Big Star – Thirteen

Won’t you let me walk you home from school
Won’t you let me meet you at the pool
Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I’ll take you

Won’t you tell your dad, get off my back
Tell him what we said ’bout ‘Paint It Black’
Rock ‘n Roll is here to stay
Come inside where it’s okay
And I’ll shake you

Won’t you tell me what you’re thinking of
Would you be an outlaw for my love
If it’s so, well, let me know
If it’s no, well, I can go
I won’t make you

Amazing – The Invisible Bike Helmet

As someone who really loves biking, I am so excited by this. It may be expensive right now but I see it as the beginning of something amazing.

I’m taking a SkillShare class on Surface Design. This is the first assignment that I’ve completed. It’s been amazingly fun!

Chile Verde! Yum!


Now that fall is in full swing in Minnesota, Chris and I have been making soups like crazy. Just last week we made this and this. On Monday, while looking for a chili recipe, I stumbled upon this awesome Chile Verde recipe on the Kitchn.  It was exactly what I was looking for. Something warm and cozy with a little kick.

Still gets me every time…

These two songs/videos were basically why I went to art school.


umm…is it weird that around 1989, i knew how to do this dance? i’m kinda old…

Favorite Interiors

Chris and I are thinking about finally pulling our place together and getting a bit more grown up with our decor. These images are what I’ve been collecting for inspiration. So bright and lovely!WeekdayCarnival

Short hair, don’t care!

And since my hair grows super fast, I’m excited about all these styles that I’ll get to try out in the next year or so.

My sister’s dreamy wedding



A few weeks ago, our little family spent a long weekend back in my hometown, Chicago, to be a part of my sister, Kapan’s wedding. It was a wonderful weekend! We arrived early Thursday afternoon and enjoyed a quiet evening with the family before the start of the whirlwind weekend. Then the next day a group of us met up at Ken’s (my sister’s new husband) grandparents house and spent hours into the night decorating and fluffing pompoms in the backyard. I remember that night thinking I will be glad never to see a pompom ever again!

The big day began with a rush to get everything completed on time. Since this was a DIY wedding, parts of it felt a little hectic but everything came together in the end. The bride and groom looked beautiful and it was the dreamiest garden party wedding I’ve ever attended. comboIMG_3003IMG_3017 IMG_3035
