The Boston Terrier Monster Mash

It’s not a typical holiday card, but it is definitely one that their friends/family will remember!! Enjoy the transformation of Nigel the Boston Terrier into Nigel-stein, Melinda as Mom of Nigel-Stein, and Joe as the Mad Scientist!!

Boston Terrier Frankenstein Mad Scientist, better ask my mama how to make a monster,

Melinda & Joe are fans of The Cramps, a psychobilly band, and the phrase was inspiration from the song Creatures From The Black Lagoon.  

They didn’t start out as monsters though, the transformation began with stylist Tisha Arterberry helped Melinda with her hair raising 1960s hive before taking family photos amongst the beautiful roses in their community garden. Then with a touch of digital artwork magic they turned from Sweet and innocent by day into Monster Mash by night.

Happy Engagement Anniversary Celestina May & Rip!

Almost exactly 1 year ago these two love birds we’re in engagement bliss; he asked and of course she said yes!! Drinks all around and let the wedding planning begin!! Little did they know that was just the beginning of an adventurous year for the two of them.

They also decided if wedding planning was in the air, house hunting would be fun too. They found the cutest mid-century rambler in East San Diego County. Perfect with a swimming pool out back, an in-home hair salon room for Celestina to work her vintage hair styling magic, a music room for Rip to meditate to some vinyl, and a little tiki waterfall perfect to accompany a cigar in celebration of the fun event planning.

It also doubles as the perfect place for these two to jam out together with their many musical and performing talents. No really, they both play instruments and sing for real. As a matter of fact Rip is part of a fantastic band called Amalgamated Ska based in San Diego … click here to check out one of their performances on YOU TUBE

They have the most adorable kitchen with real vintage appliances (mostly, ignore the coffee maker) and fabulous 1950’s atomic dishes. The kitchen even comes with an in-wall ironing board to iron all of Celestina’s Cuties For A Cause shirts…and perfect for a naughty dog to play in too.

No family is complete without some kind of furry four-legged child and they were absolutely the luckiest couple ever to have found Dexter. He is the brightest, happiest, most well behaved little dog a couple could ask for.

Dexter has learned so many tricks, he is potentially already surpassing their friends level of card playing…don’t tell them.

The best part about this house is the couple who occupies it! If nothing else, just hanging out and being silly together at home is all they really need to be happy.

… the kind of love where movie nights in their PJ’s is the definition of a perfect evening.
