If Lenny Kravitz just busted up in your choir group while ya'll were singing his song "Fly Away" on a street in New Orleans? Amazing. gave me face chills.

Congrats to the Crandells!

My close and longtime friend (and Cabo trip coordinator) found out today their bundle of joy arriving in October is of the pink variety. What a darling dark curly haired, year-round tanned, bright eyed beauty she will be!
It is only fitting she have a girl, she will fit right in for our girls trip next week! What a special time and how happy I am for them!

Happy Weekend People

Where I hope to be spending the majority of my Satur-day. Ahhhh. Gotta keep my tan up before CABO!!!

Come to Mama...

Looks like my search has ended. These 2 are being picked up by my mom's wonderful cousin (my second cousin) - family will really do anything for you - and I will get them from him tomorrow. He went to the guy's house (just lives around the corner), which is about 45 minutes away from me, and took these pictures, emailed them to me and is purchasing them for me so I won't miss the deal of a lifetime!

Oh Craiglist, don't fail me now.

I will be reupholstering (of course) in something fun and festive, as well as something to stand the test of time. And maybe match the pillows I already have (hopefully), but it's not a deal breaker. Any thoughts, suggestions? Will have to look back in my old Domino's/Blueprint's/House Beautiful for some major inspiration.

Saturday morning I will be going to look for fabric - hope I can find something worth my while at my trusty $3/yard warehouse.

Ok, here they are!!! Man were they worth the wait!

I Like Your Style.

These posts have typically been in regards to snazzy outfits worn by the famous. I'm switching it up today from clothes to decor. I am head over heels digging this.

Carrie Bradshaw & Big's coffee table in their new home on SATC2. I haven't seen the film yet, but this picture screams "You Can Do It" at me every time I run across it in the blog world.

My coffee table is similar in size and shape, but it has a piece of glass placed over the opening. I am thinking I am going to take the glass out it and see what happens... what do you think? Maybe a before and after later this week!

the 30 club ain't so bad.

We went down to the beach with friends I have known for almost half my life..and the love of my life. I didn't burn my face for the first time in 30 years. That in itself was the biggest feat of the weekend.

We helped ourselves to the neighbors hydrandea blooms.

Whoa 30!

Late night beach runs. (Elegance is learned, my friend)

Candles were saved for the rest of these bitches....

Thankfully there were only 2 to blow out. The Newport tank is for sale. Leave me a comment if you would like to take a bid. Can you say vintage classic??

The boys had a 4 hour bocce game. The Crandells brought their flippers.

Ethan came to celebrate and eat some sand.

i have seriously always wanted to do this. check!

Love these people - we had a great time as always!!!

All the parts equal more than the sum...

Have been somewhat distracted since the return from a fabulous time at the beach. The husband surprised me for my birthday and our ride down to the beach last week with the new Band of Horses CD. It is perfect and I can't get enough.

They were recently on Dave Letterman promoting the album, and this is one of my new favorites.

I love when bands provide videos of how they put an album together. It gives such a cool background to them and their process.
