DIY Rocks! And a winner ...

First of all I must say you all blow me away!  Seriously!  I want to have a large cul de sac where we all can live and create amazing things together.  How fun would that be?


Inspiration du jour ... #DIYlinkparty

Handmade Chinoiserie stockings via Chez V

There are so many amazing, creative people in the blog world.  They are creating things that literally blow my socks off!  Handmade stockings, hand painted ornaments, monogrammed ornaments ... the list continues!  


The Lawyer house at Christmas!!!

Thank you so much for all the love on our home yesterday!  It was such a fun day of hearing from so many of you.  I got texts, comments, emails and calls and every single one of them made me happy!  I truly wish I could have every one of you over for cheese, cracker and champs!  And I could send you off with a to go cup of cocoa!!


Our Home for Christmas ...

Today is the day ... our home is up on the 11 Magnolia Lane blog and ready for you to pop in and visit!  I am so excited to share this tour with you and thrilled that they asked me to participate!  I am among some amazing peeps!!


Simple Details = #fabulousdetails

This post from 11 Magnolia Lane's Holiday Open House requires a Sunday post!  It is just that good!  (oh, and I may be blogging to keep my mind off the reality that the hubs is gone again after less than 48 hours home!)

Back to the fabulousness that is Pam!


Cheery prints!


I am a busy little bee trying to get our house cleaned after Thanksgiving (23 is a lot!!) and transformed into a Christmas wonderland!  I just love my house decorated at Christmas and since I keep it decorated on the inside until 1/6 ... it makes it worth all the effort!


Holiday Open House ...

I am thrilled to announce the beginning of 11 Magnolia Lane's Holiday Open House.  I just love a blog hop, its like being invited to our besties homes for a tour!  And who doesn't love hanging with our besties?


Bestie gifts!!

sursie ... noun.  An inexpensive but unexpected gift. 

I love to give happies  ... I truly find nothing more satisfying then to give to others!  It is common for me to think of someone or see something ... wrap it up and pop it in your mailbox!  I absolutely love leaving sursies for others!


25 Days of Christmas ...

I just love the month of December!  Every single day of it.  
The excitement, the gifting, the music, the cocoa, the family time while preparing for the birth of Jesus.  It is nothing short of magical!  Anything that brings us together as a family is a win in my book!

And one of my most favorite traditions, the 25 Days of Christmas on ABC Family!


Inspiration du jour ... #blueandwhitebash

Good morning and Happy December!!!

It truly is the most magical time of the year ... and what better way to kick it off then with a The Pink Pagoda's Blue and White Bash?


Thanksgiving Prep ...

Happy Thanksgiving week!  I am in full prep mode for the house full we are expecting on Thursday!  I could not be more excited!  Nothing says thankful to me than to be surrounded by laughter, family and best friends!!


Remember our bar ... its time to REVEAL!!!

Yes, I know its been MONTHS between when I finished the bar and this post.  Yes, I should apologize for the delay.  And yes, I realize I have been busy.  

So how about we skip the rest of the chat and get on with it?


Green walls ...

I will admit I am completely obsessed!  Every since I saw Chev V's kitchen I literally dream about these green walls.  I probably should even say it ... 

I covet them!


Inspiration du jour ... #ORCfaves

I know you may be tired of me talking about the One Room Challenge ... but I just can't stop.  This round was just soo good!  This may be a long post, but I have to squeeze in all of my faves.  And there are so many ... 


Holiday shopping!!

I started shopping a few weeks ago, but today I would consider to be the first of my shopping for the season.  I have a list and I intend to get it done quickly!!


Random thoughts ... #thingsicurrentlylove

1.  I can't believe its Thursday already ... and just two more weeks until Thanksgiving.  We have so much going on that week as a family that I started prepping for the big T day.   It looks like we will have about 20 guests, some overnight, so prepping early is a big thing for me.  We have already divided up the menu ... so at this point table settings and an agenda is all I can tackle. 


Tuesday Thrift & Hump Day Eats & Drinks ... #minneapolis

I am quickly recovering from my long weekend in Minneapolis ... it was a cold, snuggly weekend with tons of bestie time and shopping mixed in!  In other words ... perfection!


One Room Challenge ... the deets

First of all I must say I am overwhelmed by your comments and love for our new bathroom!  We are seriously loving it and every time I catch a glimpse of the wallpaper my heart skips a beat!  It's soo good and matches perfectly with our bedroom ... well it will even more after I #makenewdrapes!


One Room Challenge .... Master Bathroom Finale

Welcome to Week 6 of the One Room Challenge!  If you have made it with me during this six week journey I owe you a bottle of champs!  It's been a long one ... but pinky swear, it is about to be worth every week of you checking in on me and wishing I would have more to show you.  


Inspiration du jour ... #cramming

Pinky swear I have not forgotten you.  I have forgotten all the posts I owe you and I surely miss blogging!

