Navy + Coral + White

So I am thinking of doing a color makeover for our living room. I am obsessed with the color navy but didn't know exactly what complementing color I wanted to choose. After the help of my sweet twitter friends I have decided to do navy, coral and white! It's classic, perfect for spring/summer and will be just what the rooms needs.

I am not worried about finding the perfect navy and white stuff because its everywhere right now and I already have accumulated a good amount of items but deciding on the perfect coral accessories might be a bit more challenging. First thing I want to do is find the perfect fabric for the pillows. I have successfully narrowed it down to these 3 fabrics. Now this is where you come in. I need your help deciding which one to choose. I love them all and think they would each go great in the room but the undeceive person in me can't make up her mind. So....which one do you prefer?

Once I have the fabric selected I hope to find the perfect complementing pieces. Any tips or suggestions would be fabulous!

P.S. I am almost done with the guest bathroom. Pictures to come soon!

Something Borrowed

Good morning!!! I am back from from a refreshing three day weekend! I got alot done but at the same time did not. Does that make sense? It was nice though. I got my hair done, enjoyed some much need girl time, got one step closer to finishing the guest bathroom and we also ripped up all the carpet in the house. Yep, all the carpet is gone and now it is concrete. We are starting to prep it for the wood floors we are installing but it didn't take as long as we thought it would. Which means there will be no bare feet in my house for another 2 or 3 weeks. It's a texture thing for me. It will be worth the wait!

So this morning I was super exciting when I heard the new trailer was out for Something Borrowed!!! If you haven't read the book yet then it is a must! GO.READ.IT.NOW! I promise you will be hooked!

But for now here is the trailer:

Are you hooked yet?! I can't wait for it to come out!!! I think I might just have to read it again!

Ok ladies I have to get a ton done at work but I will be back later with lots of photos!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Spring Fever Fashion

It's finally in the 70's here in Houston! Hallelujah!!! I don't mind the cold but it gets old really fast and I'm just not one to like to bundle all up unless I am sitting on the couch. So with this gorgeous weather I am starting to prepare my closet for a new spring/summer wardrobe. I have been roaming the web and I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed with Old Navy this season. I have always been a back and forth person when it comes to Old Navy. Sometimes they get it and sometimes they just fail! This coming season I give them a A+! Plus their prices are pretty darn good!

So here are a few of my top choices:

Left to right, top to bottom:

I've already called the hubby to see how soon we can go to Old Navy!
What's your favorite new spring fashions?

Let's hope this warmer weather is here to stay!

Finally Human

Whew! I am finally back to human. I have been MIA lately because I was totally knocked out for what feels like 2 weeks. The weather, allergies and just overall craziness finally caught up to me and I was literally down since last Wednesday. After a million horse pills, doctors visits, lots of tea and rest I am finally starting to feel better. I missed out on every weekend activity we had planned, was totally unproductive in the things I needed to get done and missed a ton of work. I do though have a new obsession with hot tea. It's the one thing that soothed my missing voice and sore throat and now I can't stop drinking it! And the dogs sure did enjoy me staying home. Yesterday morning Brixie was not happy when I left for work. But after a few hours here I had to go back home and boy were the dogs happy about it.
We slept the rest of the day.

Did I mention that its been FREEZING here?! I am completely over it and spring can't get here fast enough. I'm tired of layering, putting on my coat and freezing my buns off when I walk outside. I will take the heat any day!
OK I have alot of making up to do! I will be back in full force tomorrow!
Hope everyone is staying nice and warm! xoxo

I want to be back here right now.
Soaking up the sun, drinking a frozen beverage and not having a care in the world.

PS...I really hate this stupid cold weather!!!!

Shower of Love

I am cranky, cold and sick today. I live in Houston and we never have to deal with the unbearable cold but this year is different. I am freezing my tush off as it is 22 degrees outside but feels like 12. I know, I know we are a bunch of big babies here and we can't even compare to what most people are dealing with but we live in Texas for a reason. Oh and snow in Houston?! What?! For now I have my heater on full blast and I am sipping hot green tea in hopes that my throat starts to feel better soon. I am beyond ready for spring!

This past weekend was absolutely amazing! All of us bridesmaids hosted our precious friend Lauren's bridal shower. It was one of the most gorgeous showers I have ever been to! We had an amazing array of food including cupcakes from Ooh La La's Dessert Boutique, crab stuffed mushrooms, tomato basil mozzarella bites and so much more. We even had a mimosa bar that you can read more about here at my sweet friend's blog Two Hot Potatoes. Lauren received some amazing gifts and we all had a wonderful time showering her with love!
Here is a sneak peak of the shower.

After the festivities all of us girls went out for dinner and had a night of dancing and drinking!!!! Those pictures will come later but with alot of editing! It was definitely a blast! We looked at it as the pre-bachelorette party. I can't even imagine what that is going to be like and what kind of shenanigans we can get into then. All in all it was an amazing weekend and I wish we could do it all over again!

OK I am off to get another cup of hot tea. Hope you are all staying warm and cozy this week! xoxo
