pat's birthday surprise!

on sunday, i surprised pat with an overnight 35th birthday trip to the city. i was able to secretly get him a vacation day at his work for monday. after arriving at our hotel, le meridien hotel, we went on a mini pub crawl and had dinner at the capital grille. it was a day filled with yummy beers, lots of good eats and of course, some cupcakes. thank you to kathy for the room. it was amazing!!!!!

while we were away, i had my mom set up everything at home for his birthday dinner on valentine's day!


happy birthday to most amazing, funny, happy, hard-working, stylish, red-headed, blue-eyed, bartending, yellow sneaker wearing, wine loving, romantic, silly, and loving husband and best friend a girl could ask for. hope you enjoyed your birthday suprises this weekend. love you.

i have been on a very long search for unique wallpaper for our downstairs hallway. it has been pretty tough convincing my husband how fabulous wallpaper is these days and that it isn't like our grandmother's floral prints anymore. check out these amaaaazing designs by italian designers wall & deco. i absolutely love these first two (letterpress + sans).

some other really fun patterns.
