Doing my second project 365! Eep. I didn’t quite know what to do when exams were over, so I went for a loooong (I think 6-8 mile) walk. Afterward, I sat on a bench in the quad on campus and watched the sun shine through the trees.
somebody does luv u
First off, woooo! I’m done with my first year of law school. I’m mostly mentally, and a little bit emotionally, fatigued. But I had a really funny/sweet little text conversation with a stranger today. When I checked my phone after my exam, I had a text from an unknown number: R u still in meetings? I love u My response: Lol you love me? Who is this? Think you have the wrong person. And...
I think that maybe, just maybe I’m embracing this twitter thing after a lot of resistance. Wanna be friends?! (I might have the lingo wrong! Oops!)

I was just super stoked to get an e-mail from Borders announcing George W’s new memoir, Decision Points (really, really digging the name), due for release on November ninth. Pre-order today, y’all! All jokes aside, though, it potentially could be a pretty interesting read.
I had stopped into the store to pick up beer for a party I was having. I passed by the seafood counter and he said, “Hey, snapper for the pretty lady?,” waving the fish over his head. I laughed and said yeah, and we got to talking as he clumsily filleted the fish. He asked why I had so much PBR, and I just laughed, and he apologized for taking so long. Really, though, I was glad. He...
photos by kirsten ellis via once wed. Most flippin’ amazing engagement pictures I’ve seen in a while. God, they’re beautiful. Check the rest here, go go go!. I want that dress.
photo via seesaw. Hmmmm, finally a little design idea that’s not beyond my skills nor my mean$. I think, when exams are done, I’ll pick up a roll of Japanese masking tape and some old books from a thrift store and put a few pages up on the wall. Lovely, lovely.
photo via le love. always.
photo by lo bjurulf I’m totally crazy for this wallpaper. I had a serious love for butterflies in my pre-teen days, and they still sort of speak to me. The table and chair are teeny-tiny, but I wouldn’t mind sitting there for a few hours with a book, or some tea.
photo via cute overload. Awww. Life might be kinda nice now, despite exams, if I could cuddle up next to this little guy.
photograph by scott schuman. People I want to be, edition 13,429. (aka anyone else but me.) The Sartorialist is in Tokyo right now, and he is posting some seriously amazing stuff. It makes me fall even more in love with Japan.
Between this post and the episode of Sex and the City where the girls go to a Yankees (boo) game, I’m dying to go to a game at Turner Field with my girl friends. (And come on, you know that a group of four girls would totally get mad hit on. BONUS!)
photo by lightroom presets. Happy Earth Day dears! This is one of my most favorite days.
photo via weddingbee. droooool. that light’s amazing, no? wish i could have perfect hair, walk in tall heels (shit, any heels at all), and kiss a cute boy in the middle of the street. le sigh.

illustration by pragyak Isn’t this wonderful? I love the name: Man Friday goes house hunting. Aww! Chirp chirp! See pragyak’s etsy shop here. (And she’s from Atlanta! It seems like so many really neat bloggers and designers are based in the ATL. Tres cool!)
Please tell me it isn’t true that some boys will always haunt my sleep. Awake, it’s fine and really, I’m over them, but somehow at night they creep into my dreams and in the morning, when I wake up, I’m shaken.
adventures in babysitting
My charge was having some “bathroom problems,” as I euphemistically like to call it. After coming out of the restroom he asked if I wanted to know why it took so long. The answer? “I am having some diarrhea. Just a little bit, though.” And then: “How old are you, Tamara?” “Twenty-three. I’m old.” “Old like you’re big, or old like...
the music room
photo by scott schuman. Freaking amazing photos over at the Sartorialist. Scott Schuman is a god. These are so different than his usual street style shots and I think even more fantastic.

why you should never try to steal a law student's...
A thief learned the mistake of trying to steal a law student’s laptop last week after after becoming a punching bag for an Arizona State student he tried to rip off. Armed with a baseball bat, the intruder, Gabriel Saucedo, allegedly climbed through an open window into Alex Botsios’ apartment, waking the student and threatening to smash his head in. Botsios was willing to let Saucedo...

