Beer and Bowling!

Do you know what the best part of having a bowling alley 2 minutes from your house is? The fact that they have our favorite beer on tap! Pitchers and gutterballs... perfect date night! 

Settin' em up and knockin' em down! 

Of course my ball is pink! 

Tied for a HORRIBLE final score. We really tried here, too! 

This is what we're much better at! 

Bad bowling scores and love,

Snow on the Beach!

A little while back, my area of Virginia got hit with a bit of snow. Living so close to the water of Buckroe Beach, I got extremely excited. I mean, how often do you get to see a snow covered beach?! Skip and I wanted to take photos of each other, and actually play in the snow, but we're both big babies when it comes to the cold so we left after snapping these! Apparently full coats, boots, scarves and the whole nine yards aren't enough to keep us from missing the indoors, Ha! 

Unfortunately  we clearly did not get there soon enough as most of the sand was trampled and unsightly. But, I still think these photos are cool enough to share! 

This little guy was adorable! He kept running around in circles and playing in the snow!

Staying warm and impatiently waiting for Spring,

My new snack obsession

A little something Skip, my husband, and I have been working on since October is a lifestyle health change. Not just a diet, but a rewiring of eating habits in general. Let me tell you, I'm still on the learning curve! It's been going great, but I'm no health expert and I certainty have fallen victim to a cupcake or two (shhh!). 

However, I thought it would be fun to share some of my healthy tips and tricks I'm learning along the way for beating those bad habits! 

My current favorite? Carrots and Laughing Cow cheese. Yes, I'm in love. It beats carrots and veggie dip any day, and the cheese is low in  calorie and high in taste. My favorite is the Garlic and Herb light variety. Give it a try!

Oh Hello Blog!

It's been a while, huh?! If you've followed my blog in the past, you'll know that writing and posting is something I enjoy immensely, but don't always have the time to do consistently. Between Dismantled Fashions, my new graphics/web design project Stay Sick! Design, and day to day life... I tend to let the blogging slip from time to time. 

Well, I'm back now and more inspired than ever! I've started keeping a log of "future blog posts". When I take my precious free time TV breaks, you can find me jotting away in my Cruella Deville notebook with ideas and random scribbles. (Speaking of TV, anyone else crazy excited for new Walking Dead episodes?!) 

So keep your eyes peeled for giveaways, product reviews, more pin up tips, the ins and outs of Dismantled Fashions, and all the dorky random things I'll probably post. Can't wait to see you there!!

And please leave me a comment on things you'd like to see on here. My number one goal is to make posts you like, so help a girl out and leave some suggestions.

Tiki Trouble!!

My original Tiki Skirt used to be my favorite design. And then the perfect gold color that matched his little face was discontinued. So, back to the drawing board for my NEW favorite design. I absolutely love this dancing Tiki man even more!

Mehli for Dismantled Fashions

Here are a couple GREAT photos I hadn't had the chance to post until now. I found Miss Mehli (aka Melanie) online as usual, but isn't it just a small world that she lives just an hour away in Richmond! Not only is she the model in the photos, she also runs her own photography company. I love Jills of all Trades, and this lady is no exception. We're already planning our next product shoot together, plus a little pin up with me in front of the camera!
