Desert Scene

*taking a break & admiring the wind tunnels at Split Mountain*

THIS is where I spent my weekend - Enjoying the beautiful desert scenery while camping out with great friends. I just got home and am catching up on life, but more pictures will soon follow.

Hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend also!

From my needles: DIY Knit Bench

This is something that I actually finished quite some time ago. It's no secret I'm obsessed with knit furniture, so I came up with the idea of knitting a tweed-like bench to add to my etsy shop (it's not in my shop yet, still figuring out shipping methods/options). This bench turned out even more beautiful than I had imagined. I'm completely and utterly in love with it (and so is Dan) - so much so that I am making a longer 6 foot version (this bench here is 4 feet long) in different colors for our dining room. I'm a big fan of the rustic family-style dining look, and with the beautiful antiqued (i.e. passed down from generations) table we have from Dan's great-great something-or-other it should be a winning combination. Very excited to start my new project.

My Valentine

*after our 53 mile Valentine's ride*

When asked what I wanted to do for Valentine's Day, I told my husband that I wanted to ride a 53 mile out-and-back beach ride (and of course have an excellent seafood dinner while sharing a bottle of wine!). Sometimes it amazes me that he goes along with my hair-brained ideas (it's not like we've every ridden anything close to that in one day before, I just figured we could handle it), but he did, and I'm so glad because it was so much fun. We bike 26.5 miles from Yorba Linda park to Huntington Beach and found a nice little spot to grab a beer and have lunch before heading back. Although this might not be the typical Valentine's, it's very us, and I wouldn't have changed a minute of the weekend.

Hope you all enjoyed your Valentine's too!

Spring N Boots

*BCBG boots & Forever 21 dress*

As mentioned in my post yesterday, I'm just craving for it to be Spring already. Flouncy florals, lighter-than-air blouses & frilly happy dresses - they are all screaming for me to wear them right now. So yesterday I caved in. I wore aflouncy floral dress with some little green suede boots - I figured it was a happy medium between the Winter and Spring. =)

My favorite polishes for Spring

When it comes to nail polish, I'm an OPI addict. I love their colors (especially the matte ones) and I think the quality of the polish is excellent. During the past year I've sported insane bright colors during the Summer and dark moody tones for Fall/Winter (still one of my all time favorites is "You Don't Know Jacques" - it's my go-to color when I don't know what else to wear). I have about 12 different OPI bottles right now, but I can tell I'm in the mood for Spring because I'm really into soft, muted, blushes, tans, and creamy colors right now. Out of my little nail polish drawer, here are my top 5 colors I'm loving (in order from left-to-right, as shown above):

You Don't Know Jacques (like I said, I just love this color and I wear it year-round)
Tickle Me Francy
Grand Canyon Sunset (what I'm currently wearing this week)
Dulce de Leche
San Tan-tonio (part of OPI's newest Spring/Summer 2011 line of Texas-inspired polishes)

Got any favorites of your own that you just can't stop wearing?
