SITS housewarming party

Welcome to the Under the Sheets~shhh house warming party. I'm so excited to see you. And thanx sweetie if you're stopping by from SITS today. (My SITSta's from another mother). Trust me, this lifestyle, boutique design and San Francisco blog has kept my fingers busy over the last 14 months.

Wanna get to know me better? Then kick off your shoes and click around a little. I have an eye for fashion, retro photography and design. And I really enjoy out of the box creativity and positive thinking.

First stop on our blog party is for you to check out some inner thoughts posts.

When I was a child, it never occurred to me that my Disney Prince could have some faults. Did you? Post: Disney ruined it for everyone?

Honestly, it wasn't even the dogs sense of fashion that stopped me...it was her coiffed hair. Post: Diva dogs; stylish and scary

You must be tired from all of your post reading, so let's share a glass of wine from my favorite San Francisco wine bar.



What a fun housewarming party! I can't wait to read your comments below and I look forward to getting to know you more. Wait, what? You're already a follower of Under the Sheets~shhh? Ah shucks, you just made my day.

Hello from SITS. I love your penny fairy identity...to think of all the coffees you could have had.

I took a look at the chick chat video and found it interesting. I love traveling and San Francisco was just added to my wish list.

Have a great day and enjoy the attention!

I am convinced that Disney is at least 50% responsible for the breakdown of modern society. No one can really live up to the ideals created by Disney. No one.

Happy SITS day!

Nice blog! I love the way you use so many photos to prove your point. It totally make me believe everything you say, because photos don't lie, right?! Enjoy your SITS day, off to read about your secret identity. Hmmm...I need one of those:)

Alissa said...

Loved your Penny Fairy post. If you didn't live all the way out in California, I would swear I had found some of your pennies. At a park I used to go to, I was always finding one shiny heads up penny near the base of my favorite mossy tree. I am superstitious enough to think that a heads up penny will give me a day of good luck, and so I always pick them up. Apparently, there must be more than one penny fairy in the world

Oooooh, I love your blog! I've added it to the favorites tab on my web browser. I don't think Disney ruined it... I still believe in fairy tales, even if they are fractured at times.

I'll be back!

Happy SITS day!

Love your penny fairy post. I'm one of those people who uses all their change- it will accumulate and I'll use it to buy a quick lunch or a coffee...yes, I'll plop down $8.67 in change. Cashiers love me.

Your comment about leaving your puppy with your prince was hilarious. I love my husband, but I STILL wouldn't trust him to take care of a puppy for the weekend.

Hello from SITS.
As someone who used to dance in the WDW parades I can say that many of us bought the Disney fantasy and are still suffering in one way or another when we discovered REALITY---LOL

J'adore San Francisco!!! My boyfriend lives there (I live in Virginia) and I am a poet. So on one early-on visit he made me close my eyes, then he stopped the car, told me to open my eyes, and there we were ...parked in front of City Lights Books!!

Will be adding you to my front page, lady!

I love the name of your blog too.

Reminds me of this summer when my baby dumplin wouldn't sleep on vacation. I had to lay on the bed next to her porta crib and pretend I was asleep. I was texting all night UNDER MY SHEETS with my BlackBerry.

Feel like a 12 year-old much?!

Great blog.

Tell your husband that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when I find a penny (especially shiny ones) tails up.

I'm still a big believer that good luck will follow me all day long if I find one.
