Warm welcome!

This weekend my sister's best friend and her little sister are coming to stay with me. They both are running in the Disney Princess Half Marathon on Sunday. Big snaps to them!

I thought I'd make their stay a happy one with a basket full of snacks, treats and magazines. And of course a little welcome sign on the chalkboard :)

P.S. I made the chalkboard and it was very simple. I bought the frame at Michaels as well as the chalkboard spray. Lay down some newspapers or paper outside and take out the glass part of the frame, lay it on the papers and spray, following the directions on the can. Let it dry 24 hours, put it back in the frame and voila! My mom the cute table runner for me. I love the greek key fabric! Click for a close up view.

Happy feet

Spring is on its way! I can't wait for sundress weather, gorgeous flowers and sandals.

If you're anxious for spring like me, these cute peeptoes are sure to add a punch of springy pink to your wardrobe and help you step into warmer days. They're quite a deal too, at $22 at Old Navy. The countdown is on until we can wear our Lilly's again!

Pink Swap!!

Oh la la! I had the best Pink Swap partner in the whole universe. To say I was spoiled is an understatement. I was spoiled rotten! Preppy 101 has completely outdone herself and deserves the title of Ms. Pink and Green Queen of the Year, for sure! Is she fabulous or what? I couldn't stop grinning for an entire weekend because I was so enamored with my pink pretties. A hundred million thousand thanks to the extremely generous Preppy 101!!!! She is just the best.

Fabulous goodies arrived from The Preppy Princess!

The Preppy Princess wrapping itself is such a treat!

Perfectly pink presents:
Lilly market tote
Lilly water bottle (for dance practice!!)
Lilly notepad
Lilly pencils
Lilly luggage tag
Monogrammed stickers

WOW!! All so fabulous.
I was literally in Lilly heaven.

And if that wasn't enough, Preppy 101 also got me a personalized Nico and LaLa catch-all!!

(Sorry it uploaded sideways! Note: ribbon is covering my last name.)

And it is reversible!!
Love both sides :)

As you can see, I was certainly spoiled to the nines.
Thank you so much Preppy 101 for your extremely generous and thoughtful gifts!
My heartfelt thanks and gratitude for making my day :)

Happy Pink and Green Thursday!

Happy Thursday! This week I am participating in the lovely Trish's Pink and Green Thursday fun.

I have a few pretties to share with you! Last week for work I attended the PGA Show and got to visit with a few of my favorite vendors. My assignment was to write a story on the latest equipment (how about pink golf clubs boss? no?? j/k), but I of course made time to scope out all the prettiest, preppiest, pink and green treasures.

My favorite company year after year is Bloom Designs. It is a fabulous stationery company with the most fun, precious, adorable designs that are golf, tennis, yoga and fashion oriented. The owner Elizabeth is as sweet as can be and really has an eye for design. She was so kind to share a few products with me and I must say my desk at work is looking great! (We've featured Bloom in one of our magazines before and I'm crossing my fingers to get them in again.) Fun fun!

A zebra golf ball on a pink tee!?! Love!!

"Wishing it was tee time" notepad. Adorable!!

"Golf Vacation" luggage tag. Love the name!!

Matching argyle pants and golf shoes stationery!

A happy Pink and Green Thursday to all and do check out Bloom Designs if you are in need of some preppy stationery and gift items :)

Disclaimer: I have not been compensated for this post. It is my personal opinion. However, I did receive the products as a gift.

Lovely lilac

Spring fever has hit me again.
After wandering into Nordstrom Rack on my lunch break, I quickly spied this pretty Longchamp.
I just couldn't say no to the lovely lilac color — oh-so-perfect for spring!
And at half off, a great deal for the taking.

What spring lovelies have caught your eye?
