Menswear Monday

December 30, 2013



Happy Menswear Monday! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Can we NOT talk about how fast the Christmas vacation is flying by? Woof. I’m doing my best to soak up what’s left of it. I’m not sure how successful I’m being with that, but here’s to trying eh?

In other news, Husband and I have been trying to push our comfort zone a little in the colors and patterns department (and by ‘our’ comfort zone I mean his), because life is just too short not to, amiright? Banana Republic had a slew of sweaters on sale in fun, bold colors, so I got husband a handful of them for Christmas. He wasn’t even mad about this purple number, and it seemed like a great match for this handsome navy polka dot button-up. Husband was a little skeptical of the combo at first, but I think it won him over as soon as he put it on. Just goes to show – it’s worth it to try new things!

 But what do you guys think? Guys – would you rock a deep purple sweater like this one? Ladies – would your man go for this combo? What say ye?

Killer Photographer

December 27, 2013



I wanted to introduce you to an amaze-balls Bay area photographer, because if there’s one thing we all need in our life it’s a great picture-snapper for those important shoots in our lives, amiright? Bonus points if they don’t cost an arm and a leg! Meet Ms. Kirsten Wiemer of KNW Photography. I met Kirsten several months ago when she took our baby announcement pictures and she’s been my go-to gal for pics ever since. She took our Christmas card pictures below and we absolutely loved them. If you live in the Bay area, you definitely need to hire this gal for your next family photo session or other photo shoot. She’s talented, fun to work with, and I can almost guarantee you won’t find a photog with better rates than this girl. Thank you Kirsten for these lovely holiday pics of husband and I! Turns out we love you long time.

For more info on KNW Photography’s rates and availability, contact Kirsten ( and/or visit her website. Hope you had a beautiful Christmas and enjoy the rest of the holidays! Trying to soak them up over here – they always go waaaaay too fast. xoxo!

It’s Christmas Eve!

December 24, 2013



Wishing you a very happy Christmas Eve! Wore this festive frock to church last Sunday and then to the Oakland Temple. I couldn’t resist busting out red, gold, and hints of fur. Woot!

We’re on our way into the city to enjoy the San Francisco festivities. Then it’s home to finish WRAPPING! I’m real on top of things this year. And by this year I mean every year.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
