happy friday

although today is friday (my favourite day of the week) for me it is like a Monday, as I am off to Vegas for the show I have been working on for the last few months. I am a bit of a nervous wreck wondering if I have forgotten something huge, but I guess there's only one way to find out...

I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend, and that you're doing something fun!

kisses Kate

gifts in the mail

look what Cooper and McKenzie got last night in the mailit's not hard to tell who's is who's here...of course they wanted to try them on that instant!Peace man...I think Coop should be a dog model - he wears it well!McKenzie was not so sure about the whole idea...look at that can a face like that be capable of bad things...?
we know you better than that McKenzie!

Thanks Barb

puppy kisses from Cooper and McKenzie

let's go window shopping

remember that voucher i got for my birthday? well, I have until the end of June to use it but I just haven't had a chance to get to anthropologie yet to see what I want... and since I can't go today, as I am still crazy working... I thought we could just do some online window shopping together instead...

here are some shots I took of the awesome displays last time I was at anthropologie to make you feel like you're there :)
so what's your favourite anthropologie piece right now?

my happy place

after spending the last 2 days in presentation training, and then going home and trying to catch up on all the work I missed, while preparing for the big event I have been working on (which starts on Sunday) I am feeling a little overwhelmed with everything, and have decided that I would like to be laying in a beautiful garden on a bed like this today with zero technology - maybe just a book and my two sungglebugs...

where would you rather be today?

happy first anniversary house!

saturday marked a year since we became home owners of this gorgeous little 3 bedroom 1951 ranch house in sunny california, and looking around not too much has changed as far as renovations but thank goodness for before and after photos we can be proud of the things we have done :)we started with replacing the old washer and dryer with these lovelies and in the process came across these
we tore out the aged and chunky carpets
to find these beautiful hardwood floors

we tidied up the yard a bit
we learned how to prune trees
and came up with a garden plan
we still haven't removed the wallpaperas it's kind of grown on us...
but we have done stuff on the garage. first to go was our rat infested dry rotted potting shedthen we organised the inside
and most recently we gave it a new door
we have picked out some paint colours but there is still lots to do before we paint
we have watched the seasons come and go
and are constantly surprised by little gifts in our gardenand from the housewe've welcomed a new family member herewe've celebrated here
bryce asked me to marry him here
and we're looking forward to what the next year here will bring as time rushes by...

feel the fear

today I am facing one of my worst fears - speaking in public. I am doing a 2 day course which is supposed to stop me melting into the floor any time I have to get up in front of people... wish me luck!

what's your biggest fear?

happy friday!

lots of rest and relaxation is called for this weekend in our house. bryce has strep throat and has spend the best part of this week in bed, the poor darling :( and I have spent the best part of this week working my butt off on this event I've been working on...

sleeping, watching movies, and generally lounging around sounds like the perfect weekend to me!

what are you getting up to?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend whatever it is you're up to.



and by popular demand...

ok, well it was just christina (my friend) so it probably doesn't count, but here is the summer scarf I made, directions here

ps - step 3 (pulling the pieces once you have cut them is very important - you'll see why after you do the first one...)
