Obsessed with Bar Carts

There seems to be a growing love for bar carts over on Pinterest. And I guess I'm jumping on the band wagon too (ok, maybe falling off the wagon is better for this this subject...)

Here are a few of my favorites:

Library Table

I apologize for posting again about items that I want. But, I can't help myself with this Library Table. For those of you that read Real Simple, you might have already seen this beauty. And I like that they warn you mid-description that it's super expensive. One can dream....

Loving These.....

I just found this website  and these super cool gold plated bowls. I don't really need them. But, nothing wrong with a wish list. Here are some other fab goodies I found on their site.

My New Favorite Wine

If you live in Charleston, I will assume you are already in love with Red Orchid Chinese Bistro. For those of you not fortunate to have this jewel right down the road from you, I am truly sorry. And I promise to tell more in a future blog.
But, this is about wine. Grant and I were lucky enough to receive a Red Orchid gift certificate from two of his top agents. And the owner also included a free bottle of wine.What I didn't know is this wine is not even on the menu. It was phenomenal. I've only had Barolo one other time. But, I will be searching for this bottle often. Thank you, Tony! What a special treat.

Best of the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes are my favorite awards show out there. The stars are more relaxed (by relaxed I mean drunk - not including Angelina Jolie) and the fashion is always great. Here are my top picks.

Salma Hayek

Evan Rachel Wood
Gucci Premiere

Emma Stone

Jim Toth must be doing something right.
Reece looks HOT in Zac Posen

Angelina Jolie's wax replica
Atelier Versace

Honorable mention:

Laura Dern
Andrew Gn

There are so many other great dresses out there. It was hard to narrow this down. Kate Winslet, Sophia Vergara, and Charlize Theron were all flawless.

Midnight in Paris

I am so pleased with Woody Allen's latest. That being said, I am a huge Woody Allen fan anyway. I get excited just watching the opening credits -  as soon as the see his famous font (Windsor  - for those of you that are interested). Midnight in Paris is probably going on my top five. It makes me want to rewatch all my favorites:

Annie Hall (might be my favorite movie of all time)
Hannah and her Sisters
Crimes and Misdemeanors
Husbands and Wives
Match Point
Vicki Cristina Barcelona

If you haven't watched Midnight in Paris - check it out.

Hungry for Breakfast?

I made this recipe for breakfast New Years Day. Needless to say, it was a hit. I added some of Harry and David's Pepper and Onion Relish just for fun. So Yummy - and easy!

Nail Trends

I have never been one to paint my finger nails - they are usually bare. My toes have always been pampered with pedicures and pretty colors. But, I am loving these nail trends.  Actually, I'm obsessed with them - even doing my own nails.

Happy Birthday to me!

What a relaxing birthday. I did nothing but eat, read, and sleep. A big thank you to my husband, Grant, for a fabulous meal. We took our son to an early dinner at our favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant, Mondo's Delight. It is truly always a delight!

And a big thank you to the best in-laws for this super cool necklace. They always know just what to get me!

I think thirty seven is looking good!

Happy New Year!

Ok, so I'm not going to receive Blog of the Year or Best Blogger 2011. But I think 2012 is my year. I'm not going to say that a daily blog is my news years resolution, but it is certainly going to be a goal.
As the best year of my life comes to an end, I am so excited about the new year. I have so many things to share that make me smile. So here's to improvement on my blog layout and my posts!

And P.S.
New Years Eve dinner at High Cotton definitely made me smile. Not only did we have an amazing meal, we enjoyed the final hours of 2011 with dear friends. I am so lucky to have such fantastic friends. Thank you all for making this such a perfect year.
