Friday night I had a fancy pants dinner at my friend Rachel's. Other than that, it was a pretty uneventful weekend.
I went to 3 grocery stores on a hunt for peonies. It ended up being a succuessful trip.
Testing out a new Cozamia print. RIP gallery wall.
There was some very unsuccessful estate saleing and flea marketing.
In other happy news, I have a short week. A much needed beach trip is coming up this weekend.

My week from hell is finally ending. All I have to show is 28 voice mails and lots of unanswered emails.
I am in desperate need of a vacation. In typical girl fashion, I enjoy committing to everything and spreading myself so thin I barely end up scraping by. Then I like to complain about how busy I am. One of my favorite posts from Cup of Jo was about being busy. Are you really that busy? Do we act like we are so busy so we can feel important? I like the idea of changing your language to figure out what is really important. Instead of saying you "don't have time." Say "it is not a priority." It will change the way you structure your life.

Wedding season is upon us. I have said this before, but getting dressed is a serious struggle for me.
I love clothes but the older I get the more I want to spend my hard earned dolla bills on stuff for my house.
I have been using another site to rent dresses for a couple of years now. I have no complaints but it seems like every time I go to rent a dress they are never available. I was so excited when I discovered New for the Night. I love their designers. They have a great selection of Tibi and Rebecca Taylor- my favorites.
*This is not a sponsored post. I am just really, really excited about a new rental site.

We are in the final stages of the kitchen renovation. It was wonderful at first watching all the changes happen. Now I just want it to be done. Patience is not one of my best qualities. It still needs some final touches. We are still waiting on all the fun stuff- hardware, rugs, lighting, paint.
I am in desperate need of a vacation.
With all this warm weather Doug and I have had some discussions about vacation homes.
Doug's life literally revolves around fishing. When it gets warm, I just plan on being husband free every weekend. He would love a home by the beach.
I on the other hand, grew up in the mountains. My idea of a dream home is somewhere on a quite lake surrounded by mountains.
I want somewhere I can invite both sets of parents.
Somewhere I can take my kids on the weekends.
Somewhere to take my girlfriends to escape and drink wine.
Obviously, this is far, far in the future plan but I am curious
what do you prefer? Beach or mountains?

-This Mara Hoffman dress has my name written all over it.
-Bobbi Brown beach smells like a mixture of Coppertone and salt water.
-Warm weather makes me want to pull out my aviators.
-I would use this affordable tapestry as a blanket for the beach or a concert.

Our kitchen is pretty close to being done. While we wait I decided our living room needed a little update- nothing serious. I found a couple of new ginger jars at the flea market.
