Swatch Lady Collection

I cannot get the tan/gray one out of my head!  So fun and springy.

Words to live by

I want to collect, not hoard.
I want to acquire, not buy.

I want to be frugal, mindful and reflective.

A royal wedding

My roommate and I may be the only ones, but is anyone else's moms completely obsessed with anything having to do with the British monarchy and their weddings?

Either way, I feel like lots of items made to commemorate events like this are extremely lacking in taste.  Case in point:



However, this tea towel commemorates the royal engagement in such a pretty way.  I love it!

Better get out your umbrellas, because...

It's raining cats!

I recently ordered some thank you cards from Deadweight, an etsy seller in Toronto.  She sells cards, prints, postcards and stationery.  I got a free postcard and triangle bunting streamer with my cards - what a nice surprise!  That's good business.  And I'll definitely be purchasing more from Deadweight in the future!

Check it out:

This weekend, it's off to Devils Den with Cody!  Hopefully we won't get lost in a cave.

It's finally here!

Snow days sometimes spur productivity.  Here's Cody's finished LA video from when we visited his brother and sister-in-law there over Thanksgiving.

I'm really glad he makes videos of the trips we take together. 

Next video: Devil's Den this weekend!

Tulsa got a blizzard overnight.  14 inches - enough to close the office for the day - see, even Corporate America gets snow days sometimes!

Things Kate and I have done (so far):

Make spiced tea (orange cinnamon tea +  earl grey tea + cloves + cinnamon sticks + lemon slices)

Serve spiced tea with snow ice cream (snow + half and half + vanilla extract + sugar + nutmeg + agave drizzled on top)

Turn the spiced tea into a hot toddy (spiced tea + booze)

Paint nails


Kate worked on her weaving

Sadie loves the snow

The end (as of 4:45pm).  This snow day is far from over.  And I have a closet that needs organizing!

9pm update:  didn't start the closet, but google video chatted with someone special.  3 miles is a short drive when the weather is nice :-/