photo via apartment therapy. Oh my gosh. I’m in love with this house. I’m actually pretty sure that I’ve blogged their kitchen before, but this living room is amazing, too, and this is the first I’ve seen it. More pictures here.

photo via style me pretty. Hello, mister bunny topiary! So cute.
photographs by alice b gardens photgraphy, via lanalou. oooh, springy.
Photo via simply photo. Oh my gosh. I absolutely have to go to Moomah, a New York cafe. It’s mostly a kids place, but whatever. I want this cow for my wall! Ahhh! Photo via moomah. They serve froggy guac, too!
what are we going to do today?
We woke up this morning and Sam asked What are we going to do today? and I looked at him and said Let’s go to Amsterdam and he looked back at me and said ok. I’m kinda digging this blog …they do things differently there. The name is a little cheesy, but it has really great pictures and some observations from Alistair and Sam, two Australians traveling for a year. (Personally, my travel...
Sooo, this is my one-thousandth post. Kinda weird, maybe not a big deal, but still neat. I started the blog in November 2008 (and forgot the one-year mark, whoops) out of, I think, a mix of boredom and desire to document a transitional point in my life. I guess mostly I post cute things from around the internet, but whatever. Here’s a few things I’ve done since I started Dryden Lane:...
Babies aren’t really my thing, but when I saw this trailer the other day (before Greenberg!), I gasped aloud. Such a genius idea. Greenberg was great, too. I’m kinda girlcrushing on Greta Gerwig. And I really wanna watch some mumblecore movies. Dude.
photos by seth smoot. Seth Smoot takes great photographs of food, cute boys, and the occasional taxidermy (boo).
photo via apartment therapy. The 111 Navy chair is made from ~111 Coca Cola bottles. So there is a use for those. This is awesome.
photo by fresh!carlson via once wed. Two kinda perfect people, a really lovely wedding. If ever it comes time for me to pick a wedding dress, it’s gonna be a tough call between a crumbcatcher and a sweetheart neckline, I know that much.
photo by the sartorialist. Really great, kinda sad post over at the Sartorialist.
photo by my funny eye. Hello, horsey. Horses aren’t really my favorite animal, but isn’t this just great?
image via le love. blahblahblahvintageyphotowithawistfulmessageblahblahblah i’ll always swoon for these. won’t anyone ever have a crush on me? it feels like all i ever do is crush on boys. pay it forward, dudes.
Photo for kate spade via oh happy day! I wish this was my life right now: A fabulous outfit, a cute vintage car, and a map to lead me absolutely anywhere I wish to go. (That last part, of course, is more important than the others, but a cute dress sure helps things, doesn’t it?)
Photo via seesaw. Laura Ljungkvist illustrates these super cute follow-the-line books. I love it!
Photo via style me pretty. Yes, I very much wouldn’t mind being here.
kitchens, part two.
Photo via apartment therapy. But then again, I think this is my absolute dream kitchen. Those green tiles! The green backsplash! That hood! The cabinets are upcycled from old wine crates. And it’s in Spain! Take me away…
Photo via apartment therapy. I’m not usually crazy about the aqua and red color combo, but this kitchen is really working for me. I think when I eventually have my own home, the kitchen will be the focal point and the part that I’m most eager to decorate. I love big, open kitchens with pops of color and crisp, clean feelings.
photo via cute overload. Ahhhh! That expression! The caption! (Not everyone is thrilled about Patagonia’s new line). Doggies! Doggies!
photo via book lovers never go to bed alone. cute boy + books = !!!!
photograph by cassia beck. More dreamy, gorgeous photographs. So ethereal. See more here, or buy them here.
photograph by yvette inufio. Oh my goodness. These photos make me swoon. I seriously want to blog every single one of them, and buy them all to display on my walls. Available at Yvette’s etsy shop, and/or check out her flickr.
image via le love. deep breaths.
So, I saw my first iPad today. I don’t want to sound like an old fuddy duddy, but I really, really don’t get the point. I am a huge mac fan and I love everything they do, but it just kind of baffles me. Whyyyy?
