whip ’em out


via domestic reflections

oh boy…can’t wait! ;) hahah….


cookie luv.


so i’ve had cookies on the mind lately. something about the soft warm sweet smell of freshly baked cookies. i have even bought some fondant to try and get a little more creative w/ my styling.
i’m aiming for stuff sort of like this….

spotted on the inspired bride

this morning i spotted this awesome make your own message cookie cutters from william sonoma off of a registry sponsored post on green wedding shoes. and i have to admit, i’m kind of in love.

anyone have any good sugar cookie recipes they want to pass along? i’ll bake and decorate and send you some treats in the mail if it’s especially good! ;)


sorry one more :)


i also, freaking LOVE this, esp considering i already own this exact bag

we’ve been using the bag to hold our EVERYTHING KIT for peekay from long lighters to tape (of every variety – duct, japanese paper, painters, masking, clear, double-stick, florist, etc)  to ribbon & hemp, and razor blades, scissors, thumb tacks, zip ties, a hammer, markers, clothespins – basically any and everything we may possibly need on-site for setting up weddings…but i kind of think being able to pull it around in a cute wagon like this would make it all the better….

i’m thinking i could weld that up – don’t you think? hmm….perhaps a call to our buddy strieby is in order ;)


more junk i heart


so i finally set up google reader (thx krist) and here’s some more stuff i just love the crap out of…

these printed tools & craft gizmo’s by cynthia rowley (LOVE the staple gun-too bad I already own like 4…)

p.s. – they even have a cute little tape measurer that would make a perfect pretty addition to my purse (ha since i truly am the type of person who always just needs a tape measurer at random frequent times) spotted on design mom

i know air plants are all the rage right now-and it’s a trend i haven’t given into yet…but with these hanging plant pods, i might just be ready to add some to the collection – i’d say it’s about time we added a lil plant life to our casa–don’t you?! :)

spotted on apartment therapy

because krist and i are starting to design our peekay office space – how perfect would this pouch be to hold my precious pens? (i’ve always always had a pen/pencil obsession, i esp like the really really skinny korean ones!)

spotted on my favorite things

and just because we recently returned from time on the cape- how perfect is this beach house?

hopefully i won’t feel compelled to blast my blog with other people’s post daily – but until i get over the excitement of reader, i can’t make any promises ;)


for the love of quirk


liam – sent us this awesome baby gift today, and i’m seriously kind of beyond in love. quirkbooks has lot of rad, off the wall how-to’s, downloads, and quizzes

from the printables section – i think i am going to print this and hide it in john’s wallet – you know…just in case ;)

also check out the wall notebooks – you can download for free…i like this one ;) – download, print, and write your notes on the ‘wall’ like a tag.

super awesome stuff and lots to dig through…check it out!

boots and boys…


“they bring me so much joy” … ha ok, ok, bad ke$ha song reference, i know. lame. but i love boots. seriously. and can’t wait for fall. last year i bought the below really great pair of mia boots ~ in both colors,

and as you know, towards the start of summer picked up these sweet steve madden roady boots. yesterday johnny spoiled me with these mia boots.

and i’m seconds away from purchasing these lace up wanted prague boots :)

as you can tell i’m trending away from the standard black boots… anyone have a pair that they think i wouldn’t be able to live without ;)

what are your fav boot brands, styles, and what will be in your closet this season?
