AnchorsI guess there is just something about the trend that looks crisp, clean, classy and elegant.  This years nautical outfits have anchors on just about everything, they are cute and it's a simple way to add just the right amount of glam to your outfit!
Although we are trained to think horizontal stripes are a bad thing, I just love how vibrant they look!


red, stripes, chanel, & camel! i mean c'mon!So very cute. #anchor

So with your red, blue, and white, stripes, anchors, sailor knots, and lots of gold...Your wardrobe will be set for the summer weather.

Crochet Cuteness

Happy Tuesday, just a quick little post today,
I'm heading out to the beach for some fun &sun.
but I have something adorable that I just have to share with you..
While I was visiting with my super creative cousin Christina over the weekend, she let me have a sneak peek at what what she's been up to over summer break.  I couldn't believe it, she had made all sorts of crochet hats, beanies, hair clips, and headbands for baby girls and boys. Some of her pieces are posted below - she is just so sweet! If you would like to contact her for info about the items: Christina

Of course my little Isabella  was very into the idea of designing these adorable crochet designs for herself so when we left Christina, we headed straight to the book store & craft shop..

My Fabulous Finds..

I'm linking up with fun in room 4b to tell ya' about my fabulous Friday finds!
What a fantastic party! Link up with Elizabeth & show everyone your Fabulous finds...

My first find that I can't seem to stop obsessing over - are these adorable notebooks.

My next find that makes me smile from ear to ear, is my 1st day back icebreaker activity.  
I'm thrilled that my class will have something FuN to do. 
(will look simply adorable displayed on their desks)

Last find for that I can't live without is sitting in my backyard! We finally found such a steal at Macy's Furniture outlet.  Hubby and I snagged a beautiful table and chair set, it was half price. (bought the floor sample, no cushions.. but yay!) 
Ok.ok..I have one more find that I have to share not work or home related, but check out these super cute Juicy wedges...A steal from their 4th Of July sale!

Happy 4th Of July..

 Happy 4th of July!  It's time to celebrate this national holiday with red, white and blue, fireworks and parades, stars and stripes, flags, picnics, hot dogs and BBQ's. Here are some fun facts to share with your family & friends about the birth of our American Independence..
                                Did You Know:
-The 4th of July was not declared a national holiday until 1941.
-The first 4th of July party was held at the White House in 1801.
-Over 150 million hot dogs will be consumed today.
-America's second President John Adams was the first one to light the fireworks for Independence day.
-In a remarkable coincidence, former Presidents John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and 
James Monroe all passed away on the date July 4th. (different years of course)
-Betsy Ross, according to legend, sewed the First American Flag in 1776 as commissioned by the Congressional Committee. 
-The first Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks show in NYC occurred in 1958. (simply amazing)

I'm getting ready to CELEBRATE! I'll be laying poolside with my kiddies, hubby, family and friends and then we will watch the FiRe-WoRks... Hope you have a fantastic Fourth of July!

My 1st summer trip to Target!

It's been so lovely being on summer break.  I'm having lots of fun with my family.
My children just love that I am home, we have been spending lots of time outside, playing and swimming, but today I made my first summer trip to TARGET! I kinda knew it would be a little bit dangerous...but I had no idea - I would do some back-to-school shopping!!  Our last day of school in NY was just a week ago!  However I still managed to buy all sorts of fun stuff..

               how adorable are these notebooks and folders..

two gigantic bouncy balls for the kids..

& we needed to purchase a gigantic swan float!
