Shiny Black Boots

I bought these the other week for $40 at a thrift store called Yellow Jacket in Lincoln Park, Chicago. So they're not exactly my size (1.5 too big), what are ya gonna do...can't really beat that price!

Quick Hello

Hello blogworld. It's been awhile. I just wanted to say hello and apologize for being mia these past few weeks. Laissezfaire was kind of enough to add me to her "blogs to watch" section, and I really wish I had some new stuff to post about. In case you're wondering, my life has been fairly routine. So routine in fact, here is my latest meal, just about as boring as they come.I'd like to be back in to the blogging shortly. After my finals are over I will return!! I really do miss you all!

Better Wall

This is cool. Limited edition museum posters available at Better Wall. They are pricey, but how fun would it be to hang one of these say, in your dining room, or above the bed?

I haven't picked up a new Domino yet, but blogger Frolic! posted about a spread they have on Tartan. I think Tartan is just a name for this kind of fabric/design also known as plaid (but I could be wrong). Either way I'm loving this trend for fall and trying hard to find the right ways to incorporate it into my wardrobe. Never thought to incorporate it in the home as well.

Econ Schmeecon

I'm feeling sad lately because my entire life has been taken over my economics, statistics and game theory. Interesting as it may be, I'm losing touch with my artsy side. I just flickr-googled the word "econ", how lame. Someone had taken a picture of their econ homework. They were probably in a similar state of mind to where I'm at right now.

Would you believe it if I told you I understand what's written on this page?
This could make a cute pillow case I think...
Back after mid-terms. In the meantime I'm enjoying All Things Ordinary, Abstract the Day, and Found now Home.

All of These Things...

are on sale at Anthropologie for under $100 and the blue heals and grey flats are actually under $50. Nice! The size selection is limited, but I would recommend perusing if you're in the market for some cute out-of-season shoes for cheap!

My Mom and I collaborated on a Halloween costume. I designed the outline and started laying down the Sears Tower. She really pulled through and added all of the little touches. Oh, and made the actual costume that Maxine wore. Too cute. "Maxzilla!"

It took a looong time for the cat fights to settle down. Here was Nerms before:And now everyone has found a heating vent to call their own. Life is good. And my visitor leaves tomorrow. Goodbye Cassidy. It's too bad you and Nerms didn't become better friends...
