Cornbread, Puppies and PowerMate

Yesterday I made some yummy cornbread to eat with the chili we had made earlier in the week. It was tasty and not too sweet. We used this recipe.

The pups and I had some quality snuggle time yesterday. With both the roomie and I at work for most of the day, I think both pups have been missing their humans. Isn’t Reese’s adorable?

Over the last few weeks I have noticed that I run my Iphone battery down pretty quickly. Between Instagram, blog things and emails, I have found that I usually need a mid-day charge. I just ordered this little guy to help me out when I don’t always have easy access to an outlet. And it’s nautical, how fitting!

What apps do you use (and love!) on your phone? Any favorites that you want to suggest I look at? Happy Friday!

Shorts, Purses, Puppies and Bowties

The last few days have been spectacularly warm here in the Bay Area. Hitting the high 90’s every day has prolonged the summer feel, and I have been hitting up my shorts shelf every day. These are a few of my go-to pairs:

Hot heat makes shorts a must.

I had been waiting for something special to wear my new Kiel James Patrick purse to. So when my friend Kim had a BBQ I decided it was time to show it off. It was a casual relaxed affair, and I loved every minute of it.

Sometime in July the Roomie and I got new collars for both pups. Reece’s rocked a blue one and Nala got one with whales and a bow-tie. They fell asleep one afternoon in the back of my car and this is what they looked like. It proves they are indeed related.

Nala loves to wake me up in the morning by standing basically over me until I wake up from the sheer force of her staring at me. In this photo she was momentarily distracted by the squirrels playing in our yard.

We loved how she looked in the whale bowtie, so we decided to find some other colors for her (and Reece’s!) to wear occasionally inside the house. We had a small photo-shoot the other day, and both pups rocked the photos.

I’m hoping to make this a regular thing.  Do you have any pets? Do you do silly thing with them like I have? I hope everyone is having a great Sunday!
