Cheers to the Weekend & Adios March!

Can you even believe that March is almost over?  Time flies, and when you have a little one it goes by at the speed of light.  We've had a lot of fun this month, and I thought I'd show you some pics I snapped from this month.  Hope everyone has fun plans this weekend.  The weather has been absolute perfection here lately, and Liv LOVES being outside.  Hoping we can take some walks this weekend! 

Isn't that face so sweet that you've got a toothache?  Thought so. 

Isn't this table awesome?  Well, I bought it!  Two of them, actually.  They are my new night stands that go with our new bed and our new upholstered headboard.  I can't believe I finally got a new headboard- I'm more excited about that than the new mattress!  Sad, I know.  I just need to come across the perfect lamps now...
A woman's shopping is never done.

I celebrated 33 years on this earth.  The best thing about my birthday, was sharing it with my precious baby girl.  Being a mother is the most rewarding gift I could ever receive.  (p.s.- didn't spap this photo- it's from Pinterest!)

I bought my very first pair of Sperry's.  I know, life changing.  And teeeeechnically I bought two pair in one shopping trip.  The other pair are pretty major.  Think plaid.  Think gold sparkle.  I know, take a minute to regroup.  I'll wait.

Celebrated St. Patrick- again- this pic is from Pinterest!

I finished my brilliant and most talented friend Liz Schulte's book, Secrets.  The second book, Choices came out this week and I'm so stoked to see what happens to the characters, Olivia & Holden.  Buy all of her work, she's quite amazing.  I'm not just saying that because she's a bestie, she really is great and I'm eager to find out when a major publishing house is going to snatch her up.  Her books read like a great, intense movie.

Ya Dig?

I'm going to try and be better at blogging.  I keep telling myself this mantra and it just seems like there is never enough time to devote like what I want to.  One of the best parts of my day is seeing what some of my very fave blogs have to say.  I'm always anxious to see what neat, and cool ideas these peeps that have become almost like a friend to me have to say, or what inspiration they have to share.  Here are a few of the pins I've pinned lately that I'm really "diggin".

I really love the colors in this print by Amy Jean Porter.

Can you believe this Pink & Orange Union Jack Dresser?  I can't!  So fun!

Yellow has never been my "go to" color- ever.  But I'm coming around to this fun color.  Especially when paired with grey.  I think the yellow island in this white kitchen is so much fun.

Isn't this the sweetest picture?  It just made me smile looking at the sweetness.  My mom orginally pinned it (follow her awesome boards on Pinterest! (

Last but not least- these Pink Gingham Sperry's.  If these don't say spring, if these don't say fun, if these don't say put me on and do a little jig- I don't know what is what.  I want to put them on, dance to Van Morrison, listen to the frogs outside, and drink margaritas.  I love spring!

It's a NEW week!

Happy Monday Ya'll! Hope everyone's weekend was superb! I skirted out of work early Friday to see this-

It was AWE-SOME SAUCE!  I highly reccomend you get to the theater and check it out!  So many great actors- Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci (who was to die for funny), and then there is the beautiful Jennifer Lawrence.  She brought Katniss to life and was really fabuous in this movie.  I'm eager to see it again, and again!  Nerd alert! 

Saturday I was witness to such an amazing show of love- my friend Leslie married her true love Chino.  My heart was so full of joy for the two of them.  They really only had eyes for each other, and it reminded me that in world that sometimes feels full of anger and hurt, there is love.  I'm so happy for them.  What I'm NOT happy about it the fact that when I got home that afternoon I realized that I snapped ZERO pictures of them.  Fail!  That's what I get for trying to take an eight month old to a wedding.  Not fun times.  HaHa.

Yesterday I made breakfast for my dear friend Devin, who just this past week delivered a precious and completely sweet baby boy- Issac.  I know I'm so blessed in my own life, but this weekend- seeing my close friends so happy and so blessed as well made me beyond thankful.  God is so good!

Happy Weekend!

I'm SO looking forward to the weekend!  Tomorrow is St. Patty's Day- we usually have Corned Beef & Cabbage (ew!- not my fave, but my husband is nutty over it) and I'm thinking of making a honey beer bread recipe I found on Pinterest yesterday.  My ideas are always bigger than my follow through, but I'm also wanting to do something fun for dessert- something green!  I'm also meeting up with my Third Floor Girls for lunch at my favorite place in Columbia- Murray's!  I'm really looking forward to some much needed chat time with these girls.  We don't see each other that often, but when we do I always feel like a better person for just having known them.  Love to you all!

Happy Birthday to ME!

Pinned Image

Tomorrow is my birthday, and today has already been such a wonderful day.  A day filled with cake for breakfast, Shakespeare's Pizza for lunch, Starbucks for dessert, Kate Spade Cell Phone Cases, Hello Kitty birthday cards, gift cards, great & fabulous friends showering me with birthday wishes, and it's not even my BIRTHDAY YET!  I'm feeling very loved, and I'm so incredibly blessed.  The biggest most important present was laying in her crib this morning when I left the house, smiling up at me.  I can't wait to see what this 33rd year will bring to me!
