You have ticked an option that displays only objects that will be rendered. Open the Properties panel with N and untick Only Render under Display. You can actually select objects (the 3d manipulator widget is still being shown) and move them as normal, you just cannot see the visible outline.

Did I hit a key command for that? Don't want to repeat. – kjfagan Apr 3 '14 at 16:32
@kjfagan No, there is no shortcut, you were probably poking around. – iKlsR Apr 3 '14 at 16:33
HUGE. Thank you so much. Yeah, probably hit it on accident. – kjfagan Apr 3 '14 at 16:33
@kjfagan feel free to accept the answer if it solve your problem. This will help future users. – Vader Apr 3 '14 at 16:41
@iKlsR, actually I think there is a shorcut (can't remember if I bind it myself, or if it's default): ALT + SHIFT + Z – Polosson Apr 3 '14 at 17:10
