I’m still here!

15 Jun

Wow sorry for the major lag in posting!

It had been a whirlwind of a week leading up to the Bridal Shower and I’m happy to report, it was a huge success!

Our lovely and talented friend Cooper took pictures of the evening so I hope to have them up soon for you all to enjoy and to see how amazing the decor turned out! Like seriously so much gorgeousness going on.

Here are a couple of snap shots my bestie Candice took of the day.

The beautiful Bride.

Jess and I, love this girl.

Pin the kisses on the groom!

My beautiful sister, look at that pregnancy glow.

These yummy cocktails were definitely flowing!

Operation Bridal Shower

18 May

So here’s the deal, my bestie is getting married in July and I’m hosting her bridal shower at our house on June 11th.

Here comes the to do list, honey!!

Ok so I’m semi freaking out about this. There is a lot that we need to get done to get our house in shape.

Some of which is…

* Finish the pergola posts

* Finish painting the pergola

* Remove all weeds

* Install irrigation and sod

* Repair planter boxes

* Paint planter boxes

* Plant flowers in pots and planters

* Power wash front and back patios

* Paint front door threshold

* Touch up back of house where needed

* Tan bark for side yard to pretty it up

* Repair back fence.

* Hang market lights on pergola

* Fix guest bathroom toilet

* Pretty up guest bathroom as much as possible

And if that weren’t enough, I have some bonus items I’m hoping to get to also.


* Install backsplash in kitchen

* Paint back door

* Install new front door hardware

* Install retractable screen door

Hmmm can you see why I’m freaking out?

Anyway, I know I’ve been a little MIA lately but don’t worry more posts will come soon as I tackle this massive to do list!


13 May

Tomorrow is my birthday and I’m the big 2-8!

I normally don’t think much about my age, but 28 seems pretty scary. There is still so much I want to do while still in my twenties! Plus once you turn 28, 29 seems to creep up fast and soon you know it you’re 30! Why does that scare me so much? Did anyone else get scared turning 30?

I think it really just has to do with the unknowns like wrinkles, hair, weight, babies, career etc. etc.

I thought by now I would be pregnant, but it seems like I’m always putting it off for something. I guess I have time, right? (say no)

Woah! Time flies when you’re havin’ fun!

Anyway, I’m super excited for tonight! We are taking a party bus up to San Francisco to bar hop! I’ve never been on a party bus so I have mixed feelings, a little bit of anxiety, mixed with pure excitement!

I hope you all enjoy your weekend as much as I will!

Bad Dog

21 Apr

So here’s a little back story, we got Sarge (the pug) when he was a puppy after about a month of living in our new place. He was my birthday present from my honey. I love him to death! We didn’t really think about not letting him up on the furniture or on our bed to sleep. He was part of the family as far as I was concerned.

Well after many months of sleepness nights about 2 years ago we decided to move him out of the bed and into the living room at nights. I envy people who can sleep with all their doggies. They must not snore, obsessively lick,  pant heavily, or go in out of the covers 50 million times!!

So long story short, Sarge moved his sleeping area to our sofa, we always had piece of crap sofas so I didn’t really think about it much. Until we got Mr. Whitey (our new sofa) and now he is basically forbidden. I feel bad, but it’s honestly for the best. I mean who wants to go over to someones house and sit on a furry stinky dog sofa. Eww.

Unfortunatley its very hard to train a dog when you’re SLEEPING! What do I do!? Ugh, well for starters I’ve been training him not to get on the sofa at all while I’m around. When I leave or go to sleep I’ve resorted to putting a blanket over the whole sofa, just in case the stinker gets up there.

And this is what I wake up to every morning

Well at least he lays on the blanket!

How can you yell at this cute face?

I do have to mention that Bronx was always trained to be off furniture. He is such a good boy and always sleeps in his bed. Sometimes he does get jealous of his brother and tries to crawl up. Stinker!

If anyone has any good ides for training a dog not to sleep on the couch, I’m ALL EARS!

Ya, that’s what he says, right? I don’t know, I don’t follow Charlie Sheen much. I think that’s a good thing.

Anyway.. I’m bidding on this area rug on eBay and I’m going NUTS! It doesn’t end for another 3 days and I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself! I must win this rug! I must. I’ve been having dreams about and also some nightmares, nightsmares of not winning it when it gets down to the SECONDS! I’ve had this happen to me before with eBay so you can understand why I’m freaking out a bit. Basically I’m going to try and be that asshole who out bids everyone at the last second, ya sorry that’s me!

I think I have an addiction to area rugs, I want to buy them all, and then return them all! Ha! I hope I’m not alone with this one.

On another note, I love this living room and I’m slightly jealous of this chick and her style.

Can I have her kitchen chandelier too? Please…pretty please

See her ridiculously amazing blog, Me Oh My

Happy Early Birthday to Me!

14 Apr

Ok ok so my birthday technically isn’t for another month but when this clutch came back in stock I just HAD to spoil myself a little bit early.

EmersonMade. Is the cutest online store ever, with all handmade goodies made by super chic, Emerson!

And here’s what I spoiled myself with…

How cute is this box!

Looks pretty fabulous next to my ring if I don’t say so myself!

I’m normally not an animal print kind of girl, but for some reason this clutch spoke to me. It’s so fun and happy looking!

Best part is that you can remove the flower and add it to a cardigan or top for a little pizazz! Not sure if I’m there yet though.

Anyway…what do you think of my little early b-day present? Are you loving it as much as me!?
