New couch!
Well here it is. Soak it up. The beauty of our first mutual furniture purchase. The Corona sofa from Macys of all places. I love it. LOVE. I don't get to use it for 6 months but no matter! I can picture all of the exciting things that will happen on this couch. Ryan's decided to* make a movie of the couch's life with us as newlyweds watching a movie, our future huskys snuggling with us, our future kids opening christmas presents. It'll be like a part of the family.
Oh and we got it in the dark color like the chair you see. Cafe Noir. Swanky.

*"decided to" could also be replaced with "thought about briefly" or "probably won't"

Cinderella Shoes
It's probably no secret that I'm kind of obsessed with gold. So..naturally I want gold "Ever After" shoes for the wedding. Yes, I know I'm channeling my inner princess. Any opinions about these options (or where I can find exact replicas of those shoes)?

I'm kidding about the exact replicas...I think.

Visual Cookbook

This is just further proof that everything in life can be made more visually appealing. This cookbook from Ikea (..of course) is all Swedish recipies as of now but if they release an American one I am all over that.

Vintage Botanical Drawings

So inspired by botanical drawings. These were done in the 17th century and changed the face of classifying plant life. I just love the way science needs art and the other way around.

Oh and happy birthday to me! The fiance is taking me out tonight for a surprise!
