My Weekend According To My iPhone

Busy, busy, busy!  Drinks at Blackbird, brunch at Firestone, dinner at Miyagis, two dozen cupcakes and one special baby shower.  That’s my weekend in a nutshell.  It’s hard to believe I packed that all in just over 48 hours, but that’s how dedicated I am to my strict wine schedule.  At least one bottle a weekend!

My Weekend According To My iPhone

Basically these were the only two faces I saw this weekend.  I finally was able to meet little Miss Avery who just turned a month old and of course Mister Noni is in my face all day, everyday.  What else can you do when it’s sunny, but raining outside?  I guess that’s California for ya!

{Feel Good Friday} Hang Forever

Mr. Goddard’s Big Event is fast approaching and this year’s entertainment is totally smokin’.  Looks, vocals.. Ivy Levan is the total package!  Even Letterman thinks so - she performed with Sting a couple weeks ago on the late night show.  Her dress was absolutely stunning so I’m looking forward to seeing what she wears at the Crest in April.  Check out her YouTube page, download her music - Ivy is coming!

If I Wasn’t Busy Being Awesome

You know when celebrities get asked what they would be doing if they weren’t acting or being famous for their sex tapes?  They give cute answers like veterinarian or solving world hunger…  Today I decided that if someone were to ask me, if you weren’t the greatest admin assistant next to Donna Paulsen - what would you be doing?  My answer would be a hacker.

Just thought you should know, but for now I’m going to try and become as awesome as Donna.

My Weekend According To My iPhone

After taking things slow the last few weeks, I made up for time over the long weekend.  Mr. Goddard and I celebrated Valentine’s Day with a big group dinner at my parent’s house.  I ate my weight in Rice Krispies and drank lots of bubbly.  Three days off makes it harder to go back to work this morning, but thank goodness for a four day week right?  Enjoy your week - I hope it goes by in a flash!

Go Team. Win The Points.

My Weekend According To My iPhone

An extended happy hour with my favorite wine-o Kaila kicked off this weekend.  We drank our way through Hock Farm, Ella and Firestone.  I was feeling celebratory, but I can’t share why just yet…  Celebrate we did!  (Thanks for the ride Mr. Goddard)  Saturday was a day of recovery and pampering with Simone.  Two hours of gossip and catchup over pedicures and manicures.  After all that fun rested and recouped until Sunday evening.  Now it’s back to work for me - I’m not one of you lucky people whose off today and I’m wondering if the next two weeks can possibly top the last.

My Weekend According To My iPhone

It’s been my goal since Christmas to slow down just a tiny bit.  The last two weekends I’ve stuck to the plan, doing mostly nothing with my days off.  That’s why these photos are so boring.  If you’re an imaginative person then picture me, sitting on the couch in yoga pants, drinking lemon drops (and wine!) and watching television.  Oh and I also kinda cleaned the house.  Try not to be jealous!

I hope your weekend was everything you wanted it to be!  Hopefully more exciting than mine. :)

My Weekend According To My iPhone

Shocking that I even took any photos this weekend.  I was asleep most of the weekend, catching up from the month of December.  Not that I’m complaining about being a social butterfly, but sometimes you have to go into hiding and just recharge.  Just like my iPhone, we’re recharged and ready for the next event(s)!

I’m wearing heels and I’m totally accessorized today. Pictures were absolutely necessary. #ootd #bows #bejeweled #asos #forever21 #jessicasimpson

Resolutions Are For Quitters

The month of January is like one long Monday.  I’ll start my diet on Monday.  I’ll go back to the gym on Monday.  Starting Monday I’ll cut back on the wine.  Who really sticks to it? Usually by Monday night I’m halfway into a quart of Baskin Robbin’s mint chip.  Next Monday, I think.  So I’ve never really been into the whole resolutions thing, but this year I need to pull it TOGETHER.  I’ve got a wedding celebration to prepare for and my sister is threatening to “Pippa” me.  She’s got a booty on her so it’s entirely possible!



I’ve decided 2014 is the year for serious resolutions.  Achieve a healthier weight (get skinny), ultimate hotness (hotter than Kendall) and riches - we always need riches.  Easy right?

I’ll start on Monday.

2013 | A Year In Review

I laid in bed last night thinking about my year and this very post.  I know that this blog has really slipped through the cracks and I’m not sure if anyone is even going to read this, but that’s the beauty of the Internet!  I’m gonna do it anyways.

If you’re on Instagram then you’ve probably seen these photo mixes from Flipagram.  I’m OBSESSED.  It’s also a convenient way to show what my year was like for those of you with the shortest attention span.  (No judgement.)  

2013 was a VAST improvement over 2012!  Despite Mr. G’s car accident and then I broke my hand at the end here.. Let me start off by saying that my memory is terrible and as I perused my iPhoto it was like I was experiencing 2012 again for the first time.  My conclusion is that I know how to have a good time!  

I traveled to Lake Tahoe, Vermont, Dillon’s Beach, threw a bridal shower, a private concert by Allen Stone, was in a wedding, baked a shit ton of cupcakes, day drank more than once, started offering printed e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in my Etsy shop and oh… GOT ENGAGED! 

I hope your year was special - full of rainbows and butterflies, but as cliche as it sounds I’m ready for this year.  I can feel change in my blood and i’m ready for whatever 2014 has in store for me.
