No way! Shut right up!

It's that time again! How does it get here so quick?!?

Perhaps because I'm so obsessed with other peoples' homes???

Probably (c:

It's the AUGUST edition of How to Make Your Home Your Own! 

And as always, I've got some killer digs for y'all to feast your little eyeballs on. Fo' sho'.

And if you haven't already noticed by that last comment, I am *sadly* lacking in the swagger department.

But I assure you that these lovely ladies are NOT...they have swagger in spades (c:


Anne from Hello Newman's!


Jessamie from Bird and Branch Redesign!


Kelly from Jax does design!

Aw yeeeeah.

Um, I don't know what's come over me today, it's like Vanilla Ice has taken over the blog.

Super scary.

But like I said before, this is going to be a freakin' great design week.

Word to your mother.

Sorry that was the last one, I swear!

Just dreamin' a bit...

So I desperately *NEED* to switch out my bedding, but I have a *really* hard time finding things I like.

I have this addiction to white bedding.

Why is that a problem you ask?

Let me do a little math for ya.

White bedding + two small humans + one small dog = HUGE headache and heartache for Mommy


So after a LOT of looking, I fell in love with this gorgeousness from Dwell Studio:

So then I did a little fantasy shopping...

And a little fantasy planning...

It looks like this:


The only part of this that I *actually* own are the two throw pillows.

Baby steps. (c:

I think I almost have the hubby convinced to take the plunge. *Almost*.

Hope you are planning a fantastic weekend, y'all!

We've run the gamut this week: Sassy, Quirky, Bubbly...

Now Moody.

Sometimes a dark and moody room is just what is called for. Hey, just because it's dark, doesn't mean it's gloomy!

Miles Redd
Nate Berkus

Sometimes, you just gotta give in to the Dark Side.

I *like* it.

Today is a quote day...

Don't you just love Audrey Hepburn???

Sometimes you just need a good quote. And some pink to go with it.

The Lone Star State

Ever heard of Liz Lambert?

Probably not, unless you've stayed at one of the fabulous Texas hotels that she designed.

I had to check out the fab hotel that belonged to this picture on Jetsetter and then I was hooked:

And the Havana has adorable rooms:

And it's right on the Riverwalk in San Antonio...

But that is just *ONE* of her hotels.

Then there is the San Jose in Austin:

Super fun...

She also had a hand in the Saint Cecelia which is probably my favorite:

She is one talented little cowgirl (c:

Anyone going to Texas with me?

Bad to the Bone

Don't you feel just kinda bad-A sometimes???

I mean, really, as a mom, it doesn't happen all that often...but don't you think that you would definitely have some people getting out of your way if you marched down the street in this get-up?

Thank you feels good to be bad (c:

Nothing like some good ol' Alexander McQueen to inspire you to be a rebel without a cause...

Bad to the Bone

Naturally, there are some rooms that have that same swagger...

 This first one is hands down my favorite...
 Red leather tufting.
Red lacquer kitchen has some swag, right? (c:

Or I guess you could just throw this on...those Loubies are *KILLING* me...and then I guess you would feel pretty awesome.

If you are Brooklyn Decker.

So scratch that for me. Go with the first one. (c:

Friday Faves

What the...???

How did it get to be FRIDAY?

I'm missing an entire day!!! 

Sorry about that doesn't happen very often, but every once in a while the stars all align perfectly against me and the magic just doesn't happen (this time it happened to be two grumpy children and a boss having me work until midnight...). 

Frowny face.

But wait!

I've got some stuff to turn that frown upside down!

First and foremost, Bri from Me, You, and a Wiener never ceases to amaze me and she's done it again with her newest project:

Sheer genius, that one.

She used the latest and greatest DIY phenomenon, O'verlays from Danika over at Gorgeous Shiny I'm *itching* to get my hands on something, *ANYTHING* to slap these babies on!!! 

This was found on adorable is this for a proposal???

Guys, take notes (c:

This beaut (via The Zhush, via Martha) was The Candy Bar founder Dylan Lauren's bridal shower...

Candy themed...natch...

Gumball garlands and edible jewelry...color me one happy girl!

I think I would just about have died to go to this party. Good thing I didn't know about it (c:

Miss Sarah from A Dose of Pretty just gave her wingback a "dose of pretty" she said, you can never have too much La Fiorentina...or David Hicks period (c:

And last but not least, J Crew is insisting on tempting me in to their store to spend money.

It's working. This tee really *is* perfect:

And just in case you were completely out of it and don't check Erin's blog obsessively like I do (did I just admit to that out loud???), here's the most amazing beach house to make you even more jealous of her fabulous life:

You have to check out the outdoor eating space with a view of the ocean.

I could just die happy after living there for a day year...(c:

Happy weekend party people!!!
