The View Through My Lens: 16

This past month has been a whirlwind with school starting back up, taking on a few more freelance design projects, and just managing the craziness of everyday life!  I think recapping some of the highlights of the past month are best done through pictures...

Sam and I enjoyed Valentine's Day dinner out at one of our favorite Houston restaurants- Ouisie's Table.  He tried chicken fried steak for the first time and loved it, although he was confused why there wasn't any chicken in it. Guess that isn't a big thing in Australia?


I spruced up my bedroom chairs with my favorite velvet leopard print pillow covers from Arianna Belle's shop:


I'm head over heels in love with these gorgeous 20th century French sconces I recently found for a client at one of my favorite antique stores, Watkins Culver:  


Finally won a blog giveaway (my 1st ever!) from Sacramento Street and scored a free pair of shoes from Shoemint.  Of course I chose a leopard heel!


Spent a pretty Saturday sitting on the Starbucks patio with this cutie:



I've been trying to savor those sweet moments in the midst of the craziness.
What have you been up to lately?

  1. He's not the only one confused about the chicken fried steak. I have had a few friends or students from foreign countries that find it weird...but weirdly good. Also keep getting asked about steak fried chicken, to which I always have to disappoint and say that's not a thing.

    As for what I've been up to lately...grading papers. We're at midterm week here already, and I can't wait for spring break to arrive!

    1. It must be an American thing- we are so glutinous! It's just steak fried in a chicken-like batter. Yikes! ;)
