Garnet Hill nautical new arrivals (home and kids)

My mom saved the new Garnet Hill catalog for me because of all of the nautical new arrivals. I am in love with the dream boats bedding. My only complaint is that I wish they had more boys clothing!

I haven't seen this collection in person, but I instantly fell in love when I saw it online. SO NAUTICAL! I will update this post if I find the whale pillow from the Parker Collection.

The Broad and Undateable filming

Last Friday I decided to take the afternoon off work for an adventure downtown with Leeann. I went into work at 7:30, took H to school, ran errands, walked the dog, and then headed downtown to The Broad. The Broad is a brand new museum in downtown LA. It has been packed every day and advanced tickets are sold out until APRIL. We decided to brave the crowds and got in line just before opening. It took us about 1.5 hours to get in but we had a lot to catch up on so it went by pretty quickly. Once we got inside we headed straight for another line (ha! theme of the day) to put our names down for the Infinity Mirrored Room (our wait was predicted to be about 4 hours-as long as you have your ticket you can come and go. You don't have to wait in a physical line for all of that time). The Infinity Mirrored Room often books up quickly so we were just happy to have a time that worked with our schedule.

Can you spot us?

After we explored the museum we went to lunch at Blue Cow Kitchen. I was really hungry and devoured my delicious garlic fries so quickly! After lunch we headed back toward the museum with about 1.5 hours until our predicted infinity room time. I got ice cream and Leeann got coffee. Well, go figure-just as we sat down to enjoy our treats we got a text that we needed to get in line for the room within 10 minutes. HA! Threw out our treats (so sad) and headed inside. As we were waiting in line Martha Stewart (!) was brought to front with her group. No waiting in line for Martha! BUT she only got 45 seconds in the room, just like the rest of us.

The room really was amazing. I took my photos within the first 5-10 seconds and then put my phone away and just took it all in. My photos really don't do it justice!

We then drove to Burbank to attend a live taping of Undateable. We both love the show and it was so fun to see it filmed live. It's kind of a free for all with lots of improvising. Weezer was the musical guest. They gave away scripts from the episode at the end.

I couldn't get a great photo of us in the audience but I did spot Leeann in this photo

Target Threshold nautical outdoor pillows

The other day I saw the cutest whale pillow in the outdoor section at Target. I just wish I had more room on my balcony! I found the pillow online, and Threshold has several other nautical outdoor pillows! There's also a Threshold whale doormat ($13) that I just ordered.

Las Vegas NYE recap

Like last year, I spent this New Year's Eve in Las Vegas with my family. My sister and I saw Britney Spears (she still has it!) and then the whole group attended a New Year's Eve party at our hotel. Michael Buble performed and we basically had a private cirque du soleil show. It was a blast! And we didn't have to brave the cold or crowds outside on the strip.

Ready to head out (I needed a fancier dress and I found this one on clearance at my local Macy's that is going out of business- $26!)

Party time!

Light up glasses, glow sticks, hats- a very Vegas New Year's Eve

I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve and here's to a wonderful 2016!
