) and their families. That added up to be 30 people under one roof and although loud at times, I couldn’t have loved it more.
This is the whole family with Beck’s bald profile peeking up through the blanket. We took this photo by using a makeshift tripod out of a cowboy lamp. Doesn’t that sound like something you would find on Pinterest?
Beck was always surrounded or held by all of the girls in the family. He has the most circular face, every time I look at it I just laugh.
We made a day trip to Yellowstone and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. Even though I grew up in Montana, I had only gone once when I was too little to remember. I’ve always complained about that and now Beck probably will too. I want to go back regularly, it didn’t disappoint.
Beck got tired with all the trekking around.
I was also schooled about the new hit boy band, One Direction, and told which members were cutest by my nieces. Thank goodness. (I’m sad to report they had no idea who the Backstreet Boys are.)
I’m such a fan of my family, I just had to share.
You know when you’re watching a magic show and you can predict what’s going to happen so you start yelling stop because you know your mind is about to be blown?* That’s the feeling I got while paging through the Ferm Living fall catalog. Each page just kept getting better and I wanted to yell stop for the sake of my wallet. It was so good I even wish listed a buttering board. You guys, I didn’t even know such a thing existed until yesterday. Help.
*true story. last week. birthday party. embarrassing myself.
PS I’ll be absent the rest of the week spending time with my family so this is your chance to talk trash about me on Twitter.
I always get anxious when August hits that the summer is almost over and I try to pack in as many summer related activities as possible. Like having an ice cream taste off. I’m jotting that one down on my great ideas pad.
If you don’t subscribe to Anthology I highly recommend picking the most recent issue up at your local stockist and sinking into your couch ready to read with a chocolate bar. I earmarked nearly every single page. Can you see why with just this little sneak peek?
