Okay, another movie reference.. But I can’t pass up the perfect chance to wear pink! It’s Wednesday on the tenth year anniversary of the movie that is a huge staple in this generation (in my opinion) & it’s none other than Mean Girls! I had to honor the fabulous movie that even ten years later we’re all still quoting. Pretty sure fetch happened!

Groundbreaking

There’s nothing I’m more into lately than florals. I mean it’s spring! Groundbreaking, right? (Please tell me you got the Devil Wears Prada reference) Of course, paired with all black this made for a perfect outfit for me. Within the last year my closet went from only a few black pieces to now I think more than half. The color truly is timeless.. I keep seeing this around and it’s totally me: “I’ll stop wearing black the day they make a darker color.” I also paired my blazer with a more relaxed outfit. I love switching up items in my closet so the jeans + white button up outfit has more of a spring ring to it!

Easter Love

Almost our whole friend group was complete to attend mass together only to find out there wasn’t one!

Okay.. This blue door!

 

I had such a nice relaxing weekend! Unlike the past few, we didn’t do much at all. I got to watch my niece and nephew play in their soccer games and I attempted to attend mass with my friends only to find out it wasn’t being held at that time! It was still nice that all of us were able to get together on such a great holiday!

Easter time is the best, I love spending time with my family & friends! I’m especially thankful for those around me. โค๏ธ

It sure flies..

We went to Kennedy’s baby blessing and I didn’t bring anything to wear, thank goodness my mom has cute dresses!

I can’t believer how the last weeks have gone by so quickly! Even at work time flies (for the most part) and it’s a little scary! I’m always looking forward to the weekend and right as it comes it goes by that much quicker. I’m so thankful for having such a great group of people I can call my friends & family that I always have so much fun with ๐Ÿ™‚ Besides that, I’m totally swooning over the weather, it is perfect! I love summer but I’m overly sensitive to heat so this is the best time of the year in my opinion!

Week Recap

Jon & I got to Sandy earlier than everyone else and there was a Target close by so I got party hats!

They gave him this hat and this grass skirt so he could dance while they sang happy birthday! He’s got the moves!20140409-213147.jpg
Jon saw this sign and he’s like “Hey do you want a picture with that?” I knew it was only because he wanted one too haha

So here’s his, he was so excited ๐Ÿ˜‰

I wasn’t kidding about that dance party, we had to improvise with our disco ball since we didn’t have a spotlight haha

We were early for our reservation to the crater so we took pictures at the top. It was FREEZING that day!

I am obsessed with reading blogs! At work I have a considerable amount of downtime (on most days) and I find myself lost in blogs, whether it be a fashion blog or someone writing about their journey through life – I’m hooked! It’s honestly amazing to me how people just share a piece of their life in their little corner of the internet. I’m so happy I’ve finally started one!

Anyway, quick recap of my week last Thursday was my dad’s birthday! We ate at Joe’s Crab Shack and I got this thing that was like bacon wrapped fish and this giant lobster with it. I might be a little allergic to shellfish because my throat and tongue itch uncontrollably everytime I eat it and I always forget until it’s happening. This never happens with shrimp though which I always eat and this “allergy” is pretty new because I don’t remember it being like this before. I love seafood though so whatevs! We were eating in front of a movie theater and Jon saw that there was a showing for Captain America so we went and saw it.. I hate staying up late when I have work the next day (you can call me Grandma) but I went for it anyway. I love Marvel movies and this one was no different! What’s not to love about Chris Evans?! Friday we didn’t really do anything. Saturday I think I slept more than I should have and I’m not guilty! Haha it’s only once in awhile now that I can sneak a nap in during the day ๐Ÿ˜‰ that night we had an early birthday celebration for my mom/farewell to our friends that are interns here. It was really fun! We had a “boodle/budol” (not sure the correct spelling is) but you’ll have to see the pictures! Haha you would have to be comfortable eating with your hands and okay with everyone touching food with their bare hands. See below for pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰ I promise it’s normal and food tastes like 100x better. There were so many of us at my house that and we had a dance party haha I loved it! Sunday we didn’t have much planned since we knew everyone would be out from the party we had the night before so everyone got off to a late start. I like to enjoy every moment of my weekend so I told my sister let’s go do something. I’ve never been to the crater in Midway and I’ve lived so close to it for ten years so we decided to go. Of course we brought the entire crew with us, like I said it’s the ending of their internship so now they get to do the fun stuff (ex. Moab last week :)) we went and itย was great! It’s a little creepy how you can’t see the bottom though and the fact that we’re inside of a crater! I’m secretly afraid of water. But I guess that is now no secret haha. Monday and Tuesday were just work and school days. And today! It’s my mom’s birthday! We actually just got home from dropping her off at the airport, she’s going to the Philippines for three weeks! I’m so jealous! Me and her have gone every two years and the last time I went was in 2012 so this is the first time I’m missing it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’m hoping to go on a fun trip before the end of this year though!

Some Hunter Inspiration

These metallic ones are gorgeous! I would hunt them down if they were gold for sure!

I probably won’t wear a suit with my Hunter’s but how weird is this? Haha I don’t love Chuck Bass any less for this outfit though ๐Ÿ˜‰

These were the two times I wore them in New York! They were comfy & kept my feet warm! Even without the wellies.

So I bought Hunter boots a little over a month ago for my trip to New York and I’m obsessed! They are so comfortable, cute AND functional. It’s hard to find all three in one! Who can agree with me? I had debated back & forth on whether or not I needed them but the first time I went to NYC I didn’t have comfortable shoes so I knew these would be a good investment! I had read reviews upon reviews about them on Nordstrom.com and one thing about me is that I hate purchasing anything online! I feel like if it’s leaving my bank account then I should have the item in my hands! Haha, I’ve never gotten the whole online shopping craze! The wait time drives me nuts. Ok, to get to the point of my post I’m on Pinterest right now looking for more outfit ideas to wear with my Hunter’s since it is now Spring and I’m needing a little outfit inspiration with my go-to rain boots ๐Ÿ™‚
