30 for 30 | January 2013 Link Up #2


I feel like I should explain to you guys where I've "been" lately.
"Been" is in air quotes because I suppose one can't actually "be" on a blog. But you get it.
And by this point you may be wondering wtf a giant elephant has to do with any of this, and it occurs to me that I may not have introduced you all to Teddy the Frivolous Elephant painting.

Sometimes a random thing makes you happy and you can't put your finger on why.
Could be sequin pants. Could be high top wedge sneakers. Could be a giant painting of a bull elephant.

This week, rearranging and redecorating my apartment has made me happier than getting dressed. Can't quite put my finger on why, but I went with it. And I'm reeeeaaaalllllllyyyy excited to show you guys when it's done, though I realize that having absolutely nothing to compare it to you probably won't notice much of a difference.

I may or may not have shoe displays. May or may not.

And now, let's see what's been making you guys happy this week. 30 for 30-wise.

    1. It's extra epic when you stand beside it and realize it's literally the size of a baby elephant. You wake up and BAM!!! Tusks.

  8. Our home is considered "elephant required". Also "all the white ceramic animals required". Thanks for sharing a peek into your home! Can't wait to see more.

    1. I like your home already. Our houses could be twins! Only mine is "all the gold spray painted animals required" because I love Pinterest and weird things.

    1. You, my darling, are as usual too sweet to me - never in history has letting a shiny pillow and a giant elephant do all the work qualify as a talent ;)

    1. One of my very best friends LOVES dolphins. She has dolphin everythings. You guys would get along ;) or you know, fight over who gets to keep all the dolphin stuff. One of the two. And yeah, add a giant painting and the apartment goes from "oh, nice paint" to "HOLY CRAP THAT'S A GIANT ELEPHANT"
