If Only

Can you say "CUTE!" This dress is on Modcloth and costs more than I am willing to pay but it is so adorable. And I am loving this shoe by Marc Jacobs.

Baby Dreams

Last week I got in on a little Bunco action with some ladies from the ward and around the area. Maybe there is something in the water here but the women in my ward are baby making machines! Good for them, but I am not ready for that yet and I definitely feel like the odd one out. There was so much talk about babies while we played Bunco that I ended up having a nightmare that I had unexpectedly gotten pregnant! I awoke from my dream feeling panicked and confused, but rest assured, there is no bun in this oven.

I like babies and I am excited to have a family, someday. For now, I just like thinking about what I will name my kids. This site is full of interesting names so check it out.

I Am Loving...

The John Adams mini-series and the TV show, Pushing Daisies.

I recently finished listening/reading Johns Adams by David McCullough and I heard such great reviews about this mini-series so I decided to invest some time into watching it. It is great! Although I wasn't totally convinced of the love between Abigail and John that was so emphasized in the book, I still thought it was great and would recommend it to others.

Pushing Daisies was scheduled to air last year but got postponed due to the writer's strike. I just started watching and I am loving it. There is an abundance of crime/mystery/suspense shows out there but this is an uplifting quirky version that is quite unique. If you haven't seen it you should try it once and maybe read a synopsis beforehand because there is a lot of plot that's been covered in previous episodes.

Favorite Line

Hooray! I winner I agree with. Pretty much every year when I watch the Project Runway finale I am always baffled when they announce the winner. This year I totally agree with the decision. I like Leanne's designs as well as her personality; she is such a goof! At one point in the show I laughed out loud because of what Leanne said. Since People magazine counted it as one of their favorite quotations of the week I thought I would share it too.

After winner Project Runway, Leanne says, "drinks are on this brother!" Haha, I think that is so funny! Way to go Leanne!

Dreaming of a Winter Coat

So it doesn't get very cold here; in fact, it was in the upper 80s yesterday. But I really like winter coats and a girl can dream. If it did get colder here and I was willing to fork out the money then I would consider buying any of these coats.

Every winter I dream of having a cream winter coat; they are so classy! I also love the big buttons coming up the side instead of the center.

I am always drawn to red coats and the double-breasted buttons.

I just love how cute and feminine this coat is.

Then again, I love the boyish quality in this coat. Good thing I don't actually have to choose.

Last weekend my father-in-law came for a visit. Since Chris's family doesn't live nearby it is always a treat to see them. We also had my parents visit on Saturday. I brainstormed a couple ideas that would be parent-friendly and inexpensive so we decided to go to the Getty Villa. If you haven't gone and you are in the area I would highly recommend it. Admission is free but parking is $10/car. It is really beautiful and you can take little tours guided by a docent. Saturday was pretty overcast, which was nice for walking around but not great for taking pictures of the pretty landscape.

There was a kid's room where you can color on vases and trace on paper vases. They asked me to take a survey about the room and all the questions asked "were your kids...entertained, did they learn, etc." That survey and the height of the chairs made me think that room was not meant for people my age. But it was fun!
