Fabulous Find Friday!

Don't you worry about us here in Austin...we're just dying from pollen overload. And don't think I'm talking about myself. No, no. I'm talking about my high maintenance Yorkie who has "allergies" and has to get a cortisone shot every summer because of his grass allergies. Good thing we're having early onset from all of the pollen. I now have him on Claritin. My dog. Ay-yi-yi.

But if you think for one second that all of this pollen nonsense is going to keep me from enjoying the great outdoors and all it has to offer....you could be right. It's just brutal. So I'm looking forward. I'm looking beyond my now-yellow car, beyond my driveway covered in the oak tree droppings that stick to everything (including Rookie every.single.time. he goes out to go to the bathroom and then brings it in on my rugs...), to a better time. A time when people come over and eat and drink and laugh and sit outside for hours. I like those times. Here are a few of my current obsessions!
I just love this drink cart! Or "Rolling Party Bucket" as PB likes to put it.
These Talavera plates and platters are great! So colorful and fun.
I just love drink dispensers. I have met very few I didn't like. They even make ice water fun!
This is just a fun centerpiece I saw on Marthastewart.com. I love the use of the appetizer as the centerpiece.
Are you hosting a Derby Party? The Kentucky Derby is May 1st...I think Mint Juleps would be the perfect addition!
Check out this post I did last summer with fun (and some FREE) ideas for decorating and entertaining. Happy Friday, Friends!!

Hi Tiffany! I'm so glad you stumbled onto my blog, because now I've found yours! You are so funny! I love it! AND you look SO familiar to me! I can't figure out why or where, but I know we must have "bumped" into each other before... maybe around town! Where do y'all live in RR? We live behind Ikea in Teravista. Actually, the field is right over near there behind the business park that is behind the Ikea shopping center. It is gorgeous! Thanks so much for the sweet words about my lil man... he's a mess! :) Excited to have a new blog friend... and one that lives in the Rock! :) Happy weekend!

I thought about doing a Derby party. But then my husband's flaky friend canceled on coming in that weekend, & I felt like it was too late to start rethinking the entire thing. Maybe next year. Or maybe somebody else I know has a fabulous Derby party planned, & I just haven't gotten my invitation yet. =)

Hope the pollen gets out of your hair (literally) soon. It's coating us in Alabama, too!
