Have a Lovely Weekend (unless you live in Kansas City)

a patio that looks a bit like ours but not covered with snow & ice

Ummmmmmmm y'all,


A Lot.

Like stick-to-the-ground-tulip-murder snow.

I can't even.  I can't.

So if you are like me and curled up in the fetal position crying while a toddler/animal hybrid jumps on your head, pick yourself up and enjoy some of my linkies:

I just printed 150 Instagram photos of Edward for his room
might be one of my favorite things now

These Pink Jessica Simpson Maternity Jeans are on sale and so cute on

Mother's Day Gift Idea: Ginger Jar Scarf 

A great post on dressing southern tots from Dixie Delights - she would know!

I am in love with Hanna Seabrook's home - my kind of gal

A good blue and white post to visit from Tina and The Enchanted Home

If you're going to have a neon sign in your house ...

Green House Love 

Before & After: Love this nursery from Phoebe Howard

What a difference a coat of white paint made on this house
 P.S. So sad to see this blogger leave the blog world :( 
(that sounded kind of morbid, she just decided to stop blogging)

A Pink Chandelier :)

Love this quote!

 I know it's made the rounds, but I still can't get enough of this interview with Ryan Lochte

I made these baked chicken chimichangas the other night - easy & yummy

May have to try these faux flowers

I need to add this china pattern to my collection 

Lest you think I'm being dramatic ...

Leawood, KS - May 2, 2013


  1. OK so many comments:

    *Thanks for posting my Pinterest post :)
    *I never knew the words "Jessica Simpson" "maternity" and "cute" could all be used in the same sentence, but you are SO right.
    *That scarf. I die.
    *When you said you wanted a black secretary, I immediately thought of Dawn on Mad Men. I'm going to burn in hell.

    Happy weekend and stay warm!

  2. Oh and totally am stealing that chimichanga recipe!

  3. Jennifer I am right here in Leawood and it is crazy!
    It was almost 80 earlier this week! I say Scary Gary! We had better be getting over this schitzo weather.
    PS Last day to enter for a Paris Book!

  4. OMG with the snow. GGGAAARRRYYY! I love toddler/animal hybrid and I also look forward to Friday because I LOVE these posts. You have the best taste and tips.

  5. Snow! In May! I am soooo sorry..you poor thing guess there is such a thing as too much of a good thing, ugh! Hope the sun shines soon and gets hot fast!

    Thanks for including my blue and white post...the ginger jar scarf has intrigued me as I love my scarves, so must go take a look!! Always enjoy pursuing your links....enjoy your weekend.

  6. Oh yuck... snow. really?? We've had some cold weather in Dallas. Always love your Friday posts. Hope you are feeling well.

  7. I know, I know. In Houston it was 45F last night, which is very much below normal. What happened to global warming? Now, about collecting china, crystal, silver...never stop. Even if it is very expensive, ask for a piece for each occasion (from everyone you know). Eventually you will have all you need. And, it will always be with you. I love all my things collected over decades, handed down to me, purchased all at once...whatever...I love all of it and it makes me happy to use it. xx's
