I'd Rather Be In The Hamptons

Saturday we leave for Destin, Florida for the Beer Industry League Convention. Yes, my husband works for a brewery. But I would rather go to the Hamptons. I have this obsession with that area and dream of what it would be like to "summer" over there. The architecture is beautiful, the people are beautiful, and the shopping is not an airbrushed t shirt shop.
If I went there I would look like this:

and I would party with these guys:

here is where I would stay:

and i would shop here:

oh well, I'll just vacation like this:

and try to find a spot to park my fat ass.

Goodwill Find Of The Century

Mid century white vinyl barcalounger with chrome on arms and legs...I almost had to challenge a guy to a dual over it in the middle of goodwill.

Long and lean orange velvet sofa

This bad boy came home with me

and now lives here in Brian's office...very mad men. I told him don't start asking me to mix martini's for you.

Mrs. Roper wore them...why can't I?

I always thought Mrs. Roper was a fantastic role mode. Not only did she look stylish but she could party with the best of them. I wish wearing a caftan everyday was acceptable. Not only are they amazing but are perfect on days when you feel like a fat whale.
Here is the other one that own. I bought it at the Nashville Flea Market and it is one of my favorite things:

This one is a beautiful eggplant color that zips up the front. Love....
Here is the room that I think reflects this moo moo of mine:

My Love Present

My partner in design crime gave me a "love present" the other day that made me verklempt. An amazing vintage caftan, which to my family's dismay, I where around the house and fix dinner in.

If this little piece of luxury was a room, it would look like this:

Don't you love it when someone gets you?

Back To Reality

Tybee is an amazing island 30 minutes from Savannah and if you need laid back no shoes required beach town...this is it.

I looked for a building that said time to drink a vodka tonic but couldn't find one

I did find a lighthouse (that's me in the striped skirt)

and a massive jelly fish which gave me an insane urge to stab repeatedly but I was afraid that people might think I had lost my mind.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Let the good times roll because life is good and everyone is healthy. I am leaving Thursday for Tybee Island with the girls and it is well needed. Pics will be posted next week so in the mean time this is what's making me happy:

my new old navy chevron swimsuit I got for $11 today

a pirate chandelier

Florence Broadhurst...she was such a rock star

and a  great beach read

I Need Your Guru To Send Me Love and Light

My father in law is very sick and my son's car died last night. At 3am I'm driving on Ambien to pick him up so now I'm stressed out and need some serenity or Valium to calm my butt down. My calming color is green so I'll try that:

do you think I will ever find those chairs at the GW?

If I had this bathroom, I would never leave it
