Treat Day: English Crumpets

My grandma called yesterday to let me know she was having a Royal Watch Tea Party with all of her girlfriends.  I thought it was so darling! I sent her this recipe from Always with Butter for crumpets (the American equivalent to english muffins). They look delicious! I hope you enjoy your tea party, grandma.

Happy Friday: A Fairytale Wedding

This honestly was a fairytale wedding.  I think my brain knew what was happening at 3am this morning because for some reason I hopped out of bed like it was time for work. Needless to say, I saw the whole fairytale pan out.  The dress, the lace overlay…to die for. Hope everyone has a royally wonderful Friday!

Are You Ready?

I am excited to watch the Royal Wedding this weekend, although I am not one of those crazy fanatics that knows all the ins and outs of the Royal family and I may even have to record it, I don’t know if 4am is in the cards for me! Do you have plans for a fun Royal Watch Party?

Brilliant Bicycles

Aren’t these darling? I have been wanting to get a cute bicycle for a while now but have realized I do not have much time to ride it so maybe a future purchase. Until then.. I can still look, right?

An Easter Brunch

This is the first year I won’t be going home for Easter, so I thought I would throw my own Easter brunch.  Here is my inspiration for the decorations and table. I really love the muted colored eggs. They seem to be a little more sophisticated than the pastel colors that are normally associated with Easter.

Spring Has Sprung

Spring has finally sprung in Kansas City. Tulips are blooming everywhere I turn and I am loving every bit of it.  However, I think the 80 degree weather is bitter sweet…snow in the forecast for the weekend. I am definitely ready to pack up the sweaters and bring out the floral sun dresses.

3 Years


This weekend Patrick and I celebrated three years together.  Man, it has been fun! From Italy to Belize, Vail to Scottsdale, and everything else in between; we have had some great memories and laughs. I can’t wait to see what the future brings!  Love you.

The Southern Belle

Reese Witherspoon ties the knot again! She is one of my favorite actresses because of her down to earth persona and her girl next door look. Her hubby, agent Jim Toth is very easy on the eyes too.  The wedding happened in Ojai, California where Reese resides.  The rolling hills and vineyards in Ojai make for the perfect wedding spot.
