Glee Gum!




















I origianlly just bought this because it shares the same name with my new obsession, GLEE, the tv show...but now I buy it because it is sooooooo good.

Hens & Chicks



These are the favors from Claire & Chris's wedding, and they're also the only plants that have survived in our apartment longer than one month.

Adam had to request notification when they were back in stock, so there are finally three sets in our kitchen.

Unazukin Doll



So, this is quite possibly one of the creepiest things I own. It's from Japan and it has a little electronic something in it, so if you turn it on and ask it a question it shakes its head yes or no. Here's a video for an example.

It's cute though, right?

Italian Paintings




















Finally found some frames for the hand painted pictures my parents got for me on their trip to Italy last spring.

Hanny's





















Went here for some food and drinks after work tonight.  It's a restaurant downtown that used to be an old department store in the 40's and 50's.

We met the Simpsons



at the Great American Beer Festival. See also this picture, which features Adam's epic pretzel necklace.

This was in my grandparents' house, and can you believe no one else wanted it?! I think it is awesome.

The Farmhouse


























This is an awesome little restaurant in downtown Gilbert that serves breakfast and lunch.  It is so good!  Megan, Dan, Moira, and I went here for Lunch this afternoon before I drove Moira to the airport.

Chili for dinner




because it's like 40 degrees here right now.

Disney's Vinylmation


























So, my sister's and the rest of Megan's bridesmaids went to Disneyland this weekend for her bachelorette party.  (JEALOUS) They brought back these gifts for me!  They're from a series of "blindbox" Mickey Mouse Vinyl toy figures!!!  Each one in the series is designed by a different artist.  The Panda Bear is by Dawn Ockstadt, and the patchwork one is by Rachel Sur.

Yes, you're so very helpful, sitting there while I'm trying to read.

Pillowcase Progress



I took a study break this afternoon to watch football and work on this. It's going to take me like five years to finish because I have like 20 more lanterns to go.

Brew at the Zoo



So, we went to this event at the zoo last night, and I forgot my camera. And then because it was a beer event, I ended up taking this with my phone as we left so I would have a picture to share with you. Now (the next morning because yes I am cheating), I realize it is kind of lame, but it's all I have, so sorry.

Retro Locker


























This is an awesome locker that was in the garage at our family's cottage in Michigan.  I asked my parents to drive it back to AZ!  It was my Mom's in the 60's.  I'm going to put it in my living room to the left of my balcony door.

Vintage ice crusher


























My mom brought this back from Ohio for me.  It was my Grandmother's.  It's pretty cool, but really rusty...hopefully I can clean it up.

Starting a new project

I sewed this pillowcase today, and now I'm going to embroider Japanese lanterns on it...

Almost done, but I ran out of buttons...
