New Kitchen

This little table and chairs would be so cute in our apartment!  Our dining room table and chairs are bit too clunky for our space!  I can imagine myself sitting here drinking my coffee while people watching from my window!!  Maybe I need to do a little Craig's List shopping!

Circus Stripes

I'm totally digging this sweater!  Of course it's Anthropologie!

Keep It Away From Gypsy

Omar has been talking about replacing his wallet!  This is what he needs!  It holds your iPhone (with earphone access) and $$$!

UPDATE:  It's confirmed!  Omar wants.

Eye Spy

Notice anything different?

Please ignore the horrible sore on my lip.  I have no idea what that is about...

January 16, 2010.  Lisa & Stephen's Wedding

Happy Birthday to me!

I thought I would share a few pictures from yesterday!

My friend, Tina, brought me cupcakes to work.  Little did she know that my usual birthday ritual is pink Little Debbie cakes (which for some reason have been really hard to find!)  These reminded me a lot of those little heart shaped cakes!

Last night Omar took me out to dinner at A16 and it was so yummy!  This was right before we left for the restaurant.  I wish Omar would have told me I had lipstick on my teeth!

Drum roll please!  The Tory Burch shoes that I ended up with!
Happy Friday!  Hope you have a great weekend!  Omar and I are Tahoe bound!

Finally - my own!

OMAR BOUGHT ME TORY BURCH SHOES FOR MY BIRTHDAY!  Can you tell I'm excited?  This is the pair he presented me....I love them, but I have a something a little different in mind, so today at lunch we are going to pick them out!  I'm so excited!

I have a crush!  They come in black, blue, cream, lime green, orange, pastel blue, pastel green, pink, red and silver!
Check them out here
Omar, I'm serious about this!  I'm thinking red!!

The SMEG fridge is designed to look like a vintage 50's icebox, but it really is state of the art!

Eat your veggies

I just walked down to the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building.  Not much was happening, but I got a couple of nice shots for my homework assignment!

No more clutter!!

Dear Omar, 
Instead of turning our living room into your home office, maybe we should try something like this.  It's from Ikea!

Look how it all disappears by just closing it up!  I'm in LoVe!

I heart the sun!

It was such a pretty weekend!  It's amazing what a little sunshine can do for your spirit!
And the cherry blossom trees are blooming!  Hurry, Spring!

(yes, I am going through a lot of different emotions today)

I'm so excited - tonight my friend, Tina, and I are going to try out the new pilates studio that opened up a block away from my house!  It's the pilates where you use machines...I know - fancy!  First class is free!  And if you dig it, you can do unlimited pilates and yoga for a month for $100!  I'm really hoping I like it.  I need a change in my workout routine!  This would be nice to supplement with my running that Omar and I supposed to start doing! 

My goal:

Ha!!  Happy Friday!  2.5 hours and I'm out of here.

UPDATE:  Pilates was just okay.  I'm not doing the monthly membership. 




I'm feeling anxious. 

I had my first photography class on Wednesday, and left with six homework assignments (about 61 pictures)!  And all these pictures need to be taken in Manual mode and outdoors in the's supposed to rain all day on Saturday

I don't think it would be a problem to get all the homework done on Sunday and on my lunch breaks Monday through Wednesday - if I understood how to use the manual mode!  It's going to take some time to figure out my F/stops and shutter speed!  Everything I've shot so far has been junk.  I think my shutter speed is too low, but my camera is saying that's what it needs to be at for the proper exposture.  Ugh!!! 

This is really hard.  I am a perfectionist and this is making me anxious.  I can't stop thinking about the pictures I need to be taking! 

Can I quit?  No - I haven't even started and its going to be sunny on Sunday!

I wish I drank more tea.  If I did, I think I would need a submarine tea infuser.

One day

How awesome is the twig chandelier?!  Love.
I love the whole room - period.
Here's to my future beach cottage.


Are you a fan of TOMS?  I wasn't...until I saw these actually being worn!  They looked super cute!
I wear my gold flats too often, so maybe in red???

New Shoes

Check out my new handmade shoes from India!  My friend, Rajdeep, brought them back for me as a gift!
You know what is cool about the shoes - there is no left foot/right foot.  They are made of leather so they will just mold to me feet!

January 2010 books

6 books in a month - looks like I had a lot of free time.  Too bad I only enjoyed 3 of the 6!

Over the weekend I finished Along for the Ride  and The Piano Teacher.  I gave both of these books 4 of 5 stars!  Now I'm on to The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Clayton. It's a slow start, but hopefully it will improve!

More pictures from our relaxing weekend in San Diego!  These were taken on Saturday and Sunday! 

Weekend Recap - Part #1

Omar and I went to San Diego this weekend to visit with Missy and James, and to meet baby Jack!  We had such a great time!  Baby Jack was so sweet and such a good boy!!! 
Here are some of my favorites pictures from Friday!
