Every single time.

This girl can just not get it wrong. Every single time I see her I love her even more. Easy chambray shirt dress. Easy brown boots. Classic touches of jewelry and the perfect bag. Just love it all.

thank you baby jesus...

Baily from Peppermint Bliss (who in my opinion, is the coolest chick around) made the cutest Preggers announcment on her blog yesterday. And today she shared this video and all I can say is "thank you baby jesus." I needed something like this in my life today. Cracking up!

Of course everyone who knows me knows I am looking forward to being one of those SMUG bi*ches. But this does help lighten the mood just a little bit.

pleasantries... by abbyarcher featuring dot jewelry

This weather (i.e. rain, snow, sleet, clouds) is to blame for my recent online purchasing rampage.
For example, a new purse in a fun yellow color for spring / summer.  Reebok toners i'm so pumped to try out. A cute pink skirt from Lands End Canvas - I have been dying to buy some of their cute pieces, hope I love them -also got a new pair of jeans & cute moccasins (40% off sale items helped the check card)!

Lastly, Stella & Dot, oh how I love thee. You will save my spring / summer wardrobe. ahhh.

shameless plug for my friend Heather - If you are new to Stella & Dot, please go to her site and check it out. And buy til your jewelry box runneth over!

If it was up to me...

So if I was to need a bridesmaid dress for a wedding in July at the beach and the bride was wanting navy dresses I would pick this one.

And throw in some accessories... ETSY, of course.

 Earrings or Necklace...whichever you prefer...Silver or Gold will be perfect...

Waht do you think Jennifer?
I think so!

Hi friends.
I will blog tonight.  I can make every excuse in the book but I have just been plain avoiding you. Taking a break I suppose. Living my life. At the moment I wish I was there, in the bed, with the covers pulled high up under my chin, sleeping like a baby. But instead I am working and gyming and junior leaguing and housing and all that other stuff that our lives involve.  But I am coming back, I swear!

In keeping with my yearning for warmer temps and sand over snow - check out this beauty. Nothing like a little coral and turquoise to make me feel the warmth.

Found via High Gloss Magazine - Coming February 1, 2011 - but you can subscribe via email now. They are not disappointing. That is for sure. Just what this snow bunny needed to help her see the light.

sand..sun...where are you?

next year i think me and the hubs might need to take a january/february holiday somewhere warm. not sure if i'm going to make it to summer to get to the ocean.  It snowed and iced here and snowed all over North Carolina.  AT least 4 more months til we feel some warmth.

Miss Olivia doesn't have to worry about it. Lucky girl.

people watching.

who doesn't love The Sartorialist. If you read blogs you read his. He recently posted this video and I had to share. It truly captures his work and the romantics of it all. I like to wait a few weeks and then go to see lots of posts at once. It bums me out when I get back to where I was last.

Go and visit his blog. It's always fun to people watch.

The Bravermans

In keeping with my favorite tv shows, tonight I caught up with one of my favs - Parenthood. I realized the Bravermans have a lovely bedroom.

and living room/kitchen combo.

I love this show! It always makes me tear up.

Our mailbox has been filled since yesterday with catelogs and we got the new West Elm. For the guest room I need a duvet. And I love either -


Reminder the walls are yellow and the furniture is white for the most part...I am really leaning towards the grey stripe. and dress it up with throw pillows. SO PERFECT.
