Monday, My Day



Happy Lundi Gras, everyone! We spent a few days in Mobile last week enjoying Mardi Gras celebrations. My second cousin (my mom's cousin), was king of one of the crews in Mobile, so we got all dolled up and spent the evening dancing the night away at his ball. I've been going to Mardi Gras for as long as I can remember, so to see my cousin be king of a crew was really special for me. We stayed in the cutest AirBnB in the Oakleigh District which happens to be walking distance to some of our favorite Mobile restaurants. It was such a great way to spend a few days with family. Everyone was in great spirits, and we even got to spend a few days with my grandparents. Needless to say, it was an awesome end to February. 

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras day, and while I won't be in Mobile to celebrate, I'll definitely be celebrating from afar. I picked up some adorable cookies from Ellen Jay that will be just the right thing for tomorrow. I might even wear a strand or two of beads. You never can tell. 

Links & Happenings

Since we were out of town for a few days, we got to come home to some pretty amazing surprises with the renovation. Our house is completely painted, and we officially have drywall! WOO! 

This week, I have several meetings for the house, but I'm most excited to meet with my friend and talented interior designer, Maggie Griffin to start chatting decor. 

One of the things I'm hoping to chat with Maggie about is adding this amazing Schumacher wallpaper to our laundry room. After months of ignoring my requests, he husband gave me the go ahead last night! 

Have you guys visited Hazen recently? This little jewelry company sure is making some big statements. I'm pretty much obsessed with their mother of pearl nugget necklace

A few weeks ago, I took a candle making class at Candlefish. For just $45, I walked away with two deliciously scented candles. I'll be talking about the experience more on the blog soon, so stay tuned! 

Have y'all heard about 60 Days In? The reality series allows civilians to go under cover at some of the country's jails. This season, it's in Atlanta's largest jail. I'm not sure how I feel about the show, but I am intrigued. 

I sadly didn't get to watch the Oscars last night, but from what little coverage I did see, I'm pretty much obsessed with Busy Phillips' dress. Who else was looking great?!

Palm Springs in Pictures




If there is one thing that I can say about my trip to Palm Springs, it's that is was most definitely a series of Kodak moments. Everywhere I turned, I was completely enamored by what I saw. Literally, from the moment I got off the plane, I gasped. 

Actually, let's chat about the Palm Springs airport for a second. Y'all. The airport is outside! I've been to a few open air airports, but the Palm Springs one takes the cake. It truly captures the spirit of Palm Springs - and even reminded me of the Jetsons just a little bit - in the best way possible. 

Palm Springs had such a unique vibe, and it's definitely worth a stop if you're in the area. I would have loved to see more of the mid-century modern architecture and vintage shops, but I still managed to capture how colorful the town is in just a few photos. Here's a photo diary of a 3-day trip to Palm Springs. Enjoy it!
