Welcome, 2012!


Here's to a wonderful New Year. 2011 was a fine year, but hoping 2012 will be one of the best! Had a great time ringing in the New Year with some good friends, food, and champagne. One of my many resolutions is to blog more, so hopefully I can at least stick to that one.

Happy New Year!!

{To Do:}

I had such a wonderful Christmas with my family and I am sad that it over and done. Now, onto the next holiday.. I fully intend to have a great time on New Year's Eve, but in the back of my mind I know I have so much to do on my extra day off. I'm not big on resolutions, I will inevitably have the normal, eat healthier, go to an extra yoga class, and be smarter with my money. But, first and foremost, I have to get my house in order! Its a wreck. My presents are still scattered all around, the tree is still up, the fridge is need of cleaning out. I know I will feel so much better once the house if fully cleaned and organized.{I will completely reorganize the linen closet, guest room closet, my closet, and pantry}
{Under the sinks, I like this idea}

{My bathroom is bugging me the most, I have to get all my makeup and products off of my counter, its such an eyesore}

{Last but not least, my jewelry situation is out of control, I picked up some organizing trays to help me out}

Hopefully, I will be able to get some other stuff done, like shopping those after Christmas sales, and spending my gift cards to reward myself.

{Celebrity Crush: Aaron Paul}

I was really sick with a cold this past weekend and even had to use a sick day this week. In turn, I borderline overdosed on Theraflu and watched an incredible amount of Netflix. I have started watching Breaking Bad, which I know has been on for awhile, but I hadn't been on that band wagon. I've heard what its about ( a meth cooking Chemistry teacher) and how amazing it is, but until now, I had no idea. It is ah-mazing. Bryan Cranston is incredible, but Aaron Paul is my latest obsession. He does such an insane job playing a punk of a junkie, but in around season 2, I just got this crazy crush on him. So, I stalked him out..{Pretty darn cute for a meth addict}

{I always watch the Emmy's and I loved that he won last year, even though I had never seen the show, he seemed so genuine}

{ I kinda love him a little dirty like this, too much information?!}

{So effing adorable.}

{Blue Christmas}

I like the idea of non traditional Christmas decorating. Every year my goal is to not use a stitch of red throughout the house. That is insanely harder than it sounds. But, it turns out to be so beautiful, its worth it. This year, I'm doing a blue-ish teal, sorta like Tiffany blue. I think it will be so cute. Here are some inspirations that I found:

Seriously. Can we please just get through the craziness of Thanksgiving before bombarding everyone with lights, music, and decor?? Its too much, too soon. I'm not ready, am I alone on this? It just feels like each year, its earlier and earlier. Thank you Nordstrom, for kinda being snobby and laying it out there. One of the millions of reasons why you are one of my favorite department stores!!

On Display

Normally, I despise open shelving situations. It just seems so messy, and unless you live in an industrial loft, a little pointless. But, I have so many pieces that sit in the pantry or cabinets that need to be on display. The only time you see them is when they are dirty in the sink. These inspirations are examples of open shelving that I love, organized and colorful!{Very cute, love the chalkboard paint behind the shelving}
{Loving the blue/green pieces on display}


{The jadeite ware looks so cute, love the mugs hanging}

{OMG, I can't get past the fridge, chandelier, and stuffed peacock-amazing, but the shelving on either side of the stove is super chic}

{Love the pops of yellow with all the neutrals}

{Even with no open shelving, you can still display collections above and make a statement}

{This reminds me of my Mimi's butler's pantry, so much storage and so beautiful}

Can't wait...

{Oxygen's Tori & Dean Homesweet Hollywood}

They're back! Finally. I am so excited for this. I am obsessed with Tori Spelling and her quirky little family. Their show is back, starting on November 29th. Tori is pregnant with her and Dean's third baby in this season. My DVR is set, I realize I am nerding out here.
