We're Moving!

Not literally, just the blog!

The time has come to move our family blog on to bigger and better things with our very own ".com". from now on we will be posting at the following address:

For those of you that were receiving notification e-mails of new posts, and following via e-mail, you can now do so more easily at the new web address.

Thanks to everyone who has been reading our blog for the past 4 years, and I hope you enjoy the new layout and more content!

Arty Ring

It's always so exciting to come home and find a brown box at the front door, especially when that box contains an Arty Ring. I have lusted over this YSL ring for quite some time, and when I received my Saks gift card, I knew exactly where it was going! This will be a fun ring to play around with this summer, and I can't wait to mix it up with some of my Grandmother's turquoise jewelry.

HomeGoods Hoarding

I am totally guilty of it. I love HomeGoods, so much that I am there on a weekly basis and keep track of when shipment trucks arrive. There is an art to discount shopping, especially at HomeGoods, where they tend to only receive one or two pieces of any particular item. I have scored almost all of the art and accessories in our home (as well as my clients) from HomeGoods. You would be surprised to see how many contemporary and even mid-century modern things they receive. I get such a thrill in finding unique items that are currently for sale at full retail in mass market stores. These lacquered boxes were something I have seen before at HomeGoods but neglected to pick up. This time around I purchased all three sizes, and so far have found a spot for two of them in our upstairs hallway.

The frames are also from HomeGoods ;o)

Spring Sneak Peek

This is not a fashion post, sorry! We had such a fun weekend, Tim had the weekend off, the weather was beautiful and we had family in town. So we spent a day at the new Aquatics Center with some friends, and also at our very own pool in Talega. Luckily, Adella remembered a lot of what she was taught in swim lessons and is quite comfortable in the water. Nolan is also a big fan of swimming, and happily chased and swam after all the big kids.

Remember when I used to contribute when they first launched? Well, I'm back!! I really enjoy writing for Alex & Chelsea (the owners) and love taking on the challenge of finding things that are cute and affordable for their readers. I will be submitting on a regular basis the first Tuesday of every month.

Check out my post I did for on kids spring fashion here:

Date Night Part Duex

I know, I know, I said we "rarely" have date nights. It just happened to work out again this past weekend. We met some friends for dinner and then went to a concert sans kids! We saw the Hawaiian band HAPA, where we brought down the average age in attendance to a whopping 57! It was fun though, and it brings back memories of our many trips to Hawaii, and of course our wedding. I also saw it as an opportunity to wear another fun ensemble, and seriously stood out in the crowd. It was almost humorous, as just about everyone was sporting an aloha shirt c/o Tommy Bahama or the ABC store. Then there was me, in sparkly shoes and a skirt that is probably too tight. I got a few strange looks, nothing new, but then there was this one elderly lady who in the line at the bathroom gasped and said "MY, that is a FABULOUS outfit!". I respectfully thanked her and left the bathroom with a satisfied smile on my face, as the other ladies rolled their eyes. Oh well, can't please 'em all!

Nordstrom Fun

Our kids are so chic.

Sometimes the mall is the best place to let the kids run around and play. We visit the pet shop, the Disney store, check out the fountains... and try on hats at Nordstrom. Not quite sure if the sales associates appreciated my form of entertainment. But I did purchase a couple of cover-ups for the summer, so hopefully that made up for it.

Casual Client Meeting

One of the best perks about taking on clients for interior design, is that I get to dip into my closet and pull something other than a lululemon jacket! Today I christened one of my most favorite and fun pair of pumps. They also happen to be the perfect "Tangerine Tango", Pantone's 2012 color of the year!
