tricked out stable

If my daughter Ryan could move into this stable....she would do it in a heartbeat.  A place to do art projects, and hang out........all while having a horse peering in the door......sign her up.

This tricked out stable belongs to Gwyneth Paltrow + Chris Martin...and is just one of the outlots on their recently purchased property.....'House of Windsor', which is 8,000 s.f.

I'll hang out in the backyard............ ;)

When I woke up on the morning of September 19th, fifteen years ago, it was my wedding day.  15 years.  Wow, I can't believe how quickly it has gone by. 

It's been quite the ride these past 15 years.  Marriage is wonderful, but it takes work to make it successful.  It will push you in ways you've never thought possible, and it will hopefully make you stronger.

Brett is an awesome man, in many ways.  He's confident and doesn't get caught up in the little things...which I have a tendency to do.  He gets my sarcasm, and appreciates it (most days anyway ;)).  He's a wonderful father and has this ability to make Ryan + I laugh at the most ridiculous things.  He's a good egg. ;)

Cheers to 15 years! 


by the way, how hysterical is this picture?...we look like we're teenagers...not 20 somethings...and don't even get me started on the hair, etc.  ;)

Miss Mary Mack...All Dressed in Black.....

The weather is slowly turning cooler, and I couldn't be more thrilled.  A cozy sweater, some tights (if you've ever met me you know I love a good pair of tights!), skirt/ black.  You can't go wrong with classic black.  Either in fashion or in home design elements.......always crisp and chic.

happy belated

Pinned Image

birthday to one of my best friends...Erika.

If you've ever had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with her, you know that she's an amazing woman.  One that I am proud that my daughter gets to call her aunt.

I wish you all things splendid this next year (and always)!.  I love you friend.

holy wet bar

Brett + I are not big drinkers.  Back in the day we tied our fair share on, but we could honestly now go a couple of months sans a cocktail.  I know, we're weirdos. ;)

However,.....this doesn't hold me back from appreciating a beautifully put together bar cart, or in this case wet bar.

Nice work Mr. Gambrel.

What about you guys?  Who has a bar cart or fully stocked bar area?

What's your favorite cocktail to make?

My favorite is a vodka tonic with 2 limes, please. ;)

talk soon

NYFW 101

NYFW starts today.  Once again, I wish I was Lincoln Center taking it all in.  And once again I tell myself that one day I'll get there to experience it myself.

In the meantime, The Man Repeller herself, Leandra Medine created the video that will help all newbies get ready for fashion week.

If it doesn't make you giggle, then I don't know what's wrong with you. ;)


talk soon

from the weekend.....

image 1 - Solange Knowles....she's so cool....and Madewell has some great pieces for fall

image 2 - Breyer's Natural Vanilla with bits of homemade chocolate chip feel yourself getting heavier with every delicious bite

image 3 - New addition to our living room.....

image 4 - Domino does it again...this time with a compilation of their favorite rooms from all of their issues.  Serves as a great source of inspiration, if you're in need of some!

I had a nice, lowkey long weekend. 

Oh, and how could I forget......I stumbled across episodes of The Hills on, of course I had to watch them (and dvr them)....two full seasons (the last two with Lauren Conrad) worth.  I enjoyed every minute of that ridiculousness.

talk soon
