* That Urban Outfitters sells rugs, and that they are seriously cute, and reasonably priced? Why are rugs so expensive? It’s hard for me to justify spending a fortune on something that will be stepped on all day. I bought the giant rug in our family room from Home Goods for what seemed like a steal at the time, but I really need something for the playroom. I’m coveting the Scalloped,
and Herringbone styles.
*That you can watch Downton Abbey RIGHT NOW in the United States? For pennies? Legally? Check out Kristen’s post on how to do this. There are some great comments on other work-arounds, too. (Edited: Now that I’m reading the comments it appears that it might, possibly, violate the iTV terms of service. So, this might require a little looking in to.) Tell me though, would you do this? Or would you rather let the anticipation build so you can watch with the rest of Twitter when DA is available in the states? Last year I was able to get a copy of the British DVDs right around the time the show started airing in the US, so let’s hope that happens again. It was nice to watch it in one fell swoop of Mary and Matthew obsession.
*That Gap jeans sizing is seriously crazy? I know we’re supposed to avoid Gap jeans due to their Mom-buttedness, but I can’t quit them. Yesterday I bought three pairs of jeans in THREE different sizes. I really want these pants in orange because look how amazing they look on Elizabeth! But I’m afraid to order them online and have them not fit.
*That you can take add a few extra ingredients to Bisquick pancake mix to take them from blah, to pretty damn good?
*That losing an earring in the mall is a really unfortunate thing? I now have one white Kendra Scott Elle. To the credit of mall security, they didn’t laugh when I called to ask if one had been turned in. In the spirit of making lemons out of lemonade, or usable jewelry out of just one earring as the case may be, I’m thinking making my remaining Elle into a necklace. Any thoughts on execution?
Happy Friday everyone! What’s on your agenda for the weekend? I’m a soccer mom now (full suburban housewife assimilation COMPLETE) so our weekend is spoken for, along with a side of mattress shopping. Try to contain your jealousy, please.
