Halloween Groove

This video made me laugh. Josh and I might need to step things up here in Grapevine this holiday season. Any song requests?


Thriller is pretty awesome too…

Happy Birthday to ME!

Today I turn 34. Weird. How did that happen?

33 was a good one. I got to marry the sweetest guy on earth. It’s gonna be hard to top that.

Cheers to me and birthday wishes for a fabulous 34th year!  —DP


Thursday Purse Day

Here’s another Coach bag that caught my eye. Love the green.

Thursday Purse Day

I can spend hours upon hours searching around on Etsy…soooo many cool things. I stumbled across this chunky lady recently. Love the grey and yellow combo.

Happy Birthday Josh!!

Today is my sweet hubby’s 30th birthday! I know he’s not too happy about leaving his twenties (weren’t we all), but it’s ok babe, it’s really not THAT bad – promise 🙂 I hope you have an amazing 30th year, you deserve it more than anyone I know. Thank you for loving me and always making me smile. You’re the best and I love you so so much. Happy Birthday!!!!!!!! xoxoxoxo

Thursday Purse Day

Wow – three weeks in a row – woooo-hoooo!

So I ran across this bag on the Dreamy Whites blog a few weeks ago. I recently signed up for an online photography class so I’ve started toting my camera around with me more often, which can get a little bulky. I thought this was a cute solution to carrying a separate camera bag and purse.

The shop, Jeanne Oliver Designs, has some cute stuff. Check it out 🙂  –DP

Thursday Purse Day

I’m back with Post #2 for Thursday Purse Day – so far I’m sticking to it! Now, searching for purses can quickly become overwhelming, where does a girl even begin? To slowly ease into this I went straight to one of my favorite stores, Anthropolgie. I wish I could live there – just love the whole vibe. Anyway, while browsing through their online shop I found this green guy


It’s nothing too snazzy, but I love the relaxed shape and color (I’m drawn to anything green or blue), it just looks comfortable. And get this, it’s called the “Bell Pepper Tote”, how fun! I can’t get enough of bell peppers this summer – we’ve grown them in our garden, we have em’ on pizza, kebobs, stir fry, stuffed with cheese and cooked up on the grill, and just last night in Mrs. Bunches Quinoa salad…LOVE THEM. Okay, got off track there a bit, was a little too excited about the name…oops. So yeah, I’m diggin’ this bag, and if it didn’t have such a hefty price tag I’d be sold. I’m the queen of hitting up their in store sale section, so who knows, maybe he’ll pop up in there!  — DP

Thursday Purse Day

I’ve been traveling all over the place the last two weeks and I WILL get all my pictures downloaded to share soon (especially P&M’s wedding). In the meantime, I thought I’d start a new habit to commit myself to post – and here is the debut of “Thursday Purse Day”. I know, so exciting, right? Since that was a pretty easy rhyme I’m sure there are a million places you can find such a topic, but since I love me some purses (and have way too many) I thought this might be a fun weekly post. And to kick things off we’ll start with my go to accessory of the summer – this hot pink beauty. Granted it’s a wristlet, but STILL, I’ve been using it as a purse the last few months. It’s too dang hot to schlep around a big ol’ bag in this Dallas heat, so this baby has been perfect. 

Isn’t she pretty?

While searching for a groom’s gift for the Mr. back in April, I popped into Coach figuring a “nice” wallet would do the trick. And how does a girl go in that store without coming out with a treat for herself. I mean c’mon, I needed my own little bride’s gift to moi!

Now, it looks like they don’t carry the exact one anymore, but here is a sister to mine. Highly recommend all you ladies go light in the summer…my shoulder has appreciated the break! And I promise, any future Thursday Purse Day posts (we’ll see if this idea sticks) won’t be my worn down collection – there are tons of goodies lurking out there on the web, and I’ll find my favorites to share. I know the anticipation is killing you. — DP

Happy Birthday Mom!

My mom turns the big 60 today – Happy Birthday!!!  Miss you…. Love, Devri Doodles 🙂
