Pinterest love Wednesday: Feeling blue?

{Blue door: Photo by Anne Gardner seen on Two Tall Blondes (vía Britta)}

It’s not really a secret that I like every color.  No really!!! I don’t have an absolute favorite. But somehow, I really am attracted to blue. I mean, come on….my bridesmaid dresses were navy! It must be special right?! So I leave you with some inspiration for today in some lovely blue hues.  El hecho de que me gustan todos los colores no es un secreto.  De verdad!!! No tengo uno favorito. Pero por alguna razón siempre me atraen los azules.  Hasta escogí el azúl marino para los vestidos de mis damas!! Eso significa algo no?? Bueno, los dejo con inspiración de color azúl.

Have any fun holiday plans?

{Lovely & simple cupcake decoration. Linda y sencilla idea para decorar cupcakes.}

Well, we don’t! Ha! so far we don’t have any set plans for our day tomorrow (as usual). All we know is we’re hitting a museum in the morning (my request) and we’ll be closing the day off with some fireworks (I hope) …. and we’re meeting some friends in between.  I hope you have a wonderful, refreshing and safe day tomorrow. I leave you with some delicious looking treats and cute ideas for a patriotic party from my friend Martha Stewart (ALL images via her website!~ Click on picture to view recipe or instructions). Hasta ahorita no tenemos ningún plan seguro para el día de mañana (como siempre).  Solo sabemos que iremos a un museo por la mañana (mi idea) y cerraremos la noche con cohetes (espero)….y nos veremos con amigos en algun momento.  Espero que tengan un día lindo y refrescante….y se portan bien.  Los dejo con unas delicias y unas ideas super lindas para celebrar de parte de mi amiga Martha Stewart (todas las imágenes son de su página!~ haz click en la foto para ver la receta o las instrucciones).

{Yummy!! Que rico!!}

Mini Valentine Making Party

After looking through the february issue of Living and finding the coolest little valentine making party,a couple of my friends and I decided to have our mini version of it at my place (since I have all the card making goods) and copy their dinner and dessert: Pizza sandwiches with arugula & basil salad and peanut butter and jam cookies!!  (their pics are way better than mine…I had loads of crappy lighting! sorry!)

So last thursday night we prepared all the goods for the pizza sandwiches and cookies and enjoyed a lovely dinner with champagne!  My friend Alisia’s engagement happened Wednesday night so the news called for a celebratory beverage…..which in my mind is ALWAYS ALWAYS champagne (or some kind of sparkling wine!).


{CHEERS! Congratulations Alisia & Jon!}

{Isn’t her ring pretty?}

{ready for some peanut butter & raspberry jam cookies?}

{so they’re a little fopped up, but they were pretty delicious!}

{card making gets intense!}

Have yourselves a Happy pre-Valentine’s weekend!
