monday's post...

well, i didn't make it to grosse pointe this past weekend, turns out my parents went upnorth to the cottage!
the nerve, guess my mother is just going to have to wait a little longer for her present! ha! ha!

so instead i am heading to GP this weekend! can't wait!!! hoping to make it out to the GUCCI store over at somerset and purchase the wallet i want. it's going to be part of my anniversary presents. yeah, i hate surprises! ha! ha! 

oh well, have you seen these over at williams-sonoma?
the lobster is about the size of a 1 lb. lobster and the crab is pretty true to size too! as soon as i saw them, i knew i had to buy them! the lobster for $49.00 and the crab was $29.00. williams-sonoma also has a hermit crab for $19.00 --- i'm sure i will buy it at some point, but really wanted the lobster and crab.

great, all this talk about lobster has me craving lobster! guess i know what's for dinner one night this week. also, for sure next week when my parents come to town! ha! ha! 

i also purchase a duvet and set of shams from pottery barn in the katherine floral pattern.

seriously, i don't need another set of bedding! ha! ha! after all, i already have 8 sets but saw this pattern at pottery barn and had to have it! below is a swatch of the pattern:
oh, speaking of bedding ever wonder why bed displays look so great?
well, yesterday i was at bloomingdales and wondered the same thing! so i took a peak inside and turns out they use two duvet comforters! seriously, i had no clue! ha! ha!

also, a quick reminder that the PREPPY PLATES sale event is going on now over at HAUTELOOK.
still not a member of HAUTELOOK, click HERE. i bought a Set of 2 - Monogrammed Melamine Platters -in my personal favorite pattern - Arbor Navy & Pink.

finally, it's going to be another beautiful day here in chicago! on that note, check out what i'm wearing:
i think it's safe to say "sandal season" is here? well, at least i hope so, ha! ha!

  5. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
