My Summer Reading List

I LOVE to read.  I don't always give myself the time to do it but when I have a good book, I love that I give myself the time to do it.  

I would call myself a book snob.  I like brand new, hard cover books.  I LOVE going in to the book store and picking out a new book to read.  If I'm honest I'll say that I buy a new book and put it on my shelf until I'm finished with the book I am currently on.  Well...I have a full bookshelf of books I haven't read.  I've noticed I always end up buying the "IN" book that is on the end cap of the book aisle at Target!

When we first moved here, somehow I found out about a couple books that were being released.  If you were one of the first 500 people to pre-order you were sent an autograph.  Eeekkk this was so exciting for me!

The first was, Living In Style by Rachel Zoe.  I plan on buying a super pretty frame, framing it and putting it in my office space.

Summer Gift Exchange

This lovely group I am in, Style Me Bloggers, is amazing.  We recently did a summer gift exchange, a little gift about where we're from.

I sent my gift to Lana, you'll have to check out what I gave her at Two Teens And Their Mama.  I received a LOVELY gift from Sheila at Making the Most of Everyday.  Let's take a look:

When I opened my box, it was FULL!!! I mean I thought the goodies were never going to end.  Sheila was so super sweet with everything she sent!

A Little, Pretty, In the Kitchen

I'm all about home decor.  I mean, I just can't get enough.  Well, I take that back, my house is pretty much at the point where I have reached, enough.  I don't think I have any blank wall space left.  I'm in trouble when we finally buy a house, or shall I say my walls are ;)

Our Kitchen is T.I.NY!  I can't.even.stand.it.  I'm STILL having trouble organizing it.  And for someone that LOVES organization, ooh, it gets me DAILY.  

Since my kitchen drives me crazy I thought I would spruce it up with a little pretty.  Our Pantry is TINY.  I can't really figure out how to get it to be functional for us.  

The pantry is also RIGHT next to a window that has vertical blinds.  This is something that I can not fix because of our lease rules.
