Oh, holiday weekend. You were such a treat, I think you should stay awhile. Alas, it's back to work! Wish my desk looked like this! A girl can dream, hope, wish and try! 

Here's to the last few weeks of the year! 2013, where did you go?

Today is National Cat Day! I just love our little kitties and am constantly amazed that such small things can take up so much space in my heart. I'm convinced our lives wouldn't be the same without these fluffy little beings and their antics. This morning, our kitties reminded me of their 10 Commandments. And also demanded a parade. They might just get it.

A Birthday

Warm Welcome

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

October, you've finally arrived! Growing up, I always had a super soft spot for the glorious tenth month. Even after all these years, I still do. And while this birthday girl might be a little biased, glowing harvest moons, football, costume parties, treats, and exceptional weather can't be beat! Wishing you a radiant October!

It all started ten years ago. Best decision ever. We're officially in the double-digit territory! And, I'm mush. With this sentimental heart. Whether it's our yesterdays, todays, or tomorrows, it has always been you.

Birthday Boy & A Long Weekend

Thursday, August 29, 2013

After eleven days on a surf trip in Costa Rica, my favorite guy is back! And it couldn't be better timing -- he's a birthday boy! Wishing you a long and happy holiday weekend! Celebrations are in order!

Dog Days

Monday, August 19, 2013

The dog days are nearly over. During my early teens, I had a favorite summer routine: lazy summer days spent reading, dreaming, and sunning in my rectangular backyard, playing Counting Crows' "August and Everything After" on repeat for hours while painting my nails and toes my then-preferred shade of frosted pearl white (eep!), and dog-earing the latest Delia's catalog. I thought I'd wear that nail color forever and dream of a day that those clothes would be within reach.
While days, months, and years have subsequently passed, and I have changed with the seasons, a few things remain the same. My love for lazy summer days -- spent reading, dreaming, and sunning. I still have an embarrassing soft spot for Counting Crows and am instantly transported to my terrible teens on the rare occasions they grace the airwaves. I still believe that painting nails and magazines are the perfect match. In some ways, I feel that I've changed and that girl, those days, are just a distant memory. In others, I feel as though I have changed but am still the same. That I still am who I have always been. Just without the frosted nail polish.

Not Just Another Pretty Face

Wednesday, August 7, 2013


For years, I have liked Katy Perry. She is the queen of summer anthems, after all. But at times, I felt a bit fickle; hot and cold. This past weekend, I finally got around to watching Katy Perry: Part of Me. And I liked it. I liked it so much, I may have cried for most of the last thirty minutes. People are people, no matter who they are. Famous or otherwise, we all have feelings. And hearts. And the desire to connect with others. Clearly, her fan base reaches far and wide. Because of Katy, an astounding number of individuals have found a safe, creative, and often, colorful place to be their fabulous selves. She is a voice that has helped others find theirs. It's safe to say, I'm officially in her camp. And really want her glittery kitty mask.

Can't wait for her new album, Prism! It seems she's leaving her confection days in the dear, old dust.

And That's an Order

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

Dear August,

I don't know how you got here, but I won't argue. Please be nice. And keep that sun shining. Especially on the weekends.

Royal Baby

Monday, July 22, 2013

Baby name betting

After all these months of waiting and guessing, the long-awaited royal baby is here! I've never really been into the royals and all that, but I do have a secret soft spot for Kate Middleton and her William. It's just a little nuts over there -- I hope they find a piece of peace and quiet as a new family despite the media mayhem.

I was convinced it was going to be a girl -- Alexandra. But I had an embarrassingly random dream last night that she had a boy named Arthur, and I didn't approve for obvious reasons -- King Arthur. Anything can happen, but I have a feeling that Spencer will find a place somewhere in the mile-long mix. Yay, baby.

Case of the T's

Tuesday, July 16, 2013


Monday, July 15, 2013

It's nearly August, so I better get our Fourth of July adventures up! The procrastinator in me is showing. I don't know about you, but that holiday weekend was all that we needed and more.  Our low-key celebration included the sand, sea, friends and a baby, a picnic, and my favorite glow bracelets! I still don't know if I could be more excited about those things. We took a serious detour from the traditional holiday food fanfare -- we wanted Thai! It was such a hit that I think this new-found tradition just might stick around.

But the fun didn't stop there! The extended weekend also included a sunny park hike, a beach swim, watermelon, coconut ice cream, farmer's market, date night, adventures in the kitchen, and finally departing with my sentimental, but annoying, magazine collection that I've been hanging on to for far too long. It's hard to let those glossy things go. Also, Game of Thrones and a smidgen of New Girl. As shared here, I loved New Girl's auto-tune snippet, but never thought I'd cave. Of course, I blame Netflix's instant viewing for making it hard to say no. Verdict? It's a little syrupy, but when it's good, it's good. And, that Schmidt is just too much. But too much in a likeable way -- if that's possible.

