Top Picks

My girls definitely took the top style honors of the night - Michelle in Chanel Haute Couture and Cate in Givenchy Haute Couture. It doesn't get much better than that!

Clutter Craving

There is something inside of my OCD brain that craves clutter. It brings comfort and a sense of home that modern design lacks. Don't get me wrong - I love a modern style, but clutter brings the warmth that a home needs!

PS - The hubby got me The Selby is in Your Place, and it is so clutter-mania fantastic!

Light and Airy

Today I have quite a few things on the to-do list, but I am finally feeling better so I think I can handle it all with ease. And I'm definitely in a light and airy kind of mood!

Isn't Sasha so lovely? And what - is that a braid she is wearing?! Sublime styling!

Good Dose of Medicine

Sometimes all the medicine we need is a good leather chair, a blanket and some magazines. (I'm dying for that chair!)

Still recovering from my allergies. Hopefully, I'll be fully charged tomorrow.

My Birthday

Today I am another year older, and it seems that my allergies are another day worse! I don't get it - why can't they just leave me alone?

Cheers to a wonderful birthday thanks to all my friends and family (and trying to combat these allergy and sinus problems!)

All I want is a balloon and pretty dress minus the runny nose!

Is it fall yet? I just can't handle waiting 6 months for these clothes! He is so young and so spot on!

Genius Idea

Books as side table! Space and decor solution! So eclectic!

OK - back to speaking in sentences. I'm not so much of a "hunting" girl (not at all) but I love the idea of using antlers as jewelry hooks!

The Weekend Kitchen

It's on the weekends that I crave a clean, simple, well designed kitchen. And I would take a small one, if it had as much "quirk" as this one.

And to top it all off with white - now, that's the icing on the cake! (White icing on white cake, of course!)

The Combo

Since the weather likes to play games with us, (especially recently, which does not bode well to my allergies!) picking out your daily outfit can be a bit tricky.

Is it hot and humid, or warm and windy, or freezing and icy? Nobody knows!

The outfit combo du jour topping my list is definitely the lace and fur combo! So eclectic, and yes . . . bohemian! I'm wanting this outfit perfection (with the messy low bun thrown in as well.) So chic!

This day (and the other 364) are dedicated to my valentine . . . the hubby!

Sunday, February 13, 2011


I find it so delightful to have a beautiful day to lay around and take time to catch up on all the little things! And since tomorrow is the official day of LOVE, (honestly, every day is the day of love for me) I am getting all the little "specials" together for the hubby!

Burger Anyone?

For some reason, when the weather treats us with such a fair dose of generosity, I just want to hang out outside and do some patio eating! (See yesterday's post!)

And what better way to treat yourself than a burger! (I would probably opt for a chicken sandwich, but you get the picture!) And I know the hubby would be dying for the option above by the uber-talented Katie Quinn Davies.

Patio Love

Come on - why do patios tease me so much? It is images like these that make me want to have a house (yes, a real house - in the city, of course!) oh so badly! Give me a sunny day and a good patio - I'm set!

The warm colors, the feel - perfection!

Such a Lady

Ladylike fashion is making a huge comeback and it all started with Marc Jacobs' 2010 Fall Collection for Louis Vuitton. We are getting so prim and proper and I am liking it (on some days!)

I really love the "buttoned-up" dress and clutch with the pink booties! Such a fantastic combo!

Hello Sunshine

The sun has come out to visit today and is melting all our snow we got yesterday. It is such a happy time for us here in Texas - SUNSHINE! (You would think that we have been cooped up for months, but it's only been a week! EEK!)

It's time to get out and stretch our legs, right in time for the big game tomorrow.

Texas Snow Day

The office is closed today thanks to a little snow that hit us up last night! Brrr!

Snuggle Buddy

All this cold weather makes me so tired and lazy. I could definitely use a little friend like this to cuddle up with!

So Inviting

I would take this bedroom in a heartbeat! And yes, probably never make it out of bed!

The wind out there is a killer! The weather decided to bring us a little snow and ice today after teasing us with the sunshine all weekend. (Oh, how crazy!)

All I wanted to do was pile on the sweaters and park myself in front of a good movie, but that was not reality. Even though us southerners want to stop life as we know it once some little snowflakes come to visit, life must go on! We must function in the most un-functional environment possible. (
Yes, I'm exaggerating, forgive me. I know it's not un-functional and many people deal with way worse for way longer.)

It's just a little rough when you have ice all over your car with no ice scrapper! (Don't worry - the hubby came to the rescue . . . but with one of my kitchen spatulas!)

I'm going to be enjoying the sweaters for some time now. (I can feel the warmth!) The cold isn't leaving until next week!
