My Bathroom Must Haves

Plush white towels-I told you I had a fascination for white things...especially when it comes to sheets and towels. Nothing gives off a clean, spa-like look better than white, right?


Bath & Body Works Lavender Vanilla Aromatherapy Lotion-This scent is one of my all-time favorites and is perfect for putting on just before bed for a nice restful sleep.



Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelettes-For those of you who share my hatred for having to wash your face and remove your eye makeup every night before bed, these are for you. They have a wonderful scent and are a quick, refreshing remedy to a clean face.

Cottonelle toilet paper-I know everyone has their favorites, but Cottonnelle is number one in my book. We bought Charmin for awhile because that's Jon's favorite. And while it was nice and thick, it ran out WAY too quickly. Cottonelle has a great thickness, lasts a long time and boasts beauitful textured lines on it as opposed to the tacky quilted pattern featured on so many of its competitors. Yes, I can admit that this fact was one of the reasons I first bought Cottonelle. If the other manufacturers only knew. Hey, I believe even toilet paper should have a nice design to it. :)


Glass bottles- It's a shame to create a beautifully put together bathroom only to have it ruined by the hideousness of a generic mouthwash (or any other personal care) bottle. The solution: a sleek, sculpted glass bottle. The one I have looks similar to the one below from Crate&Barrel, but I got it from HomeGoods for $8. It's a perfect solution for the things you need access to often but that aren't very becoming. And the silicon stoppers keep the products fresh and easy to get to.

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :) Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print. A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos. An antique baby basket helped house the gifts. The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee. The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar.  And of course no shower is comp

Table Decorating Contest

Jon and I are leaving to spend a long weekend in San Antonio with his parents and his brother (who will be town from Arizona).  But before we go, I wanted to leave you with some pictures from the Officer Spouses Club Table Decorating Contest that was held last night. I called Jon on my way home from base, and he immediately asked "How was the contest?" to which I responded "Victorious." The 32nd FTS, our squadron, took first place! The theme was Silver Screen so we decided to focus on famous quotes from each movie genre. Each place setting featured a different movie. We had a "drive-in" for our center piece where clips of the famous quotes were shown. Welcome to the Jayhawk Drive-In! Wizard of Oz place setting. The glass had a button you could turn on to make the water swirl and look like a tornado inside. Also notice the witch's feet sticking out from under the plate :) A close-up of the yellow brick road I painted. Silence of the Lambs pl

DIY with Branches

Fall is in the air and that means that many empty branches will soon be too!  Might as well put them to work in jazzing up your decor.  You know what they say...when life gives you branches, make things out of them!  Okay, maybe that's not how it goes, but it's what I'm going to do.  If you'd like to join me, read the DIY projects below. Branch Coffee Table If you're in the market for a contemporary coffee table, but don't want to dish out hundreds (sometimes thousands) of dollars, this is the solution for you.  It's a relatively easy DIY project with room changing results. What you need: 1.  A thick branch (or branches depending on the look and size you want).  Maybe you can help a neighbor cut down a tree.  Then it'll be a win win.  They get the help they need, and you get a new coffee table. 2.  A piece of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) wood for the base of the table.  Cut to the appropriate size for your limbs-making sure the limbs don't stic
