Yikes. What a week. If you follow me on Facebook, you’ll know that last Friday my laptop’s keyboard decided to stop working. You know, no big deal. Except it was a huge deal because I wasn’t just Pinteresting around that day; I was working on wedding invitations that needed to be sent in to the printer. So, Mr. Lemon (my hero) ran home on his lunch hour to help me save the invites. The laptop’s saving is a bit more involved and we’re hoping that it’ll hang on a bit longer. Then I got a new (free!) phone on Monday. And we’ve had to replace our dishwasher. Basically, I’m slightly freaking out over all of the changes. I’m someone who likes things the way they are :) But definitely let me say that it is a blessing to be able to have these things in the first place.
Wednesday I had a dentist appointment to get a filling. So in an effort to cheer myself up beforehand, I drove to a town about 45 minutes away to check on a bar cart I’d seen on Craigslist. The woman keeps her items at an antiques mall, but I’d emailed her on Tuesday so it seemed like a safe bet to make the trek. After scouring the place for an hour with no luck, a phone call to the woman and talking with several sales associates, it was finally realized that the bar cart had already been sold. Five days ago. Huge bummer. But, as my consolation
prize purchase, I picked up a set of bronze nickel flatware for $15 (photo above). I’m in *love*. So at least the journey wasn’t completely fruitless.
raspberries + peaches + alcohol = these look beautiful and delicious
preparation + spontaneous beach trips = sign me up
kraft + neon = a party I’m hoping to throw
vintage + bar cart accessories = heaven
google reader replacement? = me thinks yes
