Hi everybody.  I hope that you all had a fantastic start to your week yesterday - and for those of you on the East Coast, please stay safe with this crazy snow (hopefully you are all dressed a little warmer than I am here).  

I recently did a little Q&A with one of my favorite brands and one of the questions was what was on my bucket list?  It got me thinking a lot about what I want to do with my life (not that I haven't pondered this since birth)... but the number one thing, for me, is travel.  Every day I think I struggle with the urge to just throw everything I own into a backpack and wander to the ends of the earth in search of new experiences... to see everything there is to see and hike mountains that I have never hiked.  If it weren't for the fact that Ben has his big boy pants on and has to show up at his place of business daily, I think this dream would have come to fruition a longgggg time ago.  But his thirtieth birthday is coming up and it has me dreaming of our next adventure.  However, I can't seem to pin down a destination as there are just too many on our 'list.'  He recently asked me what I wanted for my birthday (in June) and the only answer I could come up with was to visit somewhere with elephants (India, Nepal, Thailand etc.)  Can we finagle two big trips in one year for our birthdays?  Probably not.  But a girl can dream.

So help me out guys, where should I take my hubby for his birthday?  What is your dream vacation or adventure?

Happy Monday!  I hope that you all had a great weekend.  Things have been a little crazy over here in Arizona... between the Superbowl XLIX and the Waste Management Open (where Tiger is playing for the first time in thirteen years), there has been a ton going on (and a whole lot of traffic).  Ben and I attended the Pro Bowl fantasy game last night and had a blast (you may have seen my overload of Instagrams).  We are thinking of taking a staycation next weekend up North to try to escape some of the madness going on around town.  If any of you are in town and want any suggestions on what to do, what to see or where to eat, leave a comment below and I'll try to help you out the best I can.  I hope you all have a great week.

Friday's make me want to do a total crazy dance... you know the kind: where you find that song that makes you jam out in your bathroom (I am talking "running man" in place) like a total weirdo and then laugh out loud at yourself and think, 'if only someone saw me do that, they would die.'  Yeah, that's how I feel right now.  Except one time someone did see my do that.  My husband totally caught me mid skier-hop and I literally fell on the floor and cried I laughed so hard.  Ok so anyway, now that we've got that out of the way... moving on to the outfit.  It's much more fascinating that my private dance sessions.

So, I wore this look over Christmas while visiting home in Utah but never got the chance to really photograph it.  We gave it a good two minute attempt, but it was like -18 degrees (literally) and my lip quiver kept getting in the way.  I decided to add tights and a hat to shake things up a bit.  I know most of you are living in Winter wonderlands so I try to accommodate even though we are still in the 60's and 70's here in AZ.  And remember this post?  Yeah, these were all taken in 108-degree afternoon heat in early September but I had to wear sweatpants and shoot the looks early for a Refinery 29 Fall feature.  It basically just sealed in all the juices and my clothes were just all sopping.  And this one?  Yes, I was totally freezing.  But I didn't pack a long black coat in my bag and since I think the back of the dress is the best part, I decided to grin and bear it.  Oh the things we do for fashion and photos.

What's the craziest thing you guys have done for fashion or to get a good photo?

I have had Valentines Day on the brain lately.  Ben made reservations at our favorite restaurant already and it has me so excited for our romantic little date night.  I ordered this red dress recently and can't wait to get dolled up in the sexy hue (bonus: it's Ben's favorite color).  

Whether you're taken or not, I thought it would be fun to put together a few festive outfits to celebrate the designated love holiday.  Personally, I don't think you need to have a significant other to celebrate love.  There are many forms from family to friends to spouses and even pets.  But the most important love you can have is the love you have for yourself.  So show yourself a little affection and go ahead and get dolled up - or whatever it is that makes you feel sexy - and do it for you.
