Birthday List

Jon has been asking me for weeks what I want for my birthday.  It's three weeks from this coming Saturday, but apparently he wants to be on top of his game.  I told him that I didn't want anything because we're going to a concert (Joe Purdy) two days before my b'day and then we're spending the weekend at the beach with friends.  Both of those sound like good enough presents to me!  

He wasn't having it though.  So I started to build a b'day wish list.  I'm still not sure what I want to request off of it, if anything (I'm slightly indecisive), but here are a few things that I'm really diggin' at the moment... 


1. West Elm jute herringbone rug- I've mentioned rugs in many of my posts, and I still want a new one.  Could this be the one?  
2. "Money Can't Buy Happiness" wooden sign- Black and white wooden signs.  Love them.  The fun quote makes it even better. 
3. CB2 Acrylic tray-Because I love acrylic and one can never have too many trays.
4. Espresso and chrome console table-Traditional wood meets modern chrome.  The perfect pair.  I may hold off on this one until we move though to make sure there's a space for it in our new home.
5. Decorate: 1,000 Design Ideas for Every Room in Your Home book-I'm trying to build my coffee table book collection and this is a definite buy.
6. Anthropologie Sky drop earrings- Aren't these beautiful?  
7. Gold anchor necklace-A nod to Jon, to our wedding and to the place we love...the beach!  The perfect summer accessory!

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right? Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect. I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here . Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here . The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and

Food for Thought

I apologize for my absence these last few days. I started a new job last week as a event planner consultant for the local paper and have been quite busy. Nevertheless, I'm back now. First I'd like to share a yummy recipe I discovered last week. In case you don't know, I am not a big veggie lover. So when I find a good recipe that has veggies in it, I get really excited. Such was the case last week. My hubby and I buy zucchini on almost every grocery visit. However, the only thing we usually put it in is a stir fry recipe we like to make. This is good for me because the zucchini taste is masked by peppers, teriyaki sauce and chicken. I can eat it. Well last Wednesday I wasn't in the mood for stir fry, but I really needed to use my zucchini before it went bad. So I went on a search for a good zucchini recipe. And what should I stumble upon, but zucchini chips. And they were very good! Here is the recipe. Ingredients" 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs 1/4
