Soo glad it's Friday and soo happy I get to sleep in tomorrow!

I wouldn't mind sleeping in here....

Or this being my bathroom...

Or looking like this...

 Hope you have a great weekend!!

Oxford, MS

When my friend, Tiffany, posted yesterday about Garden & Gun Magazine, it immediately took me back to my days at Ole Miss, in Oxford, MS. Turns out Tiffany grew up with the wife of one of the contributing editors, John Currence,  who is the chef and owner of Oxford's best restaurant {this is a fact, I don't think anyone would argue with this!}  City Grocery. City Grocery is truly one of my favorite restaurants in the world! Their Shrimp & Grits is out of this world... you can actually find the recipe online here;   I just read on their blog they have opened up a new tasting bar in the back of the restaurant. I believe they still have the bar upstairs as well. It has been too long since I have been back to Oxford, but I am hoping to make it back this fall for a football game. First stop; City Grocery!!

While on the topic of Oxford, here are some pics of some of my favorite things there. Hopefully our fall trip will workout, I miss this little town soo much!


The Grove on gameday- nothing like it!

Blondes DO have more fun!

{I don't really believe that.. I know plenty of really fun brunettes}

 BUT how cute is this pic!!? In my opinion the 3 most beautiful blondes in Hollywood!
Excited for an always fun night out with one of my favorite blondes tonight, Lindsey!

Take a Chance!

For those of you who know me well (which I think is most of you reading this blog)... you know this has been the "summer of striped shirts" for me. I can't remember the last time I was this into a trend. I just love the classic simplicity of a striped boat shirt. Today I came across this new website (as it all over blogland today) Chance, a new online store of super cute and well priced boat shirts, dresses, esxpadrilles and accessories, founded by former Kate Spade creative director Julie Leach. ,
Now, I know I need another striped shirt, like I need a hole in the head... Just the other day I almost bought one on sale at Anthropologie - thank you Lauren for pointing out that I basically had the same shirt on!
I probably won't be able to resist though... or maybe I'll got for the dress!

A Friday Favorite

I LOVE wallpaper. I would wallpaper every room in my house if I could, and I fully intend to do so, once I actually own a house! Ok... maybe not EVERY room. One of my absolute favorites is the Zebrine wallpaper by Rose Cummings, and I cannot wait til the day I can actually use it!

Total perfection! Mixed with a starburst mirror and gold framed artwork. This is so inspring to me. I love everything about it (and the whole apartment by Ashley Whittaker) which I will get to another day :). I literally drool looking at it!

A beautiful room by Robin Bell

WOW!!! Mixed with monogrammed and confetti and blue heart shams from D. Porthault! Makes my heart go aflutter.  Love that she papered the celing  as well. I would never get out of bed if this were my room!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Vacation Pics - Fire Island

Here are some pics of the gorgeous Point O'Woods. My camera broke, so I didn't get as many pics as I had hoped, but I am going back for Labor day and hopefully will have a working camera by then! It really was so beautiful and relaxing.
Oh, and we saw a whale, but unfortunately did not get any pics of it!
