And we’re off to New Orleans!

// a thousand threads
We’re packing, prepping and praying the rain stays away for our trip to New Orleans on Sunday!

It’s been years (yikes!) since I’ve been down to visit my sister and even more years since I’ve been to visit during Mardi Gras, so excited is the big hulking understatement of the century… not to mention the fact that I can’t wait to escape this damn cold! (It’s supposed to snow again here Monday… 60 degrees here I come, rain or no). And the food? Oh, the food… Sunday can’t come soon enough.

I’m sure we’ll have plenty to share when we get back, and of course we’ll both be over-gramming while we’re away (Mark here, me here) so I hope you’ll stop by and say hello!

Tell me, what are you up to this weekend? Staying in to watch the Oscars and savor the last bits of winter warmth inside, starting to think about a little spring sprucing up? Any big plans?


Eye this gorgeous, gorgeous house.

Buy anything Lisa Hackwith touches — did you see her lovely profile on Emmadime this week?

Make lots and lots of paper flowers for spring — Design Sponge has a roundup.

Bake this nutella milk — duh. (Anything nutella, I don’t care… I’ll always be sold.)


Newer, better stock photos of ladies (and gents) that rock.

This insanely cute little lady.

Breakfast bread pudding? Yes, please.

Loving everything about this new conference and wishing I could go.

Kate Arends’ apartment is pretty much perfect in every way, and so is her advice.

    I’ll be at home watching this Oscars…and getting a little work done as well. Have a great weekend!

    I haven’t heard of that conference yet, but it looks amazing! I might just need to take the plunge and register. Hope you’re having a great weekend my dear! xoxo
