My dear friend, Caitlin of Sacramento Street, asked me to share 10 Things That Make Me Happy on her blog today. Here’s a sneak peak; a few things look familiar, yes? You can see links, prices, and why I chose these items (and six more things that make me happy) by clicking over to Sacramento Street. At the very least, you might get a few great gift ideas!
In other news, I put up my Christmas tree and added white drapes to my living room over the weekend! Pictures will come in a week or so. Stay tuned!

For sure these Alexander Wang leopard wedges- I love love love the comfort of wedges and animal print anything so these sum me up to a T!
8. What section of Netflix will the DVD be filed under: Action and Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Musical, Romance?
Thank you so much Erin! Inspirational, as always. And I’m pretty sure a Rachel McAdams/Ryan Reynolds combo would sell out theaters nationwide!

I mentioned last Friday that I had a guest blog post over on La Dolce Vita yesterday, but I’m assuming many of you were getting your tan on or grilling hot dogs with your loved ones and didn’t get to your computer. To that I say, “Bravo.” Now that things are back to normal and you have some time to kill, I encourage you to check it out. It’s the transformation of my home office from January to now, and it features one of my favorite DIY projects: the makeover of my ho-hum, oversized bulletin board. I didn’t include the step-by-step process of how I transformed the cork board, so I thought I’d share it with you here.
I should preface this by saying I used the tutorial on Bryn Alexandra’s blog but tweaked it a bit as I went.
1 oversized cork board
1.5 yards of duct cloth
6 packs of upholstery nailhead pins
1 can of spray adhesive for fabric
approx. 10-20 mini nails

This is just impossible. Pete and I have been together for six years and have lived in DC (together), New Orleans and Austin (apart), Houston (together) and now, finally, Chicago (together) over the course of our relationship. I think Wes Anderson would have to direct it, and each city would be its own chapter. He would use those fabulous dioramas, and make us seem wickedly funny. Plus I’d finally get that hipster cred I so crave; which would be nice since Pete has refused my requests for him to grow an ironic mustache (surefire ticket into hipster hearts).
Alaina, thank you so much for letting me participate, this was seriously SO much fun. I have loved reading everyone’s, and I am just dying to see yours!

Since I’m one to love winter more than summer, cozy spots more than sprawling spaces, the cute little English cottage in ‘The Holiday’ would be the perfect backdrop to my movie. Oh the charm and romance of that little place!
