Part A: I’m 30.

Thank you for all your sweet words on my birthday last week. I can’t wait to tell you all about the party my dear friends threw for me. It blew me away. For realz. Here’s a teaser to whet your appetite.

I mean, are you dying or are you dying?!? How gorgeous is that? And not only do I have beautiful memories of Wednesday night, but equally beautiful photographs thanks to my dear buddy Skip Hopkins.

[I’m going to show you more, I promise. But I’m still having to narrow down from the 150 pictures sweet Skip edited and gave me on Thursday.]

[Also, I’m still just loving looking at them. So that’s slowing the process down significantly.]

Part B: I’m the next Food Network Star

That may be the grossest exaggeration I have made on this blog all day in a long time.

But I did have an amazing opportunity last week to film a cooking segment on WSMV, the channel that hosted the Get Fit Challenge.

Here’s the link to video of the fruit parfait.

Now listen, I don’t care how many times I’ve practiced having my own cooking show in my kitchen, I’m still no pro. So forgive my amateurness. Cause it’s there.

And, I made a mess RIGHT after I said, “I don’t like to make a mess.”

[welcome to my life.]

And you better watch because seriously, this may be my only 4:45 minutes of cooking fame.

Part C: Amber + Ash

Ok, y’all know Amber– she’s my personal stylist a famous stylist here in Nash and she has become a friend that I insist on speaking to, in some capacity, every single day.

Well, brainiac Amber and her equally talented friend Ash, who is an interior designer, came up with this wicked idea.

Amber picks an outfit- Ash creates a room to match it. AND. Ash picks a room- Amber creates an outfit to match it.

Here are the two blog posts to prove it –

Outfit –> Room AND Room –> Outfit

You’re gonna love. I bet. Cause it’s one of the coolest ideas out there right now.

D. World Cup

I’m sad it’s over. It was a good one, that’s for sure. But the final game- sheesh. What it lacked in beautiful play it made up for in penalties. Yowsa. And I guess I’m fine with Spain winning. Whatevs.

E. Naked Windows

My home is full of naked windows. Help me! I want to do cheap and cute window treatments. I’ve already fully perused The Nester and The Inspired Room [2 of my friends and cohorts over at (in)courage], but I have lots of windows. So please. Help a sister out and send me links to some of your favorite window treatments online.

F. Is my middle initial.

That’s all. See y’all tomorrow.
