Did you miss me? I promise I haven't run away, or given up the Internet for Lent (but more power to those people who have!). There is a lot of change going on over here: new job, new city, new (first) apartment and furniture shopping to fill said new apartment. Of course this all happens right after I finally settled back into my parent's house. But I will gladly repack all of my belongings into my car and move again. 

So while I might not be posting as often the next few weeks, just know that I will be putting my interior design Pinterest boards to good use and will come back with lots of ideas to make the most of a small space. 

1. Are you like me and get sucked into the other vortex known as Target only to emerge on the other side with items you never knew existed? Yes? Taylor perfectly describes what goes through a woman's mind every time she walks into Target.

2. I never tire of Chic Type's Typographic Friday posts. How precious is this infographic describing a baby's first year? 

3. Z let me take over her blog this week while she's on spring break. I shared my favorite recipes for those times when your pantry is a lot little bare or, if you are still in school, need to clean out your fridge at the end of the semester.

4. And on the note of home tours, I can't get enough of this garage apartment featured on The Everygirl.

5. It's best to travel Europe by rail: there is not limit on luggage, you get a scenic view of the countryside, plus you arrive closer to the city center. Here is a guide on how to make the most of rail travel.

6. Restaurant reviewers share their secrets to getting reservations, ordering the best dishes and more.

7. Portlandia might be one of my favorite comedies, behind Parks & Rec, The Mindy Project and Modern Family. So imagine the hilarity that ensued when Huffington Post shared "Portlandia in real life." The "put a bird on it" sketch might be my favorite...because I definitely went through a bird print phase.

Good luck on the new city, new job and new apartment! (I do it quite often in a year) Moving gives me a thrill, and meeting new friends, trying our new restaurants and living in new neighborhood!

Yay new apartment! Moving is a pain but decorating that first apartment? the BEST! I can't wait to see your style!

i know exactly what you mean. hopefully i will be in the area for a while. i don't know how much more packing/unpacking i can handle.

I love that you watch Portlandia! That show is amazing and as someone who is from the Pacific Northwest, I could totally relate to the Huffington post. I love your blog: you make me smile with every post :) Put a bird on it!
