Doesn't that make you giggle? It does if you are 40 something and feeling super old with a graduating senior in high school ... sniff sniff.
I do not like to cook. I have mentioned that many times. I do however like to eat ... so if I don't want to spend way to much on restaurants and take out I need to make what I like to eat. That at least makes it easier to prepare.
Or that is the theory.
I read quite a few blogs along with my morning dose of usweekly.com every single day. It's my "I am done with the morning of Mom and it's time to do something for me". You can find me mid morning with a cup of coffee sitting at the computer.
Thursday morning I woke up excited about the day ... but having no idea how epic it would be. Three of us had set aside the day and made late flights to be able to enjoy the city and take in some serious shopping. And at the end of the day well after midnight when my head hit the pillow I remember thinking ... was this day real?
There is a lot going on in California this week ... the Oscar's are in full prep mode for Sunday (beyond excited!) and Palm Springs is a buzz with Modernism Week's Show House. All the vintage fashion and the modern elements are so intriguing to me. It's something straight out of a Slim Aaron's photo. And I absolutely love Slim Aaron!
Today is Ash Wednesday ... the first day of Lent. As a child my mother and my Catholic upbringing mandated this time to give something up (which I never understood) and to go without meat on Friday. My meat loathing self always adored this part. It was grilled cheese, fish or pasta all day! Yummy!!
I was perusing my posts yesterday and realized I had not shared this amazing post with you! It is perfect for organizing kids and their sea of paper that comes home from school! I am currently dabbling in the thought of going paperless ... but until then I am still using this system I put into place in August!
Today the littles are home under the threat of winter weather. For Boston that means another ridic amount of snow, and in Atlanta that usually means ice, sleet and the possibility of the smallest amount of snow ever shutting the entire city down!
Happy Valentines Day to you!
This is one of my favorite days of the year. A day we shower those we love and adore with happies, hugs and quality time. Since two of those are my love language I am in heaven today!
I truly believe that God teaches us so much through our friends and elders. If you sit and listen you can gleam so many amazing lessons and words of wisdom. Things that make me stop, turn and say ... that is GOOD!
Happy Valentines Week! Or as it is known in the Lawyer house ... happy pink week!!!
It is my humble opinion that every single thing just looks better in pink, flowers, clothes, books, bags, sweets, sursies ... pink is the happiest color in know!

I have become completely addicted to coffee table books. So much so that I am trading my magazine subscriptions to use the funds to purchase books instead! I have quite a good collection going and have collected my favorites for you. The ones I have listed have one thing in common ... tons of color, amazing photos and inspiration for days!
This book is amazing and will inspire you beyond any expectations. Our pink dining room is the exact pink of the room on the cover!
