happy friday-it’s white and gold-goddammit!– to you m’loves.

apparently my husband and i aren’t the only ones now in marriage counseling over “that dress.”

families and friendships are cracking up all over the country.

screw the red states and the blue states; please divide us into white + gold vs blue + black states instead—-cuz i’m sure as hell not hanging with those psychos who see blue/black.

in the spirit of silly, here are a few other things making me chuckle:
coffee

but first, this coffee mug and i need to have a make-out session, STAT.

app

are you geeking out over the perfect365 app too?

designed for the selfie + filter obsessed– {YOU know who YOU are….your friends and family don’t know who you are because you filter the shit out of your face on-line, but that’s a different post;} the perfect 365 app allows you to photo shop an entire sephora store on your mug for those photos that need a little more gloss, hair volume, and contour.

baby

but let’s be honest it’s so much more fun to lean toward the ridiculous.

i’m crushing hard on this new mom who used it on her 7-week old son; my kind of mommy fo’sure–let’s start a playgroup NOW!

beast

 my little person isn’t here yet, so my buffonery is still constrained to the beasts.

and yes, my husband’s silent treatment has been extended until monday.

beach

remember my girl crush post with christina sinclair?

this week i was honored to be featured on christina’s fab blog: beach babe fitness.

head on over to see how i got started in the fitness industry and some of my guilty pleasures {hint: four-letter words raise my serotonin levels.}

speaking of my penchant for profanity, whoever curated this list obviously knows my birthday is coming up.

check out the 19 perfect gifts for people who love to swear. i’m especially partial to the birthday banner, and think this needlepoint would look beautiful in the nursery.

 while we’re on the birthday subject, do you know what the number one song was on the day you were born?

this fun website tells you what your parents were fox-trotting to as you de-birth canaled.

who out there can top my bellamy brothers’ “let your love flow?”

but if easy-rolling, 70’s soft rock isn’t your groove, maybe like me, you’ll dig rihanna’s new song towards the sun from the soundtrack to the new animated movie from dreamworks, “home.

so there you have it!

my friday loves–which always includes YOU!

wishing you a sunny, gold + white, winter weekend.

see you on the other side of sunday.

it’s friday, i’m in LOVE!

friday

happy candy-coated friday to you my kittens!

are you in the mood for love?

even if you’re a valentine’s day hater {to be honest i kind of am, too} i have rounded up a few things that i hope will make you smile, swoon, gratefully belch, and leave you rubbing your tummies with glee.

but first, if you prefer tear drops over cream in your coffee, read the story behind this heart-shaped meadow; this widower’s ode to his beloved wife had me boo-hooing all over my keyboard this morning.

for reading a little less tragic, but still sweet, i ooohed and sighed over this article on how we all can learn from animal friendships.

…and just like that, i suddenly, now, have a hankering for a pet rhino.

i can personally attest; some of my truest, longest, + dearest love affairs have been with these four-legged angels.

and speaking of celestial beings; who’s gonna make this heart-shaped pizza for me?

head on over to how sweet eats and dinner: a love story for the cutest recipes for your valentine’s day pizza party—i would much prefer pizza over any chocolate-covered strawberry or caviar dish…but i’m trashy that way.

 champagne is off my valentine menu this year, but that doesn’t mean i’m not going to splurge on something sparkly. these aranciata rossa’s from san pelligrino are the perfect non-alcoholic, bubble-parties for your champagne flute.

flavored with REAL blood orange juice, these crisp, effervescent spritzers transport you right to the italian riviera; a nice little mid-february pick-me-up without the hangover.

laundry

is anyone else addicted to these in-scent laundry boosters?

if your wardrobe is more lululemon that lanvin and you like your yoga hot, your spin class swampy, and barre dripping with sweat, then you must add these to your wash + dry repertoire.

bounce bursts + downey unstoppables have changed the game in our laundry room.

gone are the days of the double, triple wash….one-capful of these magic beads and your clothes come out smelling farmer’s market-fresh.

~update: i recently found out these are NOT cruelty-free so i do NOT recommend them.

it’s no secret, i think the fifty shades of grey soundtrack is pretty banging! i’ve already overplayed the shit out of ellie goulding’s “love me like you do” in my classes, and the new beyoncé remake of “crazy in love” is hotter than georgia asphalt. but i think my new favorite track is AWOLnation’s remake of the bruce springsteen hit “i’m on fire.”

the_jinx.0

finally, are you guys watching “the jinx?“—–SO good!! SO creepy!

it’s a serial documentary on HBO that started this week {you have plenty of time to catch the first episode before the next installment airs this sunday night.}

they made a movie about bob durst a while back, “all good things“,–it was more of an “okay” thing, but this new series is worth your time.

so that’s all i got…valentine love to you and yours.

see you on the other side of sunday.

it’s friday i’m in love…

afterlight

friday happy to you m’loves!

it’s smiles and snuggles all around here these days.

why does priscilla think she’s a canine-blanket?

she’s thanking me for finding newport tails, a dog-walking, dog-obedience, & daycare service located in newport beach.

twice a week priscilla and jones are taken out with their neighborhood friends, and for two hours they play, swim, and get the exercise i’m unable to give them, lest it’s on a spin bike.

we LOVE newport tails!

here are few other things i’m loving:

reading

this summer i have read more books than i did during ms. mooney’s dreaded AP english course.

some have been great; some just provided a pretty accessory for my nightstand.

i still have a full shelf i’m trying to tackle before the leaves change and pumpkin spiced lattés return.

but i’m already looking forward to fall; this list of incredible books coming out has me rethinking my workload next season; wishing to swap a paycheck for historical fiction.

alta

speaking of fall, have you seen the new lookbook for joseph altuzarra for target?

it all goes on sale on september 14th.

i don’t think there’s an item i DON’T want.

i’m not one for sleeping on sidewalks the night before a movie opens, or camping out for concert tickets, but i might pluck down a lawn chair for tuxedo jackets and wrap dresses.

if given the choice of sandwiches, the peanut butter and jelly will always win queen of my homecoming court.

supply me with a plate with this salty/sweet combo bite, and i’m 8 years old again, back on coral tree circle, gobbling down back t0 back episodes of different strokes and facts of life.

when i’m having a rotten day i definitely can cheer myself up with a peanut butter & jelly sandwich….or two.

apparently we have sandwich stereotypes.

what’s your favorite, all-time sandwich?

check out what your favorite says about you.

stellar

so are you guys on stellar?

please tell me you are.

i am obsessed with steller; an app that takes instagram and storytelling to the next level.

i definitely have the blind barber on my brooklyn to-visit list, and outside lands 2014 looks like it was a show not to be missed.

i have signed up; don’t judge me by my first story; it’s a learning process for sure.

{you can judge me by how many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches i can consume in one sitting; paging OA.}

soludos

yesterday i snagged this beach bag from soludos.

i’ll be using it as my carry-on for my upcoming week in the south.

it holds everything and is machine-washable; a plus for me…… i freak out about all the germs that get on bags, etc when i travel.

ad291c70bacde50574b7f8163b585212

so yes tomorrow hunkiest and i take our summer vacation.

remember this post on lake life?

we’re sorta, kinda re-creating this; maybe even add a road-trip along the way.

the theme for our trip is “screened porches and sweet tea.”

wishing you a restful weekend of slow-jams, afternoon naps, and make out sessions at midnight.
