Is it bad that I still really love Lilly?

My mother is an avid Lilly Pulitzer wearer... and hence i have always loved and appreciated its vintage feel. It has been years since I have owned anything lilly,but this past weekend my love for all things Lilly was reignited. I have since purchased two new lilly pieces and have to say they are pretty darn cute... So here is the question... Am I past the point of making Lilly look Cute? Can I pull it off?... When are you too old to sport Lilly Pulitzer?

Still here.. sort of

I am still here... school is winding down this week... which for a title I, federally funded school, means crap tons of paperwork.
My 10 kids that have shown up for school have been real troopers.. organizing books, cleaning out cabinets, filing papers, and doing seat work(if someone can't control themselves)
I feel like they should each be holding a sign that says.... will work, for candy.
That is truthfully how we will make it through the rest of the week. Candy Candy and more Candy!
3 more days.
I do have lots of fun things to look forward to this summer... which starts Friday!
1. Two wonderful friends getting married on Saturday
2. My wonderful birthday party planned by the world's greatest BFF.
3. Spending times with my two little cuddle bugs! ( who btw love their Aunt May May more than anyone else)
4. Fun time with friends who are in town for the summer
5. A visit from these clowns in a few weeks
6. Going to visit these clowns a few weeks after that!
7. Time in NOLA
8. Time with the Fam
9.Time at the Lake
10. TIME.......
Happy almost summer to everyone!!!
I can't believe I have made it another year!

Accessories- I am in love with...

These are few accessories that i have been loving lately. Some of these things i have had a while and some are new additions. This watch is awesome! It goes with everything and makes your arms look tanner because of its light color.
Don't you just love this little boat tote. I keep finding reasons to use it because it just makes me so darn happy!
I couldn't actually find the color that i have in these shoes(coral),but i wear these almost every day to school. They are comfortable and trendy. I have been wanting a fun big ring and this is just the ticket. It has not actually arrived yet, so lets hope it lives up to the pictures.

My initial necklace i bought back around christmas. I wear it all the time. Lauren Conrad "LC" has one also. So by default i am cool. Right?

Just a few fun things i have been sporting lately! Hope everyone is having a marvelous monday!

Birthday Presents....

My wonderful amazing do-gooder sister's birthday is in a couple of weeks. She is in her residency in New Orleans and so by default does not have a lot of free time. She graced us with her presence for a couple of days last week and we had a spectacular time spending my parents money..... We shopped..... we ate...... we laughed..... and by the end of our couple of days together we fought( isn't that what sisters do?). I have been racking my brain trying to think of a creative birthday present for Katie and it finally dawned on me..... I would redecorate her bedroom for her birthday. Katie has had the same bedding since she started medical school 5 years ago and to say that it has seen its better days would be an understatement. I poured through my online fabric resources and assembled a sophisticated, calming, peaceful bedroom., just what the doctor ordered(ha!). The following pictures are of the fabric samples and such. She will have take a picture so we can all see the final product.

Bed skirt and Euro Shams made from this....

With this trim....

And this quilt in White.....
And this Duvet with a porcelain blue dot trim.

And these lamps....

Spring obsessions

Due to some body changes and such.. i am having to buy a whole new spring wardrobe... which is well really fun for the most part ( especially when the p-units are funding it). I tried to stay on the cheap for most things.
Here are my steals from oldnavy. These pants are awesome.. i own them in pink, gray, white, and dark denim... I think they are like $15.00 this week. Can't beat that.

This dress is like $12.00 right now and i own it gray, pink, and teal. It is so comfortable and looks really awesome belted.
The following images are my recent purchases from Mecca( anthropologie). They are all awesome as per usual.

Ok so not all on the cheap... but aren't they fun! It makes going in your closet so much better.

I will be back with my shoes/ accessory finds for spring... I am sure you will be waiting with baited breath.
