The Chelsea Buckle Tote

UPDATE: Looks like they’ve brought the bag back due to demand. AWESOME. A couple of weeks ago this vegan friendly, no leather purse was featured as the daily sale item over at That sale price plus a coupon code that I stumbled across during my daily blog reading (check out Holly’s selection of daily [...]

Long day at the office

He wonders how much longer he can withstand the grind of daily photographs and is thinking about demanding an increase in cheese. It wouldn’t be so bad if when he got home at night he could relax with a stiff cocktail, but do you know how hard it is to pour a double without opposable [...]

I pal around with terrorists

My friend Cami stopped by the other night for the first time in several months. She’s been attending BYU since August, and her schedule prohibits consorting with shady characters like myself. Funny that it doesn’t prevent her from dressing like a jihad tool. SHE IS SO SNEAKY.

Public service announcement

We currently have about 14 different projects going on right now to the point that our lives are no longer our own, but everything is going to be wrapping up later this afternoon when Jon and I will finally be able to resume picking on each other and complaining about the weather. That means regular [...]

Orla Kiely small notebook

Yet another notebook, I know, but I could not resist picking this up while I was at Anthropologie. If you haven’t ever heard of Orla Kiely, have I got a treat for you: go here and explore. Let’s just say that I want to be buried in one of those patterns. Couldn’t find these on [...]

Jon’s cubicle

Off to the right you can see one of the tens of thousands of stacks of paper on his side of the office. I like to call his seating area The Booby Trap.


A few months ago I bought a bulk-sized bag of Mike and Ike’s at Costco because I thought the assorted colors of the candy would look cute in a glass container in the kitchen. Thing is, none of us really like them and haven’t ever touched them. Time to find them a new use.

Our in-house recycling plant

When Leta started preschool a year and a half ago I let her take a book with her every day to help her through the transition. I would have let her take a stuffed animal or a blanket had either of those things been the object that brought her comfort, but you may have noticed [...]

Woodcut floral file folders

I’m a huge fan of Joy Deangdeelert Cho’s work (you can see her fantastic blog here), and knew that she had created a limited edition set of file folders available exclusively at Anthropologie stores. I was so happy to find them at the one in Los Angeles on Monday afternoon when we had a few [...]


You think it would be fun to climb in there and get all snuggly with them, but there’s something about the whole warm dog smell, a combination of paw stink and hot bad breath, and I just ruined this picture for you, didn’t I?
