It's our family's first weekend post Christmas break and I can't wait to have my little trio back together. While I appreciated falling back in to our regular routine this week, I desperately missed our lazy days spent together over the holiday. In our household, we've coined a term called "The Sunday Sads." It's that feeling you get that usually rolls around on a Sunday afternoon where you still have enough of the day ahead to appreciate what's left of the weekend, but are becoming increasingly aware that it's back to the grind tomorrow. I feel like I've had a touch of the Sunday Sads all week long so I've devised a cure: plan a warm, beach-y getaway. This is exactly what I intend to do! But for now, here are some little gems from around the inter-web.
Un Deux Trois is on Instagram!
A DIY glow-in-the-dark-table. I fully intend on tackling this project come spring. Who knows where I can find some photoluminescent powder?
My Mom gave Joel this set of dominoes for Christmas and it is absolutely our new favourite way to spend time after Xavier goes to sleep at night. Fireplace lit, a brown liquor on ice, me counting on my fingers and toes to multiples of 5..... Ro'manic.
Beautiful homes set against a familiar white backdrop.
I've totally abused the part of my brain that's responsible for food cravings by watching back-to-back-to-back episodes of Mind of a Chef on Netflix. I'm now completely obsessed with ramen.
I'm so excited to complete another Wool and the Gang knitting project!
I have a confession to make: I never wash my face before bed. This heavenly scented face polish is how I plan to incent a change in this dirty little habit of mine.
One artist's interpretation of historical world leaders as hipsters. I swear I have the hat Mao Zedong is wearing and the bralet that Margaret Thatcher has on. How often do you get to say that in a sentence?
I love a "just because" cake and here's the one I plan to bake this weekend. This cake has been made twice before with varied success but I think it's a recipe that absolutely belongs in the repetoire.
One of the many skills I have yet to master in the kitchen is how to perfectly poach an egg. This little life hack tutorial has brought me closer than ever before. Tested. Approved. Re-tested. Approved.
I remember being taught to use the Oxford comma but I've let it slip. I'm bringing it back. #SavetheOxfordcomma
"Mother Nature is Trying to Kill You: A Lively Tour Through the Dark Side of the Natural World" by Dan Riskin is next on my reading list.
The only reason I will be watching the Golden Globe Awards this Sunday is because of Amy and Tina. My dying wish would be to have a slumber party with these two..... Amy braiding my hair, me painting Tina's toenails... Check out some of last year's Golden Globes highlights.
