Am I a Runner?

Probably not. Running 2-3 times a week isn't really that legit, but I'm working my way up to it. I have hated running my entire life! I was the girl who barely passed PE. I don't like jogging around, getting sweaty, or ANY sports. The most I've ever run without stopping was 8th grade when we had to do the mile once a week and one time I did the entire thing in a slow jog. Since then I still haven't worked my way back. But I'm trying! My sister has been encouraging me to go running with her since I moved home. She just moved up to school last week, and I've surprised myself by still going, just alone. I can feel myself getting better and better and it getting easier and easier. I know everyone has told me that it gets easier, but for some reason I've never believed them.

I want to run to get in good shape, to be healthy and happy, but also to accomplish something. I know I can keep it up and I look forward to accomplishing some goals with it. If anyone has any tips or stories of how they got to a point where they loved it, I'd love to hear them! (And yes, that is Kourtney Kardashian up there. I think she's cute).

Decor Plans

We're moving in about a week to a little apartment nice and close to school. We can't wait to get settled in! I'm really looking forward to starting over and slowly finding pieces that we LOVE and show our style. I'm planning on thrifting every piece we purchase, so let the hunting begin! These pieces below are just inspiration and ideas for what I have planned. I'm sure I won't be able to find anything exact, but they kind of give an idea of what I'm looking for.

I'll dig a tunnel from my window to yours.

Five years down. I love you to the moon and back.

Lovely Ladies

Some ladies or outfits that inspire me, starting with Emma Stone. I think I need a bathing cap.

Her hair color and cut, sunglasses and outfit.

Is there anyone prettier than Emily Blunt? And remember how she's married to Jim from the Office?

I need more dresses.

Maybe Baby

We're enjoying our last week of 'freedom' before David starts school. We've been spending time in Fullerton looking for an apartment, hanging with my family and we even got to visit our sweet new niece Sadie. Of course, we love her as much as our other nieces and we're so excited for the new addition. I will never complain about new babies entering the family!

It's been a great week. We're looking forward to settling into our own place and our Disneyland passes being unblocked again! We've also been enjoying hanging out with long lost California friends. I need to take more pictures! Oh, and we had a great time shooting a lovely wedding last weekend. I love spending time at the LA temple.

Wish I

We're coming up on our 5th wedding anniversary soon. I was talking with a friend recently, and she echoed my secret idea about having a 'new wedding' every 5 or so years. How fun would it be to be able to do the whole day again? It'd be much less stressful since you'd been through it before- and mighty romantic. I look at wedding ideas every day and swoon over the gorgeous things that are out there now. I wish Pinterest had been around when I was planning my wedding. For now, I'll save ideas for my little sister:)

I love this dress. It's simple, elegant, timeless.

lemons + white flowers. one of my favorite combos.

swirly simple cake.

cornhole! wedding style. we underestimate the power of something FUN for guests to do during a wedding.

pretty burlap + lace pennant.

Beach Trip

David and I hadn't been to the beach in California since were were dating. That's 6+ years ago, people! It was one of my little goals I wanted to accomplish before he started school, so we made a plan for last Saturday. We met Cori at the temple and did a session and then got lunch and headed out to Doheny.

Family met us a little while later and it was Campbell's first time at the beach. She didn't like the water or the wind...Her eyes are closed because there was a gust right when I took this picture. I just think its so funny.

I also got some cute new clog sandals that I can't stop wearing. Who knew I'd love a pair of wooden shoes so.
