Miscellany Monday

{ONE} I didn't get to watch a lot of the red carpet last night, but when I turned the tv on the first person I saw was Cate Blanhcett and I LOVED her dress.  This might be the prettiest I have ever seen her.  Love the color.  Love her hair.  Love that little pop of yellow!

{TWO}  Mom came through Nashville last week for a conference and dropped of a box of my old barbies!  It was so fun to go through.  I remembered every single little accessory.  SO many memories packed in that box with all the naked dolls (clothes were in another box!).  Of course I had to play with them all...

Pictured above: Jordan from NKTB, my very first ballerina barbie, RockStar Ken w/ lots of hair, little sister barbie, Beach Barbie, Stacey, Little Kelley, barbie, and Kristi (from Babysitter's Club)
Mom's conference was at Opryland Hotel.  I had such a blast hanging out and staying a night at the hotel with her -- we even got to spend time in the storm shelter when all the tornados were touching down all around Nashville!

{THREE} Have I mentioned that my favorite restaurant of all time is Silly Goose?  I'm pretty sure it's Magnolia's too!  We had a great late lunch Saturday when my twin sissy came into town!

{the King Kong: shrimp, couscous, avocado, cashews, and spice!}
{a wonderfully warm weekend}
{FOUR}  I've been receiving some really sweet baby love recently.  Magnolia got her first monogramed blanket.  So fun to see her sweet name. Thank you baby Mac (& momma).  My super crafty friend Destiny surprised me with a stamped initial and turquoise necklace with an M for Magnolia -- I love it and wear it basically everyday!  {Check out Destiny's blog HERE and her jewelry line HERE.}  Sissy brought Magnolia a "my auntie is #1" onesie this weekend -- it's perfect.  Four of my wonderful co-workers brought me/Magnolia a box of thin mints after over hearing that I was having a craving (I got 4 boxes in one day!).  My sweet momma and mother-in-law have also helped me out with some super cute maternity clothes.  And I have gotten so many sweet notes of congratulations and encouragement... I am feeling the love!
