Gap kids is having an AMAZING sale!!! All clearance product is an additional 25% off the lowest marked price!!! Really you must run to your local store.....in store prices are MUCH lower than on line!!! I bought this fabulous "mexican inspired" tunic dress for under $8!!!!!
I promise.... this sale is not to be missed, especially if you have girls (great selection of cute product)!
I love to stock up on "gifts" and next year's summer clothes for Oden when prices get this low!!! Happy shopping!!!

I'm having a little "mini obsession" with these fabulous director's chairs found here! They are only $49 and come in amazing assortment of colored finishes....you even get to pick your canvas seat color!!! So chic! (Check out the orange and white combo- very hermes)!
I'm thinking of using the bar height in my new kitchen!!! At this amazing price, 10 barstools won't break the bank!!! Hurray!

Thought I would share a simple and inexpensive "birthday gift" idea......
I just fell in love with these "sweet treats" from Trader Joe's (I am a total sucker for great packaging)!!! Isn't that ship illustration AMAZING?
.....and thought it would be fun to do a "sugar" and "spice" gift
concept! So the candy and cookies from Trader Joe's are the "sugar" and then I purchased a lovely basil and rosemary scented candle as my "spice" (I know, technically an herb...but you get the idea!) and added a little hand written note that read:
A little Sugar and Spice and everything Nice to help celebrate your birthday!!!!
Yeah!!! One more birthday gift out the door!!!

Oden attended a darling "circus" birthday party for his good buddy Bella this weekend! I was so inspired by the sweet invitation (purchased on etsy) that I thought it would be fun to wrap the gift in "theme"!
Lion card and Pink Medallion card both from Hicks Paper Goods!
Hope you all had a great weekend!!!

My dear friend Kayce just turned me on to Aerie...the lingerie concept by American Eagle! I feel like I have just discovered the greatest treasure ever! So perfectly my style! Plus when I visited the store today everything was an additional 30% off (through July 4th) of already marked down prices!!! I purchased the grey bra pictured for only $7 and matching panties for $3.50!!!!! If you have a local store you really must go look....it is so helpful to see all of these lovely pieces in person!!!
I was so excited I even came home and purchased some additional pieces online (where sale is only 20% off...but in some cases items are less expensive on line). Either way you must see for your self! I am so thrilled with my much needed new lingerie purchases!
