Life Lately: Here's To New Beginnings, Koi Ponds and Doodles.

How your blog sausage is made. My house mate's girlfriend is a real writer (she writes for a newspaper and has a degree and stuff), so her and I like to go and have $6 lattes and try get some writing done. It's kind of a rule, you aren't actually a writer unless you have a MacBook and write in public- it's science. If you are in Newport, you simple MUST grab a Honey Vanilla Latte at Kéan, if you order it in a mug they'll spell your name out in honey if you ask them to. Sidebar: I always ask them to.

After visiting Hayley at work, I had to make a quick stop at one of my favorite places in the whole world, the Koi Pond at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, CA. Since I was a little girl I've loved skipping over the stones and attempting to not fall into the water- are we actually sure that  Koi don't eat people, because I'm still not 100% on that.

At Portola Coffe Lab, Mark enjoys being a giant and drinking from the tiniest cup ever purely for my amusement.

The white Miniature Schnauzer Alarm Clock. Nigel is just so photogenic.

Hippie grocery shopping at Mother's Market.

Two of my prom girls. So much fun to have a small group over at the house for a prom make-up and hair sesh. Oh! to be 18 again.

Finally got a proper manicure, loving this pale cool pink.

Saturday night socializing with Hayley, Julie and Carrie at Wine Lab in Costa Mesa. I highly recommend anything from Henry Ostini Vineyards- the Hitching Post Cork Dancer Pinot Noir is the red wine that made me love red wines. I just can't do the white wine, it cracks me out. I end up unable to sleep, wanting to clean my house and take apart and put back together electronics. Red wine does make me feel sexy and sleepy, so it's a nice way to spend a mellow evening.

DOODLES! I don't know what kind these are (maybe Goldendoodles?), but they looked like Muppets and I wanted to take them home. I'm not usually a fan of big dogs, but when they look like Fraggles and demand tummy rubs, exceptions can be made.
