My sweater has bunnies on it!!! Best. Sweater. Ever. As soon as I got it I knew I had to wear it with my le bunny bleu flats at some point - perfection. I figured what better time than Easter?? This beautiful full skirt instantly caught my attention too. This is definitely what I'll be wearing on Sunday. And of course I had to don my floral crown again in welcoming Spring, which is part of what Easter is about I'm pretty sure. Oh and the gorgeous little puppy in these pictures? Her name is Peanut and she's my Mom's. I wish I could claim her as all mine but I have to share ;)  She's such a sweet freckled thing. I had to let her join in the photo fun, I mean, she's close enough to a bunny. Definitely just as cute! She sure had fun running free outside as a reward for posing with me.
Well, we'll be heading home from our little trip this weekend and I took lots of pictures to share (of course)! Look out for the pics next week. Hope everyone has a great Easter!!

I'm sad to admit I've had this dress for like 6 months and I'm just now getting around to wearing it for the first time. Do you ever do that? I always wonder how the heck that happens.. I ended up pulling it out for our anniversary dinner last Thursday, so at least after the long wait to be worn it got debuted on a special occasion! We went to a new Indian restaurant that just opened up by us since we're both huge fans of Indian food and it definitely didn't disappoint! We ate until we couldn't eat anymore and then went home and watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall and ate ice cream in bed. Haha, we're so old. But we figured we'd keep it low-key since our trip this week is suppose to be for our anniversary. I'm loving that all the flowers on the trees are in bloom right now! There's so many around our neighborhood so I'll warn you now they might be popping up in a lot more of my pictures. This one reminds me of Mulan when her Dad is talking to her about the cherry blossoms. I thought about calling this post "Moulin Rouge" since the dress is red but then it would just get confusing since that's totally not the Mulan I'm talking about. Side note: I was obsessed with Mulan when it came out. I'm pretty sure I had the Barbie and I was definitely Mulan for Halloween that year. I even loved those oriental fans and had a little collection of them and I was thrilled when my dad went on a business trip to China and brought me home a real kimono! Then again I'm sure there's not a Disney Princess I didn't deem my favorite for at least a short time. Now? It's Snow White :)

All Yellow

This post is titled after one of my favorite Coldplay songs. Yellow is one of my favorite colors (it's just such a happy color!) but I have a hard time wearing it with my fair complexion. It washes me out, like bad. Even my own Mother told me she wouldn't dress me in yellow as a baby because it just didn't work out. Oh yellow, why can't we be friends? I can usually get away with more mustard and gold hues and bright yellow in small amounts away from my face but that's about the extent of our friendship. As I'm sure you've discovered I love anything with florals and this dress with it's beautiful yellow flower detail got me hooked. I think the blush (a color I could be best friends with) makes it work for me and I'm super happy to have a little more yellow in my wardrobe. Now I'm kind of obsessed with the blush & yellow combo for Spring. Could it be any more perfect? Hope your Monday is off to a good start. I'm soaking up some sun in Zion's National Park today! Lots of fun hikes, exploring and jeeping for us this week and I couldn't be more happy for a little break from everyday life. It's always a good thing :)

Anniversary Pt. 2

Today it's been four years since I promised to share my life and eternity with this beautiful blue-eyed boy :) I get to wake up to a mess of perfect curls covering a sleepy face of freckles every morning! (Speaking of which, I'm a little jealous. I've wanted freckles forever! I think they're the most beautiful thing.) It's also been exactly six years that we've been together - since we got married on our dating anniversary - we're just so cheesy cute like that. It's weird how time flies by, I feel like we're still newlyweds, but at the same time I can't remember life without him there. We can now say we've spent a fourth of our lives together! Kinda cool. And I'm still just as head over heels for him as I was in the start, maybe even more. It's amazing how you can love someone more and more with each day when you didn't even think your love had room to grow! But he's super easy to love! Besides being incredibly handsome ;) he's also the sweetest, most laid back, easygoing and genuinely happy person I've ever met. He tells me he loves me constantly, rubs my back every night, tells me I'm the most beautiful girl in the world, and he helps me not take life too seriously. He's ALWAYS making me laugh and he knows just how to calm me down when I'm anxious or cheer me up when I'm sad. We kind of live by that phrase "You keep me safe, I'll keep you wild". I push him to go on adventures and do crazy things like sky diving and he keeps me grounded. He keeps me sane. My weaknesses are his strengths, he literally completes me. I wouldn't change a thing about him or our relationship, it's honestly the most perfect and whole thing in this life. Sorry for getting mushy, but you should really try marrying your soul mate, it's the best thing I've ever done. Happy Anniversary to my one and only!! I love you more than any person could love another!

Fun fact: Ethan is also a dog and baby MAGNET. Even they're attracted to his kindheartedness! My favorite story is when we were walking through the grocery store behind a cart with a toddler in it and as we walked past he reached his arms up towards Ethan like he wanted him to pick him up and said "that guy!" with a huge smile on his face. Hahaha, gets me every time!
