Date Night!


Being with someone for almost 8 years certainly has its perks; you get to eat like a pig, burp, snore, pick your nose and do numerous other nasty things, yet you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing he's guaranteed to more than likely, still love you. Being with someone for 8 years can also be a bit of a drag(for lack of better words) occasionally. I talk to my friends about the fun, romantic dates they are going on or what boy they are kissing this week and then I hang up and go sit next to the old ball and chain... Now, don't get me wrong, I love Eric for sure, but it can be a bit difficult to sometimes not get caught in a rut. We've spoken about this numerous times and have come to the conclusion that we need to go on real live dates every few weeks to keep things exciting.

This morning while I was laying in bed, still half asleep with I'm sure tons of drool slobbering out of my mouth, Eric asked me out! We are going to this adorable little restaurant in our small town, and I am quite excited. It is close enough for us to walk, so I am praying the rain holds off at least until we get there. It would just be so romantic to walk home in the rain, right!?

In honor of our little date night, I have gathered a few photos of us over the years, and thought I'd share them with all of you! I hope you all have a magical weekend, and don't forget to enter my giveaway!!


Medieval Times for my 21st Birthday! Long time ago! ;)

A Special Birthday + New Tappers!

First things first! Today is a special day. It is the birthday of one of the most awesome, craziest, fun-loving, beautiful ladies I've ever had the privilege of knowing. My dear best friend Brooke turns the big twenty-something...

We are going to celebrate soon with a yummy mexican lunch and a few sips of tequila. I wish you the best birthday in the world and I am so excited to spend the day with you! :)


On another note... I got some brand new tappers at DSW for 35 doll hairs! I'm in love with them so I had Eric take a few photos of me dancin' around...

Baby Loves

The hardest part of moving out of my parents house and into my own little digs with Eric is not that I miss my old room or even my parents all that much! It's that I don't have a sweet little puppy love of my own. Every few (and I mean few) weeks, I find myself growing anxious. Normally I am a very happy person, but I find myself getting worked up over the dumbest things, or throwing a fit for no reason and then I realize... it is that time again... I have to get to my childhood home as fast as possible to give my pups a few good kisses and a lot of big hugs!

I am home right now to celebrate my Dad's birthday and have Passover din din with my family. I head back tomorrow, but right now I am enjoying some serious snuggle time with my fuzzy babes.

Yesterday's beautiful weather inspired a mini photoshoot starring my new favorite design! These awesome hippie-chic necklaces are now available for purchase in my shop and add a perfect touch to your favorite summer outfit. They are made out of 100% cotton yarn which is adorned with brass pyramid studs attached to a sturdy brass chain. I have a limited supply of the mint, cappuccino and strawberry yarn, so get one while supplies last! ;)

Creme de Mint


Cappuccino and Cream

I also want to give a shout out to my little cream dress. I found it on sale at Urban Outfitters the other week and while it is a tad big in the waist, a belt make it fit to perfection! It will definitely be a big go-to piece all summer long! :)

Have a great weekend!

Spring Cleaning + Special Discount

Happy Sunday my dear friends! This morning Eric and I woke up, cooked a delicious brunch of blueberry pancakes and crispy honey bacon and got down to business... Cleaning Day was among us! DUN dun DUUNNNN!!! I personally DREAD with all my heart cleaning. I love when it is finished(like right now and I can relax with a cup of hot lemon water(I know, I'm 90!) but until then I will make any excuse in the book to do some other activity. (Even exercise...)(Ugh!) I like taking numerous breaks throughout my given chores and often get sidetracked while Eric is busy scrubbin' away... Oh, he is so lucky to have me! ;)

I started taking some photos of the apartment and though I feel comfortable in our little living space, I realize it doesn't photograph as nicely... the walls are still pretty bare (we have some wonderful illustrations that need to still be framed) and we are missing some key essentials such as a kitchen table. So, instead of taking you on a tour, I instead want to share some of my favorite elements of our cozy little love nest.

I am deeply in love with our antique wooden ironing board turned coffee table. I also am quite fond of our circular area rug I found at Urban Outfitters for 30 bucks! Woohoo!

Here you can see more of the coffee table plus the couch where I am sitting right now! ;)

I purchased this incredible ceramic floral vase from Anthropologie months before we even moved into our place. It was love at first site and I knew I couldn't leave the store without it!

A few years ago, Eric bought me these amazing antique cast iron dog statues for Christmas. I have a strange and loving obsession with pups and these little cuties are just two of the many little dog knick-knacks floating around our home.

Now for the ***Special Discount***
In honor of spring cleaning day, I am offering all of my lovely readers and friends 20% off everything in my shop now through Thursday! Take advantage and stock up on all kinds of cozy winter goodies for next years big snow storms while purchasing some of springs biggest crochet trends!

Make sure to use coupon code: SPRINGCLEANING when checking out! ;)

Hello Brides!

The Leila Rose Headband

Calling all you beautiful country chic brides!! (That's what I plan to be when Eric and I eventually set the date! ;) Please check out a photo from my very first bridal inspired headband. I will be sure to post better pictures of the actual headband when I receive them, but it is a lovely, bright cream and gold sparkle crochet rose on two crochet bands. I find it to be utterly fabulous, if I do say so myself! :)

I hope you all have a lovely weekend! This is my first weekend in the apartment in 4 weekends so there is a ton of cleaning to be done... yuck... Fingers crossed the rain stops and we can at least go frolick outside!

Son of a Gun

Happy Friday and April Fools! I am home working super hard(while drinking some bubbly pink yummy beverage ;) on finishing up some fantastic new pieces for another photoshoot on sunday with the super duper talented Sharyn Frenkel! Kristyn Rudnet from Shimmer and Spice has also signed on to do makeup for the day. I can't wait, it is always such a fun time!

My dear friend Stephanie, aka redheaded bombshell, introduced me to Oh Land over the weekend and I've been having spontaneous dance parties in my apartment by myself ever since! Last night I even got Eric to do a .5 second little dance with me. A true accomplishment, I must say! I hope you enjoy as much as I do! Back to work for me now...
