{please visit Epheriell here}

Springing into Fall is in full effect around these parts and the leaves and wind are finally starting to get in line to claim their day in the sun (or shade, as the case may be.) With the onset of cooler weather, the hint of pumpkin flavored everything wafting through the air, and the promise of crisp days, it is time to decorate. Does anyone else find themselves adorning every corner of their lives at this time of year? It is the early nights that do it. They call for perfect lighting, warm and cozy clothing, decorations. Why let our mantles have all the glory this season? Let’s start small. Let’s start with ourselves.

Epheriell is one of those finds you just can’t help but shout from the rooftops. Jess Van Den creates eco-conscious, sterling silver jewelry that stands on its own merits. (Its not often you can say that about jewelry.) Each piece is handcrafted and designed with such a simple and chic precision, you will find yourself coveting (and pinning!) the entire line with abandon. The four examples of Urban Eco Earrings pictured above are only the tip of the iceberg. Check out the necklaces, the rings, the earring of the month club! Epheriell will have you covered from now until the showers of April start their cascade. Trust.

    I like these!  I laugh all the time so this is a hard question… but oh yeah, it was last night quoting Nacho Libre at my boyfriend.  I don’t like to watch Nacho Libre but it’s soooo good to quote!

    Last night actually.  It happens quite a lot at our house– I’m a big believer in laugh-til-you-cry laughter, and fortunately my husband is really funny!  We have nonsense conversations where we both argue ridiculous points with big-eyed sincerity, and he had me in funny-tears right before bedtime…its definitely “you had to be there” humor, but I love it {and him– he’s my favorite person!}

    At my puppy. She is so silly we often just sit and watch her rather than television. The most recent laughing fit occured because she chewed through the pipe that pumps wated into the toilet. When we came home she was just frolicking in the ‘indoor sprinkler’ she had created with the biggest grin on her face. What could we do but laugh? (Note: no real damage was done, the bathroom is tile and a dehumidifier cleared it up in a few days)

    my husband and i were signing our lease to our new apartment. my 3 1/2 month old let out the longest, loudest fart we have ever heard completely interrupting our manager. we all were silent until my daughter finished. then once the coast was clear my manger continued what she was saying but was then cut off by my baby spitting up all over my leg. all bets were off at that point and we all lost it.

    The other day I was eating lunch with my dad and my daughter. She was doing something silly for attention and my dad turned to me and jokingly said “You need to get a hold on your child” my 7 year old stopped what she was doing and serious faced turned to him and said in a stern tone “No Papa, you need to get a hold on your child”. We turned and looked at each other and just started cracking up. Sometimes, the things she says and the way she says them make me think she is secretly my mother.

    the whole story is way too long to tell you here, but suffice to say it begins with my bff’s grandmother saying, out of the blue, “i only ever set myself on fire once…” mom-mom is hard of hearing, so she continued the story but we were lost. she is fine, was never hurt in a fire and all was well, but really, the beginning of the story was so bizarre that we simply couldn’t stop laughing.

    The last time I laughed so hard I cried was when my roommate and I, after a series of rough days, decided to open a bottle of wine and watch all of Beyonce’s music videos and try to learn the dances. Needless to say, we are terrible dancers, but we felt a billion times better after our dance session. We were both rolling around on the floors at several points, laughing (and snorting) at how silly we look. It was the best method for much needed stress relief!

    The last time was when my friend told me about a story of when she stung by a bee under her dress in a place you really don’t want to be stung, while she was trying to photograph a wedding. hysterical

    just yesterday my husband surprised me with a picnic at Mt. Diablo in the bay Area (Calif.) and it was so cold outside we ate lunch in the car and got into a giggle fit that ended in tears. 🙂

    A few weeks ago at my daughter’s primary school production where one of the students forgot his line, then whispered (loudly) to the others, “I don’t know! Improvise!!!” 😀

    Hmm…my husband always makes hilarious situations out of stressful ones. I was overwhelmed with work last week and yet I found myself crying from laughter.

