A Hot and Cold Weekend

This weekend was hot and humid followed by dark, gloomy with a cold wind and light rain.
Monsoons are the best.
Even better was the feeling of fall. Dark clouds, cool air, and the smell of rain.
Fall is definitely my favorite and I'm holding out a lot of hope for that season.
No pressure, man.
It feels like we spent the whole weekend running errands. Saturday I had to go to several places to pick up supplies for some orders I'm working on. I cant forget the stop at the cupcake shop. I tried a "Love Bunny" which is carrot cake with a pineapple cream cheese frosting. I was so full from lunch but you better believe I finished that bad boy in the Joanns parking lot.We also did some major grocery shopping. Have I mentioned that I HATE grocery shopping. Once I get in those doors I'm on a mission to get everything on my list as fast as possible ( I usually forget something).

Sunday we ran more errands like Costco and a specialty market for some Pepita nuts and Coconut milk. We were also on a mission to find Twinkies. We went to 3 stores together and the boy went to 5 all together with no luck. I don't even remember the last time I had a Twinkie but those little suckers must be delicious.

I also made the decision to change the name of my shop. Doe Eyed Dear has been good to me but I'm hoping Jenna Leslye Designs will be even more successful. I have lots of ideas in the works.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Palm Springs Getaway

The last couple of days were spent in Palm Springs for a little getaway.
My husband works so hard and its almost necessary for him to take a little trip every once in awhile so he can clear his head. 

On the way there the temperature just went up and up and up.
I think 112 was the hottest I caught.

We stayed at the Desert Springs Marriott. My family would stay there when I was little and it's also where Jessie Spanos dad got married on Saved By The Bell.

We pretty much spent a whole day and a half sitting in the pool. It was the only place to be

We also enjoyed a nice fluffy bed that didn't have a rambunctious puppy in it!

I was most excited to see the Forever Marilyn statue right in Downtown Palm Springs.
We caught her right before she went to another city.

Tim has been wanting to go to a fancy dinner since....forever.
It was so fun getting dressed up and eating at one of the fanciest restaurants we could find.

I was most excited about my shoes and accessories

We caught the last boat tour at the hotel before heading to dinner.

Here's a quick Vine of our ride :)

Although we were happy to come home to our little guy, it was a little difficult waking up in our own bed and not having a pool to lounge in

Till next time Palm Springs!

Mantra Monday: All It Takes Is...


I have a lot of time to think. Sometimes too much.
There are days when I fill my head with tons of thoughts, ideas, and plans but those days could be quickly followed by the ones where I don't think I can take another day.

Funny how life is. I just have to remember to take things one step at a time. Oh, and lists too. Lists help a whole lot.

Lost and Found

Aha! We found them! 
My black glasses that is. They've been missing since October and I was almost certain they were left behind during our mad dash out of New York. Damn you Hurricane Sandy! 

For 8 months I've been wearing the same pair of brown cat eye glasses with every outfit.
Can you imagine the fashion faux pas!? I kid. I love those brown cat eye glasses. I get tons of compliments on them. The other day a girl even said, "OMG! I lyke love your glasses! They're so...Old time-y" Hmm....

Where have they been hiding for almost a year you ask? Under the bed of course. Or shall I call it Linus' Den of Destruction...

Let's just say we could open up our own document shredding business.

But I am still missing a bra. I'm totally convinced that's floating in the Hudson or something. I couldn't be held responsible for what made it off that smelly New Jersey ferry and into the city.
