Photo A Day I Week 4

Welcome to week 4 in the lives of Ashley and Shelby! :)
Week 4 was filled with lots of snow, a couple of movies, and some yummy food.

 Day 22: A sneaky blizzard came through the city dropping a foot of snow
 Day 23: Bundled up and made the trek to Starbucks for an afternoon coffee break in the snow
 Day 24: Working away. Apparently one computer isn't enough for Shelby :)

 Day 25: We went to an early showing of Wolf of Wall Street and it was snowing again when we got out so we ducked into Panera for some soup and hot chocolate
 Day 26: We wanted to see Dallas Buyers Club (so good by the way!) but the only theater it was still playing at was the one in times square which we try to avoid at all costs. It was actually pretty calm which was a nice surprise. Probably had something to do with the fact that it was 9 degrees outside. 
 Day 27: Ashley made a yummy back to school dinner for Shelby
Day 28: Poor Pixie has been sick with a stomach bug. Hopefully this pedialyte and baby food will help her feel better. 

Until Next Time

Week two of the new year started off VERY cold. Ashley spent the week back in NY but Shelby jetted off to Puerto Rico for some fun in the sun with friends before classes start back up.

 Day 9: Haven't gone grocery shopping yet so getting creative with what we have on hand. This is Ashley's take on the ramen burger...the rice cake burger! ha ha

 Day 10: Cozy Friday night. A little wine, yummy smelling candle, and Pinterest.

 Day 11: Shelby is off to Puerto Rico for a week to visit friends. 

Day 12: Shelby went zip lining through the rain forest

 Day 13: Pixie doing some yoga with Ashley.

Catching Up | Dallas

Ashley and I have been in Dallas for the past 3 weeks. After weather delays in the northeast we are finally able to get home today. Here is just a little recap of everything that we have been up too while we have been in Texas post holiday celebrations!

Mom and I have done a lot of shopping! It's what I do best!

My friend Allix and I went and found the Cupcake ATM at Sprinkles!

We had lunches with friends!

And A LOT of puppy cuddles!

We also had The Wards over for our annual game night!

 And of course lots of coffee runs!

Early morning Whataburger with the pups!

And even some pamper time!

We have had a blast, but Ashley and I are definitely ready to get back to NYC and get back into our routines!

New Years Eve

Happy New Year everyone!!!!
New Years Eve in the Dunn household pretty much changes every year. Some years we have people over, and some years we haven't done anything at all. This year our dad bought us tickets to go see the Dallas stars play. This was my first time at a hockey game, so I was pretty excited. 

 Dad was pretty cold! For some reason he didn't think about the fact that they play on ice!

The Stars won, so it was a successful first game for us!

After the game, we walked out onto Victory Park where the Big D NYE celebration takes place. A band that I love called Green River Ordinance were playing. It was a blast. Dad was still cold, and we still had two hours until midnight, so we decided to head back home!

We ended the night with a Champagne toast at home!

Happy New Year to all of our followers! We can't wait to see what 2014 holds!

2014: A Year of Adventure

We don't love the idea of making resolutions for the new year but we do love the idea of creating a theme for the year. When thinking about what we want 2014 to hold for us I think that "A Year of Adventure" is the perfect motto for us to remember. We'd like to experience more of NYC, seek out new things to try, travel, and be spontaneous.

In the idea of a year filled with adventure we thought it would be fun to share a photo a day for everyday of this year. Here is how it will work- every Wednesday, starting next week, we will share a photo a day from the past 7 days documenting our adventures.

We are both looking forward to what 2014 holds for us and we can't wait to share all of our adventures with all of you.

2013 Recap

As 2013 has come to a close and 2014 begins we wanted to take a moment and look back at some of the wonderful things we did over the past year. We were very blessed with an incredible 2013, so 2014 has a lot to live up to!

In January Shelby started her internship with Jessica Simpson

In February we took a cupcake walking tour and played in the snow in Central Park after a blizzard

In March Ethan came to visit and we went to see Book of Morman on Broadway

In April it was finally warm enough to dine outdoors so we celebrated with brunch at a neighborhood spot and a trip to Central Park

In May Shelby graduated with her Associates degree from FIT. Our parents came in town to celebrate and we had tea at the Plaza Hotel and tons of other adventures around the city

In June Ashley went to the top of the Empire State Building for the first time.

In July Shelby recapped her European adventures in England, France, and Italy

In August we celebrated living together in NYC for one year, made a trip to the beach, and we got locked out of our apartment for a night

In September we took a weekend trip to Washington DC and then we each shared "A Day in the Life" 

In October we spent a fabulous weekend out in the Hamptons and Shelby turned 21!

In November we took a trip to San Fran / Napa Valley and went to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

 In December we enjoyed all of the holiday activities NYC has to offer before heading to Dallas for Christmas.

We were very blessed with an incredible 2013, so 2014 has a lot to live up to!  

Until Next Time
