Lunch Break...

Genae & I had the best lunch break ever today. We stopped by to pick up our Britney CD's then we went to Starbucks :) Nothing like listening to new Brt Brit & sipping my marble mocha :)

Now & Then...

Devon Sawa was one of my very first celebrity crushes. I recently saw a current picture of him (I don't think I'd seen him since Final Destination)... It was crazy - I probably wouldn't have even recognized him... Check out this progression.

Devon Sawa in Now & Then (one of my all time faves!)

Devon circa Final Destination...

... and all grown up!

It's crazy to think your childhood crushes grow up.
He's been is some great movies though!

Let's hope he's staging a come back.

A Few Things...

I am totally feeling the maxi dress trend. It is SO WINDY in the Central Coast, it's the best option for wearing a dress... Oh & you don't have to shave your legs :)

I love this pic of Henry sleeping on my bed in his shirt! He likes to look out the window & huff at people (he's not really a barker, he huffs)...

Fancy braids!

I think I need this ginormous flower! It's so fab & it's hot pink!

First thought - Gross
Second thought - I want to touch them
Third Thought - I'll take one!

Hello Sunshine...

I love these delicate necklaces that somehow manage to be statement pieces as well (both literally & figuratively)!

I think this one is my favorite! It would make me happy just to wear it. (Kate Spade)

Cute initial. I feel like there are so many ugly initial things out there. This manages to be a bit different & subtle.

For when you can't actually be in Paris!

March 20th...

Happy First Day of Spring

I can't decide if this cute or disturbing...
I'm leaning more towards cute.

Old Time Radio...

One of my recent Leisure World finds was a pack of 30 tapes of all sorts of old radio mystery shows. I've been slowly making my way through them & I am loving them so much! I really think we should incorporate radio into our lives more! The first tape was stories from The Black Museum (insert creepy noises here) starring Orson Welles. Amazing. I loved it! It starts out every episode with Orson Welles saying this:
"This is Orson Welles, speaking from London. Here in the grim stone structure on the Thames that houses Scotland Yard is a warehouse full of souvenirs, where everyday objects - a skipping rope, a glass, an iron, a stepladder - are all touched by murder."
Then they go on to introduce whatever the murder weapon is for that weeks story & tell the story after. The stories have been really good so far & I can't wait to listen to the rest of my 30 tapes :)
p.s. My set of tapes was such a bargain! It was a brand new set that sold in store for $59.99... I got them for $1.00! I love you LW!

Miley's Closet...

So I just found out that Miley is auctioning off a bunch of her clothes to benefit charity. How cute are these scarves? I would honestly pick them out even if they weren't hers...

You can visit the auction HERE.
Oh and don't forget my 25th birthday is right around the corner :)

Confession: I don't know that I've ever really been canoeing. I've been a passenger & I've canoed at Disneyland, but neither of those really count in my book. With that said, I still want to try it. Don't the pictures below make it look like the most fun thing ever?

Secrets From A Stylist...

Emily was my absolute favorite contestant on the Next Design Star, so I was delighted to see that her new show is everything I hoped it would be! Her new show takes different peoples personal styles (she comes up with the cutest names for each persons styles! I would love to know how she would peg me), and layers them over each other to achieve the perfect, well balanced room! It's absolutely fascinating! I think she has impeccable taste, but she also is a bit quirky... That's the best combo! Did I mention she wears really cute clothes???

Above is a picture of one of the "layers" she created for a couple. This was just the first layer, it was geared to please one person. She then will add other layers to satisfy the whole couple. I personally favored this first layer though! I think it's perfection!
Also, she has a really fun blog (I just found this out!)...

Happy Happy Birthday...

Today is one of my faves 26th birthday!
Happy Birthday Shell!
So sad I can't make it to your party, but I will be wearing an outrageous hair accessory just for you!
Can't wait to adventure with you for your bday!
Love you so much!

I am absolutely in love with these sunglasses! These are Nicole Richie's design. How smart to make sunglasses & earrings in one!

Birthday Celebration...

Last week I was lucky enough to celebrate my dear friend, Kenz's, 25th birthday! As is tradition, Kenz, Shelly, & I celebrated together. For this years adventure, Kenz decided we should trek out to Pasadena to go to the Norton Simon Museum.

Before we headed out, we tried our best to embarrass Kenz. It's become a tradition to wear something dumb for her bday. She's used to us by now though & doesn't embarrass easily :) I actually think her headband looks a bit like a crown - which is very fitting for the bday girl to wear!

We had a great time looking around the museum. I have to say some of the people were as interesting as the art... We had the seriously scary museum worker who was pacing & talking to himself & the art snob that judged Shelly & I the entire time. Let me explain, I told Shelly a very dumb joke about Degas, Shelly thought it was funny - but art snob DID NOT! To make matter worse, he overheard Shelly saying something in the gift store & gave us judging looks again! He was my favorite.

Shelly was piffed (ha) that this was considered art...

Love this pic!

Kenz picked out a SUPER FUN restaurant for dinner. It was so good! The best part of the whole dinner was being serenaded by the mariachi band! They were seriously awesome. Perhaps my favorite part of the amazing evening!

I caught the FEVER...

"It's spring fever.... You don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
~Mark Twain


You're the Lo to my Lauren.

Can't Wait...

I feel like there are a lot of upcoming things to be excited about in the world of media... Here are few things that I am greatly anticipating...

Movie with James Franco & Natalie Portman??? Yes Please. I have not yet seen a trailer, but just look at that poster... How could you miss it?

I am a huge fan of the first Scream (I still won't answer the phone when I'm home alone after watching the opening scene!). The 2nd & 3rd are questionable, but I am still very excited about the 4th! Apparently that's what Adam Brody has been up to.

I LOVE both of Britney's new singles...
Cannot wait for the WHOLE CD to come out.

Engagement Party...

Saturday, I traveled down south to celebrate Kristal's engagement! She & Javier had an amazing engagement party!

I have to say the best part of the whole thing was getting to see some of my absolute favorite people in the whole world! I love these girls SO MUCH! We have been through so much together & just have so much love for each other!

We hung out, ate, visited, & toasted the upcoming marriage!
(bonus: the bridal party got the cutest pins to wear! You can kinda see mine in this pic - it's pink!)

Kristal, I love you so much & am so happy to be a part of your day! You looked absolutely fabulous in your Betsey :)
p.s. Some of you may be wondering what's in my gift bag... Kristal gave us DARLING Betsey Johnson (her fave!) coin purses & framed the absolute sweetest letter I've ever received! Such a thoughtful & special gift!

VW Dreams...

I'm pretty sure this is what the back of my VW Bus will look like one day...
