Look a-likes.

A Mommas Desires and Pacifiers
So- I have never, ever really checked out what celeb I look like, but have been totally cracking up at some of the look a-likes that have popped up. Shizz is funny! 
Seriously, I look like Anne Hathaway? I don't see it...um, she weighs about three thousand pounds less than me and has fabulous eyebrows. Maybe it's the dark eyes? Or our teeth? Perhaps. 
Josie Maran? WTH is that? I don't have a clue.
Mostly, I have been told I look like Andy McDowell...only because of the hair and a few other older celebs. I guess I look old? ha.
I will take looking like any of these, but I totally don't see it.

AND for E- Hugo Weaving? Mike Myers? E does kind of look like that when he laughs. I kid.

No doubt his twin is either:
But of course, E's baby blues and complexion cannot be matched! :)

Back in the neighborhood.

We had a blast in San Diego and glad we only had a two day-at-the-office work week. I did work a couple of days whilst in San Diego, but I cannot complain at all since we had a lot of free time to do what we wanted and it was paid for by my company.
We absolutely love San Diego, but absolutely hate the price of food and alcohol! It's an expensive place to visit and I cannot imagine having to live there and pay those prices. It's a beautiful city that is filled with lots of adorable dogs too. I swear, everyone has at least one dog and most likely more than one. One really ugly thing about San Diego are the homeless. I am not trying to be rude or mean, but the city really needs to do something about it. These people squat everywhere and have their belongings strapped to a tree all throughout the city. At 715 at night, we walked past a man who was peeing on a tree!!! Some parts of the city smell like pee and I am sure it's because of men like this as well as the animal population. There was a lady that took a shizz on the sidewalk next to our hotel, Hotel Indigo which is really nice, as well. It seems to me they have a serious problem with this and allow a little too much...I digress.
We ate some delicious food! E played a couple of golf courses to include Torrey Pines. We visited the beaches of Del Mar, La Jolla and Coranado. We walked the entire city to Little Italy. Received a massage. Drank drinks. Slept through the night (rare occurrence). I worked (have to throw that in there). All in All had we had a nice little getaway to refresh our bodies!

Loving and Living.

Happy Wednesday! I can't believe it's already the middle of the week...time really does fly. I was woken up this morning with, "Babe, Kelly is having her baby." Wait- what? I listened to my voicemail that we received at 12:30am last night. I have never jumped out of bed so early in such a rush in my life, haha.
I am loving that my sweet best friend and husband will be welcoming their first baby into the world today! (Let's not forget, I will get to hold a new born!)
I am loving that we are going to San Diego! E needs a little vacation away from the store and I have to go for work, so it's a win-win. 
I am loving that E will get to play a legendary golf course- Torrey Pines while we are there. Second to loving me is golf! He loves the game. :)
I am loving that the Masters is starting on Thursday. I love Tiger Woods, so I am rooting for him to win this year! He definitely is on fire so the chances are endless.
I am loving the temperature change today and we have a beautiful forecast the rest of the week. We have a dog walk event on Saturday, so we need perfect weather! All SUNNY SKIES, please.

Oh, Happy Day!

Book Swap.

I joined the book swap fun that Blonde Undercover Blonde put together a few weeks ago. 
She paired me with Marina who is an amazing make-up artist and has a fabulous blog that covers all things make-up and nail polish.
When we first swapped emails, we decided to use an Amazon wish list to let each other know what type of books we prefer to read in our spare time. We had similar lists and had a few of the same exact books. I bought her a book and vice-versa.
We bought the same one! It's such a fun, easy-to-read book that will make you smile, giggle and fall in love. I love how Kinsella writes her novels- Go buy it!
I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!
Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading his messages and wading into his personal life.
What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other’s lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents . . . she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.

7 years and counting.

7 years ago I married my best friend. 
We wed at a Southern Baptist Church in the late evening. Our colors were pale pink and green with hints of ivory. My girls wore long dresses, the groomsmen wore tails, our moms wore long gowns and our dads matched the groomsmen. The church was filled with tons of people. Flowers adorned the pews as well as the floor we stood to recite our vows. I remember walking into the room prior to the trumpet playing and one of E's best friends saying, "wow- you look beautiful." I remember- my dad asking me if I was okay. I remember moving my vail from the back to the front to cover my face. I was almost an emotional basket case. The doors opened and the trumpet began to play. I think I walked too fast, but my dad remembers walking slow. I just thought- get me to the end of this long aisle. I couldn't focus on anyone because I didn't want to cry my eyes out. When we reached the alter, my dad uncovered my face by moving my veil. We had a family prayer and the wedding ceremony began. Our vows were the typical vows, but the message our pastor gave was one that so many had never heard. Still to this day, people say to my mom they remember his words so much and how it was an intimate ceremony that filled the church with love. 
That's how I feel about E. My heart abounds and is full of love for my best friend like no other. 
Happy Anniversary, Eric!
