Join Me in celebrating everyday!

The Sunday Simmer

I have had a lot of time to catch up on my favorite blogs this week after falling ill again, which means I have so much inspiration to share with you, but first…

A reader asked how I maintain a clean home…you can read all my secrets here.

natural fall decorating ideas

I also baked a cake for a cause.

You can find lots of Valentine’s Day ideas including heart shaped cookie cakes and how to make heart ravioli with wonton wrappers in just 10 minutes here!

This Ladurée inspired birthday party. Oh to be one again! I’d love to recreate this for my girls. Are they getting too old? Can’t be, because I want to play there!

This kitchen island makes my heart skip a beat.

Universal

The girls and I watched Harry and the Hendersons last night and I was once again reminded, that 80’s movies had pretty, well designed homes and are so fun to watch all over again. Side note: a couple weeks ago we watched Uncle Buck with the girls and I realized that tv ratings have changed a lot since I was a child and well, it’s not suitable for children, but a must see again for adults!

The DIY Home Planner designed by my friend KariAnne is now available – it’s filled to the brim in incredible decorating advice, quick tips, has pockets for paint chips and so much more!

Sugar and Cloth

I’m still swooning over Sugar and Cloth’s new party line…these flowers have inspired me to take flower arranging to a whole new level this year. Ashley and Jared set the bar high!

Brandi Carlile made my week with a first listen of her new album {available the 16th} and I just read John Prine’s Tiny Desk Concert will be available soon!

The girls and I made Bubble Gum Ice Cream over the weekend so I could relive my childhood. They not only make excellent taste testers, but made it themselves with very little assistance! Recipe and video coming soon!

If you’ve seen something you’re excited about this week, please share!
