p-dubs cooks

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.

the romantics

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

Preparedness, The Bird and the Bee

The trailer. Totally worth renting.

calypso + target

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.

all about your heart

Hope you enjoy this lovely, lovely song for your Friday. Sometimes I feel just like that little cutie. I could just spin and spin and spin for hours.

All About Your Heart, Mindy Gledhill

Another good one from Mindy. We are off on a lake house weekend retreat and the weather is slated to be in the 80s. I love spring. Hope your weekend is full of sunshine too!

well organized home

Constantly in search of little tips and tricks to keep our casa neat and organized (I am a little bit too type-A). This is a brilliant solution from Martha, of course.
p.s. I didn't initially realize it, but there was a happy little bit of green for you on St Patrick's Day. Enjoy!

oscar superlatives

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.

do you pin?

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.
