A few weeks ago I received an invitation to "Cocktails at Tiffany's". I was over the moon. I'm not sure how I got on the list but I couldn't wait to go!!

Disney may call itself the happiest place on earth but they've got nothin' on Tiffany's!!

Omygosh...the sparkle!!! I may have briefly considered selling a kidney to buy something(kidding-mostly!)

Never thought I'd see a dj spinning in Tiffany's!

Yummy food

and of course the Tiffany Martini;)

Some beautiful and stylish cincy bloggers

Becki(of folk&feather), Tamia(of the style sample) and Betsey(of folk&feather)

The lovely coffee table book that was gifted to us!

I'm kind of in love with pink all of a sudden or maybe not all of a sudden, but it's working it's way back into my heart! You know what else I've suddenly fallen for in a big way...glitter nails. Yes sir, all things pink and glittery-aaaaannnnd just like that I'm a 10 year old! 

It's been a busy and exciting week! I have the weekend off(yay!).
There is a list a mile long of things I need to do{ laundry, figure out Thanksgiving dinner, go the grocery store and clean out my closet.}
The things I'll actually do:sleep, sleep, catch up on blog reading,sleep,read a stack of glossies, convince the hubby to take me to brunch, and sleep
Have a lovely weekend my friends!!

Happy Thursday in an outfit brought to you by Tuesday!!
I thought I'd have time to post these on Tuesday but best laid plans....

The morning started off well-woke up, had coffee with my man, went to vote, took these pics-and I got a call saying I didn't need to go into to work until late afternoon...sweeet! I was all set to dive into my stack of seriously neglected periodicals, and my son walks in the door with a blood covered towel on his face!!Yeah, that's never a good sign.
  He had a bike accident and apparently broke his fall with his face! There was kind of a big, gaping hole in his chin. Thankfully, he was wearing a helmet!
I thought that was the worst of it until we got to the ER and I found out it he'd broken his arm:( My poor baby!
All is (mostly) well. We go to the orthopedist tomorrow to get his cast, which he'll have to wear for 6-8 weeks.
*the kids were out of school Monday and Tuesday. In our district polling places are at all the schools and instead of trying to manage a million kids and people coming in out to vote, they just close the schools.

Mission(i) Accomplished

Hello November! When did you show up? Why is it that the older you get the faster time flies!?
  And do you know what isn't helpful? Going to Starbucks and seeing the red Christmas cups...on November 1. 
The nerve! 
But then I had my very first peppermint mocha and all was forgiven;)

 I have to admit that I didn't really get all fuss over the Missoni for Target collection. I guess I'm not a Missoni fan. But as I was strolling to the checkout line I noticed this skirt hanging alone and it was on sale. While I'm still not gaga for Missoni, I liked the colors and the price! It's a size large but it has a drawstring waistband and the I have belts, so problem solved. 

This weekend Art in Bloom is going on at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Florists and floral enthusiast are able to pick a work of art and make an arrangement inspired by the piece.
 This is my arrangement in the kitchen

And here it is in front of the inspiration painting
Frans Hals "Portrait of a Dutch Family"

I really love they look next to each other.
If your local check it out, there are some amazing arrangements!

Have a fantastic weekend!
