HOLIDAY HOME-SPIRATION: St. Patricks Day Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I thought I would dedicate this post to the color of the day, green! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for green interiors. These spaces have truly used this holiday’s color in a stylish and sophisticated way.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

Green subway tiles! What a fresh green and white kitchen and a new spin on the tile that has made a huge comeback in recent years.

Here’s to year 23!

Here is a run down of a few of my favorite things from the past year… anything from home goods to wines! Any of these will brighten your day or your space!

Mrs. Meyer's Basil Liquid Hand Soap... the most amazing smell! I have put Mrs. Meyer's in every bathroom in our house and our kitchen I am addicted! They come in a million scents but Basil is by far my favorite!

Woop Woop Shiraz! An amazing Australian Red that David found for us at Costco! Low budget and amazing taste! A MUST! Something perfect to bring over to a friends for dinner or a girls night!

David got me hooked on Starbucks (even more! if thats possible) and Americanos! So of course this had to be a part of the list!

I would not even be able to survive this winter weather without my L.L. Bean Duck Boots! They really have saved my life here!

GUILTLESS PIZZA! What an amazing find right from Dallas, TX (though they can ship to you wherever you are!) Its this amazing couple who homemakes pizzas and pizza crusts that are gluten free! We just buy the crusts and build your own pizzas! Definitely worthy of your money and your tastebuds!

Anyone who knows me knows I am IN LOVE with my Crockpot! If you haven't already invested in one of these babies you really should!

I think this list could go on and on but I will stop there! Year 22 has brought me some amazing things: this blog, the love of my life, a new family in Texas, a full time job after graduation, and a whole new perspective on life. I can not wait to see what year 23 holds for me!

TOURIST STYLE: Bar Belmont in the Belmont Hotel, Dallas, TX

I have been so delinquent with posts this week! I am still recovering from this weekend I guess… my mom came in to town to celebrate her 50th birthday and 3 friends surprised her by coming down as well. So needless to say we were busy busy busy! I will have a lot of Dallas tourist posts coming soon! But I found my new FAVORITE bar in Dallas… Bar Belmont in the Belmont Hotel. It has the best view of the Dallas skyline on their gorgeous outdoor bar patio.

The Belmont Hotel is a little historic boutique hotel. Its been around since the 1940s!
