Now Channeling: Cuteness

I live and swear by cuteness and bling. Here are some photos from the top of my dresser, which is my happy spot.

My jewelry is my joy!

My new Betsey Johnson bow earrings:)

Spencer and the Heart Shaped Donut

Spencer and I love to share a donut and milk on our little cruises around town. A heart shaped donut! How cute!

The Blue Moose :)

Went to see St. Vincent last night at the Blue Moose. Sadly, the only photos I got were of the moose! Oh well!

Vintage Valentines!

I love the old Valentines we used to give out at school. I remember decorating a shoebox to hold the Valentines and eating more candy than I should have. Oh, Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day, Suckers!

XOXO Love ya always,


I ordered up some caaaa-ute knitted animal thingies from Urban Outfitters when they went waaaay clearance about a month back. I love them:)

Our Bedzzzzzzz

Our old bed frame broke recently and the IKEA mattress we had been sleeping on was aweful! You could feel every spring digging into your back and you never got a restful night's sleep. We decided it was time for an upgrade so Will and I purchased a new Queen Size Lebeda Mattress. A-mazing! I love waking up feeling great and stretching out onto a nice, soft, cushy bed after a hard day's work!

Isn't the bedding sooo cute?! Our bed is definitely retro inspired and Spencer-approved:)

Best Shopping Day, EVER!

Today ruled sooo hard. I had the day off for the first time in a few weeks so a bit of shopping was obviously in need. My first stop was TJ Maxx in Cedar Rapids. Spencer the Dog came along for the ride. I was hoping to find a hot new handbag but came out with some treasures that definitely were not handbags. Oh well, that's how it goes, I guess.

In my cart:
1. Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses - $39
2. Betsey Johnson earrings- $13
3. BCBG silk top- $5
4. Liz Claiborne top in hot pink- $5
5. Liz Claiborne top in blue- $5
6. Bill Blass batwinged gold lame sweater - $13
7. Betsey Johnson 2 pack of tights- $2
8. Givenchy patterned tights- $1
9. Apple Bottoms wool motorcycle jacket- $15

Who knew Liz Claiborne actually made cute stuff? Both tops tie at the neck secretary style and rock my world. And the Bill Blass sweater looks like something Holiday Barbie would wear in 1988 so I had to have it! The BCBG top originally retailed at $150. Some good deals in the cart, if I do say so myself!

And for my little dog:
1. Box of fancy organic doggie biscuits- $4.99
2. Toy that makes crazy electronic noises-$4.

Spencer and I cruised around and ate a donut and drank some milk before heading back to Iowa City. My shopping partner is a Welsh Corgi!!!!!!!

Back in Iowa City, Spencer and I headed to Von Maur (my other little pleasure palace) and I FINALLY got the Dolce Vita booties I have been dreaming about for months now. I would have bought these puppies full price at $130 and would have gotten them 2 weeks ago when they were on sale for $88, but nope, I only paid $32 bucks for those bad boys!!! I am giddy as can be:)

The World's Most Beautiful Dog

My little Spencer-pants is the most photogenic dog in the world. Here we have Spencer taking a moment to pose for a photo while he is looking out the window in our living room. I love the wonderful contrast in these photos and how you can see all of his individual whiskers and fur so nicely. He really is a swell little guy!

I am definitely having these photos printed at Target tomorrow so I can have them framed:)

Dog Days

Today, Spencer cried for an hour after Will left for school. By the time I got up at 7:45, Spencer ran to the door and peed right there on the rug while I was throwing my shoes on to take him out. When we came in, he drank a big gulp of water and then promptly puked it up on the rug. That's alot of clean up before 8 a.m.
