April Showers April 24, 2014 No Comments

ebb & flow :: april showers

In a fit of optimism the other night I did the winter/summer wardrobe swap. Talk about jumping the gun! Minneapolis has been served with some showers, some cold and a whole lot of yuck these last few days so those cute sundresses have yet to leave their hangers. Our house got so chilly last night that I was bundled with two blankets in front of our roaring fireplace (catching up on Game of Thrones, of course!). Maybe tonight I’ll add some tea to the equation to help kick the cold while daydreaming of summer days! Hey, at least tomorrow is Friday!

That Veil April 22, 2014 No Comments

If you live in the Twin Cities or surrounding area, you’ve probably heard Falen or “Meat Sauce” on the radio during your morning commute. Well, now you can put a face to the voice because the two hilarious radio personalities were married on Friday and my pal, Brandon, captured the whole thing as only he could. Every image, as expected, is AMAZING but that veil blew my mind. So beautiful. So, so beautiful. Check out the rest of the perfect details here.

ebb & flow :: a well read woman is a dangerous creature.

For book club this month we’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled choices and everyone is picking their own book. I’m super excited because we have some avid readers in our group that always seem to finish a title or two in addition to our selected book so I’ve got some catching up to do! And, of course, some awesome recommendations from the gals. Here are the few I’m considering. Am I missing any must-reads?

- One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak
- Inferno by Dan Brown
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

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?
