He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

I'm hoping for the "April Showers Bring May Flowers" saying to come true this year. We had a crazy rainy March and the weather forecast isn't looking so hot for the next week. Soooo, May... DON'T let me down! I don't care how much Claritin, eyedrops and Flonase I have to take. The beauty is worth it.

Honestly... WTF

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: VIII

Spring has finally sprung in the Pacific Northwest and not a minute too soon. I realized as I was putting this post together that the sunshine may have influenced my selections. Colorful, bright and happy. As a native Oregonian, I know to appreciate the nice weather while I can. For all I know, it could snow tomorrow. Enjoy!

One of my favorite color combinations. I want to curl up on that sofa and take a snooze.

 This Nino Doormat is a perfect little greeter for all of your guests.

Okay, could this dress be any more amazing? Clearly, no. Thanks Vogue and
Tim Walker for an amazing photo.

Have you ever wanted to walk on the moon? I could be tempted
by the feeling of weightlessness. Anyway, this Moon Throw is
pretty spot on.

Hello lovlies. Everyone, I would like to introduce you to Gucci Pre-Fall 2012.
I'm quite sure I need the entire collection.

Confession, I am addicted to organizing. My label maker
is one of my BFF's. So, when I see things like this amazing
gift wrap cubby, I get a little giddy inside.

Sigh, Ikat and a handbag. Oh Madeline Weinrib, you know the way to this girl's heart.

Shiny black lacquer makes me happy.

This gem soap is quite possibly the coolest guest soap ever and far too pretty to use.

What Exactly Is It You Do?

I just had to post this photo. It really does represent what I get from people on a
daily basis. Ahh, the joys of explaining my career path...

Portland Farmers Market

This past Saturday was such a lovely day to visit Portland Farmers Market. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and the produce was plentiful. I was accompanied by my sister, brother-in-law and my nephew. This was Orin's first trip to Farmers Market and I think he was really impressed.

One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is wake up early and head down to the market for baked goods, produce, flowers, coffee and of course, my most favorite breakfast burritos at Enchanted Sun. If you haven't had one of these bad boys, you are missing out. Seriously, learn about it.

Helpful hints... Bring cash. Most vendors don't take cards and the ATM charges you to withdraw money. Bring reusable bags. Much easier than hoping vendors have bags to give out. Don't be in a hurry. This is a fun experience and you don't want to rush through and miss something.

Hip Hop Hooray Ho

Last year's highlight from Easter was smashing an egg filled with Nerds on
my cousin's head. This year, it is definitely that I will be celebrating my first
Easter as an aunt. Hope yours is as exciting and filled with obnoxious
amounts of chocolate, jellybeans and ham. God bless leggings.
