Day O’ Love

Illustrations, Lists

day o' love

I’m early. :) But I wanted to put up a little something for the occasion. Over the years I’ve changed my point of view on Valentine’s Day and have learned to embrace it. It’s a cute reminder to do what you should be doing all year long. Showing love. Be it for your hubby, pooch, parents, products, etc.

Here are some things I am loving right now:

Time to work out. It’s time for myself and I cherish it.

Essie Nail Products – To Dry For top coat and Sole Mate nail polish. The toes are looking cute in this deep and dark wine color.

Project Runway – I love to watch the designers work

Pepperclipp – I love this girl’s photography. She’s only 20 years old. Amazing.

So show some love and add your faves to the list, whatever you love, share.

I’m desperately out of the loop.

Be Still



Completely random list because my life is full of some sort of crazy lately.

  1. Car broke down on my first day of work.
  2. Thankfully it broke down when I stopped at the store after work.
  3. I got my car back the next day. All it needed was a super duper jump. Ugh, my car.
  4. Invitation proofs are approved.
  5. Dinner is chosen.
  6. Flowers are chosen.
  7. Keeping up with the workouts, trying and reaching my goal of four times a week.
  8. Getting adjusted to a new job that has a lot of information. I’m taking it all in, and it can get crazy. But I’m happy.

The best times of the day right now are when I take a little break here and there to have some quiet time reading my book. Now is one of those times.

13 Things


13 things

1. I am the youngest and only girl out of three kids. My brothers and I (all seven years apart) have the same dad, my parents have been married over 25 years.

2. When I was little, I rode my PowderPuff bike around the bullnose tile of our pool, fell in, and my dad swam in to save me. I swam away and kicked him because I believed my friend who said sharks were in the pool. That’s the first time I swam by myself.

3. I have weird food things. ex. I like cheese on pizza and some fondue, but block of cheese appetizers or a slice of cheese for a snack? Blech.

4. My amount of “beauty marks” are increasing by the hour. Thank you Grandmas on both sides.

5. I have two birthmarks, one is a heart on my inner elbow (is that right?) and one on my thigh that’s the shape of California.

6. I’m from California.

7. I have an obsession with shoes but I don’t like feet. So don’t act like you’re going to touch me with your bare feet, I’ll run.

8. I used to be so jealous of people who wear glasses or braces. Double the jealousy if you had both.

9. I wish I could wear a ring on my middle finger but apparently they are too big, nothing fits. I love that look.

10. I can’t go on rollercoasters, they scare me to death. Maybe it’s the sensation of being dropped. Not cool.

11. I love accents. Not a surprise that the fiance has a rockin’ Colombian one.

12. Techno geek is a good name for me. I love the latest and greatest techno stuff. Almost time for a new cell phone, hopefully.

13. My favorite foods are seafood, pizza, hamburgers, ice cream and chocolate.

*pic from Fuddruckers. Their burgers are so good. Expensive, but good.

Dessert Menu? Yes please!


pink and green

I think it’s time for a list. If you know me at all in person, online, whatever, you know that I love sweets. My sweet tooth is sick and I have something with a touch of sugar every day.

So anyway, on to the list of my favorites and what I think you must try.

  1. Molten Lava Chocolate Cake, Chili’s – This is to die for. I’m sure you have heard that expression before but seriously, the fiance and I roll our eyes to the back of our heads over this dessert. One time I was so greedy I said I could handle the dessert by myself, just once. I couldn’t but it was fun trying.
  2. Creme Brulee, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse – The menu is out of control at this restaurant. Be ready to spend some cash but we went there for a very special birthday. At the end of the meal I couldn’t say no to the dessert menu and the creme brulee was chosen. This is melt in your mouth goodness with real vanilla bean and fresh fruit on top. Mm mm mm.
  3. Sweet Potato Pecan Pie, Pappadeaux – The trick to making this even better is to ask for it heated with a scoop of ice cream on top. Decadent!
  4. Fruit Tart Cake, Whole Foods – I just made up the name right now, maybe I’m right. I think it’s a cross between a fruit tart and a cake. If you love cream cheese, fruit tarts and vanilla cake you will love this. It’s a favorite for birthdays, quickly becoming a tradition with the family.
  5. Rookie Magic, Red Robin – Oreo cookie milkshake from heaven, with an Oreo on top. Need I say more?

Get crackin’ on this list and work out shortly after. 😉 Have anything to add? Do tell.
