Things that make me smile...

Happy Halloween! I'm off to spend the weekend with my 2 year old cousin...always fun!

I'm much more into fun/sweet/cute Halloween costumes than scary ones :) Don't they look like they're having a blast?!

Pixar, SF, & lots of fun!

I had such a great time in the bay...I wish I could have just stayed!

Baby Shayla...she's so cute!

Pixar was awesome! So cool, the tour was great!

Check out that view!

They even took me to find the Full House house! Too bad they painted over the red door!

Things that make me smile...

This weekly post is typically dedicated to rooms I'm loving at the moment, but today I thought I'd mix it up a little. I found this fabric yesterday and have a major crush! Isn't it awesome?

What's your mood? Oct 2010

Here goes No. 2!

I have been in love with this West Elm bedding forever! I love the texture, its also organic, and with six colors available it can work for anyone's taste.

I also love this paisley pillow, its full of color and texture. I probably like paisley more than most people, but its just so interesting.

The bed frame is Hemnes from Ikea and super affordable, solid wood for only $199!

I think this rug from Pier 1 will look great under the bed. I love the curvy lines and mix of colors.

This table lamp from Shades of Light is so unique! I love the shape! It kind of (loosely) reminds me of the Pixar looks like it should be hopping around! How fun would it be to see it first thing every morning!?

The night stand offers great storage with the double drawers but isn't too heavy. The lamps will look great sitting on top, and how bout bringing some of nature inside with an easy-to-care for cactus?!

And in the bedroom you always need curtains! Especially ones that can keep all the light out, at least for those of us that love to sleep in on the weekends! These beauties from Neiman Marcus can be hung about 6" above the top of the window to accentuate the rooms height.

There are definitely parts of this room I'd love to have in my own, what about you?

This room could be decorated horribly and still be beautiful with those beams! They are such a great architectural element in this room! But no, the beams are surrounded by equally beautiful things!

Anyone want to believe those are all candles in that chandelier? Or is it just me? :) Doesn't this just make you want to light a fire, some candles and enjoy a cup of coffee?! I can almost hear the soft music playing...

A new do...

As the seasons change, besides swapping out my wardrobe and adding some seasonal of my favorite things to do come autumn is to change the color of my hair! Anyone else add hair to their season preferences? No? Okay, just me then. Well naturally I'm not exactly sure what my hair color is...oops :) But it is around that lovely dishwater blonde. You know, not exactly a blonde, but not rich enough to be considered a brunette. Yeah, okay, so maybe that's why I try not to see it's the new color for this fall/winter season!

What ya think?

Headed to the Bay...

I'm headed down to San Francisco/Oakland tomorrow! Going to visit my cousins and their brand new baby girl! I'm so excited to meet little Shayla! And take a tour of her Daddy's workplace...

Here he is outside :) Yes, you all know what this means!! Pretty stinking cool!

Things that make me smile...

This room is so calming, and simple. I especially love the duvet! And the lampshade...wonder if I can find a fabric like that to recover a lampshade lying around the house!

Sunday Brunch

One of my favorite things to make on the weekend! Its so easy, and SO good!

I actually went shopping yesterday so we had tons of toppings to choose from, but some mornings when there are no veggies in the house we just make it with cheese, and it is still great!
