Tuesday Tidbits

Courtney of A Thoughtful Place is another favorite blog gal pal I have yet to meet ;-)  You probably already know how inspiring, kind, witty, & all sorts of awesome she is.  Sort of a big deal.  My big deal radar goes crazy every time I'm near Courtney's blog or her Instagram feed.  She invited me to partake in her fun Fashion Snapshot series & today's my turn.  I'm chatting about how my personal style/fashion sense influence my home & design choices. Spoiler: so low-maintenance.  What do you mean, you're not surprised?!  Thanks a million for having me, Court!!!

* Did you watch the Oscars?  I love the Oscars but hate watching it live (weirdo).  So drawn out, so full of speeches & stuff ;-)  I just prefer logging on after the fact to see the the red carpet looks & highlights in one neat recap.  Ellen rocked it (pizza & all) per usual.  Lupita moved me to tears.  Jennifer Lawrence was in typical J Law mode which makes me hope we can be friends even more.  Portia's dress was my favorite.  And of course, there was the selfie that broke Twitter.

* Last but certainly not least, Stefanie of Brooklyn Limestone & Jen of Rambling Renovators have rounded up an amazing group of bloggers (hey, how did I get in there) for a Favorite Things gift exchange, Mother's Day edition.

We've each been secretly assigned someone & I'm so excited to surprise my giftee with some of my favorite things.  A springtime Secret Santa if you will.  We're all long-time bloggers & moms who share a passion for home, design, & DIY....my kind of party!  I can't wait to share more & I hope you'll come along for the fun!

Thanks to the lovely Stef & Jen for gathering such a great group & for organizing a way for us to connect!  
And for inviting me to play.
Now, I'm off to figure out how best to ship a crate of wine to my giftee.  Kidding.  Probably.
(OK, now I'm officially retiring that joke.  I'm no Ellen, that's for sure.)
