L is for Launch

And the Olsen twins are launching Style Mint tomorrow! 

Let me first start by saying that I have a fondness for Mary Kate and Ashley that dates all the way back to the days of Full House and straight to video movies.  I walked around saying, "You got it dude." after nearly everything my mom said.  As the years have gone by my love hasn't dwindled and I will never believe all the gross rumors.  Above all else, their style is on point.  Anyone that says otherwise is insane.  They are gorgeous and unique.

Style Mint is their newest venture.  Basically starting tomorrow you can create a style profile and based on your answers and selections, a few t-shirts witll be styled personally by Mary Kate and Ashley to best fit your trend.  The t-shirts are only $29.99 and shipping is free!  After your first purchase you will officially be a member and each month new t-shirts are recommended to you.  I signed up in advance and got early access today.  I purchased my first Olsen styled t-shirt.

I can't wait to get it and I don't know how I'm going to wait until next months suggestions and it's not even July!

If you haven't joined Pinterest you're not having any fun.  I'm in love with pinning and seeing what other pin on their inspiration boards.  Not to mention if you're looking for decorating, DIY, recipe or fashion ideas, or even if you're just in the mood to sift through some awesome photos you can look no further than Pinterest. Enjoy!

Summer Haze

Holy cow people, I think summer is finally here!  After the longest winter ever, mother nature basically skipped right past spring and fired up summa-time and I couldn't be happier!  THIS is the kind of weather I signed up for!  Bring on the heat and sun.  I don't mind the sweat or the humidity.  You will never hear me complain about heat.  EVER!

*On a side note I have a major pet peeve with people that capitalize the wrong words in sentences when they're trying to make a point.  Capitalize correctly pwease ;) * 

With all this excellent weather, my man piece and I made major strides on the new house.  It looks amazing and I was so happy to have our friends, family and neighbors over for a bbq this weekend.  Planning a small party for people to see the new house really kicked us into high gear.  We refinished just about every piece of furniture we own.  It all looks so good.  And not to toot my own horn, but *toot*toot* because I also hand sewed all of our curtains. ( I know, right?!)  Anyway I really wish I had played photographer a little during the party, but it's tough to be the hostess-with-the-mostest.  I plan to post pictures this week.  (I promised my friend Mrs. Worlow)  Until then, I'll be recovering from a perfect weekend and listening to Adele because I'm currently obsessed with her insanely sick voice & beauty.

Friday Favorites - Movie Nights

There is nothing like a much needed movie night.  A night to relax and cozy up with my husband and fur babies.  It's exactly what I need after the past two weeks.  I have been a crabasaurus rex and I'm already feeling better after a movie and early dinner date with one of my favorite girls, followed by a stack of new releases in my jams on the couch.  A movie night is good for the soul.
