super long list of links, likes, and everything I've been doing as a couch-living person with a 5 week cold.


So I kind of went obsessive on this post. I can't help it. I have been sick going on five weeks (1, 2, 3, 4, 5!), and I can't move around much as my knee is all fucked up (fibro has a mind of its own and just goes crazy on different parts of my body for no reason).  So here is my crazy post. Enjoy!

Really love this free printable. Print one out and fill it up! 

This photo of a pink-garden room from the blog Old Brand New is amazing! This is by far one of my favorite blogs. Simple and full of brilliant photographs and room tours.

This art wall is perfect! Totally inspires me to make a similar vignette of some of my art in our dining room (which is soon to be my new studio!).

This set of valentine boxes is amazing! Love all the little details and each one has a sweet note inside! I want to make a set but am not sure if I could do it without getting super perfectionist-anxious-crazy. Yeah, I'm a little weird with projects like this...

This pocket door is gorgeous! We have two ugly ones in our house and I am going to see if there is a way to update them like this.

I'm wanting to update our kitchen cabinet and drawer hardware. Love these cabinet pulls from Anthropologie.

This baked popcorn chicken with maple dijon dipping sauce looks so yummy! Definitely on my recipes to try list.

I'm going to start baking bread too. I wanted to do this years ago, but then when my fibromyalgia came around, my arms and wrists had too much pain to do much of anything, let alone knead bread! Now that my pain is better managed, I am going to try this Olive Oil and Rosemary Bread.

This cocktail looks so good! I think it would be a great Summer drink.

I love this picture. It makes me want to go sit in the green and cry for hours. They would be sad tears, but healing too.

This card case is brilliant! I am wanting to get a palmistry guide, tarot set, and vintage Ouija board. I know it may sound weird, but I don't believe in any of it personally ("not that there's anything wrong with that") but still find it fascinating in an oddities sort of way.

This dress is amazing! Would love to wear it on a road trip!

These skeleton hand hair clips are too cute!

I love these boots and they are on clearance! Too bad they only have them in size 10. Sad Face...

My ears are listening to these songs over and over:

Front Street— The Gutter Twins

Hung My Head— Johnny Cash

Beacon Hill— Damien Jurado

Crawling Back to You— Tom Petty

Blood Bank— Bon Iver


My eyes are watching:

Mad Men (just finished rewatching the entire show, so good!)

Bates Motel

The Americans-- if you haven't watched this yet, start!

Baby Boom-- Diane Keaton is the cutest thing ever!



Despicable Me 2

All the hilarious things our pups do


I have been eating:

Juicing with broccoli and fruit (broccoli juice is so scary at first--and brown! But surprisingly yummy and not gross!)

Seltzer (I drink this stuff like an addict)

Cheap chinese food

Carnitas from our favorite local Mexican place

Frosted Mini-Wheats (sick of these but easy to throw in a bowl for breakfast)

Bourbon in little whiskey glasses with R before bed

Peanut butter on a whole grain tortilla —easy to make sick person food. Also, if I'm ever dirt poor and living alone, I will eat this every day.

Iced Americanos 


Thinking about and planning:

home remodeling (never thought I'd be so excited about bathrooms)

home decor and room arrangements- a spare room turned dressing room, new bedroom setup, and dining room studio space.

all the things I want to cook

fitness and health planning

my Etsy store

making a zine

how to make our marriage the best ever

adventures we can go on with the pups

how to get over my social anxiety, even online 

things I might want to do in my life that would be scary but potentially awesome (like helping people with special needs/disabilities)


  1. I'm excited about home remodeling too once we get a house! Fun things. Great lists :)


I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
