Who's been following me around with a camera?




Can you NOT do that?

Can you turn it down?

Can you pass me that blanket?

Move these chips away from me.

Ice cream makes me cough.

That is SO not fair.

Do you want to split a cookie?

IS THAT A MOJITO?

That dog needs water!

Listen. Listen. Listen. Listen.

Where are you?  Where are you?  I'm waving.

Hide Verdict

A big THANK YOU to all of you who voted in yesterday's poll!!!

I thought it was only fair to show you the verdict. With the help of THE most chic and stylish decorator (and blogger) I know, Miss Caroline of Between Your Ears and The Apron Blog, I was able to choose the hide that would make my decorating dreams come true.


I know what you're thinking, "that waynch made me vote in her stupid poll and didn't even buy any of them? RUDE-AH." BUT Caroline helped me realize that while I definitely wanted the neutral colors in my hide, the markings on this particular rug had great symmetry.

I CAN'T WAIT TO PUT THIS IN MY NEW HOME.  USING ALL CAPS IS THE BEST WAY TO SHOW MY EXCITEMENT!!!

My future bedroom has wood floors so now I'm wondering if I would want it in the bedroom instead?  I could just use a sisal rug in the den by itself.  Don't worry, I won't make you vote in a poll this time.


And one day....THE DOUBLE HIDE.


OH NO SHE DI'INT.

Don't Report Me to PETA

What do these photos have in common?


Dead animals.

Don't report me to PETA...I will happily remind you that I live with a cat from the restaurant parking lot and so far she's worth around $400 in vet bills and various other expenses (bling collar not included).

But back to the point, I pulled all these photos for my "home inspiration" files and didn't even realize they all had hide rugs in them.  And you may have read me blog about my lust for a hide rug here.  Obviously that's a sign from the decorating gods that I need a hide rug.  And for the record, I envision the decorating gods to look a little like this:


The question is:  which hide is most fitting?  I'm mostly a neutral girl but I do have a lot of chocolate brown in my home decor...does this mean I shouldn't go zebra?  Help!!


Which hide should I buy?

Champagne Cork Wreath


I'm mildly obsessed with this champagne cork wreath I saw here.  I need to make this.  But I can't drink all that champagne, guhl!!!

Thankfully eBay answers all of my questions, always.

OR you can google something really crazy technical, like...."how to make a cork wreath" and just follow this guy's directions.


I'm. On. It.  Bottoms up, my friends!
