I’m in love….finally.

It’s never a good idea to go last minute puppy browsing.  My friend Chrissy has wanted a little dog for quite some time and always tries to convince me to get one with her.  (We are neighbors!) I don’t know what got into me but for some reason last night I got a hankering to see a little pup or two so off to Petland in Frisco we went. 

I love Petland because you can play with the little fur balls for as long as you want.  This is dangerous, I repeat, this is DANGEROUS. 

The first dog we saw stole Chrissy’s heart and I’m about 85% sure she’s going  back there to bring him home forever.  He’s the sweetest toy australian shepherd you will ever see.  Did you notice that he’s a toy? As in so cute and tiny you could just die with happiness?

He was such a little cuddler.   Then we saw the cotton ball.  He’s a natural blonde….just like me!  Although, I have no clue what kind of pup he is.  He’s just cute.  I’ll leave it at that.

Oh…those puppy eyes!  And that sweet little face!!

Ok, ok, ok so it’s all well and good and my heart was still intact.  Up to this point I was totally in the clear.  No burden or tugging in my spirit to take anybody home, until…

SLAY ME WITH THOSE BABY BLUES!! Oh my gosh, I want I need I covet I have to have him.  Listen, I’m not a huge pet person but a beautiful husky is the one dog I’ve wanted forever.  He was gorgeous, sweet and terrified.  He sat shivering as we held him in our lap for about 15 minutes or so.  Huskies are super shy at first and it takes a little bit for them to warm up to you.  But once they do….it’s love.

I apologize for the multitude of pics you’re about to see of my new infatuation.

We are meant for each other!

I was a smitten kitten for this little guy.  Then I found out his birthday is 2 days before mine.  WHA?!?!  I.AM.DYING!

After about 30 minutes of petting him he started to relax a bit.  I needed to get on home before I made a hasty decision.  I sat him down and got up to leave but he started to whine.  That sweet pathetic RIP MY HEART out baby puppy whine.  Oh good grief, I’m tearing up right now just thinking about it. 

I can’t have a puppy.  Do you know my life?  Sometimes I don’t even know why I have an apartment here in Dallas.  There’s no way that huge beautiful beast of a dog would be happy in blazing hot Texas living in a one bedroom apartment in the suburbs with a girl who is never home. Right?  RIGHT?!  Oh snap, I need somebody to talk some sense into me before I turn around and get the little precious blue eyed wonder pup. 

Sigh, one day I will have a pretty little husky of my very own.  One day.  Maybe tomorrow?  No, no I shouldn’t.  I don’t think.  Eeek….I’m in trouble.

Hey, Instax — I Think You’re Cute.

Lately, I’ve been very much into photography.  What I mean by that is, I’ve been very much into the idea of photography.  I’ve purchased some lovely little cameras and had the best of intentions to learn photoshop and other tools of the trade but I’m not doing so hot.  However, I do ::love:: my iPhone camera and will snap that thing at every opportunity.  I enjoy pretty pictures and easy to use cameras which is why I so very much yes please want this…

A pretty Instax camera of my very own.  And then I shall hop around and take pretty pictures all over the land and sea.  Much like these:

(all images found on We Heart It)

I will also hunt each and every one of my friends down until my bedroom wall can look like this:

(my friend Fred Egan sent me this picture as an idea for a wall but I cannot remember where he got it from! Blast! I’ll find out and post it later on!)

Get into my arms, little Instax!! Does anybody have one?  Or know the best/cheapest place to find one? Or know any websites with pretty Instax pictures for inspiration? 

Thanks for reading!! Your comments and thoughts make me super happy.  You’ll find good people all over this blog and in the comments section.  You rock, kitty cats.

If you know me at all, you understand how much I ::love:: Harry Potter.  I started reading the books when I was in college and was immediately put under enchantment.  Like I’ve said before, I wish so badly that Hogwarts exists and die a little each time I remember it doesn’t. 

Until now…
The Universal Studios Harry Potter theme park is NOW OPEN!!!!! Yea, I’m planning the trip for September/October and I cannot cannot cannot wait.  Here are some pics from the grand opening, taken from this fantastic website.  My heart can barely contain the good vibes.  I’m getting light headed just thinking about it.

I’ve finally realized why I ::love:: blogging so darn much.
Because I can post…

WhAtEvEr I WaNt!
(however I want to do it.)

There aren’t too many places in the world where a person can feel such creative freedom.  I blog by the same rules I follow when decorating my *adorable* apartment or buying *sometimes weird* clothing — I choose what makes me happy.  Simple as that.

This means that I can post a picture of my dream house.  Yep, it’s a tree house (from We Heart It) and I will continue to dream about living in one, until I do.
Or maybe share a picture of the Oregon coast, taken by my friend Drew.  The purpose?  Because I think it’s beautiful.   

I might even share a quote.  Not to show off my massive amounts of knowledge or wit, but simply because they speak to me.

You don’t have a soul.  You are a soul.  You have a body.
–CS Lewis

I like nonsense.  It wakes up the brain cells.
–Dr. Seuss

I guess, if I want, I can daydream about future dates that I’ll go on.  xoxo

and wish that my hair still looked like this…

Have I talked about my all time favorite promise?  No?  Well, now is as good a time as any.  Rainbows. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. (Charlotte, NC – taken with my lovely iPhone)

I also think it would be wonderful to have this in my living room, regardless of how old I am…

I don’t even mind posting unflattering pictures of myself (from my birthday extravaganza last year).   Keep scrolling to find out why I was completely geeking out…

Cupcakes flown in to Austin, TX from my favorite bakery in NYC!  A total surprise.  Thanks again, Katie and Chrissy!  ❤

Yep.  So that is why I like love to blog. 
I hope you have places in your life where you feel absolute freedom to be exactly who you are without the pressure to perform and entertain. is just one of my many places.
