Since March Madness is approaching and every guy I know is fastidiously filling out a bracket I thought this picture, from Mrs. Lillien-style house blog, was a great play on words (and wonderful eye-candy). It ties in the two things currently happening at my house-preparation for St. Pat’s Day dinner (a hint of green) and college basketball. For all of us girls out there who are not overly interested in basketball, or St Patrick’s Day for that matter, take a moment and ponder these darling finds in the cutest shade of seafoam green. Personally, I’m dying to own the Paul McCobb club chairs. Unfortunately, I really have no place to put them so I will just have to settle on getting myself a bottle of Essie, Mint Candy Apple Polish instead.

I was recently asked by a friend, who is a fabulous photographer, to do a “rustic” bridal shoot. At first I was a little apprehensive as I’ve been married for almost five years and I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to look in my dress. Then after accepting this very flattering invitation, multiple nerves set in as I awaited the shoot. 1. I am definitely NOT a model, 2. I am NOT photogenic, 3. Why did I agree to this and 4. Did I mention, I AM NOT A MODEL! But, as you can all see, Erin Perkins is Ah-Ma-Zing! I cannot thank her enough for these beautiful pictures and making me feel so comfortable.
For all of you who live in the Pacific Northwest please take a moment to check out Erin and all her beautiful photographs. She is a very creative, passionate and professional photographer. Her website details all her strengths as a photographer and she couldn’t be more inspiring. If you are in need of any pics, please do not hesitate to contact her. I promise she will not disappoint.

Jeans are one of the most American fashion trends that exist. Through the decades styles have varied, but the one constant known to Americans is the good ole’ saying: “what goes around, comes around”. Skinny jeans kept 2010 on the cutting edge with the “jegging” and now “70’s -style” jeans are taking 2011 over the edge. Now, don’t toss your “jeggings” out with the bath water, they are still making a strong stand and look great cuffed at the ankle with a wedge or gladiator sandal, but when your ankles are in need of a little breathing room check out some jeans with flare. I recently purchased a pair of Gap “1969 Super Flare” jeans and can’t wait to wear them with a flowy top, long layered necklaces and a pair of espadrilles.

This week has been one of those weeks where I just couldn’t get the fire lit under me to have a ton of motivation. I think my body is trying to tell me that I am in need of rest and that is exactly what I have planned. My calendar only has a few things on it this weekend and surprisingly I don’t have too many errands to run either. With that being said, my number one goal this weekend is to have a movie night in with the hubby. There is absolutely nothing better than staying in on a Saturday night with a good movie, comfy sweats, lots of TREATS and the one you love. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend with the ones you love!
PS- Happy 1st Anniversary to L&R! It’s been a quick and very fun year. You two are amazing and deserve all the happiness in the world. Safe travels this weekend on your getaway.
