Vacation all I ever wanted...

Hey everyone! This blogger is taking a few days off to attend a wedding in sunny Miami. And in honor of the Magic City, here are two pictures from one of my favorite movie homes...Al Pacino's sweet digs in the movie Scarface. Enjoy, and I'll see you when I get back!

Cool Buy: Reflections Placemat @ MoMA Store

I'm not really a morning person. I need caffeine and carbs and cold showers and my daily dose of Matt Lauer to help me wake up. You know what else helps? A little sunshine. And aren't these the placemat-equivalent of sunshine?

Good morning!

$18 each. ($16.20 for members)

Bold & Beautiful Bathrooms @ HGTV.com

We are going to renovate our guest bathroom this year so I was poking around on HGTV.com looking for some ideas. How's this for a pop of color?

Now, my dear husband is vehemently anti-wall paper because we had to remove a lot of it when we moved into our home. REMOVING WALLPAPER IS A DIRTY TEDIOUS TASK. If you can afford to, pay someone to do it. Trust me on this.

Even though I clearly have some wallpaper trauma in my recent past, I still love it in small doses and interesting patterns. Like the one above.

Cool Buy: Shore Can Shelf @ ModCloth.com

I am attracted to products with clever names so it should come as no surprise that I had to post this cute little whale shelf from ModCloth.




No, it's not called "Whale Shelf." That would be boring! Predictable! Snoozefest!

Ir's actually called "Shore Can Shelf" and it would look adorable in a kid's (or fun grown up's) bathroom!

$48.99.

Mea culpa...

Hey everybody!

Sorry I've been M.I.A. this past week. I did the DUMBEST thing. I stuck my finger in an immersion blender and turned it on.

No, I hadn't been drinking. No, it wasn't a cry for help. Yes, I do realize how dumb that was.

Amazingly enough I still have my entire finger and I don't need surgery. I just have to wear a splint like this for six looooong weeks:
This is a picture I found online...trust me, you don't want to see my actual splint. First of all, I didn't have time to get a manicure before I tried to cut off my digit. Second, my splint is wrapped in tape that seems to attract every piece of dust and crud in my house. Gross. Honestly? I feel like I'm walking around wearing one of these:

No, a foam finger would be cooler.

Sigh...anywho, as you can imagine, it is very hard to type without my finger. So I took a little blog break. But I missed you all so. I'm going to get back in the saddle and post some stuff this week. I promise!
