a few weekend thoughts

I forgot to mention that Dan surprised me with a night out on the town to fine dine at a new restaurant that just opened near us, True Food Kitchen for our anniversary.
It was just my kind of place, delicious, healthy, locally grown foods, and innovative design setting.
Sit outside and order Andy's Elixir and the hummus app for starters!
You must try, they have a few different locations!

Also, I can not wait to tune into Secrets From a Stylist on Sunday! I came across Emily's blog right before she announced she was going to be on Design Star, it was so fun to watch the shows and read along with her weekly recaps. I was totally rooting for her to win, and she did!
HGTV is lucky to have a her, I think she is going to bring a whole new group of viewers to their network. I can't wait.

And lastly, I can't stop dreaming of Fall! Am I alone in this? Fall is by far my favorite season, and I want the weather, clothes, and yummy scented candles to be here already!
And we all know how much I love my thigh highs!

Have a great weekend!

rolling greens

images from the West Hollywood location

I've been interning at Rolling Greens this quarter.
(run don't walk!)
I love being a part of such an amazing store.
The space is very inspiring, innovative, and beautiful.

I have been working on the visuals,
and I thought I'd share some of my recent images.
You need to put Rolling Greens on your must see list.
(I literally want every single thing in the store.)

We had just gotten back from a week away with family.
There is nothing I love more than a easy day at home with my girl.
There was so much unpacking, laundry and cleaning to do,
not to mention school assignments ...
So we took a break and presley created her first masterpiece with real paints.
I set it all up right before nap time, so she could paint in her diaper, head straight to the bath, and take a nap while it dried.
This was one of my favorite afternoons.
I look forward to many more art crafts with my girl.

Look at that technique!

Presley's finished product,
I couldn't love it more!

All the talk about Anthropologie's new wedding line!
Said to debut in Spring 2011, with dresses ranging from $750 - $5,000.
I can only imagine what they will come up with!
Oh, and the best new to me (since I already had a wedding)
They are opening bridal stores!
Yes please... there's nothing I like more than a store with some good visuals.
I can not wait.

And ... a big thank you for all the sweet comments on our anniversary!
we were on a family reunion vaca so we were not able to celebrate,
but you all still made it feel special.
thank you thank you thank you

San Francisco Ferry Building

Every time we are in San Francisco we talk about moving there.
The Ferry Building Marketplace alone makes me want to stay in the city for good!
I love this place, all the different shops and tasty treats.
And not to mention Il Cane Rosso, seriously good food.
I love restaurants like that. Small menu, locally grown food, and everything is perfected.
You must try it the next time you are in the city!
(we've only been there for breakfast and lunch, but I'm sure dinner is just as good!)

Six years today
I'v been married to my main squeeze.
I couldn't ask for anything better in a partner,
thank you for all your love, support, patience, funny jokes,
and for those good looks!
love you.

I roll at our engagements.
We look so young.

I love this photo only because our photographer caught how happy I was on our big day.
and maybe, because I want my waist back...

picnic at the beach

One of our favorite things to do 
is have a dinner picnic at the beach
all summer long!
I have been loving this recipe lately, 
and thought I'd share.
(it is perfect for a picnic - super easy to pack and prep)

Quarter a head of iceberg lettuce (I've also tried butter lettuce and it was great), 
and top with a zesty blue cheese vinaigrette.

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 small shallot, finely chopped
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (1 ounce)
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 head iceberg lettuce, quartered into wedges

1. Whisk together vinegar, shallot, and mustard.  Pour in oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until emulsified.  Whisk in half the blue cheese.  Season with salt.
2.  Arrange lettuce wedges on a platter.  Drizzle with vinaigrette.  Sprinkle with remaining blue cheese, and season with pepper.
Note:  I added chopped baby heirloom tomatoes and it was delish!
