reading nook

I can't stop looking at this space from Erika Brechtel of Small Shop Studio. I originally found and fell in love with her dining room last year, and used it as inspiration for mine. Now, thanks to Pinterest I've found the rest of her home, and it's just as wonderful as her dining room.

marfa road trip

Sorry I've been MIA lately. The end of the school year is always cray, plus I got sick with (another) horrible cold. Darn those kiddos and their germs! Anyway, I'm officially on summer break and I'm back!
Today I've been planning our anniversary road trip. I had originally wanted to go back to the Keys, but with a family vacay to Florida in the works, I figured we'd save it for another time. Instead, we're heading west. Our first stop will be Marfa, TX. You know, home to the Prada sculpture that I've been dying to see ever since seeing this sign on Gossip Girl.

Also, home of the Marfa Mystery Lights. I really hope they show for us!
There are so many hipsteriffic places to stay in Marfa. We're trying to decide on a yurt,

We'll also be eating here. Where you order from a truck,

 and eat inside of a bus that was transformed into a dining car. I mean, come on! 

This is serious road trip stuff!



Lovin' all of this gemstone goodness.

So very happy it's the weekend. It feels like it's taken an especially long time to get here this week. Our plans include:
*West Elm's pop-up flower shop to load up on fresh flowers, and to buy this rug for our entry.
*Texas Food Truck Festival for lunch. Nothing can describe how giddy we get for food trucks!
*Trying to fix my indoor tree situation.
*Some al fresco dining at our fave local spot.

I'm obsessing over these pretty (and affordable) paintings. Decisions, decisions...



I'm totally loving this zebra print.
If you've been on Pinterest at all, I'm sure you've seen this lovely yellow scarf.
Monogram + bright colors + zebra = The perfect ipad case.
It reminds me of this Scalamandre wallpaper that I have obsessed over for years. Fun Fact: Did you know this wallpaper was created in 1945 for Gino's restaurant in Manhattan? Well, now you do!

If Kate Spade has it in her bathroom, you know it has to be good!

I also still want this pillow so very badly. I just can't justify $160 pillows that will be used by my dog more than myself.
kelly green and zebras - fun!
