Happy 100!

100 posts, can you believe it?  Most people have giveaways, but…. I don’t have anything fun to giveaway.  Sorry!!  I am not a pro-blogger ;)

My sister, Allison, is an interior designer (check out her design blog: Design Life) and I ask her for stuff all the time.  Well, I had a centerpiece in my dining room that I used for Christmas decor but I wanted to use it year round.  So, she suggested for Easter/spring time to do something like this:
Loverly.  Took about 3 minutes and a few dollars.  My kind of centerpiece.  It isn’t Easter time anymore (hasn’t been for a while), so I bought all of this at Garden Ridge today. 

And it became this for summer time!  Doesn’t everyone automatically think beach when you think of the summer?  Well, maybe not everyone, but I know I do!  And, I know I still need plates and maybe I should move the birds, but I love them and they love me.  I just can’t do that to my pals.
Now, I can’t wait for our vacation to Gulf Shores at the end of the summer! Woohoo!

Did I forget to mention that Jeremy and I bought the furniture from the previous post?!  Well, we went that night and bought them.  My heart fell in love when I saw my new loves. 
The dresser has a mirror that we took off to fit in the bed of the truck.  No worries, it is a complete set!  Do you just love them as much as I do?
