I haven’t had anytime to make new posts this week due to my busy work schedule and my closet reorganization (which is taking a little longer than expected). And here I am again off to another girls weekend at the beach. This time we are staying at my parents beach house in Rehoboth Beach, DE. I have been going to Rehoboth Beach ever since I was a little girl and I love going there, not only because of the beach but the town of Rehoboth has the cutest shops and restaurants. I am super excited to get away for the weekend and relax with the girls.

Decor Inspiration

Since I am working on redoing my closet, I have been looking for other inspiration to add to my room. After seeing the image above, I got inspired to want to antique my own mirrors and make a collage like the one above for a wall in my room. Hopefully it will be a success and I can post about how to antique mirrors!

This week I finally got over my cold and started to work on my closet reorganization (post to come soon). August already seems to be flying by. I have been super busy at work this week but I want to share some photos of what I am loving right now.

Shrimp and Mushroom Pasta

This week I went over to Emile’s house and cooked dinner. I do like to try to make new dishes and usually just surf the internet to find something that hits my fancy. I found this recipe here, and I will say it was a big hit!  The only change that I did make was that it asked for 2 cups of cream, but I only did 1 cup. What was even better was the leftovers I had the next day!

Harrisburg

I was in Harrisburg this past weekend for a wedding, while I had a good time, unfortunately I was fitting a virus the whole weekend which left me extremely congested and low on energy. :/ not so fun. But I made the best of it, and the wedding was beautiful. Harrisburg is a cute town, with some great old architecture. Our friends had the reception at a museum in downtown Harrisburg which I thought was a pretty unique place to have your wedding reception.

I have decided to start a traditional Friday Post that mentions some of the things that have been inspiring me lately. Between my new obsession with jewels and going away to a wedding this weekend, I would say these images have been inspiring me this week.
