The Swan Pump

These are Bella’s Wedding shoes from Twilight – Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Not going to lie…I kinda love these. And yes, they really are for sale by Manolo Blahnik, at Nieman Marcus. I got an email about them. For a mere $1295.00 they can be yours πŸ™‚ I might consider it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful that I have so many things to be grateful for! I just thought I would write some of them down. I know I will forget most of them. First of all obviously my family. It’s hard to live away from them, and I miss them so much! I can’t wait to see them at Christmas, which is another thing I am grateful for…fast and easy transportation so that I can! (and credit card miles so that it’s free). I am thankful for my extended family who invite me to hang out with them and take care of me since mine is so far away. Also for Jake’s family for this same reason. This year I am thankful for Jake’s sister for her amazing meal today. I am thankful for Jake and Kale being a part of my life, they are so great to me and I love them so much. I am thankful for a good job, which allows me to do fun things and shop :). I am thankful for my education and the opportunities that I have had in life. I am thankful for my friends, new and old. I couldn’t ask for better!
Now for my frivolous things…I am thankful for my hairdresser, because she did an amazing job this week, I love it! I’m thankful for TV because I would get so bored at work and at night being home alone. That being said…DVR and Hulu. I am thankful for Nike, because I would have such a hard time working out if it wasn’t for cute workout shoes. Also for shoes in general, because they make getting out of bed and getting dressed worthwhile right? haha jk. But really high heels….I’m barely 5’4″ and that might be a stretch. I am thankful for hairdryers because my hair would look like a disaster without one. Hot water…duh. All wheel drive. Make-up. Target! Adele and Taylor Swift. The internet and my computer. Umm probably the most obvious, my camera. πŸ™‚ haha. DVDs and TV on DVD. Uggs in the winter. Seat heaters in my car. Boats in the summer. Anthropologie and J.Crew. Leggings. Rubios. My cell phone, so I can talk to friends and family whenever I want. A comfy bed to sleep in at night. A country where I am free to be myself and do what I want to do.
I could go on and on.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

Favorites Lately – Mid November

1. Tory Burch Ipad case. Love.

2. Fortune Cookie Necklace by Christina Kober on Etsy.
This is so cute. You can get them multiple ways and you write your own fortune. I’m for sure going to have to get one.

3. Don’t you ever just feel like this?

4. I recently purchased the Marc by Marc Jacobs Katie Bracelet…It’s one of my favorites lately? I like wearing it with my watches.

5. Breaking Dawn…I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of excited to see this. I’m a weirdo. I know the movies aren’t that great, but I loved the books, and I’ve seen all of them so far, so obviously I HAVE to see the last one…even if it’s only part 1.
Heather, I hope you’re ready for girls night πŸ™‚

6. Sam Edleman Scarlett Pump. I want these so bad. So fun. They have them in this color, all black, and pewter so I have to figure out which one will match best with the dresses I’m getting for Vegas. This color is my favorite though.

7. I love this idea. Wallpaper inside of your bookcase…I want to try it.

8. Cat eyes. I need to learn how to do this. I try all the time, but it never looks like this.

9. Fur Jacket by Rachel Zoe. Do I need to say anymore? Ahhh I want. (at Piperlime)

10. We Owned the Night – Lady Antebellum. I can’t get into the car without listening to this song. I love it! Take a listen and see for yourself. P.S. they are coming to SLC in Feb, so get tickets and come with me! They are so good in concert. I saw them at country jam this year.

Me from A to Z

I saw this on another blog and wanted to do it on mine because it seemed fun!

Jake and I

{A} Age – 25, except I don’t really feel like it…
{B} Bed – Currently Queen size; I am in the process of searching for a cute bed frame and a comforter. The one I was going to buy sold out, and if you know me, I have been trying to decide on one for about two years. I just need to get one.
{C} Chores you hate – ummm taking out the trash. I make Jake do it when he comes over now. Other than that I kind of like to clean because I have OCD moments where I just like to do it sometimes.
{D} Dogs – Wish I had one. I have mine at home in California, but I want one here so bad! One day. Or a miniature pig…I LOVE THOSE!

