{day 13} Favorite Books

 Your 5 Favorite Books 

I read Animal Vegetable Miracle in college and it completely changed the way I thought about food. Honestly I knew things had a "season" but I don't know that I could have necessarily told you that asparagus typically "bloom" in March, or that onions are in season in the summer. These foods are always in the grocery store... so they're always "in season." This book really makes you reconsider your dietary choices, and the benefits of eating locally. 

I know everyone and their sister loves The Help. I'm no exception. I was a little dissappointed by the movie, but that's just because the book was that good. 

I finally picked up Tina Fey's book when I was in Ohio. I read the whole thing in two sittings. It's hilarious. I love her. 

Who didn't love the hunger games? I couldn't put down the series once I started. SO intense. LOVED it. 

This book really changed my life. In fact, I may read it again. It inspired my {25 before 25} project, and really just made me evaluate. I seriously think you should all go out and buy this book RIGHT now. Seriously. Go. I'll be here when you get back.

I know I've talked about it before, but I'm addicted to Lip gloss. I just counted and I have 22 various lip products in my purse. Ridiculous I know.

Day 3 and The Birthday Party

Happy Monday! Before I update y'all on my jam packed weekend let's get to know me better with day 3 of the....

a picture of you as a child

I know. I was so cool right? The hipster bangs. The sun glasses. The red boots. I mean. I couldn't be any cooler. 

There are some awesome ladies out there who are also doing the challenge, if you're participating will you please send me a link to your post and I'll make sure to give you a shout out!

Check out Emily and Sarah Elizabeth and Mree

Now, I wanted to thank you all again for your help last week. The party went well, and I think my minimalist decorations were a hit!

We did a full bar with some DIY signature cocktails. We had lots of fun making simple syrups and thinking of cute names for drinks! Then I made these, and omg y'all. they were SO good. 

We opted not to get a tree this year, but we hung up lots of lights in front of the window and it's so pretty. 

I also neglected to take a picture (I know-- blogger fail), but I made this super cute polka dot banner that we ran all over the house. It was SO easy and took maybe 30 minutes to put the whole thing together. I promise I'll post a picture tomorrow--- and take you through it. So fun.

Oh. Of course there were drinking games played. Beer Pong and Flip Cup at at 25 year old's Birthday Party is totally acceptable right?
