I feel like you never actually stop decorating a home. The husband and I are coming up on our one year ‘homaversary’ and we still find ourselves staring at empty walls, searching for perfect accessories & debating on paint colors. As someone who wants to snap her fingers and all projects are complete the home decorating process has taught me the importance of being patient!
A few weeks ago we attended a family friends art show featuring the works of Brenda Bogart & her talented daughter and were blown away. You know those people who are just good at everything creative? Well, that’s Brenda. Having grown up wearing Brenda’s clothing line in the late 80′s (B’s T’s anyone?) I found myself laughing because I have really come full circle with her creative talents. When I was little I wore her designs now being an ‘adult’ I have found myself wanting my walls to wear her art. The husband and I left the show with a few of her daughters pieces (check out her site here) but have really been debating which piece of Brenda’s we want to invest in. Like I said we have quite a few walls left to fill and really thinking this piece could be fun or this one would make a statement. Still thinking about what we want our house to say about us so I will let you know when we decide!

Your definition and my definition (a.k.a. Texas) of winter wonderland I am sure are very different. This past weekend in Dallas it really was an (icy) winter wonderland. Store shelves were empty because everyone stocked up to not leave the house for a few days, restaurants shut down early, schools were closed for 2 days. It really just looked like everyone decided to go on vacation at the same time but really we were all just hanging out indoors.
I for one really enjoyed our little Texas ice/snow. We had friends come over a homemade meal & ice cream sundays made by yours truly, watched movies and just relaxed. WE did get a little stir crazy so on Saturday so I threw on my warmest scarf, leggings, boots, a jacket & hat and headed to our favorite neighborhood bar Inwood Tavern to watch the Baylor Bears beat Texas!
Weekends that force you to just be around the house and relax are few and far between so it was so nice to just slow down for a hot minute before this roller coaster of a holiday season gets in full swing! If you had a little Texas winter wonderland I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Tonight is the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and I could not be more excited. Every year one of my girlfriends hosts a little get together and it’s something I think we all look forward to. Tonight’s soirée is hosted by Krystal. A little later some of my favorite gal pals will head to her house in our favorite pajamas, eat sweet treats and sip champagne while watching the fashion show. It’s always a fun night with a lot of laughing, fake runway walks & verbal commitments to getting in shape. Cheers to tonight! xx
