Awkward and Awesome Thursday

As always, inspired by Sydney over at The Daybook

Awkward:
  • This article on vanity sizing.  Did you know you can be a size 8 at Banana Republic and simultaneously a size 2 at the Gap? 
  • The accompanying diagram

  • The very specific movie genres Netflix suggests from films you have already watched.  Case in point: Visually-striking Post-Apocalypse Movies and Quirky Romantic Crime Comedies. Somehow, I feel like it is judging me
  • Black widow season in my garden.  Creepy.
Awesome:
  • My new sugar bowl from Anthropologie.  I just love it (and it adds a nice pop of color to my kitchen).  I was going to keep it in a cabinet, but it looks so pretty on my counter that I just can't put it away.
  • This beautiful bird that comes to my bird feeder and brightens up my day.  The red is really red (but somehow loses its luster in this picture).  I think it is a house finch.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookbook, My Father's Daughter.  I admit that I already was a big fan (so maybe I am a little biased) but her recipes are really yummy too.  And, she uses a lot of anchovies (which is one of my favorite ingredients).  If you are not a fan of anchovies, don't let that scare you away.  She doesn't use them in a lot of recipes, too:)


  • Two family birthdays in April (for my two mother-in-laws) and beautiful birthday flowers to help celebrate the occasion (with Easter decorations included)

Love the Anthro sugar bowl. I wouldn't want to put it away either! So pretty.

The whole vanity sizing thing is getting out of control. It's making it harder to order things online.

Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
