The Weekender 09/17/2010

Happy Weekend. That’s my darling baby Watson. This is the first weekend in weeks that I’ve been at home. I believe the term is “staycation.” I’m excited for it.

Here are some fun things to look at while enjoying your weekend.

The Art of Doing Stuff has a very simple tutorial on making a personal fire pit. I think it’s very elegant looking. I’d love to have one in my house.

I must be in a warm, snuggly mood, because I was instantly attached to these candles. Fall is right around the corner and that’s the only time you can really get away with lighting candles in Florida.

Jen over at Indie Fixx has a great list of statement necklaces that she found on Etsy. She also shows you how to make your own.

Apparently the trend this fall is t-strap heels and ankle length socks. I’ve been seeing them everywhere. Tieka was sporting this look on one of her recent posts.

It’s a cute look. But I’m a little bummed about the visible sock thing. I mean, come on, who has the effort to find matching socks in the morning?

Also, my boyfriend was sad I didn’t feature any pictures of my new kitten. So here’s another one.

  1. just to be clear, i believe “staycation” refers to staying roughly in your same location, but doing something out of the ordinary. so my parents just went to stay in orlando for a night to get away (instead of forking over money to drive far/fly somewhere exotic). what you’re doing this weekend isn’t really a staycation. your camping was closer.
    also, i miss you.

  2. I think staycation just means staying at home (or close to home) and doing things you normally wouldn’t, so if you had a house with a guestroom then even sleeping in it instead of your bedroom would even count by my definition. That’s is what Robert & I did on our honeymoon and our week off this year (although we didn’t sleep in our guestroom).
