best friday night, ever

madewell shoes via country living's april 2010 issue

girly post ahead! don't say i didn't warn you.

last night, i got a real good chance to get my relaxation on, and i enjoyed every minute of it. doug cleaned the bathroom, drew me a bath, and set out the discarded free magazines we had just picked up from the library. so gentlemen, i really hope you're not reading this, but if you are, you want to know the way to a woman's heart? a scrubbed, spotless bathtub. i'm completely serious, be still my heart! anyway, so i was enjoying the quiet chance to flip through april's issue of "country living" (i know, getting more and more girly as i go) and it brought back so many good memories of going through stacks of my mom's subscription as a kid, sitting next to the lake on our summer vacation. in this issue, there was a really beautiful article about decorating with florals, that included all the good liberty of london for target items (previous post), most of which i missed or had sold out in my store.


i also read a little thing on longaberger baskets (who's home office in ohio is actually a gigantic basket - awesome!). after searching around a little online, i found this article on organizing with baskets from real simple. you know, it's wonderful that everything's at our fingertips online, but it does kind of make me sad that there's almost no need for printed anything anymore. i mean, don't get me wrong, save those trees, but how are soul mates supposed to meet when there's no j. crew reading to bring them together?

"We were so lucky to grow up among catalogs". Classic. Love that movie... and love perusing my "Country Living" each month... A Christmas gift from my Mother-in-law. I knew I married into the right family!

Oh yeah, paper catalogues. I would browse them on and on. Now everything is just a click away, but sometimes it's less fun.
