Hello lovelies! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend ahead of you! I will be… going to a wedding, hanging out with my little brother and my parents exchange student, playing in Nashville and a little bit of working tomorrow. I just wish I could also be playing in the snow somewhere, like last year in Chicago!!! What are your fun plans?

xoxo,
Rachel

the civil wars.

Music has always played a huge part in my life. In middle school, when I got in trouble, my parents would ground my from anything related to The Beatles, because they knew that would teach me a bigger lesson than taking away television. In college, I chose to major in the Recording Industry program at MTSU, where I met my husband in one of our mutual classes. I then proceeded to work in the music industry for 5 years, up until just recently. All major moments of my life I can attribute certain songs, or genres of music to. I love it. I live it, I breathe it, I couldn’t live without it.

This band is one of those bands I know I will remember this part of my life by. I have listened to their live album more times than I can remember, and they have touched me in ways I can’t explain. I know I will be listening to them for a very long time. The song below, “Poison & Wine,” I first heard when I was having doubts about marriage, and what being married and loving someone unconditionally actually meant. And I think I probably cried uncontrollably in my car listening to it. The words are haunting, but sum up, to me, what love is all about.

Check out the official music video to “Poison & Wine,” and while you’re at it, go download their free live album (I mean, its free!!) Do it. You will not regret it.

LOST.

Anyone who knows me knows of my complete and neverending obsession for the show Lost. I research it. I play the ARG’s. I get on message boards. I’m even enrolled in Lost University. I am a nerd, and I don’t care.

Lost is, in my opinion, the best show that has ever been on television because of how well they tie everything together. Rarely ever does something happen on the show that doesn’t have something to do with something that happened 3 seasons ago – i’ll stop here. But if you’ve never watched it, you need to stop what you are doing and go watch now. The first 4 seasons and the first 9 episodes of season 5 are on Hulu. Yep. I’m obsessed.

So how did I completely forget about these awesome posters and the game that goes along with them?? These are all sold out, but there are going to be a few more – different artists are contributing for these special commemorative prints, and there are only a limited number available for each one. My favorites below:

Jon sent me these amazing handmade clutch bags made to look like first edition books – I am IN LOVE. If only I were this creative….

Tonight… just hanging out at home, cuddling on the couch with my puppy, watching guilty pleasure TV {think 90210, Melrose Place} and eating queso. I needed a night like tonight.

i’m dreaming of a white christmas…

rachel and tree

Soo, I convinced Jon that we needed to go with a white tree this year (which i’ve been dreaming about since seeing this Rachel’s white tree and adorable handmade Chrismas decor). I mentioned it on Twitter, because I am on a strict budget this year, and Annie came through!!! She found one for me at Wal-mart for only $35!! Say what you want, that was MUCH better than Target’s $199 white tree. I immediately ran out and bought it!!! And… its already up, as shown in the picture above:) I also picked up some Santa straws – because drinking out of a Santa straw makes everything taste better!

This week I’m super excited – doing some more training at Anthro, which I am pumped about, and also, getting together with Kristin to start planning out some fun Christmas crafting!! I’m thinking about some of the things below… any other ideas for things I can make??
