Little Bits for a Monday

Little Bits for a Monday

November 12th, 2012

This grey morning I feel in desperate need of a pick-me-up. Enter The Lumineers, an East Coast by way of Colorado trio, playing “an amalgam of heart-swelling stomp-and-clap acoustic rock, classic pop, and front-porch folk.” This track, “Ho Hey” is probably they’re most famous, off their eponymous, self-recorded 2011 EP. I dare you to hold still:

This weekend, Jacob and I hit up our local craft store for the first round of wedding supplies (more on that anon). I am now kicking myself that I didn’t get the supplies to make one of these genius DIY magnets. All you have to do is buy the plastic animal of your choice, saw it in half, spray-paint if desired, and attach a magnet to the back! Next time…


Speaking of weddings, we have the nuptials of a dear friend fast approaching, and I’ve been searching about for an appropriate dress. This gorgeous specimen from Free People is currently at the tip-top of my wish list:

Now that the holiday season is nearly upon us, I’ve been collecting ideas for festive libations. I was thrilled to come across the blog, The Boys Club, a collection of beautiful photography and delectable drink recipes. I’d love to try my hand at their version of the Sazerac:

Naturally, holiday drinks should be paired with a scrumptious platter of cheese and charcuterie. Trust PCC Natural Markets to come up with a perfect cheese board how-to.

I’ve also begun collecting ideas for a possible honeymoon in New Zealand, and have determined we absolutely cannot miss Fleurs Place, whose specialty is fresh fish straight off the Moeraki Bay fishing boats. Yum.

Here’s to the start of a lovely week.
