Our guest room right now is just a collection of brown things. There’s a big brown dresser, a big brown desk, a tall brown ladder, a small brown side table and beige walls. Really painting a great picture of the space for you, aren’t I? While that list of brown probably means I shouldn’t add another brown thing to the mix, I’m really digging the idea of this headboard. I’m thinking it has ‘weekend project’ written allover it for my Red Head and father-in-law. Hope they’re as excited as I am! And don’t fret too much about the brown, I’ll balance it all out in the end. Large white matte artwork and a colorful rug, anyone?

With Labor Day come and gone, it seems summer is officially winding down. Boo hiss grr. But let’s just stare at this collection of 45 beautiful cabins and make summer last a moment longer.

Holiday Mondays are the best. An extra morning of sleeping in, an extra day of holiday sales and an extra day of catching up around here is just what the doctor ordered. I’ve got a growing to-do list but first I must tend to those sales… Get ready, Mall of America! We’re coming for ya!
We did it, friends! We made it to Friday and we have the added bonus of a day off on Monday in honor of our accomplishments. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Enjoy Labor Day weekend and I’ll catch you Monday to kick start next week. Until then.

Today I went on a Pinterest binge and then organized my pinboards. Really moving mountains over here, clearly. Follow along with my pinning sprees here. They’re pretty fun and, of course, the best distraction.

It’s only Wednesday. Can we talk about that for a second? The way this week is feeling, I could have sworn we were nearing Friday at a faster pace. Maybe it’s the looming work deadlines and the early wake-up calls but I am so ready for the holiday weekend ahead. On Friday I’ve got book club (heavy on the wine and snacks, light on the book talk), Saturday one of my best gal pals is coming to down with her main man to conquer the Minnesota State Fair with us (I’m coming for you, Australian Potatoes), Saturday we’re seeing Book of Mormon (so excited about this one!) and Monday… well, I might just take a deep breath that day. Either way I’d like to jump ahead to all that fun now. I’d also like a giant disco ball delivered to me via my window. Anyone else?

I happened upon the H&M Home section online today and, once again, was a’lookin’ and a’likin’. Lots of cozy textiles and awesome trinkets to bring us into fall. Definitely keeping this selection in mind for future house projects, housewarming gifts and retail therapy moments (They happen, people!).
Also, on a completely unrelated note, if I told you how many times I watched this clip today you would judge me. That Blue Ivy, she’s something else.

Sunday… we meet again. Thankfully you’re shaping up to be pretty great: dinner with family, sleeping in, a walk with the pup and maybe an afternoon adventure around Minneapolis. Color me excited and enjoy these links from around the web this week.
I hate to scare you, friends, but Labor Day weekend is so, so close. Where has the summer gone!? I simply cannot believe it. Thankfully, this is shaping up to one of the quieter weekends this month so I plan to savor it. Quiet mornings, turning pages in a new book and some afternoons with my Red Head and a cocktail. Yes, please. Hope you’re able to enjoy the same!
