everything elephant.

it's no secret that i love elephants. my love for elephants began when my grandma dallyne gave me an elephant figurine from one of her trips out of the country. i was just a little girl then.  i got to ride one in oregon when i was19 years old. it was one of my life dreams. i have elephant things from all over the world in my apartment. i am sure it drives sean nuts, but i can't help it! they are so cute! here are some cute pics..

animal cookies. because i like elephants and cookies.


look how happy that elephant looks. look! look again.



just a kid and his baby elephant..





i want to hang his up in my house somewhere.
maybe in a nursery someday if we ever have offspring.




if an elephant can play soccer? anyone can.

just chillin with my elephant.



i would love this on a t-shirt!



this is my current screensaver....



bahhh!! i just love them.

for our wedding cake, sean ordered some glass elephants from russia.
my friend lee decorated them as a bride and groom and put them
on our cake! she did such a great job. i love them so much!




oh, this reminds me, we got married 10 months ago from today!  :)




honestly, if i could adopt an elephant i would. i am dead serious.
remember when bart got an elephant on the simpsons?

it can totally happen in real life. right?

you are the sweetest! thanks so much for the well wishes. :)

i love elephants, too!
when i was little i collected them, too.
but, i don't anymore. still love them tho!
all of those elephant pictures are adorable.
i especially love the kurt halsey art. :)

elephants are so super neat.
like how they've been studied and found that they really remember their families and places.
and things like that.
i think it's so cool.

What a cute idea for a blog post! I have an elephant necklace, although all your lovely photos are making me want to invest in some more elephant-related pieces!

I adore elephants, too. They're so beautiful and so smart, what's not to love? My aunt introduced me to this site a few years ago, and it's so touching it always makes me want to cry. http://www.elephants.com

Your elephant cake toppers were such a good idea. I'm always telling my husband that I wish we could have a wedding redo so I could get more creative. I should have had a bird bride and groom!

Randi Lee said...

Chloe! You look like a freaking model in your wedding pic!

Elephants are adorable! I love the little boy with his little elephant! So cute!

Ams said...

Ummmmm I am deathly afraid of elephants!!!! EEEEEEEEK! I know. I don't know why. But they freak me out.
The cake topper is stinkin' cute though... what a great idea. And so thoughtful :)
I'm going to work on my elephant phobia ok?!

My sister, Kami collects elephants. I love it because I always buy them when I see one (whatever it is) and save it for her birthday or Christmas It makes it really nice for the gift buyer, when people have collections. And elephants are a cute facination.

samnhal said...

I like elephants too, but not quite that much. I'm pretty much an all over animal lover. I rode an elephant too when I was little! It was in Arizona and it was awesome. P.S. I love that picture from your wedding. Happy 10 months!

Allison said...

AHH! I like the piano-playing elephants! :D

jackiek said...

I WANT AN ELEPHANT TOO. no joke, the boy and the elephant might just be the cutest thing ever. so adorable.

happy 10 months :)

Elizabeth Marie said...

There IS something about elephants, right?! Totally the gentle giant thing.

OMG that wedding picture...wow. GORGEOUS. GORGEOUS!!

Miss you love, been mia, but I'm back, mostly. haha I hope all is well.

Rasha said...

Elephants rock, seriously...

and omg, your wedding picture is to die for... your so gorgeous.

Happy 10 month sweetie!

Nahl said...

hahah, this is so cute!
For some reason, the only word I think of when I think of elephants is "dumb". I don't know why...maybe it's cuz I read too many of those Dumbo The Elephant books when I was a child!
Anyway, congrats again on the anniversary. Two months left for the big one year.

Found your blog through 20SB - love it!

I also love elephants. Hubby and I are huge Bama fans - so we love elephants. You should definitely hang that adoreable picture in a nursery one day. :)

my name is lauren. said...

the kid with his elephant is my favorite. there was a baby elephant at the oregon zoo (well...still is... but i'm not sure how much of a baby he is now since i'm not sure how quikly they grow) that we saw with our class this last summer. so cute!

The Socialite said...

You got to ride on an elephant?! You're so gangsta. ;)

These pictures are so cute! Love em. :)I heard having elephant figurines with their trumpets up in the air signifies good luck! :)

Sara-Jane Elizabeth said...

I am so jealous that you got to ride an elephant. SO JEALOUS. My mom got to, like, 20 years ago. I found the pictures in an old album and I was was like "WHAAAT!?!" Needless to say, I love elephants. My granny does, too.

Kimbirdy said...

Elephants are my favorite too!! Although I've never gotten to meet one in real life, just staring dreamily from afar at the zoo. You're one lucky lady!

Sam said...

okay, so I wasn't reading what you wrote and got to your wedding pic, but didn't realize it was you and just thought it was another pic and just stared at it for what feels like the longest time trying to figure out where the elephant was in the picture. then i figured it out. anyway, i love all the elephants and you look gorgeous in your wedding pic :)

Michelle said...

.... I think I just fell in love with elephants too. Not that I didn't like them before, and I probably don't love them as much as you, but love is love.

PS. The elephants on your wedding cake is such a cute idea!

Cute video! Ha ha ha. Honestly- I have a fear of the big elephants. When I was in elementary school we took a field trip with my class to the zoo. And they gave us all bags of treats. When we were visiting the elephants, one came super close to me- stuck its trunk out- started sucking on my hand and stole my bag of goodies! I was bawling. Ever since- I have been terrified. The baby ones are cute tho. Oh and ps- i have a graphic designer friend that I bet would make that t-shirt for you with that awesome picture.

Tara Long said...

Elephants ARE cute. I especially love the idea of doing a nursery theme with those super cute pictures. I love it!

Selma said...

You and my mom would have fun together! She's obsessed with elephants. She loves them to death, and has a mass collection of them around the house. I have to admit, they are all super cute. Especially the little (live) ones. I want to hug them, and pet them and all. Super adorable. :) Awwww....

Michael & Mindy said...

The one with the little boy and the baby elephant is my very fave.

Morgan said...

I'm crazy about elephants too! My first stuffed animal was a blue elephant and I've never looked back! :)
Loving your blog!
