your typical boring filing drawer - blah.

clean out those files, kids!


before + after from design*sponge. a really great summer project idea. it would look great with some decorative stencil pattern on the front or a cute painted border. { i think it may need bigger plants + bright colorful flowers to balance out the intensity of all that painted metal. }


{ weekend in review }

July 6, 2009

my weekend…

consisted of dogs, cookouts, the suburbs, the boyfriend, friends, good food and good drinks! it was fabulous. we did all the random things you always say you’ll do… but either find something better or run out of time. on our friday day off, we went to the columbus zoo (and kind of aquarium.) i will have to give my official review on cbus v. san diego in an upcoming post. we developed a scoring system with no functional basis or rational reasoning. stay tuned. 

… followed by a friday night cookout and drinks on the patio. saturday was the day of the mini golf tee off and championship title. (taken by myself – pictures can be found here.) then dinner at haiku with our friends. 

today… sigh… was bittersweet. not only did the end to another weekend arrive… but andy roddick fell short in the wimbledon championships. watch this clip of andy at the last place he wants to be after such a close match with rodger — a press conference. bittersweet. 

and so another monday is here. hope you all had a lovely 4th of july weekend! xoxo

beach biking = perfect past time
don’t they always? hope you had a great one.

just getting around to uploading some of my beach vacation photos – check ’em out. i wish i could be there now! turns out, i found the most perfect pastime. and yes… it’s even mixed with exercise! beach biking — not only do you get to enjoy beautiful scenery, you have constant wind a/c + you get a very lovely + even tan! {i know.}

** happy sunday night **

yummy.this is my idea of a perfect weekend cook out. 

this weekend i will be raising money for cancer research with 700 others during crawl for cancer. a pub crawl with 30+ teams this year. can’t think of a better way to fundraise than on a patio with friends and a sunny afternoon. hope you have a great weekend, too!
