Five Things….

I missed you. And my kitchen. And secure internet. But Hawaii was wonderful and I’m so glad I got to visit a new-to-me (and beautiful) state! You can see some of our travel pictures here.

I’m having a lazy Sunday today, catching up on emails and cleaning. Here’s 5 things I’m currently thinking about:

1. To Read: Wicked. I love reading, I’m always making lists of what I’d like to read next. Even if I’m only half way through my current book… Also I just purchased Amy Atlas’s book and I’m excited to get it in the mail soon and browse all the pretty dessert tables!

2. Lusting over: I’ve made it a goal this year to buy something designer. I don’t think I ever have before. I remember the very first designer item I ever owned: a Dooney and Bourke bag my parents got me for my 18th birthday. I’m dreaming of getting a pretty Kate Spade wallet; currently crushing on this one and that one.

3. Wanting to cook: Tacos! I love tacos in the summer. I think these pretty mushroom and lentil tacos look divine and I’m excited to make lots of taco variations this season.

4. Currently browsing: Kelli Murray’s blog. Beautiful lady, beautiful family, beautiful pictures… what’s not to love.

5. Goal for the week: Fill my fire pit with gravel. It has come to my attention that this may be a good idea for when it rains… makes sense. We were planning a family cookout around the fire pit tonight, but we may get rained on. Oh well. I’m still making it a goal to fill the bottom with gravel sometime this week.

Out of Office….

Hey guys, guess what? I’m on vacation with some of my family.

Yeah, I know. Vacation. It’s awesome.

I am visiting the beautiful state of Hawaii for the very first time, and loving it so far (we just landed yesterday morning). This means two things: 1. My week is probably going to be pretty awesome. 2. I will not be able to cook or hang out with you guys this week. Bummer.

BUT. We gots lots of stuff happening over at A Beautiful Mess; lots of pretty projects and travel photos. So if you’re online already (and I already know you are…..) then you should go hang out over there this week.

xoxo. Emma
