I need to spend less time on Pinterest...

…and more time working out. I'll get right on that. In the meantime, check it:

I made this kale and brussels sprouts salad. It tasted EXACTLY like the one you can buy at the Whole Foods deli so don't waste your time. I love that salad by the way.
I waffle between wanting to give up coffee and wishing I had a beautiful set-up like this in my house
can someone find me a sconce like this in brass (you heard me) that is under $150?
you people are great finders, I have no doubt you will come through (Amy, Jen?)
a couple of birds send me images of beautiful chevron quilts in an attempt to get me over to the dark side. the dark side of sewing. it appears to be worse than a heroin addiction.
my new work bag, the Bleeker Legacy tote from Coach's mens line
their mens bags are sturdier and they aren't all manly
a splurge for sure, but he's so pretty!
I really wanted it in Ocean but didn't have the stones to be so bold
I know I will bitch about all the hard work, but I can't wait to finish our landscaping!
So many pretty photos, so little yard.
and lastly, the only thing better than Ryan Gosling pins…
happy pinning

If the Mitten and the U.P. could ride a bike...

I'm trying to keep in the habit of blogging so you may have to suffer through some weak posts. The Never Ending Project, also known as our house, continues to keep us busy. If you ever consider owning an old home you had better like working with wood - fixing, stripping, sanding, staining, etc. etc. Bernie decided to take on a little project like making our pocket doors pretty and functional. I wanted to paint the small upstairs hall which turned into the hall, the hall ceiling, and the stairwell. I get to climb on a ladder placed awkwardly on the stairs and risk my life two floors up. Stupid idea. More to come on all of that. 

awesome tee-shirt courtesy of my friend Danielle - took me a minute to figure out what the hell
if you don't get it, you probably aren't from Michigan

Favorite New Things - Kitchen Edition

the best butter dish ever
I know, most people don't get excited over a butter dish.
But it is a pretty blue and it comes with its own knife and a place to hold it.
A local purchase at Hazel & Dewey
