Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

Hello my loves!

I'm back from my relaxing weekend get-away. While the weather was a bit chilly the house was AMAZING, the views spectacular and my companions made it all worth while.

The center of attention in the beginning of our adventure was not the birthday girl, but the house. It has just recently been finished and while all of the finishing touches are not done it wasn't too shabby.

So here is a tour of the little old place I stayed at this weekend.

Front of the house:
(House was so big that I couldn't get it all in one shot.)

As you enter the main doors you are meet with Living Room number 1 (yea that's right there is another one)

From there we went up the stairs, but also had the option of using the elevator!

Here is one of the dining rooms. How in love are you with the lighting? I die!

To the left of the dining room is the kitchen. So beautiful full of white cabinetry and marble countertops and backsplash. It has two huge farmsinks, and 2 dishwashers of course along with a cooling cabinet to keep our drinks nice and chill along with a warming cabinet.

To the left of the kitchen we are met with dining room number 2! This one is for more formal dining and it comes with a fireplace.

To the left of that room there is another room that has yet to be completed, but will be home to a gym.

Now from dining room 1 if we go to the right we are met with living room number 2.

If you continue going to the right there is the master suite complete with an office that then leads to two closets that then leads to the master bedroom that then leads to the master bath. Since these rooms were pretty much still works in progress I have no pictures.

The home sleeps 17 and has 9 bathrooms. All of the rooms again are still pretty much blank slates, but they are still gorgeous and we were lucky enough to spend this weekend in this lovely room.

I made sure we got the room with the best shower. I was in heaven with two jets hitting me and filled with seafoam tiles in a variety of sizes.

Here is a look at the hallway right outside our bedroom. The walls are filled with some beautiful family shots of all 4 girls in the family along with more must have lighting that follows the long hallway every couple of feet.

The backyard has an ocean view and will soon have a pool added to it. We had to climb up some sand dunes to get a shot of the back of the house.

In order to get down to the water we decided it best just to slide on down.

Group shot of most of the ladies that attended with the ocean background.

Not too shabby view of their backyard:

It was quite an unbelievable home. I felt like I sneaked into a home from MTV cribs. So many of the rooms were blank slates and the designer in me had ideas already running through my head for what I would. I can't wait to see the home again when everything is complete.

Even though we didn't really want to venture out we did make some time to check out the local scene and hit some neighborhood bars and restaurants and it was quite a sight. The town is mostly filled with locals now since it is the off season so a group of 10 stunning women was a thrill for everyone around. We felt like a group of celebrities, which also added a bit of fun to the weekend.

I have always played the mom role with my two younger sisters and normally feel like such an old lady so it was nice to let my hair down and feel like I was in my early 20s again and connect with my sisters in a different way. It was just what the doctor ordered.

I hope you all enjoyed a sneak peak into my little weekend getaway. I really enjoyed my girls weekend out, but was also super excited to head home and get back to my hubby and 2 pups.

Hopefully we'll get invited again during the warmer weather season and perhaps even rub some shoulders with some real celebrities.

Wow, what a beautiful home! LOVE the chandeliers in the dining area by the kitchen! They've been on my WANT list since I saw them in HB. I also like the tiles in the bathroom, the kitchen and most of the rooms! :)

AMAZING, That house is beautiful!! What a fun time you had!! I would have never been able to leave, it is just so pretty. You must make a trip back when the house is finished so we can see some more fab pics. Do you know who the decorator is for the house?

Such a beautiful house! I love those girlie weekends. We did a weekend like that in the Hamptons for my bachelorette party - though the house wasn't nearly as beautiful!

lucky you! gorgeous home and girlfriends. By chance, you didn't lift up the blue runner with white design by living room #1 to find out who makes it, did you?! That would be SO perfect for a rug I'm trying to find for my library.

One only needs to be equipped with the tools needed to succeed in a business such as this, and he is bound to get what his heart ultimately desires.
Just what are the things needed to be able to succeed in
affiliate marketing? What must one have within himself to be able to do well in this industry? There is a lot of competition involved in affiliate marketing, and to be able to rise above the norm, one must be equipped with just the right stuff necessary to propel him forward.

If the exchange rate between the U.S. & Australia wasn't so terrible I'd be on the next flight over! What a positively fabulous home, & it sounds like an awesome weekend was had by all.
