Snooze button please

I'm usually a pretty good morning person, but seriously this is the way I felt towards the alarm clock.

**this is a pic of my niece's cat Squishy {he's named after the baby jellyfish in finding nemo}

Red's my favorite color

"Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast? First you ask if you can be red, knowing that I'm always red"{Heather Chandler}

Remember Heather's? It's been such a long time since I've seen that movie. I played a few games of croquet much fun. Can't say I'm quite as mean as Heather Chandler but I do get pretty competitve. Anyway I won a game!! Had a great weekend...nice and relaxing.

Out with the old...

Kinda feel like doing something different with myself.

Wearing red lipstick sounds like a fun change that's not too drastic, besides my glossed lips are getting boring.

This is a pretty old pic when my hair was red.

So Excited!!

My birthday is tomorrow! I'm turning 23 and having a backyard party with family and friends. Should be lots of fun and the best part is my sister is flying in from Virginia. I get to meet the newest member of our family, my one month old niece Isabella. Best present ever!!

My sisters threw me a surprise party when I turned 21. I love this cake.

This is last year's made this one.

The ladies I work with decorated my desk today. I really love how they put the ribbon streamers on my bulletin board.

So Girly

My sister has been building a house recently and just finished decorating my niece's bedroom. I think it is so fun and girly. Just look at all those dress up clothes and trust me that's only a few of them. I love the green dresser with the pink pretty. The perfect bedroom for any little girl.

Here are some photos from a feature I found on the Traditional Home web page from Michelle Smith's loft studio. She is the designer of clothing line Milly which first launched back in 2000. My favorite part of her space is the love seat...and the big windows...and the size of her inspiration board!!

Here are some styles from her spring runway show for 2009. Enjoy!!

Flamenco Dancer

When I was younger my parents loved to take trips to San Antonio during the Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Ever since I was a little girl my favorite part was the flamenco dancers. I wanted to be one so bad, or at least own one of the dresses! Everything about them was beautiful, the dance, the dress (all the pretty colors and ruffles),and of course the girls. So in the spirit of the festivities, I thought I would share some photos from the SIMOF 2009 Flamenco Fashion Show. View more photos at here.
