Wishing you all a Colorful Friday

February 22, 2013

Happy end to a wonderful week!  I'm excited because my parents will be in town this week.  I love it when they come.  Its so much cozier to have them around and of course it makes Little A's life so much more complete to have her grandparents.  We don't have anything exciting planned just many meals together be them at home or at restaurants.  I have so many links for you today.....where to start?  In no particular order....

1 ||  After the debut of my pillows on Society Social I have been spending way too much time on this site coveting everything and I have fallen in love with this sofa.  It would be so fabulous in a library.

2 ||  I fell prey to groupthink and bought myself this t-shirt.  I will let you know once I get it, but it is supposed to be super soft.

3 ||  I started watching Season 1 of Downton Abbey.  OMG, I can't believe I had lived without seeing it this long.  I'm so in love with Matthew Crawly.  What a wonderful series, so beautifully written and acted.  I love learning about the nuances of everyday life during the early 1900s.

4 || I'm new on Instagram.....follow me here

5 ||  Did you see my guest post in Because it's awesome?  I worked really hard on it so I'm particularly proud of it. It is all about choosing a color palette that really works.

Happy Weekend loves. Have a wonderful one!

  2. Hooray for having the parents in town for the weekend. Girl, you guest post yesterday was a freaking color tutorial. I'm gonna be referencing it in the future for sho. I so need to watch that Downton Abbey. One of my BFFs has been raving about it endlessly but I just got sucked into Scandal and can only handle one TV obsession at a time. Anywho, TGIF. And cheers to the freaking weekend.

  8. I'm so jealous that you're only on Season 1! I'm all caught up which is a bummer. We did the binge DVD watching at our house over the summer. I'm off to check out your links!

  12. I just saw your guest post on Because it's awesome and congratulations! A great post full of colors :)
    I love colors!!! And your color combo are really beautiful!
    Have a great weekend and enjoy those days with your family ♥

  13. I have a thing for color...like a really big thing! But for a while now (since the end of summer) I have been on a major color detox. It had never happened to me before, but I actually could not stand to wear or be surrounded in my home by anything but neutrals. So weird!! BUT, I am happy to report that I am once again feeling incredibly drawn to and inspired by color, color, color!!! Perhaps it is the desire for spring, I don't know for sure...but I do know that it is a joyous time for me :) Okay, totally rambling... so, bottom line is that all of that color makes me SO happy & inspired! Oh, and just checked out your color feature - amazing!!! well done, lady :) Happy, happy weekend to you :) p.s. now following you on instagram!

  14. Uh oh...do I need that tee?!?! I'm picturing that pink fur draped around it!! Eeeeek!
