St. George Trip

So it's apparently a tradition now that we go to St. George for President's Day weekend. Which is cool because for the past two years it means Valentine's Day and Chris's birthday as well. I absolutely love St. George, it's gorgeous and warm and for a long time I wanted to live there. The red rocks are gorgeous and amazing and I'm super upset I didn't get more/better pictures. 

But here are the pictures I do have as well as a short fashion photo shoot at the end of what I wore on Valentine's Day. It wasn't a big deal for us, so I was super casual.

This picture was taken on the ride home. The line on the top right is a crack in the windshield. I'm the worst for forgetting to take a picture like this until we were leaving. I love red rock. 

Our condo/hotel thing is in the weirdest place. You have to drive through a neighborhood and apartments to get there and the view from the balcony is this picture. A dry boring field. Where children like to shoot BB guns at each other. Apparently.  

But the condo has basketball courts, two swimming pools, hot tubs, and fun games to play. We were able to swim, which made me super excited because I love swimming so much! We also played ping pong and pool with my in-laws and it was tons of fun.

This is our beautiful condo/hotel/timeshare thing. I forget what to call it. I love that there are palm trees. Palm trees are the coolest.

My incredible mother-in-law gave me two super cute Valentines. She is the sweetest as were the treats she gave me. 

Chris and I didn't do much for Valentine's Day or his birthday. Later in the week after we were home I took Chris out to eat at one of his favorite restaurants in Logan, Indian Oven (which everyone should go to. It was really sad because we were the only ones in there and it's honestly so good and the people who work there are so nice, so if you live in Logan just go there!!!), and I gave him his birthday present:

Yep, I gave him an iPod. I spoil him. But he deserves it. 

I spent most of the trip reading and finished my book a bit too fast, considering I only brought one. I was reading Eleanor & Park for my February Book Club book which if you haven't joined in already, you have one week left to read any love story of your choosing. I have a book planned for next month as well, which is a book my mom gave me months ago and I'm just getting around to reading it, so be prepared for Book Club again next month! Yay! 

Now onto my fashion post!

Shirt: ???
Jeans: Walmart
Shoes: Kmart

Playgrounds are awesome. This was at the hotel and I had fun taking pictures and playing on it. My hair turned out super curly and awesome on Valentine's Day and I wish I had better pictures of it because even Chris said it was amazing. 

I'll have my normal widget of same or similar items at the very bottom of this post. But I have one last picture. 

Being with my in-laws means seeing my favorite dog Max. While staying at the in-law's the night before going to St. George, Chris put a soccer jersey on Max and it was adorable... and barely fit him. But he's the cutest and best dog in the world.

Style Icon: Emma Stone

Once upon a time my roommates introduced me to Easy A , which became one of my favorite movies, and helped me fall in love with Emma Stone (in a completely platonic way of course). I mean, seriously, just look at how great she was in Easy A:

I think Emma Stone is fantastic. She's a great actress, witty, funny, beautiful, and has such a great outlook on life. She is down to earth and amazing. And her relationship with Andrew Garfield is the cutest thing ever. I want them to be together forever. They're adorable and perfect.

But for the purposes of this post, she's also has great style. She has a very laid back wardrobe while still looking incredible. Honestly, she looks amazing all the time. She looks great with every hair color, her makeup is always fantastic, and her style is one of my favorites.

She wears jeans a lot which really speaks to me because jeans are the best. I wear jeans a lot. But Emma Stone has a way of looking classy and well put together no matter what. Even when she's out walking her dog she looks incredible. She knows how to put both casual and classy items together in the perfect way. She looks great no matter what and that's why she's my current style icon.

And now here are many pictures of her style, starting with personal quotes from her about her outlook on beauty. Here's to hoping this amazing actress wins at the Oscars on Sunday!

And now, because I'm literally obsessed with their relationship...

I honestly love them.

Valentines Weekend Book Club!

So I really want to start up my book club again but I've been horrible at giving myself time to read. Last year I kept complaining about having to read books for school so I couldn't do book club, but now I'm just working and I have plenty of time, but I spend it watching TV instead. So lame!

I picked a new book from the library to read and I'm very excited for it (I'll get to the title in a second) and it's main theme is about teenage romance (the greatest kind of romance there is). But this weekend I want all my readers to read or reread a love story in honor of Valentines Day and then leave me a comment or send me a tweet about their favorite love story!

The book I chose to read is Eleanor & Park .

I have heard many good things about this book but I have never read it before. Here's a brief look into what it's about, from Amazon:

Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love—and just how hard it pulled you under.

One of my favorite Youtubers, Meghan Rienks, has said this is one of her favorite books and she seems to have a similar taste in books as I do so I trust her opinion, at least for myself. To each his own. Which is why I'm giving you the option of picking your own book and telling me all about it so I can have more books on my reading list (which is packed but always ready for more).

As always, (but it's been so long we all probably have forgotten) we are an official Book Club on GoodReads. You can find our club HERE and anyone is welcome. Remember, there is no commitment, no stress, and I'll try to put up a new book each month. But this month is different since we're already half way through it and you're picking your own. But please have fun with the one you pick and don't forget to tell me about it!! I always want book suggestions!

Remember to Tweet about your book with #DancingCowBookClub so everyone can hear about the book you're reading. As always, thank you for your participation and I hope you have fun reading!!
