Much needed {sweaters}

{all images via zara}

I don't know about you but this chilly weather is way too cold for me! I can not warm up no many how many layers I am wearing. While doing my fair share of shopping over the weekend I stumbled upon many cozy sweaters at Zara. I found many more at the store that I loved {they do not have them online}.  I suggest heading to your local Zara!

Modest Fashion {holiday dress}

{images via bcbg}

While hitting up the mall on BLACK FRIDAY I discovered some great Holiday Party dresses {modest dresses} at BCBG. To look festive & beautiful you do not need to dress like a vegas party girl {although my bff was shopping for vegas attire, which was not hard to find!}. I spotted modest dresses at BCBG, Bebe, H&M, and JCrew. I found the selections online to be different that what I saw in stores. Now I just need somewhere fancy to go...

That time of year {Christmas decorating}

I plan on doing this, this weekend {that is if I can get out of bed, my belly hurts big time from all the gluten yesterday}. I enjoy this time of year & decorating our home all festive. The ornaments & decor are all out in the family room waiting for me. And we might just get a tree today. Enjoy the long weekend.

I have been on the hunt for white cotton napkins, so I stopped by Kohls and to my surprise I stumbled upon some really fun home decor. I was shocked! Their prices are great {well on sale that is!} many areas of the store where having a promotion of 50-70% off. I found throw pillows {for our living room re-decorating project}, this deer head & a few other goodies. Check out your local Kohls.

I have been searching for a specific shade of grey nail polish for some time now. So I was thrilled when I stumbled upon matte grey while browsing Urban Outfitters. In store the nail polish was two for $8 { a great price}! But online they have a bigger selection than my local UO. If you are looking for some fun colors check it out.

While working in San Fran I was showing around a couple of my Japanese colleagues. We took the Bart to Berkeley to check out what the students were wearing and to visit some sneaker shops. The campus is beautiful, I loved the buildings & all all the huge trees & rolling green hills. I could not believe how warm it was in San Fran... 80's all weekend long!  San Fran is such a fun city & I LOVED all the shopping! Just wish I had my girls with me to shop it up!

Dreaming of {a baby}

We are looking to grow our family through adoption. Sadly, our agency has informed us there are too many families trying to adopt and not enough babies. So PLEASE help us spread the word... if you know of anyone who may be looking to place their baby in a loving, christian, young, healthy, active family PLEASE tell them about us.
The day we welcome a baby into our home will be the greatest day of my life. I can hardly wait!

In memory of Andy

 {image via}


Although this blog is not about surfing, it is dear to my heart. My hubby's passion is surfing, I worked in the surf industry for years, and every trip bu & I take revolves around the ocean. Whenever someone so young passes on it makes me stop & think about my life & how wonderful it is. Life is short & we never when our time on earth will come to an end. My prayers & love go out to Andy's beautiful wife & all his family & friends. You will be missed.
