Ponies & Puppies

My daily routine consists of taking this little one on a walk. Josie (my 1 year old rescue mut) is spunky and curious and happy to be alive! As funny as it sounds she really inspires me! She is always glad to greet me and even when I have to discipline her, she immediately comes to me, gives me a lick, and longs to reconcile her action. I love her pure little puppy heart!

And lately I’ve also been loving pony tails! This is a hair style I haven’t tried since I was quite young, but I’m enjoying how quick and easy it is to pull my hair away from my face on a hot day. Have you rocked a pony lately?

Baby girl is now 22 weeks along, over half way there! She is hiding under this lace peplum top! Lately I’ve been feeling her move a LOT. It’s a bit like someone is blowing bubbles in the pit of my tummy, but I love it! Just knowing she’s in there swimming around is so cool!

For now Josie is happy being my only ‘baby girl’ to cuddle with. Little does she know how soon her little puppy world will be rocked! ;D

Uncommon in the Common

Hello blogging world! I apologize for my absence lately. Along with traveling and being a bit under the weather, my mom was in the hospital this last week. Needless to say, sometimes life is bit crazy! Thankfully my mom is much better and home all safe and sound.

iconemesis-cell-phone-ootd-slouchy-sweater-fleece-leggings-franco-sarto-boots-beauty-and-bows-fashion-blog-1 Let’s talk about our cell phones… Isn’t it funny how we all carry around this little rectangular piece of plastic that feels like our ‘life line’? I know for me my phone is my source of contact to my loved ones, my sense of direction (b/c I was born with NONE), my stress relief, photo taker, time killer, weather alert detector, and much more. With all the amazing things our phones can do, they are pretty standard in our lives these days. iconemesis-cell-phone-ootd-slouchy-sweater-fleece-leggings-franco-sarto-boots-beauty-and-bows-fashion-blog-2 For something we cling to for hours a day, why not cover our phones with something special? Iconemesis has some amazing iPhone cases on their website and the cool part is, every case has artwork by some seriously talented artists. So not only does your phone look adorable, but you are supporting art! Love that! iconemesis-cell-phone-ootd-slouchy-sweater-fleece-leggings-franco-sarto-boots-beauty-and-bows-fashion-blog-3 iconemesis-cell-phone-ootd-slouchy-sweater-fleece-leggings-franco-sarto-boots-beauty-and-bows-fashion-blog-4 And when life is crazy, like when your mom goes to the hospital, you really cling to your phone even tighter. I was happy to have this cute case to brighten my gloomy day this week! iconemesis-cell-phone-ootd-slouchy-sweater-fleece-leggings-franco-sarto-boots-beauty-and-bows-fashion-blog-5
