Ski Lodge Getaway

I am so excited to report SweetPea readers, that I am finally going on a trip! Yippeee! Tonight my guy and I are loading up the car and heading north for a ski getaway in Thompsonville, Michigan. I am so excited to hit the slopes and learn how to snow board! Here is my getaway outfit, perfect for a snow bunny! (The only thing I don't own is the back pack, very unfortunate). Either way, I like any excuse to rock fair isle print with heeled lumberjack boots :). Happy weekend!

I used to take my eggs, if ever, only one-way: scrambled. Lot's of salt and pepper and almost burnt to avoid any "egg" taste. Recently though, thanks to my guy, I have been introduced to eggs-over-
easy and let me say, it changed my life. I can't get enough of the delicious, oeey gooey "egg" taste that I used to HATE.  Now, I love any style of egg. Poached, sunny side up, over easy, and recently, I even tried them on a hamburger! Gah! (Very French of me I know). Now that I consider myself an egg enthusiast, I think I need these adorable egg shapers. They shape your egg to a lovely flower design and would make entertaining for brunch extremely easy! How do you take your eggs?

Have a Fantastic Friday!

Oh joy it's Friday! At last! I am so excited because tonight my roommate from Paris, and her roommate are coming in from Florida to spend the weekend with me! We will probably do a lot of wine drinking, catching up and eating at yummy spots around the city! What are you all doing this weekend? Whatever it is I hope it's fabulous and I hope the weather is nice wherever you are!

If your a pattern or fabric junkie, this website will keep you preoccupied for hours!

I need to find these food trucks!

You can now get Laduree on the internet! Their candles are heaven scent (ha!)

I need this print for my wall ASAP.

I wonder if I will ever resort to buying community desk space in Chicago?

So, I still have two rooms in my apartment that I would like to paint. One, which is my entry hallway and the other, my bathroom. For my bathroom, it's a very small, typical bathroom apartment with hardly any space but for a shower and sink. So, the only real decorating you can do is with a fabulous shower curtain, which fortunately I have! That said, I think I want to do large, horizontal, heather grey stripes to accent the shower curtain and add a little more pizzaz to the space. Here are a few of my favorite striped rooms from around the web. I can't wait until my apartment is finished and I will be posting all my pictures. (For those of you who have followed me from the beginning, this is a long time coming!) Happy Friday!

"Oh What A Beautiful Morning... Oh What A Beautiful Day"

Ok, so I am totally aware of how much of a bad blogger I have been recently! I have been so busy with work, family and personal life (and I am not going to lie the weather last week got me down and pretty lazy) that I just could not find the time or inspiration it seemed! However, what better day to get back on the horse than the "day of love"! I am assuming it can be translated into the "day of forgiveness" as well and therefore you will all forgive me for my pathetic and embarrassing slacking.

That said, I am all giddy inside today because I had a fabulous weekend and the sun is shining here and it is above 30 degrees! REPEAT: ABOVE FREEZING! It feels like I am on holiday and I have been smiling all day.

Then, I came across this amazing print and it just pushed me over the edge into almost hyper-happiness. The Smith's reference is just so darn smart and sexy. Happy Valentine's Day's to all the lovers, the haters and the apathetic lazy souls that don't give two shi$%'s about today because, well, we've all been there. XOXO

So the genius graphic designer Andrey Kolb has amazingly turned Lady Gaga's "Telephone" into a 50's style children's book. I have no words except sooooo cool! If I had children they would totally have this. Check out the entire "story" here. I wonder what Gaga would think of this....??


How AMAZING is this heart cake from I Am Baker? The heart is red-velvet. YUM! This blogger is one of the most talented bakers I have ever seen and her blog is full of mouth-watering and visually remarkable treats! I wish I could order this cake because I don't think I have the patience or skill to make it. For those who are braver than I, here is the tutorial. Happy Wednesday!

Snowed In!

Well the blizzard of 2011 finally hit Chicago! I am holed up in the apartment, cozy and warm with Tinkerbell and made some chicken tortilla soup! Hopefully I will be able to get down to Starbucks tomorrow so I am not working from home for the 3rd day in a row! I will need these to get around for sure!
