  • Gimme Dat List | March

    "He will come to us like the rain." -Hosea 6:3

    Spring is almost here, friends. (cue applause) I love this verse in Hosea and it always reminds me of spring. Even though it can get sloppy outside, I'm thankful for the slop this time of year. It means things are melting and coming to life and the greens are getting greener - hence, the rain. Praise Him for rain being rain and not snow, y'all... hallelu!

    With that, I have some fun things shown below that are currently on my "Ooh, I would love to have that!" list for March. I'm really vibing botanicals, florals, gold (ok, this is year round), marble (oops, yeah, year round love there), sandals, lightweight fabrics, and brights and whites. 

    I'm currently in the market for a new phone case, which is quite a decision. I'm not one to swap these out to match my outfit. I'm more of a one and done (until it breaks) type of girl in this department. And thus, my case recently broke and here I stand. So, I'm digging this cute pineapple one. Too summery? Maybe. Does that matter? Not really. TBD here.

    Regarding the clip board... that might be one you're scraching your head over. Um, why do I need a clip board? Well, I like using them as wall art to highlight a photo or drawing rather than using a frame. Ahhhh, it's all making sense now, eh? I want to get some botanical prints and get four of these to make a little mini gallery. Cute, don't you think?

    The other item I want to highlight is the set of cord tacos... WHAT! How genius/hilarious are these you guys?! I randomly stumbled upon them on the Free People website - bahahaha. R-A-N-D-O-M. So I don't know about you guys, but I have borderline OCD tendencies with certain things in my life. One of them: cords. Seeing cords dangling or having cords unkept in a "junk drawer" makes my skin crawl. Right now, our TV has two cords that hang below it that aren't covered by the console table under it. Literally I'm annoyed every time I see it, but since we are likely moving soon, I don't want to go to extreme measures to cover them - UGHHH. So, here comes the cord tacos. Tuck these around headphones, phone chargers, etc. in your purse, in a *neat* junk drawer in your home, in your car's center console - wherever. These are a fabulous invention! Plus, the cognac color leather is divine. Thanks Free Peeps!

  • Gimme Dat List | July

    It's been awhile since I've posted - well, we went to Honduras at the end of June, then spent two weeks finishing all the projects we kept saying we'd "get to eventually" on our home in preparation for it to hit the market, which we accomplished and it listed on July 16. Now we keep our home in tip-top shape basically 24/7 and have total strangers walk through it when we're not home for showings... it's really a weird concept when you think about it! We've been trying to hold off on looking at homes for sale so we don't find one we love without having an offer in on our house. So, we wait. 

    In the meantime, here is my current "Want List" or as I lovingly call them - my "Gimme Dat List". It consists of clothing, makeup and of course, things for my house. (SIDE NOTE: I've literally wanted this Smith & Hawken basket from Target for over a year... perfect place for blanket storage in our main floor living space - why don't we have this yet?! Also, did you know that Urban Decay has come out with a new "Naked" eyeshadow palette?! What the heck, how did I not hear about this?! I will need to get that STAT. Instead of calling this one "Naked 4", it's apparently "Naked Smokey" - sounds like Caitlin to me. Should be calling this the NEED LIST :))

    What are you pining for currently?

  • Gimme Dat List | March 2015

    Spring is almost here, you guys! {Hallelujah chorus} The sun is shining, the nasty snow along the curbs is gone. GRASS, yes GRASS, is starting to change from brown to green and the sky has changed back to blue from the constant grayish white that winter dooms us with each year. 

    People have come out of hibernation and are walking, running, biking, rollerblading... you name it! Sigh... life is back. Each winter feels like I'm holding my breath until now. 

    Anyway... in anticipation of spring, and dare I say, SUMMER, here are some of my current "wants" - do you notice a vibe? I'm ga-ga over florals right now. CANNOT wait for Target's Lilly Pulitzer line launching April 19... it's in my calendar, don't worry.

    Here's my March 2015 Gimme Dat List:

    tote / jeans / earrings / sandals / sunglasses / swimsuit: top, bottom / leggings / blazer / tank

    Are you swooning over anything lately? Drop me a line!

  • Gimme Dat List | October 2014

    This month's "Gimme Dat List" goes out to some items that are for realsies on my personal "Please purchase me" wishlist. I've combined things from my home list, fashion list and beauty list... Yes, I have that many lists... Lord, help me. 

    table / vest / ceiling tiles + spray paint / jeans / heels / sweater / book / lip balm

    Let me explain the ceiling tiles and spray paint....

    So I want to get these from Home Depot (they're like plastic or vinyl or something) and paint them white and adhere them to my small bathroom ceiling and add some crown molding to finish off the look. I'm going for something along these lines (example ceiling below). Cool, huh?

    It's almost November, you guys! Cray cray. Alright, see ya!
