It’s Wednesday! And if I’m being completely honest, what I’m REALLY loving is that tomorrow is my last day of work for over a week!
But I’m loving this stuff too.
Mid-Century Modern dresser I found on Craigslist (apparently it’s been sold since I wrote this). It’s located in Richmond, and since it’s already gorgeous and doesn’t need any TLC, it’s more than I’m willing to spend, but how pretty is this? It’s been on CL for over a month, and every time I scroll past it, I sigh & think about how much I want it. They’re asking $370 for it, which I do think is a really good price, and I’m in love with the color. That peachy-coral color is so pretty, and would looks so pretty as a pop of color in an all navy & white room. I’m definitely on the hunt for another MCM dresser to refinish while Graham is away, and (as long as it’s already been painted), I’d love to paint it a bright color like this one.
I finally got tired of the stainless steel fridge & it’s lack of functionality. Yes, it does it’s job and keeps stuff cold. But it always looks dirty, and you can’t use magnets on it. So I constantly had each weeks menu washi taped to it. Then, thanks to Pinterest, I started using dry erase markers on it. But unfortunately, after cleaning the fridge with the stainless steel cleaner, the marker would no longer stay on it. So, I went to Michael’s, found a sheet of what is basically chalkboard contact paper (sorry, I can’t find a link to it on their website), stuck it on the fridge and bam. Problem solved. They included a few pieces of chalk with it, which work fine, but I bought some chalkboard markers and use those. They come off really well with a magic eraser, and once it’s dry, it’s ready for the next weeks meals!
These little fruit bars from Trader Joe’s are SO good! They’re basically a grown up, more substantial fruit roll up. And they’re pretty inexpensive, only $0.99 each. I buy a few every time I go in there (which is every few days…) and keep them in my purse, my desk at work, and the console of my car for snacking emergencies. And the ingredient list? Nothing scary & unpronounceable: Apple Puree Concentrate, Apple and Pear and Elderberry and Strawberry and Lemon Juice Concentrates, Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds, Citrus Pectin, Natural Flavor, Apple Fiber.
Last year I discovered the wonder that is the maxi dress. I bought three, and two maxi skirts within a one month period. Someone described them as a dressier version of yoga pants, and that is such an accurate description. And I LOVE this maxi dress from Old Navy. I actually bought it last weekend, and I love it. I love that it’s not crazy long (all of my Target maxi dresses drag the floor, which is super annoying), it’s super soft, and insanely comfortable.
I love this whale tail ring holder from West Elm. I have a little ring dish on my nightstand already, but it was actually a gift from my ex, so I hate putting my wedding rings in it. It’s very, very pretty and was handmade by his aunt, so I felt bad throwing it away when I purged everything else back in 2008. All this time I’ve never really thought about it, but I’ve recently began taking my rings off when I sleep, and it just feels wrong to me (is that insane?). So, I think this whale tail needs to make it’s way to my nightstand.
