Spring Cleaning

What a beautiful day it is today! My first class was cancelled due to my professor being sick, so I was able to stay home and take care of Bo, and I am happy to see him eating, drinking water, and easily taking his medicine! I also was able to watch on of my favorite shows; The Nate Berkus Show. Other than that I finished up a mid-term paper that is dues tonight and began thinking about all the spring cleaning that I want to do before we move. Since Carlos sleeps until 3pm I could only surf the web about tips for cleaning and organizing. I came across Martha Stewart's page which has many inspirations and I wanted to share this idea. Do you have any ideas, tips, or inspirations? I would love to hear them!

Today has been a rough day, I was up at 6am to drop Bo off at the Vet, then we had to pick him up right after class. Since then he has been sleeping with a cone around his neck, making Carlos and I worry with every "puppy dog" look he gives us. 
But, as I am here sitting next to Bo I wanted to share one of my newest shopping finds. These glitter TOMS are my new favorite item for spring. I can't wait to wear them with shorts and a tan. I was skeptical about buying them since there was a few bad reviews on the site. But when I found them  at a local shop which has a great selection of styles and sizes, I couldn't help but try them out, they're so comfortable and cute (can't ask for anything more)! I can't wait to buy another pair!

Our New Addition

I am proud to introduce everyone to the new member of our family, Bo. He has the best personality and fits in perfect with our lives. Tomorrow he is getting fixed, chipped, and his shots so he will be a little under the weather for the rest of the week, but we are hoping that he starts feeling better before we move at the end of the month. Until then he is asleep right next to me on the couch, looking adorable as always :) 
Bo loves taking rides with us as we drive.

Spring Break

Hello everyone! It has been such a long time since I have posted something. I am sorry for the lack of posts, and even the lack of photos. Carlos and I have a new addition to our lives, he is a miniature schnauzer and his name is Bo. He is the most lovable playful little guy. He is very shaggy right now, and is being groomed tomorrow!!! I am sure Mr. Ortega will take pictures of Bo, since I will be at work all day. Also, I mentioned a long time ago that I bought yellow chevron fabric which I wanted to cover the bench that my uncle gave me for Christmas, and well I painted the bench, and hope to cover it on Sunday.. PICTURES will be up! Other than that, I hope everyone has a great day tomorrow (don't forget to wear your GREEN).

Signed the lease for our new bigger place, and I will have to admit that I couldn't be more excited for a bigger place, with a washer and dryer! I can't wait to go shopping for some new items, to fill the space! Maybe I can find the patience to go to a thrift and actually look around...

An Unexpected Find

Last night before the excitement of The Hunger Games at the movie theater, Carlos and I stopped by REI where I found Momentum magazine which is featuring one of my favorite bloggers on the cover!! I couldn't help but buy it (well, Carlos bought it)... Check out the Rockstar Diaries :)

The countdown begins!

A quick picture on our way to see The Vow
I was not into the whole Twilight Saga, I did not read any of the books or watch any of the movies; but now that The Hunger Games is coming out on March 23, I am beyond excited! I can't help it but I am obsessed!!! I can almost relate to all those who waited in line to see the Twilight films... But with that said, we saw The Vow tonight and it was such a heart-wrenching  story, in which I cried throughout. All in all I would highly recommend it (Carlos even enjoyed it). Have a great night!
