wish list: suede shoes

I spotted these mustard yellow ruffly suede pumps in the J. Crew catalog. I love yellow shoes and already have a few pair of yellow suede flats. I think yellow shoes look great with jeans. I wore them all fall last year. The suede pumps on the left from Newport News are also darling (and budget friendly). I especially like the grey ones.

happy birthday, john

Five things I heart about John:

1. His sweet, easygoing smile

2. He can add in his head & explain spreadsheets to me without getting frustrated

3. His punny jokes & they way he cracks himself up, even when no one else is laughing

4. His sexy phone (aka “Lieutenant”) voice

5. His undying love for our family

 

Happy Birthday, my love!

decorate: sweet cupcake liners

You know I’m a sucker for cute packaging. My obsession extends to preparing my own baked goods. I see an order from Bake It Pretty in my near future. How cute are these cupcake liners?

in the kitchen: cupcakes

When I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago a friend gave me Martha Stewart’s newest book: Cupcakes. A quick trip to the market and a slight takeover of my cousin’s kitchen, and I was making Triple Citrus Cupcakes. Martha has a video on her website here. They were fun to make, really pretty, and quite yummy (though quite heavy … halfway through the recipe I realized that I was essentially making a pound cake batter).

wish list: gucci booties

I work mostly in jeans, t-shirts and flip-flops, so really I have no actual need for these gorgeous Gucci booties, but my heart aches for them still.
