Yes, she is dramatic....and fashion should not be this stressful. But it sure is fun watching her find clothes and jewelry..I am talking about none other than Rachel Zoe. Catch The Rachel Zoe project on Netlkix and Bravo for some good laughs!

Here are my FAV Rachel Zoe quotes....

On her weight"Truthfully, I've never seen myself as being too thin. Sometimes I'll look at photos and be like, 'Oh, that's not a good look.' But generally speaking, I'm not too thin."

On "dying" for fashion "Just throw me in my coffin now with those earrings on.""I'm having a Chanel heart attack right now."

On pregnancy fears "I just wish Rodger would carry it. I’m actually not scared of getting fat at all, but am I physically strong enough? I’m not the epitome of strength, exactly."

On quality over quantity"As far as I can remember, every dime I ever had went to something extravagant. I would rather spend more, buy fewer items and have them forever."

"On style icon Kate Moss"We're obsessed with the way Kate looks - Wellington boots with shorts? Who else could get away with that?"

On tabloid rumors "Every other day there's something - I'm dealing drugs, I'm starving people. I have never done a drug in my life."

On her birthday gift from husband Rodger"You got me Dylan McKay's car?"

On cooking a Thanksgiving turkey"You realize that this has become, like, Cameron Diaz's, like, Oscar dress. It wakes me up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat."

On her favorite print"I think every woman should have leopard, but not every woman will wear leopard. You have to have courage to wear leopard."

On husband Rodger"Babe, I’m so over your heterosexuality and this whole man thing you’re trying to do right now."

What about the shoes? Yes, this is her job, but quite an impressive collection don't you think?

I love her dreamy bed and all the fashion books.....

And since you all loved my closet pictues, here are some of my favorite dream closets.....
Do you all remember this one?

Carrie's dream closet from Sex and the City...

Olivia Palermo's closet in her Greenwich Village apartment.....

Mariah Carey's closet in her NYC apartment...

I mean, this is unreal. She has a closet. In Manhattan. Bigger than most people's homes.

This is a picture of Miley Cyrus' closet. Pretty sweet. I love the idea of the ladders for the shelves for shoes....

Christina Aguilera's impressive spread of shoes. She groups by brand...Christians, Alexander McQueens, Jimmy Choo's......wowzers...

Fergie turned 2 bedrooms into a full walk-in closet...I love the design of the closet.

And this one belongs to the queen of daytime....Oprah herself. What about the latern like lamps? I love them. Such a classic look....

This is my second favorite...Miss Paris Hilton's. I love the feminine mirrors and chandeliers. Gorgeous!!!!

And my favorite!!!! Nanette Lepore's closet, designed by Jonathan Adler. Love the blue, leopoard, and the painting!!!

Hope you enjoyed the tour!!!

A really hip girl working at Anthropologie had one of these cool Saints bracelets on. I fell in love! I found one on Etsy. Don't you girls love??

Friday night I went to Encores and More Consignment Pre-Sale. Let me just say that the pre-sale was pretty crazy. I could NOT imagine going on Saturday. If anyone went, I would love to know how wild it was? Did anyone get hurt? Was pushing and shoving involved?

This was my best buy. A $250 Britax Roundabout car seat for $40 in GREAT shape!

I really wanted the cowmooflauge to match my other, so I just ordered a cover for it.

I picked up this precious doll house for $15 bucks for Paisley.

I loved this dress made by Bonnie Jean. I think Paisley will wear it for Easter. I heart tulle.

On Saturday, me and my BFF Amy HH took all the kiddos to see Barney Live: Baby Bop's Birthday. It was so much fun! Even Griffin really enjoyed it! He looked so handsome in his little bright blue sweater, skinny jeans, and pirate Robeez. I could just eat him up. I can't wait until we get to go on little dates. He also will kiss you and it is the cutest thing ever!!

Paisley was more interested in singing and streamers than Barney. She does LOVE Baby Bop. Paisley has discovered the word "nervous" and she uses it in all the wrong ways. It is hilarious.
My BFF Amy and her little girl Grace who was obsessed with Barney. She was still checking him out!
Afterwards, we met our husbands and went to Fiesta Azteca for dinner.

