It Was Us. We Let the Dogs Out.

I love this clever shirt from National Mill Dog Rescue, an incredible organization that rescues dogs from puppy mills.  They have 10 days left to their goal of selling 500 t-shirts so hurry and get one for yourself and everyone you know. Because when you wear it people will be like “oh, hey, that person is funny AND they like dogs. That’s good people right there.”

This sweet ikat organic cotton swaddle blanket would be a perfect gender neutral gift for baby.  (Also, the best gift for new parents.)

CIA blows up Twitter with first tweet.  Who knew they’d be funny!

California license plates are going 1960s retro. Which would you choose: black, yellow or blue?

Butter in your coffee? I don’t know but it sounds delicious.

The Starbucks Frappuccino truck is sooo pretty!

Please be true.

This limited edition S’well bottle that holds a whole bottle of wine (discreetly!)…need it!

Frozen’ queen teen impersonator is truly inspiring (and gorgeous).

Just bought this outfit and can’t wait to wear it.

A pretty brilliant ad.

An adoption campaign where the dogs did the rescuing (5,000 of them to be exact!):

P.S. Do you ever think about how you might customize your license plate?  Like a tattoo, I don’t know that I can fully commit to something enough to go through with it. What would your custom license plate say?

“Hey”

My coworker showed me this awesome cat video (I know, right? What it is about cat videos that are so endlessly hilarious?) This one is no exception — the cat that says “hey:”

I was almost in tears (especially when it zooms in and softly says “hey”) and then I felt pathetic because all those “hey”s reminded me of the sappy Felicity series final tribute. Did you ever watch that show? LOVED it!

Happy Friday, friends!

Sweet Etsy Shop: Little Low Studio

Do you ever get the impulse to make every wall in your home a gallery wall? I see art and prints sometimes that make me want to keep adding to Declan’s wall of framed illustrations and watercolor animals…but it’s not organically arranged, they’re perfectly spaced and it was planned just for the six frames currently up there so I fear it would look sloppy to add more and I really don’t want to take them all down. wah.

You can get a peek of how they’re hung in this precious photo by our fantastic photographer friends Brandon + Kristin Kidd:

I totally have the temptation to add more prints and art up there, especially after I found these Little Low Studio prints.  And I know Mumbles would approve of the vintage car set – he totally loves the Thing. And it all coordinates with the color scheme in Declan’s nursery nicely (which Mumbles could probably care less about).  This pack in particular is a handy little set of 5×7 cards so they’d be super easy to frame and add up to the gallery wall – maybe two on each side or maybe even all lined up in a row along the bottom! (hey, now that’s an easy solution!)

So now that I’ve tackled the nursery issue, I still want to gobble up a lot more of the beautiful prints from this shop and frame them for various gallery walls that have yet to be made in our home.  Like this stunning American map with floral representations for regions of the country.  I love that navy.

And how fantastic would this be as a gift for the garden-lover in your life?  Like sugar, that’s how sweet.

Have you found any fun Etsy shops lately?

Bed Making

Do you make your bed?  I most certainly do not.  Mumbles and I always say that our marriage works because we’re equally messy and making the bed is something we definitely agree not to do.  Though, he kicks the covers off and I love to curl up all cozy in them so sometimes we make the bed just so he can freshly throw his side of the covers onto me and I can snuggle up just so.  Made for each other!

Anyway, it seems the making the bed issue has really struck a cord with lots of folks lately.

Will anyone stand in solidarity with me on the not making your bed front?  Or, do I need to get my life together a little more and start making my bed every morning?
