Sweet Escape: Sunny Days

Nothing like a pop of yellow to sweep the clouds away! I hope you all have a sweet escape planned. We are entering the final week now of wedding frenzy. I am excited to see it all come together. I’m a little sad knowing she is going to be driving off waving goodbye in the end, but hoping to enjoy every last moment making things special. Sunny days, sweeping the clouds away!

Happy sunny day to you all!

More Observation Posts next week, and wedding updates on Twitter too!

Oh, and if you visit me on Twitter you’ll get to hear lots of stuff you don’t find out on my blog, like the latest RAT episode (right on cue, didn’t I tell you last Thanksgiving that we can’t have holidays or events without a rodent involved?)

    I love the yellow with the rattan! The “neutral” for our house is a pale yellow, and we’ve been looking for wicker furniture to go in a few rooms to add much-needed texture. Great to see a picture!

    Wow! That’s definitely a place I could stay in. So pretty and cheerful! Thanks for sharing!

    Good luck with the wedding! I’ve been the mother of the bride, and it is kind of bittersweet. But, the excitement of planning and having the wedding is alot of fun! Worth all the hard work!

    Hey there, Chickie, I don’t know how you’re doing it ALL!

    Take care and don’t let the “mouse” get you down.

  14. Fifi Flowers

    WOW… I think I need an island escape… thanks for enlightening us to wonderful places!
    Book my room!

  15. anne

    I would say thats more of a peachy/orange colour…but great place though.

    Hope all goes well with the wedding, and that you all have a brilliant day.

    I suppose it is different when a daughter gets married. As I don;t have one I will never find out. I did cry the day my eldest son got married though, and not all for the good.

    I just wrote about this hotel – go check it out -look under Oscar de la Renta in the left column – enjoy!!!

  17. Teresa

    You’re so funny- I think you must have many clones? If you don’t have several little mini me’s running around, don’t know how you do it all!- I’m feeling a little intimidated :}- and a wedding on top of that- I’m impressed, you go girl!
    enjoy your weekend-

  18. Annechovie
