I experienced a first yesterday. I went thrifting for most of the day and came home with NOTHING. My bank account is thankful but I was really hoping for some gems. The hunt continues, I suppose. Maybe my adventures to Door County and Chicago this week with unveil some treasures for the new house. It’s going to be quite empty to start but I’m up for the challenge. While I brainstorm my remodel plans, enjoy these links from around the web this week.
I looked at the calendar the other day and had a slight panic attack. This is the last weekend until mid-September that I’m in town and don’t have major plans. You know what that means? Time to hit the town thrift shops! We’ve got a new (old) house to fill (closing in two weeks!) and I’m on a budget. Let’s hope the bargain gods are good to me this weekend!

Travel lessons the Ericksons learned last night:
- If your flight is delayed, take the risk of missing your connection and hustle like a crazy person through the Atlanta Airport. It will pay off.
- The light rail blue line only runs every hour after midnight on weekdays. Plan accordingly or you’ll be sitting in the terminal station for thirty minutes in the middle of the night. It gets weird down there.
- This is the best purse/backpack/travel buddy ever. You need it in your life.
- Sleeping in your own bed with your giant dog, even if only for a few hours, feels pretty darn good.
So, needless to say, it was an eventful night of travel around these parts! But after a relaxing few days in Myrtle Beach I’m back in Minnesota putting some final touches on an exciting project and catching up on everything else we put on pause the last few days. Though hectic, it’s good to be back!

Well, friends, I’m signing off for the next week or so. The warm (SUPER warm) shores of Myrtle Beach are calling my name. I am so excited to not set an alarm, tackle a good read and soak up the sun (and, likely, a few too many cocktails). Catch you on the flip side!

Photooooo shoooooot timeeeee (Oprah voice!). Things will likely be quiet around here for the next few days as I wade through all things back-to-school at Mall of America. Potential behind-the-scenes action here, follow along!

If anybody is working on a high-speed tunnel from Minneapolis to Chicago, I would like to invest in that endeavor! I have spent more time on I-90/94 this summer than ever before and this weekend was no exception as I celebrated the beautiful wedding of a dear friend back in the windy city. The gelato, the tunes and the radiant bride were just a few of the highlights. Now, I’m catching up on life back in MN and gearing up for a busy week that includes our back-to-school photo shoot. Watch for sneak peeks here and have an amazing Sunday night with a few links from around the web this week!
It’s me, Elissa. Can you please slow down a bit? Pretty please?
Your biggest fan,

A very important purchase I made this weekend at Golden Rule. Now, where to hang it?
