Stemming from my love of the JCrew Pinecone and Squirrel Holding Acorn bracelet (probably the most random bracelet ever created, but my favorite) and longing for everything east coast.

My husband’s friend told us that we needed to claim our future kids names early so that we’d have them locked up before the rest of our friends get baby fever and want to birth things too.

I was at Target yesterday buying things for my upcoming sleepover party weekend with my best friends (yes, I’m going to be 26 and still have slumber parties), and scouted this oven mitt that I fell in love with.
If you had told me when I was 14 that I would fall in love with an oven mitt, much less one named “Garden Party,” I would have never believed you. Neverthless, here she is. No, I haven’t named her yet.
I also love their Shabby Chic collection for bed + bath. I know that I would probably be a single lady if I decided to buy this bed set, but I think it’s so cute!
I’m late to the tea party, but I’ve just found Polyvore and I am in love. I am a total collager/scrapper/article hoarder/ and this is so fun in helping me make outfits and also collages. Here’s a few I’ve been working on.

From eVite: “Cupcakes are still all the rage, so I was glad to see this clever twist on the treat from The Insomniac Chef: mini cupcakes served with mini cocktails. They created a five-course cupcake tasting menu (note: insomniacs), but you can be far less ambitious and still throw a swanky party.
Just make or buy your favorite cupcakes, and choose a drink with complementary flavors, so these two great tastes taste great together. Some flavor basics to get you started: berries and sparkling wine are a classic combination; chocolate goes well with coffee-flavored liqueurs; and carrot cake just begs for bourbon. I even like to spike my carrot cake cream cheese frosting with bourbon to bring out the vanilla flavor.
Top each cupcake with a cocktail parasol. Fancy.
Try this menu for a bridal shower, cocktail party or a really good Tuesday. And be sure to invite me.”
….Can’t wait to try these!
I just found out about this idea and think it’s adorable! I live in a smaller apartment with a dog and two kitties, so space is an issue, but I’d love to have a small version of this during the summer.
Here’s some posts about other Wii parties:
Tips from eVite:
Step 1 – Figure out a date that works well for your Wii-Playing friends.
Step 2 – Go to Evite, www.evite.com and send out an Evite with a Wii theme. Search for “wii party” under designs.
Step 3 – Ask guests to bring any remotes and games that they have for the Wii.
Step 4 – On the day of the party, setup your Wii or Wii’s. Make sure there is enough space for everyone to play comfortably.
The Chipotle Vegetarian Burrito Bowl is my favorite thing on the planet to eat, and I’d seriously eat two today if I could still fit into my clothes for all of the social events going on this week.
I’m going to a wine bar opening tomorrow night and a Summer Solstice party Friday, which is tropical themed, and means I have absolutely nothing to wear. Finding an outfit for this will be an interesting challenge.
I do like both of these dresses from Banana Republic – I’m going to head over there after work and see if either of them will work out. Nothing says challenge like finding a fancy tropical themed dress!
