Southern Love

Just some of the stuff I'm loving right now...

1. Adele
Sure, it started with Rolling in the Deep, but have you heard the whole album? Rarely do I find one that I can listen to in its entirety and actually love! My other fave tracks are Turning Tables, Set Fire to the Rain and He Won't Go.

2. Mac Nail Lacquer in Steamy
This was a random purchase at the mall. I was actually looking for concealer, but also needed a really good new polish. I asked the Mac lady if they had any and she pulled out a tray - I immediately fell in love with this color. It's a gorgeous pink, bright and cheery for Spring, and it goes on amazingly smooth!

3. Abstract Landscape Giclee Print - Etsy
I've ordered this for my gallery wall in the family room. The colors and beautiful background shade of teal make me smile. I pined this on Pinterest last night and people are repinning it like crazy. Isn't it gorgeous? I would love the original too!

4. Water for Elephants, The Movie
I absolutely adored this book, and love some RPattz too, so I'm hoping Mike and I can get away for a date night either this weekend or next week to see this! I'm obsessed with the music that plays in the promo and the amazing vintage look of the whole film. I'm just hoping it does the book justice - has anyone seen it yet? What did you think?

5. Lourdes Sánchez Whales Pillow Cover, West Elm
This came through on an e-blast from West Elm this week. My gauge on whether or not I really love something is if I keep coming back to it in my mind and this is definitely one of those that keep popping up in my head. I love everything about these pillows and need to figure out how to make them work in my house just so I have an excuse to buy them!

6. Pinterest
I mentioned earlier this week my new love of Pinterest, but just needed to say it again. It's become my favorite thing to do at night right before bed. I'll snuggle in with my iPad (romantic, I know) and pin a couple of cool things that inspire me. I could totally get lost on this site.

One of my most favorite things to do when reading other blogs is get inspiration and see what other people are into out there! What about you? What are you absolutely loving right now? Share you cool finds!


  1. That abstract print is lovely, as is the whale pillow cover! And I'm a bit of a Pinterest addict too - off to add you there!

  2. I love love love Pinterest! I'm following you now! I find such inspiration from it! And, many delicious recipes!

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'…
