little rocky

i loosely followed a pattern found in ami ami dogs which was recently translated and published in english. my book is in japanese so there was a lot of guess work involved and for all i know i made this little maltese using a pattern meant for a great dane. happy monday!

comic book love: EmiTown

my sister is my favorite source for new reads. going to her house is like visiting my own private library where i don't have to worry about due dates. and she reads everything so i can go to her and get books in any genre including comics/graphic novels. sweet!! she recently let me borrow EmiTown and i inhaled it. thankfully, i can get more on her blog. emi's easy to relate to and the facial expressions are priceless. and it really makes me crave a breakfast burrito.

it's way too early to think about beaches and swimming but it's another cold, gray day in boston and i'd like to imagine being back in cancun staring at the ocean with my toes buried in the sand in a pretty bathing suit. i'm loving all the super cute one piece suits that are popping up everywhere. i definitely want to trade in my uncomfortable bikini for one of these!

busyness + a puddle photo

RT and i took a trip to chicago to do some wedding planning and to hang out with my family. i love seeing my family <3 that weekend kicked off hardcore wedding planning time. within a few days, we signed a contract and put down deposits for our venue and photographers. we met with our florist (love her!) and got a block of hotel rooms reserved for our guests. we got our officiant ordained and researched our county's marriage laws. we discussed videographers (eh still don't know what to do with that), sent out our save the dates, and got our wedding website up and running. after such a long delay, it's like months worth of wedding planning was done in a week.

while we were in chicago, we asked a friend of ours to take a few photos for us so we could have a nice photo to use on our save the dates. we had one hour to spare out of our crazy schedule so it was a rapid fire photoshoot that ended when it started to pour so hard that water was dripping down my face. RT and i are the most awkward people on earth but mr. p got some really sweet shots. he's a pharmacist by day but i think he should be a photographer by night ^_^ thanks mr. p!!
