Jenny (MFAMB) Shares Her Favorites

I feel like maybe I should curse a little (a lot) and talk about bodily functions in my introduction of this next designer favorites feature.  Jenny of My Favorite and My Best is everyone's favorite potty mouthed design blogger.  Maybe you've been reading her for while now, but I first found and fell hard for her when I read her post about design trends she hates and got swept away reading all of the subsequent comments.  Genious.  Anyway, Jenny's here today sharing some of her favorite things in her home.  Enjoy.

{The lovely lady du jour.}

hey there lookers, lingerers and lovers!  i am jenny and i just rediscovered the bulk section at whole foods and am at present on a sugar high from an entire bag of chocolate covered pretzels.   

in truth my favorite things in my house are my toilet, my tv and my refrigerator but that wouldn't make a very pretty post.  so i picked some other awesome places and things around my house..

 i am very big on my bar:

not only for the alcohol dreams it provides but bc i bought that piece for a song on craigslist and transformed it into mid century magic... 

it's on great big wheels for travel drinking. 

next on the list of favorites is my oly bench that i ALSO got on craigslist for what is known in the design blogging circle as the greatest craigslist deal ever in the history of EVER...
an oly bench is right around 2,000 dollars.  i got mine for 150 dollars...

i am the craigslist whisperer.

and here is where i became semi famous...

this is my desk in my bedroom. (also a painted redo) it is my favorite place at about 7:30 AM when i am half way through my cup of organic french roast and ezekial brand sprouted english muffin with strawberry jelly and 8 pounds of butter.  it's all about balance. 

i hope you enjoyed yourselves.  i aim to please.  
thank you chassity!  you rock, your blog rocks and i thank you for inviting me to talk about myself on your blog. 
love forever,
jenny aka mfamb aka your mom
Big thanks to Jenny for stopping by.  I hope you all enjoyed and head over to MFAMB to read more from her.  And if you don't love the bar cart on wheels, you're crazy.  Isn't there a need for travel drinking in the home? 
And that's all folks.

If blogger doesn't soon get its shit together, I'm going to loose my mind. In any event, loved this even without the pictures. Jenny, you're always pure entertainment and you have wicked good style. And Chassity, you know I think you're the total cats meow. xo

Sara Mueller said...

It is a little upsetting not being able to see the pictures, but I am sure they are fabulous. Have a great day Chassity.

Amanda said...

I am with Christine! I am glad to know it's not just my blog having problems...I am missing out on great comments, but none the less I am a huge fan of MFAMB, really hope to see her on Design Star!

Natalie said...

I love me some Jenny. One of my favorite daily reads, especially her housewife recaps! I too concur that rolling bars are the bomb! Btw you are making me want to bust out my Sam Edlemens today for this bleak weather, you are oh so right they are perfect in the rain! xoxo

Stephanie said...

oh how i love jenny. a girl unafraid to be herself. i cry laughing reading her blog. her song to nate berkus (sp?) was hysterical. great feature!

Shannon @ What's Up Whimsy said...

Hey Chassity, I have only been on Jenny's site once, but I am for sure subscribing to her RSS feeds now!

And, if you're have problems with Blogger, I have a solution! I'm not sure if you work from a PC or Mac, but I use Windows Live Writer and I love it! It is so much more user-friendly than Blogger. You still have to use Blogger to publish, but it's a lot easier to lay out your posts, especially with pictures. Let me know if you have any questions.

Shannon @ What's Up Whimsy said...

The pictures are working now! Never mind!

Aubrey said...

It's really the sense of humor that does it for me, she is hilarious! I'm all about finding those awesome scores on craigs list too...she really is the craigs list whisperer! (c:

Next on the news...I named you as a fav blogger and gave you (for the umpteenth time) the stylish blogger award...I couldn't give it to just anyone (c:

Jenny, you are hilarious....can you share your craigslist whisperer tips and tricks with me? Green (really more of a shade of chartreuse) with envy over your Oly score.

PS. You should star in a Craigslist Whisperer TV show. I would be your biggest fan!

I think someone is going to have to give me advice on how to find such great deals on craigslist. Maybe I'm not living in the right area. Love the alcohol collection- nice to see good taste (Pimms and Bombay- best GIN)!!!!

Tamara Nicole said...

Ummm I love her already, she drinks Pimms! Lol love her attitude and decor:-)

I've been there, over at casa mfamb, and the images do not do it justice. This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the fabulousness that is Jenny's home. She is, without a doubt, the hostess with the mostess and a decorating genius. The girl is pure magic!
