I made a bad decision. I had my hair cut and colored on Saturday and while I was sitting in the chair I said I wanted to do something different. I stupidly mentioned that I liked Reese Witherspoon's new bangs and said sure, let's go for it... I forgot, though, that I looked nothing like her. Oh well, lesson learned. And hey, 1992 wasn't all THAT bad, so why should I worry about the fact that my hair resembles that time period?

Not me.

I'm listening to my VERY eclectic iTunes mix right now at the office and I realize that some of the music sounded like a good idea at the time of downloading, but now I'm giggling as I listen to "I Can't Live Without Your Love and Affection" by Nelson, circa 1990... Yes, in the early HS days, I was a big fan of Nelson...and Wilson Phillips...and Paula Abdul.

Latest addition to my house!

As I've been working on the house more and more this year, I started thinking that I wanted a more sophisticated piece in my living room that would house my TV, components, and computer. I thought I'd go with a custom piece, but then I found this cool puzzle piece from C&B. It came yesterday morning (after my rushed breakfast with Krissy-pooh at 7:30am) and then I spent the rest of the day building/organizing. I'm elated and think it looks awesome!

Look JCF, I've got candles and potpourri and pics...very girly, no?!

I also had the draperies and pillows done. I don't think I've put any pics up of them yet, so here they are. Based upon the fact that I custom made the cornice boxes with my dad using fabric from my old living room suite, I wanted to tie it all in with the new look, so I had the new pillows made using inserts from the old pillows. I couldn't be happier and it looks like I have a new custom look! Watch out Trading Spaces, here I come!

2. Bummed - The entire world is married.
3. Excited - My little Krissy-pooh is coming home this weekend and I get to brake my fast with her on Sunday!

PS - Jamie Kay, UPDATE your blog!!! Angie and Emily, create one ASAP!

Sara-Britt's Lingerie Shower

I threw my sweet cousin a lingerie shower and it was a blast. I served champagne cocktails and desserts, all of which were YUMMY! It was so nice to meet so many of her girlfriends and realize that she has a really neat group of young married friends, many of which live in her area and are in her small group. The wedding (October 7) should be a blast!!!

I made her wear a feather boa and a shady bustier that I found at TJ Maxx!

My traditional gift. : )

JJ, SB, and Carlee -- three big, yet hot booties!

I was pretty stoked with the way the invites turned out! Super fun, huh? I was up to my elbows in feathers!!!

I have the BEST florist in town!!! Grower's Direct in Tustin is amazing. I told them that the colors were hot pink and black adn they came up with this gorgeous arrangement and a smaller one that I sent home with Sara-Britt.
