I eventually do the things I say I will

Give me a break, I'm still on vacation!
But here is the room I promised...
Everything about this room makes me happy. From the yellow zebra-print chairs, to the bursting crystal 1950s chandie, and of course the nun painting by Tony Scherman. Like whoa.

Don't you just love it?

Now I must return to all of my very important pajama wearing activities.

Rule #43

Never blog on an iPad. I am 2 autocorrects away from screaming in the middle of this teeny tiny airport. So I apologize in advance for how this post may turn out, but I didn't want to leave all you lovelies hanging for so long. Lord knows when I am reunited with my homeland, my blogging is sure to decrease.

But because I have no idea how to work this thing when it comes to Blogger, I only have access to the few pictures I have saved on the iPad. Luckily, this little gem is one of them.

Just kidding, I can't figure it out. And I thought watching all those episodes of The Big Bang Theory were making me smarter. In any event, the room I wanted to share with you is not new, but I'm still so in love with it. It's the living room of Milly's Michelle Smith, ya know, the one with the huge nun painting by Tony Scherman? Maybe I'll post the picture tonight when I get to my mommala's house. Until then, hope you're having a wonderful Christmas Eve eve or fourth night of Hanukkah or what have you.

Talk to you all soon!

Shit Girls Say

My new favorite thing out in YouTube land are the Shit Girls Say videos.
There are only two out so far and I can't wait for the next ones.
In my humble opinion, they (they as in, yeah, just two) keep getting better.
Episode 1

"Hey, are you near a computer?"

"Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen...listen."

Episode 2

"Get these chips away from me!"

"That poor dog needs water."

Just a few of my personal favs from the episodes.
Hysterical, right?
And yes, we all sound like that. Whoopsies!

The Perfect Little Coat

How cute is this?
Skirted Peter Pan Collar Coat 
The collar, the cut, the buttons. It's all so lady-like and feminine. 
Now, if only it came in black too...

Santa can you hear me?

Under the Weatha

Hello Lovelies!
Fancy seeing me here on a Saturday, right?

I wanted to check in with you guys and let you know that I am currently a sick little monkey.

This will either result in many a blog posts this week, or very few. I am sort of leaning towards the latter as my efforts will be focused on a very speedy recovery as I am set to fly to Minne-notsomuchrightnow-snowta on Friday. 
But we'll see...crazier things have happened.

Here's to hoping that copious amounts of Dawson's Creek and Gossip Girl is enough to kick this sickness's ass because for the love of Britney Spears (congrats girlfriend!), I refuse to be sick on Christmas.

And speaking of Britney Spears, I love that when you search for pictures of her engagement ring (we've all already done that, right? Right.) it automatically populates with the year...
i.e. Britney Spears engagement ring 2011
Thata girl Brit!

Morally Bankrupt Folks Like Myself Rejoice

For Jimmy Kimmel has done it again. This time with terrible Christmas gifts.
Sure, Halloween candy is near and dear to any child's heart, but Christmas presents? That's basically a kid's whole of course it's funny to mess with that.

There's one kid who is a stand-out favorite. Can you guess which one?
And be careful if you're watching this video at work (shame on you) as a seemingly innocent 10ish year old gets a little graphic.

Merry Christmas!

Ok, so I told you guys last week that I ventured to Furbish.

So ya know those times where you hype something up so much and you dream about how awesome it's going to be and then when you actually experience it, it's a huge let down?

This is not one of those times.

The first part is totally true; I drooled over pictures, imagined items in my house-to-be, and became overly infatuated with a pair of dalmatian chairs.
I took a little road trip to Furbish and this is what I found...

 I was initially greeted by a lovely hot pink door.
This is going to be good.
 When you first walk in, it's a little bit of sensory overload. In a great way.

Amazing foxglove wallpaper. Swoon.

Don't you just love that painting by Jenny of MFAMB?

Look at that bed in all of its splendor.
And yes, those are my chairs. MINE.

The jewelry is all lovely. I especially liked those coral necklaces on the left.

But that's the necklace I snagged. I'll show it to ya in a hot second.
There are no words.

 I love the mix of the floral granny-awesome sofa and that rug.

Black swirl chair...

Black swirl wall, done by Jamie herself.

Pillow talk. Remember those?

 Delicious bubble-gum pink sofa.

Fabric wall, hung on cute puppy butt hooks.
And those chevron chairs? Yay!

All of the above pictures were taken from Honey + Fitz, I was much too awestruck to whip out my camera.
If I hadn't just spent so much money on Christmas gifts for myself I would have gone buck wild.
As soon as I find out where we're moving in a few months, all bets are off!

Here's what I did end up with...
Mr. and Mrs. hand towels. They are so cute and perfect in our master bathroom.

And my neck-a-luss

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Actually, not really.

It is still about 70 degrees here in the south, which is sorta marvelous if you ask me. I miss the snow and the immediate sense of holidayness that comes along with it, but this temperature is much more civilized than the teen temps currently in Minnesnowta.

To get more in the merriment mood, I have been slowly turning my hatred of the red and green color combo into a sordid love affair. I'm not too sure how it happened, but I am loving reds and greens mixing these days.

Check it out.
 I mean, come on. That's awesome.
 Feelin' it yet?
 How about now?
No one can argue with me about that lantern. No one.

It's magical.

Oh, and because I am super awesome and extra helpful today, here is where you can get a similar lantern, PLUS a lamp that has a similar green geo pattern.
You're welcome!!

Carousel Lantern

Green Ribbon Trim Geo Lamp
Aren't they lovely?
Both are from one of my most favoritest stores, Furbish.
I took a road trip recently just to visit Furbish in all of its in-person glory, but more to come on that later.

It's almost Friday guys!

Things I Like...

Let's get back to some home junk, shall we?

Here are some things that are out of this world...
That 1940's Fontana Arte chandy is ridiculous. I can't seem to get it out of my head.

Dark and handsome. Just how I like my men den?

That wallpaper. I would plaster that bright granny junk all ova my house if Tony would let me.
But he's lame-o, so I'm sure he will limit it to one room. Boo.

Leopard sofa and perfectly imperfect hangings of gold-framed art? Yes please.
And. that. reindeer.
Gimme one of those.
He looks so cute like that in the corner, having a holly jolly Christmas.

Happy Birthday Britney Spears!

It's time to start poppin' Red Bull and bustin' out the Cheetos.
It's Miz Spears' 30th birthday ya'll!
Can you believe our girl is already 30?
She is just too wonderful for words and I only wish I could celebrate with her, sans shoes of course.

Let's all have a toast in her honor.
Have a fabulous Friday everyone!
Keep on dancin' til the world ends.

xoxo Meg
