"Color block you say"? Yeah, I said it! Straight from the runways of Paris and Milan color blocking is the big trend. Some
crazy homeowners are even color blocking their kitchens!! Oh the horror! Well, actually, it's kinda cool.

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo.....and, I have a wonderful recipe for you to serve! This salad is not only light & tasty, it's really beautiful too! It would be a great dish to serve on a hot summer day, as there is no oven or stove involved! If you are bringing this dish to a party, you can layer ingredients in a glass bowl for a nice presentation. To save a little time, you can make the vinaigrette ahead. I opted not to use the shredded cheese, to save on calories. However, it does kick this recipe up a notch! Ole'!

Let's see.... the last time I stepped into JC Penney's was a few years ago and I was looking for some sheer curtains. Who knew that the store has worked out some deals with top designers! Look at all the goodies Happy Chic by Johnathan Adler has in store at JC Penney....

The weekends are warming up and I'm trying out some new burger ideas on the grill. We are really trying to eat healthier around here and are having fun coming up with some tasty low fat recipes. This one is a real winner for adults and kids! If you like Buffalo Wings, then you'll enjoy the "Buffalo" version. The kids and adults will both like the "Ranch" version. These burgers are packed with nutrition too...we snuck in grated zucchini to the meat! You would never know the zucchini was in them and wow did they make the turkey moist! YUM!

I love furniture! Acquiring a new piece for my home or a client's home makes me happy! Everything about the process of searching for a new piece is like a little adventure for me. Today, I'd like to share with you one of my favorite pieces. It was love at first site and I knew that we were meant to be together! This piece alone spearheaded a mini makeover for a good portion of my first floor. We have a very wide foyer/hall leading from the front door back to the family room. I had been wanting to have a built-in put in to function as a bar/serving area for some time. After having a few contractors come in to look at my built-in design, I thought I was well on my way to getting the job done. Then, while cruising the web, I came across none other than Paula Deen's furniture site and her gorgeous bar armoire. I had to have it! Done and done! Bye, bye contractor man!
Don't be fooled by my good looks! I can come in very handy...

Happy Thursday friends! It's been in the 80's here in NC for the past few days and I'm ready to go to the beach! But, alas, I am not beach bound yet...so, I'll just sit here and dream about my pretend beach house. Like this one in swanky Palm Beach...
I am lovin' how the blue pops against all that white!

Happy Easter Weekend friends! Earlier this week I wrote about Simple and Easy Easter Decor and showed some pictures that I was drawing inspiration from. Read that post here. After, a trip to Pier 1 and World Market there is definitely some eye candy on my Easter table now!...

Easter is just a few days away and I am trying to rustle up some decor inspiration before my guests arrive. Unfortunately, I purged most of my kiddie Easter decor now that my girls are older. I am left with just a few odds & ends and a bunch of eggs. Simple ideas are what I am after. So, I'm using these photos as my inspiration...look for my post later this week to see my interpretation!
