Happy Weekend!

I don't think I need buns of steel.  I'd be happy with buns of cinnamon.

I cannot believe we are already in the middle of October.  We are so busy here, the days are just blurring by.  There is a lot to be excited about in Casa McGough.  This weekend is my daughter's first homecoming dance and I think I may be a touch more excited.  I can't wait to see her all fancied up with her date having this special experience. [bittersweet tear rolling down my cheek].  My mom is coming for a visit next week where we will be celebrating her birthday.  The longer we are away from family, the more we appreciate these visits.  What do you have going on?

Shop || I cannot believe I am saying this, but I have started Christmas shopping.  I try to get most of it out of the way before December because it is sardine can crowded around here and gets much worse the closer to the holidays.  While, internet surfing I found this adorable tee for a friend.  

Art || If you live near Houston, the Monet exhibit will be coming to MFAH on October 26th. I can't wait to see it.  Claude Monet was my first artist crush in high school {just a few years ago}. You should swing by for a little Impressionism and some lunch.

Blog || I have been engrossed in the One Room Challenge for the last few weeks.  I am floored by the amount of stellar talent out there!  Let's face it - there is nothing more exciting than seeing a complete room overhaul from the comfort of your own drywall dust-free home. :)

Art || Yep, I did it.  I just ordered this awesome print for our powder room.  I think it is major cool and plan on ordering myself this very suit for next summer [not really...]. My daughters will eventually get used to nude art, right?!

Beauty || I love the look of a bright, matte lip for colder months.  I have been dying to get over to Sephora to check them out.  I have my eye on this and that.

Have a super awesome weekend!

  1. How exciting Lisa! I can't wait to see her pictures and dress. Enjoy your weekend and next week with your mom. Family visits are always special ;) Let's do lunch then the week after.

    1. Thanks, girl! It is pretty exciting. Lunch sounds great. I'll text you soon! ;)

  2. Hi,

    I started Christmas shopping too, it's always nice to think about it before the rush ;)

    1. I agree! It feels like I am starting earlier each year. I think because my patience is less each year. ;)


Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing your thoughts. :)
