Our weekend was full. Full of polaroids. Full of “I love America!” outbursts. Full of males in sleeveless shirts. Full of Miss South Dakota spottings. Full of president look alikes. Full of enthusiastic marching. Full of American flag shirts and hats. Full of bikers. Full of schemes of how to make it to the top of the mountain. Full of overheard conversations about the plot of National Treasure 2. Full of moments where I realized North by Northwest was not realistic. It was the best.
I flipped through this book yesterday and fell in love. Popovers. Pretty linens. Fabric shaded picnics. Time to find another $5 to spend to get FREE super saver shipping.
Have a Neil Diamond filled weekend. “We’re coming to America. TODAY!”
Oh, and don’t forget, it’s not too late to enter the Perricone giveaway.
Five Stripes is like a club house for stripe lovers only. They should make a sign that reads, “No polka dots or damask patterns allowed.”

My family recently threw a 90th birthday party for my grandpa. When he entered the room (in a suit!) everybody applauded. I wouldn’t have found that unusual if it wasn’t his birthday. He’s just that kind of guy.
One of my contributions was making pins using various photos of the birthday kid for the family to wear. I just got the reusable pins at Michaels and inserted photos. I think this idea could translate really well for all kinds of celebrations and would be especially cute for a kids birthday party. Who wouldn’t love wearable photos of themselves?
My fave part of this scene is surprisingly not the bunting. It’s the table cloths. I have a new thing for linens.
(I was just about to put ruh roh after that last sentence but then realized it would be completely annoying and I would lose friends.)
After watching North by Northwest again this weekend (so genius) we booked a hotel five miles from Mount Rushmore. I hope you can climb on the faces with a Cary Grant look alike. Eeek, I’m so excited.
Thanks to my friend who shared this idea with me, all of my summer beverages will have a little added watermelon flavor. So much cooler than the straw in the orange idea.
Have the most pleasant of weekends.
Last week I realized the official first day of summer was approaching quickly and I couldn’t just let it pass without some type of celebration. Luckily my friend with the cutest outdoor space (hello picket fence and breezeway) jumped on board and I spent the weekend making ice cream and gathering toppings. It was probably one of the most simple parties I’ve done but one of the most successful. I guess if you put out a bowl of gummy bears and a carafe of hot fudge, your fan base quickly grows. Hello summer. Thanks for coming my way.
Oh, and we didn’t happen to snap photos until the table had been completely attacked. It was originally much prettier. And that hot fudge is still in my fridge being drunk for breakfast.
