Little and Big...

These are old news for all you mommies out there, but I just stumbled upon Freshly Picked mocs while scrolling through Instagram. (They've also been featured in People, Parenting and In Touch.) They're just adorable! If only the little ones in my life were just a wee bit smaller, I'd be buying them in an instant!

SUP and Summer Wrap Up

It really was like a switch flipped on Labor Day! Seems that the seasons have changed from summer to fall in just one week! Here's the weekend/week recap complete with links to a couple of recipes...

On Labor Day weekend, the Sailor and I managed to play tennis twice (yay for finally getting out on the courts) AND, at long last, I crossed off stand-up-paddle board from my Summer Bucket list. I wanted to try it when I was in St. John, but none of the beaches I visited had boards for rent. Then the Sailor and I attempted it two other times- weather/wind and work interfered. I was just starting to think that it wasn't meant to be when we got out on the lake on a picture perfect, calm day.

Charm City Travels

Happy September! I'm back after a short work trip to Baltimore and DC, followed by a long holiday weekend at the lake. I was thrilled to be able to visit some new spots in Baltimore and some of my old favorites in Georgetown last week--The weather was hot, hot, hot, and I enjoyed some good shopping and good eats. What more can a girl want?

Quite possibly the best car ever. Spotted near Fell's Point on the Baltimore waterfront.

Fall Wardrobe Wishlist

Wow! August just flew by! Like everyone else, I can hardly believe that Labor Day is in a little over a week. The cooler temperatures are making me think ahead to autumn ... and I've already started a short wardrobe wishlist...

Round Up: Health/Beauty/Fashion/Travel

Good morning! Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but my routine has been interrupted as of late. I usually blog in the morning, but time has been limited since I've been working out with a trainer twice a week. And on those other mornings...sleep, paying bills and laundry have all become the priority.

Anyway, here's what's been capturing my attention these days...

I'd love to attend this conference...

Three Things

Style Me Pretty Glitter and Gold Little Girl's Birthday Party
This melted my heart! Everything about it! The precious little girls, the glittery accents, the puppy named "Summer," the lush willow trees and landscaping...

Love Shack Fancy
I've been obsessed with this dress ever since I spotted Emily of The Milly & Grace Girls wearing it here. I'm a big fan of "dip dye" (aka tye dye), and this silk georgette fabric creates the look of understated elegance. Some of these dresses are more in line with my budget though!

Southern Cross
Seems like every summer, there's one tune that becomes the song of the summer. A few years ago, it was Shambala. Then, it was Sister Golden Hair. This summer's song is Jimmy Buffett doing one of my favorite CSN songs.

Design Crush: Meredith Miller

I haven't seen a home that I've been this excited about since-- well, EVER before. Seriously. I just stumbled upon Meredith Miller's home featured on Society Social and Glitter Guide  this spring and cannot even find the words to convey how much I love this place! With bold colors, layered patterns, hints of metallic and a combo of contemporary and traditional pieces, it's eclectic and fun. Makes me want to do some dressing up of things over at our abode!

Months ago, the Sailor painted the walls going up our staircase navy as I requested...and I've been saying I want to do a gallery wall but just haven't put it together yet. Now I'm tempted to add white stripes and paint the banister white too!
