The deets...

My B-day recap:

 Mamasita, 3 sisters, & birthday girl...
Pretty dessert, the prettiest present *ever* from my lovely sisters and mama (Does Kate know how to dress a present or what???), pretty shopping, pretty girls
The birthday outfit, complete with my pleated skirt (yes, I found one!) and my son, of course he is in the picture...(c:
(Ignore my hair, our a/c went out that day and it was HUMID...yuck)

We ate, we laughed, we ate, we shopped, we had a ton of fun and it couldn't have been more perfect!

And I'm pretty sure that I will have reading material for the rest of the summer because I got this book from the hubby and three of my Coralie Bickford-Smith books....THRILLED, I say!!!

Speaking of thrilled...

Congrats to Alicia from Shaken, Not Blurred! for being the birthday giveaway winner!

 She is just the sweetest gal and she is on the tail end of her pregnancy, this girl definitely deserves presents!!! (c:

I've been feeling like the luckiest 30 year-old on the planet...how about you, how was Memorial Day???

Partied out...

Fabulous weekend, great dirty thirty B-day, Fun with family and friends...POOPED.

And could I really resist the chance to post a picture of the fabulous Audrey? I must admit, I don't get upset when people call me Audrey because I know they are *totally* thinking of me as a Hepburn...

I should be sleeping here...anyone else seen this insane room by Amanda Nisbet? Julie from Haute Khuuture posted the most amazing shots of this kickin' boudoir...I'm obsessed with that wallpaper/wood paneling combo...

Happy Monday, y'all and a special shout out to those who have and continue to serve our country

THANK YOU and Happy Memorial Day!!!


I'm going to let the GIVEAWAY for this little beauty run through today, so there is still time to enter (if you dare):

And hold your darn horses...what is a birthday without a GIFT???


I'm going to giveaway a fun little pressie from Pottery Barn, and I'm not gonna lie, I kinda want to keep this little pretty:

Prince of Darkness take a turn...

Have you seen Ozzy Osbourne's house???

Bravo, Sharon for getting the Prince of Darkness to agree to let Martyn Lawrence Bullard design the castle because it is absolutely *LOVELY*...

...and that is a word that I'm pretty sure I NEVER thought I would use in the same sentence with the Prince of Darkness...

Miracles do happen, people!

Yep, I stared stupidly at the computer for a good while trying to get the fact that Ozzy lives in this house through my head...

I'm still staring, but now it's just with envy (c:

A special thanks to Macarena at Chic & Posh who pointed out this AMAZEBALLS home!!! She's got even more pics of this ridiculously cool home there...(c:

April Showers...now May flowers (c:

Ah, flowers.

They make a room every time...they can totally take a room from blah to beautiful in one fell swoop...and they can always put a smile on my face (*tap, tap* Hubby, are you listening???)!

Pretty in Pink

Not only is that the name of one of my favorite 80's movies (Molly Ringwald, I *love* you...anyone else absolutely adore Sixteen Candles???)...but I just can't seem to get enough of this bright rosy hue...

These are by no means new pictures, but they have the most gorgeous
