Metallic Shorts


 ^^SWEATER: Gap / SHORTS: Nordstrom / SUNNIES: Nordstrom


^^Such a little beach bum


^^Not sure if you can see Chauncey’s fur too clearly but when he gets wet the fur on his ears and around his head gets perfectly crimped!! It is too funny! People at the beach kept asking me if I crimp his hair haha (no I do not!!)


^^David was fishing on shore and caught a reef shark!!! It took him probably 40 minutes to reel it in because it was so heavy! Everyone on the beach was asking if he just had seaweed stuck to his line… nope just a casual SHARK! There are little herds of them.. apparently they are harmless but it is still scary enough for me to not go in the water, I am a complete wuss.IMG_3065IMG_2889IMG_3012

^^By the end of the day Chauncey was SOOO tired!! We could not even get him to stand up to walk to the car haha he would take a step and then lay back down and fall asleep haha David had to carry him to the car


^^Haha how great is this picture? Chauncey loves to get wet, roll around in the sand, and then immediately shake it all offIMG_3008IMG_3109

Okay I know that was SOO many pictures, my goodness! Hopefully you didn’t completely tune out :) David, Chauncey and I have been having so much fun in California! Could you even believe that shark that David caught? I more-so can’t believe that those are just sitting right by the shore line! Yikes.

These metallic shorts totally remind me of Zenon Girl of the 21st Century! Please tell me you were born in the 90′s and remember that Disney movie? And when they go hunting for metallic scraps to make that little doll of the singer? Haha that was such a classic movie in my household. Zetus lupetus! (Yes I had to google how to even spell that! I have been saying it seedus lupeedus my whole life)

Anyways, David is leaving me tomorrow to go to Montana on a guys trip and I am headed to San Clemente to do some camping on the beach with some of my family and relatives! I hope you guys are having a great summer!! Are any of you staying out of the sun and sticking to spray tans like me? Ah it is hard! It will pay off though :) AND don’t forget to enter the giveaway in yesterday’s post to win a pair of Ray Ban’s!!!!

      Wish you were here!!!!! And that wink was to you I hope you know. The hand little gun click and hair flip were silent but obviously intended. Love you.

    I have a golden retriever and her fur does the same thing when it gets wet! So adorable!! I love seeing all these pictures of Chauncey.

    • amber June 19, 2013 at 7:27 am Permalink

      Shut up?! That is so funny!!! Maybe it is common in Golden’s?! I had no idea I think it is so cute though haha

      • Kristie Pettipas June 19, 2013 at 12:00 pm Permalink

        I think it’ common for a lot of dogs. I say this because it happens to my longhaired miniature dachshund every single time I give her a bubble bath. Adorable no matter what breed though!

    Ok seriously these are the cutest pictures ever! I love the metallic shorts!!! I know I say this every time but Chauncey is so cute love the picture where he is shaking off the water. I can’t believe someone asked you if you crimp his fur? Hmmm!! That’s great that David caught that shark I can’t believe how big that thing is!!

    P.s I entered into the Ray Ban giveaway yesterday :)

    Sincerely Miss Ash

    Aw Chauncey is so adorable, he’s getting so big! The beach looks beautiful and so fun. I died when you mentioned Zenon, that was totally my favorite movie back in the day! Zoom zoom zoom! :) love your blog as always Amber!!

    • amber June 19, 2013 at 7:30 am Permalink

      Haha best movie!!! And I know ah he really is getting so big its crazy!! Love you girl!

  12. sam June 19, 2013 at 7:06 am Permalink

    Why was my comment deleted? and the comment put up about trolls?

    I was just joking around – I thought it was in good fun.

    How does “get your celine off the sand you’re giving me a heart attack!” translate to troll and rude? Sorry if I offended you – I was just playing around – honest.

  13. sam June 19, 2013 at 7:07 am Permalink

    I’m a huge fan of yours – I would never troll your website or say something intentionally rude or mean

    • amber June 19, 2013 at 7:24 am Permalink

      Sam, I am so sorry last night when I was making the post I anticipated someone making a comment about it, (because it is kind of ridiculous to have a Celine on the freaking sand! And there are people who troll around blogs) so that was probably me just jumping the gun and assuming you were being rude when you were just joking around! I don’t want any of my readers to feel like they can’t joke around and sometimes it is hard to tell ‘tone’ on here!! Thanks for clarifying :) you seem so sweet!

      • sam June 19, 2013 at 7:27 am Permalink

        It’s no problem at all- I’m sorry to have caused the confusion. I actually love a person who can LIVE in their fashion and not hyperventilate if a scratch happens. Taking a Celine to the beach is actually tres chic!

        • amber June 19, 2013 at 7:32 am Permalink

          Well thanks girl!!! That really is so sweet of you! I think it was still too early in the morning when I saw that original comment haha so I apologize again! Hope you have a good day and thanks for commenting xo

  14. Adrienne June 19, 2013 at 8:35 am Permalink

    Those shorts are amaaaaazing!!
    That shark thing is crazy scary though! I would definitely be avoiding the water as well! Harmless or not…Yikes!!

    You had me at Zenon with this post. Haha. Also, I’m trying to make myself believe that shark was not real, because I can’t even handle that!

    • amber June 19, 2013 at 12:12 pm Permalink

      Haha glad you are a fellow Zenon lover. And I know huh?! I seriously don’t know if I will be able to go in the ocean again!!

  16. Alex Cowley June 19, 2013 at 10:16 am Permalink

    Amber you literally have the most perfect body and such a gorgeous contagious smile, you seriously need to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel!! All of these Picts from the last few posts are amazing!! Especially the gatsby party, to die for!! Love it

    • amber June 19, 2013 at 12:13 pm Permalink

      Umm you are the sweetest person ever!! I wish!!! But thanks that just made my day! I think the same things about YOU! Next time you are on the west coast we should go on a double date!

    Born before the 90′s and I still loved that movie. What can I say – I was NOT cool in high school ;)

    I have a newfoundland and his ear hair gets crimpy like that too when he’s wet. It just cracks me up. Chauncey is living every dog’s dream right now!!

    • amber June 19, 2013 at 12:14 pm Permalink

      Haha I don’t blame you I probably would have too!! :) and no way?! That is so funny!! I guess it is a common thing then! I had no idea haha I thought it was so dang cute though!
