Trying to not make my way through all of my holiday favorites quite yet, but they are so hard to resist. Oh well, probably going to just have to watch them all twice this year.
Absolute favorite...
The prettiest little movie ever...

First snow of the season, and first time our hawaiians kitties have seen snow.

Aiden, very impressed...

Charlie, less impressed...

Chelsea Victoria Photography is making me more than a little bit excited for our Paris excursion on our Ireland trip. Maybe even excited enough to make some much needed reservations this weekend.

These are so freaking cute.
Perfect for wedding pictures. Engagement or Bachelorette party gift?
Darn you boring clear hanger...
There is always next time, just kidding evan.

I would love three or four of these lovely gentlemen framed on my wall.
Of course these unknowingly turned out to be from a Portland artist.

Looks like we won't freeze this winter. After a long day of moving wood in 20 degree weather, our woodshed has a semi-full belly. Think I broke some wood storage rules and put a couple loads on the front porch. Oh well, didn't I get married so I wouldn't have to move wood piles?
Aiden wasn't much help either.

Off to work, wish I was out celebrating with my Bubba! Happy birthday, Love you! Last weekend will have to count...

The collections on Polyvore are so cute. I love browsing through them for ideas, but so many feature crazy expensive items. Here are a couple of collections with items the average person could actually afford.
The dress in the collection above is from the UK, but would totally be worth the extra shipping cost.

Oh forever21, guilty pleasure. Black cat shirt from this collection is only 11 bucks!

In this one? Floral skirt for 15 bucks. Okay, low census from work does not mean spending the money I didn't make.

A few months ago I was searching through the portland people on etsy and found this girl.
Design Sponge featured some cool lamps the other day with a familiar pattern.
Turns out they are made by a portland based lamp company, School House Electric. Maybe for the bedroom...

The beginning of operation de-yellow. Bathroom, laundry room and bedroom completed.
Taking a little break. Oh man, those polar bear pj's get me every time.Step one completed in the bathroom, but still a long way to go. Not to mention the rest of the house left to paint.

Not overly weather proof, but ruche keeps getting cuter and cuter. Helps that their photography looks like a magazine. I definitely need a dress for the next season of weddings.

Major case of the Sunday Blahs. Start to another work week, and another tear filled trip to the airport. Ellen to the rescue.

Oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree.

How bare are your branches.

Finally having our first christmas tree this year, but since we have never had room to have a tree, our ornament supplies are limited to my once a year hallmark collection from growing up.

Martha Stewart to the rescue. Crafty broad that Martha.

Cookie Cutters...
Seed packets for spring...
Other ideas here.

And so it begins...Yes, that's the color through the ENTIRE house. Some new options for Evan to look through...My colors look different in every room, even on every wall. Blast.Color inspired by this room...

Visited San Diego last weekend, probably my last before it gives me my hubby back. Felt a little nostalgic for the year we spent there together. Mostly nostalgic for the being together part. Visited all my favorite things; the beach, old town, a couple of old friends and of course in-n-out.Sometimes Evan has had enough of my incessant picture taking. Sometimes I've had enough of the Morris shirt, even on Halloween.
