Sex Education, 1929

This picture cracks me up every time I see it so I had to post it...

I haven't been on the computer much this week - too much saying goodbyes and christmas dinners with friends, christmas shopping, organizing, errands, thinking about packing...ughhhh.

I'm basically like: 





Napoleon's Apartment

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

This gorgeous apartment in France was renovated - supposedly Napoleon used to live there so the architects wore Napoleon-esque hats for the photo shoot...pretty neat feel to it! See more photos here

Wesleybutt

Hey Monday!

I'm sharing some Wesley pictures because it's been awhile - he's two and a half months old, can you believe that? Can I believe that? no! I'm in love with this kid, especially because for a few weeks now he's been sleeping from 7:30pm to 8am - it's incredible. I need sleep and that first month or so really sucked. My favorite thing is to get him up in the morning. He sleeps on his stomach and when I flip him over he gets so excited and smiles really big and his legs shoot up like he has all this pent up joy and happiness...and then i'm smiling and we're all smiling and this is BEFORE coffee. I've never smiled before coffee before ever...

So anyway, on Saturday we are flying back to the states for Christmas...I'm excited but mostly I'm not excited because I feel like this will wreak havoc on his sleeping all night. Any tips? have you flown across the atlantic with a baby before? What happened?? (please only tell me the good stories).

Dispose

Thursday, December 13, 2012


You know how that one time I talked about how if you're walking around at night how it is fun to look in to people's windows to check out what their lives are like? I stumbled across this online photography magazine that also fulfills this weird spying habit but I guess in a less creepy way...

Dispose magazine offers people around the world a disposable camera and they are to take pictures throughout one day. Four people are then published in each issue. When I read about it I was all OH I'LL SEND SOME IN NEED VOLUNTEERS??? and then I realized, with contributors like weed dealers, artists, DJ's, fashion designers...I'd need to up my game a little to lend them some credibility. But, super cool concept - interesting photos.......and I get a glimpse in to random people's lives....I love it.
"We believe that people want a glimpse into the lives of others, it seems to fulfill a curious human characteristic. When we look at contemporary forms of media, whether it be through social media, blogging or even reality TV, people seem to have a major interest in the uncensored lives of others"

I've been getting my kicks from Real Housewives episodes and my neighbors are boring so I welcome anything that can be deemed as a little more cultural ;)

Would these not make a cool last minute (and affordable) stocking stuffer? (variety of colors available)

So excited to introduce Northern Goods Co. as a new etsy shop to be aware of. I'm not sure even how long Mat and I have been reading eachothers blogs (long time!) but I can guarantee the guy has style - you can read his post on the opening of his etsy shop at his blog, buckets & spades.

Have a great start to the week, you guys - and tell me about your weekends! Last week I was mostly down with the flu and recovering...M was sick this w/e and Wesley has a mad snotty nose, but we are keeping it together and happy to be back on our normal schedule today (i.e. mark could go to work and wesley and i can listen to random music and dance around while drinking bottles and coffee...the usual...). I did get to have fun this w/e though with a Tapas date night and another night of fun music at my fave irish bar in zurich. Life is good!
