i dream of one day owning a beautiful pedestal table....
and by the time i actually have the opportunity to get one....
i'll probably have already changed my mind and moved on to another style!
because thats how we design folk are.....
but for now.

i love, love, love pedastal tables.

{love the industrial about casual dining!}
 {i think it'd be fun to have these metal chairs for spring/summer and then something a little more formal...maybe a parsons chair for fall/winter}

{chunky wood table with slipcovered chairs...fabulous!}

{i know i've used this image before...but that table is ediable!} :)

{white, black, wood, metal, glass....i'd take any combination i could get!}

{a little fancy for my taste, but still beautiful!}

Hope y'all are having a beautiful Thursday!

Yes...i'm back tonight, to post that my sweet boy is officially 6 months old today.....
which means 6 months ago today i was..... 
you know the story....i won't scare any future to-be mommas out there.


all i have to say is it was thee best day of my life. 

{this was my view him in his bassinet}

{my sweet boy}

I thought I had an "idea" of what being a momma would be like.....

but really

I had no idea.....

that i could love another human being sooo very much!

Happiness is....the heart-swelling feeling of looking into his baby blue eyes knowing "he is mine."

{wiww + room inspiration} week 7

The mornings have been chilly, the afternoon's are beautiful, and the evenings it gets chilly again.  Layers are essential and quite helpful when you live in Texas in the spring....I usually start out with a cardi or scarf and shed it as the day goes on.  I've learned that not only are layers practical they also make outfits interesting. 

Layering textures, colors, patterns, and styles makes an outfit visually appealing.  Much like adding layers in a room.....mix and match and eventually you will get a combination you love! 

Also some exciting news....

yes. my golden birthday is a few short weeks away....

so i thought i'd come up with a list of treats that are on my "wish list"

ruffle socks

i  really love this one...

Max & Chloe
 but for 57 bucks...that would cost more than usually my entire outfit would....
so i would happily settle for this look-a-like!

turquoise teardrop necklace


shabby apple dress

mustard cardigan

gorgeous ruffle bedding


and for my one really big splurge item...

My computer crashed shortly before christmas last year and thus I lost my photoshop (it was a student version) I was so bummed and have been missing it ever since!

I'd happily accept any of the above gifts....if anybody is feeling especially generous! ;)
(only kidding)

Happy Tuesday!

not a drum like this....

a drum like this....

or this.....

or this....

hello gorgeous drum shades
{which are all over blog world}

i really need you in my life.


do any of you mommas out there have sophie the giraffe for your babies?
if sophie.

we actually call her "sophie girl" at our house.


We got Cash his very own sophie, and he LOVES her! She is just the perfect size for his little fingers, and he squeals in delight when she makes her squeaky sound. He held her nearly the entire first day we got her, i wanted to get him one a long time ago, but with a price tag of $22.00 for a piece of rubber i nearly flipped out! Chance and I weren't sold. But we finally decided to "splurge" a couple weeks ago and give it a shot since he has been chewing on everything within a 1 ft radius of himself! So glad we broke down and got sophie for him....he loves her.

{wiww + room inspiration} week 6

Week six?! Wow. WIWW is like boot camp some weeks....and other weeks it's been super easy for me to put outfits together.  I think the hardest thing, is trying to fight the urge to just go out and buy all new clothes (not that that is even an option) it's hard to work with shirts and jeans you've had for years! My old clothes appear "boring" and "blah" sometimes when I'm standing in my closet trying to decide what to wear that day.  I feel like I've worn  many of them a thousand times over.  None of my clothes (besides a few select pieces, which I can probably count on my fingers) are "expensive."  And the few that are labeled "expensive" were probably STILL bought on sale.....

On the flip side, I LOVE a good challenge.  And the past six weeks have really helped me get out of my "rut" thinking I had nothing to wear.  I've looked at my once "old" and "boring" clothes in a different light, seeing potential.  Adding layers, accessories, mixing new with old, has helped me see things differently.  Some of my "old" clothes have new life because I've found pairing them with other things helps them appear "new".  Seeing colors on a large scale {in my inspiration rooms} has helped me put together color combinations I would have never thought of before. 

This is all to say.....I've learned to love getting dressed in the morning.  I love getting inspiration from other women doing the same!  So here's to another week of clothes.... let's remember that underneath all the clothes is a person who wants to feel beautiful, and it's not what you wear, its what you do in the clothes that you wear.  So go out and make a new friend, volunteer your time, hug a stranger, step outside of your box and take a risk,  call a long lost friend, donate your "old" clothes to goodwill, and do something that truely reflects who are on the inside.