Week recap ... #holycruditsbeenalongtwoweeks

I am pretty much a homebody when it comes to travel.  My husband travels every single week, yet I am the one who usually stays close to home!  After back to back long weekends away I am beyond pooped.  Honestly, I don't know how he does it.

Tuesday Thrift ... #thriftingwithlance

Thrifting any time is a good thing ... but thrifting with a bestie?  Even better!!  I spent the day with Lance on Friday helping him gather items for High Point and client projects ... and of course scouting for myself!


Inspiration du jour ... #blueandwhitemonday

Happy Monday!!!  I am linking up this morning with the fabulous Jennifer of The Pink Pagoda!  Or as I like to think of her ... the queen of all things blue and white!

Autumn Blog Tour ...

Welcome to Day 1 of the Autumn Blog Hop ... 
the Lawyer House, or as the hubs calls it ... 

Hoodland South!


Inspiration du jour ... #autumn

Tomorrow is the official first day of Autumn and I am finally feeling a change in the air.  That crisp air is inspiring me to gather pumpkins, make soup and add flannel to my daily wardrobe.  My precious friend Ashley sent me this to die for Pumpkin Souffle candle and I lit it on Saturday in my first experience with fall in the house!


Week in review ... #relax,read&create

(via Pinterest)

I may or may not have mentioned that the kids were home this week for Fall break.  Why do we have a fall break you wonder?  Well, that would be due to the fact that our children start school the first week of August.  Crazy, I realize, but its true!

So the kids and hubs were home, except for that quick trip to NYC, and we had a wonderful week of relaxing, reading and catching up on life!


Hump Day Eats & Drinks ... #onepotpasta

Pasta is my jam!  My comfort food and my go to when I am looking for a warm meal.  For me ... a salad and a pasta dish is the perfect answer to what's for dinner!  It's the Italian in me for sure!

And what could be better than One Pot Pasta?


Tuesday Thrift ... #goldleaf

Ok, I am about to admit something that may shock you.  I recently bought my very first tube of Rub & Buff.

Do you need a minute? 


Inspiration du jour ... #30miles

(End of day 1 ... 20 miles down!)

If you know me IRL you know I don't work out.  I am active, but I don't belong to the gym and I don't run or walk on a regular basis.  I know I should, but the truth is I don't.  

I don't like tennis shoes and I loathe socks.  Growing up as a Floridian I only wore flip flops and they are by far my shoe of choice.  I wear them 9 months out of the year in some fashion or another, and it's just me.  Putting on a pair of socks (which I usually have to borrow from Little Bit) and tennis shoes is very out of the norm for me. 




Today is always a day of remembrance for us as Americans.  A day that changed our lives forever.  We all know where we were and many whose lives were never again the same. 

I learned a lot that day.  What it meant to be a country and truly what it meant to be an American with brothers and sisters all around me.  I am forever grateful for those who sacrificed their lives that day and since then to keep us safe and protected.

Wishing us all a day of peace and love on this very special day.

God bless America.



Hump Day Eats & Drinks ... #walkingtacos

So my precious friend Amanda is nursing another hurt ankle ... or as she calls it Anklegate 2.0.  
Since there is very little I can do to support her other than pop in with happies and send her funny texts to lift her spirits, Little Bit and I decided she could use a yummy dinner!  And since we all know cooking isn't my thing ... I had to make sure I made something I knew would be delish!

Lucky for all of us ... I am a master of the Walking Taco!!!


Tuesday Thrift ... vintage wallpaper

Of course you know my passion for all things vintage!  That passion most definitely includes vintage wallpaper!  I have a number of rolls in my workroom just waiting for the perfect project.   And while working in the bar area this weekend ... the perfect opportunity to use a room presented itself!


Inspiration du jour ... #masterbath

Well, since the One Room Challenge is less than a month (FREAK OUT MOMENT) away, I have started pulling together ideas for our master bedroom and bathroom.   And before the hubs has a heartache when he reads this ... I am only adding a few fluff changes to the master bedroom.  


Mailbox makeover!!

If you follow me on Instagram ... I posted a small version of this picture on Sunday.  I was in the middle of tackling the bed at the mailbox area and chatting with the hubs about my plan to replace our mailbox.  When I laid out my master plan for him and got to the amount it was going to cost (about $400) ... he stopped, looked at me and promptly said ... you are not spending that kind of money on a mailbox!


Hump Day Eats & Drinks ... Summer vs. Fall

As soon as Design Darling posted her "3 Cocktails to try this weekend" I knew the last long weekend of the year was the perfect time to try out the Mint Gimlet!


Tuesday Thrift ... #flowers

I have mentioned many times that Mondays around here are for restocking the house with fresh flowers.  Since yesterday was a holiday ... today was flower day! My favorite things to fill with flowers are my vintage finds.
