I was just scrolling through the blog and correct me if I am wrong but I haven’t shared any photos from my trip to Minneapolis!! I can not believe this to be honest because we had a fantastic tine and by the way it was a freezing (weather was -5). Spring is fast approaching and I think this is my last chance to show pictures of us frolicking in the snow.

I am so excited for the weekend on another note. I have a few shots to share of Mexico still! I guess tho can wait till next week. Enjoy your days off!


YA! It is Friday and one day before my birthday..I am so excited to celebrate with my family this weekend at one of my favorite restaurants.

Eek! I just read that temperatures may drop to historic low and snow may fall by Friday night! That has not happened in 35 years. I can not believe that I am missing this. As much as I hate the cold, I would love to see this.

ps. I am in Minneapolis right now visiting this guy and celebrating my birthday!

What a fabulous weekend in Mexico! Cabo San Lucas was perfect – the weather was great, the food was delish and I did nothing…literally nothing. For 2.5 days I did not leave the pool. Above are a few snapshots of the weekend with friends. I hope to share more soon.

As you are reading this…I am in Mexico..I am so happy to be on vacation even if it is just for a few days. See you next week.

Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) in Norway is a really impressive view. It is seriously breathtaking! Preikestolen towers 1982 feet above ground and the cliff is 82×82 feet. I don’t know if I could stand on the cliff – I am so fearful of heights but if I ever make it Norway, I must at least attempt.

I can not believe it is already Friday! This week went by in a snap. I have been extremely busy between working and the blog and I think I am going to take some time to relax and have some fun.. and possibly not think about work!

What do you kids have on the horizon for the weekend? It is supposed to be beautiful weather in San Francisco! See you on Monday.

With Zara‘s latest look book!

Chocolate and peanut butter buckeyes made with love from my fave cooking blog – Smitten Kitchen! They look absolutely delish. I am tempted to create them in my own kitchen.

This over the top room! I would love to be able to pull this off.

J. Crew Spring 2011 – the chill just hit SF but I can’t wait to see these bright colors looking back at me from my closet

Simple hair styles (no hair tie necessary)

and most of all I am smitten with the fact that my bags are pack & I am LA bound. As you read this, I am on a flight to see my best friend get married this weekend! I will be posting next week about the amazing event!

See you tomorrow Lovies!

This is one of those weddings that will make you grin ear to ear. Between the bright shades of purple, the romantic details, the delicious cupcakes…they found their way into my heart! It is fun & flirty, has depth and their love definitely shines through these photos.

Friends, I am pleased to introduce to you to Rick and Yonit who have recently tied the knot in Calistoga.

A note from the lovely couple:

We were married over a long weekend at the end of July in Calistoga, Ca. I had dreamed about a vineyard wedding and Hans Fahden Vineyard exceeded all our expectations. Our vows were exchanged under a chuppa by Rabbi Ira Book on a lake replicated after Monet’s Water Lillies painting. The bride wore Jesscia McLintock in what caught her eye as “vineyard chic”. Due to the long-distance between them, her in NYC and him in Nashville, TN , he had sent her an orchid that had violet and lavender petals. As the plant blossomed so did their relationship. This inspired the shades of purple in their wedding decor. surrounded by 100 of our closest friends and family we saw only those that would join us through this long journey we were embarking upon. We felt truly loved. To pull in our location and colors, we made the numbers for the tables using wine corks and to enhance the romantic feel of wine cave we added tall candelabras. All Seasons catered our wedding, a well established restaurant and catering company. The food was exquisite using all local fresh ingredients. We liked that we could go to the restaurant in years to come and eat the same meal we had on our wedding day. The cupcakes were made by a ridiculously creative and accommodating baker Jennifer at DolceDolce bakery. Placed in the teahouse and on the patio overlooking the lake were framed facts about the evolution of our relationship as well as framed pictures of our childhoods. July 23rd was not only our wedding day, it was my husband’s birthday and also 2 years from the day we first met in Mexico. An old style phtotobooth sat on the patio to bring a bit of nostalgia to entertain the guests and add hilarious pictures into our guest book. We honeymooned at Playa Mujeres, Mexico to remind ourselves that what happened in Mexico didn’t stay in Mexico.
