pink and green thursday: kate and wills edition

the excitement is building...
and i find it even hard to sleep, 
just thinking and dreaming about the big day
(i know this is crazy...
mr prep is ready to move out until the hub-bub is over)

and i love that kate and will are giving us 
a taste of something new each day 
like this gorgeous new photo!

today i wanted to honor miss kate, 
soon to be referred to as catherine, 
with a little pink and green!

she looks lovely in both colors, yes?

one swirling rumor is that she might choose 
her "something borrowed" 
from the queen's jewelry box 
and wear this stunning emerald choker diana wore to an event

but what do you think she's chosen to wear on her honeymoon?

a few suggestions, in pink and green, if i might
and something for will, of course!

tomorrow is a BIG day! happy wedding day 
to all you royal watchers! 
enjoy your early morning tea and tv!

i'm putting together a small party for friday evening for 
a couple girlfriends and thier kindergarten daughters 
(ie. little ladies in waiting)

i ordered a custom-made cake with the union jack iced on top, with "congratulations kate and will....april 29, 2011"
i know the ladies at the bakery thought i was crazy!

mildred pierce

did you watch the mini series on hbo?

i adore everything kate winslet does and this was no exception --

she takes such daring roles, and roles 
that are not always glamorous--
although she totally is!
i absolutely loved (and hated) her co-star Guy Pearce

i cannot wait to read the book now!

a little spring in my step today
and a little pop of color to go with my lbd!

jump rope girl

a moment to brag here, please...

muffy has not taken to athletics too well
(bless her heart, she follows after her mother 
and is on the dramatic side)

so when the jump rope competition at school was announced,
she was understandably worried.

day after day my sweet girl practiced and practiced

and at the end of the competition 
it was announced that she jumped 125 times 
(not consecutively) 
and tied for first place in kindergarten!

what a lesson she learned -- 
you can do anything if you put your mind to it and practice!

f is for french

i'm in a french state of mind today
could it be because a co-worker just got back from paris 
and was gushing about the trip?
is it because i fantasize about my own paris vacation one day 
(when i turn the big 4-0? c'est possible....)

don't you just love how the french do things?

the manicures
the coffee
the perfume
my favorite is quelques fleur
the bread
the braids
the kiss
the food
the books
the fashion
the art

oui, oui, oui!

what's your favorite french fetish?
