Packing it up!

We are off to the mountains in the morning, and I am right in the middle of packing. Oh what to bring! I guess I can leave my heels and vintage suitcases at home and take the cargos and back pack with me. Such a dilemma to decide. It will be a grand adventure though!

Hello to hiking, sweating, dirt and yes - fishing! (It's really not so bad.) It's a good change of pace to this city life. Check back in a week and I'll be back! And I might be doing a little posting while I'm up in 'dem mountains. (Only if we can find internet connection!)

Cat Deeley

Is anyone else as obsessed with So You Think You Can Dance as me? I can't wait to watch it each week and probably my most favorite part of the show is - Cat! Love her! Do you?

Clean Blue & White

I know posting has been a little sparse this week, but sometimes life just gets to going and there is little time for extras. Oh well, I promise this week will be better. And then next week, we'll be out on vacation - so posting will definitely be sparse or not at all. But I'll be back . . . if I have to!

With this heat wave (I guess all of summer is a heat wave in Texas) all I'm craving is clean, light spaces. And isn't blue and white the perfect combo?

I am in love with hydrangeas (in fact we have some in our little house now - pretty) and I would die for those white washed wood floors. (Ok, not die because then I couldn't enjoy them. You know what I mean.)

(Maybe I'm loving clean blue and white because it reminds me of the ocean. I don't know and does it really matter? It is pretty!)

Lately, I've been a little obsessed with bracelets, watches, rings - anything that goes on your wrists and hands! I am just in a phase; I always seem to do that. I just overload one accessory at one time and then move on - go figure!

It's wedding season, everybody! (As if you didn't already know that with the stack of invitations sitting on your counter.) Even though we were married in November, wedding season brings great memories and emotions back to me. And what better accessory do you need than 1. a handsome groom and 2. a flower in your hair! So pretty!

Which Table to Choose?

I am drawn to all 3 of these tables - but which one to choose? That is the question. Would you go with the sleek 70's version, the charming eclectic version, or the casual modern one?

Could I just have 3 kitchens? Is that too much?

Lara Stone

I'm kinda in love with Lara Stone. She is just so striking and so real at the same time. And yes, I love the gap-toothed smile! Anyone else's thoughts?

Tidy Bedroom

Mondays always have me longing for my bed. And isn't this one so cute and tidy? Yes, it's not the biggest of rooms, or beds at that, but what more do you need? I will always chose charm and character over space and grandness!

Stripes are so in fashion right now, but they are not only meant for clothing - look how good they look in your home!

I'm so obsessed with that chair. I think am going to have to stalk and track it down. That is why I love Design Sponge Sneak Peeks so much - they let you see other quirky finds in people's homes that you just can't see in store windows. Exactly what I want!

Messy Hair

When I was a young-in, I always wanted the stick straight hair that always looked so polished. But in reality, I had the thick, messy, wavy hair that seemed so out of place.

The truth now - I love my messy hair and wouldn't trade it for anything. It's time to embrace what we are given and stop wanting what we don't have!

Calling All to Breakfast

I think I could drag myself out of bed early every morning if I could come to a breakfast table this lovely!

Happy Dating Anniversary

Today marks the day when a very handsome 19 year old took me out on a first date to On The Border - 7 years ago! Yes, it has been 7 years! Wow, does time fly.

What was suppose to be a summer fling turned into a 4 year dating relationship that then turned into a 4 month engagement that then turned into a 2 1/2 year marriage! (And still counting!)

I could not be any more blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life and am so thankful for that harmless first date. We clicked right away and knew it was something special from the get go.

So, happy "dating" anniversary, my honey! And no, we don't usually count our "dating" anniversaries (we go for the wedding ones now.) I just want to remember that special date that changed my life 7 years ago!

Put Together Neutrals

When everything seems so out of control, all I want is a perfect put together interior to come settle into. (The neutral color doesn't hurt either.) It's so comforting and relaxing (I know, it might just be to me!) But when my OCD mind needs a break, I want a symmetric layout please!
