from the weekend: California vs. Michigan

10.04-weekendI had a pretty tame weekend in LA… we went to see Argo (sooo good) and had a few great meals at some of my favorite spots. Thanks Gjelina, Baco Mercat, & Umami Burger :).

MEANWHILE… in michigan it got a little wild! My parents were staying at my cabin for a few days and got a good look at this big ole coyote feeding on a deer RIGHT in front of the cabin. My mom took this photo from our deck while hiding behind a tree… kind of amazing.

cabin progress: bedroom wallpaper

wallpaper-bedroom-cole-and-sonsWe tackled a little DIY wallpaper project last trip so things are actually starting to look a little something like my bedroom plan here.

installing-wallpaperI have been holding on to this Cole & Sons wallpaper for almost 5 years now so it is nice to finally have the perfect place to put it up! I know it has been seen and done many times before but it really is just soo good that I don’t mind. :)

The process of putting up the wallpaper was easier then you might think. My mom assisted me, and we had it up in no time (well, almost… it took us a couple hours), and it turned out great. It is amazing to me how big of a difference it makes in the room. If you ever feel like taking this on yourself there are some great detailed instructions here. Or, if you are like me… I like to hear the steps boiled down to the very basic before jumping into a project.

So, see how I did it after the jump:

October in review

october in reviewHere’s a peek at my October… I finally got the taste of fall that I was craving with our trip back to Michigan. We took A LOT of walks through the falling leaves and rain and got some more things done at the cabin (update coming soon). Then was our trip up the coast to Big Sur, which you can read all about here. While home in LA we ate and drank at a few of our favorite spots, I had a little fender bender which prompted me to get my neck x-rayed, and lastly we celebrated Halloween in true “pull your costume together at the last minute” style. :)

How was your October?
