On Tumblr

May 19, 2009


I’ve decided to start cataloging some of my favorite images on a Tumblr blog. It’s so much easier to scan through the archives on Tumblr than to sift through all my bookmarked links on Delicious.

Speaking of Tumblr, check out this photography blog I’ve come across. I love how the URL is named “Audrey Hepburn Complex.” Lots of beautiful pics, with the occasional image of Audrey Hepburn and Zooey Deschanel.

Dark Night of the Soul

May 18, 2009


NPR is streaming the album “Dark Night of the Soul” right now, a collaboration between Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse. Some of the artists on the album include the Flaming Lips, Julian Casablancas of The Strokes, Nina Persson of The Cardigans, and James Mercer of The Shins. If you’re a fan, make sure to check the album out on NPR, as it may not ever be released for sale. Let’s give it up to record companies! Not.

Then and Now

2 years and another child later, Ryan is still the biggest goofball dad.

And two years later, I still get freaked out when dad jumps over the babies.

diy mother’s day

May 11, 2009

One of the things I really wanted this mother’s day was to make a Lizzie Fortunato-ish necklace or bracelet. Of course that entails me going to the craft store alone and some quiet time piecing my spoils together. Heaven! So here is my knock-off prototype.



And here’s the real deal.



And lastly, mother’s day isn’t quite over for me yet — I’ve asked Ryan to take me to Sprinkles this Friday. I hear it’s supposed to change your life. My own homemade cupcakes are pretty kick-a*$, so I better not be disappointed!
