Weekend Wrap Up 4.20 April 20, 2014 No Comments

ebb & flow :: weekend wrap up

Happy Easter, friends! It seems our weekend has been non-stop family, friends and eating. Lots of eating. And lots of baking. Those two go hand-in-hang, though. And just when I thought things were winding down we just finalized some more plans to eat, so I’m running out the door for dinner. Hope you had the greatest day and a wonderful weekend!

Easter Weekend April 18, 2014 No Comments

ebb & flow :: easter weekend

It’s Friday. YES! I am so looking forward to this weekend. What started as a quiet and relaxing couple of days on the calendar has quickly become non-stop action for the Erickson household. We have plans with friends tonight, a 5K in the morning, birthday and Easter celebrations tomorrow, more Easter celebrations on Sunday and another family dinner Sunday evening. I definitely don’t think we’ll be hungry by the end of it all! I’ve been put in charge of dessert, muffins and fruit so I’ve got some baking today tomorrow in between celebrations! Wish me luck and have a great weekend!

After spending an evening dodging raindrops and a morning battling snow, these images were the beauty and calm I needed to see. These photos, taken in Botswana by Zack Seckler, are something out of a dream. The color palette is perfection, the zebras are beautiful and I want to hop on a plane right now to see these scenes in person. Amazing.

Added to the Office April 16, 2014 No Comments

ebb & flow :: oh my deer roald dahl print

I snagged this little number the other day to hang in our office and was so happy when it arrived! Since I’m anti-hanging things, I’ll likely just clip it to a clipboard to display it or swap it for one of our hanger spots. We’ll see where it ends up for good but it was an easy sell for me. I’m pretty much a sucker for anything Roald Dahl-related and the little gold flecks don’t hurt either. Here’s to always looking lovely!

Blustery Mondays kind of make you feel like you should be surrounded by white walls, green plants, organized shelves, fresh linens and a bit of calm, no?

Weekend Wrap Up 4.13 April 13, 2014 No Comments

ebb & flow :: weekend wrap up

Two of my gal pals were in town this weekend and now that they’ve left my house feels so empty! It’s quiet, there are empty wine glasses in almost every room and I’ve been replaying all our adventures over and over in my head. For a quick 36 hours we accomplished quite a bit: a Twins game, Junk Bonanza, two trips to Hunt & Gather, a night out on the town, way too much delicious food and so many good stories and new memories. I think they should come visit every weekend! Wishful thinking. While I wrangle the wine glasses and start the dishwasher, enjoy these links from around the web this week.

Take Me to Gramercy Place April 10, 2014 No Comments

One of my many weaknesses is trashy television. I often find myself sucked into Long Island Medium marathons, Real Housewives (of any city) reunions and I watch more hours of The Voice than I care to admit. It’s an issue, but there’s one show I just can’t give up and it’s Flipping Out on Bravo. I love the bickering, the crazy clients, the swearing and, most of all, the beautiful homes, especially Gramercy Place. You catch some pretty good glimpses of the space during the episodes but these pictures have me drooling. I want to move in and I want that bar cart and I want to hang out with Zoila. Please?

New Dinner Favorite April 9, 2014 No Comments

ebb & flow :: Crispy Shrimp Pasta via Kevin & Amanda

While browsing Pinterest the other day I came across Kevin & Amanda’s recipe for Crispy Shrimp Pasta and immediately bookmarked it. Many of my recent favorites have been Kevin & Amanda creations and, like the others, this one did not disappoint. The Red Head and I both couldn’t stop sneaking pieces of shrimp while the noodles were finishing boiling. I highly recommend it and can’t wait to pair it with more summer grub in the months ahead. Do yourself a favor and bookmark it as well!

Drake Report April 8, 2014 No Comments

ebb & flow :: drake report

Drake is growing like a weed these days. At eight months old, I keep noticing things around our house that just aren’t quite like they used to be. Rugs, my sanity, our floors and a couple pairs of slippers, to name a few, have all been made a little less pristine by the presence of the monster above. Thankfully he’s cute and he’s cuddles cure all, because he’s a test. Hey, at least, he matches our decor!
