Spirit Week: Recap

Monday, October 17, 2011

Monday is back. I hope your weekend was great and that you got to enjoy at

 least a little bit of leaf changing goodness.

We were in Tennessee for Jack's last travel baseball tournament so we were lucky to soak up the views along the Smokys. 

I shared some pictures of Maris' Spirit Week in this post, but thought you might like to see a recap of all the fun that was had. Character Day was spent as baseball legend, Roger Maris with buddies Madeline {Lindsey} and nurse, Florence Nightingale {Stephanie}


Football tailgating in the school parking lot was in full swing thanks to these savvy chefs.


Supporting our Quarterback, Drew Londo!

Stocking up on all their Spirit Week necessities, Maris and Tate.

{How did that tall girl get herself in that tiny cart???}

The Powderpuff Football game was a huge hit, especially since the Juniors {aka 'we take this game REALLY serious'} beat the Seniors!

One of Maris' besties made her a sign for her last home volleyball game of the season. If you can't have your name in lights, then your name in glitter is just as fabulous! Thanks Taylor!!

The week was wrapped up with the Talent Show. And because my daughter doesn't sit out of anything, enjoy Maris and Stephanies performance of 'Shuffling': 

{They surprised everyone by jumping out of the stands to perform and revealing their dance costumes underneath their school clothes. They are mimicking their take on the outfits and dance moves done in the official Shuffling video. If you don't have a teenager then this whole thing probably makes absolutely no sense. Sorry. Oh, and this was my first attempt at using the video feature on my phone and the quality of this clearly shows that I need a lot of practice--double Sorry.}

Seriously, have you ever seen so much hair on one human before?!

We are packing up our soccer, travel baseball, and volleyball uniforms this week. Today is Jack's last soccer game and tomorrow is Maris' last volleyball game. But, have no fear because on Wednesday, the basketball uniforms are reappearing! 


I loved hearing your thoughts on my fabric decisions--thanks so much for chiming in!

Friday's fabric frustrations.

Say it 3 times fast. Then help a sista out.

I scored these great chairs for a client. They feel very Missoni inspired, don't ya think?

I am now selecting the sofa. The problem is, they look good with so many different fabrics!

Love this nubby charcoal linen.



But, it looks so crisp with this fresh stone fabric.

And look how punchy it becomes with this citrus yellow {minus the 'floor sample'

 throw pillows} piped in a gray-blue! This, however is a hard cell for Mr. Client.


Which direction would you go?

Listen up.

I looooooooooooooooooove Adele. I mean I really love Adele.

 But when I heard these 2 sing her song, it rocked my face off.

Listen. Enjoy. But, hold on to your face.



Now, while you are in your happy place, gaze at this face for a minute:








{Beau in the front, Bella in the back}


Your Thursday is officially better.


You're welcome.
