Five Things Friday - Part 1

I think I'm going to try a new post on Fridays called "Five Things." I've seen a similar idea out there in the blog world, and I really like it.  Here's how it works: each Friday I'm going to bring you five things I really like - it could be a place, a product, a design, an idea, you name it.  I'll pick my top 5 for the week and post on them every Friday.  Now all of my random finds can have their own place :)  So here goes...Five Things-Part 1...

1. Siberian Knights by OPI.  This is my new favorite fall nail polish.  I love the dark color and the hint of purple make me especially happy.  I snatched this baby up while I was shopping at Publix.  Yes, you read that right.  Publix, the grocery store.  Who knew they sold OPI polish?  Not me.  It was a great surprise! 

2.  I'm slightly obsessed with this office.  I decided a long time ago that I would have black and white striped curtains somewhere in my next home.  This just strengthens that decision.  This is the office at Cameo, a Fashion PR firm in NYC.  It was featured in the latest issue of Adore Home magazine, and there's so much about it to love.  Also, the PR firm's president is named Malorie.  Shout out!

3.  I've been lusting over these pillows ever since I first laid eyes on them.  They were for sale on Etsy, but last I checked they were sold out (how could they not be?).  But I think this could be a cool DIY project...once I learn how to sew a pillow with piping.  The chevron front and velvet back make the perfect pillow team.

4. This photo gallery and table styling is gorgeous.  I would love to have something like this in my home.  This was designed by the Kerrisdale Design Inc., an interior design firm in British Columbia.  Glamorous. 

5.  New York City makes me so happy, and I want to go visit again.  Jon has never been before, and I think it's high time he sees why I love it so.  Here are some eateries I'd like to try out on my next visit (also featured in Adore Home).


Happy Friday to you guys!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

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

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
