Lots has changed in my life. Where to start. Well, I hate to talk about it...but I'm getting a divorce. It's not fun. It's incredibly hard. I never thought I'd be here. I'm angry. I'm sad. But happy to have it almost behind me. I've learned what I will and won't tolerate in a relationship and know that I deserve to be treated well. It took me a long time to think that I deserved that. But here I am. And despite the fact that I'll probably be in therapy for the rest of my life (fingers crossed that doesn't happen), I'm genuinely happy. I've got a great new dude in my life and work couldn't be better. It sucks to start over, but I do believe that everything happens for a reason. Through it all...I'm trying to keep my sense of humor in tact. And my boobies perky. :)
I'm looking to do a similar look in our bedroom and upstairs loft. But I can't seem to find any off the rack that aren't uber tacky. I love all of these--but I worry they are custom. I don't sew...do you think these would be easy to pull off if I paid someone off craigslist?
So I recently got a new car that I am absolutely in love with. Except for the fact that...it doesn't work. We got a 2011 Lincoln MKX--the one with the commercials with the guy from Mad Men? I wanted it because of all the cool tech stuff. It has a touch screen, your pic shows up when you call me, a calendar, 3D navigation, ambient lighting that you can customize ( I love the pink), voice controls for everything and oh so much more. But, from day one, I've had issues. I am this close to calling a lawyer about the lemon law. I'm at the end of my rope and I might have to slip it over my head. So just a warning for anyone considering purchasing one--wait a few years till they have worked out the bugs.
So, I ordered a table from Restoration Hardware over 6 months ago. SIX MONTHS AGO! And it still hasn't arrived! Are they aging the wood as we speak!? So aggravated. I almost want to cancel the order and order from CSN. I was looking at some of their end tables and was like damn! That's cute! Only problem with CSN is that every time I go to look for something in particular, I always find another 12 items that I think I need. And have to get. And then I have to talk to Todd about where the money went. Oh well. Totally worth it. :)
I'm starting a collection of globes to help offset the mammoth desk in the office. I was inspired by some of these pics...but I don't know where they came from! Bad blogger! If they are yours, let me know! I got the two bigger globes at Good Will. The cream one at a cute shop in Snohimish and the smallest one on Etsy!
Am I the only one that isn't completely in love with some of the new items at Restoration Hardware? I completely swooned when they first switched it up to Belgian vibe...but now some of their pieces are a little over the top for my taste. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of their new pieces as well, but the pillars and some of the other Baroque pieces just don't do it for me. Anyone else feel that way?
