royal wedding party

good morning lovelies!
i've been up and celebrating the royal event since 5am
my royal wedding party included- my lady rachel, my lord taylor&myself

breakfast fit for a queen...or a princess!
our research for the big day
the juicy details of kate and williams' dating and relationship
all 100% true, i'm sure
the official royal wedding ceremony program
provided by my lovely guest rachel
another party favor from rachel- my royal crown!!!

the centerpiece that i pre-ordered for the event
thank goodness it came in
truth be told this glorious bag is from dollar general
and the white wedding hydrangas from central market
our view from our posh pad overlooking the palace
aka- the tv in our living room
taylor and i so would have attended if we didn't have arcade fire tomorrow night
priorities people....
hope you enjoyed my mini celebration
of this spectacular moment in history
it's been a splendid affair!
thank you lady rachel and lord taylor
for making it special and oh so posh

so what do you think about the royal wedding?
did you get up early to watch or you more of a dvr/tivo viewer and will check it out later?

i thought this quote from b frank was appropriate.

we enjoy reading books worth talking about

and drinking wines worth writing about

a room and an outfit

a room and an outfit
my attempt at an outfit inspired by a room
or in this case a nook
i adore this beautifully designed wallpaper
& the bright yellow pop of color!

5 on friday!

hello lovelies! the weekend is here
and i couldn't be happier
my love and partner in crime-TV is turning 30 + 1 tomorrow!
i have some adventures planned to celebrate his birthday

hope you enjoy my 5 on friday
and have a fabulous weekend!

this is the swimming pool art installation in 21st century museum of art, at kanazawa japan
by artist leandro erlich.The top surface is filled with 4 to 5 inches of water
that looks like a realistic pool. the people underneath the swimming pool
can actually look above with realistic water effect on top of it.
i love tee pees! and i love camping..ok- let's re-phrase that- i love glamping.
la la lovelys' post on them reminded me just how glamourous they can be. hello?
when can i move in? DIY backyard project soon?

how women see color and how i man sees color
i usually disagree with gender stereotypes but this one is spot on

sooo beautiful!!!
and for all you yogis out there
list that made me laugh my asana off
all the way to savasana

music for thursday

music for thursday
water for elephants
(can't wait!)
yes i'm random but go with it:)

when i first heard freelance whales...i wanted to know more
who are these amazing creatures that create this fantastic music?
heres what i found online:

Freelance Whales found one another in late 2008, in Queens, amidst a strange amalgam of unfamiliar instruments, and precariously arranged pop songs. Using whatever musical gadgets they happened upon (mostly harmonium, banjo, glockenspiel, synthesizers, guitars, bass, drums, waterphone), the five members worked at crafting songs with interlocking rhythmic patterns, lush textural layering, and an engaged group-vocal energy. The result is their debut LP, weathervanes, whose songs work at evoking a sense of dislocation, or sensory disorientation.They invite the human spirit to exit the body, if only for brief moments. Freelance Whales can be spotted in the streets and humble venues of New York City, and in due time, elsewhere.

wow-that is a lot of instruments!
i agree with the description of their music that
'invites the human spirit to exit the body'
i know it sounds deep but take a listen for yourself
this is their south by southwest show

in the beginning-i love how their voices become one more instrument
pretty amazing!
and the musician hubby pointed out their 5 part harmony-impressive!!!

what i ate wed

today i'm taking a cue from my
and since it is still wed morning these are actually foods
i've been into lately-not just today:)

oh my
i've never been a big fan of grapefruit until i bought a texas ruby red at whole foods
be still my heart-best way to start my day. had a juicy one for breakfast this morning!

i know it might sound odd but i enjoy some BS sauteed with my eggs in the morning
butternut squash that is:)
these bad boys are soooo good. another whole foods treasure i can't seem to quit.
the sweet and the salty is such a great combo!
so tell me- what are your recent eats or treats??

i've really been enjoying the new company cafe on greenville

this past weekend in indio california
COACHELLA 2011 happened!
a 3 day music festival that takes place once a year and is truly amazing!
i am paying homage to the splendor that is coachella
and posting a pic from my 2007 visit to indio for coachella

i was a complete hot mess for all 3 days...
but it was so worth it!

this years' amazing lineup
here are some of my favorite fashions
sported at the festival

oh diane

how cute is she?

easy breezy

i am looking forward to some outdoor summer shows
i'm super excited about arcade fire next week
at the dallas arboretum.
what better way to unwind
than on a lawn with a blanket,friends, and good food and drinks
listening to cheesycover bands? it's awesome!!!

what outdoor music encounters do you have planned this spring/summer?
