This Summer ...


I can already tell that I will be obsessed with the bright pop of peplum and the old nostalgia of high-waisted shorts.  My summer staples!

A Bright Spot





I am a huge fan of The Selby.  I love seeing inside people's homes (from all over the world) when they are not so "done up" for a magazine spread.  It's refreshing and natural to see a home with character and a "lived in" quality that does not come with a  high priced interior designer tag.

This is one that just "spoke to me" right off the screen.  I love the colors and boho feel of every room.  Check it all out here.  You won't be disappointed!

Me and You


It's me and you today!  (Yep, I'm dating my hot hubby today and wouldn't want to be anywhere else.)  I am so glad that we get a little adventure, but the fact of the matter is I am beyond happy just sitting on the couch next to you doing absolutely nothing.

Mr. Blueberry


I have been pretty smitten with the blueberry as of late.  I could eat those little fellas on pretty much anything and everything, and trust me, I have been.  They are so good on pancakes, yogurt, cereal, salads, ice cream, oatmeal . . . your options are pretty much endless.  And they are like a little super berry (packed full of all the good stuff!)  I would have to say you're crazy if you don't like these little guys.

Do me a favor - try some blueberries on a food of your pickin' and let me know what you think?  Love?  Like?  Hate? (I doubt it.)

Confession 009: Tired


Another Monday and I am just flat out tired.  As you noticed, I didn't post a lot last week because I have been so worn out.  (In need of a break!)  Hopefully, things will settle down a little this week, and I can sneak in a long weekend to just . . . REST.  We all need that once in a while and my while is now. 

Why can't we get summer breaks anymore?!

Dear Mom,

You are wonderful in every way possible.  Thank you for always going above and beyond for me no matter what the circumstance may be.  I know you will always be there for me because you have never failed in that.  I am so blessed to have you as a mother, and I thank God for you every single day.  Happy Mother's Day!  I love you!

Love,
Lauren

Tidy As Can Be


Most people who know me would call me tidy (or OCD, take your pick) and that's why this little side table captured my heart.  Look at those books stacked in a row - tallest to shortest I might add.  And that old school radio - set perfectly in place.  And don't forget about those vases on top - perfect proportions to round out the perfect vignette.  It all seems so simple, but truly makes my heart a little bit happier.

Saturday...Finally


We made it another week to another weekend only to start it all over again in 2 days.  Here's to hoping we all get to enjoy some pretties today.

Braided



I have already mentioned a time or two here that I'm not the most creative and daring when it comes to my hair.  I would be classified as the boring one who can be seen wearing her hair down, in a pony tail or a top knot.  (I don't stray too far from those three!)  But, on occasion, I can be seen rocking out a braid or two or many.  (Sometimes I like to make a couple of tiny braids all over that aren't so recognizable unless you are standing right next to me.  Makes me kind of feel like a rebel!) 

I say all this to say that I would like to sport the braid more often but always feel like it makes me look like a 7 year old.  (I already have that problem and don't really need anything to add to it!)  On others I don't think it looks young at all, but bohemian, free-spirited, carefree - everything I want to be. 

Why oh why am I stuck looking like the little sister and everyone else gets to be the cool hippie?
