these are a few of my favorite things:

Dole frozen mango chunks + homemade vanilla maple yogurt (from my Waring Pro!)
+ Magic Bullet (must get one!) = delicious smoothies every day!

clean and simple in the city

The Selby featured a gorgeous house this week:

Artists and designers Lyndsay Caleo and Fitzhugh Karol's Brooklyn home is inspiration right up my alley - clean white with warm wood and antique found objects make a cozy but minimalistic interior that I am loving!

I'm even enthralled with their (what I think is IKEA) medicine cabinet and above-comode toilet paper array! Check out the post over at The Selby for many more pictures!

And if their stuffed-animal of a dog goes missing soon, don't look in my apartment because I definitely DID NOT steal him!

I just can't stop singing it! But since my last post about the ridiculousness of flight-prices and the difficulty of getting from st. thomas to jamaica (and it's still stupid) a lot has changed! In short, our entire move-home timetable has been pushed up by about a month! Now, instead of leaving stt in July and having to work out how to get to jamaica and back and eventually home, it's all happening right now and much more simply... sorta.

Jake is going to be leaving stt by boat. He's sailing two farr40s up to s. carolina two separate times beginning next weekend. Super exciting for him and I'm super jealous. But he's missing the wedding.

I'm leaving by aeroplane on the 17th. So soon! Sad to be leaving all our friends and work, but excited to fly to jamaica on the same (much cheaper) flights with two of my siblings! And then, I'll be home a month ahead of our previous schedule with much more time to look at apartments and jobs in:

my brother is getting married in jamaica at the end of the month and i have procrastinated booking our flights because it is SO FREAKIN RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE to fly there from STT that i just couldn't do it! i'm talking $700rt/person!! we are already IN the caribbean for pete's sake!

i can literally fly to DC, fly round trip from there to jamaica and back and then fly back to st. thomas and back home in july for the price of one round trip ticket STT-MBJ. that is 5 flights for the price of 2. SERIOUSLY?! seriously.

and that may be what i do.

we just wanna go here ;(
