I’ve been infected. No, not infected like some of those Losties over on The Island. I have spring fever — bad. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not one of those people who curses cold temps and gray skies. I relish them. The more snow the better. You don’t want to know how many knit hats with ear flaps I own.
There is just something about spring time in the city. After hibernating for months, Chicago comes alive. Free concerts at Pritzker Pavilion. Beer gardens and eating brunch outside. Visits to the dog beach. Did I mention flip flops? I wear a pair from May until September.
How was I able to diagnose my fever? My picks for this week’s “My Favorite Things” post clued me in. Just take a look!
I ❤ this band. One of my favorite parts about my previous career was working with developing labels and bands like these guys. There’s nothing flashy about this video but I think that’s the beauty of it. You really focus on the music and get drawn into the sound. I picture myself driving down Lake Shore Drive, windows down and listening to their self-titled debut (cranked up to 11, of course).
Yellow Branches Reuseable Lunch Bag
I pack my lunch every day. While my snacks are nicely organized (thanks Pyrex!), they get tossed into whatever plastic grocery bag I can find. Usually, it’s a nice white and red Target bag. I think it’s time I invest in something a bit more attractive. What do you think?
Dog Holder Hanger
Thanks to Google Buzz, my friend Michelle shared with me a new blog — Dog Milk. Dog culture PLUS modern design? She knows me too well. This pup can hold more than just a couple of tea bags. He was designed by Soon Mo Kang. My iDog does need a friend…
Rosedbud Belt In Marigold
Apparently I wasn’t the only one who fell in love with this belt. Mere hours after I added it to my list, it was sold out! Visit heartofight’s Etsy shop and browse around.
Spring Chick Necklace
This must be an off week for me. Another Etsy find sold out before I had a chance to purchase.
