reality strikes.

My thoughts are all over the place today; we’ll call it “vacation brain.” Or maybe the more proper term would be “reality brain,” since that’s what hit us the moment we got home from our mini-vacation. (Actually, if we want to get specific, reality struck about five hours north of home: thank you, flat tire.)

Upon arriving home, Jordan and I were greeted with termites and holes in our apartment that, despite repeated promises, have not been removed and/or fixed, and legally, our lease isn’t up until July 1. What seemed like a short wait is proving to be more than my patience can handle. This morning we had to have four new tires put on my car, and a freelance design project keeps coming back to haunt me; plus I’m still waiting to receive payment from two previous projects. All this in addition to having to schedule a doctor’s appointment (perhaps my least favorite thing in. the. world) before the end of the month.

Let’s just say I’ll be glad when the weekend arrives.

Until then, here’s what I would be spending money on if a) I had an inexhaustible supply, and b) I wasn’t spending it on tires.

I think this is a man’s watch, but I really don’t care.

I love this cabinet. I'm not sure what I'd do with it, or where I'd put it, but I love it.

I actually have something similar to this that I picked up at a yard sale; now I'm thinking of replacing the current mirrored piece with a chalkboard.

I love every piece of artwork in this shop, but I think I’d hang this one in our home.

My Target sandals are falling apart, and these would make a nice replacement.

These are just what I’m looking for to put in the windowsill of our new kitchen (still crossing fingers about that, by the way), though maybe in blue and yellow. I think I’ll find them for much cheaper…

This lamp is overpriced, but the style is perfect.

Your scattered mind looks a bit like mine these days.

And by the way, I must have memorized the IKEA website or something, because I SO knew that that cute little cabinet was from IKEA!

(I am going there tomorrow to get my desk & hopefully a new desk chair!! Hurray!!)

Hmmm...I had NO IDEA what to get you for upcoming I have a few more to the ever-growing list. :)

I could find a nice spot for that cabinet myself.
