Love It Want It

You have no idea how badly I want to build a house. Do you ever visit HOUZZ? I do. A lot.
For my powder bath I would do some exposed pipe and a glamorous mirror like the one you see in the pic below. Of course my guests would enjoy an eclectic touch with a pop of color. I'm thinking in the wallpaper. Yes. Wallpaper. It's back ya'll.

What would my house look like? So glad you ask. Well...let me tell you I'm pretty much obsessed with a majority of gorgeous homes built by John Witt of Witt Construction. The  details added to the designs are always stunning. See below. You can see more, HERE.

I really really want these earrings. They make me laugh and would look uber cute with the chambray ruffled shirt I have on now! Found HERE. Kinda funny...These are also the colors in our master bedroom. I might see if I can find a a better deal.

Pinch Me

No, not really. Don't pinch me.  Is it me or does it look like George had his cheeks pinched too much as a kid? Hope you're wearing green or I will get you. Yes. I am one of those people.

Color Me Green

Green it is. I'm painting one of our guest beds green. I've been teetering the idea for a bit now and I'm really going to do it. What color green? Grass green. With the spirit of St. Patty's Day, I decided it would be a prime opportunity to share my greenius idea with you all! Can't wait to share a pic with you! I hope to take the plunge this wknd-1st I must get back home! I have been in Charlotte, NC...but I'm headed home now errr trying anyway...It's been a long short week for me. Too much travel in a short time and wishing I had a bit more time here to see the sights or been able to bump into the Bachelor winner in her hometown! So glad Emily won:)
Here's the green I'm shooting for:

Holy Guacamole

Is it Summer yet?! I would like to serve cocktails on my patio with these super cute pom pom cocktail napkins found HERE.

They come in a few different color and this site offers a ton of napkins in other adorable designs. What's your fav?

These bad boys have a new home in my closet, but currently they are on my feet. The high today is 54 degrees so I wore them sock-less. Erin fact: Ballet flats and heels tend to give me cold clammy feet in our cold office. I keep 3 types of socks in my desk drawer for clammy emergencies and I always have my fav ankle fluffy socks in my briefcase. A girl needs comfort after a long day of being on her feet. If I have a long drive from a trade show back to my hotel or feeling clammy on the plane-I grab my socks! True stroy.

O Pete

For the love of Pete. Did I mentioned that someone backed into my car in the parking lot over the weekend? Well. They did. I was stopped blaring my horn and it did no good. Luckily, the damage is minor and the other driver's adjuster is surprisingly eager to close the claim. I hope it pans out in my favor and the dude that hit me doesn't change his story. To be cont'd.

Update: Adjuster cut me(Well. Lee since I'm in Pitt...) a check and accepted liability. Woot Woot!

Pant Hall

I bumped into the mall on Sunday to hopefully find a pair of black slacks. I've washed, dry cleaned and worn my old pair out. This wasn't my first time to find a replacement so by now you can imagine that I am in need of a replacement. I have such a hard time finding slacks. Really. I'm picky about the fit and length. Anywayzzzz...I have a lot of work travel ahead of me this month (currently in Pittsburgh) and a lot of trade shows to network. I was seconds away from turning around and reluctantly buying a pair of pants that I didn't love and go have them altered. Lucky for me, I held out and peeked into the Gap first. Now-I am in pant love with TWO A-mazing deals I snatched.

Gap's Tuxedo Perfect Trouser Pant (Originally $69.50-Erin scored for $10.71)

GAP's Always Skinny Black Jean (Originally $69.50-Erin scored for $11.33)

Antique Shop Stop

I have been doing some antique/thrift shopping and man...I really like it. I wish I had unlimited funds so I could have bought this mosaic turquoise head. haha Isn't is beautiful. Sorry you don't have the fully monty shiny effect that I got in the store. (Camera phone pic again.) It was $750 and I hear that is a bargain??? Maybe another day.

I found this fab mirror too. I've been seeing its cousins all over blog world. Like on Young House Love! I didn't buy it either and now I'm thinking about changing my mind. I see myself painting this a funky color. Maybe neon something and putting it in my entryway...maybe.

Sooo...I really have no excise for my recent hiatus from you dear blog world. I feel like a Girl Scout getting prepared for her next adventure or is that Boy Scouts that are always prepared? Anyway. I'm busy working on a big project, but I have random goodies for you all today! One. My sister cousin got a new puppy! Teacup Yorkie. Check Sophie out:
Two. Lee and I like to order Chinese takeout from a yummy place close to our home. Not a fan of seeing a cat on the counter to greet me...
Three. Saw some fabulous trunks on my recent trip to Hobby Lobby. Priced very nicely, I had a hard time walking away. I know I know. Leave me alone. I'm not sure if I have a spot for them. You go buy one!
They look a lot like Restoration Hardware's Mayfair style, huh?! See HERE. And your welcome.
