Famous faces

So I am an avid follower of anything about celebs. It is really weird but who cares.

I let my Us Weekly subscription pass so I have been majorly out of the loop. But... let's discuss some of the my highlights.

Maybe it is just me but Jessica Simpson looks like the could blow up any second. I kind of feel like she needs to either pop out triplets or a 75 pound baby. She gives preggers a new meaning.

I am so excited for Reese Witherspoon (like we are BFFs). She looks so happy with baby number three. She could be the cutest person ever.

I think my girl crush may be on Blake Lively. How is it even fair that she is so gorgeous? And she is even dating Mr. Hottie Ryan Reynolds. Such a hard life for the rich and beautiful.

I can't decide how I feel about Miley. Yay or Nay? Her BF is a cutie but she seems a little to crazy to only be 19. I hope we don't have another Lindsay on our hands.

Sandra Bullock is my fav. And look at this little ball of love, Louis. I love a woman that can come out on top.

Who is this beauty, you may ask? Well this little trendsetter is Coco Beckham. Yes the bully baby of David and Posh. I love the pink nails :)

While we are showing bullies, meet Jacques Jolie-Pitt. He may be the fifteenth child at this point.

Yay or nay?

How do we feel about lucite? Yay or nay?

I am torn about this clear blob of furniture. I would love to have a piece but will it mix with my traditional taste in furniture? Have you used any lucite in your decor?

All images from Pinterest

I found some lucite beauties at Overstock that I may nab for the home office. I will keep you updated.

Perfect Pins

I love Pinterest... And if you aren't on there, well then bless your heart. It is amazing!

Here are some pretty pins that I have ah'ed over lately.

This stainless steel bar counter is divine.

Love incorporating fruit with flowers

Love all things chevron right now. Classic yet fun

This slider recipe was in the latest Southern Living. If you don't have this issue, go buy it now... great recipes!

Healthy cheese... enough said!

These key lime fudge bites look amazing! YUM

Perfect example of coffee table styling done right. Now I just need a coffee table and some great books.

Keep going.

You know those sort of weeks months where you just kind of want to give up. Those times where you ask yourself what is the point?

These past few weeks have been just that:

  • We continued to look at other houses but the market is at a lethal low point
  • My paternal grandfather passed away very unexpectedly
  • My running plan for the PRR has been completely thrown out the window along with my motivation
  • I have honestly never been so stressed in my entire life

I could so go on...

But you know I won't... I have an amazing husband, precious furbabies, an unbelievable support system in my family and friends, an amazing job... the list goes on and on. I realized that you just have to keep going. I am so incredibly lucky and selfishly forget that sometimes.

So appreciate all that you have because today is all you have for right now.

I pinky promise that I have some super fun, exciting, uplifting updates next week.

Atlanta Real Estate

Do you randomly look at multi-million dollar real estate to get decorating ideas? No... okay well my hand is raised. 

I came across this beauty and fell in LOVE. This home is for sale by Beacham Realtors here in Atlanta. To be $10 million dollars, it looks completely livable. Move me in :)

Stone fireplace and metal coffee table = divine


Who needs the theater when you have this?

Sleek with the white cabinets and dark wood floors

I love a classic marble bathroom


So pretty it looks fake

Geometric runners

Functional sliding farm doors

Not sure what this is but it is cool

Awesome game room

Spring is in the Air

Miss me? Probably not but here's to wishful thinking. An update on my random thoughts and musings:

1. The pollen count in Atlanta hit 9000 today. All that means to me is itchy eyes, stuffy noses and a major sinus headaches.... yay.

2. A co-worker told me about the new TV show GCB, and I am loving it. Yes it is a little Mean Girls and references a bible verse every three minutes but people need to lighten up. It is a mindless TV show.

3. Speaking of mindless viewing, anyone seen 21 Jump Street? I am similar to a man in I like the Hangover, Super Bad, etc. I have actually heard really good reviews so far so maybe we will pay the $12 a ticket... maybe.

4. Look at these sweet babies. Excuse the iPhone photo but look how big Winnie is!

5. I paid a visit to my favorite, Trader Joe's, and got me some spring blooms. Little did I know, the hubby did the same :) Now our apartment is filled with tons of pretties.

The Crew

It is no secret that I love me some J. Crew but I am not loving their prices lately. Goodness people... help us young-ins look fashionable at a wallet friendly price. That doesn't seem like a lot to ask.

One thing I am loving about them right now is their serious coupon sending and the factory site. It is available every weekend with some killer items.

Now on to what I am eying if I could just buy whatever I wanted :)

This one is not from the Crew but I need a new cover up. If only this bod came with it. Here's to enjoying food way too much.

Doggie Day

Saturday was a day full of all things dog. Winston turned two so we celebrated with some excursions around town. After a very long week, a weekend at home was a nice change.

We started the day off at the local dog-friendly establishment, Nancy G's

They had their drinks and we had ours

Next up was our favorite place in Atlanta, Chastain Park

It wasn't packed so we let the kiddies roam free

Look at the little chunker now... Belly and all.

She is somewhat slower :)

And... we got a dog birthday cake from Wolfgang Bakery

Happy 2nd Birthday Winston!

Of course Mom and Dad had to celebrate as well
