I've been on Instagram more than ever lately, and thought I'd share some of my life via the camera roll lately. If you're an Instagrammer, look me up here. I ain't even gonna lie - this is a photo-heavy post, ya'll.

My first pair of Vans EVER. These babies are way past due. I can't seem to remove them from my feet.

Dinner last week - mussels in a beer/tomato broth - I was craving it alllll the live-long day, and this recipe satisfied. Nom nom nommmmm...

I was putting something away last week in my closet upstairs, and saw my wedding dress hanging there, so I did what anyone would do - put it on. Sigh. I miss wearing it.

New Kate Spade candy-striped bedding in mah bedroom.

Hung a curtain rod on the wall outside the kids' room to display their art. Melikey.

Triptych I did for the kids' room several years ago (copied from a CB2 shower curtain). I finally got around to hanging it a few weeks ago. 

Cool mid-century artwork I scored for fiddy cent at a garage sale for the kids' room.

Simon (aka Larry Mullen, Jr.) banging the drums. Bono - I'll be calling you to set up an interview...

Took the kids to our local School of Rock this weekend for a trial class. They had a blast. I just wish it weren't so damn expensive. Ah well.

It's never to early to have an Easter egg hunt.

I always feel like somebody's watchin meeee....

Ahhhhh, great end to a great weekend.

Surf's Up

I had a bit of a pinning frenzy the other day - all surf-related artwork. Here are my faves...

What are YOU obsessing over these days? Share. This is a safe place.

Random (p)Inspirations: Regrets

That I never moved to California. 

That I was not at the Top of the Rock the day that Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm photobombed all the tourists.

That this shirt is not already in my closet.

That I don't still have the macrame pot sling that hung in mom's house the entire time I was growing up.

That this quinoa salad is not in mah belly!

That I don't have an excellent vignette in my entryway.

That I didn't dye my hair pink 20 years ago.

Sad Trombone

I just CANNOT with the Oscars' recap. Why? Because they underwhelmed me immensely. This is all I'll say...Why was Phil Dunphey doing color commentary with Giuliana Ransik on the red carpet? And two - this was the best look of the night, as far as I'm concerned...

But wait - there's more! Did you see the back?

Kate Hudson was the only one who made me gasp out loud when I saw her. Even It Girl Lupita Nyong'o, who looked beautiful, did not knock my socks off when I saw her like I did in that red dress with cape. Granted, I totally teared up when she won, and she gave my favorite speech of the night - amazing - with Jared Leto's speech a close second. Go figure. Jesus in a Tuxedo BROUGHT IT.

So I'm not going to do my usual recap, because there was a whole lotta skin-toned boring dresses, as far as I'm concerned. But who did YOU like? Share.
