Lazy Saturdays

I'm not usually one to toot my own horn, but I won an academic award this week :)
Turns out while I was searching for a frame for said award, I came across a box full of goodies hidden away in my parents' basement.

I pulled out a couple old books and magazines.
The first was a really, really in depth interior design book.
Austin browsed through it and said something along the lines of,
 "I never knew there was so much to interior design..."
It's a pretty intense book and should be a fun read.

The rest were full of cool furniture projects - perfect for a crafty couple like Austin and I :)

These two magazines were really quite old and full of funny retro projects. 
We probably won't use them, but they were fun to look through.

In Handmade Modern we found several sweet projects.
I'm going to attempt to make some paper lanterns for the living room 
and Austin found some inspiration to redo the floors in his studio. 
Pretty awesome find. Who knew my parents/mom were into that stuff back in the day?

Aaaand I finally found some wedding shoes!!
So excited! I've been looking for some non-traditional flats, but I had such a hard time trying to find ivory ones.
So, I gave up - and just in time to find these!
 I fell in love at first sight :)

Also, my parents' 25th anniversary in on May 10th!
They took a trip to Sedona, AZ this weekend to celebrate and left me with the kids.
My sisters and I are having a lazy weekend - partying it up without the rents ;)
While my parents are enjoying this:

Devil's Bridge

Cute cactus :)

And they took a private helicopter ride. So jealous.

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

turn that frown upside down,
