little nuggets.

i get lost in their site.
the most beautiful children's clothing.
tiny details.
amazing construction.
age appropriate.
so feminine.
rough and tumble for the lads.
genious site layout.

not that I'm looking or anything...

lil side note: i think this little girl could look like Ry's? maybe.... just maybe.

This is a stray from my typical posts... but I have some guilt about not sharing this scrumptious little product with you earlier... I know many of you pass by this lonely little jar weekly hidden on the bottom of the shelf at the grocery store. I am here to perhaps sway you into bending down and purchasing this goo goodness. I am fully aware this obsession is a very unhealthy problem, but we usually buy 2 - 3 jars of this stuff every time we go to the store. It makes anything magical... instant s'mores, delectable fruit, etc. Please give this little ditty a fighting chance... I fear it might be pulled from the shelves soon, and that my friends, would be a downright travesty.

creative uses for the goo.

one down...

One year and counting... so blessed that I am married to my best freind in the whole wide world universe and in love with him to infinity... :)
"I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday"
- Jason Mraz
We both agree, this song sums us up quite nicely.

Jackie O.

I don't know why, I can't get enough of the Kennedys and there is just something about Jackie... I think she is the epitome of a stunning, classy, elegant, and timeless woman. I really don't know many people in the media who I can say that about today. I'm doing some research for work about her and had to share...
I have always thought she would be on my top 10 list of people to meet...
and it is quite obvious to see where Miss Carolyn Bassette got her fashion sensibility.

my new chalkboard.

I love the look of chalkboards in a kitchen... Ryan and I just got a rather large school blackboard this weekend at an estate sale! It is probably one of my favorite possessions at the moment. It runs almost from floor to ceiling and is also magnetic! I can't wait to write recipes, ideas, notes, thoughts, quotes and drawings on it... one day, it could even be moved into a fun playroom. Please come over and brainstorm on it with me whenever you please. I am worried this item will just add to my anal need to plan... everything.

ahhh, the Crosley phone... I really would not have trouble finding a place for this in my home... preferably my kitchen. It would make it look like a little cozy diner.
You can get this little beaut. at Urban Outfitters.


Awesome signs by OhkayK... The top quote by Helen Keller is one of my faves in life.

I couldn't agree more!

I can't wait to make a playroom one day... complete with swings, jungle gyms, chalkboard walls, an arts & crafts center, dress up boxes, a skit stage, reading chairs, and absolutely no video games allowed.

...life is too short...

My thoughts, precisely.

Everyone needs to dance for just a little bit everyday... everyone. Trust me, it makes the day just a little better. :)

those summer nights...

The first long, summer night was last night... and it made me extremely happy. Ry and I had an early dinner sitting outside with a glass of Sangria and fresh summer veggies, cheeses, and BBQ. I only wish the pool was warm, it would have made the night complete with a little dive. I absolutely cannot wait for swimming, dibble-dabble, barbeques, and most importantly the lake. Nothing feels more like summer than be bopping along on the lake with some close friends and great tunes. Summer, please get here soon...

This is undoubtedly one of my favorite shoots ever... I saw it a while back while at the groc. on the cover of Marie Claire, I know, who would have thunk?
All three of these ladies seem to just own who they are. They appear unwaveringly confident in themselves... which to me screams sexy & inspiring. I hope they keep it up, because these types of women seem to be dwindling in tinsel town these days...
They are hot. hot. hot.
