Tickled Pink

I have to admit, I don't think I have a single item in my house that is pink.

Maybe that's why I'm so in love with the latest issue of House Beautiful magazine, featuring the color pink as a vibrant and exciting way to perk up a room.

Or maybe it's because I'm desperately wanting spring to get here.

Or it could be because February is the month for lovers and I love Valentine's day.

But, I totally think I've found the colors to use when updating my downstairs bath.

And if you're not convinced and want to be trendy and hip, honeysuckle pink is Pantone's color of the year for 2011. I absolutely adore this shade of pink. Look for it to show up in weddings, home and party decor, make-up shades and clothing throughout this year!

Random Side Note: My parents' yard used to be filled with yellow honeysuckle, the pink ones are actually harder to find around here. Which leads me to this question: have you ever tasted real honeysuckle straight from the vine? If not, you gotta try it this spring. It's a tiny little drop of sweetness that tastes as good as it smells.

Are you gonna try out the color for 2011 in your home or wedding, etc.?

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
