Memorial Day

This past weekend we jetted off to the lake before a little R & R before things get crazy. Next weekend is not only the big B-Day, but I will also be packing for a week away from home. Here's to my sanity these next few days!

Party time

With my largest event of the year in a few short days, all I can think about are events. The downfall of Pinterest are all the amazing party ideas. I love a well done party!

Here are a few of my favorite inspirations:

Favorite Month Ever!

June is almost here and it is my favorite month ever! Why? Well it is not only this chica's birthday but my hubby's big day as well! I love that we have the same birthday month (however he gets 25 days; I barely get 24 hours).

As much as I love planning his birthday celebrations, I don't mind getting a few gifts myself. Hey I have been working my butt off these past few weeks!

Here are a few things I wouldn't hate to get:
1. I love a good statement necklace and the white goes with everything 
2. Rifle Paper has the best designs (story: the hubs questioned my Mother's Day gift to myself... a new phone cover from Rifle Paper Co.; I told him the pups picked it out... that got an eye roll) 
3. This Madewell shift is great for the hot Southern summer ahead

4. I need some black wedges BAD! I thought these were cute and a Piperlime coupon just landed in my mail... coincidence, I think not!
5. I think my other husband should get some QT time this holiday season. I mean it would only be proper to pay my respects since he was so kind to add an Atlanta stop to his fall tour. I may or may not be pondering making the show solo... only to relive my middle school N'Sync years.
6. I love a good scarf and this one is neon. Two for one!

We have been in our house a year now and are still adding finishing touches. Small things, like curtains, paintings, pillows and such.

Here are a few recent additions:

Chimichangas & Guacamole

For one of my favorite holidays (Cinco de Mayo), we decided to stay in and not fight the crazies.

  • Divide the crockpot mixture among your desired number of tortillas; top with cheese

  • Coat with cooking spray.

Luxury Link

If you know me you know I love traveling. I love visiting both old and new places.

Much to my calendar and wallet's demise I got an email from Luxury Link last week. They are offering $50 off any package right now. (We used Luxury Link for our anniversary trip last year).

I occasionally catch myself looking at their latest offers and dreaming. Here are a few favorites (of course with a wishful budget):


-Disclaimer: Luxury Link did not sponsor this post (that would be awesome though); I just love traveling and their amazing site :)
