While the title of this post is also one of the greatest movies of our time (overstatement?), it’s also what I’m up to this weekend! The Red Head and I are hitting the road and not stopping until we get to Chicago, though the NFL Draft and Hockey Playoff traffic might try to slow us down. We have a First Communion to celebrate, early Mother’s Day gifts and some quality time together after what has been one of the crazier weeks this year. We’ve both been taking on some extra projects and seems we’re rarely in the same place together for more than 20 minutes. Time to change that and catch up with the fine family and friends of Chicago. Catch you when I return!

If you want a glimpse into my dream house, just make note of the laundry room above. Take that style, multiply it over a few rooms and let me move in! Please?

Art with a sense of humor is always a favorite of mine. And after the chaos of my life the last two days, this image seems more than fitting.

We almost forgot what it looked like, but the sun is back! I’m keeping this brief because there is not a cloud in the sky, the monster deserves a long walk and cocktails taste way better on a patio. I’m going to go prove that theory while you enjoy these links from around the web!
For the third weekend in a row, the Red Head and I are going to be working on our master bedroom. The worst part is that the end isn’t even near so we’re not going to talk about that. Instead we’re going to talk about the fact that 5 o’clock has come and gone, the forecast is promising and I have some seriously good leftovers in the fridge right now. Small victories. Have a great weekend!

The Thursday Crew is back at it again and tonight we’re having a pizza night! I’m hoping for a scene similar to above but with Hawaiian pizza. Bring on the Canadian bacon, pineapple and cocktails, we’re almost to the weekend!

If anyone is in the market for a beautifully embellished cocktail dress, please buy this one. I love, love, love it and secretly want to get married again so I can wear it at the reception.

This color. More of it. Everywhere. Please.

After about 8 hours of painting this weekend, it has been determined that the Red Head and I don’t like the master bedroom paint color we chose. This is a problem but I haven’t lost total faith… yet. I’m hoping that new carpet, dark curtains, a wall of framed art and some new bedding will change our mind. Here’s hoping that works because these arms are TIRED from rolling walls and ceilings for the last two days. While I go stare at a wall and convince myself I love the color, enjoy these links from around the web this week.
In scrolling through my feeds today I noticed that I’m definitely having a pastel moment. I blame spring and I’m not mad about it. Bring on the budding flowers, the sunshine and some BBQs because it has been far too long. Maybe we could pack all three of those things into tomorrow afternoon? Let’s do it, weekend. Have a good one!
