Looking forward: Tomorrow on Be Lovely

Wednesdays will be designated for music, movie, and book reviews...starting next Wednesday :) We are still in the middle of our move so my days are mostly consumed with that. I won't leave you hanging, though! Tomorrow I will explain what's up with Be Lovely; what it means and why I named the blog that.
Thank you for the comments, and thank you to my (drum roll please) 3 followers :) Thanks for your support and tell your friends!
I know the blog is pretty vacant as of now. I really look forward to getting my computer back and having an internet connection at my house again.
I'll leave you with this photo of my garden at the new place. I'm going to do a few projects to clean it up and add some color but there are a few gems like these trumpet flowers. I will, of course, be posting about the gardening process.
Lots to look forward to!
Be lovely!
PS I apologize if the photo is HUGE on your screen, or if the photo doesn't show up. I'm posting this from my phone. I'll fix it in the morning!

Lovely Parties

We are preparing for yet another move. When all the packing and unpacking, moving and lifting begins to overwhelm me, I focus on the light at the end of the tunnel. Not only will we be settled in and comfortable in a new home, but we will also be throwing a house-warming party! What better way to warm a new home then to enjoy the company of lots of friends and eat lots of good food!
I was immediately inspired by this image in Design* Sponge's "Beyond the Big Day: Pancake Breakfast" post. You can find it here.
I plan on making lots of pancakes and having a sort-of "upside down dinner" (as my momma would call it) with breakfast as the main course, decaf coffee and maybe even mimosas for my guests.

What are some of your favorite breakfast recipes?

Thanks for reading and be lovely!

Under Construction

If anyone is having trouble leaving comments please let me know! I'm still working through the kinks (obviously)! I also don't have Internet at my house so I'm trying to navigate most of this from my phone which gets trickey.
Thanks for reading and be lovely!

Work in Progress

I am starting this blog as an outlet. I suppose that is why most people start blogs or write in journals. As a wife, a mother, a student, a friend, and all the things those positions encompass, I have little that belongs to just me. My hope for this blog is that it would be a place for me to go that feels personal to my own tastes and would also speak to my readers, whoever they may be. As you can see, the layout is unfinished. That will come with time, I'm busy!

So, what's to come?

I will be posting about some of my favorite things: Design (interior and clothing), food and entertaining, music, movies, books, vacations, and DiY projects. I may even throw in some current events and issues. I am going to try to post daily, but bare with me!

Thanks for reading, tell your friends and start following my blog! =)
And most importantly...
Be lovely!
