Friday Bits

Three happy-making things this Friday:

storage bowls

Vintage-style storage bowls from Fishs Eddy. I’ve had my eye on them for a while, and when I needed some bowls for something I’m doing Sunday (more on that Monday!) I justified the need for them, and I can use them for storage later. Pretty storage, that is. (They come with lids that aren’t in this photo.)

Mr. Arnold Palmer

Homemade Arnold Palmers (half lemonade, half iced tea) made with agave nectar. I would live off of these, I swear. The agave instead of sugar is surprisingly amazing.

glambert

My very talented cousin Taylor, who recently became a back-up dancer for Adam Lambert. They’re touring the country (and soon the world) and I got to see him Tuesday night in NYC. It was definitely not my normal scene and music, but I was so entertained and impressed. That guy can SING! And I can totally appreciate a musician who can sing well, despite their genre not being my thing. He did a cover of Led Zeppelins “Whole Lotta Love” at the end (which was apparently a song he did on Idol) that was pretty amazing. Taylor brought me backstage afterward, and it felt very awesome to have someone pick me out of a crowd of eager fans to get past a bouncer. Taylor, I’m so proud of you.

Have a great weekend, guys! I have a very exciting announcement on Monday – I’m finally going to reveal that big necklace project I worked on for months!
