Are you as obsessed with Ree as I am? Last night I cooked up a version of her Summer Stir-Fry and it was the perfect blend of fresh garlicky tastiness. I tweaked it a bit by adding queso fresco, cilantro, fresh squeezed lime and a bit more butter. The hubby added diced avocado as well. Serious Yum. A definite go-to recipe to add to my repertoire.

Have you seen the film, The Romantics? It stars Katie Holmes, whom I have loved since her Joey Potter days. The story is about one small-wedding weekend among a group of very closeknit friends. The lakeside home in the movie is absolutely beautiful. My favorite scene is when all of the people in the bridal party are giving toasts at the rehearsal dinner. It captures the absolutely akwardness of knowing so much, almost too much, about another person in a wonderful way.
I love this haunting song from the soundtrack. Excuse the cheesy medley video. I like it because it showcases the JCrew campaign
Holy moly! This is the first Target Designer Collaboration that I literally CANNOT wait for! I love Calypso, but can really only afford their goodies when they are on massive sale. The whole store just screams effortless summer chic. So, this is a definite "can't miss" for me! Coming to a Tarjay near you on May 1st. Mark your calendar.
Remember Senior Superlatives? I was nominated for Most Sarcastic. Ha! My hubby won Mr. Garland High School. He was so cool. Which obv makes me cool because I married him. I am so lucky! His 10 year reunion is this year. Goodness, time flies!
Here are my nominees for Best Dressed at the Oscars (in no particular order):
What do you think? Cast your vote in the comments. My money is on Cate. Simply gorgeous.
Well do you? I do. And let me tell you sister. It is addicting. And a genius concept if you ask me.
Pinterest, as I am sure you all know by now, is a virtual interwebs version of an inspiration board. And it is interactive. Meaning you can follow other pinners who are inevitably more clever and creative than you. And you can repin their pins without feeling like a wimp who can't find their owns things to pin because the whole point of pinning is to share. How cool is that? And it helps me feel more organized. I don't have to have 15 sticky notes with web addresses and 42 word docs with links on my desktop anymore. Anyway, you can sign up here. And follow me here. I highly suggest it.

I would Very much like to own this satchel (don't you luurve the word satchel-very Kat Hepburn).
It is on sale right now (your favorite price point, right after free!, plus an additional percentage off if we buy it today which I can def arrange) and we have several lovely gifting occasions coming up, including but not limited to: the anniversary of you getting to marry me-lucky dog!, my birthday, your birthday, my excellent work review, our tax refund check coming in the mail, and it is a monday.
This new-to-me mama blog, lay baby lay, is incredible. The blog is full of sweet baby inspiration boards, tutorials and little gems for the kiddos. And Joni is so, so talented. The nursery she created for her beautiful baby girl (see it here and here) is seriously the best I have ever seen. I love it. And I can't wait to dig through all of her archives. You should too.
Jordan has the best ideas. I would love to have a gigantic map of the world with little colored pins dotting all of our adventures. Pink for places I have been, lime green for him. Blue for the places we have traveled together, and yellow? orange? polka dot? for places we dream of visiting. How fun!
Happy Valentime's day to my sweet, kind, funny, hunky husband! Hooray for our first married lover's day! You are the sugar in my coffee, the icing on my cupcake, and the love of my life. Basically you are the best! Happy vday and happier 11 months + 1.
