Hunger Hurts . . .

SO . . . It might be cliche to 
quote song lyrics . . . 
I know, I know, 
BUT . . .
Sometimes they say what you are thinking/feeling 
in just the right way!

"I was having a sweet fix of a 
daydream of a boy
Whose reality I knew, was a 
hopeless to be had
But then the dove of hope
began its downward slope
And I believed for a moment that 
my chances were approaching to be grabbed.

Hunger hurts, and I want him 
so bad, oh it kills
Cause I know I'm a mess
he don't wanna clean up . . . "

Paper Bag ~ Fiona Apple

Sometimes . . . you think your chance
is approaching, only to find out it is not.
And it hurts . . . 

But, life moves on and is beautiful!

Time to Quit Being Scared . . .

"A coward is incapable of 
exhibiting love; 
it is the prerogative 
of the brave."

Our Day in Pittsburgh : )

Today, my girls and I went on an adventure in Pittsburgh!

We visited Chatham's campus (Little Kate's alma mater)
Then we went to Shady Side for lunch and shopping!
I got this AMAZING Mac and Cheese At 
Harris Grill Cafe!!!!!

We saw this outfit in the window of Banana Republic, 
and although we are bargain shoppers and would not splurge on it, we had to give it snaps because it is 
"Blair Waldorf Worthy"
(in my words!!!)

I got this hat at Eons, the vintage store.
Totally in the men's department, but I love it!!!

Also, Little Kate got an AMAZING dress to wear to one of our law school dances.  
It looks like something straight off of Mad Men, which is totally Kate's style.

Potter got an adorable fascinator, 
which the fabulous men at the vintage boutique 
promptly bobby pinned in her hair :)

Lastly, I got something I have been 
wanting for a really long time: 
a book journal!

You keep record of all the books you read and write thoughts and ideas you take away from them.  There are also lists to fill out about favorite characters, favorite book destinations, etc.  
I have been playing with it all evening!

It was an all around good day! 
Now I am relaxing and getting ready for the week ahead, it is going to be crazy hectic, as always!!!

Love ya,

Labor Day should be Lazy

And in the spirit of laziness, here is a short, baby blog:

I am OBSESSED with every piece in this outfit.  This would be the outfit Blair Waldorf would wear if she ever decided to "dress down" for a day!!! Waldorf meets law student.  
It doesn't get better than that :)

When the Dog Bites, When the Bee Stings . . .

When I'm feeling sad . . .
I simply remember my favorite things 
and then I don't feel sooooo bad!!!!!

I think this is the perfect time to reflect on
A Few of My Favorite Things!!!!!!!!

1. Bows
I am OBSESSED with bows!!!!!!!
Especially bow headbands!

2. Blair Waldorf
Blair should probably be #1 since she is the one who inspired my love of all things bows!  
She is my fashion icon, her outfits never fail!
On Headbands: "The bow always goes on the right!"

And, She has the greatest accessory of all-time . . .
Chuck Bass!!!!!!!

3. Books and Baths
It is hard to have one without the other,
they are a perfect combination!!!!!!

4. Donuts

5. Johnny and June
World's Real-Life Greatest Couple
They show me that love can overcome many, many obstacles!!!!

6. Lost
Oh, how I miss this show!
Thank goodness I know Jack and Kate 
are together in eternity!!!

7. Larry Fitzgerald and 
The Arizona Cardinals!!!

8. This Random Picture
I saw this in an add on Facebook once
and could not stop laughing!!!!!!
It never ceases to but a smile on my face :)

9. Bromances
I think they are absolutely adorable!!!
I love to see guys bonding, 
enjoying each other's company 
the way us girls always do!!!!!

10. Kurt and Frances Bean Cobain

Some Rooms that Inspire Me :)

I have never been a talented decorator.  Never

However, I can look at things and know what I like.
For instance, in the photo above, I love the way they
have used such a small place to include so many things they like.
I like to use as much wall space as possible 
so I can see as many things that inspire me as possible.
I also love the use of the subtle, 
soft lights in both of these rooms!! 
Hanging them in a circle is an 
unique concept I really like.

This room feels so safe.
The bed looks like a cloud. 
And the lights are the stars.
I could feel nothing but peaceful in this room.

This closet blows my mind.
She actually has a library ladder for her shoes!!!
Carrie Bradshaw would be impressed!!!

This photo is one I would especially like to incorporate into my living space. 
There is little space to work with, and it seems that, like me, she has an overwhelming number of books.
What a creative, unique way to store them!!!!
 I would love to have a bench/couch just like this!!!!

My love of books is so intense, I would be totally okay with this being my living room!!!! :)

Finally, who wouldn't want this adorableness in their dining room?

So, here is some inspiration of what I WANT my home to look like.  Feel free to come help me create and put this vision into action!
