Happy Friday! I am so glad this week is coming to a close. My uncle passed away early this week, so it has been full of sweet memories and definitely some tears. Tonight my husband and I are going to take it easy. Since you can almost always bank on a movie theater being chilly, that sounds like an ideal plan for the evening. Have you all seen anything worthwhile?! Tomorrow we are headed on a short road trip to attend a wedding. Free food and booze is always alright with me šŸ˜‰ I am still unsure of what I might wear…

craving the cooler things

Lately I have been craving a creamy, ice cold milkshake. I am sure it has to do with the record temperatures we are experiencing…or maybe it’s the fact that I have been depriving myself of sweets for a couple of weeks. Well, I say that stops today…and I also say that I am going to blend up this beauty as soon as I get home from work. I mean, I can’t think of a better combination for a milkshake than thisĀ chocolateĀ chip cookie recipe below. The best part about a milkshake? It takes no effort, you just sit and sip!

August is already here, and with it comes a slew of weddings, events, dinner parties and get-togethers. I often find myself scrambling to find something to bring with me to show my appreciation to those who so graciously host us. Wouldnā€™t it be great if we all had a magical closet that was fully stocked with the most perfect host/hostess gifts?!

it’s the freakin’ weekend baby…

I’m about to have me some fun! (Thanks R. Kelly) šŸ˜‰

What are you lovelies up to this weekend? Tonight my hubby and I are going to a party for the olympic opening ceremonies. The plan is to grill out, drink some delicious libations, and hang with great friends. Saturday is a day for housework. I am looking forward to working indoors, since temperatures are supposed to reach 107 degrees.

I hope to make one of these delicious jalapeno margaritas as well…that should cool me off [or not?!] Click here for Food Network’s version of this delicious cocktail.

Have a great weekend!

lusting for lucite

I have been a huge, and I mean HUGE fan of anything lucite/acrylic/clear for a while now. I love it so much, my dining chairs are clear ghost chairs and all of the accessories in my bathroom are acrylic. It’s obvious this trend is now mainstream, and for a good reason.

So tell me, do you have an acrylic obsession? I would love to have any of the above incorporated into my home.

an array of craze

I often find myself wishing I had a place to dump my PinterestĀ Pinboards and things that inspire me on a day-to-day basis. After procrastinating long enough…an array of craze was born. This is a place where I will share a variety of my current obsessions, or my “array of crazes”. I hope you have fun following along!

First up…

Who isn’t currently crazy about chevron? This stunning piece of art is by Jennifer Moreman,Ā and is available here on her Etsy shop.
