Vintage Blue Bird

Not sure about this nail color?  Do you think I'm too old to be wearing this shade?  Yeah, me neither! He he.  After seeing Kierra's drugstore picks, I was inspired to try a new summer hue on my nails.  It is a little bright, but it's starting to 'stick'.

I just love this whimsy top that I scored at 50% off at Talbots in the Williamsburg Outlets.  With the most delicate ruffles and little blue birds in the pattern, it is very light and feminine.  (Probably because I am far from a delicate little blue bird)! 

Nails: Revlon Top Speed, Jade
Top: Talbots
Watch: Michael Kors

Patent leather red shoes: Macy's
Silk white button up: INC
Bangeled necklace: Lia Sophia

Notice how some days (not usually Mondays) you feel more alert, focused, and productive?  I love those days!  This morning I woke up early to practice my Yoga which was followed by 2 kids eager to hop out of bed with the excitment of the 1st day of camp.  Lunches made, backpacks ready, and a sweet note from the husband wishing us a good day. The husband leaves a little after the sun comes up, poor guy.  Luckily, he gets to come home to this cougar in cheetah print!  (tee hee- i do crack myself up!) 
Heres to a productive Tuesday!

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

It's kind of a hit or miss with my A & A Sydney inspired postings, but today seemed to fit.  These cute shoes are the only thing that got me through the day - the certainly didn't visit my desktop long. 

  • Sitting in a Strategic Growth Meeting with a bunch of powersuits and feeling totally out of my league (so much to learn in my new position).  I think I contributed 1 time with a total of 7 words in 1.5 hours...yeah, lame!
  • The fact that my last Awkward and Awesome post taught me that I have misspelled awkward since the 2nd grade. really? 2 w's? who knew?
  • Writing 5:30 on my son's preschool sign-in sheet knowing full well that is was 5:31pm (1 minute late will cost you a cool $30).  I hate being THAT mom!
  • Doing the mental rundown of the wine rack, at home, from my office at 3:30...yep, it was that kind of day. The kind where your clients calls you in for a creative brainstorming meeting at 4:45pm (hence the tiny white lie above).
  • Just realizing that if my boss, preschool director, or 2nd grade teacher follow my blog, [which I am so certain they do religiously] I may have some 'splainin to do!
  • My beautiful deck... with flowers blooming...overlooking the pond... and #16's sunset  
  • This fragrant Layer Cake Primivito that I is helping me author this post :)
  • A just-around-the-corner Friday/Shortday that I will be making up some quality time with that last standing preschool kiddo.
  • Snagging a deal on a new Lacoste watch for the hubs Father's Day present, and actually ordering in time to avoid rush shipping charges (are you getting the sense that I am always behind schedule - yeah you're sensing right.)
  • My Drunk Kitchen new Episode #8.  If you haven't experience the gourmet techniques of Ms. Harto yet, tune in for some delish humor-and a personally oddly familiar scene-

New Specs

My signature look has underwent a minor adjustment! What do you think of my new 80's retro spectacles?

Mohitos & Spikes

We have been playing a lot of golf so far this summer.  As a golf widow I find golf only mindly amusing and mostly frustrating. However, with the right shoes (a sport that requires a new pair of shoes usually hooks me) and a refreshing cocktail, I can be persuaded to hit the links with my friends and hubby from time to time.  Here is my newest/simplified cockatil collaboration that I whipped up for our couples Wine & Whiff League!
•1/2 lime   •1 cup ice   •2 oz. vodka   •4 oz. diet tonic   •mint garnish/flair

A couple other accessories I am in love with. Can you tell who the husband is sponsored by? Yep, I'm all about the freebies!

Okay, DISCLAIMER: Titleist were our only matching visors...:-)

Lookie what I made

(that's right hair rollers are still in, it's kinda my signature look!)
Before my youngest son was born I had a lot more time to sew and create and design (oh sigh!).  I still enjoy my sewing projects and mostly make things for others.  I found this blue skirt way back in the last row of my closet and decided it was the perfect compliment to this bargain top I bought as a swim cover up!  Now I am work-ready in a LH original.
