Saturday was great, went to the outlets got some super deals on cute chic new work clothes! Hung out shared ice cream and people watched, saw GI Joe. A great day to reconnect with my love!!! And oh how I love this man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sunday was our regular rare-weekends-together brunch, at the Bongo Room. Strolling Wicker Park....avoiding rain showers....hopping over puddles....and the Man got a new tattoo! So jealous...I can't wait for my next!
This song represents the spirit of his tattoo....it was great sitting by and watching, playing an active role in the process... being the 'artsy' voice on placement and design.
Baby, I love your new ink! And your sleeve is progressing nicely! (It will always serve as reminder of great times together!)

New matching Night stands with .......extra STORAGE!!!!!! Worst part of our loft = negative amounts of closet space, so any extra cavity is appreciated!!!
Another dresser, for the same reasons above! Folks it is bad, and my organizational self hates shoving stuff anywhere and everywhere. It will be awesome to have more space to put things away!!!
Fun new pillows! For the color scheme, I am thinking of cool muted tones (greys and whites) and a pop of red. I think these pillows would look great on top of a new duvet, which I have yet to find.....but know it does exist somewhere!
Some new fun art.....no explanation needed.
We already have a very large red rose painting in the hallway that I want to move in as well.....the Man wants a new bigger TV (Cuz a 47" in the living room isn't enough!), and possibly a nice big mirror - because every girl needs a full length mirror, and why not in the bedroom! Also need to find new modern lamp shades for the bases sitting in the hall closet.
Not sure when the bed change will happen, but we are saving up and I am super excited!!!!

I plan on hanging it above the desk (pictures forth coming), in the little nook of the living dining kitchen in the Man's and I loft. With our 20 foot loft ceilings, art needs to be impactful, bold and to scale with the expansive space. And what better art than something of your own?! Since the space I want to put it skinner than this, I was thinking of rotating the canvas so it is an up and down rectangle verses a longer flatter one.
I love the muted tones in the lettering....but thought maybe doing some thing bolder would help make it my own. Maybe certain words in a contrasting color to stand out, cause drama - impact. I am really hoping it turns out 1/5 as good and that I love it as much I do here.
Now to narrow down my list of possible 'words'.....
And PS - those wing back chairs are to die for!!! I would love to have a reading corner with one reupholstered in a graphic modern print....Christmas gift anyone?!
