So, it's been a little over a week of blogging in two places and, I gotta tell you. I'm exhausted! Too many ideas, too much time spent to post each, and - for whatever reason - I feel like I'm split in two! I know, I know...chill, girly, it's only blogging and you're not even a blogger, you're a designer. I couldn't agree more. So, because a gal only has so much to say, I think I'm going to say it on my new blog "from cville with love." It's got a fancy banner that I plan to switch out each month. It's got fancy posts and images and links and I promise it will be filled with all of the goodness and love that the laurel denise blog has been filled with for the past year or so. I hope you'll change your readers and update your bookmarks and follow the ins and outs of Laurel Denise, Cute Husband and my crazy ways over at from cville with love.

Yay for a weekend home with Cute Husband. I can't wait to try out some new recipes (or try a few restaurants), eat some takeout, start a new book, and enjoy our little home for a whole weekend. Spring...is...almost...here. Right??

So, I'm trying to make this shirt. Last week, Erin and I spent some quality time with an embroidery book I bought years ago (because wouldn't it be cool to embellish things that I have or make that $300 pillow instead of paying for it??), but I haven't touched it since the first purchase. Last week we went through and actually learned some cool stitches - like the awesome flowery sort of thing you see here. Trial one with a thin white tank from Target didn't go so well. I used the wrong color for the flowers and decided, mid-way through, that I would take those out and start again with a softer white. One word: holes. So many holes in my little white tank, it looked diseased! So that one had to go into the trash immediately. Craft fail. Good thing I have another navy blue one to experiment with this weekend. Just not sure how they manage to get such nice, large flowers and still keep the fabric soft and white. Are they making them separately and then sewing them on? Anyone have a clue? Oh the trials and tribulations of being crafty. It's a tough world, friends, but someone has gotta do it.

I'm stuck inside during the snowicane and honestly can't believe I've seeing another snowstorm this season! Another one? Really? But, I mean, I happen to be "stuck" with one of the cutest kids ever to grace the world and my bestest of best girls, so if a gal is going to be stuck anywhere, that's where it should be. That aside, I'm still oh so done with snow. So this morning I found myself looking at the brightest, happiest shoes I can find on Zappos. Such perfect candy for my winter heart this morning.

Yummy, delicious, funny, sweet, sad and wonderful book: The Middle Place. This book got me through a plane ride on a teeny-tiny-feel-every-single-bump-in-the-cloudy-air plane that had to land to refuel because visibility wasn't good enough at our original destination. The fact that I wasn't having a complete melt down because I can barely handle taking off or landing in a plane just the two times that are usually required is a testament to Kelly Corrigan's writing.
Side note, why oh why oh WHY do those little planes have to be so HOT? Why? I thought maybe Cute Husband and I were going to melt right there into our seats. Really and truly. At least I'd go out reading a good book.
