Is it really Tuesday already? Where did the time go! I’m no physics expert, but I’m QUITE sure we enter some sort of time warp time during vacation, where the minutes tick by just a wee bit faster than normal. One minute you’re enjoying a nice leisurely lunch, and the next time you glance down at your watch, it’s strangely 11:30pm. I should’ve had one of these lovely clocks on hand to help me keep track of the time through all the whirlwind fun and relaxation!

Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! I’m taking off early to squeeze in as much R&R time as I can. Hubs and I are staycation-ing, which I’m oddly excited for as it involves no packing or airport security. Looking forward to checking out Smorgasburg, celebrating my friend’s birthday, outlet shopping, seeing The Hangover 2, and laying out in the park to read and watch the clouds drift by…this is the kind of to-do list I could get used to :-)
Whenever hubs and I go off on a car adventure, he drives and I navigate…and sing at the top of my lungs until he begs me stop. Can I just say how happy I am to be living in an age of GPS and smartphones? Due to a horrendous sense of direction, road maps are indecipherable blobs of intricate lines and squiggles to me. We would honestly be driving around the block in circles if that was my only resource. Luckily technology saves us from a very sad fate of no vacations, and maps in our house are strictly decorative!
Why yes, I am picking out decor for my totally imaginary, yet totally fabulous beach cottage. It’s important to prepare for these types of life decisions, you know.
Who couldn’t use a little furry sidekick to help ease a case of the Mondays? This shirt by dandyrions offers all of the cuteness of a fox stole without any of the guilt (or creepiness). Even PETA must agree!
We’ve made it through another week – whew! I always look forward to the weekend because 1) Sweatpants, here I come! and 2) It’s the only time I eat breakfast. I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I am so not a morning person. It takes all of my brain power just to dress myself correctly in the mornings, so coffee is all I can handle on weekdays. Weekends, on the other hand, are for eggs benedict and Applewood-smoked bacon and cream cheese-filled muffins and buttery croissants :-) Hope your weekend is full of good eats!
I can’t stop ooh-ing and aah-ing over this whimsical photoshoot by Elena Kalis, who specializes in underwater photography. She so beautifully captures the surreal world of Alice in Wonderland in these photos – that first image of Alice jumping through the looking glass is pure magic! Check out more photos in this series, along with an interview with Elena, here.
Rainy days (more like rainy week) call for happy inspirations, and if that rainbow chair isn’t happiness personified, I don’t know what is!
Note: I just realized that all my posts this week have included vivid pops of colors. My subliminal mind seems to be yearning for rich hues as I don my black raincoat and boots every gray morning…