    Our new kitten who has not yet been introduced to the other cats in our house escaped from my husband’s watchful eye and was just strutting across the hall and when I told my husband he shut the door mistake instead of running out the door…you had to be there but it was cute and funny.

    Over the weekend was my cousin’s bachelorette party. Playing Apples to Apples with ladies ages 21 to almost 60 was pretty funny. And while we are all drinking and telling our own stories, and every now and then pulling a little dry humor had all of us in tears laughing so hard!

    Kellie says:

    My dad has a silly, unique sense of humor. This weekend we were traveling with my parents and he told a story about how much he loves the doughnut shop. It doesn’t seem funny now, but the way he told it was perfectly him and had us all rolling. And then I laughed even harder at all of us laughing and then I get the belly-ache, crying going too!

    When my boyfriend, who is a professional painter (artist) was at work with a new painting when he messed up, and decided to start semi-over. I came back a couple hours later and right in the middle of the canvas he had painted a gigantic t-rex doing double dunks on a basketball hoop, it was hilarious. The face, the background, it made me die from laughter!

    A couple weeks ago my son (he is almost 2 years old) and I were dancing. He started doing his own invented dance that we now call “The Duck Face Squat Dance”. The dance looks exactly like it sounds and it is flipping hilarious!

    It only happens maybe twice a year but I laugh so hard, I cannot speak and  my laughter is so high pitched and annoying it’s been labelled the machine gun laugh.  Yesterday I was carrying a mannequin, one hand on her boob and the other between her legs when an old lady walked past and did a triple take, her shocked face made me giggle but then a customer started laughing at my laugh which made me laugh harder, I couldn’t contain myself for a good 20 mins.

    I’m mid 30’s and have the most fabulous 60 odd year old friend who is extremely eloquent.  as often happens, she had me in hysterics in the weekend with her continual inclusion of mid sentence expletive for dramatic effect.  it’s refreshing to know that when you get all ‘grown up’ you can still talk ‘rubbish’ if the situation suits!

    Emma L says:

    Last weekend. The weather was terrible so my husband and I curled up on the sofa with tea, watching an episode of “Dirty Jobs”. Something happened in the episode that brought out my husband’s heartiest, most infectious laughter, and even though I missed the funny scene (I was getting more tea in the kitchen) I laughed until I cried simply because my husband’s laughter tickled me so.

    Just the other night at dinner.  My mom is hilarious just by being herself and saying what comes to mind… so we laugh a lot!!

    It was when I was driving around with my fiance in the car…we were being silly and I remember thinking: I love that we can do nothing and still have the time of our lives. 🙂 Laughter is the key to happiness, for sure.

    little kids can always get me laughing! my birthday was a month ago and one of my friends brought some balloons to tie onto the back of the chair at dinner. while out, my nephews had called & left me a bday message. when i called him back, he asked what presents i got- so i told him about the balloons. he got very silent and then said in that deep, excited, monster voice only little boys have “YOU GOT BALLOONS?! I LOVE BALLOONS! NO FAIR!” i still haven’t stopped laughing.

    Kids have a corner in this market — especially for me when their non-sense goes dark without their knowing: while putting my son to bed last night, we were talking about how I used to strap him to my back to wash the dishes. He was so interested in how I got him bak there and why I’d need to. “We didn’t have dishwasher, then, did we?” “No, baby, we didn’t.”

    I’m nostalgic about those moments, and my head is swimming with all the warmth of a mom. “We’re lucky we have one now, right?” “Right.” 

    I’m thinking, you know, that’s right, we’re incredibly lucky. Look at how far we’ve come. What a great life I have, me and my son here in this warm and quiet house. I’m astounded at how life can have these moments…
    “Dishwashers waste energy, Mom, but that’s ok, because one day we’ll be dead.”

