Snug as a bug in a rug

Aren't these rug patterns so chic

I get cranky when I don't eat. Ask RC- he will tell you.

We are going to Palm Springs this weekend to celebrate my cousin's graduation! Should be fun (and hot)!

ps- I went with the mint bike!

JCrew + Old Navy Look Alikes

So, I love to shop. I also love a good bargain. And as much as I love JCrew (their catalogs are always so inspiring-yes?), I don't always love their price tags. At JCrew, I'll faithfully purchase investment pieces, like a little black dress, or a great pair of slim fit dark wash jeans, but for everyday wear, I'll stretch my dollars just a bit more. Check out these JCrew look alikes I found at (you'll never guess!).... Old Navy! 

                                     jcrew $88                                                      old navy $29.99 

                                     jcrew $198                                               old navy $29.94

                               jcrew $158                                                             old navy $29.99

                                      jcrew $98                                                         old navy $24.95

                                                jcrew $275                                     old navy $33.97

                                      jcrew $88                                                       old navy $16.99 
                                          jcrew $198                                                   old navy $14.99

What about you? Are you a JCrew or Old Navy shopper? 
Or both like me?!

I like to ride my bicycle.... (or I will when I get one)

So, it's been awhile!

We are in Arizona and loving it so far! I'll write an update post shortly, but wanted to start with this fun find! 

After living in San Francisco, you would think that I would have a sweet bike. Uh- no. I don't. But I need to get one. We have a little trail close to our new place that is perfect for bike riding  (but only in the early mornings or after the sun goes down- hello? It's Arizona and it's hot here!). While RC has a pretty fancy bicycle, I like one that looks cute more than one that has 'extras'. 

While looking for a my new ride, there were some cute options at the big box store (Walmart and Target) but those were all just 'okay'. Take a peek at these sweet bikes I found on Craigslist (of all places!).  
vanilla / lime / mint / red / pink

And for those ladies who prefer a little toughness to their bikes: 

I think I like the mint colored one. Which one would you get? 
Stay tuned this week for the one I picked.!

Home Tour 3 (con't)

Here's our living room. This is where we spend the most of our time.

Couches: Compliment of Ryan's grandparents, these white leather couches have served us well. Our overnight guests let us know how comfy they are!
Mirror: Target (a clearance find!)
Clock: A great find from Ross
TV Stand: Workld Market
Bistro table and stools: A wedding gift from Ashley Furniture

This shot shows just a little bit of our 'home office'. We recently upgraded to dual monitors and I can't imagine going back to just one screen. I made the Pottery Barn inspired pinboard above the desk.
Desk: Ikea
Chair: It's Ryan's. I'm not sure where from...

Table runner: World Market
Coffee Table: World Market
Rug: Costco

Console table: World Market
Grandfather clock: (appropriately!) Handmade by my Grandfather
Lamp: Marshalls
Black double office drawer: Container Store
Wine rack: Target

And that picture of our wedding party is on a canvas. Having our friends with our on our special day really made the entire wedding perfect. The cozy blanket on the corner of the couch with our names and wedding date on it, was a thoughtful wedding gift!

Today, our living room is quite bare, as we're packing up to move! 

**San Francisco friends, do you love our white leather couches? PLEASE let us give them to you! We plan to get new couches and I'm sure the pair would look great in your home! Let me know and we will arrange something!
