you should book her for your next event.
she is really cool & will make you laugh till you cry.
You will want to be her.
-mrs. frazier {the girl who uses the word, "cool" too often}

Photography by my other really cool talented bestie, Lauren Larsen & Woodsy asked me to design this postcard for her & the band. such fun.

Book her, she will not disappoint. She sang at my wedding ceremony & stole the show. :) trust me on this one.

canNOT wait.

I absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt, please keep me from squealing, you better-believe-it, smack me upside the head, canNOT wait for SATC2. Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor & go try to steal SJP's gold glitter Loubys that I have been eyeing for incredibly too long. This post just fuels my love for SJP even more & takes it to an unhealthy level. mark. my. words... I am counting down the days. {I confess, I do love the story line, but I more so go to drool over the fashion statements & gorgeous apparel.} sigh.
Habitually Chic did an awesome post on Carrie & Big's decor in their apartment.

lemony fresh weekend...

Nothing says fresh to me like the taste & smell of lemons... we have some huge, sweet lemons from California that I want to consume this weekend that were generously given to us by a co-worker. I am thinking the cookies above look delightful, from Real Simple... I've have them flagged for a while, & I think this weekend is the perfect time to give them a whirl. mmm mmmm.

We have been eagerly awaiting our Meyer Lemon Tree to bloom {hoping it will turn out looking like the one above with my black thumb...}My sweet parents gave it to us as our 2 year anniversary gift... how perfect is that? I have been wanting one for quite some time now... I cannot wait to just be be able to walk in the backyard to pluck one up for a treat on a whim.

This weekend also equals spring cleaning at the Frazier household & I cannot wait... weird? yes. My wonderful mother-in law gave me this all- purpose beeswax cleaning polish {above}in my Easter basket... it really is awesome & I can't wait to abuse it to its fullest this weekend. Give it a try, it will not disappoint.

Here's to a lemony, fresh weekend & hopefully some sun...

It comes as not surprise to me that I love this site... anything that feeds my anal need to organize, label, plan, & chart out life pretty much fits my fancy.

Cook on.

I recently made this poster {above} for our kitchen... {more like, replicated the popular "Keep Calm & Carry On" Poster, & changed it to my liking.:) } I went ahead and made it 8.5" x 11", 300dpi, & uploaded it to my docstoc. If anyone wants a copy for themselves, you can follow the link & download it with nicer print quality or enlarge... I created a darker grey version option, as well. It should look nice with a white matte around it, maybe... free art? :)
If you feel inclined & want to make your own version, I just downloaded the "London tube" font from, which resembled the original font and created a corresponding image up top.
Happy Cooking & Enjoy!

About a year ago, our neighbor across the street was throwing out this shelving unit, so Ry plucked it up for the back deck & I finally got around to finishing it out. I reinforced it with some nails to make it sturdier & used up some {free} old gray paint from another project. {I know, I know, more gray...} I then distressed it back down to the red a bit with a putty knife & painted chalkboard labels. Finally, no more clutter on the back porch. :)

who doesn't love Pixar...

This is one of those incredible graphics that you must see fullsize... {click on link & scroll to the right.} Its a size comparison of all of the Pixar characters and its pretty legit... Nemo is so tiny compared to Sulley... I want this blown up in poster size. I can't help but smile looking at the individual silhouettes, I love each and everyone of them, from Woody to Ellie...

SP10 / SUM10 Inspriation

{I am horrible & have been saving these images for a while... I failed to save their credited source. I sincerely apologize... }

Flirty, fun, feminine, graceful Spring/ Summer inspiration for your presual & editorial needs. I love that its all about layering, detail, & feminine touches this season. Girls can be girls... and own it well.

On another note, hurrray! for getting to finally bust out the white shoes, pants, & frocks to welcome Spring. Yes, I do still follow this rule... shamlessly & proudly. :)

summer frocks.

I go back & forth on my love for H&M, sometimes I love what they are doing, sometimes their solids bore me... but right now they have my heart with these dresses priced from $19.99-$29.99. They just launched a line of eco-friendly clothing... talk about saving the earth, and money! Now if they would only open one in the Big D.... the rumor has been floating around for far too long.
