These are a few of my favorite things....West Elm

So I have a new found love for West Elm. I have always liked them but they have come out with some AMAZING new items. Seriously...I could design a whole room around their pillows. 
I love it. Below are some of my favorite ones...

{Dining Table & Chairs, Dinnerware, Napkins, Fossil Print Pillows,
Silk Pouf, Stork Silk Pillow, Abstract Giraffe, Vases}
Seriously...That dining room table needs to find its way into my life!
All these items can be found on West Elm along with a ton of other fabulous things.

On the hunt for Dining Room chairs...

So right now...my dining table is in great condition and the perfect size for out house. The chairs although are FALLING APART! Everytime you sit in one you have to brace your self and say a quick prayer that it doesn't not collapse on you. =) My husband can usually fix anything but these have been through so many people that they are beyond help. 

So needless to say I am on the hunt for new chairs. I plan on refinishing the table pretty soon. 

This is the chair I am looking at. Reasons I like it...

#1. They are little and the perfect size for our under 900 S/F home. =)
#2. It got terrific reviews and ratings from previous buyers
#3. They are in my price range.
#4. They have some soft fun curves in them and I love the pierced splat on the back.
#5. They are a little country without going overboard. But if you saw where I live and the style of my house you would say country/cottage would be VERY appropriate. Haha. 

Here are some pictures of the chairs in other peoples homes. 
I love them more every time I see them.

By the way...my table looks almost exactly like this one in black.

What do you think? 
Keep looking or go for it?!

Help please!......

Ok everyone! I need your help!
My Best Friend is getting married and so I am helping out a little...but this bouquet is the one she wants. Isn't it beautiful?!

She has such good style but the part I need help on is figuring out what in the world that blue aqua flower thing is by the coral peony? I have NEVER seen it before and her main colors are aqua and coral.

 What is it?! Please leave a comment with ideas. No suggestion is stupid cause I have searched forever to find it. So anything will help.

My favorite 2012 calendars off Etsy

So I have been looking at all the fun calendars on Etsy latley since its a new year and all.
I have put together a few of my favorites below. I have always been a lover of calendars and planners and these definitely take that love to a whole new level.

Whenever I buy a calendar I always make sure that I could maybe use the artwork later to put in a frame. That way it is still useful after the year is up. You could also scrapbook with them too...

Which one is your favorite?!

Happy New Year: The best is yet to come!


I hope everyone had a terrific Christmas & New Years. Our two weeks consisted of multiple parties, Christmas, Family Reunions, family from out of town visiting and New Years!

Love all the festivities but I am so excited to get going on my goals. 
The word for this years goals is

"We are what we repeatedly do. 
Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."

All of our goals this year revolve around discipline. Bed times, health, study, business, family time, and TIME management. We have decided that to get where my husband and I want to go we have to be disciplined in all aspects of our life. Even the little things.
We have some excited thing planned for this coming year already; weddings, anniversaries, trips. 
So here is to a great year...


What are some of your goals/plans for the year?!
