 tuesday happy to you m’loves. 

here are a few items tickling my whack-a-doo brain:

the construction of an icelandic women’s prison is currently under design review. resembling more the cogs of a watch rather than the depths of hell, the holmsheidi women’s penitentiary is modeled to bring in light and greenery, the idea being that architecture doesn’t have to be completely punishing.

i’m not sure i even need to see the movie now. i will. but this trailer is pretty amazing in itself.

after two “meh” novels, i’m on to a new summer read. it’s my second east coast, heavily WASPY story in a row. seating arrangements by maggie shipstead is a fun satire of family relationships, exploring both the lovely and the thorny parts of that tricky rose. 

speaking of books, i am ga-ga over the new tumblr: matchbook.nuwhere “bikinis meet their match.” literally.

kate imbach has cleverly and playfully jibed book covers and bathing suits. the result: pure fun.

lastly, i haven’t really watched the olympics yet, but this makes me want to find the next javelin match.

are they called matches?

see you tomorrow.

scenes from a weekend…

monday happy to you m’loves.

did the weekend fulfill all your midsummer hungers?

i am stuffed to the eyelids with delight. the last two days and nights were a bouquet of love, laughter, rest and peace.

i dined with friends, cherished on family, laughed with tail-waggers, and found solace in the afternoon quiet.

here’s a glimpse of the goings down:

saturday night called for maxis and gimlets. it was a hot, summah night and the A was hopping. my favorite, cozy table for two, became all the more sweet with a party of four as hh and i dined with our beloved friends. i love those nights when you get home and your face hurts from smiling so much.

this weekend i got my cook on. well, at least MY version of cook: chopping tomatoes. i’ve been eating them like gummi bears. they’re sweet like strawberries and just as juicy. and now that i’m trying to give up dairy {a whole ‘nother blog post} i need all the strong flavor i can get. summer’s tomatoes are banging!

i had another rendez-vous this weekend. this time just a party of two though….

here he is saving our “table.”

jones loves to nap. and typically on his 140lb back, all four of his giant limbs in the air, head atop a tempurpedic pillow. my boy’s come along way from devore, california, where it was a cool 97 degrees over the weekend.

this is my version of heaven:

sunday nights with hunkiest, two passed out beasts, and hbo.

tell me m’loves, how did your weekend fair?

weekend happy

July 27, 2012

friday happy to you m’loves.

do you have plans for our final july weekend?

here’s my vision board for this midsummer weekend happy:

i am currently manifesting summer’s freshest crops. a torrid love affair is going down between me and the candy-sweet, farmers market tomatoes. scandalous!

i see an evening with loved ones where laughter and grace rides shotgun, and gossip & negativity stays home with the babysitter.

i definitely see miss sparkle making an appearance this weekend….either in a dance step, the sass of saturday night footwear, or maybe just the way i flirt ridiculously with hh over sunday morning croissants. my weekend will get its deserved shimmer.

not quite an esmeralda psychic hotline look into the future prediction, but i can bet good money there will be several demands made for walks.

i’ll double down on that bet and see it with several more impromptu, public displays of affection.

ok….sending my vision out into the web-iverse…..hopefully it will happen.

what are you manifesting for the weekend?

see you on the other side of sunday.
