Guilty Pleasures week on DATD - Chocolate, TV & Shopping!



It's another week of DATD.  The theme? Guilty Pleasures.  Mine are chocolate, my fave TV shows and of course a little shopping!  I hope you had an easy Monday.  Here's to a great week.  It definitely is seeming fall here in Oregon.  I read the funniest LOVE article.  Apparently, fall is "mating" season and it's time to find someone to nest with.  XOXO honeybees!

Revenge is back Sept. 29! Are you ready?


Revenge is probably my favorite TV show of the moment (but it's always hard for me to decide...)  And it's only a few weeks until you can tune into ABC to watch this juicy night time soap filled with designer duds and drama.  What's not to love?

My Top 10 List of Reasons I'm ECSTATIC Revenge is back (well, almost)

1.  I live in Oregon.  This means I will not be seeing the sun from fall until next summer.  PS: Summer here doesn't start until July.  So you might ask what does this have to do with Revenge?  I need some sassy entertainment to keep me distracted from the lack of Vitamin D.
2. Real life couple Emily VanCamp & Josh Bowman.  There's just something about a real life couple on TV or film.  And they're still together.  I double-checked.
3. It's a bit like a fashion runaway show from the comfort of your couch.  Check out the latest fashions you can't afford on a variety of models.
4. Take a peek into the fabulous (and messed) up lives of the super rich Hamptonites.  Even if it's fake, it's fascinating.
5.  Nolan.  Haven't you missed the geeky billionaire sidekick?
6.  Emily VanCamp as Emily Thorne.  First off, the character is named Emily and so is the actor.  That's pretty perfect.  Second, she is a kickass heroine.  It's nice to see a gal that can kick some booty all on her own.
7.  Revenge was inspired by Alexandre Dumas' famous novel The Count of Monte Cristo.  OMG.  This makes perfect sense.  I LOVED that book.  Yes, I read the whole thing.
8. The began show with a quote from Confucius: "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." In Emily's mind, success equals burying her enemies and, most likely, burying herself alongside them.  According to the show creator Emily and Victoria could both end up dead or they could also end up forgiving each other.  The quote is definitely a little morbid though, eh?
9.  Resident villiness Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe).  She's the real deal.  Ice queen.
10.  Revenge is the perfect anti-dote to Mondays.  Let me explain.  Sunday evenings are just a precursor for Monday mornings.  We need something to look forward to in order to get us through the pre-work funk, right?

Sept. 29... it's just around the corner! :)  What's your favorite fall TV show that you can't wait to see in a few weeks?  Or do you also just LOVE Revenge?

Crochet booties, Dip & well wishes!

Hello honeybees!

Well, I promised you booties and here they are.  They are now on the way to Ohio via USPS to my dear old friend Kendra who is now back in the good ol' USofA.  (I didn't make the booties, it was actually the handy work of my madre)


I had the most delicious appetizer at Pastini.  It was the Roasted Artichoke-Garlic Spread with Bruschetta ringing in at $6.95.  Seriously, bomb artichoke dip.  It's kind of mild, but still so yummy.  I'm used to spinach and artichoke dip and this one is just artichoke.  And it's very cheesy!  Who doesn't love cheese?  Well, vegans.  I'm friends with one... and to be fair I think she loves cheese, but it's more important to her to be healthy.  And that's pretty cool.


I looked for calories online so we could all cry *tears* over how many calories are in the artichoke dip and I couldn't find it!  So there you go.  Eat as much as you want.  No calories are available at this time. :)

Well tomorrow is my 6 month review at work.  Wish me luck!  Otherwise, I could become a full time blogger and now THAT would be scary.

XOXO!  Have a wonderful week honeybees.  It's already the end of Weds, only a few day until the weekend.  :)

Despicable Me 2, Frozen Yogurt & a very Happy Labor Day!

I finally saw Despicable Me 2.  Oh my goodness, it's soooo funny and good!  I can wholeheartedly recommend.  It's a super fun sequel and at least as good as the original, I might even like it a little better.
And I just LOVE this little girl soooo much.
And of course, the minions!
I hope you have a great Labor Day and enjoy whatever you end up doing.  I'll be working on Monday... saving up the vacation time for an awesome vacation to Disney World.  I'm going to have the vacation time, but I need to work on saving some dollars too! :)
A little sweet treat from Yo Zone was a great way to end the weekend.
And for the crafting corner, my mom made this adorable little cat hat that I'll be sending soon to a friend who has a baby boy!  He's already 7 months old and they just moved back to the states from Korea. :)  Matching booties will be coming soon.
Well this has been a super random blog post, but I guess it's been a bit of a random week.  So there ya go.... XOXO honeybees

The end of summer

I guess technically summer doesn't end until September 21, but my guess is that it might come a little sooner here in Oregon... I guess we'll see soon.

Warren and I spent a relaxing day at the river.  It's like a beach and a river and it's nice and close to PDX at Reeder Beach at Sauvie Island.  You have to pay $7 for a parking pass.  You can just stop at the general store once you cross the bridge onto the island.  It's well worth it to spend a day at a beach (there's sand) where you can lay out or relax in the river.  Be sure to bring a floaty!

Also, I finally got the best tan of summer! :)  And just in the nick of time, right?  I'm proud of those tan lines!  And with Instagram, it's even more dramatic!  Instagram just makes everything look soooo much better.  What would we do without filters?
How are you spending your Labor Day weekend?  Whatever you're doing, I hope you enjoy and get plenty of R&R.  Oh, and drink your H2O!  I didn't do enough of that this morning and I was getting light headed (no bueno).  So my new goal is to drink more H2O,  a lot more!  And sleep... I need more of that too. :)
A big crochet bow
(I ended up making this into a headband)
And a cute puppy photo is always in style
