Lake Placid is the Cat’s Meow

Strip me of my Leibster! I am the worst blogger ever!!!!! Ok no, I’m not, but life has finally caught up. Long gone are the days of me sitting around with nothing to do but obsess over Surrounded By Pretty. Fortunately, I am one happy lady. Love love loving interning, school isn’t nearly as stressful, […]

It’s Beeeeginning to look A-lot like AU-tumn

I get pretty festive around this time of year, then it fizzles out around… well, I don’t know, it’s been becoming less and less every year. But when I feel blue, super ‘cited, or crave change I really have at it. This weekend was a combo between craving change and having some super cute frands […]

On a DIY Roll: Pop of Color

I am taking DIYs by storm. All this talk about not being a DIYer is proving me to be a liar. This one also involves spray paint, it’s kind of my thing. I went into blogging dreaming of J.Crew and Elle Decor to be knock on my door, but in all actuality if anyone was […]

Keepin’ it Chic: Halloween Edition

I love me some Halloween, hub does not. I used to throw a cray cray Halloween Party every year but, and I don’t know if you know much about New Jersey’s Halloween track record, but it’s not too good. Our first year in our home we were going to to a Halloween/Housewarming. But it snowed. […]

Retail Can be Fresh, Here’s my Fab 4

I get a lot of texts from friends and family asking where to find _________ (end table, coffee table, lamp, couch, etc etc). I’ll give you my secret, it’s not really a secret. I am a searching fiend. I love online browsing, I love it even more when there’s a purpose and a budget. I have […]

Come and Knock on my Door

My whoooole entire life I wanted a white colonial (check) with black shutters (check) and a red door. Soooooooo original. So original that we didn’t paint our door red because our neighbor lives in a white colonial with black shutters and a red door. We opted for plum instead. Why? Because plum is awesome, that’s […]

Stylin’ n’ Organizin’

I had a request for a post on bedroom organization. This is hysterical because I am the most unorganized human being on this planet. I happened to have married the neatest man on the planet, notice I didn’t say organized. He’s neat, he ain’t organized, but this is not a place for my to air […]

Show me your “O”ffice

So, I’ve kind of turned into a real life adult this week. Besides not being able to check TMZ every 15 minutes, not having tabs on every single one of my FB friends, and waking up before 10am, I’m working in an office. A real, life office. Ok, so the office isn’t MINE but I’m […]

LIEBSTER? I barely even know her!!!!

I have been nominated for a Liebster Award by The Nenja! I’m an avid blog meanderer and I’ve been seeing this award nomination and I was kinnnnda sorrrtaaaa like “waaaah why not meeee??” And VOILA! I got one! It’s funny, I write this blog, stalk my views (much less than I used to), but I […]

Closet Dreamin’

There was a catastrophe at Surrounded by Pretty Headquarters on Friday. I picked up some fun pants on a last minute back to school (finally interning) shopping run. Part of my “Shopping Ritual” includes the introducing of my new goodies into their new home. To make it even more special I did all of the […]
