Daily Covet: Glass Table Lamps

I am nesting.  But not in the nursery department.

I also have Spring Fever, which makes me want to liven things up around my house.

My living room has been a tough room for a long time.  It’s always felt “unfinished.”  I have finally decided to pay some attention to it.  I started with the easy part.  Pillows!

We added an adorable little chest, which we painted bright turquoise against our paler blue walls.  It’s got gold accents, which look great against our straw-colored sofa.

Now, I’m wanting to update lighting.  I want something a little more modern to juxtapose with our mostly French-style antiques.  I think after scouring site after site for lighting that is fabulous, but also affordable (really?  $700 for lamps?!), I have finally found what I’m looking for… enter Pepita glass lamps from you’ll never guess where!

Daily Covet: J.Crew Bikini

Bikinis?

My family is tossing around ideas about what to do for Spring Break.

My son asked if we could go on a Disney cruise, and followed that up with a trip to Mexico.

While I don’t see our expectant-baby budget taking us on an exotic excursion, we are trying to find someplace warm and inviting stateside.

This means I’ll be on the hunt for warm-weather clothes that will be pool (or beach) ready by March!

I found this J.Crew bikini today.  And while I’m not super thrilled about my baby bump in a bikini, a beige baby bump is better than a white one once summer rolls around, right?!

Plus, this bikini from J.Crew has a fabulous print in two of my fave colors… blue and more blue!

Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl XLVII:  Which will you wear?   Er… root for?

New Orleans will host this year’s Super Bowl.  My family and I will spend our time watching at some friends’ house.  And by “watching,” I mean “eating” our way through four quarters of football.

I do love football, but I have to say I’m more excited about the party and wearing team colors!

I was raised on the San Francisco 49’ers and my husband and I lived in the Bay Area for five years… so it’s only natural that we would be rooting for maroon and gold.

On the flip side, I adore the Ravens colors and have far more in my wardrobe to cheer them on.  Is that reason enough to change teams?

Neh.
