Royal Wedding... Ah... What a day!

Lucky for me, Thomas slept right up until 4:15am yesterday morning.  We had a quick bottle, back to bed for him and downstairs to watch the Royal wedding for me.  I'm so glad Megan and I woke up early to watch the festivities.  It was a true fairy tale and very romantic.  I was in awe the entire morning.  Kate looked breathtakingly regal and William was beyond handsome in his uniform. It will be a day I will always remember.

Today I'm hosting afternoon tea for me and two friends.  I will try and take a photo. Have a great one folks!

Rob Lowe's Santa Barbara House

Hello!  It's been a while.  Thomas, Ryan and I have been enjoying a lot of family time.  I've been keeping busy with two Mommy and baby classes, hanging out with other moms, running the household and just daily life.  Life is great!  I honestly didn't know I would love being home with Thomas as much as I do.  The idea of going back to work Jan '12 is depressing.  I try not to think about negatives and only think positively now.  How could I not?!  I have a loving family, the world's best husband, an adorable little baby boy, wonderful friends.  :)  I'm a happy camper.  

Tonight our friend Megan is sleeping over.  We plan on waking at 4am to watch the Royal wedding.  I'm giddy with excitement!!  Will recap later tomorrow on our scones, tea and wedding party for two.  Right now, I need to share photos of Rob Lowe's house which was featured on Oprah today.  It has also been featured in Architectural Digest.  It's stunning!!  Rob, his wife worked with interior designer David Phoenix.  It's absolutely stunning.  Check it out for yourself.

Easter Dinner Table Setting

This year I'm Ryan and I are hosting Easter dinner for my family.  It's our first holiday event in the new house and with Thomas.  I'm very excited!!  Mostly to have my family here for the weekend and partly for the chance to use my (I know I should say our but let's be honest I'm more interested in it) china set.  I've purchased a new table cloth which is turquoise and gold and have been researching ideas for table settings and centre peices.  Here are a few beautiful tables to start the juices flowing.  

p.s. Thanks for checking in!  I will eventually get back into the swing of things.  Until then I may have more posts on Thomas than interiors.  :)  xo

I'm still here... just taking my time getting back into the blog world.  I'm actually feeling like I've lost my interior design blog mojo.  It's not just in the blog world.  My favourite home decor magazines lie unread each month.  Who knows... I still have plans for the house but everything seems to be on hold right now.  Maybe I just need to dive in and see how it goes.  

Debating on starting a mommy blog as my life is all about Thomas right now.  We'll see...