{E} Essential start to your day – hot water. It wakes me up. Actually I listen to the Morning Zoo on the way to work too and it makes me laugh.
{F} Favorite color – Green.
{G} Gold or silver – Gold. Hands down.
{H} Height – 5’3 and a half. But I have been in the habit of wearing heels lately, so a lot of people have thought I’m taller πŸ™‚ I LOVE heels.

{I} Instruments you play – Used to play the piano and the flute, but now that I don’t have them here I probably am not very good anymore.
{J} Job Title – Loan Processor at Flagship Financial, but I’ve been applying to nursing schools and finishing all my pre-reqs.
{K} Kids – None…but Kale (Jake’s little boy) is around so he plays with me a lot until I have some πŸ™‚

{L} Live – in Provo, Utah
{M} Mother’s name – Rosemary
{N} Nickname – KD…I used to have a lot more, but now people mostly just call me that.
{O} Overnight hospital stays – I’ve never had to stay overnight. I would have had to when I was living in Hawaii, but my mom wouldn’t let me stay there, because it was too ghetto so she took me to the hotel and took care of me instead for a week.
{P} Pet Peeves – People who look like they should be on Jersey Shore, or think it would be cool to be on Jersey Shore, Moms who drop pacifiers on the floor then lick them off and stick them back in the babys mouth (like its clean now?), when moms put their kids on leashes, nail biting (which I do and I’m trying to stop!), spitting…I have more.
{Q} Quote from a film – That’s hard, I could say anything from Mean Girls, Wedding Crashers, or any movie with Vince Vaughan in it, But I love this quote from Breakfast at Tiffanys –
“You mustn’t give your heart to a wild thing. The more you do, the stronger they get, until they’re strong enough to run into the woods, or fly into a tree. And then to a higher tree, and then to the sky” – Holly Golightly

{R} Right or left handed – Right
{S} Siblings – I’m the oldest of three and the only girl. Adam (22) Taylor(16)

{T} Time you wake up – Around 7:30 or 8, which no matter how many days in a row I wake up at that time, I still can’t get used to it. I still think it’s early. I’m a night person.
{U} Underwear- Hmmm personal are we? Depends…During the day or with jeans or something I probably wear a lacey thong from V Sec or Gap Body, but I sleep in boy shorts and wear those when I’m being comfy.
{V} Vegetable you hate- I actually like veggies. I even like brussels sprouts. Im sure there is something I don’t like, but I can’t really think of anything at the moment.
{W} What makes you run late – Usually trying to finish my hair because Jake is getting mad at me because I want to curl it, but mostly trying to decide what to wear. I always have good ideas of what I want, but them I try it on and I hate it. Then I just want to go shopping.
{X} X-rays you’ve had- my wrist, I broke it when I feel off a bunk bed two days before third grade started.
{Y} Yummy food you make- Ah I’ve been trying to learn to cook more, but I think my artichoke dip is pretty freaking good…and my cheesecake.
{Z} Zoo animal – Tigers, Giraffes, and Pengiuns…I always wanted a pet penguin because I figured if they lived at the zoo in a hot place they could live at my house. Plus the babies are so cute!

Favorites Lately – Early November

1. Hot Chai Tea from Nordstrom Cafe…so tasty. I might have to get it everyday.

2. I love the number of mirrors on this wall. I would love to do something like this in a room.

3. I want to learn how to make this. You’re supposed to make it out of pages from an old book. But I think it would be cute to make a couple and then spray paint them different colors depending on what month/holiday you want to hang it up for. Gold would be cute.

4. Fun party shoes!

5. I like this little polka-dot ipad case from J.Crew…now just to get my ipad…

6. Also from j.crew…now to just get my iphone…yeah I still don’t have one. Geez, I have sprint and they just barely got them ok!

7. I really want to get some of these charms from Anthropologie. I want the K and a 3.

8. I want this outfit.