    Recently my mom kind of got stuck watching my brother’s dog while he and his wife vacationed. I happened to be at her home when he started “marking his territory” in several places in the house, including a Tory Burch purse of my mother’s. She was so angry, and cursing (my mother does NOT curse), I was crying and laughing uncontrollably.

    We brought our baby home from the hospital 2 weeks ago. Our two little dogs have been adjusting to having a newborn at home. Well we put her in her swing for the first time and our dogs were really curious, so as she was swinging side to side they kept trying to inch closer and closer to check it out. Well to no surprise one of our dogs got too close and the swing came back faster than he expected and smack right in the face. I felt so bad but I just couldn’t stop laughing… It scared them both so bad they ran to the other side of the room!

    Heather N. says:

    When my roommate and I were trying to go to sleep and all we could do was lie in our beds and laugh at all the stupid jokes we have together…a combination of being incredibly tired and having many hilarious memories together.

    I often find myself laughing til I cry when I’m listening to my favorite radio show BBC Scott MIlls Daily, those guys are beyond silly and Becky’s laugh is infectious! Always brings smiles and often tears of laughter.

    On vacation with my family last week. We were playing Trivial Pursuit on my phone and I guess it must have a glitch. My sister was reading her question “What type of medical equipment is this?” and it had a picture beside it. She paused and informed us, “It looks like an octopus…” Because that’s what it was, a picture of an octopus. Maybe we were still jet lagged and exhausted from a week and a half together traveling, but at that moment, it was the most hilarious thing ever.

     Last month when I went on vacation to visit my sister. It’s kindof’ offensive so I won’t go into it…

    jane says:

    watching a close friend laugh really brings on the laughter in the rest of us! she has this really unique laugh (it’s really a series of loud ‘hahahas’) and when she finds a situation too funny she goes into this silent laugh phase when she’s just shaking from laughter but complete silent. with her around, laughter’s really infectious!

    HNR says:

    The last time I can remember was with my roommate and boyfriend. I was very overtired, and had just been looking at cute animal photos online (naturally), including some photos of baby meerkats. Then, I just thought, “What if we had a bunch of baby meerkats right here, right now?” I was so excited, trying to share the idea with my roomie and boyfriend, laughing so hard at them laughing at me…those are the best kinds of laughs!

    My husband and I were on a long drive and he had trouble getting out a word, he flubbed it several times and i don’t know why but it was the funniest thing to me at the moment. Those moments are wonderful aren’t they?

    A couple weeks ago, my best friends and I were sitting on my bed on a Friday night playing Apples to Apples, and as it got later and later I got more and more tired.  All it took was a simple pun about a cactus having a point, and I was laughing for longer than I’d consider normal!

    Last week. We have a ping pong ball in the toilet with a fire drawn on it to help our two year old learn to aim. One of our very kind friends thought it was one of the kids toys and got it out of the toilet, washed it up and asked us where it belonged! I still laugh every time i think about it Hahaha

    Amy says:

    Last night my fiancé asked me why I took a bowl out and left it on the counter. I said, I didn’t. You took it out to shred cheese into. He laughed! Uhhhhh NO I didn’t. I wasn’t even going to shred any cheese! The look on his face mixed with the fact that I made it up in my head had me laughing uncontrollably as we washed the rest of the dishes side by side. 

    Silly, but yet hilarious to me 🙂

    My co-worker is a tiny bit clumsy and this fact is not a big secret. So, when a new staff person recently joined the office we got to talking about one another (getting to know you type stuff) and his clumsiness came up as a topic of conversation. I tried to describe to the new office mate the last time he’d had an incident but, without his help (laughing way too hard), I couldn’t get through the entire story … of how he actually tripped himself while getting up from the chair at his desk. Oh, boy … the visual in my mind of him getting up and then immediately going down still slays me!! Even funnier, other people in the adjoining room witnessed it, too and had a good laugh at his expense! (Btw, he was not hurt! When it happened he and I were both laughing, which only added to the hilarity. lol)