Let's do this!

Salt and Sage

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

While I admit that fall is my favorite season, summer always has a special magic and runs a close second. We were lucky to spend the Summer Solstice on our favorite secluded beach. Sand, sun, salt, and sea always make for a perfect day. Always. After reading, napping, and a bit of basking, a sunset picnic on J's trusty tailgate was in serious order. Just when it couldn't get any better, it did. A moon-lit drive! That Strawberry Moon sure meant business! Our favorite winding road didn't disappoint -- the summer scents came alive! Alfalfa, sage, and jasmine! It's been a little rough in recent weeks, but our recent adventure was a pretty perfect start to the summer season. I hope it's going to be a fun one -- I have high hopes!

Hope you've had a nice start to summer!

The body is an amazing thing. After my rough and tumble last week, I've been on the serious mend. And mend it has. I'm not perfect or completely 100%, but I'm getting better everyday. And coming to terms that I just might have a small, super sexy scar within my right eyebrow. I've been told countless times throughout this past week how lucky I am. And that it could've been much worse. So I'll take it.

Last week, I thought about a lot of things. Some things were important; others were not. But that husband of mine. Oh, man. As if I couldn't like him or love him any more than I already do. Well, I do. It is possible. Also, I'm grateful for this beautiful thing called sleep. When you haven't been having it, having it is just yummy. I eased back into the work scene on Monday. Eyebrow and all. Thursday, we can do this.

All Stitched Up

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

So. The great week I originally had in mind is kind of getting off to a rough start. Long story very short, I'm absolutely okay and completely healthy, but now have a super sexy set of stitches on my right eyebrow. That's what a fun day in the ER will get you. I'm on strict orders to rest, rest, and rest, (the husband and kitties are quite bossy!), so my goal this week is to, well, rest. And to eke out a few work days later this week if possible. Life has such a way of letting you know who's boss. Clearly, I'm not. While I'm not totally stoked on my new accessories, I know it could've been worse and am hoping the speedy skin gods get to it so I can get these bad boys out on Saturday. 

Here's to hoping for a better rest of the week. I won't tempt fate and ask what else could possibly go wrong. Because I don't want to know.

It's Here Again

Monday, June 3, 2013

I don't know how it happened, but June is here. And so is June Gloom. That guy is really punctual. We had a cozy weekend and my gem-hunting dreams came gloriously true. I'm happy to say that we spent a good portion of Saturday rifling through rocks, minerals, and gems. Gushing was involved. After many months of dreaming and serious online perusing, I'm finally able to call a super special crystal my very own. Good things do come to those who wait.

It's Monday. We can do it! All the best for a happy week ahead! I think it's going to be a good one.

Link Love

Friday, May 31, 2013

So, it's been kind of busy. These last few weeks (okay, months!) have been full of deadlines, stress, and perhaps even a few tears. As always, yoga, sleep, and coconut ice cream has helped. The super sexy sunshine has too. And with the weekend in sight, I'm gold. Home stretch! I'm hoping for a bit of beach-going, gem-hunting, and dessert-making. Here are a few things making me happy lately.

+ I love succulents. But they don't always love me. Despite my repeat attempts and numerous victims, I haven't learned how to keep them alive for more than a few months. It's a little sad. Luckily, I recently discovered A Pair & A Spare's how-to for succulent care. Life saver. I think I'm ready to try again...and let a new succulent into my heart and home.

+  It's official. I'm smitten with this DIY Huntington Key Ring. Such an easy tutorial. I think it's in my future. The very near.

+  I love all animals. Especially goats. And I just can't get enough of this little guy and his sweet face.

+  I'm convinced I need this cozy space in my life. Anytime would be great, thanks.

+  Sometimes, I feel like I'm the only girl not watching New Girl these days. The phrase "adorkable" might have something to do with my aversion. But, their recent auto-tune gem has found a secret soft spot in my heart. I think we can agree on its greatness. #letsdothis

What are you loving lately? Happy weekend. We deserve it!

Happy Weekend

Friday, May 24, 2013

Growing up, Memorial Day Weekend meant one thing. Summer! After all these years, I feel the same. I've been such a busy bee at work lately, I feel all buzzed out! Luckily, I have big plans to recharge with a four-day weekend. Four! Those pesky furlough days had to have an upside! At this exact moment, I'm kind of grateful for them. 