On Sunday, we skipped church. I know, we are awful. But I am traveling all week and so is Stephen, and sometimes you need family time. We packed up the kids and headed to the zoo around 10:30am. It was great! You should definitely visit the Nashville Zoo if you are ever in town. Wonderful!!

They have an awesome park and play area inside. Paisley loves this swinging bridge inside the play ground.
Stephen pushing Griffin...He loves to ride in the stroller....

We were feeling adventurous, so we also decided to walk and tour the Croft house. The Croft sisters donated their personal land to the city of Nashville for a zoo to be built on. It is really neat and I encourage you to visit, also!
Livestock at the Croft home...
Paisley and Griffin just chilling....

Griffin enjoying apple juice....

Paisley big, poufy heart LOVES the merry-go-round. As in, we ride it 10 times. Griffin liked it, too!! This was his first time riding!

Afterwards, we went to eat at Local Taco in Brentwood (right behind the Exon station on Franklin Road.) It is right beside Judge Beans. This place is AWESOME!!

They have the best taco plates. I tried the Korean BBQ and the Vegetarian, both delicious!!
It is also very kid friendly!! And the sangria is scrumptious!!!

I hope you all had a nice weekend! We have spent President's Day eating a late breakfast at Waffle House, shopping, and went to a play date at a friend's house.

PS- Whoever comments first on this post wins a SAINTS bracelet!! And don't forget to comment under my fashion post and comment for the cupcake maker!!

If you are having a baby in the next few years, I would HIGHLY suggest a stop by the Encores and More consignment sale tomorrow in Franklin, Tennessee. It is at 200 Beasley Drive, inside an old warehouse. The sales opens to the public at 12pm noon. Take a wagon/stroller/shopping cart, because you will need it. The shopping carts were scarce. And this is NOT a place for kids. They are actually not even allowed, unless they are in a Bjorn Carrier.

My sweet friend Jennifer had an extra pre-sale pass, so I was able to go early and let me just say...I walked away with TONS.....over 100 items of clothes, a Britax Roundabout car seat, two Fisher Price toys, and a dollhouse for Paisley. I spent $249.00. The carseat was only $40.00!!!!

The best deal of all were the toys!!!

But they have adult clothes, kids, shoes, furniture, EVERYTHING!

Can't wait to hear about your deals!!


PS- They take cash, debit, and credit cards. No checks.


This blonde-headed kid Cracks cracks me up singing Forget You by Cee Lo Green.


Jacob Lusk brought me to tears last night!!
What a singer!!

If someone could make the payment every month on this 2011 Infinit Q56 in burgundy, and then let me drive it, ohhhh it would be SWEET................I am not a car person, but this is superfine...

I am also a big fan of these Brussel Sprouts...when Stephen is out of town, this is usually my dinner.

I also love these soft cotton blazers from Old Navy. They are super comfy and look so cute over tanks and leggings. Add ballet flats, Toms, or Uggs, and you have a casual Saturday outfit!!

How cute is this for Griffin?! He will be pimping this at the pool this summer...Old Navy Fedora.

Love this silk bag from Old Navy...

ANd how adorbale is this from Etsy??!
Love the Mod Barbie print....

Speaking of Barbie, do you girls remember Peaches and Cream...She was my favorite!
Here is Betty Draper, aka January Jones, from Mad Men....

The Happy Birthday Ken, Barbie
And speaking of the Latino Barbie and Ken, (actually, Marc Anthony is no Ken. Let's be honest. It was his LUCKY day) check out JLo and Marc's newest LA home.....gorgeous.

Can you imagine what cheetos and juice boxes would look like here? And they have twins?
The twins must live down the street. But gorgeous none the less!!
You can see all of the house in Veranda magazine....

I must say I LOVE the new Idol. JLO is so gorgeous!! I loved this outfit!!!

And how funny is Steven Tyler?? Hysterical.

Did anyone watch the dog show? I love Westminster. Reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Best In Show!

And I have had some fashion e-mails, so here are some answers:
If I could pick one new bag for spring, what would it be?
I would definitely pick something in gold, that way, it matches black and fun spring colors.

I purchased this Tory Burch bag for half the cost off of E-Bay.....Love it!!

Speaking of Tory, I loved her runway looks and these platforms!!

What are YOU loving???
