Apartment Therapy

One design degree away from Emily Henderson (who did the prettiest things here and always here) and our bedroom? Yes please and thank you! Thrilled to see our bedroom featured on Apartment Therapy yesterday. Totally out of the blue. I'd love to spend time in any and all of these rooms and hop a degree to grab that Cross Blanket.

Here's our bedroom before: (yikes)

I have had waaay better luck transferring plants into containers before (it was a 7 a.m. hot mess), but that doesn't lessen the love I have for this succulent arrangement my sister and nephews sent over for good wishes in the house, plant style! I love them so much! Thank you!

Let Them Eat Cake

Adventures in Cooking
How amazing is this brown butter pumpkin cake from Adventures in Cooking? Come over for your birthday so I have the best reason to make it. I'm going to start putting flowers like a fancy headpiece on everything I bake from now on (which will now have to increase, obvs.) That may be the best part. Too pretty.

Rain Date

Our housewarming party got rained out! Too bad. But it was a seriously good call on canceling it. We're not trying to get mud errywhere. And really, it's enough to ask car-less friends to come to San Leandro on a good day - who wants to do it in the rain? Who even wants to go outside? It worked out. Tocco and I had much to discuss and some great friends came over anyway, and it was perfect.

This dude came over and was like, I'm a party of one. I can do it allll myself. So much so she needed a bath before coming back in and passing out on the couch. Oh Dora! Who are you, even?
