in the news: once again sam

did you see once again sam on southern living's daily south round up last week? if not, check out the article here. i love seeing the makers of greenville getting some well-deserved time in the spotlight. sarah mandell is the brains and beauty behind these curious cameo pendants, and she also just launched an entire new spring collection. she and her husband run their studio out of greenville, and you can find her at all sorts of events around town like indie craft parade and various trunk shows. i have a little bunny pendant that i absolutely love. it's perfect for easter, and i'll be wearing it all spring. pick one up for yourself at urban digs if you're local, or snag one from her etsy store. she even does custom orders at no additional cost!

i enjoy cooking, but lately i've just been so exhausted when i come home after a stressful day at work that the last thing i want to do is worry about making dinner. (this is where i graciously thank justin for letting me eat all of his extra servings and leftovers.) so when i got a coupon for plated, i figured i would give it a try.

diy inspiration: night stands

i was hoping to have a fun (aka easy) ikea hack for you on the blog today, but i ran into a bit of a hiccup this weekend…justin was taking a nap and i just couldn’t wait to get started on the handles, so i tried to tackle them myself with my very, very limited knowledge of power tools. long story short, after a few miscalculations and tears, justin woke up and promised to help me fix it…i just haven’t emotionally prepared myself to go back to it yet. so instead, here are a few pictures of what inspired me to redo our night stands in the first place:

unbreakable kimmy schmidt

what a crazy week it's been. things are finally calming down though, and i'm ready to plop in front of the couch a watch unbreakable kimmy schmidt when it premiers tomorrow on netflix. (yes, i'm already done with house of cards...aren't you? it's been a week!) as a die-hard 30 rock fan, i'm so excited for tina fey's return to tv...even if it's only writing and producing. with ellie kemper (erin from the office) starring and jane krakowski (jenna from 30 rock) making a few appearances, i know we're in for some good laughs. plus, it's about a girl who breaks free from her underground dooms day cult and embraces modern life in new york city. it's hard to even write that without giggling. if you haven't seen the trailer yet, check it out below and make some time to watch the premier (or every episode) this weekend.
