1. Anthropologie knows a lot of things, but for some reason is really confused about how normal people spend their Sunday mornings. Exhibit A:
Yes, my morning routine on Sundays OBViously includes a ritual where I sniff my right armpit, attempt to read the mind of my water bottle, pray over an apple, then take another deep whiff of my armpit. This time, the left. Art direction fail.
2. Galveston is a tragic city – filled with dilapidated historical homes and mansions from the 1800s, and absolutely no economic structure to maintain its history. Case in point – The Mermaid & The Dolphin Resort is up for sale. It was once the home to the sister of Texas founding father Stephen F. Austin and a former Texas Governor.
Today, it’s a white trash mess of a B&B and wedding venue.
Today, every room is equipped with its own jacuzzi.
Let that take a minute to sink in.
Because nothing says historical B&B to me like a nasty-ass hot tub in every room. As if Galveston isn’t humid and smelly enough?
I would love nothing more in the WORLD to have enough money to buy the place, de-renovate it back to its former glory, and turn it into the beautiful wedding venue it could be.
I mean, if you look past the PURPLE WALLS in the ballroom to the original hardwood and antique four post beds, it just oozes potential.
