TGIF- White out


After I saw this picture in Domino Magazine a while back I knew my next couch had to be 
1. Leather 2. White 3. Tufted


So after searching and searching for the perfect couch with no luck, I decided to have it custom made. We used Sofa Craft, and couldn't be happier.  They literally will make anything you bring them, so I showed them this picture and they made me this lovely couch. We've only been in our house for a year so excuse the nakedness of my family room. It's one thing at a time over here, this is what we got so far



Hope you have a wonderful weekend and while your at it why not whip up some sweet treats. I think I will be making these for the kids. ENJOY!


For the Recipe of these cupcakes and all things yummy head over to Young Married Chic.

Eggs Benedict


I love this breakfast, it easy to make and so yummy. I don't make it too often, but I couldn't resist for my hubby's birthday breakfast. Add some avocado, bacon,  & maybe spread with cream cheese add a little tomato, and cheese and you've got a gourmet breakfast at home. Enjoy!



Recipe found here for the sauce (make sure to add cracked pepper), and here for the ingredients for the eggs benedict. Also you can just buy the store bought mix for Hollandaise Sauce and just add butter and milk. Both are great.

 Well this weekend was super busy celebrating the wonderful Father's in our lives. We spent lots of time loving up daddy and telling him how much he means to us. To add a little cherry on top it was my Father-in-law's birthday and we all went to a U2 Convert. Lenny Kravitz opened, it was so awesome. I loved every second, I don't think I stopped dancing the whole night.

Have a Banana


Pictures via Sheena from the little red house

My kids are obsessed with Banana's right now and are always asking for a chocolate one. I have been wanting to make them myself, but just haven't done it yet. Now because of this post I will be doing it this week with my kiddos. Can't wait.

Love it



How simple and lovely are these cute little rings. I love the gold mixed with the purple, but wouldn't mind the silver and gold either. Decisions. 
Seen here, can get them here.

Finished a six mile mud run at Camp Pendelton. If you haven't done it, you should. So much fun.

Secretly Wishing

I was here right now. The weather is crummy today and maybe, just a little bit, I am thinking of how wonderful my trip to Cinque Terra was.
pictures taken by me
It was my favorite place on our Italian getaway. I could have stayed for days.  It was so amazingly gorgeous. The turquoise waters were in itself enough to make me want to extend my trip. I have tons of pictures to post of this beautiful city.


but this picture was one I just had to add. A while back I did a post on Italy and how I couldn't wait for my honey and I to show off some PDA while relaxing in Italy. Well, these two did enough for the whole trip. I don't know them, but we couldn't help but watch and guess their story. Maybe two lovers, who just met for the first time or maybe his mistress. We will never know, but Italians sure are lovers.

Happy Hump DAY ;)

The sky is falling

Is it too late to start spring cleaning?
This morning I have been on a mission to clean out my cabinets. 
Honestly, I feel lighter and much cleaner already.

It also helps when you get a few new kitchen items from Anthro. 


Then I looked out my window to see this lovely site. We've been waiting for our yard to get finished for so long

 It's going to be a great day.

TGIF - Bon Appetit





It's been a long week, sickness and all sorts of things. I'm just glad it's FRIDAY!! Tonight we are having friends over for dinner and I couldn't help but want to make everything in this article. You gotta love Gwyneth, she might just be too perfect. I'll be steaming up the kitchen today. What will you be doing?

Enjoy your weekend.

Olive & Cocoa

I dog eared a few pages of this mag. Well I always do, but I also tore it out and put it in my "want" folder. I am loving these bowls. They could really go anywhere in your home. Mine would probably go in my bathroom or next to my bedside table. Where will you put yours?


 Instead of posting everything thing I love, these are just a few items I would totally put in my house






Wouldn't you just LOVE to wear this around your neck, given to you by your honey?


and I will totally send this to my sweet toothed friend and I wouldn't mind getting one either. 


Happy Shopping.
