{my monday with: beach city lifestyle}

hi everyone! hope you all had a great weekend and were able to take some time to reflect and think about things that have special meaning to you. last monday i started a new column that we shall now simply call "my monday with..." where i hope to get many of you to share the things that make you happy and/or have special meaning to you. teri of beach city lifestyle kindly agreed to be the first and some of her favorite things are featured above. teri authors a fun and beautiful blog all about beach lifestyle. we met last october in the blogging your way course and quickly found many commonalities, one of which is living in southern california.

a few fun facts about teri's favorite things: she would grab that book - grace: thirty years of fashion at vogue - in a fire; those black framed glasses belong to her husband and thus represent him amongst her favorite things (aw!); she can't live without her favorite lipsticks and wears her tiffany bangles and bobbi brown beach every day; the tiny chanel bag was a vintage find (!); she loves looking for beach rocks and finding the perfect ones; and doesn't leave home without her mac laptop and iphone. oh, and teri found that bird nest on her porch...the eggs never hatched! gotta love the wonder of nature. i love that teri was able to get biscuit into the photo!

thank you, teri, for popping by today. it was so nice to see what makes your monday a little brighter. hm, who will pop by next month? happy monday everyone!


ps~i can't leave you today without wishing my significant other a very happy birthday, which definitely calls for some of this goodness!!

  3. Hi Theresa-
    THis is so cute! I love how you labeled everything. You're so darn creative! Biscuit was happy to pose. She's very nosey and then proceeded to try and eat the bird's nest (which is why I keep a glass dome over it!) The nerve.  xo Teri

  6. Awww cupcakes yum,  I couldn't resist opening the link, it had to be something naughty but nice :-)  Happy birthday Mr. T :-D.  I love the variety of Teri's My Monday, what a great start to the series.  I wonder what bird laid those eggs, they seem very tiny, any ideas ?? Biscuit is rocking the monochrome styling laid out against the white background.  Happy Monday xx

  7. Oh hooray, Teri! None of this surprises me, so it tickles to me to see how we're all getting to know each other. I think I need to go test out Bobbi Brown's Beach. Might be time to make a switch from my everyday. And Teri, I have a blue bowl filled with white rocks from our time in San Diego. It's one of my greatest treasures. This tidbit about you has reminded me to take it out from hiding!

    And Theresa, sender of one of the most gorgeous thank you notes ever, happy happy day to your hubs and your whole family. xoxo

  9. Well, it's nice to know more about Teri and what she enjoys.  The computer and phone - exactly.  I'd love to look at that book!  Also the cat is adorable, and her honey's glasses - sweet.  Great idea, T, and hi there, Teri!

  20. Very good question, Sam. What teeny-tiny bird laid those eggs? I suppose we might never know. Thank you for the birthday wishes.

  21. I've never smelled Bobbi Brown's Beach. When I saw it in Teri's favorite things, it piqued my interest. You two collect beach rocks and I collect sticks. :)
    So happy you received the thank you note. Least I could do after receiving such a wonderful gift. Happy day, indeed. Thank you!
