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!

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
