Just discovered this great little site Pendleton, I'm especially loving their Native American section!
Cute little heart ring
Wouldn't it be fun if your wedding ring cost only $88? I'm definitely seeing a trend of cheaper, less traditional wedding rings going around the blogosphere. Plus you can always get a different one later on when you have more money right? I like this one from catbirdnyc.

Called it!

I know this is completely unrelated to my usual blog content but I totally called this when seeing the movie Avatar. Its the exact same story line as Pocahontas but I still surprinsingly enjoyed the movie.
P.S. If you're looking for a real winner, go see Sherlock Holmes!

Home Decorators say what?

So my mom is working the Home Decorators Warehouse Sale this weekend. Let me break this down for you. Cheap home decorators stuff gets cheaper because its a warehouse sale gets cheaper because my mom is working at it. We're talking cheap furniture people. So I went through and found a few things I like (see above). warned...there are some questionable items on their website. I mean who in their right mind would design this lamp and really think they're contributing to the world?

But alas....among a sea of boring ottomans I found THIS HIPPO. I know some of you may have your doubts but I can just see this beauty of a hippo ottoman being passed through my family for generations to come. I hope to see you there little hippo!

So fickle...
Do you guys ever find your interior tastes changing due to the season?

I have myself convinced right now that this warm, rustic style is what I like. No doubt about it. But when Spring and Summer hit I'm sure to be back to these light airy rooms and clean lines. Oh how fickle I am.

Bits of My Week: CHRISTmas
Lots of fun wrapping gifts, making Christmas cookies, playing with Charlie, and eating out (and finding letter shaped ice!).
