Short of Tuck's injury, I had a really fantastic week. The Everygirl made it to DailyTekk's 100 Best, Most Interesting blogs of 2013, right alongside Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop and Zooey Deschanel's HelloGiggles. Awesome! We also secured a sponsor and location for our one year anniversary party. One month from today, The Everygirl will turn one! Alaina and I are taking our one year off and plan on celebrating together. Cannot wait! What a year it's been. And personally, things are going quite well. Like I said–I had a fantastic week.

And in pictures, clockwise from top left:
Movie night. Ordered dinner from Benchmark. Burger with no bun and a side of veggies. #paleo
Brunch at Tavern on Sunday. Wore my new Kate Spade cuff. That's an iced Americano in my hand. Yum.
Installed my new sconces from Euro Style Lighting. Love my Cocoa and Hearts painting!
Negative temps yesterday. It's freezing. And yes–Buddy is wearing a Jonathan Adler scarf.
Flowering branches are back!! And we're in that issue of Vanity Fair.
New rug arrived c/o West Elm. It is so soft and looks amazing.

A few other things:
One of my favorite features to date–How to Style a West Elm Parsons Desk
I just wrapped up what I think is a pretty awesome feature. It's going up Wednesday! Get excited, people.
One of my best friends is coming to Chicago this Thursday - Monday morning!

  4. I LOVE Cocoa and Hearts. I need to get my hands on one!

    Oh and loving the flower branches. May need to go get myself some!


  5. Still obsessed with your living room and so jealous you have a Cocoa & Hearts painting! You've definitely inspired me to convert my room to a neutral gray palette with pops of color!

  11. Love Jen's painting! i am really looking forward to ordering one for my bathroom. Have a great weekend!

  12. I love the shot of your couch. It looks completely "together" if that makes sense. With the pillows and lights and painting- just fabulous!

  13. Why haven't you been posting regularly? Your blog is one of my favorites!

  14. Wow, love the painting above your couch and the lamps on either side, looks like something out of a magazine! Great rug, I also have a West Elm rug and love it.
