Vintage inspired Fossil

Call me ignorant, but in my mind the Fossil brand has always been limited to watches and wallets. Boy was I wrong. I recently received their early fall catalogue in the mail and I am in love.
Check out the entire catalogue here. You won't regret it.

A celebrity who doesn't make me want to barf

I used to be a big fan of Jewel. In fact, I even bought her poetry book (and no I am not ashamed to admit it). But I must admit that I completely forgot about her over the past couple of years. However, all of that changed last night.
She had an appearance on Chelsea Lately and it was really great. She was super cute, funny, quick-witted and above all - real. Not to mention how her life story really is interesting.
It is so nice to see someone famous who appears well adjusted, kind and basically normal.
I am now a recommitted Jewel fan.
Bonus - how adorable is this photo of her family?

Wonderful Alternative

I have always dreamed of getting married under a gorgeous old tree. However if that does not work out, this would do just fine :)

Yummy Pink Goodness

Saturday night we went to a little dinner party with two other couples. It was a really great night. Honey & I tend to run in different circles, so I am always excited when we find other couples that we both like to hang out with. Fortunately for us, we have had a good run of couple outings lately.

I made these strawberry cupcakes as my contribution to the evening. It was a good feeling when they turned out to be a big hit. In fact, I received more than one request for the recipe. However, those kudos should be passed along to Recipe Girl.com - and this is not the first of her recipes that I have had success with. If you are in need for something to bring to an event, check out her site. You won't regret it.

I am having a hard time at my new job.
Unfortunately, I can not really elaborate. I will say that I am exhausted from working long hours.
Unfortunately, my graduate program starts in less than a month, and I can not realistically expect to find a suitable job alternative before then. My plan is to stick it out and do the best I can. A really good friend of mine tells me to try focusing on her family motto: "Work hard, have a good attitude and say your prayers."
In the interest of staying positive, I have decided to end this post on the upbeat note otherwise known as Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.
I can not wait until this comes out!

I've been super busy lately. I fully intend to post a bunch this weekend. But I am five minutes from running out the door to make it to a loooong over due hair appointment. So, in the meantime, here is a random assortment of some photos taken over the past couple of years. Hope you like them!

Why so blue?

My little sis & her fiancee recently bought a house and are in the process of a major remodel. This is all very exciting. However, she is concerned with the color blue that they chose for the exterior. Her concern? That her house will look like a big blueberry. This is to help her see, blue is beautiful. And her house will be as well.

These too!!

Easy Breezy

Honey and I are not engaged (yet) but I am so thrilled at the prospect of actually taking that step with him. And let me just say, these dresses make me even more eager :)

Avert your eyes

I stumbled upon this little advertisement whilst browsing blogs. It is amazing what gets by good old common sense these days.
