We've Already Been Tricked + Last Minute Costume

Ron and I have already been tricked today by no other than Chippy, the poop and pee culprit! I woke up with number 2 by the bedroom door and number 1 next to it. I guess no more rawhide for the little monster.

On the brighter side, I have a last minute costume idea if you are still on the hunt for a good costume. All you need is a chambray top, a red bandana, hairpins and red lipstick. Now who doesn't have that at home? Well, maybe the red bandana is not for everyone but you can always cut a triangle from that old red T-shirt you have not worn for years at the bottom of your closet, right? Presenting, Rosie the Riveter!


I know, I am missing the hand holding the sleeve but I was holding the "trick" in a bag in my other hand so I can take it out. Haha! Anyway, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! :D

Pasadena Playhouse District

Here's an area we definitely want to explore more...particularly the restaurants around it. #foodieforlife! Hahaha! After lunch at Urth Caffe, we walked around the block (quite literally) and walked by some places that I would love to try.
We will most likely be back. :)

A Very California Autumn
Top: Foreign Exchange. Kimono: Marshalls. Bag: F21. Shoes: Tieks. Shorts: Borrowed nearly a decade ago (I was about 17 or 18) from one of my best friends from high school. LOL
This day was a let down--weatherwise. I thought it would be colder but once you cross the street from where we stood, my kimono had to be off. I can't wait until the wet weather they were talking about in the news comes. I am having pretty serious weather envy.

5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

via 1 2 3 4 5

The first thing that comes to mind right now is the updated look of my blog but nah, let's stick with other things I really can't get enough of.

Let's start with our bed. We got it a month ago, had buyer’s remorse because we thought it was giving us backaches, kept sleeping in it, now it’s so hard to get out of it. The backache? I think we got it from carrying the bed from the truck to the patio, up to the bedroom. I mean, that's a pretty rough task.

My Fitbit. I didn’t think I would love it this much! Before this turns into a review, let me just tell you my most favorite thing about it: it keeps me on track with how active I am. It reminded me that walking around the mall is a best good way to reach my goal of ten thousand steps. Also, thanks love for the surprise!

My Nike Free 3.0 v4 running shoes. They’re not only cute, they’re also so comfy. Whenever I know that Ron and I will be walking a lot in a day, I make sure to wear them but of course, I run in them, too!

Our 50mm f1.8 Lens. Seriously. This thing is super. As an amateur, I feel like this took me to a new different level--like amateur level 2. Haha! Kidding aside though, the beautiful images that come out of it are amazing.

Hoodies and cardigans. I have so many of them; you’d think you’re not looking at a closet of a person living in Los Angeles. In my defense, my office is one cold box so I still get to wear them. ;)

Taking Pictures Just Got More Fun

I ordered this bad ass of a toy last week and got it one business day ahead than scheduled. I came home on Friday, fulfilled but tired from working overtime and saw the little lens box waiting for me on the ottoman. In an instant, I forgot I was exhausted and made the dogs go to the patio to use what's left of the natural light at 6pm. Here are two of my faves where I captured the faces we see every time at least one of us comes home. :)

Got the lens from eBay for 20% off than suggested retail price, click here if you're interested.
