Prince William & Kate Arrive in Canada

Kate Middleton arriving in Canada today.

She seriously can do no wrong. Her look is perfection, yet again.

Let me preface this post by saying that I don't consider myself a sportsman of any sort.

However, I feel compelled to address the topic after two epic kickball games. We won one and lost one, if anyone was wondering or cares. Anyways, there is always one (*at least) big-mouth on the opposing team who spews hatred and a stream of expletives. The whole time.

Now, there hasn't ever been a true brawl. Things get really heated when the games are close. Like tonight. It's hard to shake someone's hand afterwards when they've been screaming in your face and calling you/your teammates every name in the book.

I'd like to say I don't 'give in'. But that'd be a lie. We generally stay quiet until it gets ridiculous.

I'll summarize my attitude towards our opponents by quoting former Housewife of NJ, Dina Manzo:

"If you think I'm a bitch, bring it on."


True Blood is BACK! And it does not disappoint. This could be the craziest season yet. That witch Marnie is a force to be reckoned with. We're learning more about now King of Louisiana, Bill, and it's not good. I definitely foresee something between Sookie and Eric.

I'm loving Million Dollar Decorators! I have two questions though:
Is Martyn Lawrence Bullard's accent for real?

And how is Kathryn Ireland still in business? Obviously, the show is edited to only give a small glimpse into their lives. But, she could not seem more frazzled or disorganized. She's always late (which would drive me crazy) and just does not have it together. That being said, she does create beautiful spaces.

This yogurt is ridic. I'm not a huge yogurt fan. But this tastes just like a pina colada. Perefct for an afternoon snack.

Color Blocking and a Mullet

File this one under fashion trends that I will never master.

However, I can distinguish between good vs. bad.

Both ladies are fans of the trend. One just seems to consistently hit the mark and the other...doesn't. (I'm trying really hard not to hate on Ann Curry. Also, I may still be bitter about her Today Show takeover.)





*I actually don't think Ann looks that bad. She just pales in comparison to Giuliana :)

On another note, did anyone see Billy Ray Cyrus on ENews tonight? Hello, mullet! I don't know what posessed him to reinstate his signature 'do, but he needs a talking to about what decade we're living in.


I'm sure you're thinking 'It can't look worse than this?' Right. But it is bad.....
Must find current pictures.

Celebs + Real Estate = Amazing

Does anyone else read TMZ religiously? I have the app on my iPhone, which makes it hard for me not to look at it all the time. Just can't help it.

They publish some pretty bogus and OOC stories.

 This week's headlines run the gamut from:

Anything Heidi Montag. Because everyone wants to know what she's up to, right?

This weekend she hung with Crystal Harris, Hugh Hefner's publicity loving ex-fiance.


An illicit tape featuring:


BUT. THIS. This is something that I can get behind

Recognize that house? It's from Father of the Bride, one of my most favorite movies EVER! Could it be more idyllic? I used to watch this movie over, and over, and over. I still get excited when I see it on TV! It's currently on the market for a cool $1.5mil. Not too bad considering it's history. Check out more photos of the property on

Remember this MTV show from back in the day? My kickball team calls me Daria. Mmmm....not a good sign. I don't think they adequately appreciate my skill level. Oh well!

Happy weekend!

And, I'm Back!

Vacation with the fam was awesome! It's so nice to only travel 30 minutes home from the island.
Lots of posts and catch up to come!

Also, I decided to try the romper trend.....

It was easy and comfortable, like a dress. But I felt a little weird in it still. I'm undecided on whether I'll be purchasing more in the future.

Half-way through the work week! I think it may be abnormal how much I look forward to the weekends...

What I'm loving today:

Fresh flowers around the house

(It's just a matter of time until I kill these)

New monogrammed bedding that we got for our wedding

Fresh, seasonal fruit for my breakfast

Getting to see these people very soon!

The REAL Bachelorette

I love me some Kate Middleton! But recently, her sister has been the one grabbing headlines. From her fashion, to jetsetting lifestyle, to speculation on her love interest(s). In my opinion, Pippa is the real bachelorette.

Good to know she has to do some work to look that good.

Please tell me that some of you were lucky enough to catch the New Kids On The Block on the Today Show this morning?! Amaze.

I was obsessed with the group when I was younger. I had t-shirts, water bottles, towels, pictures- you name it. Not to mention I would routinely jam out to their concert videos. Probably in a puffy painted T and neon stirrup leggings.

Oh, yes. I owned this gem.

As I eagerly await RHONY tonight (loser), I'd like to discuss Bravo's newest series, 'Million Dollar Decorators'.


I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Not sure I could choose a favorite designer yet, but I did really like Jeffrey Alan Marks. The cast as a whole was quite entertaining. I find it so fascinating to see all of the outlandish ideas they come up with. Hopefully, this season will include some more celeb cameos! Who was your favorite?

As for 'Platinum Hit' with Jewel and Kara DioGuardi, meh. I found it pretty uninteresting. But who knows, I may give it another go.

What's Getting Me Through This Week

Our annual family vaca to:

Bring on the sun, sand, cocktails, card games, and most importantly, relaxation! We've been coming to Kiawah for over 15 years and it's yet to lose its luster. Not only am I excited for the beach, but to spend time with my (very large) family. We've all been counting down the days and the trip will undoubtedly be a great time!

 We won't be staying at The Sanctuary (above). But, we did on our wedding night. The hotel was nothing short of fabulous and I can't wait to stay there again! Anniversary (Mark, do you hear me?!).....

Come on 6pm Friday, hurry up!