Hope you have a lovely one! I have dreams of sun, sand, and sea!

Striped Summer Sweets

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for summer. And need these fruity summer striped ice cubes in my life. Stat. I think a little project might be underway in my kitchen shortly. Yes, let's!

How are you getting ready for the summer season? Hopefully with these fruity beauties! I see you, Wednesday.

Go Easy On Me

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

You guys. I don't know about you, but these past few weeks(okay, months!) have left me simply fried. I'm exhausted in every capacity and convinced that sweet sleep and the warm, bright sun are my only hopes for a much-needed recharge. I know what my weekend will entail!

It's interesting, and sometimes frustrating, how things come and go in waves. Well, I'm ready for this big, bad wave to stop. And let me catch my breath. To maybe catch the wave instead of being pounded by them. To be relieved from treading water for what feels like eternity. I just want to have some fun, you guys. Is that too much to ask? Sometimes, life with its layers, happenings, people, feelings, and emotional quicksand, is just plain too much. And I'm calling for a serious timeout. I refuse to have yet another sandy, sunny, summer season overwhelmed by others' stress and uncertainty. So we're taking it back. This is for me, for he, for us. And our kitties, too. It's only Tuesday, but I think Saturday should've arrived yesterday. Who's with me?

Ready, Set, Gatsby!

Friday, May 10, 2013

Dreams really do come true. To say I am eagerly anticipating "The Great Gatsby" would be an understatement. Husband and kitties can attest. My excitement nearly boiled over earlier this week after seeing this short teaser clip -- my favorite of them all. It's so condensed and powerful that I was immediately smitten and in love with Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful." I may or may not have listened to her song on repeat (and maybe cried a little) for a slightly embarrassing period of time, while knee-deep re-reading the novel. I confess I have high, high hopes and want the film to deliver! Happy weekend!

The Boths and Neithers

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

These words are everything. A big, fat, unwanted curveball was thrown my way this week. And I'm seriously hitting that cumbersome thing out of the park and my life, stat. As previously confessed, I'm painfully aware that I'm continually learning, and sometimes failing, with the process of letting go. That heart sure remembers lots of things. Unfortunately, this process is just that -- a process that cannot be hurried, rushed, forced, or faked. It will find us out eventually. But we can only keep trying, keep going, upward, onward, and over. E.E. is really good with this stuff and I love every bit. "The truthful liars, the false fair friends, the boths and neithers, the tall bigger really." That is some big stuff, the true stuff, the hard stuff. And that, is precisely why we need to them go. Boom.

Grumpy Cat

Friday, May 3, 2013

I think we could all use a little Grumpy Cat in our lives. I'm especially loving this Van Gogh inspired print. Just brilliant! I think it really brings out his eyes. And might make our kitties a little jealous if it was hanging on our walls. Of course, they think they are the fairest of them all. Happy weekend!

The Trouble With My Mouth

Thursday, May 2, 2013


There is trouble with my mouth. I sometimes have a special knack for saying the worst thing at the worst time. Or saying things I don't mean. Or saying things I felt only during a particularly heated or stressed moment. So convenient. Sadly, I think it's my specialty. My husband gently tries to tell me that sometimes, I can escalate situations. What? Never! And turn them from bad to worse to the worst in seconds flat. Oops. It's a terrible talent and I'm really trying to keep it hidden -- within the deepest, deepest dark of my sub, sub, subconscious to never arise again. Here's to hoping and doing.

The problem is, while feelings may be fleeting, words stick. They stay. No matter how we wish them away or play "let's start over," they still hang in the air. Mothers and grandmothers have been telling us for years to keep our mouths s-h-u-t if we have nothing nice to say. But they also say to speak the truth, and what to do if the truth isn't nice? I guess the "be still and silent" rule applies here. Well, I failed miserably, you guys. And it seems that I sometimes let my little self get in the way of some things. If there is a foot to insert into a mouth, I will find it. And yell not-so-nice things to a certain snotty someone in a parking lot. In front of people I admire and love. Maybe or maybe not. Oof.

It's Friday. It's been a rough week for our nation and international world. I'm convinced it comes in waves. I hope we can learn to take comfort in the love and goodness that surrounds us even if we don't always see it. Here's to being thankful for the haves and letting go of the have-nots. For appreciating ourselves and lives despite seeming imperfections. We are enough and should let others know they are too. 

Wishing you a happy and safe weekend. Our plans are to have no plans, which sometimes is the best plan of all. No matter what, we will be having a serious timeout to celebrate the Earth and all its wise, beautiful ways. Be well!

