New Cards

I've been working on these bad boys (and other branding items) for months now and I think I'm finally happy with them.

And que drumroll...

Week Recap...

We've been in another world this week and it's coming to a close tomorrow.

The view, the breeze, the freedom...it's all been a bit surreal.

I hope you all had a good week as well and, as crazy as I sound, I can't wait to get back to work and back to business. Lots of good news coming my way and next week will be full of change!

Have a good weekend,

xo Cat!

Hi from the Beach

Well hello there! Apologies for the lack of a heads up but I am at ze beach for the week and it's been amazing thus far.

It's a tad unnerving cause I've got a lot going on with work and we all know how my OCD self is with lists and feeling behind.

That being said, I'm pretty sure I can cope with not siting in front of my computer all day.

Hope you all have a great week and I'll check back in soon.

Peace and Love,
xo Cat

Happy Friday

I'm lucky enough to live near the water and it's been a forgotten luxury that I never take for granted. Sunsets, Kayaking, and Relaxation are all this little hideaway of ours requires.

I've got posts to finish putting together so I can share, until then...I hope you all have an amazing weekend.

Color Lust

If you haven't already seen this it's growing popularity by the minute...and you'll be in shock with all of the color palettes the designer was able to put together. 

I'm not a huge Bey fan (musically) but I do think she's beautiful and these swatch/image combos knocked me off my feet!

I Did it Again!!

The Avo and Apple Slices are back again...

I know I shared this amazing breakfast/snack/meal with you all recently, but I've been on this kick weekly and it just keeps getting better and better. I've had some produce I need to be creative with, and soon, because it's all perfectly ripe.

So this morning, I added strawberries and pear to my little stackers and it was the perfect combination of juicy, sweet, crunchy, deliciousness. I've got some peaches I'm going to either a) bake with later this eve or b) throw onto stacks tomorrow. Regardless of what I do with them they are deliciousness waiting to be slurped up!

Happy Hump Day! xo Cat

Monday Pinning...

Monday's have sort of become my day for brainstorming, catching up to speed after the weekend, and for getting my list of to-do's in order for the week ahead.

With the transition I've been experiencing with my home/work life...it's been a bit tougher to stick to just work-related lists...but all will settle soon (I hope). Until then, I'll keep rolling with the punches I suppose; there's no other choice really now is there.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. If you can believe it, I didn't take many weekending pics at all...I'll see what I've got but I'm pretty sure you don't need or want to see pictures of my cat in cute curled up positions sleeping all wknd...but that's pretty much the gist of what I did. It was relaxing and quiet and fun and I hope yours was too.

For now, let's pretend today is going to be amazingly productive and that I have all the time in the world to use pinning away (and keep in mind that this is pretty relevant and important stuff because it is going to be used in my real life at some point in the very near future...so take that guilty conscience). There's no order to them at all and they're just simply things I love.

Happy Monday

Healthy Refreshment!

Smoothies have been my go to lately...haven't touched my juicer in a minute. Maybe it's because I'm lazy and cleaning my juicer is a pain in the ass or maybe I'm not lazy and I just love the cold, smooth, semi-thickness my smoothies bring to me in the form of Joy!

Whatever the reason, take some time today to sip slowly and breathe deep and relax as long as possible.

Mango, Straws, Blues, Nanas, Oranges, Coco Water...good vibes!

Hump Day Design...

While we wait to hear about the fourth (yes FOURTH) home we're making an offer on in the last three months, I'm dreaming of all of the fun DIY's and Design ideas I can conjure up visually. As you know by now, I'm an extreme list maker and if you could see how many different "home ideas" lists I've got going you'd think I was insane.

Here's to good design and prayers that this is our last and final hurdle to getting our Home Sweet Home.

Happy Hump Day!

Tuesday Style...A Sweet Summer Evening Date

Now that I'm back and getting settled into reality here, I thought how great it'd be
if the Man and I could have a nice sweet date night. Having roughed it for three days,
in sneakers I only where when hiking or for some other type of athletic function,
in plain old tanks and ratty hair, getting gussied up for a night of make-up wearing,
feminine feeling, good 'ole love and laughter would fit the bill. 

Here's my ideal evening-to-dusk and dinner on a patio somewhere outfit. 

Happy Tuesday!
