Weekend Update

Ha, this picture of Dell Harper and her friend SiSi just cracks me up.  SiSi had skipped her afternoon nap at the Easter Egg hunt on Saturday, and was just not feeling it.  Dell Harper looks a cross between concerned, and pure disdain at the tears.

 Miss Priss was not a fan of the Easter Bunny, but greatly enjoyed the children's buffet afterwards.  I ate a buffet cheeseburger and fries without conjunction, and bit my tongue as my bib-less child clad in white and pale pink shared an ice cream sundae with chocolate sauce with her Granddaddy.

 My eye is doing much better, but I am in glasses until Wednesday.  I don't mind wearing my glasses, except for the fact that I don't have prescription sunglasses.  I am sensitive to light in general, and even more so with the infection, so I have been putting my huge Target shades on over my glasses, cataract patient style.

Morgan's dad came in from Asheville, and joined us for Easter Bunny, and church the next morning.  I was teaching Sunday School, so they got Dell Harper dressed and ready for church.  She looked perfect!  I was glancing down the hall with trepidation, awaiting their arrival, but she had on shoes, tights, the right dress, and a cardigan!  And her sippy cup and Cheerios!  I was so impressed.  Ha!  It's the little things, you know?

Afterwards, we all headed to my parents, where we had the menu that was in March's Southern Living.  Mama made the best ham I have ever had.  I LOVE ham, so this is high praise indeed, as I have consumed a lot of ham in my 31 years.  Mmmm, the cornmeal chive biscuits?  I ate two, then I had my eye on the measly two leftover.  By the time I made way to snatch them, they had mysteriously disappeared.  I contributed the healthier Asparagus, Orange and Lentil Salad, which to be quite frank, sounded rather bizarre, but was fresh, delicious and an excellent foil to the heavier dishes.

This is before I tossed it- I made everything the night before, and just added the lettuces right before serving.

Also, I have wallpaper pictures for you!  Excuse the quickly taken iPhone pictures- I snapped a couple as I got Miss Priss down for her nap at my parents'.

That's the old wallpaper I ruined 15-16 years ago. I still love the big old fashioned blooms.

 You can check out the blue tile in all it's glory.

Here is the marvelous update that my interior designer friend found for the bathroom.  I gasped when I saw it (I tend to have rather dramatic reactions, but isn't it just gorgeous?).

I can't wait for it to be installed!

In the other bathroom, I wanted y'all to check out the old eighties wallpaper that has been unearthed.
 My sister in law and I are digging it, and my mom is shuddering in remembrance.  She does not get out love of metallic wallpaper, as she lived has lived through its vogue a couple times now, I suppose.

I am still rooting for some kind of wallpaper here- something to tie that wild tile together.  I am loving the reversion to the old mosaic floor though!

Finally, finishing up the iPhone portion of this post, I scored this awesome jacket at Steinmart a couple weeks ago.  I would wear this outfit every night if I could- I love it.  Especially since it is impossible to dress with this type of weather.  It was a long week, and I was ready to sport my cool Steinmart jacket and drink lots of wine with the girls.

If anyone managed to make it to the end here, I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I have actually downloaded pictures from my camera, and have several recipes and more home tour coming up this week.


  1. This is why I love your blog -- cute baby pics, great recipes, fun home decor, and an OOTD that I'd kill for. :)

  2. Jacket love. DH love. SS refuses to drink out of a straw! She just dribbles it all out.
    We had some actual walking this weekend. It was exciting. That first picture is hilarious!

  3. I love that jacket and I really miss Stein Mart! She is so cute in her easter dress!

  4. I saw this post last night and fell in love with that jacket! So in love I stopped by Stein Mart after work today to pick one up for myself! Thanks for posting!

    I really enjoy your blog. Have a good weekend!

  5. You always look absolutely adorable. Love that jacket! And I'm impressed that your husband pulled off DH's Easter outfit. I don't know that mine could manage... ;)


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
