A Pop of Color

You may recognize this end table from a DIY I did before here and though I loved it then, Mr. Hughton and I decided it was time for a change. He had never painted anything before so we went down to Home Depot and bought these two beautiful colors They accent each other so well and its now become one of my favorite spots in the whole apartment. Don't you love when your little projects turn out better than you planned?

Puppy Parade

Outfit Details:
Nautical tank and Tweed shorts-Forever 21
Tights and Flats-Target
Bow belt-thrifted

We took our little man to the dog park the other day. We're starting to make this a regular thing. He needs more interaction with other pups for I fear he's getting too used to the idea that he's actually a human being. Although we love to make him a part of our family, definitely guilty of treating him like my unborn child, every now and then he deserves a taste of reality. We didn't hesitate to take a little photo shoot, however, before we entered the gated world. I really think he's starting to make friends. It's like taking your child to school for the first time... at first its hard to let go, hard to watch them meet new kids and begin to play on their own, but once you see how happy it makes them, you want them to keep coming back and never lose that glow. Yep, I'm that crazy animal lady who treats her animals like children and proud of it!

Couldn't leave the house without a quick shot with my lovely little girl, either.

Funny Face

Today is a tribute to one of my all-time favorite Audrey movies, Funny Face. If you haven't seen it, you are very much missing out. Is it any wonder that the combination of Fred Astaire, Audrey Hepburn, the Gershwins, and Paris achieved success? Between the ravishing dance numbers and high fashion photo shoots who couldn't fall in love with this balmy romance. It shows Audrey's true beauty in the most natural form as Fred Astaire takes her from an owly libranian to a luxurious model. Yet you can't take the brain out of the girl. Like I said, a must see!

Style:Valentines Edition

Outfit Details:
Pins and Needles Shirt-gift from my lovely cousin, Bri
Bandeau and Polka Dot Hi-Lo skirt-Forever 21
Shoes-Lauren Conrad from Kohls! 

I absolutely love these pieces. I wear the red top and these new periwinkle shoes practically every other day it seems. I'm obsessed. And I figured the red and polka dot combo was very Valentines. And the pink tulips courtesy of my wonderful man make a lovely addition to these photographs he took that I'm so proud of! He thinks he's horrible at photography but I think he's got some untapped creativity in there, don't you?

Pre-Vday Celebration

Family Staring Contest?


For our Pre-Valentines day Celebration, Mr. Hughton and I made some Heart-Shaped Onion Burgers. YUM! And super easy recipe. Just add one packet of Liptons Onion Mix to 2lbs choice of Ground meat. My father is a big hunter so we chose to make Elk burgers! They were amazing. Add your choice of toppings and buns and presto! :) Once midnight came along, we decided a stroll in the rain to Walgreen for some cardmaking utensils and some Arizona Ice Teas was a wonderful idea. We wanted to take Wolfie but he seemed a little too inconspicuous in Kyle's jacket. After this rendezvous , we stayed up all hours of the night making each other homemade Valentines. We feel they're much more meaningful this way.

I love this boy.

Saturdate afternoon

On Saturday, the manfriend and I had a wonderful Date Day with our little furry man, Wolfie. We spent the day watching my bestfriend, Holly play softball for her college team, UC Merced v. UCLA and might I say, my girl kicked some serious booty. I'm so proud of her! And I've missed her so. Her living in Merced and me here in San Diego makes for a very complicated friendship but we do what we can to make time to see each other. The day was beautiful. Lightly sprinkling one minute, bright and sunny the next. The variety is, to me, perfect weather.
