Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas & New Years filled with all your favorite things, people and puppies!

Chelsea, Jayse & Bella

Jayse and I got a fun surprise in the mail… A GIANT (and very delicious) chocolate and peppermint covered fortune cookie! Love it! Before we devoured it, we took a couple quick photos to share:

Frances & Eddie: We love you guys! Thanks so much for the sweet surprise!

Our little girl’s birthday was today. I can’t believe she’s already 3! Earlier in the day she had some doggie friends come visit, then later we celebrated with presents…

And some treats and delicious birthday cake from Sniffany & Co. Mmmm mmm!

Things got a little messy…

But it was all in good fun and totally worth it to see her happy face!

Allo! Just sending a little update from Paris! So far the trip’s been wonderful. The first night Jayse and I visited with our friend (and fellow photographer) Juliane and her husband for a delicious Parisian style homemade meal of fondue and wine on their candle-lit rooftop. In addition, she gave us a fantastic insider’s tour of the city. We also made new friends with some local newlyweds who we got together with for some dress trashing fun, and took some time to enjoy the slower pace of things here and all the city has to offer. Tomorrow’s our last day in Paris, then we head into Lille, France (an hour north) for Lani & François’s wedding!

I can’t wait to share all the photos and stories from our trip once we return back to Vegas! Until then, here’s a photograph of Jayse and I enjoying the Eiffel Tower. Seeing it in person made me finally get why it’s so famous. Seeing it in the skyline creates an element of romance and magic, and it’s new with each different vantage point.

Big thanks goes to Sophie for taking this of us!

A bientôt! xox Chelsea

I’m heading to bed early tonight to get some good rest before the 5:30am engagement shoot I have in the morning. Yes, a bit early, but totally worth it since at that time – the temperature is still nice across Vegas. But as I’m getting ready to curl up in bed with my two loves, I couldn’t resist sharing some recent photos of my little girl. I love when she’s all tuckered out – usually from playing or from lying in the spot of the floor where the afternoon sun hits; Sometimes she thinks it shines just for her.

So without further ado, here’s one of my favorite things: My sleepy Bella:

I love Dexter. How can you help but be crazy about a show whose main character is a lovable serial killer?

So I’m stoked about the release of the Dexter Season 5 trailer and had share for any fellow fans out there! Warning: It’s intense! I’ll refrain from specific details as to not give spoilers to those that aren’t caught up, but I’m still torn up over the Season 4 ending. It’s funny how attached you get to certain characters over the years. But as much as I wish things were different and that the ending of the last episode could simply be a dream sequence rewinding time, I can tell this next season is going to be KILLER! No pun intended. ;-) I can’t wait for the premiere on September 26th!

Also, I need to think up new decorations for this year’s Dexter party. If anyone has some creative ideas, shoot them my way! Here’s photos from the Season 4 Premiere party Jayse and I put on last year…

The invitation (designed by Jayse):

KILLER Dexter Season IV Premiere Party Invite

Little details:

The Ice Truck Killer’s barbie doll (complete with rainbow-colored painted finger nails)…

Dexter is a blood splatter analyst, so we set our front room up like one of his crime scenes…

And last, there was Bella dressed in her adorable “I love Dexter” shirt…
