Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley September 6, 2013

Football season is here (yes!) and we were rooting for Denver last night since the Ravens beat the 49ers in the Superbowl earlier this year (boo Ravens, sorry fans). Speaking of football, I am smitten with this kitchen featured in Architectural Digest, it’s the LA home of quarterback Tom Brady and model Gisele Bundchen. Follow the link to see the entire home and show your man the weight room, he will totally drool.

Have a lovely weekend friends!



  1. Wow, what a kitchen! Does Gisele even cook? Haha who needs to when you could just sit there and absorb all the light in that place!

  2. What a kitchen! But, what would you expect? Thanks for all these great links. You’ve done the work for me –kinda like picking up the Reader’s Digest ;)

  3. Every single link I tried went to an advertisement for a MS medication. Not sure what is going on. But I’d love to see the real links. Can you check on that?

  4. Well, and things are fine now. Gosh that was very odd. Nevermind I guess. Have a great weekend!

  5. I had the same problem as Becky. All of the links directed me to weird sites. On hover the link addresses were choppy and seemed to have some kind of flitting Ad prefix.

    • Wow Kristine and Becky, I’ll have my IT guy check out what might be wrong, hope it’s not something serious…. thank you!

  6. Wow, I’m loving her closet, but when you make $47 million a year to look good I guess you need a closet like that.

    My husband is a die hard 49ers fan too (even though we live in the midwest). He has loved them for over 2 decades now and I’m so happy to see them becoming do good again. We just got our daughter the cutest little Gore jersey!

  7. Wow, I just loooove that Lego set! Might have to nab all the white pieces of legos from my kids’ stash tonight.

  8. the traditional Irish doors I’m dreaming about. We will be building a porch next year and heavy yellow doors is all I want.

    Love the pictures you’ve posted
