Insta Weekend & 6 Years of True Love

Hi everyone. Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend. For once, I feel well rested and ready to start the week! I think it's because we had such a fun/chill weekend. Here's what went down...


1. View from my conference on Friday - back in the old 'hood - Downtown SD! 2. Even though I loved being downtown, my heart still lies in Cardiff . I mean, how cute is this sign?? 3. Dinner at Jakes in Del Mar - One glass of wine and I was done for. I am a cheap date! 4. WIW on Friday night...my gold "superhero" belt...more on this later!


Another stop at True Food Kitchen. It's official; I'm addicted. Do you not love this sign at the bar (bottom left)? My favorite quote is "If it came from a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don't!" So true! I had my usual...edamame dumplings, kale salad and homemade ginger ale. Yum!


1. Shoesies from J. Crew...both on sale so I had to get them. I totally needed striped wedges and neon pink flats, right? 2. Ms. Kona after her haircut...doesn't she look beautiful?? 3. My battle with the white shiba and the furminator. This was just round 1. Gotta love shedding season! 4. One of my favorite salads at Lotus Cafe = spinach, veggie bacon bits, artichokes, radishes, olives, carrots and sprouts. Oh and vegetarian caesar dressing. So good!

Enough about the weekend...let's get to the good stuff! Today is an extra special day because my baby boy is turning 6.

Kirin, my handsome white shiba, is the love of my life (besides my husband, of course). He is my first child and has shown me that I can love a pet unconditionally. This little monster can make me so mad and then melt my heart seconds later. When he was a puppy, he was incredibly wild. At his first vet appointment, the vet had to pin him. I asked him when he would start to calm down and the vet said at 6...YEARS old. I didn't think we could make that long but I am sure glad we did. He is my little monkey bear, baby bubbles, Mr. K, etc. The vet was right, he has definitely calmed down in the past year but he still has enough craziness left in him to make us nuts. I love him more and more every day and even though gives me little heart attacks daily when he does something crazy like hanging out on our neighbors ROOF last week - let's not talk about that one right now, though. I am still not over it.

Anyway...Happy Birthday Mr. Kirin! I love you to the moon and back - times infinity!

Linking up with Sami today!
