I’m leaving for Europe in two weeks (I realize how ridiculously pretentious that sounds) and so me not blogging on the reg is to prepare you for my absence (even more pretentious I know). But I am so incredibly busy planning my outfits and buying mini shampoo and conditioner that blogging has fallen by the wayside.

Just kidding you guys. My days are spent fulfilling my corporate duties and now that The Husband is home every night, we cook dinner together and actually have in depth conversations about stuff. I’ve also been hard at work on my secret project and catching up on Homeland. Oh and this is the first weekend I’ll be at home in weeks so I look forward to planning my outfits for Europe 😉

Happy Friday!

Best Bridal Shower Ever

We threw the most beautiful bridal shower for the most beautiful bride-to-be this weekend. I realized a party is no party without balloons and a mini Pomeranian. I Instagramed to high heaven but I also managed to take a million photos with my real camera so you’ll have to excuse me as I relive the shower detail by detail this week. If this party was any indication of what we can expect at the wedding next month, then I consider myself the luckiest bitch alive for being able to attend.

Till we meet in Paris my gorgeous #weddingcrew!

Theming It

Tomorrow night I’m hosting a beer tasting, scotch drinking, cigar smoking party for The Husband’s birthday/graduation complete with bar snacks and brownies. It will mark my official foray into themed parties. Before you know it, I’ll have more mason jars and chalkboard paper than I know what to do with.

Happy weekend!

My weekend was incredibly PG, except for the nudist beach part. Blacks beach in San Diego allows full on nudity and while prancing around naked isn’t my thing, we go because it’s less crowded than the clothed parts of the beach. It’s not easy getting there though. Think long, steep hike on rough terrain. I sustained an injury. Also, I learned that I giggle every time I see a penis so I spent the entire time at the beach laughing. The Husband called me immature.

Other than that, I ate a lot of kale and drank a lot of spicy water and took a lot of pictures of my dogs. We’ve decided to continue this ridiculously healthy eating thing a little while longer since we’re both feeling so ridiculously healthy. Cheers to cayenne pepper!

7 Whole Years

Seven years ago today, I was walking down the aisle toward my best friend. Instead of toasting with champagne tonight, we’ll be sipping spicy water and watching So You Think You Can Dance. That’s love you guys.


Happy anniversary James. Next year, I’ll refrain from cleansing on this date. I love you!

Cat Rescue

Last night The Husband and I rescued a cat and reunited him with his human dad.You should know that I’m always on the hunt for lost animals so this was like the best night of my life.

We heard this incessant meowing coming from outside our bedroom window and after some investigation we found an orange furball stuck on our roof. Thus began the rescue process. We removed the screen and I heroically stuck half my body out the window while The Husband held on to the other half. Then I made a bunch of kissy noises until the cat creeped my way and I was able to grab him. I pulled him through the window and we cuddled for a while. It was an instant connection. He made himself at home, played with the dogs and purred on my lap before we reluctantly called the number on his tag. Then his dad came to pick him up and we had to say goodbye. It was a dramatic night with a bittersweet ending. We were really proud of ourselves.

Happy Friday the 13th!

Tank didn’t stay still long enough for me to take a decent picture.

Relationships and Stuff

Can we talk relationships for a minute. I’ve been in the same one for almost 13 years and I’m only 29. Wrap your head around that people! It doesn’t get any easier either. We have to work really hard every single day to make each other happy and sometimes (or more than sometimes) we get lazy.

With that being said, I thought it would be fun to give each other relationship tips. I’ll tell you how we’ve managed not to kill each other and you tell me how you’ve managed not to kill each other.

My tip: determine your love languages. There are five and I speak all of them fluently, but mostly I like acts of service. This means, The Husband can show me how much he loves me by cleaning the shower. His love language is physical touch — he loves to cuddle while I’m all about personal space. Once we learned our love languages, we made attempts to speak each others. I know this probably just confused the hell out of you, but there’s a book on it and I highly suggest reading.

Also, no TV in the bedroom.

Okay, now give me your tips.

Going to the Desert

A salt water pool and lavender mojitos are awaiting our arrival in Palm Springs. Tomorrow I’ll announce the winner of the Made by Maru giveaway. Wednesday, I will be drinking in the sun. That means I’ll see you guys on Thursday. Don’t hate!

A Man and His Beard

Beard maintenance is a thing now, you guys. I was recently made aware that the coolest men are conditioning their facial hair with special made-for-beard products. Because I aim to be cool, I immediately purchased some Wild Man beard conditioner for The Husband. Now he smells like he was hit in the face by a lumberjack with an almond-tainted rosemary bush. There’s nothing sexier than a man who smells like a spa!

My Weekend

Sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, French fries. It was that kind of weekend. Don’t worry, there was strenuous exercise involved too. I work out hard to eat harder.

Somehow, The Husband convinced me to get on a bicycle (one of those thin-wheeled road bikes with the shoes you have to clip in, you guys). After a rough 18 miles and one small tumble when my legs literally collapsed, there are areas on my person that are still screaming at me. I promised her a Thai massage next weekend!
