Guilty As Charged

I would be in total heaven if these were my shoes. Yep, I'm just like every other girl. A shoe whore.

Have you seen this?

It seems that the trend of customizing your life is catching on and growing very quickly. By customizing your life I mean, retailers everywhere have started creating websites that allow you "create" your own stuff. 

Have you seen the Design Studio by Serena and Lily? It's pretty awesome! I love the Custom Upholstery builder, where you can select a style of chair:

Then your fabric/fabric grade:

You can change the wood color of the legs and the nailhead color from nickel or natural brass.
Here are some I created, and I really really wish I could afford. Guess I'll just use them as inspiration for when I go thrifting.

They also have customizable beds, headboards, ottomans, and gliders. The possibilities are endless. Let your imagination run wild in the jungle. You will have an absolute blast! Just don't get to attached, unless you've got a roll of Benjamins in your purse. You lucky dog!

Which one is your favorite?

 I have created 5 Save The Date cards and I'm in a bit of a dilemma one which one I would like to use. So it would be so totally awesome, my dear readers if you could give me some feedback on which one is your favorite. Thanks so much!

So far I'm leaning towards number 2 or number 4! Let me know what you think!

Loving the Color Purple

I love that purple color! Too bad Chadd hates purple or I would have had my bridesmaid dresses lavender, and I would paint our bathroom a similar color to the one below.

Have you seen the small space apartment designed by David Kaihoi featured on the House Beautiful website? I think it's just perfect. The colors and accessories are my favorite. Such detail equals a stunning and lovely home.

Have a look, and get inspired!!!

Office Space for a Creative Mind

What do you think about the new blog design? Well it's not much but a color change, but I think it looks way better than before.

It was a goal of mine to design a new blog header when I reached 20 followers! Well as of yesterday I completed that goal, and as promised (to myself) I designed a new header. I like it very much! Very Very Much! What about ya'll? Are you in love with header as much as I am?

If you're reading this, and you're not a follower, you should totally follow to see what I have planned for 30 followers. It's gonna be so much fun!

Thank you to my new and old followers. Your comments are what keep me blogging!  

Now on the to post of the day. I have been in a little bit of a rut lately with work/life. It's been wake up, go to work, lunchtime, work some more, clean house, workout, dinner, shower, and then sleep. Same thing everyday. I'm in need of a weekend/weekend decorating project. Lucky for me tomorrow is Friday! Whoop!

But maybe if I could convince my boss to let me decorate my office like these below then creativity might just flow from my veins. I will keep you posted on his response. 

The first three are my absolute favorite!

If I had my wish, I would have all white bedding

I told Chadd that once we move into our new house, and I have saved up enough money to redecorate our bedroom there is no question that I will have white bedding. Right now the cat and dog are allowed to come in the house, and everyone knows that pet hair and white bedding don't mix.

But there's something about that crispy white sheet and comforter that makes me drool. I guess its like hotel/spa feel that I like so much. I want to be able to read and relax in peace. Doesn't that just sound so amazing?

I absolutely love white linens, white down comforters, white bed skirts, everything white. 
Plus, you get to decorate with colorful and funky pillows that will just "pop" right out atcha! 

Here's what I'm using for inspiration:

Dear Unborn Daughter

Dear Unborn Daughter,

I promise to:

Do my best to raise you right

Do my best to keep you from making mistakes I've made

Keep you safe

Hold you close

Teach you right from wrong

Teach you to wear heals

Teach you how to win

Teach you how to lose

Teach you how to drive

Teach you how to love

Brush your hair

Paint your nails

Do your make-up

Read you bedtime stories

Buy you pretty dresses

Buy you books

Buy you shoes

And decorate a room for you that looks like this:

Beach Colors

Whew! What a long week huh? I thought it was supposed to be short since I had Monday off. Boy was I wrong. I'm totally and utterly exhausted. 

I must say that I have a busy weekend planned, it's the Annual Fireman's Parade and Dance this Saturday. Tonight Chadd, Chadd's family, and me are staying up all night cooking bbq for the whole thing. (Not sure how, since I could crawl under my desk and sleep right now) They do it every year. It's a family tradition, and now I get to join in a festivities! YAY! 

Hey, I'm from a small town, it's the highlight of the year. Don't judge me, but I do give you permission to laugh.

But if I didn't have any plans this weekend, I would want to stay in places like this on the beach somewhere. Not the Texas beach at the moment, with the hurricanes and the oil in Gulf, you couldn't pay me enough to go down there. 

Well maybe a million dollars would do the trick, but who has that laying around the house. There are actually quite a few things I would do for a million dollars, I'll leave that up your imagination. 

Enjoy these photos from Coastal Living.

Happy Friday, I hope you all have a great, glorious, and lovely weekend!
