I’m so wrong for this, but a recent link showcasing everyday people transformed into celebrities went viral. I laughed when I saw this girl as Katt Williams:

During lunch today, I took a photo of my mother simply intending it for Project 365. I started laughing hysterically when I realized she looked like Robert Smith from The Cure with that haircut. The people around us started laughing, and when I posted the image set on Facebook, it instantly went viral amongst my friends and family. The original photo:

The side-by-side comparison that had me crying-laughing for a solid hour:

And  back at home for a little improvisation, and voilà! My mom as Robert Smith from The Cure. Isn’t she a great sport?!

lucky me

What a busy week! I had an event on Wednesday in Houston, drove to Austin for the Nine Inch Nails/Soundgarden on Thursday, and then headed back to Houston for this lovely wedding on Friday.

I’m surrounded by some of the best doctors and lawyers in Houston. They bring me so much joy and make my job fun–I seriously laughed myself to sleep this night and woke up with a smile on my face. I’m so lucky to have these kick-ass peeps in my life.

Orange is such an underestimated and unexpected color in interior design. I love the warmth of this hue, and the textures feel so inviting and uplifting.

I’ve paid more attention to home decor in the last two years as I have had to furnish my own home. I tend to gravitate more towards neutrals and reds, but I might have to consider this luscious color. Burnt orange is, after all, the color of my alma mater, The University of Texas.
