5 things . . .

5 things I'm currently digging . . .

1.  Cassie's (over at Hi Sugarplum!) highboy dresser makeover.  Her daughter is one lucky girl to have such a fun and beautiful piece of furniture.

2.  Cole Haan's Violet Air Wingtip Pumps.  These may be the most comfortable pair of shoes ever thanks to the Nike air, the reasonable heel, and the hidden platform (all while still looking stylish too). And I love the wingtip design.

3.  The song Teenage Dream by Katy Perry.  (Maybe I should have kept that one to myself.)  I really disliked the song when it first came out, and now I love it.  Along those same lines, it cracks me up when Rihanna's song Only Girl in the World comes on, and Justin sings along.  It's probably one of those things you have to hear to fully appreciate, but just take my word for it.  

4.  Gingerbread lattes and steamers at Starbucks.  And I am pretty sure it's a fact that they taste better out of the holiday red cups.

5.  The 8x10 trellis rug we got at Garden Ridge for . . .  wait for it . . . $99.00!  Emily over at A Well Dressed Home blogged about the rug, and it met all the criteria for the rug I had been searching for in our office -- inexpensive, gray, and geometric/trellis pattern.  I immediately hit up GR and found it at the bottom of one of the piles of rugs.  It looks great in our office!  Better (non-Blackberry) pictures to follow.


  1. Will check out our GR! Love that rug! Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Wow I love that rug, what an amazing deal! I can't wait to see it in your space.

  3. So jealous of the rug. You better keep an eye on that or it might disappear! he he

  4. What a great deal! I'm so jealous:)

  5. Can't wait to see the rug in your office! Great deal- so funny I was at GR on Friday (the one on Westheimer) because I also keep reading about Emily's (Well Dressed Home) great finds there:)

  6. I am currently obssesed with the pumpkin spice lattes from Starbux! I can't get enough- they make it feel like fall in this humid Miami weather!

  7. I made the same Top 5 list as a trellis rug and gingerbread latte?!?! Sweet! Thanks Emily! :)

  8. The Starbucks and dresser need me asap!


  9. I love all of these!! Glad the rug worked so well for you!
