“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

I saw this fun little A-Z questionnaire on a few blogs and decided I would do it! I always wanted to fill  these things out but always forget to go back and copy and paste them.

A. AREA CODE : Finally have admitted to myself that I am now fully a part of the 562.

B. BED SIZE: A queen size. The poor hubby probably wishes we had a King with how much I like to bed hog :)

Putting away laundry!

D. DOG'S NAME: No dog here! Hopefully one day. But I'm sure this guy below would have something to say about that.

E. ESSENTIAL "START THE DAY!" ITEM: Cereal and checking my favorite websites

F. FAVORITE COLOR: Darker reds 


H. HEIGHT: 5'4"

I. INSTRUMENTS YOU PLAY:  I used to *try* to play the piano when I was younger, but nothing successful ever came from it. I knew how to play "Mr. Turtle" and "Hot Cross Buns"

J. Job: Love what I do, but currently am not happy at the place I am employed.

K. KIDS: Not yet :) One day.... one day

L. LIVING ARRANGEMENTS:  Currently renting an apartment with the hubby in Seal Beach, Ca. It is pretty much a joke to find somewhere to buy out here.

N. NICKNAME: Tee, Nardoni (maiden name)



P. PET PEEVE: The customers at work that don't answer me when I ask how they are doing and just order their drinks. 

"Hi! How are you today?"
"Small coffee"
".... sigh....."

"I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. No... not the artful postures of love, not playful and poetical games of love for the amusement of an evening, but love that... over-throws life. Unbiddable, ungovernable - like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture. Love - like there has never been in a play." - Shakespeare in Love

"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." - Rhett Butler in Gone With The Wind
I love that you get cold when it is 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
- When Harry Met Sally


A younger brother

Z. ZOO ANIMALS YOU LIKE: ? Meerkats! They are so friggin' cute how they just sit there and stare at everything ... I just want to poke their tummies, lol.

Just too cute

                                                            "Some bunny loves me"

I have found a new blog that I absolutely love. I usually laugh at people that have blogs dedicated to their pets. It seems a little .... peculiar. But then I find cute little finds like this one and am obsessed. I know, I know.... such a woman as my hubby would say. (Actually he would just look at me and roll his eyes, but we'll just stay quiet on that one)

This is an adorable 2nd blog that a husband and wife duo have created for their dog Burger. She takes the cutest/funny pictures and gives them hilarious captions. Click here for stories about Burger's daily life at Hamburger House.

I actually found Burger's blog by going to his "parents" blog. I was looking for inspirational photos to help with the bedroom makeover that I am attempting, and I came across this blog. It is called  Young House Love and is from a newly married couple who are enjoying life and loving their first home together.

They blogged about their "over their heads" project with re-doing their bedroom (most of the stuff from hacking Ikea pieces and making them into their own fun pieces of furniture). They were able to take their bedroom from this ......

to this ......

Pretty amazing huh? You can check out the full room makeover here.

To see the rest of their awesome blog, you can check it out here

Hope you guys enjoy their blogs as much as I do :) Especially that little guy Burger.... so freaking cute

Sunday Fun DAY!

Well hello everyone :)

It is the end of another week. A Sunday night slowly approaching a Monday morning. I happened to stumble upon a really awesome clothing (and more!) website that I have fallen for. It is called Mod Cloth and is owned by a husband and wifey duo. They are adorable, plus they have an adorable pug too ;)

They put together this super awesome and cute web-scrapbook that talks about their story of putting Mod Cloth together and you can check it out here.

I put together a little photo list for you guys of all of my favorite items from their store. I really think that you should go check it out and enjoy all of their goodies, I'm really thinking about buying some of these dresses for myself. They are just sooo vintage-chic cute and adorable!

This little white dress with the red satin bow is one of my favorites  :) I love how it looks so simple at first and then if you look closely all of the white fabric is actually flowers.

Oh, and these adorable flats are a must have. So simple, yet they have that adorable little added extra with the ruffles on the front


This next dress just calls out to me as a sexy date night dress. Pair it with a pair of pretty black heels and cute earrings, and you would be set to go.

Need a fun summer dress? How about this blue, yellow and white one? Totally cute

So I hope that you like these as much as I did. Every day Mod Cloth adds new clothes to their website, and they even have a feature where their followers/shoppers vote on articles of clothing that they would like to be on the Mod Cloth website, and Mod Cloth happily obliges. They seem to have a great chemistry and a great thing going for them, so please go buy something and treat yourself while helping them out! <3

Hope everyone had a great week .... now onwards to the next

(we can do it.... we can do it.......)

Monday Rant Madness!

Eat Healthy
I don't care what you call it, but all i know is that I need to get rid of this crazy bump that has landed upon my stomach area and tell it to hide until next winter or something. If I would of known that age 26 would have brought along this stomach fat friend with it, I would have tried to at least prepare for it.  Oh, and the whole arms deciding they wanted to be bigger too? That has got to go.

I have so many fun things coming up in the next month that I need to get dressed up for, and let's not lie, look good for. I have my brother's high school graduation one weekend, and the next weekend is my college graduation. Plus .... summer is right around the corner which means,

sun + beach + swimsuit = oh dear lord.

I found this adorable dress at Target today that I plan on wearing to one of these occasions, and I definitely would love to at least look decent in it.

Speaking of Target, I saw this bike there today and my jaw hit the floor. It is by Liberty of London and their beach cruisers range in price from $170-$200 at Target. ( That is actually mildly cheap for a beach cruiser since most of the basic ones can easily be found for $300 or more) This bike just cries out to be used along the beach!!

Hope everyone has a good week. Thanks for listening to my mini rant too ;)

Inspiration FUN!

I found a new blog today that I just looove. You know when you find that one blog that just speaks to you? It has a gazillion DIY projects that just keep you jumping up and down in creatively flowing excitement? Well this is the blog that did it to me.

Introducing Centsational Girl. This blog is soo adorable. I am currently redoing our bedroom, and I have been re-inspired by her post of re-doing her little girl's room into a true blue surfer/shabby chic room.

I just loove this room, and she got those awesome frames on the wall from Aaron Brothers from their 1 cent after Christmas sale. How awesome is that?

I love the colors of light blues, silvers, and the mix of metallic grays that make up this room. I'm heading out to Ikea tonight, so hopefully I can get some cute finds to help me with my ideas.

Oh and btw, those awesome striped curtains are from Target. Perfect huh?

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! And stop by Centsational Girl for some more cute DIY projects and to see all of the other cute things she has thought up for some inspiration of your own :)
