Have a Lovely Weekend & a Fabulous 4th of July!

Morning y'all! This time tomorrow I'll be on my way to my happy place in Sea Island, Georgia.  I cannot tell you how excited I am.  That view is from the balcony of our family friend's house.  I took it when I visited last year and let me just go ahead and give them the award for winning at life.  It will be so nice to go down there and relax knowing that we basically sold our house (we still have a few post-inspection details to negotiate, but overall the inspection went really well).  I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend, and take a moment to celebrate America! I may try to post from Sea Island, but if I don't have a chance, I'll be back a week from Monday.  Follow me on twitter if you just can't stand not hearing from me for more than a week or if you want to know what I'm eating at any given moment of the day.  I promise not to tweet about any SCOTUS decisions (although I do plan on reading one in particular over my vacay - I'm weird, I know) or the heat (I love the heat so I am neither bothered nor surprised by it).  Also, enjoy these lovely linkiepoos:

I made Ina Garten's Linguini with Shrimp Scampi for my girls' dinner last night 
Easy & Yum!

Lots of blue and white chinoiserie on One Kings Lane today! 

And just for giggles, my sissies on the 4th of July when they were little:

Elizabeth in full clown make-up (it was a phase) & Laura in her smocked dress - I can't wait to see them again!


  1. Awww...shucks, thanks :) LOVING that Melissa Odabash coverup. It is to die for.

    Speaking of to die for, I am unspeakably jealous that you're headed to Sea Island. I expect many Instagrams.

    XX and safe travels!!

  2. I am going to miss you this week. Have a great vacation. Hope you find some b&W while you are there.

  3. Hi there. My name is Mariel and I just found your wonderful blog. I love everything preppy. That picture of you and your sisters is so cute and I hope you have a great vacation! I just started following your blog and cannot wait to read and follow up on all you have to post and hope you follow back so we can comment on each others posts going forward!

(i.e. Your Comment: what's up with the Biebs and Selena Gomez? My Reply: I don't know but it's keeping me up at night. He's so cryptic on Instagram, it's hard to really know)
