Happy Halloween

This Batman party on Coco & Kelley is like the coolest thing I have seen in a long time.  Since my boys are getting older, kiddie parties are out of the question but this would be very cool for a couple of boys turning 13 this year.  The decorations are spot on and the individual place card/costumes are perfect.  I want to go attend this party.

The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian

My nephew snuck off to Disney World to check out the new Grand Floridian Vacation Club Villas and he sent me few pictures.  Disney has done such a great job with these I could easily live in one of these lovely villas.  I love that they pay attention to all the details, the tile in the kitchen and bathrooms is beautiful.  I like the muted coloring also.  I think the theme is Mary Poppins hence the cute penguins in the fountain.

Modern, Fresh Family Room

curbly living room

Have you seen the latest family room by Emily Henderson?  Emily describes this room as young, fresh and modern but family friendly and comfortable, which is so accurate.  I think this would be the ideal room for my family and I.  I love the white trim and ceiling against the light grey paint.  Plus I love dark wood floors but these lighter wood floors are making me swoon.  They look fresh, they wont ever be dated and are probably easier to clean.  This room is going on my vision board for my future family room.  I also love how the room is styled, so I may have to just copy this exact look.

Subway Tile


I can't stop thinking about kitchens, white kitchens to be exact, they are so beautiful and classic.  I know I want subway tile and I always thought I wanted white subway tile with white grout but then when I saw this kitchen on Domaine something about the grey tile with white grout is so stunning.  I wonder if grey tile will date a kitchen?  Grey is so popular now but I'm sure the trend will change.  However, white on white is so classic I don't think it will ever go out of style but I think I still prefer the grey anyway.

Around Here Lately

I love fall, the trees, the clothes, the food.  

Passenger - Let Her Go [Official Video] (+playlist)

I plan on lighting the fireplace, making a good cup of tea and curling up on the couch while listening to Passenger.  His voice is so beautiful and haunting.

Short Hairstyle Looks

Why are we woman so afraid of short hair?  I know I am.  Are we afraid of looking to masculine?  Is it because men usually prefer long hair? Are we not pretty enough to pull it off?  Do I need hair to hide behind?  There are so many woman out there who are able to wear short hair and look so beautiful and feminine.  It's only hair it will grow back and really I'm not sure my hair can look any worse then it does right now.  I'm dreaming of one of these short hair styles.

Football Food

I needed an easy snack last weekend while we watched some football.  I made bacon wrapped chicken thighs and my three bacon loving boys thought they were perfect.  I just season them with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and oregano, wrapped them in bacon and baked them at 350.  They work great for an easy dinner too.
