Happy Weekend

We’re taking off tomorrow for our first vacation away from the internet in over two years! Even when we travel we always have an iphone nearby or usually work half the day. I’m excited to be completely cut off from everything. (I wonder if I’ll have withdrawals?) We are so lucky we have Paul’s parents who are so good with our kids. I don’t have to worry about them for a second. (Thanks D+L!)  I have some posts set to run while I’m gone and some DIY’s I’m excited to share. I’ll see you on the flip side!

ps: the photos above is of our new linen sheets. I’ve never had any before but they are common here in Europe. I think I’m converted! They are so soft and get softer the more you use them.

This is so clever! Perfect for picky eaters.

Gah! Have you seen the new dresses at Kate Spade?

Want to buy European style clothes for kids in the US? They are having a big sale!

I own three of these.

    Anyone have a suggestion for where to find quality inexpensive sheets. All the linen ones I am finding are $200 or more.

    I’m a sateen sheets girl myself — I love the silky soft cotton, but I must admit I’ve never tried linen ones. Have SO much fun on your vacation!!

    Okay, I desperately want to buy almost all of the dresses on the Zara site, but am I missing something? How do you actually purchase these? I don’t see an option to “Add to cart” or anything like that. Is online purchasing an option from the US? I’m quite confused–please advise! Thank you!

    I saw on your Babble post that you still sometimes have to think about where the fork goes when you’re setting the table. I’ll share my mnemonic device: the words left and fork have the same number of letters (four). So do right and knife (five). Therefore, the fork goes on the left and the knife goes on the right. Hope that helps!

    I hope you have a marvelous vacation. I’ve always wanted to visit the Greek Isles.

    So I too am one of you linen lovers. My husband and I are newly married and some of the advice we were given was to buy quality bedding. Any suggestions of where we can purchase linen?
