Weekend Wrap Up 8.28

August 28, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

I’m back from the other side of the Earth! And I’m actually (kinda…) functioning today. A full recap of our adventures will come later this week, hopefully. I’ve got quite the stash of photos to sort through first! While we catch up on laundry, unpacking, errands and puppy cuddles, enjoy these links from around the web.

ebb + flow :: Du-BYE!

Oh my word. After the LONGEST week ever, the time for our departure is quickly approaching. We’ve got nothing packed, very few things planned but a serious adventure ahead. I’ll keep the horrible pun I’ve been rolling with going and sign off for now with this… DU-BYE!!

Catch you when I’m back on the 28th!

Shoot Time

August 15, 2016

ebb + flow :: shoot time

This week brings the biggest photo shoot of my career thus far. Just the scale, logistics and timing have me anxious but I’m pumped to share some behind-the-scenes action along the way and, of course, the final product as it comes together. Follow along here and forgive me as I’m quiet these next few days. After three mornings of 3 a.m. wake up calls, you wouldn’t want to hear from me anyway. Ha!

Weekend Wrap Up 8.14

August 14, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

I can’t help but laugh at myself right now. I’m sitting on the floor with a blanket from college, a pillow behind my back and my computer on the floor beside me. I’m surrounded by laundry, half unpacked boxes and a snoring pup. To top it all off, I’m wearing clothes from last night that reek of bonfire and hair that hasn’t been washed in far too many days. I live a life of glamour, clearly. But I’m on cloud nine because I had the best weekend with my gal pals. Two nights in the woods of Wisconsin with those ladies is really good for the soul. I am so lucky to have them. While I laugh to myself about the memories and shenanigans from this weekend, enjoy these links from around the web this week!

Governor Dodge

ebb + flow :: governor dodge weekend

I’m hitting the road for the 6th (or is it 7th?!) annual girls camping trip with my best pals! I’ve been a serious basket case of nerves and stress this last week as we juggled moving, an overnight out of town, a day of recovery from said overnight (when will I learn I’m not 21 anymore?!), commitments after work, early morning spin classes and a SERIOUS amount of water flooding in our new basement. So, I think some time around a campfire with cheap wine is just what I need. Governor Dodge State Park, I’m ready for ya.

ebb + flow :: dunes

I had some odd things on my to-do list the last couple days, the most curious of which was booking a dune buggy adventure in the deserts of Dubai and a day trip to Abu Dhabi. What is my life?! Ten days until we head to the UAE!

ebb + flow :: zzz

Big news! I slept on a mattress last night. A mattress on the floor, mind you, but it wasn’t a couch so I count it as a win for the new house. We are struggling with the tiny bedrooms at our new abode. We had our sights set on a beautiful new king mattress and upholstered bed frame but that quickly got downgraded to a queen bed with a very narrow headboard and frame once we busted out the measuring tape. We’re planning to order one of these bad boys later this week so I’ll be sure to report back on how it works out. Next up on the search: very narrow bedside tables and the narrow headboard!

Third Year + New Digs

August 5, 2016

ebb + flow :: birthday + home

Yesterday was a smashing success around here, friends. The giant grey dog, Drake, celebrated his third year of life (at what age will he start to CHILL OUT?!), we closed on our new house and moved a trailer full of stuff without killing anyone or each other. Pretty successful, no? We capped off the night with two pints of Ben & Jerry’s and a RedBox. Now, we tackle moving the rest of our stuff from storage, tearing down walls and the serious home to-do list. I’m going to be documenting all the fun with the #EricksonReno on Instagram. Be sure to follow along!

ebb + flow :: paint time

Tomorrow! Tomorrow the Red Head and I close on our new house! It’s full of ugly tile, odd rooms, stained carpet and a bathroom that teleported straight from the 70s. Get excited to follow along as we make it ours, one paint stroke at a time.
