I want to go to follow a rainbow to a party! The original post on Oh Happy Day! shows this used for a child’s party, but I’m almost 30, and I’m still really into this. Not that I live in an idyllic tree-filled suburb. Or am actually almost 30 (okay sort of - 1 1/2 years left!) -b
Headed to central Texas this weekend! San Antonio date night tonight, and Garner State Park camping tomorrow night. I’m excited to spend some time outside in the gorgeous Texas hill country before it gets crazy hot (usually it’s full on summer heat, upwards of 95 degrees, by the end of May and on through September.) I’m also pleased that I date someone who owns a tent, so I don’t have to. I think we’re going to try and do all the cheesy touristy things, like the Alamo and the wax museum, and hopefully that will include a late night margarita-fueled River Walk amble. See you guys on Monday when spring break is over and it’s back to real life! -b
Design For Mankind has posted some amazing photos of natural beauty recently…this one is originally from the Discover Channel. It’s rice fields! -b
uuuhhhhh. guys. we need this.
Wait, what. I feel like this looks so much nicer than it would be to live in. -b
Eleanor Tinsley Park is my favorite park in Houston. It runs along Buffalo Bayou from Shepherd Drive to downtown; it’s gorgeously green most of the year and if you’re in the right place on the trail, you can pretend you’re not in the city! It’s a dreamy place to run or picnic when the weather’s nice. -b
Hello! I’m in Boston, where history is everywhere. I’m visiting my friend Vanessa, her boyfriend Derek, their baby Adexa, and Sammy the pug for the Thanksgiving holiday. Here’s a sneak peek of what I’ve been doing!
-Trying on ridiculous winter accessories! Muffs, anyone?
-Finding my dream house (Tenenbaum’s style manor on the edge of Boston Common—check out the rooftop garden.)
-Chillin’ with statues
More to come. Winter weather is nice. -b
Bird feeder DIY at Design Sponge. I wanna make it!
Which is ironic, because due to an irrational fear I’d lose my shit if I came into contact with a feral bird. -b
Balcony Update 2
I have found that most of my succulents need to be able to get a break from the sun (it has been routinely 104 degrees this summer!) I got these plastic planters super cheap at Home Depot, and added some extra holes for drainage. The happy ornamental sweet potato vine came from my mom’s garden. -b
