You Can Stand Under My Umbrella

Yesterday's rainy weather here in L.A brought puddles, chilly weather, and a smile to my face. Oh, and a free, much needed car wash. Thanks Mother Nature! There's something so comforting about waking up to the sound of rain when all you want to do is stay in and watch movies under your fluffy down comforter.

For those of us who didn't have the pleasure of staying in, these umbrellas would have been the perfect accessory to fight against the unpredictable rain.

Absence Averted

It's been quite a while since my last post, and for anyone that follows/enjoys my blog I give you the most sincere apology. But c'mon, life went on just fine without me and there's plenty of other bloggers that entertained you while I was gone...But seriously, I know you missed me...terribly...borderline separation anxiety. Well I'm back, so disaster averted.

Not sure if I mentioned this prior to my little departure, but the boyfriend and I are moving. We've spent the past couple weeks trying to find a place in our price range (not easy in this town) and pleasing to the eye (you won't believe the shi-- cruddy places out there). When we came upon our new apartment I think I heard angels singing. I kid I kid, but we did get butterflies when we were deciding to fill out the application, right after the pros/cons list determined the cons were few and far between. We are ecstatic about it, and can't wait to make it official tomorrow when we sign the lease. :)

Perhaps we got a little ahead of ourselves, but we've picked out a couch and paint colors. Most of our excitement revolves around decorating and making this place feel like a true home, unlike the current roommate infested living quarters we currently find ourselves in. Too bad money doesn't grow on trees, because my list of needs versus wants is starting to blur.

Apartment Therapy and Discover: Interior Design have become my new best friends, as much as a blog can be a buddy.

I've always wanted a gray-blue room, and images like these inspire me to follow through. Still undecided whether its going to be the living room or bedroom, but I'll keep you up to date once final decisions are made. Who knew there were so many grays to choose from, and so many paint chips to sort through? I'm drowning in paint chipppppssssssssss.
