Monday Morning

11/14/2011

{ Champagne and burgers, my kind of meal}
{R.I.P. Steve Jobs. Yes, it's been posted to death, but sometimes there's a reason for that}
{As much as I love my little desk, this one has mine beat. I mean, that view of the Eiffel Tower? Seriously?}
{Isn't this hilarious? I'm not big on Facebooking but I definitely make mental notes of things to blog about}
{Lately I have been favoring my skinnies, but this photo is making me want to pull out my high-waisted, wide-legged jeans}
I've decided to switch things up so instead of Friday Five posts, I'll be doing Monday Morning posts ... because when else do you need a few things to make you happy than on a Monday morning when the whole work week looms ahead?


How was your weekend? Ian and I tried a new bar on Friday; I caught up with these girls and did some shopping here on Saturday before settling in for a night of wine, Scrabble and a movie with Ian; then on Sunday, Alexa and I went brunching and my former roomies (minus Savannah, plus Amber) stopped by for a visit. 


P.S. Like clutches? We do too.

The no doubt bag really made me smile. I have a beautiful view of a mountain from my desk window but the E.Tower might just beat it :)

That desk overlooking the Eiffel Tower is unreal...I always fall hard for gorgeous views! I like the idea of Monday five posts-one can always use a pick me up at the beginning of the week!

Your weekend sounds lovely Alexa!
Mine was just the time I needed to rest my weary eyes and mind! :)
That last photo is probably what inspired my lookbook post today. Love everything about it.

Sounds like a great weekend and a great round up of goodness for Monday morning. That view would be so, so distracting. I'd spend all of my time writing about it.

Love that little desk. How fitting it would have been for Carrie of Sex and the City when she was in Paris?!

I love the idea of doing a Monday morning 5 Things post - like you said, who doesn't want a little pick me up as they head off for work :)
And champagne & burgers?! That's basically my dream dinner.
