new year's day, sailing, and unravelling

hi ocean dreamers!

so i'm into typing without any caps lately just because 
it's a lot easier and i kinda like it
so i'm just going to go with it. i like how
it looks, it kind of gives writing a bit more character
except for the lack of proper capitalization, right?!

so i've been missing in action since new year's day,
i've been busy battling food poisoning or the flu 
(not sure exactly which one but either way it's not fun)
and i've also been having serious 
fun adventures with my bk.
i thought i'd share some recent pictures with you from
new year's day. it was beautiful, sunny, and perfect
for some ocean dreaming photos...
on new year's day we went out and got brunch
near the water, it was a long wait but definitely
worth it! bk found this random new year's eve hat
and told me to put it on (above). 
i was concerned about germs,
ha ha, but it looked clean enough to me;
click went the camera.
 breakfast was delish. see for yourself.
i devoured an denver's omlette 
with lots of ham and veggies.

after breakfast bk and i took a walk
and ventured down to the dock
where there were tons of sail boats.
it made me want to hop on one and go sailing!
the day before new year's eve we
went out for our 4 course meal and i had
bk snap a pic of me in the sparkly outfit i wore
on january 1st, later that night for dinner,
we went to manhatten beach, where we
ate at a mexican restaurant called panchos, and
then went for a 6 mile walk by the water!
it was beautiful and our goal was to walk towards
the pier where the lights were shining.
we made it to the pier and i was in love
with all of the lights.
bk took this shot on his new droid.
by the way i want one. so much fun.

part of our celebration for the new year?
more cupcakes.
yeah, just a tad obsessed.
how is your new year shaping up to be?
after that day i got sick, but today
i was able to go out and about again with bk.
i love that i'm still in california by the way!
i didn't expect to stay this long, but as long as bk
wants me to stay, here i will remain.

before i leave you i wanted to give a shout
out to one of my new sponsors - apothica,
they are a lovely makeup company and
they have several of my favorite products
toofaced too! yay!

also, i'm currently in a state of unravelling
and i'm really in love with the class and not
to mention i'm excited to unravel parts of me
that i have yet to see and discover...
please visit susannah conway's site, you'll love
the class as much as i do (and it's only the first week)
if you can have the opportunity 
to take it in the future!

well, i'm off to unravel and visit 
your lovely blog lands...
have a wonderful evening!
