Personal Planning

December 31, 2010

I’m so jazzed for this new year.  I have some of the best memories of 2010 and I can’t imagine 2011 being anything short of spectacular… So I’m also pretty excited that I get to just my brand-spanking-new Kate Spade weekly planner refill!  I’ve had this since November and I can’t wait to fill in the days with all my plans (most are pretty mundane but I have a few trips in the works too!).  The illustrations by Jenny Bowers are going to look uber cute with my kelly green leather organizer!  Gosh, I’m such a nerd….

despicable me

December 31, 2010

Now that we have watched Despicable Me three times thus far on our family vacation, we can safely say that we are now experts on this little movie.  If you haven’t seen Despicable Me, we highly highly recommend it.  An animated children’s movie filled with adult humor, cute children’s names, and many endearing moments between the characters.  Definitely one to steal your heart!  Not to mention, that the music throughout the movie is to die for.  Very tempted to download the soundtrack on iTunes, its pretty addicting!

Inspiration from Intermix’s holiday lookbook for how to dress my sequin skirt for New Year’s Eve.  Love how sassy + cute + comfortable this look is – festive without trying to hard.  I can only hope I look this fetching on 12/31/10! (Image via Coco & Kelley)

san fran plans

December 30, 2010

Instead of doing Christmas gifts this year, my boyfriend and I decided to take a trip to San Francisco during my school’s winter break.  Neither of us have been there and it has been at the top of our lists for awhile!  Now that we have gotten through Christmas, we are really starting to plan the trip and research places to eat and things to do so that we can make reservations.  Anyone from the San Fran area or who has been there have any suggestions for us?  Would love to hear them!  We are screaming with excitement for this…

Liberty Wood Puzzles

December 30, 2010

Hi, I am a patient nerd and I’ve been in love with the art of putting together puzzles after my sweet grandparents, Mimi & Papa, painstakingly taught me how when I was itty bitty.  My OCD characteristics make me a phenomenal puzzle maker… Just saying. I’m always up for a puzzle challenge and I was introduced to Liberty Puzzles a few summers ago while visiting Michigan.  I’ve completed two of these puzzles while in Colorado… And as you can see from the images above, these are not ordinary cardboard, die-cut puzzles – they are wood, lazer-cut jigsaws.  The third image…

These puzzles are pretty challenging but when finished, you really feel like you completed a work of art.  They come in a range of xtra-small to xtra-large (the bigger, the more expensive).
