On Sunday I went to my niece’s birthday party, who turned four this month. I just had to share some photos of what we gave her–the most adorable present, found at the wonderful boutique in New Albany, Dress and Dwell.
I was inspired to get these after twitter friend Robyn picked them up after a spin class one day for her daughters. I made note and went back when I needed a gift for a wee one!
Are these not the most adorable, clever things ever!?!?

These photographs are very similar to Dane Shitagi’s Ballerina Project, which I shared awhile back.
I love love love this ongoing photography project from Jordan Matter in NYC called Dancers Among Us.
There are also some pretty cool “Behind the Scenes” videos that show how some of these amazing shots are captured:

this week I finished a wickedly popular DIY project from Pinterest. I have long been addicted to buying things in the bulk section — boy do I miss those Austin grocery stores! The bulk sections at Central Market and the flagship Whole Foods were TO DIE FOR.
The paint is super cheap and the whole project fairly easy if you already have a bunch of jars. I’m liking it, but overall think it might be overrated. Let’s be honest, I just wanted to get my hands on some chalkboard paint!
As I write this, I’m sitting here catching up on episodes of Homeland — so good!

Enjoying my coffee, getting ready to head to a yoga class when I found these this morning. Hilarious!

I just want to thank all of you who have been reading this little blog since October — it has been so fun and I look forward to a hundred more posts!
I also just listened to the new episode of PCHH and discovered some more Downton Abbey hilariousness for this fine Friday:

I hate wearing shorts…my legs are never tan and as soon as you walk inside anywhere, you are blasted with frigid air conditioning…well, let me take that back — I hate wearing shorts WITHOUT tights…with tights? I love me that look!
My favorite consignment shop here in Louisville put out their spring stuff yesterday — definitely going to make a trip today to get first look!

Okay, so I don’t know about you, but when I’m cleaning, music is a MUST. I go through many different phases, but today I have the ultimate kitchen cleaning playlist. If this doesn’t help you get those counters squeaky clean, I don’t know what will.
Eliza Doolittle — “Pack Up”
tUnE-yArDs — “Bizness”
Hanson — ”Give a Little”
The Goat Rodeo Sessions — “Attaboy”
Jackie Wilson — “Reet Petite”
Your New Twin Sized Bed — “Death Cab for Cutie”
Lykke Li — “I Follow Rivers”
Lady Antebellum — “Friday Night”
Foster the People — “Helena Beat”
Amos Lee — “Colors”
I hardly ever watch music videos, so this was also super fun to get see the videos for some of my favorite songs!
