Humphries Living Room!

The Humphries have a great house and yesterday while Jeff and I were visiting in Austin, Kristen and I decided to go shopping for furniture! We found this great console table from World Market! Here are some accessories and inspiration for the room!



it has been a month!

It has officially been a month since I last blogged. I have been trying really hard to make finding a job my job. So far, I am getting very nice feedback... now I just need someone to hire me. I do understand that this is not the best climate for architects. But I will remain optimistic.

So, to ease myself back into things, I think it is best for me to start with something easy. Jeff and I have decided to redo everything in our house bit by bit. I of course feel like our art is dated and some of our furniture is dated as well. like le couch.

that I still havent replaced. I was going to get one from custom sofa design and then their website went down and I called them and got their answering machine. that made me shy away from them.

so I think we are going to wait a bit on the couch and make that happen around christmas.

but, we think our bedroom needs a redo. it is a very funny size right now and we are thinking that we will be moving in 2 or 3 years from houston anyways so we are going to get what we like right now and not worry about making it all fit in the room.

mainly it is our bed and our bedding that needs the change.

here are some inspiration pictures of what types of furniture we would like to buy and some artwork we would love to see around the house!

Also, some good people to follow on blogs and pinterest that I have found are:

Christine from Bijouandboheme.blogspot.com and Elizabeth Baughier from ejayne.net

Men's dress shirts, not just for men anymore!

Watch this video! I have to wonder when the frame goes blurry if they are hiding something... like how they are failing at the overall idea - but I won't judge. Now, I just need to find a shirt big enough to fit around my rib cage.

saw this on babble!


Back from the beach!

Hello! Jeff and I ran over to Daulphin Island with my parents for a few days last week and had a blast! The beach house my parents rented was dog friendly so Hank got his first taste of the beach! It was really relaxing and good to spend time with family!

Scout, my parents dog

Lots of fun things are happening now!
So my friend Julie is having her baby on Friday if Allie doesn't decide to come before! My friend Lindsey got engaged this past week which makes me muy excitado! She is marrying a real cutie and I cant wait till her festivities start!

As for the working front, I have been talking to this lady that I am obsessed with and I am so nervous about getting a job with her. She is on her honeymoon and I am going to meet with her next week. That could mean I could be working by next week, fingers crossed! I know I am a bit old for this but I still believe in jinxes so that is all I can say about it for now. Hopefully next week I will be able to talk about it till I am blue in the face.

So I have been on a reading hiatus lately (gossip girl problems) and I just finished reading Sarah's Key thanks to Lara for helping me to start reading again! It is really great and I flew through it. It's very deep and gut wrenching but an important part of history.

That is about all I have to share today. I'll have more after I spend some time at the local Houston Ikea.


Polyvore - Grown up's place for make believe!

Polyvore is my new obsession. I can sit on there for hours and play around! Have you tried Polyvore. Here is the gist:

You get a blank canvas and then to the right they have a list of things, such as, tops, shoes accessories etc and then you can also just enter the item you are looking for into search. Then you drag it over, size it and add text etc if you would like and tada! you have an outfit or a room or whatever you want! it is SO MUCH FUN! like grown up paper dolls or grown up doll house.
