Monday Morning {P}Inspirations

Whew! What a whirlwind weekend. We had a wedding that my girls were flower girls in, a 4th birthday party for Kara, and the last few days of my mom down visiting.  It was a great weekend, but now I am looking forward to things quieting down for the week-until Friday that is, which is Nat's last day of Kindergarten. Which means-it will officially be summer vacation starting Saturday.  It's about to get all kinds of crazy around here then, folks.  

Let's forget about that for now and get inspired for the week ahead, shall we?  I really enjoy putting together these posts full of images and links that I love to kick-start our week!

This image of Rachel Zoe has me inspired to scour thrift stores for a vintage lace applique dress.  So gorgeous! I wouldn't mind the Chanel bag either, but we all know that isn't happening!

Don't Give Up Now- So is it bad to say that I am already exhausted by the thought of summer vacation?  I have a feeling this is going to be a long one and that I will be repeating this is my head from early on!

Loving this comfy little spot- striped slip-covered sofa, big fluffy peonies,  French doors open to the yard beyond, a nice glass of white wine...pure Heaven if you ask me!

In other news, I totally conquered the making of the juices!  With my mom down I had the confidence to give it a go and it was so easy.  I feel really dumb now for thinking it would be such a production.  I've made two types of juices-the "Perfect Morning Essential" and the "Serious Detox" recipes from this site.  Both were very tasty, and I am by no means a vegetable person.  I will probably post more about my adventures with my juice maker as I try more recipes.

Also, don't forget to stop by 100 Inspirations today, where I recreated a bold and modern Nicole Richie look!

And the winner of the Vaseline lotion giveaway is Holly! Congrats! Thanks to all who entered.

Have a sweet day!
