Thanks to all of the awesome bloggers who stopped by last week to share their back to school wish lists! It was awesome to come back after a long weekend at the beach (complete with a cover-to-cover read of the best 584 pages of fall fashion) and see all of the great comments that were shared!

What a lovely weekend, I’m sad to have to go back to the grind tomorrow. Despite some rainy weather, I had tons of fun celebrating my friend Taz’s birthday. Check out the delicious tasting flight of mini-cupcakes we enjoyed at tea at the Ritz Carlton. YUM.

Oh boy, I’ve really been slacking here due to some overwhelming days at the office and very full weekends!

After much debate, I’ve decide to stay in my apartment for another year, so now the ‘apartment fund’ has been switched to the ‘new couch fund’ with a couch-search that kicked off this past weekend.

After ruling out all of Ikea’s options which are scaled too small for my other bulky pieces of furniture, I browsed the sample-sale room at Boston Interiors. I found a few with good shapes, but poor color-choices, and some with great character, but unreasonable prices! I’m liking the idea of a floating-chaise because it adds a little bit more seating (and would be great for lounging!) So the search continues for the perfect couch in the perfect color at the perfect price!

More later on my other ‘adventures in decorating’ that came to be from some other stops this weekend:

A month late on my new year’s resolution, I’m jumping into the blogosphere. Better late than never, right? It took me a month to actually start because I’ve been obssessing over what to write in the first post.  After reading hundreds of design blogs everyday for the past year, I promised myself i’d start to be a more active participant and create my own space for collecting inspiration and tracking my endeavors in design.  After much encourgement, this is it, the first step from reader to writer, wish me luck!
