January came and went super quickly, who’s with me? It’s like you think you have a solid grip on your own life and then POOF, a whole month goes by. January is my busiest month as far as work goes, so I consider it a wash in the “2015 resolutions” department. I can’t start my goals on Jan 1, so Feb 2 seems like an OK day for a fresh start. I may even workout, who knows?
Anyway here are a few highlights from January. And then, on to the next.
The weather in LA has been particularly epic lately. Sunny and bright during the day, and then incredible sunsets that turn the whole sky vibrant shades of purple and pink. Everyday I’m thankful that I get to live in this beautiful place (super basic cheese moment, I’m sorry, but seriously).
I tried to get a boss manicure with *wink eyes* and it kind of turned out like a Halloween skeleton face but whatever. You win some, you lose some, ya know? Nail art is always a gamble.
Kyle and I decided to put ourselves on a spending freeze (SUPER HARD, FYI) so that we could start saving for our honeymoon, etc. To celebrate, we went to brunch. That may defeat the purpose, but Little Next Door brunch, come on. Also, Republique brunch. But seriously, spending freeze on everything else.
Lately, when I go out at night, I’ve been sticking with trousers and silk shirts instead of dresses. I’m positive that this is the way to go, you guys. I don’t freeze my bum off and I’m super comfortable. Pretty much the 2 most important things, right? Anyway, I love the J.Crew Minnie pants. I can’t zip mine up all the way, but February goals, remember?
I FINALLY FOUND MY WEDDING DRESS. Sorry for the caps, but it was a loooooong process and I’m so excited! This photo is from the day I picked it out (eeeeee!).
Speaking of the wedding, I’ve been working on a craft for it that’s brought me to every plant nursery in Southern California. I’ll share more on the blog later once it’s all done.
We got a Click & Grow Smart Herb Garden for Christmas and I cannot believe how much the herbs have grown in four weeks. It’s incredible! They were dirt and seed pods when we first got them. Is this what it feels like to be a proud parent?
And finally, I just had my golden birthday (turned 28 on Jan 28th) and it was indeed very golden. Multiple cakes were eaten (and multiple butterscotch pot de cremes from gjelina as well) and lots of celebrating happened. I’m also not wearing kimonos anymore. Thanks to everyone who made it extra special!
February, let’s kick it into gear.
