I have been a Marley Lilly fan for a while, but lately every time I look at the Marley Lilly website I see another new monogrammed item that is a must have. Here are my current favorite picks that are perfect summer time accessories.
How adorable is this Monogrammed bandeau bathing suit top?
I have been eyeing up these monogrammed wayfarers for a while. I think they may be my next purchase.
I love envelope purses, and I love the bright yellow for summer.
This monogrammed wine tote, would be perfect to take to bbqs and summer parties.
This cheese and cracker tray would make a great entertaining essential.
If you haven't checked out Marley Lilly lately...go now.
This past weekend I flew from Pittsburgh to NYC to surprise my Grammy for her 80th Birthday Celebration. My Aunt had also flown in from Colorado on Friday as a surprise. I love surprises!!!
It was a complete success.
We had a great time browsing and shopping at a street fair near Times Square, and loved getting to spend time with sister JLP.
We ran into the Naked Cowboy, who loved the birthday girl.
After some shopping we enjoyed a delicious lunch in Bryant Park, love this picture of Dad and I.
We gave Grammy the scrap book all of our family members had put together for her. I love looking at old pictures of everyone.
Yesterday was both Mother's Day and my Mom's Birthday so it was so nice getting to celebrate both holidays with her.
Happy Birthday SDP!

After lunch JLP and I went to see How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, starring Nick Jonas and Beau Bridges.
The performance was fabulous, and Nick Jonas not only has a great voice but was a great actor as well.
After our plays we met at The View at the top of the Marriott Marquis for some cocktails. The View is a revolving rooftop restaurant that rotates 360 degrees each hour and you get such a great view of the entire city.
If you have never been I recommend it!
Our dinner at Becco was delicious. I wish I had taken pictures of the food because everything was so tasty. I had the homemade pasta special and enjoyed mushroom ravioli, penne and vodka sauce with shrimp, and a garlic olive oil linguine with broccolini. YUM!
The whole day was wonderful, and I hope Grammy had a great 80th birthday. I love getting together with my family, and I wish we could all get together more.
I don't know about you, but during the spring and summer months my daily purse is usually some form of a tote bag. I love the bright colors and the extra space to throw in bathing suits, suntan lotion, etc. I tend to use my Long Champ and Herve Chapelier much more in the summer then I do in the winter. I think part of the reason is I am outside a lot more and always throwing my purse on the ground or in the grass at BBQ's or outdoor concerts and it is nice to have a bag that is easy to clean off or wash.
This year I am in the market for a new tote, and there are so many great options I can't decide.
Has anyone else seen kale EVERYWHERE recently? Within the last few months I've seen Kale all over, advertised at the grocery store, offered in salads, side dishes, but most popular of all is the Kale Chip. I feel like everyone is making and/or talking about kale chips.
Side note: This reminds of me of the pomegranate obsession of a few year ago.
Well, I have definitely jumped on the bandwagon. and understand what the hype is. It is so easy to make, so delicious, and so healthy.
Kale contains a lot of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and anti -cancer ( not sure what that it but it sounds excellent) nutrients.
