Warning: This post might be as self indulgent as they come. 
A few of you have left some nice messages about my new profile picture.  I’ve loved reading them and am so thankful to have such great readers.  I love ya’ll, I so so do.  Well the picture is from a little photoshoot that I did last Thursday with one of my best friends, Gray Benko, who just so happens to be a ridiculously talented children’s photographer.  Seriously, the bestest.  I’m so lucky to have her in my life.  I really wanted a more professional image on my blog, but you know I never would have hired a stranger to take pictures of me for my blogging hobby.  While Gray insisted to not expect much b/c she only works with children, I think she did an amazing job.  And best of all, posing by myself wasn’t so bad.  We had fun.  You’ll see…

We seriously took hundreds of images as we walked around downtown.  She just kept snapping while I laughed at the random people watching me (who must have thought I was crazy b/c some of these strangers took pictures of us- oy!).  But let’s be honest, I only need a couple of pictures, if not just one.  So these are the ones I’m keeping.  But I love ya’ll too much to not share some funny outtakes.  I mean, those are the ones you actually want to see, am I right?!  At the end of our “shoot” we came upon this scooter…

Couldn’t help myself.  The people inside the restaurant that it was parked in front of were egging me on, and we had a great time being goofy.
Aaaaand it gets better…

When my husband saw this last one he actually said, “Who do you think you are?!”!!  (In a nice way of course) Ha. 
Here’s to awesome girlfriends and just letting go and being girly.  I’m so happy that I’ll always have these pictures to look back on.
PS– Be sure to check out Gray’s awesome photography blog.

This weekend my search for new bedding continues.  You may remember that I posted about this a while ago, and yes I’m still looking.  I’ve seen plenty of things I like a lot, but so far nothing that is perfect. 
Like this…

Anyone know where I can find this look without spending an arm and a leg and not sacrificing quality?

Are amazeballs.  Like major amazeballs.  Here are some images from their Fall 2010 collection.  Remember to click the image to see it larger, if you must…

 Can you even believe the Daytime Escape earrings and necklace??
 And the Dinner At 6 necklace is my favorite.

And moving along to their Spring 2011 collection…  Yes, please!

Or maybe the High Times necklace is my favorite.
The Treasure Island earrings should to belong to me.
I feel like they’ve read my mind.  Go see more of the collection at Lizzie Fortunato Jewels.

Are the colors in this kitchen not exquisite?  The dishes, the lined up pears, the artwork…  And I don’t need new stools, per say, but I know these stools would be the icing to my kitchen.

I feel like maybe I should curse a little (a lot) and talk about bodily functions in my introduction of this next designer favorites feature.  Jenny of My Favorite and My Best is everyone’s favorite potty mouthed design blogger.  Maybe you’ve been reading her for while now, but I first found and fell hard for her when I read her post about design trends she hates and got swept away reading all of the subsequent comments.  Genious.  Anyway, Jenny’s here today sharing some of her favorite things in her home.  Enjoy.

{The lovely lady du jour.}

hey there lookers, lingerers and lovers!  i am jenny and i just rediscovered the bulk section at whole foods and am at present on a sugar high from an entire bag of chocolate covered pretzels.   
in truth my favorite things in my house are my toilet, my tv and my refrigerator but that wouldn’t make a very pretty post.  so i picked some other awesome places and things around my house..
 i am very big on my bar:

not only for the alcohol dreams it provides but bc i bought that piece for a song on craigslist and transformed it into mid century magic… 

it’s on great big wheels for travel drinking. 

next on the list of favorites is my oly bench that i ALSO got on craigslist for what is known in the design blogging circle as the greatest craigslist deal ever in the history of EVER…
an oly bench is right around 2,000 dollars.  i got mine for 150 dollars…

i am the craigslist whisperer.

and here is where i became semi famous…
this is my desk in my bedroom. (also a painted redo) it is my favorite place at about 7:30 AM when i am half way through my cup of organic french roast and ezekial brand sprouted english muffin with strawberry jelly and 8 pounds of butter.  it’s all about balance. 
i hope you enjoyed yourselves.  i aim to please.  
thank you chassity!  you rock, your blog rocks and i thank you for inviting me to talk about myself on your blog. 
love forever,
jenny aka mfamb aka your mom
Big thanks to Jenny for stopping by.  I hope you all enjoyed and head over to MFAMB to read more from her.  And if you don’t love the bar cart on wheels, you’re crazy.  Isn’t there a need for travel drinking in the home? 
And that’s all folks.
