I am not someone that says OMG, but if I were I would be screaming it right now.  Who knew that Lilly Pulitzer had a furniture line?  I had no idea until the other day.  I was doing my normal blog browsing and stumbled across this...

and this...

and this...

Talk about love at first sight!

Well, naturally I want those yellow bar stools for my kitchen, so I started searching for a retailer and prices.  This is definitely one of those situations where if you have to ask, you can't afford it.  And I can't.  So sad because they scream me!  Why does my taste have to exceed my wallet?  Just in case your wondering.  You can order from the Lilly furniture line at Neiman Marcus and Horchow.  ...and the bar stools I love...$695.00 a piece.  Ouch!  The prices only go up from there. 

It's still fun to look and maybe one day there will be a cheaper alternative or I'll win the lottery.
Either way a girl can dream...

Indoor s'mores....  so good.  I made the best ones last night.


I'm sure this isn't a secret but it's the first time I've made s'mores with nutella and I love it.  I spread nutella on each graham cracker instead of a chocolate bar and then roasted the marshmallows on a fork over the gas burner until it was gooey perfection (you can roast marshmallows over an electric range burner too).  Then immediately slapped it between the nutella graham crackers and it was amazing!  I think it was so much better than a traditional s'mores.  The nutella was already gooey and I didn't have to wait on the chocolate to melt. This is perfect for an indoor camp out or just having a late dessert on a Monday at 9:30 which is what I did....after the boys were asleep.

Same old couch

What to do with my same old tired red couch?  I am still having trouble figuring out how I want to decorate my lving room.  I have an older red couch but can't get a new one with the little children in the house.  Not practical.  I just can't decide on a color scheme.  I love bright and bold and yet I love calm and serene....and black and white with a pop.  I bought the Schumacher Chiang Mai dragon pillows in aqua to revive the couch and they did.  I love all the colors in the pillows but I am trying to decorate on a budget and not buy all new everything.  That's the biggest challenge.  I guess my next step is to just start finding pictures that I love and try and go from there.  Here's a pretty room with a red couch.

And then here's black and white...

Why am I being so indecisive about this?  It's not like I won't change it an a year anyway...
