A very good week and Happy Birthday Finley!


This has been a great week in spite the dip the temperatures took in the past few days, all things considered I have been blessed with a great week. On Wednesday, Finley turned one year old! For his birthday celebration, we had cake, party hats, long walks, and belly rubs. That is his birthday bone cake.
For dinner he had Tilapia.
And his very favorite gift was his new pair of cool Oliver Peoples sunglasses.

On Sunday I went to a Billy Harvey -BILLYHARVEY.COM -concert in my friend Emily's living room. It was a very cool and intimate soiree with the lyrical genius of one Billy Harvey. The show was really great. Billy totally connected with his audience and the cozy, friendly atomosphere just added to the great entertainment. One of his new songs almost made me cry, the lyrics were thoughtful and true about how we are all different, but when you get down to it we are all the same--really beautiful. I cannot wait for his new album. You can check out Billy's music on YouTube or at his website.
Also on Wednesday, PROJECT RUNWAY started. I have been looking forward to this for months. It looks to be an awesome season with tons of excitement. +


My husband made the night even sweeter by saying that designer Kevin looks like the love child of Santino Rice and Joey Fatone--HA! I could not agree more. I cannot wait to see it unfold. I cannot tell who will by my favorite this season, but no one will ever compare to my favorite Nick Verreos.
I hope great things have happened for you this week too. Anyone care to share?
Beautiful day to all!

ParisJ,you look stunning in the photo with Finley wearing that green shade. Finley is stunning too,lol!
I've never heard any Billy Harvey music , he must be cool if you like it and he is also very good looking too!
I'm looking forward to Project Runway too.
Thanks for responding to my question about new fragrances for the fall,I too love Ambra del Nepal, my type of amber,so delicious! I haven't tried FM's Outrageous yet,it's on my list.
Have a wonderful birthday party with Finley.

*Greetings Life Junkie AKA The Beagle--
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your kind words. It was a great b-day indeed.
Have a wonderful day.

*Hi Anon-
I know, right? Every now and then my husband is very observant.
Lovely day to you.

*Hello Pia-
Thanks for your sweet comments about dear Finley and me. You are too kind!
Yes, Billy Harvey has great music and he is kinda easy on the eyes--in that gruffy musician artist kind of way.
FM Outrageous is great.
Oh and thank you for your comments on the Dolce Vita post. Where in Italy were you born?

Have a lovely day!

Happy Birthday Finley!!! The pics of your puppy are so adorable - esp. the red braids!

I'm so excited that "Project Runway" is finally back, but I was not impressed with the first winning design. What's so impressive about a grey toga with a Carrie Bradshaw-esque flower on one shoulder. Ho hum. Elisa (sp?) looks like this season's version of Angela Kesslar, except she does grasstains instead of "granny circles"!

Happy Birthday to Finley!
So cuet Jen. So so cute. I love him. Tilapia and Oliver Peoples ha ha.

Never heard of Billy Harvey his website makes no sense at all.

YES! Project Runway. So good and Tim Gunn is not acting like a fool like he does on his own show. That show is terrible. His show, not PR. Kevin does look like Santino and Joey Fatone, but he also looks like you beloved Nick, at least to me.
I bet he is Greek.

Kiss to Finley.

*Hi Pat-
Thanks for the kind words re: little Fin. The braids are part of his milk maid meets Raggedy Ann meets Heidi Klum ensmeble.
I humbly agree with you about the first winning design--I mean he knows what he is doing and it did have nice draping but the color was blah. He is already established as a designer with a store--I like it when all the designers are hungry for it. I don't know--it will be interesting to see how it plays out. Grass stain girl should make it interesting!

*Hello ShopAround-
Thanks for the nice comments about Fin. He is a charmer.

I agree that Billy's website makes no sense. It is strange but he is strange--kinda genius with his songs, but strange on a website! HA

Other people agree with you about Tim Gunn. I love him and he is so nice, BUT yes he sometimes comes across as a Macy's Puppet. Not sure of Kevin's heritage. I will have to find out. Nick is gorgeous!
Lovely day to you!

*Hello Lovely Fabulista-
Thanks for the Birthday wishes to dear Fin. My weekend has been good so far. Hope you are great......oh and I heard there is only one more episode of The Office due to writers strike. Let's write up a mock up episode adn send it to Steve Carrel. I know someone who is his neighbor. Let's do it! HA
Have a good day!

*Hi Ostentacious Style-

Thanks so much for visiting all the way from Greece! Finley says "efharisto". Love your blog!!

Beautiful day to all!

Finley is so cute, he ALMOST makes me want to go out and buy a Maltese. Have you ever heard of the comic strip Tintin? Finley looks a lot like Milou, Tintin's dog.

Happy Birthday dear Finley! Give your momma some sugar kisses! I love the Oliver Peoples sunglasses, do you mind if I get a pair for Day-Z? I don't want to steal the look without asking of course.

Happy belated birthday to the beloved Finley. He looks adorable in those pictures, and so do you.

Argon turned one on October 30th., and I posted a picture of him too on my blog.

Methinks you are enjoying the surf, sand and scuba of the Mexican Riveria at this very moment. I hope that you are having a wonderful time. I want to see all your photos.
Yes--you Fin does look Milou. You sent me a pic of Tin Tin and Milou one time.
Thanks for saying his is cute. He is a sweet boy.

*Hello Dear R-
Finley says he will do his best to take care of me as long as I stick to the script....the script being that I spoil him rotten and he may decide to be good to me....depending on his mood. Gosh --what a little prince HA!

*Hello FM Mary-
Thanks so much --oh and OF COURSE you can get Day-Z some Oliver Peoples sunglasses. I am sure she would be gorgeous!
I hope your Thanksgiving was great!

*Hello Dearest Barb-
Thanks for your kind words and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DEAR ARGON! I will check him out!
Much love!

Lovely day to all!
