Remember when I wrote this cryptic post and Instagram-ed from odd places for a few days? Well, the fruit of those mysterious musings is live! And beautiful! And makes me want to bear hug the people I work with! And overuse exclamation points! Check it out here!

This image was the final piece of the guest room re-vamp puzzle that has been rolling around in my head lately. We’ve got beige-y neutral walls, a headboard idea, the perfect spot for a navy accent wall and I’m all about orange, minty and charcoal accessories. Game on, guest room. Game on.

A good tune for your Tuesday. So delightful. Enjoy!

Today, my friends, I turn the ripe old age of 28. I’m feeling in my late-twenties because, for the first time in a long time, all I want to do to celebrate tonight is eat dinner with my husband, read a book, journal and go to bed. Throw in a fire and puppy cuddles and this could shape up to truly be the best day ever! Signing off until tomorrow to bask in the birthday glory and the puppy cuddles. Mostly, the puppy cuddles.

My house is a construction zone right now and if you know anything about my obsessive need to tidy this is torture. I’m typing this post while staring at a gaping hole in the ceiling, there is a very loud sawing noise coming from our front porch, occasional nail gun shots and the Vikings game on blast. Good news, though, this is all for a good cause; we’re finally wrapping up a bunch of projects around Casa de Erickson. That means that I’ll be painting, touching up, taping and touching up some more in the weeks ahead but my paintbrushes and I are ready. One way or another, we will have all the trim in this house white by next summer. Mark my words! While I fuss over the sawdust and noise, enjoy these links from around the web.
It’s feeling like fall around here lately. I’ve been bundling up for my walks with the beast (I even busted out mittens on Wednesday morning!), pinning way too many pumpkin recipes, breaking in new (pre-spending freeze) boots and starting my days off with a large cup of tea. I, for one, am pumped! Fall brings lots of birthdays, anniversaries, travel and work for the Erickson family this year so there is much to look forward to. So, two thumbs up for the dropping temps, the sweaters, the football games and the lazy nights fireside. Bring. It. On.

As one on a spending freeze should NOT do, I found myself on a site this afternoon having a major sale. Then, in a slippery slope of events, I spotted this floral gem and emailed it to way too many people asking their option. It’s way outside my usual neutral color palette but I keep coming back to it. Do I dare?

A couple weeks ago I received an email from the lovely Jaclyn over at Popover. Her site, as I’m sure you can tell, is overflowing with beautiful, thoughtful and well-curated content and I was honored to be included in the mix. Check out a post about our humble Minneapolis abode and follow along as I wrap up my Popover Instagram takeover. Thanks for having me, Jaclyn! It has been a blast!

I’ve got enough costume jewelry to choke a horse, but one thing I’ve been drawn to lately is delicate and simple pieces of quality jewelry. Oftentimes I can’t justify the cost (I’m currently on a spending freeze… If you need a reason why, please look at the Red Head’s new ride!) so at least admiring is free! And Vrai & Oro and Moorea Seal have plenty to see.

Well, everything I wrote in this post on Friday turned out not to be true. We didn’t test drive a truck on Friday, we bought a truck on Friday. The couple of quiet days I had anticipated were booked suddenly booked back-to-back with events, projects and errands (the Red Head didn’t seem to mind since that meant more time in this truck!). Today is already disappearing but I’m still optimistic I can finish my book and save a little bit of truth to my Friday post. Fingers crossed! As usual, some links from around the web this week. Enjoy:
