Date Night

Last night was date night! We had fun at Paul Martin’s happy hour (where I had a delicious mushroom burger!)

…and a movie. And maybe even some late night shopping at Target 🙂
So we did see the Big Wedding. And honestly, it was entertaining. Though crude and unoriginal. Take Mama Mia, License to Wed and Something’s Gotta Give – then wrap them all together (without the singing, I guess), and that’s what this movie is like. Plus some terrible language and a less than heartwarming ending…so, I give it like a 5.5 out of 10. Maybe. I wouldn’t see it again, but we used some gift cards we had left over, so no harm-no foul.
Sometimes I like to dress up a little for date night 🙂 Here’s how I recreated my outfit on Polyvore!Date Night


Tuesday Afternoon

Spring is here and summer’s coming! I’m seriously thrilled. The Sacramento area really only has two seasons: hot and cold, but there are a few weeks of mild weather thrown in simply to keep us all sane ;). And during those mild weeks, this is what I like to wear:

Tuesday Afternoon

Coral is such a generally flattering color. Ruined denim is making a come back. And those sandal?
Love <3 Yes, Tuesday Afternoon is a random Moody Blues song. So what?

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is coming up! Any plans? I personally love Valentine’s Day. Just romance me and I’ll be the happiest Valentine ever.
I’ve only been asked to be someone’s Valentine once. There was a boy who lived on my street and was a few years younger than me, but he made me the cutest card and everything. I think I was in 5th grade.
Here’s a little number inspired by V-Day:

Just inspiration. I would never spend $915 on a cardigan…even if it is cashmere 🙂

Winter days are getting warmer here in California! I can even leave the windows of the house open in the afternoons. It’s so nice to get some fresh air after the crazy freezing temperatures we’ve had here over the past several weeks! Here’s an idea of what I’ve been wearing ^. I like to keep my outfits colorful and not too casual. And if it’s a little chilly out, I grab a jacket and trade my flats for boots! I love California 🙂

Christmas List

I can’t believe it’s already December. And Christmas is only a few weeks away. The traffic is backing up within 5 miles of the mall, festive music’s on the radio, my office Christmas party has come and gone…and Broadacre Coffee is serving the best peppermint mocha in town. Sounds like it’s time to post a Christmas list!


1. A navy duffel coat – I like the length of duffle coats and the brown details, which make them easy to transition from casual to dressy. This one from Nordstrom’s Juniors’ department (B.P.) is my fav and the fur is detachable.

2. A pair of Big Star jeans – I used to love the Remy’s, but they only come in low rise now…Maybe the Alex mid rise skinnies in Olympia Dark. This company is also eco-friendly and the jeans are manufactured in California. It’s a win-win to me!

3. Troopa boots – During the wet winters in Northern California, I love to wear boots. I hike in them, work in them and wear Uggs around the house. These lace-up Troopa boots from Steve Madden are super cute, and the zipper on the side is really convenient.

4. A brass shower head – OK, this one may surprise you, but…we really need a new shower head. Our full bath’s best feature is a resurfaced claw foot tub with antique brass facet, surround and a white porcelain shower head. I can’t imagine ever replacing the tub, but the shower head dumps water on the showeree. Waste of water and coldness ensue. But, porcelain and/or brass shower heads are not easy to find. Overstock.com is wonderful though and they have a great selection of brass shower heads. I like this one!

5. Bamboo Roman shades – We’ve been wanting to replace the ummm…well-used metal blinds in our dining room for some time, but because we have so many windows, window coverings for our sunny bungalow have always been way out of our price range (21 windows in all)! Enter JC Penny with these affordable and multi-sized (we need a 59″, 47″ and two 35″) Roman shades that would offer a much-needed facelift to a room we have yet to make many changes to.

6. ALÄNG ceiling lamp (One 14in and one 18in) – Our home suffers from the plague of the boob-lights and broken ceiling fans. I kid you not. We’ve gotten rid of one boob light and two of the fans, but there are still several more that need replacing. This new ceiling light from Ikea would be great in our kitchen (where most of the lighting is recessed, but there is one boob light {why?!}) and the larger version would be perfect in the guest room (which is currently home to a broken ceiling fan).

Just a few ideas. Making it super easy for JBoat and my mother this year by posting my list on the world-wide web 😉
