Scary Movies

 Last weekend the hubby and I went to the movies and watched Chernobyl Diaries. Let me just tell you, I hate scary movies! It’s not that I get super scared while I’m watching them; it’s that I’m scared for a week after. I’m a big scaredy cat as it is (I don’t even answer the door when I’m home alone) and when you throw in a scary movie with crazy murderers, there is no way I’m going to stay calm. Every little noise I hear is the murderer from the movie coming to find me and kill me. Although I have to say, Chernobyl Diaries wasn’t as scary for me because it’s about zombies and I don’t think that zombies will come after me…but you never know 😉

Dog Walks

 Now that the weather is nice, I started taking my dogs for a walk every morning. And let me tell you, I am so sore! I’ve worked muscles I didn’t even know I had. There is some side butt muscle that now hurts when I walk. It’s not like I am completely out of shape. I workout five times a week for at least an hour. But that didn’t prepare me for a 70lb lab and 63lb bulldog pulling on me the entire walk. The neighbors just chuckle at the site of two dogs pulling me along. And they often comment that it looks more like the dogs are taking me for a walk than me talking the dogs for a walk.

We live by a bunch of vineyards with a canal running through so I thought I could walk there and let the dogs run around. That way, they wouldn’t pull as hard on the way back. And although it was a good thought, it didn’t quit work. The bulldog, Tugg, was worn out but our lab, Skip, still had plenty of energy to pull me all the way home. And still I will get up and do it all again tomorrow because the doggies just love there walks. I mean, how could you say no to these faces?

Let me introduce you to my new favorite necklace. I got this necklace about a week ago and can’t quit wearing it. I love it! I think a pop of neon yellow adds a fun touch to just about any outfit.

Also, this might be my favorite blazer. The only reason  I say “might” is because I’m also really loving this blue blazer too and of course the lace blazer I featured in my last post. Basically, all blazers are my favorite. You really can’t have too many blazers. It’s just not possible.

When I saw Olivia Palermo in her lace blazer, I fell in love! (Of course, when do I not love her outfits). So when I saw the lace blazer I’m wearing, I knew I had to get it for my store. This blazer is lightweight and perfect for spring and summer. Plus, the color goes with everything. I have so many outfits planned for it.
