Here are a few simple things that rocked my world this week...
|Out of clutter, find simplicity. |
As I get older, I see the charm in a stack of books or an arrangement of plates displayed on a wall.
Thank you Fernand Leger for bringing such beauty to my attention.
5 big belly laughs courtesy of Bravo
#1.) Mary & Nathan fly to North Carolina to visit the High Point Furniture Market
|Very, um, Gone with the Wind-ish...|
Did anyone else laugh out loud when Nathan and Mary (Million Dollar Decorators) showed up at a Comfort Suites Inn in North Carolina and Mary was less than impressed? "Is North Carolina the south?" Her one-liners had me rolling. Click on the caption above to check it out. I can't help it, but I absolutely adore her. She's a giant hoot! I was thoroughly entertained.
#2.) Kathryn joins Martyn in Palm Springs
|Daaaahling, do come out and play.|
|I'll have what she's having.|
#3.) Jay Mohr in the WWHL Clubhouse
|I saw it with mis ojos!|
#4.) Jeff & Jeanne
|Jeff, go sit on that toilet.|
#5.) When turtle time meets Doug E. Fresh
|This beat was bubblegum, so I had to chew it.|
Watching Ramona, Alex and Sonja update their dance moves last night was ALMOST too painful to watch. Don't get me wrong, I definitely had to rewind and watch it again. It was just that good. Not to mention, I feel 10 times better about my own dance moves after seeing Alex back it up and dump it. If I were Ramona, I wouldn't worry as much about embarrassing Avery with Luann's music video. I think the deed was done in the dance studio. It's clear that all these ladies need is a beat that's super bumpin'.
Now that you've been Bravo-fied, we'll move on to a few other things that made me grin, giggle and feel utterly grateful.
a cheeky hat
This lively straw hat by Kate Spade should be arriving at my doorstep any day now.
It was on sale just begging me to buy it. It was a no-brainer. I mean, think about this hat's future...
Beach themed parties, a possible prop in our Christmas card (a little foreshadowing?), etc.
Not to mention, she will look darling on our hall tree.
A DIY foot scrub and this Aveda foot cream should do the trick! Add a little Essie Tart Deco and we have perfection. After a pedicure like this, you'll be proud enough to go barefoot like Audrey!
|Has anyone ever looked so cute golfing?|
a supportive family
|Every Day I Love You|
ride & conquer
|Spinners are winners.|

I don't like to parade around in my bike shorts. I have worn them in public a few times because I wanted to support flyboy's need to be just like Lance Armstrong during our newlywed phase. To be honest, I'm not very proud to confess that I even own a pair. After the Modern Family episode with Cam in his shorts, I constantly feel like my lower half should be blurred out as well. They're just the most unflattering thing ever made, but I do appreciate the extra cush for my tush -- another reason I choose to do this at home!
|Lose the bike shorts!|
on a prettier note...

Have a wonderful weekend!
