What's in My Purse?

With the new year, comes new things. Lots of fun, new things. Therefore, I thought I would post of bunch of my new favorites & they all happen to be in my purse right now!

First off, I got this cute purse at Francesca's for a steal of $26 this week with the great after Christmas deals! This is about average for me to spend on purses. I hate spending too much money, because I'm the type of person that likes things to change too often. When I spend money on a purse, I don't use it a year from when I bought it. Therefore, I buy the cheap ones that tear up a lot easier, but hey, at least I can just buy a new one when they do show some wear because I never broke the bank in the first place. 

Even though it just looks like a bunch of crap, all of these are MY LIFE! 

1 // My Lifesaver. I mean, my wallet. This is a Spartina Wallet, aka, the best wallet I have ever owned. This is their "Snap Wallet" but it holds 16 credit cards and still has room for bills, coins & business cards. The best thing is, they are canvas, which means they are easy to clean when they get dirty and only cost $36. Therefore, if you are in the market for a new wallet, BUY ONE OF THESE, NOW. 

2 // A koozie! First off, I'm always cold. Always. Therefore, whether it be a soda, a water, or a beer, no matter where I am, I always have something with me to make sure it doesn't make me colder. The one I always keep in my purse is my wedding Koozie. 

3 // My Lipsticks. I always have something on my lips, whether it be this amazing chapstick by Softlips  in Fresh Mint for $3 or my favorite lipsticks. Right now, the two in rotation are both amazing at keeping the color on while I eat and drink (very important, because I always tend to wear lipstick when going out!) 

 *  Rimmel London's Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick 012 Rosette Color here for $6 &
 *  Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor 140 Fuchsia Fever Color here for $8

And of course, I need something to keep my lipsticks in. Because I have experienced the "lipstick all over everything" at least once in my life. This adorable little Pink bag I have them in was $3 at H&Mm which was such a great snag! 

Also, every girl needs a mirror. If you don't have one in your purse, you're crazy and are obviously borrowing everyone else's. Therefore, this adorable Lilly Pulitzer one is perfect for my purse! 

4 // Sunglasses. Yes, I'm crazy and have three pairs in my purse at all times. For me, I have huge cheeks, and it's very hard to have just one pair that will match every single outfit I have. Especially since I think  "black sunglasses" are just WAY TOO BORING. 

*Gray and Black Leopard Print Sunnies - Gap for $30
* Blue Aviators - TJMaxx for $5 
* Simple Tortoise Shell Sunnies - Unclaimed Baggage for $3  

5 // Earbuds. Because I can't go grocery shopping without them. I honestly don't use them for anything else. Since I work from home, I just blast my music out loud all day and when I take my little Cooper on his walk, I like to just enjoy the silence of the neighborhood. 

6 // My keys, of course! There is nothing new about these, except the adorable chevron key. Therefore, I'm in the market for some way to make my keys cuter. Any suggestions?! 

Also, check out how nicely my AMAZING new SURFACE PRO 3 fits in my new purse?! 

I'm in the market for a case for this sweet computer/tablet, so that I can easily throw it in my purse on the go! 

Hope you enjoyed getting a peek inside my purse!

Christmas Photos

Being newly married, I wanted to have Christmas Photos taken last year to simply capture our lives together as a married couple. Even though we have all of our amazing wedding photos, my goal is to continue having photoshoots with each other so that we have a timeline of our relationship together.

These photos were taken in my in-law's backyard & by my talented sister-in-law Leah

This is my in-law's sweet pup, Baxter! (@huebydogs on Instagram)

This was our Christmas card last year (2013), right after we took the photos, because it really describes our relationship perfectly. We are always laughing, and Dave can't take a picture with a straight face to save his life! 

We weren't able to take photos this year, we literally ran out of time, so I managed to force our pets into a photo (since this is Cooper's first Christmas) and we came up with this for our 2014 card

So basically, The Huebner's are wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!!

Cooper's 1st Birthday!!

Some might think it's a little silly to celebrate your dog's birthday like we did, but those people most likely have children. For Dave & I, these are our children. So yes, we woke him up with a party hat and sang him "HAPPY BIRTHDAY," while he stared at us like we were crazy people who must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed. And yes, I did find this adorable PUPCAKE recipe on Pinterest (of course) and made them the night before his BIG DAY! It was a stupid easy recipe that anyone could make in 15 minutes flat with some basic ingredients you have lying around the house!

These are adorable right?!

The Ingredients are all safe for the pups and were definitely approved by this little guy! 

I followed Jen Wood's recipe, but added a little milkmen to the top of mine and only added a small amount of Peanut Butter to whole batch EXCEPT for the BIRTHDAY BOY'S! Obviously, on his, I had to cover the whole thing in PB, because he's literally obsessed with it. & of course, I was trying to get professional grad photos of him eating it, but once again, I realized, I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL & our dog is really obsessed with food. I did snap a few, and they are adorable enough to share! 

So, please tell me you celebrate your pets too?!
