what do you think?!?!?!

i am spending the weekend back home in grosse pointe! so nice to be back home in michigan for the weekend. hopefully the weather will hold out the rest of the time i'm in town! ....fingers crossed!

anyway, i purchased this oil painting as part of my anniversary present from my hubby. can't wait to get it home and have it framed & matted the way i want it done!
what do you think?

below are the other two paintings i own from the same artist. my newest acquisition will be framed & matted like the two paintings below. sorry, my photos really do these paintings justice.  i promise to post better photos when i get the painting back from the framer!

oh well, hope you all have a wonderful weekend! i'm looking forward to shopping and going out for dinner and drinks with some friends.

it's back! mark your calendars...

what a week and it's only wednesday, sheesh!

yesterday we were in the upper 80's/low 90's in some parts of chicago. unfortunately, at least in chicago with the heat usually comes humidity....YUCK! YUCK! YUCK!

of course, all excited for the heat we had the windows open for the 2nd night in a row! yippeee! however, last night we could have really turned on the air! ugh, talk about a miserable night sleep!

oh well, at least the RDETROIT RED WINGS WON!

so it's all good!

anyway, i just wanted to let you know that VINEYARD VINES is coming back to RUE LA LA! starting sunday, may 15th! can't wait to see what deals they have this time around!

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.

i think it's safe to say "sandal season" is here? well, at least i hope so, ha! ha!
