Color Scheme

I love the mix of pastels with a pop of fuchsia.

 Well what happened was...
2010(January 6th to be exact) was the year I got engaged and forgot to shower.  While I understand the element of surprise is crucial in an engagement it is also crucial not to be wearing your glasses and  have your hair plastered to your head with grease. Other than that... I said "yes" and then have complained for an entire year about how I should have washed my hair that night. 

Then we decided to buy a cute little ranch... but there was one problem.

The inside was not so cute.

There was a lot of this...

And a little bit of this. Unfortunately, I  did not take pictures of us wanting to murder each other. I swear painting brings out the worst in someone.

Slowly our little ranch started to become a home.

While we build, Hank destroys.

After all of that was done I think I finally decided to shower and we went to more weddings than I can count.

There has been a lot of wedding planning and a long way to go. 

If you cannot tell I have some serious cabin fever. I have a stomach virus and am conducting all business from my sofa.

Have a Good One!

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas. I am gone to my parent's house for the long weekend.
I am planning on doing a whole lot of nothing. For your viewing pleasure Hank and Roy did a Christmas photoshoot...

Feeling Inspired: Interiors

After seeing these images I am feeling inspired to give our house some TLC after the holidays.

LOVE, Chloe

I have been patiently waiting for LOVE, Chloe to make an appearance at my local Sephora. I caught a glimpse of it while we were in the airport waiting on a cancelled flight.  The ad campaign makes me want to buy it without even trying it.  It has been described as "understated chic" and "reminiscent of your grandmother's powder room".  What I would give for a sample in my stocking.

Technical Difficulties: Sort of Solved

While doing my last minute Christmas shopping I decided to get myself a little something...
A NEW HARD DRIVE. The fact that my hard drive is full is stupid.  

I have been working on a video I made of our NYC trip for over a week and am slowly making progress. 
I finally figured out how to cut the clips with iMovie HD (who even knew that was your MAC). Now I am struggling to figure out how to get HD videos on YouTube. Anyone know anything about compressing files? 

This weekend Doug and I went to our first holiday party and I finally got to wear sequins. Needless to say I was excited. 
I had a crush on Doug in his tux. Do not tell him or his head will get bigger than it already is.  

That is all for now. Glad to have my hard drive back. 

What would you do?

Is this a do or don't? I am really obsessed with leopard but need to find the courage to wear it.

monday morning

Monday is here again.  I am currently having some technical difficulties which is why I am only putting pretty pictures for the time being. Every time I try to upload pictures it says "ERROR: Disk Full".  You would think that someone with a blog would be a whiz when it comes to computers but I have BIF(borderline intellectual functioning) when it comes to these things.

In other news, I finally ordered save the dates. I am a huge slacker and waited until last minute.  I am so in love with them. This picture kind of reminds me of them.

Home Sweet Home

We are back! Doug and I had an amazing weekend in NYC. 
Things started pretty rough when we sat on the runway for 3 hours before our flight was cancelled. I am a huge fan of canceling flights. It beats the alternative of crashing.  Once we got there it was party time central. 

Central Park 

Mike and Lauren(can you say engagement pics?)
Central Park

Getting ready to ice skating in Central Park

Zumi got checked off the birthday list. 

I look drunk, Lauren looks pretty, and Mike looks creepy. 

Doug insisted. yeah right.

Looking gangster and avoiding bedbugs. 

And... drum roll please...
