So many time people have told Hubby and I how beautiful Naomi is and that she has a mega personality to go with it. Well I am going to test this theory by seeing how she will do in the nationwide Model search with The Children's Place. Click the cuteness above to vote for my baby girl!
Today was definitely nothing like I planned. I planned to clean and do hair and finish up some majorly neglected projects, but instead I went to a Pow Wow. Yes, an actual Native American Pow Wow. Hubby was invited by the university's Multicultural Association to the Guilford County Native American Association Annual Pow Wow and I thought it would be great to tag along and see what a Pow Wow is all about.
I was so amazed to see the pride the people took in their work. The craftsmanship was outstanding. Most of the vendors hand made their items. Their willingness to explain the history and significance to both the traditional dress, dances, and ceremonies definitely made the experience much more enjoyable.

I most certainly did not think I was going to enjoy myself as much as I did. It was such an honor being a part of this experience.
This weekend was nothing short of perfection. We spent some quality time together, just the three of us. Saturday morning at the strawberry patch and the rest of the day at a BBQ festival in Winston-Salem (pictures forthcoming). By the end of the day we were happy, full, and exhausted!

Hey Loves! You know that lovely quiet weekend I was going to have...well I got it. I spent the majority of the weekend in bed asleep fighting what I now know to be a nasty case of strep throat. I can definitely attribute my illness to not eating the right foods and exhaustion.
So this weeks wellness tip will be to put the right things in your body and stay rested up. If you don't your body will turn on you and allow little monsters to invade your throat and lay you out.
Hello Loves!! It's a rainy Friday here in Greensboro, and I am so glad it is. This weekend is going to be short and uneventful, which I am thoroughly looking forward to. This week has been one of exhaustion and frustration, I just wanna be still. It would be perfect if the monsoon outside would linger and let the sound of the rain soothe my achy head. I am eager to rest, this week has been a beast.
Not all of it was bad, here are a few things that made my heart jump...
The cutest little journal I picked up at a quaint gas station on the way to Pop...I am not quite sure what to write in it yet so I am saving it for when genius strikes.
The sun setting behind the mountains and the freedom of the open road...
Hello all!!! I hope everyone had as relaxing of a weekend as I did! It's always the best in Pennsylvania at Pop's house! Great company, good food, relaxing atmosphere, and someone else for Naomi to focus her attention!
Leaving me room to indulge in the world of Christian Grey.....Oh My!
I had no idea that this was an erotic fiction, but from the first line I couldn't put it down! I started Fifty Shades of Grey on Saturday afternoon, and just finished Fifty Shades Darker 10 minutes ago(yes I'm at work)...all I know is I have been laughing and crying and pissed the hell off and I am tired. I can't imagine how Anastasia felt! I guess that is the Christian effect, well she stayed and so am I! Guess I better pick up Freed on the way home!
If you have read these amazing books, you know that there is talk about a movie and many speculations have been floating as to who will play the duo of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Here are my picks!
Perfect....but little Rory Gilmore would definitely have to prove herself worthy! Who are your picks? What?! You haven't read it yet? Well, turn off your computer and get to the book store!!!!
Hello Loves! Guess What?! We made it! It's Friday! TGIF! It's the Weekend Baby, and a 3-day weekend at that!!!! Who is excited as I am?! Well darlings, I hope that everyone's weekend plans turn out as wonderful as expected and wish safe travels and festivities!
A couple of things that made my heart skip a beat this week!
Set up for a manicure, after a bit of a rough Monday
Some colorful new additions to my nail polish collection
Working on my accessories game. The Buried Bauble from a couple of weeks ago. Bracelets~BaubleBar:: Watch~Tourneau:: Custom Wedding Band by Hubby
Am I the only person who looks forward to Friday's just because of the Buried Bauble?? I love it! They have such great pieces for only $10!!! I guess it's the trill of the hunt. Who's ready?!
Anh has truly been my Muse for the week. Her chic work wear has be yearning for some wardrobe additions to make my office ensembles more interesting, versatile, and attractive. I have said it before and I will say it again, If I have to work I want to do it looking (therefore feeling) my absolute best.
A little inspiration for those of you who feel the same.
So much of the time I feel like I would be better dressed if my circumstances (location, size, income) were different. I am not sure if I am using that as an excuse or if it is a legitimate issue that other people are having, so I am asking you.
How, if at all, do your circumstances affect your personal style? And how do you overcome those obstacles to achieve a bangin' wardrobe in spite of?
Hi all!!! I hope you all are making
through the week wonderfully! Today is Wellness Wednesday and I want to
talk about my Workout Wear Wishlist. Smack dab in the middle of Spring
with Summer quickly approaching, wardrobe adjustments are quickly being
made, but what about our gym wear? Shall we be forced to workout in the same gym clothes from our massive this-years-resolution-will-happen spree in
January? I don't know about you, but working out is not something I want
to do looking a mess! I need a great looking outfit to take the
attention away from the unattractive facial expressions and sweat
I mean what better motivator is there than a cute outfit to show off!!!
Here are a couple of outfits that would keep me looking good on the grind!
Happy Monday Loves! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Finally back into the swing of things after my Mother's Day New Orleans Trip. Most of the time I am thinking a million things at once and trying to make it all fit. Frankly, all that mental energy is exhausting and can make things more frustrating.
If anyone of you reading experiences the same thing, you might need to be reminded that...
I am so excited about this weekend at home! Last weekend I went to visit my mommy in New Orleans for Mother's Day. After the 13 hour drive there and back (yes a whopping 26 hours) and no break before going back to work, my house needs some TLC and I really need a nap! This low key weekend is definitely in order...hopefully Naomi will be a relaxed as I need her to be...
Hubby and I have been talking about buying a house for a while and now we are finally getting to it. We are looking at a number of different options, buying vs. renovating vs. building but all I can think about it how I am going to decorate!!! Ooops, I mean we.
All day I have been looking for decorating inspiration. Pinterest is wonderful for home decor!!! Here is what I have come up with so far...
Chef's Kitchen with Hidden Pantry
Open Kitchen/Living Room Concept
Modern Living Room with Clean Lines
Dream Room for my Baby Girl
Master Bathroom Vanity
Master Bedroom Sitting Area
Main Entry Foyer

We always say we want to make our house somewhere we want to be. This is definitely where we want to be!!! I look forward to keeping you posted on our house hunting...exciting yet daunting at the same time.
