ten years ago today i met a boy.



& i thought he was cute.
i liked him.
& he liked me.
& we went bowling.

then we dated some more.
& some more.
& some more.

& then we moved in together.
& then we got married.
& then we got G.

& now here we are.
married for nearly three years.

somewhere along the way we fell madly in love.
& i think it was on that very first date.
ten years ago.
when we went bowling.


i love you mr.

last night was amazing
& just what a needed after my crummy weekend.
do you know why??

one tree hill was back with a new episode
& rocking my socks off at that!

a lot is going on & we only have 3 episodes left
before season 7 comes to an end.
i am still praying & wishing that the CW
will grace us with a season 8.
but in the meantime i am enjoying the heck
out of the 3 new episodes coming my way in the next few weeks.
be sure to check them out!



and the icing on the cake
was last night's music video premiere
of wakey!wakey!'s "car crash".
{{starring the one & only james lafferty}}.
someone was definitely trying to make me happy last night.
check out the brilliant song from one of the best bands around
& of course my gorgeous boyfriend in the video too.






"You’re flat on your face in a field 50 feet from a burning Cadillac,
At least you were thrown clear, I’m still stuck in here…
Kick off my shoes I let the flames crawl up and burn right through me,
I'm silent as a movie, I always thought you knew me better…"



enjoy!

this weekend had its ups & downs.
& a lot of them.



ups: i got the kitchen painted; watched a ton of LOST with husband; saw my sister in her Beauty in the Beast play; chinese takeout; found an amazing piece of furniture at a consignment shop {possibly my favorite in my house}; lilacs have kindly taken over my backyard.

downs: my laptop hard drive crashed. i lost everything- all music, majority of my photos, all documents. {learn from my mistake & backup your drives. often!}; i broke one of my favorite frames; my back is killing me from painting said kitchen; had to play the strict mother rather than the cool sister a few too many times; & just about everything little imaginable thing went wrong.

But today is Monday and with it comes perspective. I am devastated to have lost my photos and my music, and everything just seemed to work against me the past few days... but I am letting go, and moving on. I will take new photos and I will find new music.

"Be kind, for everyone you meet
is fighting a hard battle."

this weekend i felt like a teenager again.
with no responsibilities... just fun things filling up my time.



mini road trips with the husband. 
shopping at trader joes. & h&m. new road mixes.
pf changs. seeing rogue wave in concert.
getting some new clothes. sleeping in. 
buying new records on national record store day.
getting our tickets to see everly in august!
grilling & eating outside with our friends.
lots of bean bag matches. & dominoes.
bonfires. beer drinking. & tequila shots.
LOST marathons. walks for frozen yogurt.
& salmon pinwheels for dinner.

it was pretty much perfection.
sometimes being a teenager is good.

today is a good day.
it's opening day!

::go cubbies::


i can't wait to get to a game this year.
wrigley field is one of my favorite places on earth.
but for now i'll be watching the action
from my living room with my boys
& reminiscing from my photos from last year.

go cubs go!

xo,
chelsea

{wrigley wrigley & at the old ball game polaroids in my shop!}

i have waited for what felt like
forever for a chance to see the movie:
.an education.


it was definitely worth the wait.
what an amazing little film.

if you have a couple hours to spare
i am telling you to spend it watching this.

it will whisk you off to paris
& remind you of being young & in love.
but it also gave me an education.
one that everyone should have.

 oh & it also makes me want to smoke colored cigarettes.


enjoy.

xx,
chelsea
