Headed to Boston!

James and I are headed to Boston tonight. Can't wait to walk the Freedom Trail , eat some yummies at North End and pretend I'm a pirate on the U.S.S Constitution! Will post pictures of the amazing architecture and our adventure soon.

White and Tiny

So chic, no? For my birthday James spoiled me with a new laptop that I could travel with easier. It is so light weight and has a battery live of over 10 hours. I'm in love.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! The 14th just so happens to also be my birthday and I was fortunate to be able to celebrate it with my sister and her family, as well as my childhood friend, Caitlin!

After getting some delicious sushi at Tani we went to Bailey's Chocolate Bar for some high calorie desserts and a glass of Big Ass Cab. Yes, that is the actual name.

My super cool pirate bday cake. James ordered it from the same lady who did our wedding!

James knows I've been dying for Spring to start so he got me a bouquet of tulips! Just ignore the toy....long story.

My Hero - seriously! 30 mins after this photo was taken James had to perform the Heimlich maneuver on his mother after she started choking on a piece of steak. Very blessed birthday that James was able to be there. Please take a moment to refresh your memory on how to perform the Heimlich never know when you might need to use it.

I'm An Old Lady

I just did my very first ebay listing (with the help of my husband). I'm obviously about 10 years behind technology. I need to get rid of my wedding gown that is sadly hanging up in the corner of our basement. I had tried craigslist with zero luck and James has recently promised that if I can say "au revoir" to my gown we can buy the LG washer with the Steam Clean! I NEED THAT WASHER...okay I want that washer.

We Booked It!

BEACH TIME! Destin Fl. here we come! James and I just booked our summer vacation to the Destin West Beach and Bay Resort. My sister and her family will be joining us as well. My personal pilot (aka husband) will be flying us down for lots of fun in the sun. We booked the penthouse suite, which has its own sundeck AND hot tub. The resort has multiple pools as well as a lazy river.

I should probably let my boss know that I won't be coming back.

I can picture us flying away right now...

Bday Madness

My pretty sister-in-law had a birthday recently so to celebrate James, his parents and myself all got in the family truckster and drove up to KC to see her. We started the day off by seeing her studio at Lauren's Hope. She does some amazing jewelry pieces for them and it was really great to see her work and all the fun metal tools she gets to play around with. The below link is all of her work. It's fabulous!

And since her creativity doesn't just end with jewelry her apartment is also a gem.

Cute little kitchen with her recent paint job. Notice the apron hanging on the wall? I'm sure she cooks often ;)

I love the claw footed tub and exposed brick in the bathroom. Yes Ann. I did take a photo of your bathroom.

Her sunny bedroom with a big bay window used as a headboard.

Thank god Ann has great friends to help her get this heavy antique piano into her living room.

Ann gets a lot of her furniture from thrift stores. Notice the 1970's floral print on the chairs and the floral couch a couple photos down. There is a closet that's is off to the side which houses her fine fashions and an...

adorable cabinet with glass knobs. It stores her only really working olive green typewriter.

Crate and Barrel candle holders hanging from the ceiling helps to break the living room and the dining room into two spaces. The painting in the background is actually our wedding gift from Ann....just wondering when we will receive it. So worth the wait. I just hope it comes in that awesome white frame!

And no bday is complete without building a hot air balloon out of her light fixture. Bon voyage!
