Country Living Fair Bound!

Happy Friday, friends... it's been a busy week and I'm headed to the fair today -- the Country Living Fair, that is!  I'm so excited to get some inspiration and hopefully get a head start on some holiday shopping!  Last year I scored quite a few unique things so I have high hopes for this year as well. I've made some more progress on my porch, so hopefully will be ready to share that soon.  I've taken the pressure off though because I know the … [Read more...]

What I’m Reading, Loving, and Working On…(and a Winner!)

Thank you to those that entered my Country Living Fair giveaway!  I've put the lucky winner at the bottom of this post... October is already flying by, isn't it?  I feel like I'm already running from one thing to another, don't you?  I have to say, though, October is one of my favorite months of the year with so many festive events, the gorgeous shift to fall weather and that teensy window of time to just enjoy before the madness of the … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Beach Trip Edition

Hi friends!  I hope you've had an amazing week!  Our schools have been on Fall Break all week, so I took advantage and scooted to the beach with my BFF for some R&R.  I was pretty run down from work and that pesky cold-turned-cough, so it was a great time to catch up on my sleep and totally veg out in a beach chair for a few days!  We totally lucked out on the weather -- it was sunny and breezy every day!  Total win... This week's Five on … [Read more...]

Dining Room Update

Monday, already?  I actually had a pretty low key weekend and am feeling on the downside of my head cold so fingers crossed that it's behind me!  I did get a few things done around the house and that's always a good feeling. :) One of the things on my list was to put my dining room "back together."  I may not have shared that last May my parents loaded up our family piano and drove it to Austin for my older sister, who is experiencing a … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Fall Inspiration Edition

I'm back!  Whew... I think it's a full moon??  Either way, I'm ready for the weekend to try to kick a bad head cold and make some progress in my booth and my house for fall.  In some idle BRAIN DEAD moments, I've pinned a few fall inspiration ideas that have got me longing for a crisp autumn day. :)  So today's Five on Friday will share a few faves! 1.  The new fall collection at Lindsay Letters... I've ordered prints from her several times … [Read more...]

Life Lately…

Friends!!  It's been FOREVER since I posted!  This weekend was my first to truly catch my breath in quite a few weeks and I am so happy to be back and bringing you up to speed on life lately.  It's been a whirlwind!  But yesterday I took in some of the ceremonies and TV shows reflecting on September 11th... it's hard to believe that 15 years have passed since that terrible day.  And I still heard stories I have never heard before -- of individual … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Good Friday morning, friends.  First of all, I am once again heartbroken by a terrorist massacre... how many of these must we see?  My thoughts and prayers are with the people of France today.  I can't even begin to comment further, but I know you share my grief over this latest attack. I intended to finish up my porch this week among other things, but alas Legacy projects and meetings took precedence.  There is soooo much cooking right now to … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Wednesday

Howdy!  I hope you all had great Fourth of July weekend!  I did a little bit of Legacy work and a whole lotta relaxing poolside with the hubs.  I even managed to sleep in a bit!  #holidayweekendforthewin Today I thought I'd share a little of this 'n that from the last several days.  First of all, my BFF, my Girl, and I took in Emily Giffin's launch party for her new book First Comes Love.  I'm a huge fan of her stories and she is so funny and … [Read more...]
