They're like long lost twin sisters.
All kidding aside, I do wish Bret Michaels a speedy recovery. I still remember my first copy of Poison's Every Rose has it's Thorn in 3rd grade. Too bad mom didn't check the liner notes in the cassette case for all the pics of naked groupies. Lord it's amazing I'm as normal as I am.
Did you remember to catch The Hills last night? Poor Heidi, her mom should have never let her leave little Crested Butte. I hope her face settles soon - she scared me when she cried. Poor poor Heidi.

I like your hair I like your necklaces I like your easy going grey tank I like your perfect shades I like your corona and could probably have one at this moment I like your cute bag I like your happy smiling face with your hand on the hip just so causally I like your style.
Pendant Lighting. Streamlined appliances. Crab painting. (They didn't call me crabby Abby for nothing). Although I personally have to have a window above my sink. It is a must. Luckily for our kitchen, that is already taken care of.
Here the counter tops are doing it for me. And the cabinets. This is probably the closest image to our L shaped galley kitchen - stopping at the fridge. No cute breakfast nook for us.
But at the moment I am really leaning towards open shelves. We have all coordinating dinnerware now and it would make things feel much more open. Ina likes it, so it must be the cool thing to do - that is how I can sell it to the hubs.
Another example - Lauren at Pure Style Home did open shelves for her kitchen. How simply perfect is this? And I could even do our out dated white fridge in chalkboard paint....ohhh meee.
Just so you know what we are working with - here are some pics of our kitchen. Granted this were taken soon after we just moved in almost 3 years ago so it's a bit more charming now, but you will get the jest of it all. All I can hope for is some after pics to put up soon...Very soon.

Kristina at Lovely Morning recently shared her lovely and real birth story. Towards the end I was holding my heart feeling her experience and shocking myself with the thoughts that were rushing through my head.
Lately all I think about is how this time last year all I was thinking about was marrying the fiance and now I am consumed with the thoughts of starting a family and having a little one soon in our future.
Part of me wants these coming days and months to stand still. To keep the little moments with the husband and our friends and family from flying by with the blink of an eye. To enjoy ourselves and revel in our wonderful love and luckiness of finding each other and knowing how special our love truly is. But to truly know that love and to continue to bond in our marriage will take on so much more to both of us once we start our expanding family. I pray and hope everyday that we are as lucky as so many of our friends and family and can experience the love of being parents.
I truly can not wait.

Coachella was this past weekend and I love to check out what the stars wore while attempting to blend into the crowds of music lovers. Some blend better than others, that is for sure. A few of my favs -
Busy Phillips and Scott Speedman (cute couple alert). I love her simple easy eyelet dress.
Kate Bosworth in a hot turquoise tie-dyed number. Perfection minus the collar bone protruding. ouch.
My girl Cat from SYTYCD in a fun embroidered romper.
Camilla Belle in an easy tunic dress and boots. She is so darn pretty!

So I started this post with "What if" because the following will likely NOT end up in my closet this summer, but a girl can DREAM. Soo here goes.

I would be so cute in Cabo rocking these hot numbers...

Today one of my oldest friends, college roommie, bridesmaid, knew each other before braces, etc is coming to town with her sweet new baby girl. Annaleigh Caroline Violette is our first baby girl to the group (Patrick and Ethan preceed her) and I seriously can't wait to snuggle up to this one. We have had 2 previous dates planned but have had to be rescheduled due to sickness on my part (first time I was too hungover to hold a baby and second I was sick with a cold). I am so excited!

Could this be my soon to be doppelganger? I must say, there is definitely something in the water! Be careful who you drink after these days!
hehe APRIL FOOLS DAY my friends :)
so far I've not been sipping, but in due time. Almost all my friends are preggers or have had a baboos recently. I feel more out of the cool kids club than ever. Whaa for me.
But honestly, isn't Kelly Kapowski the cutest preggers ever? Look at that hair, good lord.
