Cat Grass.

Been growing some plants lately.
Or at least trying to. One in particular is not growing very well.
My cat grass....I wonder why.

Photo of the week!

This long weekend has been crazy!
Went out backpacking to Shi Shi beach on the coast. I got back yesterday and I am still so incredibly sore, but it was SO worth it. Hooray!

Anyways here is my photo of the week for last week. Taken in Eastlake.
Its official I need a real big girl camera.

Photo of the week.

Until my life gets more interesting I am going to do a photo of the week so I don't have to bore you with thousands of worthless photos.

This week I have had way too many sweets so what is a better photo of the week than the most delicious sweet that I had this week. 
Oreo milkshake from Luna Park Cafe!
I went there on a girl date with my love Megan from Diary of This Girl.

P.S. At Brave Horse Tavern this week I literally just ordered a beer and a chocolate chip cookie.

False Alarm.

This morning we were startled awake by the buildings fire alarm.
Sweet Nelson and I instantly made eye contact and he was terrified. I yelled at Dan to grab him while I ran and got his cat carrier upstairs. Eventually we made it down and out of the building where we sat for about 15 minutes until it was good to go back in the building. Apparently someone had pulled the fire alarm in the garage. Once we got back in the alarm kept randomly going off for the next two hours. So Nelson ran and hid in my closet and I followed him and sat with him for awhile.
We spent the rest of the afternoon cuddling and enjoying the sounds of silence.
So glad that my first instinct is to rescue this cute guy. Don't know what I would do without him.
Cat love!


I am thrilled beyond belief.
The time has finally come that I will be reunited with my all time favorite sunglasses. The original pair I treated like gold for 2 years until they broke one summer on a roller coaster at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. I've been hoarding $5 amazon gift-cards that I get here and there in hopes I would be able to find something fun.

Then today it happened I was looking for Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume and I saw my sunglasses! They were on sale, and with my gift-cards that I had saved up I only had to spend $15 on them. Hooray!
They are even in the color that I originally had them in.
I can already tell that this summer is going to be fantastic.

I saw a post over at A Beautiful Mess and was instantly inspired, so I decided to dye one of my own "forgotten" dresses.

The dress.
This dress was the dress I wore under my white high school graduation gown in 2006.
It is a free people dress, and it still fits great. The only reason that I don't wear it anymore is some burns from ironing and some stains from food over the years.

The new color.
Purple! I love purple and always have, and I love almost every shade of purple.
I mixed it in my kitchen sink. It worked out really well and didn't stain the sink at all.

The dress turned out beautiful! I can't wait to wear it. What would you wear it with?


I mean seriously TGIF.

This week has been filled with delicious food and dark clothing (still yikes!).
Still wearing my huge infinity scarf too!

If you are local and into yummy food here are the places I have gone this week:

If you are concerned about my sanity because it is spring and I haven't been wearing any color here are two items that I got in the mail from Modcloth yesterday!

 What a crazy week.

One of the best things in life is opening up your mailbox and seeing an unexpected surprise.
Typically my mailbox is filled with coupons and junk mail but not today.

An actual letter from a faraway friend. I couldn't be happier. So much better than a online message. I even received a little tin of goodies along with the letter.
Growing up we use to draw houses just like this as a plan for our future lives. 
I love that she found this card.
I love my goodies and unexpected surprises.
I think I will start sending fun things to all my faraway friends.
Such an fun way to stay connected.

Do you still use snail mail? What is the best unexpected thing that you received in the mail?


I am stuck. Every morning I end up wearing a black top of some sort.
Now that it is spring and the sun is finally coming out I need to add some color into my outfits.
Here is what I wore yesterday:
Black tank, black top, black bag, black scarf, and black headband.
Yikes! Please don't get me wrong I love wearing dark/neutral colors, but when it is spring I feel like some color is needed. 

Do you ever get stuck wearing the same color over and over?
