early february here and there

Monday, February 3, 2014

geez, it's monday again! and it is february! 

are you ready for a new week? i hope you all recovered from last night's super bowl game. can't lie, i cued in just for the half time concert and awesome commercials. it did not disappoint! 

i've got lots to share from last week. i quietly turned older last month. i refused to celebrate but was treated to a fun lunch with girlfriends last thursday. thanks so much to friends who greeted on my birthday and for all the generous gifts. can't thank you all enough! 

we also celebrated chinese new year last friday. all week, my husband got our home ready for 2014, the year of the wooden horse. i don't know the rhyme and reason of feng shui but trust me, it never hurts to follow directions and remedies.

over the weekend, instagram exploded with a new app #waterlogue that got us all obssessed. it turns plain images to watercolor art sketches that really looks like real paintings. your plain images turn into these beautiful paintings and i can't get enough of it!

and also, i'm inviting you all to join KELLY LYDEN, of THE PARTY DRESS and WH HOSTESS and author of the latest STYLISH KIDS' PARTIES book and some of the most talented party stylists and bloggers whom i'll be joining in a PINTEREST and BOOK LAUNCH PARTY this coming Thursday, Feb 6th 8-9 PM CST.

we will be pinning and sharing creative kids party ideas to this PINTEREST BOARD so make sure to follow this board. i will see you there thursday for sure!
