photo a day

for the month of February! 

For my birthday this year, my husband surprised me with a Canon Rebel T3i. You guys, I am in love! I love being able to capture the little moments in each day. However, there is still so much that I need to learn and when I saw this photo challenge I immediately knew I wanted to join in. This will be the perfect excuse to get my camera out, get more comfortable with the settings and take more pictures. Check back at the end of each week for the photos that I have taken!

Want to join in ? Head on over to fatmumslim for more details!

Studio Living

The husband and I only have two more months here in Bama. He will soon be graduating from flight school and we will then be heading back to California!

While it is still just the two of us ((plus our lovely pup)) we are thinking that a studio might be the best option for us.

It is not easy fitting everything into a studio and I love decorating so I have already begun looking at pinterest for inspiration!

**I love this idea for an entry way! 

**perfect options for storage

**love the layout and bright colors

**loving this divider

For more ideas for small spaces head on over to my pinterest.

A Novel

When I am really into a novel, I'm seeing the world differently during that time-not just for the hour or so in the day when I get to read. I'm actually walking around in a bit of a haze, spellbound by the book and looking at everything through a different prism. - Colin Firth

I love this quote and could not agree more. There is something so lovely about getting lost in a good book. In my opinion, the best way to end the day is with a good book and a glass of red wine in my hand! 

I am currently looking for new books to read.. any suggestions?

Be Kind

I am always amazed at how a kind word can change my outlook for the day. Because of this I always try to say kind and thoughtful things whenever they come to my mind. If my husband does something nice for me...I try to thank him. When I am proud of him.. I tell him. Whenever I am thinking I love you.. I try to say it out loud. If I like my friends shirt... I will tell her. If I miss one of my friends from back home.. I will text them and mention that I am thinking of them. 

It really has made quite the difference!

So on this sunday.. Be Kind.. because you can make someones day ;)

Game Night

While staying at the Condo, Cranium was our game of choice. I had never played this before, but now I am a big fan!  The first night we played Boys vs Girls and the second we played as couples. I loved playing as a couple. It was quite entertaining watching my husband have to act things out! I must say.. we made quite the team ((even though we lost!)) We will get them next time sweety ;)

Do you host game nights with friends? If so, what is your game of choice?

Dress: BCBG oulet. Similar here
Fedora: local boutique. Similar here
Sunglasses: Raulph Lauren
Necklace: Noon
Watch: Fossil

I have officially decided that a chilly beach is the best kind of beach!

A Birthday Fiesta

with my favorites. 

A fiesta is not complete unless there are corona's and lime.

Oh and mason jars with mustaches, of course. 

One of my besties had a birthday this month and that called for a celebration. We had so much fun getting together, eating delicious tacos, drinking coronas and margaritas, and hanging out by the bonfire.

In my opinion, every week should include a Fiesta!

Merry Times

As we all get older it seems that each year it becomes a little more difficult to get the whole family together for the holidays. This year I made it my mission to get us all under one roof. After literally a day of phone calls, we figured out a way for us all to spend the night.  Not only for one night..but two! 

On our "Christmas" morning, the family thought it would be funny to have a pair of glasses like mine. This photo ended up being our family Christmas card... magnified glasses and greasy hair.  Aren't we cute. 

The day was spent opening presents, 

enjoying each others company,

drinking wine,


 and bowling,

 I loved every second.

I loved being in Texas for the Holidays. Mainly because this meant I was able to spend time with siblings.  I have missed them greatly. I loved going to dinner with them, reminiscing with them and laughing with them. I am beyond grateful for the times that we are able to spend together.
