My So-Called Instagram Life

I haven't done a post like this in a while, and my iPhone runneth over.  So without further ado...

Strawberry Chocolate cupcake from the famous Miette bakery in the city.  It was fantastic.

My newest cookbook purchase.  I am not a vegetarian, but like to incorporate meatless meals into our diet.  I found this at Costco.

I recently gave my makeup drawer a makeover.  It is now totally organized, and I couldn't love it more.  I found these at The Container Store.  

Husband and I checked out Men In Black 3 in 3D.  We both loved it.  Popcorn mixed with Junior Mints is a movie necessity.

I found this awesome book, Everything Dogs Expect You To Know, at Anthropologie.  It is filled with tips and little stories regarding dog ownership.

Why have one bed when you could take the cushion out and make two beds?  Petunia did this on her own.  She is very particular. 

Husband brought me a bouquet of "just because" flowers.

Essie in e-nuf is e-nuf.

My first peonies of the season.  Sadly, I had to buy these because I can't get mine to bloom.  Any suggestions for what I might be doing wrong?

This potted plant is in front of a friend's house.  I want to try to make one like this for our house.  

A buck my husband and I saw on an after work hike.  

A romantic dinner on the bay at sunset.  I treasure date nights.

I can´t believe your dog´s name is Petunia, haha, I just named a new gadget of mine Petunia (I have a thing for naming stuff :))

Concerning the Peonies, make sure you cut them a little every day - and do so slightly vertical - change the water every day too! Never ice cold, it doesn´t hurt if it´s handwarm.

They will bloom lovely :)

Thanks again for guest posting, I´ll shoot you an emal soon!
