Obsessions + Observations



+ I am seriously obsessed with this Ikea rug...I want it, but have no place for it.  #sigh

+ I'm pretty sure the search function no longer works on my blog.  Or anyone else's blog for that matter.

+ Did you watch the Bachelor last night?  Read this for a good laugh.

+ Are you searching for the coveted plaid blanket from Zara scarf?  Keep checking the site!  New scarves are added randomly throughout the day and night...it's like magic!

+ I need a new iPhone case...any suggestions?

+ Postpartum.  I could never put how I felt into words.  But she did.  And I agree with every bit of it.

+ Just bought this coat {thanks to this photo} and I am in love!

+ We're going on vacation to Maui in less than a month!  I cannot wait to see the humpbacks and hopefully relax while Ryan and Ethan play in the pools.  ;)  Any restaurant and book recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

+ See last bullet and realize why I am starting to panic post-holiday and birthday.  This paleo plan is pretty awesome!

+ But with that, I'm pretty excited about snagging a new suit.  This, this and this are all in my cart!

  10. Lucky you and your Hawaiian vacation! My family has been talking about a Hawaii trip this Spring, we'll see. I am a huge reader, so here's my recommendations: And the Mountains Echoed, Wild, The Night Circus, and The Kitchen House.

  12. So I feel the same way about that Ikea rug and really wanted it for our apt, but unfortunately it the size didn't fit our space...so I had to settle for the pillow instead :) So fun that you guys are going to Maui, I am still dying to get to Hawaii sometime soon! Maybe for a babymoon...aka sometime down the road haha :) Also, that Paleo plan you posted is awesome! We were much better about sticking to that in Tahoe, but have majorly fallen off the wagon in Portland...I'm slowly but surely trying to get back on track in 2014! Miss you friend! xoxo

  19. So jealous about Maui! My husband and I loved Mama's Fish House and Lahaina Grill, both need reservations. We also stumbled upon Kihei Caffe, which has great breakfast. If you want to go shopping for local artisan pieces (instead of tchotchke type souvenirs) check out Paia. Have so much fun!

  20. We went to Maui for our honeymoon and by the recommendation of a friend we went to Mama's Fish House and it was AMAZING. I would highly recommend it!
