I *need*

found via CSN|Wayfair & also Joss & Main (today)
OMG this chair. 

This also brings me to my second point.  This chair is available on one of those member's only sites- Joss and Main (non-returnable + $24 in shipping), but it's also available at CSN (returnable + FREE shipping) for $20 more.  I originally found the chair on Joss and Main, but further research led me to CSN's site.  I'm not saying one site is better than the other, but this isn't the first time I've found an item on a "member's only" site that I found for a much better price/return policy/shipping policy elsewhere.

I guess my only point is this: shop around peeps... after all, there is a rather large internet out there :)

Breaking Dawn I Alamo Drafthouse

November 21, 2011

Don't worry- no spoilers here!  Feel free to keep reading even if you haven't seen it :D

On Friday, I ventured over to Alamo Drafthouse with some of my besties to check out the new Twilight movie.  If you've never been to the Drafthouse, and you live near Austin, it should definitely be on your list of things you MUST do :)  It is seriously the best way to watch movies.  You may have heard about this quirky theater via this well known video that was recently released:

Anyways, before each film, instead of showing annoying commercials like most movie venues, they show videos pertaining to the feature presentation. Of course for Breaking Dawn, most of the videos were about vampires. Below are a few hilarious (parody) clips that were shown... enjoy!

Fabric off the Rack

Or in this case, wall.  Ever since seeing this wall paper in Stinkerpants' adorable house, I have had a huge crush on it.

Odds & Ends

1. I've been neglecting this blog because of the craziness that comes with the upcoming holidays. I can't believe it's already the end of November!!

2. Husband and I are hosting a smallish Thanksgiving dinner with our parents and siblings this year. It will be our first real dinner party and I am so excited!

3. To prepare for said dinner, decoration making has been in full force around these parts. Supplies include velvet, pumpkin stems, foam pumpkins, glitter, burlap, leaves, more glitter. I think I'm close to wrapping up the decor (with only a week before Turkey day, I hope so!)... so that means an upcoming blog post w/ tutorials should appear soon :)

4. Husband and I have been in disagreement about having the basset hound on the sofa. At first I was against it, but with the cooler weather I've changed my mind (I feel bad once he gets up there, he looks so warm and comfortable). Husband's argument is that it is a control issue. Not letting them on the sofa means that we are in control.  Thoughts?  Do you allow pets on your furniture?

5. Harry Potter Lego (years 5-7).  Enough said.
