Yes, I'm a house stalker.... :)

So as you all know, the hubby and I spent a wonderful weekend at our sweet little place in Dana Point, CA:) I thought I'd give you a little glimpse into what kinds of crrrrazy stuff we do:) ok, I'm sooo kidding. We do the same thing EVERY time we're there. It starts with a trip to Starby's for some lattes then we do our stalker drive bys and check out our favorite houses:) This time I took my camera along:)

I love this house. So crispy white, and I love the garage doors:)

Ok, this house is enormous. Like it takes up 2 lots. Love the color and all that white trim:)

This house is brand new. Again, so crisp. It's a bluff house so I'm sure the views are amazing:)

I L-O-V-E this house!! It's my second fav:) oh yes, there's a cuter one that steals my heart:)

I love the deck on this house:) and check out the creepy Amittyville Horror house windows on that house in the back! GEEET OUUUUT!!! So I did.

And here she is. Numero uno. First Place. Blue Ribbon. My fav house ever. I love absolutely everything about this beauty:)

I reeeally want this cutest house. Look at the chippy white paint on those dormers:) And it's so tiny and adorable. Like a mini cupcake:)

After driving around and feasting on all that eye candy, I came home and put the ole Whirley Pop to use:) It's popcorn old school. I love hearing the sound of that sizzling oil, and then cranking that little handle until the last little kernel is popped.

Then butter. Real butter. Lots of real butter.

I hardly ever drink soda, but my son was at the house last and left this little gem in the fridge for me. Perf combination:) And Mad Men. Oh my. My sister gave me seasons 1,2 and 3 forever ago and I just now started to watch them. Like it was a Mad Men Marathon all weekend:) That show left me wanting to drink whisky and smoke, and wear tight sweaters.... :)

And there you have it. Oh the exciting life I lead... :) 


  1. Those houses have alot of curb appeal. I really like the one that is your favorite too! I've never watched Mad Men before. That's probably shocking to some. Glad you were able to enjoy your weekend with good popcorn and good shows to watch. That's always fun.

  2. It's the little things for sure!!!

    Happy v-day,

  3. Oh Gosh Dorie, those houses are adorable! It's so not fair how everything grows so easily and beautifully in Cali! I would love to be able to grow some of the beautiful plants and flowers that they can there. But, sadly I'm stuck with bouganvilla, geraniums and roses. I guess I should be grateful .... It could be worse!
    Happy Valentine's Day <3

  4. sounds like you are living a paradise! my mom and I house-stalk on the East coast... totally different look to them! love all the houses at Dana Point.... and your yummy little snack- nothing so satisfying! :)
    happy <3 Day!


  5. Thanks for taking me along so I could house stalk too! What a dreamy neighborhood....I love every single house! *sigh* I haven't had popcorn made like that in years!
    Happy Valentine's Day :o)

    PS. I am now following you on Google...hope you
    will follow me back :o)

  6. You should cross the bridge and stalk some of the houses in Coronado, CA sometime! Equally adorable! I dream of having one someday ...


  7. I'm a self-confessed house stalker too. Only, I have been known to climb through windows, pull up garage doors, go through an open back door to see the inside. Note: these houses were not owner-occupied. California looks so beautiful! I absolutely love that last house, so much charm.
