I am however VERY particular about my planner. I used to swear by one that Neiman Marcus put out in November, but once they stopped I had to hunt for a new planner that was just as cute (yes, this is very important) and efficient. Thus I bring you the MyAgenda, and for all my mommy friends they have the same stylish options in the MomAgenda (OCGoodmama this has your name all over it).
My new planner is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, so in anticipation I thought I would share how stinkin' cute it is!

Due to this little fact I am now all about stopping Jonathan Adler online now, and this week the website has me lusting over these adorable sunglasses case. I mean seriously, does it get any cuter than this?!?

All the images below have been taken from their website but I couldn't help sharing. I mean...OMG...I DIE! Please take me to giraffe heaven now! Pretty please!
So this morning these lovely care packages were signed, sealed, and mailed off to a few special recipients!
The preparation continues this weekend with a trip to the farmers market to pick up some fresh strawberries. From there I will be making chocolate cupcakes with fresh strawberry frosting as well as chocolate covered strawberries...yum!

JCrew has also teamed up with Sperry as well to form their own line. While I do adore some of the shoes below I must admit that I’m slightly more partial to the Milly line…my heart is smiling very big today!

My family will be the first to tell you that I've never been a huge reader. In fact, each year one of my resolutions is to read more. Well for the first time this goal is becoming a reality!
We are just beginning February and I'm already on my 4th book which I'm 100% certain is more than I read in the entire year of 2011!
The year started off with Girls In White Dresses...accompanied by the Maui sun and a cocktail in hand (take me back please)! This witty book truly captures the point I am at in my life...constant wedding which of course means endless showers, lots of pregger friends which of course means more showers (love you Sara and Jac), and the never ending drama that comes with dating and parents who are dying for you to get married! It perfectly outlines the hysterical friendships and family dynamics that we deal with in our mid-twenties to thirties and to be honest I probably wouldn't have it any other way!
As for now, well the Hunger Game series has sucked me in. Like I'll skip dinner and screen all phone calls sucked me in. OBSESSED!!! I'm slightly worried about having withdrawls once I reach the end. What ever will i read next!?!

Here are a glimpes of the amazingness that I get to fill my belly with all week. This week is filled with blood orange grapefruit juice, parsnip and apple soup, and watercress with heirloom tomatoes and burrata cheese! Try not to be too jealous!

To start us off I thought I would share the recipe of a delicious meal that I made last night. Although I have always been a relatively healthy eater, this year has me craving new grains, fresh veggies, and innovative meals. So here you have it folks...
1 cup quinoa (red or white)
2 cups water
2 sweet potatoes
½ sweet yellow onion
10 brussel sprouts
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup pine nuts
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Bring water to bowl in medium pan and stir in quinoa. Reduce heat down to low and cover for 10 minutes.
Peel and chop the sweet potatoes (I used white sweet potatoes) into bite size cubes. Clean and quarter the brussel sprouts and finely chop the onion. Add all veggies to a baking dish. Coat with olive oil, balsamic, salt, and pepper. Place baking dish in preheated over and cooking for 30 minutes.
In a small pan, lightly toast pine nuts until golden brown.
Once all components are done mix the quinoa, veggies, pine nuts, and cranberries together in a large bowl.
ENJOY! You are now one step closer to feeding your body a nutritious meal that will make you feel like a million bucks!

So on this Compass Bowl Game day all I have to say is...GO MUSTANGS...PONY UP...MAKE ME PROUD!
This is such an incredible story of strength, grace, and God's divine plan! So today (and every day) we remember you Ruby as we run in your memory! I have been looking forward to this day for months and am excited to be attending with my sweet friend Alex! Please keep the Taylor's in your prayers today as I'm sure this day is bitter sweet for their family.
Side note, for those of you who are not familiar with the Taylor family and Ruby's story you can read about it here!

I know I have a lot of opinions, and I appreciate y'all hanging in there with me as I push my opinions on each of you. With that said, I think everyone needs at least one chevron statement piece in their home. Below I have listed a few of my favorites but by all means don't let me limit you. The chevron is the limit here....think....rugs, plates, chargers, lamps, curtains, and even towels. You name it and I'm sure it exists. Here are a few of my personal favs!
The navy classic chevron accent pillow
The perfect neutral accent wall
The perfect bedroom dresser decor (this is a must replicate ASAP project)!
And of course the ever so chic wooden floors (although consider this as an accent wall treatment...fab)!
