I promise there is Vegas post to come! I just thought I would share my new favorite jeans (I bought them in both colors!). They look very much like the current elliot ones for a fraction of the cost, thank you very much Target. They are super comfy and seem to go with everything I own. The leopard obsession continues.

Manic Monday

Just discovered this site, Five Words Tell A Story. Amazing and inspiring. This is what gave me some confidence on this Manic Monday.

Marni x H&M

Ok, the amazing collaborations between big box discount stores and insane designers I can never afford needs to stop. I always think, "This is the best one yet." Not the case. Marni for H&M will descend on stores March 8 and I'm trying to decide if it is worth it to fight the crowds at South Coast Plaza. Mind you I loathe SCP and have not stepped foot in there for a good 3 years. It's a maze! But to score a pair of Marni printed skirt, leather top, cuffs and a necklace? Bring it on.

Manic Monday

Had a great little weekend in Vegas with the Husband, didn't even get around to trying out Blogger's mobile app. I tried to take tons of pictures and will get around to a Vegas post soon. But for now, here is a little something for your manic Monday. This really hit me when I saw it on my Mom's Facebook page.

Viva Las Vegas

A cliche headline I know, but Husband and I are on the open road as we speak. We love Vegas, not for the gambling or partying, but the food, lights and shopping! It has also played a big part in our courtship. It's where we first spent some quality time as friends, the place where he first told me he loved me and where he proposed. So here's to a weekend of revisiting old memories and making new ones.

* I will also be testing out Blogger's mobile app and blogging on the go!

Our First Valentine's Day

Although Hubs and I first met our senior year of high school, we did not start dating until college. He asked me out New Years Eve 2004 so our first Valentine's Day came up quick. He planned a beautiful dinner in my parents backyard with tons of candles. We then listened to a cd of love songs he had made for me and exchanged gifts. It was quiet, romantic, and intimate. A day I will never forget and probably one of my favorite Valentine's days. We are going on our sixth year of marriage and we will have many more romantic dinners and dates, but that first one will always be special. Happy Valentine's Day Bobby, I love you.

Manic Monday

Another Manic Monday. Last week was filled with busy-ness, lots of meetings, and new challenges. Even the weekend seemed full of work. This week I'm focusing on positive changes that I have control over and surrendering all to God. On Friday Hubs and I are heading to Vegas. He got me tickets to see Garth Brooks as a Christmas/Valentine's Day gift. I can hardly wait to eat good food, take in all the lights and spend time with my love watching the Bellagio fountain show. Here is the show/song that played when my Hubs proposed. Hope it gets you through this Manic Monday. ;-)

Manic Monday: Can we talk?

I usually try not to wax poetic on this here blog, my fav blogs are always the ones that are short, sweet and loaded with original photos. But on Friday night my husband and I read through Luke 12 and Jesus' teaching on money and possessions really hit me.

22 Then, turning to his disciples, Jesus said, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food to eat or enough clothes to wear. 23 For life is more than food, and your body more than clothing. 24 Look at the ravens. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds!25 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 26 And if worry can’t accomplish a little thing like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things?
 27 “Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 28 And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
 29 “And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things. 30 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs. 31 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.
 32 “So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.
 33 “Sell your possessions and give to those in need. This will store up treasure for you in heaven! And the purses of heaven never get old or develop holes. Your treasure will be safe; no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it. 34 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

Since the new year, I have been consumed by everyday life. Keeping my new years resolutions has been difficult but now I realize why. I haven't given them to God. I tried to do them on my own without focusing on the Kingdom. So in the spirit of honesty and transparency, I recommit myself to seeking the Kingdom of God above all else. I hope that by this post there will be some degree of accountability. I will still do posts on good times, fashion finds, and great design but with a heart focused on the Kingdom and strength that only comes from our Lord. So here is to a fresh start and new perspective! (and a little inspiration for your manic Monday ;)

Jason Wu for Target!

Just one short day until Jason Wu for Target! SO EXCITED. I've become kinda a crazy collector of designers for Target. I've snagged everything from Alice Temperley of London, William Rast, Jean Paul Gaultier and of course Missoni. I'll be there at 8:00 AM sharp tomorrow. Here are a few of the looks/favorites I've already scoped out, how to decide. Also, I've include a little link to H&M's next collab. I've been a bit disappointed with theirs in the past both in price and looks, but this one might to change my mind. How could it not with Sofia Coppola directing and those cuff bracelets?

Love me some Instagram

I think most iPhone users I know have become obsessed with Instagram. Here is my little ode to this ultra fab app. It turns mediocre creatives into edgy photographers (in general). I recently discovered this darling blog, Fat Mum Slim and the January photo-a-day challenge, which I was too late for. But, joy of joys there is a February one and I'm going for it. Check me out on Instagram @jennyklein.
