A year ago today:

We got all gussied up...

...and had a great time.

Love you, Hub.

Office artwork

I've been looking for prints to hang up in my office. I was convinced I wanted something bold and graphic design-y and typographic (and I haven't necessarily ruled that out), but then I stumbled upon these prints by Matt Lyon:



The Letter V (of course!)
I just love the colors, geometric patterns and the abstract-ness of it all. There is also a typography collection, so maybe I can get the best of both worlds. Friends, I may have just struck gold.

Happy Birthday

Puppy turns one today! Happy Birthday, Mila. I remember when you were so tiny and snuggly. Like so:

So tiny and squishable...

 So protective of her toys from day 1

One of her first walks

Learning the joys of sunbathing

And here she is just being so effing cute. 

Yes, we love our spoiled pup. And to think, just last year she was a tiny, wrinkly (and in all likelihood, not very cute) newborn and we were getting ready for the wedding. What a crazy year it's been! Here's to many more, my furry child.

 P.S. Sorry we bore you so much. Zzzzz....

After a long study day

So today I finished my seismic design class. It's the home stretch from now till October 29th and 30th. EEEK!

Anyway, I got home and decided to whip up an early dinner. Which consisted of eggs (scrambled with mushrooms and topped with cherry tomatoes) and coffee.

I love me some breakfast for dinner. And coffee. And when you have a cute mug like this, how can you resist? Speaking of being unable to resist, I also had the following in honor of this here blog:


To top it off, I also had a chocolate-and-caramel chip cookie (baked by my mother-in-law, henceforth to be referred to as Queen of Cookies). I didn't get a picture of the cookie though. I'm sorry. But don't worry. It's now living comfortably in my belly.  

Mila thought it was all a bit much. She lay there in the living room and quietly judged me.

Are you sure you need that cookie AND the brownie? 

The Hub has been so wonderful the past few months. I've been less than helpful around the house since I'm so consumed in my studies. He's been a huge help and so supportive. He recently tackled this project and it looks fabulous:

Behold, family photos along our stairwell

I know, you can't really see the pictures, but trust me, they are treasured family photos that have been sitting in a drawer for the past several months. They finally made it onto the walls thanks to my wonderful Hub. 

In closing, here's a video that has brought me much joy this week. I unapologetically love Justin Timberlake. And his new glasses.
