Be jealous

Not only do I get to meet the fabulous Jennifer from Calista Cove this weekend BUT I got these adorable barrettes/bobbie pins for FREE! Yep, you read that correctly. How, you ask? Be being an Insider Rewards member! I receive credit for purchases made through my link (you benefit from a discount code and I benefit too!) so I just applied my credit to these classic barrettes.

Plus I had some credit left over so I applied that credit to a beautiful anchor necklace too!

Look what I just picked up on Hautelook:

They also have a cute strawberry:

And they have these in rings too. The elephant ring is soldout :(

AND Hunter Boots are on sale for $58 at Gilt Groupe right now!! That's a steal!

If you would like an invitation to Hautelook or Gilt Groupe leave a comment with your email or send me an email!

Yes, I slept in my office cafeteria

And so it begins (I think these first few photos were taken around 1 AM)
I took this photo from the street (looking inside at K and M):

One of my favorite photos (do you see the Capitol in the background??):


J sleeping in the cafeteria:

8 AM the crowds start pouring in!

Gosh it was nice being all warm inside ;)

This is when they found a suspicious bag. Within seconds they had cleared the area:

Oops someone just apparently didn't notice dropping their PURSE!

Snipers on the roof!

I had a strange fascination with the crazy amount of portapotties:

My fav uniform:

Bush leaving:

Huge thanks to K for letting me borrow these 2 photos. I decided to take videos of the actual parade/procession (will post those tomorrow) and borrow K's amazing photos.
BIDEN! (click to make the photo bigger)

Obama and family (click to make the photo bigger)

(Obama is on the left, his wife to the right, and the girls are riding backwards-Malia is waving on the left)

Just got this at Target. It holds my smaller purses/bags

Lilly Pulitzer bed skirt

Pink and brown chair from Target (with my new toile pillow!)

Elephant bookend from Target

Pink lamp shade

Pink dresser (I am trying out the brown flower decals. What do you think?), with my Target damask tray (and of course Elton in the back ;) )

Photos from the next Gossip Girl episode, "You've Got Yale":

I LOVE Blair's coat!

How cute is Nelly's pink jacket?

I like Serena's stripe top (dress?)

Photos from the CW

We Are One concert

Did you all catch the concert on HBO? Well I was there! M, K, J and I headed over early yesterday morning to get prime spots for the show. It was warmer today (so happy) and an experience I will never forgot. This was the first time I ever heard a president speak live. My favorite photos:

Me and K (note my Vineyard Vines hat-kept me very warm!):

When Obama was speaking (my zoom is awful!):

Snipers on the roof:

See that pink thing by the tree?

It's a Vineyard Vines whale!
