Muffins with My Man

Did you know that one of the best little pleasures in life is eating a muffin? I abosolutely love muffins and will feel like a food is more divine if in the form of a muffin. This weekend I recieved some of the best snail mail in the world-a box from ModCloth, a box from Anthropologie, and a card from my Mom. :) Inside one of those items was my new white ceramic egg crate and white ceramic berry basket!! I took a picture through Instagram if you want to see it. 
Onward to baking my favorite muffins-almond poppyseed...
Thanks to Hannah for the amazing red polk-a-dot muffin decor!
 The house had the best smell ever when these muffins came out of the oven. The perfect way to start my Saturday! Muffins with my Man!
My husband had to make his usual eggs, but since we ran out of the usual bacon we tried some left over pizza ingredients. Putting pepperoni and cheese in eggs actually tasted really good! Out on our lanai, we had pizza styled eggs, almond poppyseed muffins, fresh strawberries and our organic milk! (Did I tell you that organic food is the same price as regular food in Hawaii? So we are going healthy!)


New Job!!

My new job as an interior designer with Cathy Lee Style!
Cathy has such a big name here in Hawaii for design. I'm so humbled to be able to work with her. While we were in a hotel in Waikiki, I went to Hiking Hawaii Cafe every morning and talked with Crystal who happend to be close friends with Cathy and suggested I talk with her about a job. Without her, I would not have a job! Then through a trial period, sharing my passion and background, Cathy hired me as her new designer. We share the self-taught eye for design. These ladies are amazing and feel free to check out everything about them-there's soo much!
I'm so excited about this job but it has already been a whirlwind. Courtney is moving away and I'm coming in at the perfect time to switch. Here are a few photos from only one space we did.
We just finished a project with Y. Hata Foodservice Distribution for a 12 room refesh and Cenntenial Gala.
 Me, Julie (personal assistant & project manager), Cathy (owner/designer), & Courtney (design assistant who is moving home to Rhode Island).
Y. Hata leadership team and design team!

 This is the before of "The Lounge" which was 2 metal containers put together to become the new employee breakroom, or Lounge.
 Some items from West Elm, CS Wo, and others from my favorite store...starts with a TJ...
This white bubble is a white board and the dart board is on a chalkboard paint wall. Both of which the employees can have fun writing on. This area also will be great for charging phones at the reclaimed basketball floor long table we had custom made.
