my week in objects (mostly).

June 22, 2012

five little things that made my week.

1. ice.
ice {because without it, i would have been the one to melt}.

2. these new flips.
flips {because they were on sale. walking three miles in them  on day 2, ill-advised. i never learn}.

3. this parking spot.
parking {because it was so close to home and required no waiting around. new concrete sidewalk residue all over street and tire, somewhat more concerning}.

4. this tile.
tile {because it keeps the entrance to our building so cool. wanted to plop myself down on it all week long. yes, just like your family dog}.

5. frozen mango.
mango {because it’s slightly tastier than #1 and was the perfect thing to snack on while i wrote}.

what little something made your week?

other things:
going to the premiere of this incredible film tonight. you should, too.
really good scarves.
this is thought provoking. especially during a very hot week.
my words on riding the subway.

    hate the fact that it's so warm for you guys. wales has just completely forgotten that it's summer. i want to be eating ice, frozen mango and plopping myself down on that tiled floor. but instead i am eating soup, drinking tea and wearing like 3 jumpers.
    so jealous!

    i am a sucker for flip flops, as well.
    usually keeping a pair far too long, just to avoid the breaking in of something new.

    enjoyed your post about the subway and folks don't know what getting an easy parking spot can mean to people who live in the city :). enjoy your weekend!

    i just found your blog and am so impressed! i look forward to reading more… i love that your first pick on this post was ice, we have ice for the first time today in a year. and we are in heaven. last year we traveled in a vintage airstream all year so not much of anything, much less ice, and now we're renovating a 113 year old bungalow and tried going vintage fridge, no luck, and finally a new fridge with an ice maker… amazing how you miss the little things!! anyhoo, love what i've seen so far and wanted to say hello!
    xo, tiffany
