A nice, tidy list

I have been away for so long! I am in North Carolina at my parent's house! My father made his famous Cheerwine slushies, my brother got the week off too, and my mother has adorned the house with hydrangea arrangements! All seems right with the world! Since it has been so long, I thought I'd entertain you with a little bulleted list of things I've been up to:
*I saw Sex and the City 2 before I left. The storyline wasn't quite as good as the orignial, but I didn't expect it to be. The fashion was just as fab as always, but this time the girls' style was very bohemian, lots of flowy dresses and headscarves. I will always have a special place in my heart for the SATC ladies and I don't care what any critics have to say!
*One of my best friends, and future bridesmaid, KMW (we share initials! love that!) is coming to stay with us for the weekend. We are going to go out and have an amazing time, just like in college! What should I wear??
*My mother and I hit the shops! We went to Banana Republic, Talbots, White House Black Market, Ann Taylor, Francesca's, Rebecca & Co., and of course, Lilly. I've picked up some really cute pieces that are perfect for the scorching summer that I hear is coming to Texas! And I finally got a pair of white pants, thank goodness! And a couple pairs of Lilly shorts!
*I've become even more obsessed with designing! I can't wait to get my grabby little hands into Hobby Lobby and Homegoods these days. I'm loving the picture that people have been putting up on their blogs of Kate and Andy Spade's guest bathroom, decorated in green, white, and black, with green zebra wallpaper! What a wonderful surprise for your guests!
*Lastly, I've decided that "A woman I absolutely admire" will become a weekly feature. I have been so inspired lately with all the wonderful women out there doing amazing things. In the coming weeks, look for some women who have impaced our lives in big and small ways!
Hope your Memorial Day was great, and you got a chance to remember the reason we all get a 3-day weekend. Because, as they say, freedom isn't free! I'm going to spend all this week with my family and see you guys on Sunday!


  1. Sounds like a fabulous time at home!

  2. So glad you're back. I think A woman I absolutely admire is a GREAT idea for a weekly post - I can't wait to read more :)
