Simple Happenings of Life...

*if you can, would you please vote for my look here? you can win the same pair of boots I styled.
*enter my Hat Attack giveaway, you have until November 8.
One of the reasons I blog is because I want to share what I know, whether it is baking, being a doggy momma times two or being a wife. I never want to come across as though I am being fake or my life is so picture perfect because it certainly isn't and I don't ever want to portray that. Whenever I do get the privilege of meeting up with other bloggers, I want to be able to say yah she is the same on her blog as she is in person. 
Today I'd like to share some tidbits of my life recently that don't necessarily deserve a full blog post. 
Fall decorations
a. my glitter decorated fake pumpkin
b. glitter tipped pinecone
c. pinecones as accessories on our wall shelf
d. apple pie from recent apple picking trip

Asian Night Market
a. yes there was a stall selling Gangnam food - don't remember what they sold
b. kimchi quesadilla
c. Kogi - the original food truck that started the food truck craze

Dogs
a. Kip is tired
b. Kip decided he wanted to eat his dinner at the table one evening
c. Kimbia always finds her way on someone's lap, usually mine

Evening to myself - last Thursday when Sean took off to Hawaii - this is what I did
a. headed to Target - purchased She's Pampered by Essie and PSL ice cream
b. let ice cream melt a bit
c. devour delicious ice cream

i never think my life is interesting, so i usually keep it on instagram. when i do share on my blog, i get a lot of "quit writing so much about yourself" comments, so i shorten it!

I like when my husband takes off for a few days, it's definitely an excuse to get ice cream, do nails and watch the movies he would never sit through.

Erica said...

Tania said...

Living in Australia where Halloween is not such a big thing I love to see all the halloween crafting going on and can't help but be a little envious. Perhaps we are adopting it a little more these days as I saw some halloween pumpkins in the supermarket the other day.

Emmett Katherine said...

I'm the same way when it comes to blogging - I hope the way I come across in my blog is true to my personality.

Your doggies are cute :)

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...
