Manic Monday

Somehow life lately has been an absolutely wonderful whirlwind! It seems when one part of life becomes busy, everything else does too.  Between some major work events, Junior League, (we just released next year's leadership and I am a project chair--so excited!), wedding planning, some trip prep for a long Memorial Day and a trip to Minnesota for nephew M's Christening, as well as life in general I have neglected my little bloggie!

Get to see this precious baby boy in June.

So on another Manic Monday I thought I'd share some pics from life lately, mainly found on my Instagram. . .

Not that new of a picture, but I'm really really working on getting back into yoga.  I was hoping a trip to Lululemon would give me the motivation I needed.

A few weeks ago, I hosted a dessert party for SHS' birthday complete with a peeps cake.

And bourbon.

I feel like I've been writing many many letters lately.

Including some on my new engaged thank you cards courtesy of Targey.

I've been wearing a lot of glitter nail polish.

I have become majorly obsessed with making coffee in my French press.  Also super busy = way too much coffee.
Beautiful flowers from the family helped Spring-ify home.

My new obsession: rainbow-colored fruit layered in cocktail glasses.

And a few weekends were spent on my long hallway, first painting the walls and doors and having SHS help hang my chandelier. . .

Then completing my gallery wall last weekend.
 Which required a lot of pre-hanging prep on the living room floor.

But I did have a chance to kick my feet up. . . 
And enjoy some trail mix popcorn with the new Lilly catalogue.

And have an impromptu date night with SHS lately.

What have you been up to lately?

P.S. Follow me on Instagram @glitterista!