Monday, April 8, 2013

Hope you had a lovely and relaxing weekend! As previously mentioned, I found myself with a few free days last week. They were absolutely glorious and completely grounding -- I had a new adventure each day, each one leading me farther and farther away from my day-to-day grind. Amazingly, it feels as though my cozy, cream, open-design cubicle never even existed. And yet, it does. As I will rediscover this morning, along with an angry inbox. Yay.

Despite my return to the "real world," this much-needed break from the hamster wheel has allowed me to actually rest and relax with my husband, kitties, family, and friends. For me, that's quite the accomplishment, as I find myself having an eternal dialogue about needing time to relax, but when I actually have it, I sometimes stress about relaxing. Again, the challenge of saying versus doing. But, I'm learning. Learning about learning. Learning about doing and not doing. About letting go. And while balance is desired, we cannot have it all. And that's okay.

Hope your week is kind and you find time for yourself. Even if just a moment to relax, breathe, and/or stretch, I hope you'll take it. We all need it -- even if we try to convince ourselves otherwise. Be well!

Constant Conversations

Sunday, April 7, 2013

Do you ever find yourself sharing the same ideas, goals, and conversations over and over? And, over? My husband, the ever-constant listener and professional feedback-giver, has listened to my rants, rambles, and thoughts for years on end. Likewise, I have also been his sounding board and cheerleader. Finally tiring of our own talk, we declared that this would be THE YEAR in which we implement some of our long-standing hopes and dreams -- whether big, small, personally, professionally, or otherwise. Simply, to turn thought into action. To just do it. By nature, I am completely risk-averse, but I'm ready to leave my comfort zone in the dust and press on. It has to be done.

Do you find yourself in a similar situation? Instead of just talking about wanting certain things to be different, we actually want to make it happen. That saying stuff is easier than the doing, but we're game! What goals do you have for 2013? It's already April, so let's get going and be brave together!

Battle Scars

Friday, March 29, 2013

On Wednesday, my small family was given a little shock. Let's just say that there are many dangerous hobbies in this world -- surfing(hello, husband!), motorcycling, flame throwing, etc. Suffice to say, being a motorcyclist can be a very risky thing and my long-lost brother just had his wrist reconstructed with plates and pins. All things considered, he's okay and not okay all at once. Whatever he is, he's certainly very, very lucky. Here's to wishing him a healthy and speedy recovery. 

Accidents and life's trials have a way of putting things into perspective and often strike at the most inopportune times. Life is both long and short, and it's easy to take things for granted. Things like being known and being loved. Things like minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years on end of knowing and not knowing. Of saying and not saying. Of loving and hurting. And learning. I am learning about the learning. Right now, learning to let hurts go. Learning to really leave the past behind when you say you want to leave the past behind. And not drudging it up when it suits you. Saying and doing are two very different things. Just when you think you've left your hurts and wounds in the dear old dust, they somehow find their way back into the teensiest, hardest part of your heart. Those hurts somehow convince you that they'll protect you from everyone and everything. But they don't. These hurts do in fact hurt, but they end up hurting ourselves most of all. It's okay to care and let others know it. I don't want hurt in my heart anymore. And I don't want it to come back. So, I'm giving it the final heave-ho.

Here's to learning, loving, saying, doing, sowing seeds of love, surfing safely, and always wearing helmets. They truly save lives, as my big brother can attest. Have the safest weekend with those that you love.

The Main Thing

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

It's Wednesday. I thought we could all use this reminder. I sure do. Right now, my main thing is making it to Thursday at exactly 4:00pm. And then to sign up for a super dreamy class. While the main thing is the main thing, it's also the small things too. Someone may or may not have a few days off next week. I think a parade is in order. Or at least a dance-off. Whatever, I'm down.

Friday, March 22, 2013

Hello. Hi. Hey. Hope you've had a great week. Mine has been busy, busy, and full of deadlines (and, if I'm honest, a bit of coconut ice cream!), but the weekend is in sight and I couldn't be a happier lady. I'm ready for date night, reading in bed, exploring, sea glass-hunting, and perhaps even farm-going. Here a few things making me happy lately. I'm convinced it's the little things. And, it seems, mostly Etsy things.

+  As a gem, mineral, and rock lover. I'm pretty much game for anything and everything. I think jewelry is in my blood. I've currently set my sights on this ethereal selenite crystal from JohnyRocks on Etsy. Not only beautiful and serene, but it apparently also helps one to discover their "inner truth." See, I need this. A game-changer.

+  I have always loved signs. Seriously, an embarrassing number of my photos include typography of some sort. It speaks to me. And so does this vintage, rustic metal sign. Right turn only. Got it.

+  I love kitties. Even when they're naughty. But this guy seems to gotten into some real bad stuff.

