sofa and plants / bev cooks

FRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrr. r r r r r r r r r aaa-hah. You know when you get an Amber Alert on your phone, and it’s that jarring alarm buzzing sound that rips you from whatever current reverie you were nesting in? And you attempt to grab your phone, knocking over 17 water glasses, 37 books, and […]

living room / bev cooks

Frrrrrrrrudeedooodedodetoo! We need new kid beds. Beds for the kids. Like, bad. Badly. Bad and badly. They’ve each slept in matchstick boxes (those cute little ikea beds) since they were around two years old (and they work!), and I’ve been avoiding the subject for about a year now, waiting until one of them starts complaining […]

kids and a horse / bev cooks

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFr eeeee delelelelele! It’s Will and Natalie’s birthday! NINE. NIIIIINE. How this happened is beyond me. Besides the whole time continuum thing. It’s so surreal. To see their faces and bodies start to change every so slightly. Taller. Lankier. The bigger teeth filling the awkward gaps in their mouths. Less cheek. More jaw definition. More […]

gifts / bev cooks

Fra la la la laaa la la la LA. The other day I was wrapping gifts and I needed something to watch while I wrapped. To have on, ya know. And truly, other than Christmas movies this time of year, I barely glance at a TV show. BUT! I’ve been reading and hearing and hearing […]

candles in windows / bev cooks

FRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAH. der. Okay PLEASE someone tell me that this Solawave thing is full of bull. It has to be. That honestly cannot be doing what it says it’s doing. Is it? Now, I’m a total believer in skin care. From minimal water splashing and moisturizing to lying on a bed with goggles and laser zapping, […]

tailleur / bev cooks

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFriday! (yes, I actually just typed the word. Don’t get used to it.) One of my favorite things in life is misunderstanding song lyrics. Oh no, not when *I* misread them, but when others do. It’s the very best. For instance, it might come as a surprise to you that we’ve been listening to a […]

mirrors and candle / bev cooks

Frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr r r r r r r rrrrrr. Last week I got to say the words out loud to an actual human being friend, “I dropped the Burberry off at the dry cleaner.” I said those words! And I totally felt like I was in a Seinfeld episode because who even goes to the dry […]

leaves and shoes / bev cooks

Frar. Dar. Flart. Sarm. Just how annoyed at me will you be if I tell you I’m 80% finished with Christmas shopping? Eighty percent! I knocked it HA-OUT yesterday, you guys. And by 80% I just mean with the kids. I haven’t touched family lists yet. That’s for post turkey. The kids’ goodies, though? Done. […]

fall pumpkins / bev cooks

Flotsam is baaaaaaaaaaaa! – oh, no one noticed? One person did? Well anyway, Flotsam is baaaaaaaaaack! Wide-legged denim. (some of you are like, peace out) I need some DES-PER-ATE help in this arena. I have a lot of wide legged pants, but no denim. And what I mean is, FULL LENGTH. Like, to-my-shoes jeans. I’m […]

fall trees / bev cooks

Friiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeedeeeeeeeeeeuuuuuuhhhhhhh. (<–just going for high-level annoyance right now) So this is the thing: I had a bunch of little ideas pop into my head this week of things to discuss today, but I wrote none of it down. Thinking, “Ohhhh I’ll remember that Friday morning at 5:25am. No problem.” Idiot. I have no idea what […]
