Cute looks for the little lady

I just felt like this would be a fun post.  I know I am not keeping up with this little blog but with the holidays right around the corner I thought a post about some cute looks would be fun.  Most of these items are on clearance which I love.  And most importantly, I get the stamp of approval from my little lady.  She has become quite particular just recently so I have to go through her before I buy.  I guess I can't complain.  She gave me seven years and is just now forming her own style.  Have to say though she has good taste.  I love all of these items.

Cargo pants, Mini Boden

Getting ready!!!

Bring on Fall

Happy Friday.  We are enjoying a cloudy morning and my little one has a day off from school so I thought we would start decorating the house for fall.

I love these pictures from BHG for inspiration.

Bringing in some twine, berries, white pumpkins, burlap, and plaid and I am set.

Have a great weekend.

Great Tones and Textures

I love this room featured in Atlanta Home and Lifestyle Magazine, you can visit their site here.

I love the wood tones, the dark wing back chairs and the white walls.  

It's a bit masculine right now, but if you added a few vases of flowers and a colorful throw it would be just enough to soften it up a bit.

I love finding interior inspiration to model my home after.

It's Fall And I Am Ready For A New Outdoor Space

I just watched the show HGTV'd with Genevieve Gorder where she did an outdoor room for a couple in Texas.  I fell in love with the space and have decided to get started on putting together some ideas.  

Hanging Lantern - World Market 

Wood Carved Table - World Market

Sectional - Pottery Barn

Hand Made Pouf from Ikea floor rugs via

Side Table/Stool - World Market

Pendant Light - West Elm

Floor Pillow - Pier One

Outdoor curtains - Potterybarn

Throw Pillows

sayitwithpillows - etsy
vintage tins -etsy

I can't wait.  We love our home, but feel the need for an extra room, especially as our daughter gets older.  We are definitely not moving any time soon and the idea of being able to create another living space is very exciting to me.  

I'm off for a sugary sweet concoction to celebrate my birthday,

Have a great day!!!

Favorite color combination

Happy Monday....

I came across this cute manicure on and thought it was worth sharing.  I haven't had a manicure or have even polished my nails, well, in probably seven years.  Since my daughter came along it just didn't seem worth the time, but I saw this and thought it might be worth a try.

I am going on vacation at the end of this week and I might need to have pretty nails.  I might just try it on my toes too!!

I especially love the color combination but you can do it with any colors.

Check out Trina's blog at for a complete tutorial and just to check out her cute blog.

Just poppin in to say hello

Wow.  The summer has flown by.  It's been a while since I have posted and today I just felt like writing a bit.

Things I am thinking about...

Loving my daughters performance at the end of dance camp...
Thinking about my upcoming long weekend in my most beloved spot, Hilton Head Island...
Wishing some fairy would come in and clean my windows, floors and make dinner for a week....
Am thankful for the time that I got to spend with my daughter this summer, but wishing the time would SLOW down.....
Missing my mom, she visited for a week and I haven't been the same since .....
Shhhh, I am secretly ready for fall, especially pumpkin foods.....
My refrigerator/freezer has an odd odor (that is not food related), think it's time to just get a new one.....
Yummy mexican food sounds great for dinner, takeout.....
I am over big elaborate birthday parties....isn't simpler better
I vow to not let Pinterest get me down....

An American Girl in Paris

After lots of time planning, shopping, and preparing we had my daughters 7th birthday party this past weekend.

It turned out just as we had planned.

She wanted an American Girl party.  Simple and sweet enough but then we decided to add to the concept by creating a Paris backdrop to the party.  All of the girls brought their favorite dolls, we had crafts, dancing, "tea", and cake.  It was very sweet!

For party favors the girls were able to "shop" at the candy store and take home a wrapped eiffel tower cookie, they also got to take home their craft which is a wooden ornament that they decorated.  One last gift was a wooden frame that they can decorate and put a picture of themselves with their dolls.  

Most of the decorations were hand made.  The flowers were made out of tissue paper, each girl also received a paper American Girl bracelet, the banner was bought through Etsy, and all of the goodies were made by me. 

My good friend Karrah photographed the party so I can't wait to share some of those pictures.
