Cupcakes & Hugs For Everyone!

Can we just talk about how much I've been freaking the freak out that I have 23 followers and have been getting so many comments!  
I just want to bake you all cupcakes covered in extra frosting and give you each hugs.
I'm a hugger, if you're not that's cool, you can just have the cupcake.
Here is my creepy happy/excited face just for all you lovelies who checked out my weird little blog and made my day.

Slammin'

I wore this outfit on a date night with the hubs.  
We went to Charlie's and shared a Cobb salad like a couple of 80 year olds.
Then came home to check on our dogs.
Then went to the movies to watch an hour of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter until we couldn't take it anymore and got up and walked out.
Then in bed watching Scrubs by 10:00.
It was a pretty slammin' Friday night.
(Do the kids still say slammin'?)

High Five For Friday


It's finally Friday!  This has been a long and busy week and I cannot wait for it to be the weekend!  Especially since this Sunday marks another class done and I'll only have 2 classes left before I'm done with grad school!  And then you guys never have to hear me complain about it again!  Yay!  Until then, here are my 5 favorite things from this week.






(1) Waking up to a tasty fruit smoothie made by the hubs every morning this week (Ours have strawberries, banana, peach, greek yogurt, protein powder, and orange juice for sweetness.  Delish!)
(2) Getting lavendar in our veggie box and getting use one of our wedding vases to display it.
(3) This hairdo.  It was easy and I got a ton of compliments on it.  Hey, sometimes the best part of my week is shallow, okay?
(4) Tuffy discovering that there is an inside to our coffee table filled with quilts.  Pug heaven.
(5) The dogs taking care of a sick hubs all week.

Crazy For Buttons

I just figured out how to do a button this morning.
It made me late for work.
I wish I was kidding.
BUT regardless.
Check out that link up top called sponsor to do a button swap with yours truly!!

The Accidental Outfit


I didn't purposefully make this outfit the cheapest outfit I've ever posted on here (less then $20 head to toe!).
Or the most patriotic outfit I've ever posted.

And yes, I'm aware that I kind of look like a flight attendant for Go USA Air right now.
I'm okay with it.



I'm thinking I need to have this sucker hemmed...

Bangs Or No Bangs

GUYS!
I'm having an existential crisis.
I miss my bangs.
And I can't decide what to do about it.
(Yes, I'm really this dramatic)
HELP!

Love Fest

I'm having one of those days where I am so incredibly filled with love for the hubs that I feel like I may pop.
First, I woke up this morning and he had made me a super tasy smoothie that was waiting for me in the fridge.
Then, he picked up Subway for lunch (the way to my heart is paved in food).
And then, he surprised me with a battery charger for my iPhone so it won't die while we're camping next week.
Which I had been freaking out about.
I'm on my phone A LOT.
Little gestures like that without being asked just make me want to run at him and squeeze him.
But as MY little gesture to him, I won't.
Because he would hate that.
Love you hubs, I'll be mentally squeezing you all night!



Hey Look, I Learned How To Put Text On Pictures!

I don't have a funny story behind this outfit.
I put my hair up in a pretty (dirty) braid look today and I wanted a pretty dress to go with it.
The colors were inspired by this post from Jessica at What I Wore.


Also, I squirted yogurt on it first thing then when I got to work today.
THAT looked classy.

My Week In Instagrams

This one is a little late.
I've been busy.
BUT, last week, we went wine tasting,  drinking during the day kicked our butts so we laid on couches and watched movies the rest of the day, I drove to our Lake Isabella office again, the view was gorgeous, I packed for Disneyland, got overly excited about Disneyland, and then had an awesome time at Disneyland, we drove home, ate some cheesecake in the car, and laid with our dogs until bed.
















How was your week?














Disneyland!

Did I mention we had a trip planned to go to Disneyland?
Probably not, I wasn't super excited about it.
Anyways, we went. 
It was awesome.
Here are some pictures and stories about a lovely weekend.

First, we drove to Orange County and stopped off at some outlets (we love outlets, we're freaks about them).
First outlet stop, Alcatraz Brewery for some lunch and booze.


Then we shopped 'til we dropped.
And needed more booze.


Mikes takes his beer samplers seriously.

Then we drove to Anaheim (realized our hotel was like 3 minutes from the outlets so it wasn't much of a drive) and met up with my mom and her friend A for some dinner.

What I wore, bought that day at the Banana Republic Outlet (with some Premier jewelry of course)

We went to Catal Restaurant in downtown Disney.
It was DELICIOUS and fancy and amazing service and a great view and just UGH, perfect.

This is what I ate:  suckling pig confit, corn, zucchini, Fresno chile, salt and vinegar cracklings, corn purée, smoked jus.
I felt weird ordering suckling pig, but it was worth it.
I asked the bartender to pick my wine and he sent me Rodney Strong which made me happy and it was perfect.

This is what Mike (and mom and A) ate:  braised boneless short ribs, roasted piperade, Spanish tortilla, sweet paprika aïoli, jus.
Delish (mine was better).

Dessert (that we ordered two of because when Mike is at dinner with you, you need two desserts...that boy loves dessert):  some kind of huckleberry awesomeness, but I can't remember the weird name right now.

The next day, we were off early to Disneyland!

Us on the shuttle, the only picture I look normal in all day.

Can we talk about how good our luck was all day at the park?
We decided to do Space Mountain first since it's usually a hellish line.
We walk up, and it's closed, so we're bummed, but as we're walking away, an employee yells at us to hold on.
30 seconds later, they open the ride and us and about ten other people got to speed walk through the line and be the first on the ride.
It rocked, high fives abounded.
From then on, we basically didn't stand in a single line.
It actually kind of freaked us out.
Ten minutes was probably the longest line all day.
And THEN we went on Indiana Jones (which is awesome always) and as the ride was ending and our car was pulling up to the end, a couple of cast members walked up and told us that our car hadn't worked and we get to switch cars and go again.
Indiana Jones twice in a row...come on!
Overall, it was an awesomely perfectly lovely day.
Pretty weather, happy Mike, no lines, tasty food, tons of crazy people to talk about on our long walks, and churros.
Here are some more pictures.
Oh Disneyland, we miss you already.

Our view at lunch from the New Orleans Cafe, loved these guys.

This is a completely unstaged picture of hubs.  I caught him watching the dudes play music during lunch and he was this genuinely happy.  He loves Disneyland so much.

Me standing in Frontierland waiting for the hubs to pee for the 80th time.  That dude, I swear.

Mike on Small World

We found the perfect semi-hipster Disneyland shirt for Mike

This picture is not meant to be sexual I just insanely love Disneyland pickles!


The wine tasting in California Adventureland is a RACKET. 
So expensive, so little wine.
Booooo.

Mike outside Small World

Our view from the ferris wheel in CA Adventureland (is that what it's called?  I'm too lazy to look it up).
I found out (after like 5 years together) that Mike doesn't like heights.
Whoops.

My outfit for the day:  mullet dress from a local boutique, cross purse (GODSEND!) from Banana Republic Outlet, shoes from F21, necklace from Premier).

Princess Castle!!  We pushed through a crazy crowd of parade watchers just to walk through the castle before we left the park.
Also, how have neither of us ever gone up to the sleeping beauty part before?!

Fun fact about wearing a cross purse all day with a large necklace and no sunscreen:  sweet sunburn lines.

Happy Sunday everyone!!
