Sno-caps, a must have for the movies



The couch we ordered matches the red in this set of vases from Pier 1. The colors are a little weird from the camera flash, but I think this will be the color scheme for that room.

"The King of Hollywood"

Clark Gable's star at the San Carlos Hotel

Gardening Gloves

My new gardening gloves

The last three things Adam has given me after saying "I bought you a present!" are: these gloves, a snow shovel, and a water heater. Well, he didn't actually give me the water heater, but he told me it was a present.

First meal in the new house


I didn't bother taking a non-blurry picture, because I was hungry.

Baby Shower Brunch

My Mom made the cutest table centerpieces. The flowers in the pots are made out of rolled up baby socks and onesies. I got the daisy pops from Smeeks for each place setting.

I catered a baby shower today for a family friend's cousin. I did a few hor d'oeuvres and these cupcakes. I made the little flags with toothpicks and japanese masking tape.

Adam just hit his head!



Pam's daughter, Shannon, and her husband Michael, are having their second baby next month. We're having a family brunch/baby shower, to celebrate, on Sunday. I got this onesie at Frances. So adorable!

Oscar Party Prize

Georganne had Oscar trivia questions at her party. I got one right and won this gold crocodile. He opens up, he's a treasure chest.

New fridge

Pretty new refrigerator

I loved this refrigerator, until I realized how it shows EVERY SINGLE FINGERPRINT.

Birthday Brunch

Today is Georganne's birthday. Cass and I surprised her with a birthday brunch at our apartment. We had asparagus and red pepper frittata, tossed green salad, fruit, croissants and brioche toast with mascarpone cheese and boysenberry preserves...and of course, mimosas! She's hosting an Oscar party tonight at her house! Can't wait!
