Picture day at school

Oh yes that favorite day of the school year... School Photos!
Its so fun seeing all the little kids sporting their best hair styles and new outfits. Its as if its back to being the first day of school or... once again.. being reminded of all the bad school photos I have taken in my life time! I mean how can I forgot my one school photo where I sported a permed bob with hot pink glasses one year.

Any fond memories of your school photos?

Saying goodbye to a friend

Tonight I said goodbye to a dear friend who is moving to the east coast due to both her and her husband getting new jobs. He was transferred earlier this summer so it was nice that she was able to stay behind and have a month with us girls! I wish her nothing but the best and I look forward to having a new vacation destination. I will always remember the fun times Ms. L.

Carousel Ride

Our trip to Paris is right around the corner and one of the sites that I am most excited for (yes, just a tish more than going shopping in the Marais and St. Germain district) is to take a ride on the Hotel de Ville Carousel!

Ice cream for a sick girl

As I sit watching the Emmys on my sofa being sick with a sore throat and a high fever all that I can think of that would make me feel the slightest bit better would be a bowl of ice cream with chocolate chips.

Weekend Picnic

Tonight is my school wide picnic and its so much fun seeing all the students with their families! Plus, seeing this photo reminds me of having picnics with my mom when I was little. We would always go to a park for lunch on Saturdays.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Dream Kitchens

I really hope that someday I can have a kitchen like these. If I did I just may take a true interest in learning how to cook. Here are some of my favorite looks.

I love the french doors and windows, flooring and the chandelier


I love the bright color accents with the black/ white contrast
Love the white cabinets and the storage space on the center island. Perfect for cookbooks, especially filled with cupcake cookbooks.

What would your dream kitchen look like?


Pretty much how I am feeling today.

Who doesn't love flowers and headbands?! A dear friend from college (who is beyond talented) custom makes these headbands. You can also select any color combination that your heart desires. Each time I have worn mine (I have two of them) I have received compliments. If you are looking for a fun hair accessory check out plum accessories!

French Love

My husband and I leave for Paris next month and I already know I am going to love the city! In addition to eating a lot of great food and enjoying the fine wine, we plan on visiting the Beaches of Normandy and touring the champagne countryside.
