She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Me!

Today I'm popping in to do my own installment of She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not.  This is one of my favorite posts to write, so I decided to do it myself this week (: Hope ya don't mind!  Here we go...

She Loves Me:

1. These photos.
My friend Emily is the seriously amazing photographer behind Gem Photo and she took these photos on her most recent vacation to Europe.  These pictures were captured in Burano and Em has left me wanting to go real bad! Can we just talk about the colors?!

2. My new sparkly flip flops from J. Crew for only $6.99!!

3. The color Turquoise.

4. This dresser I found from a cute new blog I discovered, I Just Might Explode.
I mean, genius is this?!

5. JP from The Bachelorette.
I won't lie, I'm addicted to the show, but am the least bit impressed with Ashley. However, I loveeee JP. But if he doesn't win, it's fine...I guess I'll take him off Ashley's hands (:

6. Baskin Robbins Cookies 'N Cream ice cream.
With Rainbow Sprinkles.
The only way to go (:

7. I'm loving that Whippy Cake is giving away a $30 gift card to one lucky reader of mine!

She Loves Me Not:

1. That my brother has been gone on a trip for a few weeks now.
 I miss him!

2. That Million Dollar Decorator's had their season finale last week.  
What am I going to do without those hilarious decorators each week?! I already miss hearing Martin saying "Oh, darling!" every 5 seconds.

3.  My sweet Shasta is in the hospital.
She had her spleen removed the other day after it ruptured and is currently recovering at the overnight doggy hospital.  It's very possible the reason for the rupture is because she has cancer, so they ran tests to find out. If she does have cancer, we'll need to put her down to put her out of her misery after we spend the week at home soaking up all the joy she brings us.  I'm in shock. I can't imagine my life without our girl. I just love her so much! Please say a prayer for our pup (:

4. Our house has been crazy the past few weeks.
We've been doing lots of work and small repairs to the home, and lots of little repairs= lots of a big ole mess. Our Pottery Barn rug came today, though, and the painting is finished.  I'm stoked to show you the reveal next week.

My mom is going to kill me for posting this mess (;
5. Burnt Hair
Last week I was curling my hair and somehow the electricity was crazy messed up! Meaning, it was like 1000 times hotter than normal. It totally fried off a chunk of hair...right in the front. Adorable.

Have a wonderful Wednesday! What are YOU loving?
PS. Don't forget to enter the Whippy Cake giveaway right below this post!! (:

  19. Hey Michaela, sorry to hear about Shasta :( In February, James and I had to put our pup Cruz down due to cancer as well.Unfortunately he wasn't even two yet, but remember the good times. A dog lives on in memories every day. I still tear up on an almost everyday basis. Just remember my fave doggie quote, 'Be the kind of person your dog thinks you are'. Peace, love and healing your way babe!

  20. Saying a prayer for your Shasta. My dogs are my everything too and I don't know what I'd do without them.

  21. I will definitely keep praying for your family and Shasta. I know how hard this must be for y'all...I'm so sorry girl.

  22. I'm loving JP, too! I definitely think she is going to pick him.

    Still praying for Shasta...and for y'all!! Love you!

  34. Oh M! I'm actually crying right now hearing about the news of your sweet Shasta...I know how much you love her and there is nothing worse than having someone you love sick or in pain. Sending hugs and prayers your way (c:

  35. what a long list of lovelies, those 1st photos are gorgeous! so colorful and candified. isn't Kara's blog the best! when i saw those drawers the first time i glee'd out over them too.

    many prayers for Shasta, we've been faced with something similar and i can't tell you how much i wish for her to be well and for you all to breath sighs of relief. blessings! ♥

  36. 1. LOVE those J. Crew flipflops.. I'm going to have to search for a pair now, what a bargain!
    2. Turquoise is also my obsession right now!
    & 3. I'm SO sorry to hear about Shasta - you both are in my prayers!!


  37. Hey Michaela I'm catching up on my blog sorry to hear about Shasta. How is she doing?

    Prayers up!

  38. Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about Shasta. I hope things are okay now :(

  39. There are pops of turquoise all over my house! J'adore that hue!

  40. I hear this season of the Bachelorette is the lowest-rated season in the show's history. I guess the public wanted Emily too. I hope she picks Ben. But I would hate to have her heart broken. JP reminds me of too many men on Long Island.


Thank you for stopping by! If you have a specific question, please email me at I always reply to emails! Have a blessed day! xoxo
