Happy Birthday!

This past weekend was Jonathan's birthday! We had a great weekend, we went to the spa for a couples massage and then out for a fabulous dinner. The next day I baked a peanut butter, chocolate cake that would make your head spin! I found the recipe on Vanilla Sugar . I wish I had more pictures to share but we haven't bought a new camera yet. Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

Fountain outside of the spa.

Many Reese's were consumed during the making of this cake.

“If you're lucky enough to be Irish, then you're lucky enough.”

Happy St. Patty's Day, even if you are not Irish! Today I woke up early and made some delicious Irish Soda Bread...

and wished I could travel to Ireland to see all the shades of green!

Instead, I'll have to settle for green beer:)

Picture Perfect...

I am in need of a new camera! My boyfriend and I are going to California this summer and I want to take beautiful  pictures! I really know nothing about cameras or photography for that matter, so any suggestions would be really appreciated! What kind of camera do you have? Do you love it?
Here are some photos that I love to look at...

"Why is a raven like a writing desk?"

I am finally going to see "Alice in Wonderland" this weekend! To celebrate, here are some gorgeous photos taken by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue, along with some of my favorite quotes from the book.
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop."

"Curiouser and curiouser."

" I can't explain myself , I'm afraid, because I am not myself, you see."

" How doth the little crocodile improve his shining tail, and pour the waters of the Nile on every golden scale."

"If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think."
"We're all mad here."
"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things: of shoes and ships- and sealing wax- of cabbages and kings."
"Twinkle, twinkle little bat. How I wonder what you're at! Up above the world you fly, like a tea tray in the sky!"
"Sentence first, verdict afterwards!"
"We called him Tortoise because he taught us."
"She generally gave herself very good advice, though she very seldom followed it."

I've got the golden ticket!

Growing up, Willy Wonka was one of my favorite movies. I always wanted to win a golden ticket, who didn't? Well now you have a chance of winning one! Willy Wonka came out with a line of chocolate bars, called "The Exceptionals", which are being introduced with a golden ticket contest! A lucky five winners, will get a trip around the world! Not as good as a tour of the chocolate factory, but pretty damn close. Will you go buy a bar?
Veruca Salt was always my favorite, mainly because I liked her dress.

Random fact about me... one of my goals in life is to own lots of Chanel. J'adore Chanel's Spring 2010 line. C'est magnifique! I will donate a kidney for a pair of those ballerina tights. Here are some of my favorite looks. Enjoy!
