Eye Candy

I'm always kicking myself for not being able to post as regularly as I want (sigh). 

But the truth is I work full time and I have no energy when I get home
& with the holidays around the corner it's not getting any easier!!

So in an effort to give you something....

Here's a look at where I've been and what I've been up to - through the lens of my iphone.

Catalog Christmas

It's officially Christmas time when your mailbox is flooded with holiday themed catalogs!
Even though their excessive - I absolutely love looking through them and seeing their version of the perfectly styled home.  

So how do they create the must have tree? 
Here's just a few...

Eye Candy

Here's what I've been up to lately...

As seen from the iPhone lens:

Stopped to make a wish

I Voted! and the wish came true :)

Celebrated my cousins wedding with some sparkly fun! 

Fell in love with this spindle chair & fabric at Raoul Textiles.

My dream floors!

Watched some Nick Jr. with the Nephew.  
Yep, this is what kids are watching these days. Yikes!

Bought a bolt of this quirky Quadrille fabric for $40!!! I have no idea what I'm going to do with it but I couldn't pass  it up.  This stuff usually runs $102 a yard and there is always a long lead time. Score!

Honeymoon Highlights

The honeymoon is over. 
It was everything I imagined and so much more. 
Honestly one of the best trips of my life. It was everything you would want from a honeymoon - amazing scenery, beautiful weather, friendly people, no real schedule,
just pure relaxation with a little adventure thrown in. 

Here are a few highlights...
(minus the underwater camera shots which is where we spent a lot of our time)

Leaving the island of Moorea...

Our last day we spent a little time on Tahiti:

Honeymoon Fever

After getting married back in May we are finally gearing up for our honeymoon in just 10 days!!!!!
I feel like I've been waiting FOREVER!  
Not only will we be celebrating our marriage but the completion of my husbands first round of nursing school.  I'm so proud of him for embarking on this new career and he definitely deserves this vacay.

We would be happy going anywhere but we are lucky enough to be going to the beautiful island of Moorea in the French Polynesia. It's about 9 miles away from the Tahiti.
And it looks a lil' something like this....

And we will be staying in something like this....

With all this excitement the girl in me is frantically trying to figure out what to pack!  I'm pretty sure I'll just be living in my bikini but if money was no object (and I looked good in anything) I would probably be packing some of this:
