La jolla

Can you forgive me for not posting today? We are in La Jolla celebrating our anniversary. So far we had breakfast in bed, flowers delivered, massages at the spa and now we're walking around town. It's been perfect! Rilo also happens to love the beach so that's a plus! Tomorrow I'll be back with pictures from our garden party! Can't wait to share!


Easter Egg Hunt

Friday morning, Jenna and Kate hosted the perfect Easter Egg Hunt for all the kids. There was a crepe bar, with all the great toppings, chocolate milk and little OJ's for brunch. Then the kids ran around a perfectly landscaped yard looking for eggs. Except for Rilo, who didn't quite get it yet. She just ran up and down this little bridge and followed the fluffy white dog. Such a great event!


Don't worry, I won't be wearing that horribly unflattering outfit again! Big thanks to Nicole for these images since my camera battery died before I could even take one picture!


Tasty Treats

Summer is coming and I'm motivated to eat healthy and start going to the gym again. I always feel so good when I'm doing the things I should be doing to keep my body healthy. BUT, I have a BIG, BIG weakness for sweets. And one of my Pinterest boards isn't helping. I keep pinning the most amazing treats and now I'm dying to make all of them. Everything in moderation, right?!

Bijou Bijou Bijou

No Collected series today, check back next Friday. Today and tomorrow I'll be in and out of Bijou. I was there this morning helping Melanie setup and let me tell you, I am SO so excited to go back and shop! Seriously, it's better than ever over there, full to the brim of the best handmade stuff around. Hope to see you there!


Guest Post

Yesterday I had the chance to guest post for Caroline over at Armelle. She just had a cute little boy and has been having some bloggers fill in for her. To see what's inside my Spring in a Box kit, head on over to Armelle!



Little Elyse was turning one, so we took some photos of her and a few with her siblings. These cute kids belong to my best friend's sister. They were such good sports...it was freezing! And the day before it had been in the 70s. I don't think any of us were expecting that chilly morning air. But they smiled anyway!

Safe to say she was loving it!


Bijou Market

It's that time again! Bijou is back and I'm so excited! This Friday and Saturday I plan on shopping my heart out. There are a few things I'm really excited about!
First up, new colors of the Freshly Picked moccasins. Rilo wears her moccasins about every other day. I need to pick up at least 1 or 2 more pairs!

I like sweet little bows like this. If only Rilo's hair would grow a little faster...


I was just talking with Melanie and she was telling me about some new prints she's going to be selling. They are going to be fantastic. I can't wait to add a few to my gallery wall.

And here is what I'm most looking forward to checking out...All the wooden goodies from Wee Waldorf. I have a thing for wooden toys, especially cute/clever wooden ones.

See you there!! And if you're not in the area, be sure to check out the online shops of all the vendors!


Paint Chip Easter Egg Garland

Did you see this fantastic Easter project from Modern Parents, Messy Kids and then from Heather of the Coterie? So clever and this has to be one of the few Easter decorations I've seen and liked!
