Drove to work this morning feeling like this:


I’ve popped some meds and I’m drinking my coffee, so hopefully I’ve avoided a migraine. Ugh. I’m sooooooooooo glad it’s FRIDAY!

My beautiful friend NJ is expecting her third baby this June. They will be blessed with a baby boy! She picked out THE cutest theme for his nursery…MONKEYS!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!! Of course being design obsessed as I am, I immediately made her this inspiration board!

NJ picked out the adorable Mod Monkey theme from Babies R US, then I took the ball and ran with it. It’s just so much fun! I love the pale green, chocolate brown and sand colors of the quilt and other accessories.


Around the border from the top left: pale green palette color, diaper bag, changing table caddy, wicker rocking chair, upside down monkey, polka-dot pillow, cute green bag with a cat that looks like theirs, diaper cover, organic sheets, sand color palette color, organic hat, brown and sand color tote, monkey wall decalsnest, brown palette color, brown toile, sweet booties, baby bed with monkey quilt and wooden rocking horse.

My dear Greek friend MM is madly gladly getting prepared for her son’s wedding in Key West. Part of the Greek wedding tradition is to fill little tulle bags with 5 sugar coated almonds to celebrate and give best wishes to the bride and groom. These little bags of goodness are called koufetta.  MM had the cute idea of adding a personalized sea shell (beach theme) to the outside of each little bag.

We’ve been helping her stuff, thread, pull and tie the little bags during our lunch hour this week! How cute are these?? I wanna be Greek!

Since Louie is “Bad to the Bone”, he tends to get most of my attention, but I have another dear fur-baby…her name is Lizzie, or as I like to call her: Lizzie Ta-lu-lu.


Above is the gorgeous face I came home to.

Later the same day…I see TWO lazy babies in the sun…




…sick as a dog March 2, 2009

There is about nothing I hate more than being sick. I’m sick as a dog right now. I haven’t had a head cold in years and years. It’s most unpleasant. I’m off to blow my nose now. *sigh*
