“wedding bells”?

I assume there is some history behind “wedding bells”, but I never hear any bells ringing at any of the weddings I’ve been to. I can imagine being announced husband and wife and the church starts ringing it’s bells, how super cute and romantic… anyway! Our dear friends Eric and Diana tied the knot a couple weeks ago, it was a really nice ceremony and it was so much fun to dance all night with all our friends.

However, finding something to wear proved to be a bit of a challenge. I had an idea of what I wanted but had absolutely no luck for weeks! Finally, I went into Zara and found this beauty shoved into the sale rack. I love wrap dresses, something about them is so sexy, I dunno. Anyway I fell inlove and had to drag myself away before I bought it in all three colors… haha.

Oh, and don’t let the pictures fool you, it is purple. For some reason in every picture we took it looks just as blue as Mel’s dress. Weird

DRESS – Zara, SHOES – Report (my new favorites), HAT – Vintage(Nicole and I swapped for the night, mine is the brown one)


Two more things;

1.) My hubby was in the bridal party and looked so handsome!

2.) Why the heck didn’t anyone get pictures of me being twirled around by our inebriated guy friends???? Those are the pictures I want to see! haha

Such a great time, Congrats Eric and Diana!


Outfit 07/09/09

YAY I’m posting! Oh blog, how I’ve missed you! I’m so glad to be back! Now, I’m gonna take this slow and start with just updating like twice a week, cuz I so easily let myself get overwhelmed with eveything I do all week… OK, enough chit chat, on with the outfit pics!

This is what I wore to our dear friends’ rehearsal dinner at The Elephant Bar in Irvine…

TOP – Forever 21, SKIRT – H&M, SHOES – Borrowed from Nicole, RING – Forever 21, POLISH – Sephora’s “Maniac” “I’m Wired”.

I love the rope detail on this top, it’s a racer back and so cute, I couldn’t get a good pic of the back though and ran out of patience, so you’ll have to take my word for it 😉

The waist detail on this skirt is so great, and I pretty much love everything with pockets. Nicole and I always gasp and squeel “pockets!” whenever we shop together. We’re awesome, what can I say?

I had this exact color polish in mind when I entered Sephora, pink with an orange hue, and they totally delivered… Next day I found this ring in almost the exact same color, so great.

More to come, very soon.




Once again my week has been a bit crazy… I can think of like ten things I should be doing right now… Oh well!

The rundown of Memorial weekend:

We celebrated my step-moms birthday Saturday night, HUGE party with a band, dancing, taco bar, bartender and just having a grand ol’ time. The next day was the “relaxing by the pool BBQ” with volleyball and plenty of  beer and sunbathing. I took the most amazing nap from like 4:30 to 6, just lying in the sun.

Monday was Nicole’s birthday, I got her THIS.

Forever 21 has THE GREATEST “american apparel esque” tees right now… I bought four! I also bought a floral skirt and a ring but guess what! I dropped my bag at dairy queen!!!!!! It is gone forever! I was and still am SO bummed! I decided I’m going back cuz I need those tees, and at $5 each I’m going to get one in every color!

That night we saw Star Trek, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, at one point my hubby was actually on the edge of his seat leaning forward with his chin on his hands… adorable. He’s a trekky and he didn’t even know it. Anyway, I really recommend it…

One more thing, I finally DIYed a shredded shirt, and finished it. It only took me two hours! I’m wearing it in the pics below except I can’t find the pic of the back. I will update with it later.


It was a great weekend, can’t wait to get off work and start the next one!

On Sunday we spent the day at the beach with my nephews and sister-in-law. I bought them some buckets and shovels, you know the normal kid beach day stuff and this is what happened after about an hour of shoveling sand into their buckets…



Ah, babies make the world a happy place…


Surf Benefit Pictures

A couple of weeks ago Kenny and I heard that one of our favorite musicians would be performing in town for a surf benefit. We decided it would be a nice treat for us, so we decided to go. Well we got to meet him, Jake Shimabukuro, and he signed our ukuleles. It was such a nice night, even though I ended up looking like crap in both the picture with Jake and with Rob Machado (pro surfer). No one could figure out how to take a pic with my camera, including my Hubby, so in both pics I’m laughing and trying to explain to press and hold the button down… geez people…

Watch Jake on YouTube, he’s seriously amazing…



Donovan Frankenrieter(spelling?), Jake and Rob Machado…



Kenny, Jake and me…

What I wore; Leather Jacket – gifted (amazing), Bandage Skirt – “No Rest For Bridget”, Tank- F21, Necklace – F21, Shoes – Modcloth Safari Chic Booties (click here for pic)

Quick Pics

Work has been ridiculously busy the past two weeks… seriously. I’ve been getting off work between an hour and two and a half hours late every day.

Just wanted to give you some pics of my weekend with my beautiful sisters and their friends…

Hopefully I will be back to normal blog scheduling very soon!


These first two are of my sister, Chelsie.
