These are some more of my Favorite Things

Whew, I finally got through most of the Royal wedding coverage. I was thinking of how ugly the enclosure we bought to contain Livzilla whilst I do chores, take a quick shower and even happily play in when I'm blogging, like she is doing right now. So I was looking for a remedy from this gray eyesore when I stumbled upon this

HOLY SHIT!! I am drooling...I must make this card table playhouse!! So incredibly adorable. If you aren't brave enough to take on a crafty project like this yourself, you can purchase them from MissPrettyPretty on Etsy. With the cuteness and detail she has created, I find the price is quite reasonable. I can see Liv having tea parties in there *we'll have to add a lamp for her*
Smila Blomma looks like a good option.

Another favorite thing is this sweet gift from our friend Dave who just returned from Russia.

I am a huge fan of nesting dolls. Love the artistry, thanks Dave!

So, how about this?

This guy is a strong contender for Liv's birthday present *I am contractually obligated to shut my fat mouth about any other details*

My very favorite thing is the engagement photo shoot of my friends Carlos & Stephanie *I'm officiating their September nuptials*

GORGEOUS!! Loving their photographer me, my camera and you

Ahh, Steph is a pretty awesome jumper, love it!

They are super rad. Earlier this week I received their Save the Date in the mail and it's just as adorable

The C&S is interactive by flipping the string it animates an arrow going through the heart *Fancy!*

Another favorite thing I failed to post about on Wednesday was my shopping trip with Aimee. I was so tired to blog about it but we went pre-shopping for Aimee's apartment and I finally used the $50 giftcard from Anthropologie for my birthday *Merci Story & Chris* 

I bought this FABulous shirt, the London kids cards I mentioned earlier and these super fantastic eyeglasses strap *I am really nerding out about my Librarian chic style*

I think I'll wear it tomorrow when we take Liv to the park to meet her BFF Charlotte *if the weather is nice*

Me & Bestie being silly

She scored this cute infinity scarf on sale at Urban *she's gonna kill me for posting this wonky pic of her, haha!*

They are so stellar, they look awesome in person. My only problem is when I hold Liv, she tries to eat them!

My shirt says "This means RAD!!" however in all honesty, it's written in Japanese. For all I know it could say This means LOSER!! We went to BabyGap so I could buy a swimsuit for Liv but they didn't have it in stock yet. So I went to BabyGap in Glendale *who was having a big sale* but they didn't have what I wanted either so I'll have to wait until next week to get it for the San Diego trip. I am thinking of some sandals too

I'm usually not a fan of a 2-piece for a little girl but I love this rashguard and the boycut of the bottoms. The coral color is fantastic, I wish Gap had this in my size!!
My last favorite thing is my new book *I picked it up at Target last night*

Tina Fey is remarkable, I'm sure I'll be laughing throughout this book.
Hopefully, I'll have time to finish it before Liv graduates from high school!!

The Royal Wedding

I went to bed around 12:30 last night but I left the telly on and I could hear Cnn coverage of the wedding. I fell asleep before Kate arrived in her dress and I just woke up at 8:30 so I feel like I'm behind the world. AOL News has already ruined it for me with a photo of the first kiss but I am still watching the 6 hours of wedding coverage I recorded on my DVR. I am enjoying BBC's take on it. They are much more refined and less circus sideshow-y than American coverage. So far I've seen the guests arriving and they just told us the new titles the couple have been given. Umm, is it me or did Wills get downgraded to Duke? I am all excited that Kate's dress is by Alexander McQueen *via Sarah Burton* I give her dress a solid 9. STUNNING! She looks lovely. My only critique is long gloves are only worn during an evening wedding...etiquette rules!!

LOVE the bouquet!!

Alright, here's the real, real

Hot Ginge totally has that I just farted look on his face!!

They both look incredibly handsome!! Yummy

She really is stunning

Time to grab your crotch, keeping it classy Harry!

Thank God this didn't happen
I had my eye on Harry & Chelsy

Kate is rocking a serious Kool Aid smile, she is thinking "I's one rich bitch now!"

How adorable is their get away car?? I love that Wills is driving

And the most anticipated moment of the year!! The SNOG!!

This is precisely why I didn't have a flowergirl at my wedding. Kids get crankyface and ruin pictures!!

Here's my homegirl, Liz...I want to meet her sooo fucking bad!!

Check out the most important element of any wedding...


Sprinkles is giving away 50 Royal red velvets to anyone who whispers "I Do". I am thinking of stopping by today with Liv

I've been a big fan of Chelsy Davy but she is looking quite busted for such a big day...she is a true party girl, get her ass on Jersey Shore!!

I would rock all these hats, LOVE them curazy toothy Brits!!

Princess Beatrice beats Princess Eugenie...what was she thinking, that blue monstrosity looks like a reject Project Runway hot tranny MESS!!

Awesome hat Bea!!

This bitch....*serious side-eye!!*

I love Posh's bitchface...she is the Queen of miserable-looking!!

It's got to be a combination of hunger and being preggo whilst *uh huh* wearing YSL heels.

I have no idea what happened to my sexpot Becks, he got old and leathery overnight. He's also rocking the Get it Guurl! pose.

Speaking of gettin' it...The tiara turned out perfectly!! I LOVE my sewing machine ❤

By sheer coincidence, I bought these from Anthropologie on Wednesday with Aimee

City Walks with Kids: London: 50 Adventures on Foot

Now I am stoked to start my next project....

These are beyond FABulous!!
