Dancing's Back!

My favorite fall show is back: Dancing with the Stars! I'm rooting for these two couples (what can I say, I couldn't choose a favorite!):

Missoni Madness

Missoni, the legendary Italian fashion house that has been around since 1953, recently collaborated with Target to release a limited edition collection. I was super excited for this collection (Missoni at Target prices? Yes please!), until I heard that upon launch, it sold out in about 15 minutes everywhere. It was reportedly like Black Friday for Target, who had massive lines outside and whose website crashed that day due to the high demand of products.

While I'm not a fan of the clothing too much (too many zig zags), I did manage to snag a few pieces for my home:

Missoni for Target Large Vase

Missoni for Target Glass Platter

I did, however, buy one shirt which I liked, though not the shorts...it's too matchy matchy and the shorts are uber short.

Three Month Recap

For those wondering (and for my future kids, should they read this one day, ha), here is a recap of the last three months that I've been away:

Graduated and finally completed my MPH degree. Graduation was amazing! Our faculty and distinguished speakers sat on stage, and we were each called up by our individual programs. Two years of hard work led up to one wonderful day.

Went to my most beloved California city, San Francisco, for 4th of July. I can never get enough of the Warf, the sourdough, or the fact that everything in that city is accessible by foot. Oh, and did I mention the amazing coffee? I discovered possibly the best coffee I'd ever had: Blue Bottle Coffee. Dear Blue Bottle Coffee Corporation: Can you please open some shops in SoCal? Your New Orleans Iced Coffee = love in a cup.

Some shots of the city:

And since I obsessively take photos of all my food (don't judge), here are some SF highlights:

French toast...for dessert! Why not?

Another dessert, aka 3 hours in the gym

Duck dish

Fish dish of some sort...I forget the name. It's been too long.

Kobe beef burger (drool)

TRUFFLES! Holy moly, truffles are pricy.

Went to Las Vegas with my mama, where we both saw the most amazing singer: Celine Dion. I grew up listening to all her CDs, and got goose bumps when I heard her perform live for the first time ever. Her voice is AH-MAY-ZING live. She was born with that voice, folks, 'cause there's nothing in the world that can make it that way. Nope. She has mad pipes.

Even more awesome was the fact that her husband was in the audience and was gracious enough after to mingle with us common folk. I was only able to snap a quick picture of him. Can you spot his head? I have no other exciting pictures to show of the concert, as all photography and videoagraphy (is that even a word?) is banned.

August was the month of concerts for me, because I also saw the love of my life, Josh Groban. You can read all about my love for Josh here. Little did I know when I booked tickets for the floor section that I would literally be a about 10 feet away from a small stage set up in the middle of the arena where he opened up the concert. Amazing x 100! Amazing x 1,000!

August is also my birthday month. My dad is traveling this month and was traveling last month as well, but he sent me the cutest bouquet of flowers in the mail. I can see my dad looking at the bouquet online and thinking, "It's cute, it's fuzzy, she'll like it!" And like it I did.

Hope y'all had a great summer, because I sure did. Topic for later this week: house hunting stories. And decorating! Where are the best places to go to for home decor? Please share! I've already discovered The Container Store, Home Goods, Pier 1 Imports, and Urban Home, but I'd love to know where you guys shop for home trinkets.

I'm Back!

I've been away from my blog for over three months! Canyabelieveit?? I've have truly missed the blogging world, especially reading everyone else's blogs and comments. Here I was thinking I'd have so much more free time after graduating to blog, yet I started something new: house hunting! I'm happy to report I will be moving in the very near future. My love for decorating, The Container Store, and furniture shopping has grown at an alarming rate. ;) More updates to come tomorrow.

In related news, my diploma came today. Hooray! It is truly official now. *Tear*
