WIPEOUT- they really do mean it literally...

via ABC
This weekend my friend Derek Greene was on ABC's "Wipeout"! It was exciting to see someone I know but fearing for his safety while he performed death defying leaps.. not to mention a series of painful-looking hits to the noggin! My whole family got together to watch and cheer for him as if we were there in person. I can now say I personally know someone who was on TV and is famous (if even for just his glorious 5 minutes). How about you? Do you know anyone or have you ever been in the lime light of Hollywood!?

Hope you had a great weekend!

Rain Rain Go Away

It's a crummy, rainy day here in the Midwest and is only going to get colder this weekend. Despite our rather hot and sticky summer thus far, I am craving a beach getaway.

Happy Thursday!

Happy Friday

 Summer-esque weather is finally upon us this upcoming May weekend! Wishing I had a hammock to unfurl in with a good book. Hope you all have a relaxing weekend!
Happy Friday!

Just a POP of Lichtenstein

Drowning Girl 1963
Andy Warhol may be one of the most famous artists of the Pop-Art genre but Roy Lichtenstein is my personal favorite. His works are reminiscent of comic books excerpts with cheeky quotes and captions.  Some of my favorite classes at university were my Art History classes. Now that it has been... (well a fair number of years since college) I haven't seen his works in a long time and today I came across this awesome print sale on My Habit (an Amazon partner). They have curated a pretty great sampling of his works and are super affordable.
What do you think? Who's your favorite artist or favorite piece of work?
Kiss V 1964
Ohhh... Alright... 1964
Thinking of Him 1963
 These two aren't available for purchase but are some of my favorites!
La Cara (The Face/Head) in Barcelona 1992
Whaam! 1963

Happy Wednesday!

Tuesday simply doesn't count...

“You can't help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn't spell it right; but spelling isn't everything. There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesn't count.”- Winnie the Pooh 

Having a case of the Tuesdays.. kind of like Mondays but without the fact that you were just coming out of the weekend. Who wants to run away and hide in a bungalow like this with me?!

Happy Tuesday Folks!

Trompe-l'oeil Milk Bottle Makeover

 One of my favorite hobbies is baking.. as you can probably tell by a number of my previous recipe posts. However as OCD of a person as I am, I often lose/ misplace/ (am-convinced-they-run-away) my measuring cups. Then I came across this insanely cute solution from Anthropologie. (Side-note: Don't we all wish our dwelling looked like an Anthro display!?). This milk bottle is like the Russian nesting doll of measuring cups. Plus its pretty enough to leave out on the counter as decoration! A bit steep in price at $24.00 but may prove to be worth it instead of consistently replacing the plastic kind!

And now for some fun Friday Links:

Happy Friday!
