New Chandelier

I am so excited to get home from work today to hang our new chandelier! Although this amazing Wine Bottle Chandelier from Pottery Barn is not the one that we bought, I still wanted to share this great chandelier that Pottery Barn has added to their stores. Our chandelier came from Sweets, Treats & Designs. I fell in love with ours at the Spring Martini Party last Sunday - which was quite a fun day!

Fido Friendly Hotels

Adam and I are looking for a great dog friendly hotel in Seattle for my birthday. I did not realize all the possibilities in the city. Our first pick is Hotel Max (Hotel Murano's sister hotel- we love Hotel Murano!) and in a close second the W Hotel - always amazing. We are having brunch with my family, then headed to Pike Place Market - our first trip as a couple AND dog friendly market, then to dinner at El Guacho and hopefully a night a Hotel Max!

The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry

After reading about The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry on Alexandra Hedin's blog post a few weeks ago I decided to order it off amazon (the only way to buy books I feel). It is a great story about a 36 year old woman who leaves her corporate job (after her boss eliminated her position) and took her life savings to move to Paris and attend the world famous Le Cordon Bleu cooking school (which I would LOVE to do too). Although I am not that far into the book, I can tell you it is a funny account of her everyday life in the French culinary world.  Working in the restaurant business I find myself laughing along while she tells her daily accounts with the chefs. She also has some tasty sounding recipes - I am most exited to try the Golden Onion and Roasted Tomato Quiche first. The book also has a Menu Guide for Book Clubs in the back. Now all I need is a Book Club and I am set.

Wedding Suites Event @ Paper Source Bellevue store

Today my mom ( a talented card designer) and I are going to Paper Source's Bellevue store to a DIY Wedding Suites event where we'll get to craft a distinctive wedding suite inspired from Paper Source's collection of invitations, escort cards, table tents and favors. Tonight we will have time to create a wedding suite uniquely my own. The best part is that they will be offering wine and cheese! I am SO lucky to have one of my dearest friends, Heather, a VERY talented graphic designer and Creative Director for 425 magazine design our invitations. This will be a great time to source some amazing papers and get additional ideas to work on with Heather.