+  My love for mason jars know no bounds. And now, this: mason jar wrapping paper. Of course from Etsy. I'm doomed.

Greg Laswell's "Comes & Goes (In Waves)." I just can't get enough. And, he's married to my forever favorite, Ingrid Michaelson. What a pair. If they have kids, they will be bananas.

What are you loving lately? Happy weekend.

P.S. I've decided that this Spring Break business should be a mandatory holiday for everyone. Those school people are sure exclusive. Share the wealth, man!

The 2:00AM Hangout

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Ever since the time change last weekend, one of our little kitties, Taylor, has decided we should hangout at 2:00AM. Every. Morning. Seeing her sweet, shining face is my favorite, but at 2:00AM and just inches from my face -- sweetie, it will have to wait. Aren't kitties just the best and sweetest little things? Well, at least when they let you sleep? Otherwise, they are pretty darn persistent. I hear that about babies too, but I digress.

I love our dearhearts despite their nocturnal ways. But here's to hoping it's just a phase. What animal friends have claimed your heart -- because of or inspite of their little quirks and behaviors?

A Tale of Acai & Farmer's Market

Monday, March 18, 2013

Several weeks ago, a couple friends and I ventured out for a leisurely morning at our local farmer's market. First stop, of course, was breakfast. Acai bowls are our very favorite and so it was only right to start our day off with a delightful stop at Backyard Bowls. If you've never visited, you must! You'll never be the same. Bonding and commiserating over breakfast is a great way to start the day. The only way to go, actually.

Next stop, farmer's market. Since it's held several times throughout the week, and all in different locations, it took us a short bit to navigate our way. Suffice to say, it took three girls and three smartphones to find the way. Yes, for the very first time in our lives, we were that group of girls huddled together, all on our smartphones and completely silent. Based on the snickers from bypassers, we clearly were an amusement. I'm sure they thought we were texting each other. Glad we could provide the comic relief, but we were on a mission! Finally, destination reached and we were in love. The deepest love that one can have for fruits, veggies, etc., without having grown them ourselves. Sometimes, there's nothing better than walking down the street with beets, carrots, kale, chard, cilantro, and much more, sticking out every which way. Happy and content, we made our way back home.

Do you visit your local farmer's market? It's a game changer.

March Madness

Friday, March 15, 2013

This March Madness stuff is real. And it doesn't just apply to basketball. I feel like I've been getting a real butt-kicking lately -- the same old song and dance of too much to do in too little time. Wah wah, I know, but it's true. While I'm loving this Daylight Savings business, my body is still adjusting and is not so happy to see those mean, early mornings. In a few weeks, I'll be completely enamored, but March has its very own kind of magic that still has me craving a cozy hibernation of sorts.

It seems like the only "me" time lately is when I'm cooking dinner. Does that count? Whatever, I'll take it! To make it an all out party, I usually have one of my favorite movies on in the background. I finally watched The Family Stone the other night while laboring over a pistachio pesto, making our little feast. It's one of my favorites and has been waiting ever-so patiently in our DVR queue since December. While it's a holiday movie, I'm convinced that holiday movies are completely appropriate, refreshing, and fun at any time of year. Surely, I can't be the only one who indulges in a bit of White Christmas, bickering but loving families, and winter romances during the off-season months. Suffice to say, it made my night and very well might be the reason I make it to the weekend. That, and our Take-Out Thursday tradition last night. Hope you're hanging in there! We can do it. Boom.

Let's Get Away

Friday, March 1, 2013

This weekend, we're having a mini getaway! Looks like it's shaping up for a bit of relaxation, exploring, sea glass hunting, and cookie baking. Also on the agenda is a fancy charity luncheon/fashion show with my mom and mother-in-law -- my late grandma attended every year and we have since made it our own tradition in tribute to her life, love, and memory. It's a bittersweet event -- more than anything, I just wish my grandma could be by my side and not just in my heart. But I'm so thankful for all the years we shared and will always cherish our memories. Grandmas are so special. 

Any special weekend plans? Hope it's all you dream and more. I don't know how March just decided to show up -- I was still feeling February. It's kind of bossy, that one. With its wind and all. Take time for you. And relax! 

The Best Dress

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Amy Adams 

Oh, Amy Adams. Your dress did me in and claimed my heart. Well done, you. And all your people who helped you look like perfection floating down that infamous, scarlet carpet. This is glamour.

Who do you think was best dressed at the Oscars? You can still have a favorite even if you didn't watch them. Because I didn't -- I was busy doing other things, read through the winner list, and finally hemmed and hawed over the gowns online. Sometimes, that's the way to do it.
