Pink Pink Pink

Just to start off, I am NOT a pink girl.  But (and yes, that's a big BUT) I have been so loving pink lately.  I have bought 2 pairs of pink pants and TOO many pink tops to count.  What is going on with me?  All this color craze for Spring has gotten to me.  I'm not really sure who I am anymore - neutral lover turned color fanatic!  I am just loving pink, and what's the problem with that?

The hubby even brought up my crazy color mindset recently when I mentioned that I want a pink couch.  REALLY - me want a pink couch?  A pink couch!  (The hubby might have a little problem with that.)

I have been on the hunt for antlers for quite some time now, and after running across these images, my fondness only deepens.  I love the rustic (and I am not a rustic girl by any means) and eclectic look it adds to a modern space.  Quirkiness, for me, is a big draw and man, oh man are these babies drawing me in.

Retro Beauty

From the moment I saw this hairstyle on pinterest, I knew that I loved it.  Yep, didn't have to think about it, didn't have to question it - just loved it.  And now I need to 1) figure out how to create this little gem of a hairstyle and 2) figure out someplace to where it!

Breakfast in Bed

Here's to hoping for a breakfast in bed, lay around all day, catch up on magazines kind of weekend.  I am in such need.  What is your idea of a "restful" weekend?

I have to admit it, Spring has gotten to me.  (Maybe it's because we didn't have a true winter AT ALL!)  I have been obsessed with color lately and believe it or not - pastels!  Well, maybe not your "all the way pastels" pastels, but I am definitely loving a pale pink shade with a bright pop of orange.  Love it!  Want it!  Borderline obsessed with it! 

I will take that outfit, that bouquet and most definitely that cabinet.  Yep, just go ahead and pack it up and ship it my way.  I might not have a place for the little baby yet, but trust me, I will find one!

Traveling Fools

This past weekend, the hubby and I took a road trip to west Texas.  (I hate being in the car!)  And to all you out there who haven't been to west Texas and are wondering if its everything you imagine it to be - yes, it is!  If you imagine it to be dry, windy, and hot with tumble weeds and dust devils - then you are spot on.  I was reluctant to admit that I liked this environment at first, but each time we go back, it grows on me little by little.

And as to me hate being in the car, I'll have to say that this trip wasn't half bad.  (How can it be bad when you are singing at the top of your lungs every Adele song you have on iTunes?)  I can't complain.

Today's a top knot kind of day!  We got back late last night from being out of town, and today is full or errands and chores.  Who would want to do their hair for that?

These are a few of my favorite things . . .

This room embodies almost all of my favorite things - white bed, pops of color here and there, birds (in decor only, not the real ones) and lucite furniture.  What a great way to start off the weekend! 

Have a fabulous one!  (I'm taking a couple of days off, so you can bet I will be having a fabulous one.)

Long Hair

These girls are making me want to keep my long hair.  (Not to mention, I want their impeccable wardrobes as well!)  Why can't you have short hair some days, and your long hair magically grows back on others?  Why!

Pretty Birds

I am so wanting these pretty little birds from Etsy.  They are simply perfect - vintage and quirky!

Monday Blues

The weekend flew by, and here we are again - Monday.  Here I am (in my wonderful business attire) wishing that this could be my Monday wardrobe every single week.  How awesome would that be?  I think I could handle the Monday Blues a little better if I felt as comfortable as this outfit (from Madewell) looks!

Color Me Yellow

I am not usually a bright color wearin' gal, but lately I've caught the color bug.  And not just any color bug, but YELLOW!  I've really never been a huge fan of yellow for anything - until recently.  Last fall, I was into (really into) mustard, and that was strange for me.  But now that spring is just around the corner, my tastes are gravitating toward a brighter, more neon, shall we say yellow.  Weird.  Just weird.  But I love it!  (And I really love that last outfit combo!)

Paper Train

To paper or not to paper?  I say paper, and by paper, I mean wallpaper!  I have been obsessed with wallpaper for years now and can't wait to get my own house, so I can go crazy with wonderful prints just like these.  The only reason I want to buy a house sometimes is just for the decorating.  Is that horrible to say?  We, renters, are so limited in our options!

Summer Shoes

I am a devoted Garance fan.  (If you're not, there is definitely something wrong with you!)  Every single one of her posts is so witty and charming and funny and down-to-earth (and her photography is awesome.)  This little shoe post hits the nail on the head around these parts.  It is so hot (like 80 degrees hot!) and it's only March.  That makes me feel 1) ready for summer and 2) scared for summer - is it going to be another 100 degree marathon? 

At least we can wear some pretty summer shoes and sandals.
