She had such a response that I feel you all deserve to hear the latest (y’all were out clicking to read the comments like mad). I’m writing this update despite my anxiety that one local reader will discover who inspired this conversation in the first place. Ooooooo danger.

Okay so you remember this girl that you didn’t want to hire? Well, most of you said you wouldn’t hire… Because she’s a fucking bombshell living in your home as a nanny and your husband isn’t blind. Yeah her. I wouldn’t have hired her either even though I’m certain that my loving, devoted husband would never have ever even glanced at her ;) Sorry Toots, I guess sometimes the world just isn’t always fair to the beautiful. Huh.

Anyway, she (the gorgeous and very real Swedish au pair that sparked this conversation in the first place) went back to Sweden for school and the family has already hired a new woman. This time, drum roll please, she’s a woman in her 60’s. Just saying. I don’t know if this one lives with the family. Just found it interesting.

Good move on the wife’s part. Please keep your insults on my insecurities to yourselves :)

I’m not saying that I’m against a bouquet of flowers – I think any bloom is wonderful (alright, I’m not so much a fan of sunflowers). But I do think it’s refreshing to consider something more… lasting.

A Lulie Wallace painting. Number one floral on my list for real.

Or how ’bout a floral tank. It just makes sense. To me, at least.
Maybe some flowery earrings? No time like the present to hop on the iridescent trend.
Orrrr maybe some sweet mugs.
Perhaps going bigger and getting some pink and red for your home… Love this rug (or wallhanging) oh so much.
Regardless, this card should most definitely be considered.

It took me a million or so hours to finally find the table for our banquette in the kitchen. We have a large island we’ve been using in the meantime, so we weren’t totally put out during my search. Turns out it’s kinda hard to find a table you love that’s the right look, size, and price.

It’s not exactly what I had in mind, but frankly I was just tired of looking and wanted to be done with it. And I like it. We ordered it from Restoration Hardware during a sale.

I found the Cobble Chairs (and also the napkins that I’ve had for awhile) at one of my favorite local furniture stores, Celadon. But you can find the chairs online here since I was all selfish and bought the last two at Celadon a few months back. The art is from Black Crow Studios. And the stripy throw can be found in my girl Amber’s Shoppe.

I had originally planned to get cushions for the bench but am going to wait until my kids are older and not all “i’m gonna just wipe my hands anywhere” even if it is an accident.

Anyway, I’m happy. It’s a nice spot for my family to eat, for kids to color, and for me to sit with my computer, coffee, and read blogs.
