COMPLETE PARALYSIS OF DECISION MAKING, OR: HOW TO UNRAVEL YOUR SENSE OF SELF COMPLETELY AND WONDER WHY YOU HAVE MONEY AT ALL, LIKE WHY ARE YOU EVEN SO LUCKY TO HAVE IT, AND HOW AND WHEN DID YOU BECOME A PERSON WHO KNOWS WHAT A CHAISE IS / ORDERS A CUSTOM CHAISE

THINGS (SHOES) = PEACE AND HAPPINESS

January 7th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m still not quite sure what the question is, but THESE GREEN VELVET SLIPPER HEELS THAT FOLD AROUND MY FEET LIKE ANGEL EARS ARE 100% THE ANSWER.

to be known

December 29th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Really actually the best part of Christmas, or really any gift-giving holiday, is discovering how Known you are by those around you, perhaps even more than you know yourself. Take this stamp set that Morrison put in my stocking:

I never would have thought to get it myself, but turns out, I actually need it desperately. COMING SOON FROM MY KITCHEN, THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU NEED!

(BUT MAYBE YOU DO KNOW)

(BECAUSE IT’LL BE FOOD)

(HOPEFULLY AT THIS POINT IN LIFE YOU KNOW YOU NEED FOOD)

December 25th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

OH HI, are you taking a moment away from your family, be they great, to retreat into the calm of internet, which is to say, take a contemporary deep breath? WELCOME! Don’t forget to also breathe actual breaths. I just wanted to share that All I Wanted for Christmas is a Mother-In-Law who respects and appreciates Christmas ornaments as much as myself and my own mother:

and also  Snow in my Gob.

I AM LEGIT SATIATED FOR LIKE 3-4 MORE CHRISTMASES. Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope you got not just Christmas List Things, but Things that surprised you, that made you feel known and loved. OKAY, BACK TO CARBS.

midcentury modern baby gate

Can also double as an overpriced bench that you got from a tiny vintage furniture store back when you never thought about things like VISITING BABY NEPHEWS ACCIDENTALLY HURDLING THEMSELVES DOWN YOUR STAIRS.

WHO EVEN ARE WE

November 30th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

A myriad of thank you’s to Morrison’s parents for sending us this epic and beautiful floral and succulent display that makes me feel like I’m royalty and I live in a Spa in a Castle on a Mountain and that I never buy my household items from Target (EXCEPT FOR YESTERDAY, AND EVERY OTHER TIME I’VE BOUGHT HOUSEHOLD ITEMS)

furniture shopping for drunks

November 4th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Furniture salesperson: This couch features crypton fabric. You can spill anything on it, and it just beads up, then you wipe it off with a rag! It’s resistant to everything!

Me:….even wine?

Furniture salesperson:Yep! Even wine.

Me: So….I can accidentally spill an entire glass of red wine all over it and it will be totally fine?

Furniture salesperson: Yep!

Me: I’LL TAKE IT! / CALLS APPLE STORE, ASKS IF COMPUTERS AND ALSO PHONES COME IN CRYPTON

how to move

October 28th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

- Procure boxes

- Look at all of your worldly items, take them all in, ask yourself why you’ve kept them, now they’re dirty, falling apart, or remind you of bad times, or of being a kid in a bad way, but maybe the weight of the pages is supposed to make you feel some sort of success, an accumulation of something, maybe just Years?  but look!  you appear to have spilled mustard there, and there’s a crease on that, and that one has bugs inside of it, and this one you could never really get clean, and that one is just broken, so why keep it at all, except for a few of the books, and a shoe?

- Leave it all there except for a few of the books

- Go to your new house

- Congrats! You moved

how to remember things

October 20th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Remember that one time this Summer when both the LA times and the NY times ran articles about The Cake within the span of a week, and it was completely insane and perhaps everything I’ve dreamt of / worked for, but I was  so engaged in the work and in life that I barely had time to appreciate it? NO? ME NEITHER.  IF ONLY I HAD SAVED THE ARTICLES AND THEN SPENT WAY TOO MUCH MONEY TO GET THEM FRAMED, ONLY AFTER QUESTIONING IF IT WAS NARCISSISTIC, BUT THEN DECIDING THAT IT WAS DEFINITELY WORTH COMMEMORATING.

OH WAIT NEVERMIND, I FORGOT, I DEFINITELY DID THAT
