|Let's play the "How Many Pairs of Shoes Can You Spot?" game|
My sister grew up in the same house as me (obviously?), so she is completely aware of my natural inclination towards messiness (and I would like to clarify here that messy and dirty are distinctly different. In my mind.) I like to think it is a charming manifestation of my artistic temperament- my housemates (past and present) may disagree on the "charming" part.
However, the first time somebody comes over to visit me in a new place I'm living, I like to pretend that I have matured, seen the light, and keep on top of chores like recycling old magazines and putting the shoes away instead of letting a million pairs accumulate by the front door.
As my sister arrives for a visit tomorrow morning at a time of day that I am usually still in bed if I can help it, that means I'll be spending all day today like Cinderella before the ball... but I don't even have a wicked step-mother making me clean, just a voice in the back of my head that sounds suspiciously like my own (non-wicked) mother dictating what a house being "company ready" entails.
So, please think of poor pitiful me scrubbing and laundering and dusting and organizing while you are enjoying these fun links for the weekend. XO!
I love this idea- has anyone done it? Did people actually do a good job?

I've been telling my mother this for years

Anyone else intrigued by the idea of getting custom perfume made? (Ignore the first paragraph, it made me throw up im my mouth a little, too)
This is super gorgeous and this is super mesmerizing
Young children are sociopaths. It's one of my favorite things about them.
And that's all she wrote. Have a great weekend!
*Note: If you really did try to count how many pairs of shoes are in the picture, the answer is eleven.
