Weekend Wrap Up 9.24

September 25, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

My favorite thing, of late, is weekends at home. They have been pretty sparse lately but the Red Head and I are doing our best to make them a priority. They’re the perfect excuse to fall asleep on the couch at 9:30 with a glass of wine and a giant dog, make getting up in the morning so much easier and have really helped us tackle little house to-do’s on our (terrifyingly long) list. Today’s tasks include painting the guest room/office. We’re going dark blue! It should be coming together in the next few weeks so follow along here and enjoy these links from around the web this week.

Going Gold

Every day for about the last week, I’ve spent some time out in the garage spray painting. Everything is going gold at the Erickson casa, it seems, and first up was this steal of a bench from IKEA. We needed a seat (we had been using the bench from our dining room) for the desk in our living room and at $24.99 and about $15 in spray paint, this one fit the bill. Let’s see how it holds up to everyday use, that will be the real test!

It’s live! It’s live! After many weeks of anticipation, the Mall of America 2016 fall look book is here! We worked with some of the coolest cats in the game (Sarah Edwards, Brandon Werth, IKEA, the list goes on…) and I’m so happy with the results. If you’re local to Minneapolis keep an eye out for the printed look books as well. They may just appear at your doorstep!

Weekend Wrap Up 9.18

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Another wonderful wedding is in the books! The venue was beautiful, the band came to party and there was Spotted Cow on tap so everyone was happy. I’m still coming down from the high (and nursing a lingering headache) as kickoff for the Vikings/Packers game approaches. Enjoy these links from around the web and I find a cozy spot to watch the game!

Jet

ebb + flow :: jetting

Another weekend, another adventure. After a quiet birthday celebration, the Red Head and I are jetting to Wisconsin this weekend for a wedding celebration. One of my roommates from my Rome study abroad experience (8 years ago… what?!) is getting hitched! Now sure how the time went to fast, but I’m excited to see these two lovebirds tie the knot. Hopefully. I’ll catch you Sunday when I get back to town! Have a wonderful weekend, friends.

Fantasy Football

September 14, 2016

ebb + flow :: do better

For the second year in a row, I’ve been roped into a Fantasy Football League with the Red Head and his co-workers. I’m, at best, a poor participant. Last week, I forgot to add a kicker to my lineup (apparently, this is a problem) and I told the Red Head ‘I’m going to do better.’ Here’s a public declaration to try and, at least, fill my entire lineup for the rest of the season. I’m all about little goals or should I say field goals? Ha!

As I’ve mentioned before, The Red Head and I have a serious project on our hands with the purchase of our new home. It has good bones but needs to be brought to the 21st century in almost every single way (Exhibit A). We’re tackling the basement first so we can set up a livable and up-to-code guest room, guest bath and comfy TV space. From there, we’ve got another bathroom and our kitchen atop the list and much, much more. Rather than taking over my Instagram feed with snaps of paintbrushes, rugs, accent tables and demo, I thought I’d start a separate IG account to record the fun. @HouseTwerking was an obvious username choice. Be sure to follow along!
