if i had a million dollars: future home edition

it's not a secret.  someday i want to be a homeowner.  in the meantime, i am going to stash my homey ideas here at my little blog.  what i am loving:
i love the graphic rug and the navy wall.  it looks so good!
i love these new york skyline bookends.  what a cool, not lame souvenir from the big apple?
i love the old school/country/down homey feel of this.  i am still not sure how cool i am with hanging dead things around the house.  maybe i can find a plastic one.  but how cool would this look with necklaces hanging off it?

if i had a million dollars: what i would wear

 my husband is taking me to santa cruz, my FAVORITE town ever!  i don't know why.  maybe it is the beautiful beach.  maybe it is the great food.  or maybe it is the fact that i feel like i can dress like a hippie as much as i want and no one will give me weird looks.  i love you santa cruz.

adventures: Shaver Lake

My husbands family just had a siblings reunion at Shaver Lake, CA.  It was SO beautiful!  The cabin was huge and cool.  It backed up to a National Forest.  The lake water was warm.  We had a great time, despite the fact that Ollie had a bad fever the whole trip and I didn't catch any fish!
