Weekend Snapshots

Happy Tuesday! My weekend recap is a day late, but it was such an epic one I figured y'all wouldn't mind. As many of you know my best IRL friend, Lauren was a huge catalyst for me launching this blog. Well she and her husband have been working ridiculously hard the last three years to get their law degrees, and on Sunday they received their diplomas and are officially juris doctors! Only three years until I hopefully join them! 

The whole weekend was wonderful. Full of good food and good friends and family. We checked out the Williamsburg farmers market one last time, and of course hit up the cheese shop! If you're ever in Williamsburg you absolutely have to eat there! 

Lauren's little sister Ashley is an aspiring fashion blogger, so we snapped a few shots. How much do you love this sparkly headband?

She's starting her paparazzi skills early in life. 

Ashley prompted me to take a few "model shots" with the kate spade, obviously.

BFF since the millennium! 

After graduation we took a few pictures around the campus. Lauren and Jason's dad's decided to get in a few grad shots too.  

All in all it was a lovely weekend. I just wish my graduation would go ahead and get here! Can I skip the three years in between? ok. Thanks. For more Williamsburg fun, see Lauren's recap here

Happy Monday

Oh do I feel better. It's amazing what a weekend with no stress and good friends can do for your mental well being. As I mentioned before I went to Williamsburg, VA with my two roommates BW and KJ to visit my bff and her wonderful husband. I need to settle on a nickname for her (because she has several: LoPro, LoRay, Lars, LoProRay and the Lawfully wedded wife) but Lauren is a wonderful hostess. After a not so horrible drive down 95 with the obligatory stop at Chick-Fil-A we were greeted by the LWW with a variety of the most amazing individual tartlets. Our options were coconut lemon curd nutella cream. Obviously my obsession with chocolate won out and I opted for the nutella. They were so good.

Saturday was wonderful. We hit up this AMAZING Spanish (as in Spain) food store called La Tienda. I did my study abroad in Spain a few years back, and miss it terribly, so I jump for any opportunity for authentic Spanish food.

They did not disappoint. Amazing olive oils, HUGE wine selections, jamon serrano, machego, and some yummy bread. Unfortunately everything was a tad high for my budget, but I picked up some amazing pimenton which is a smoked Spanish paprika that I can't wait to try out once lent is over.

Then we headed off to Alewerks, a local brewery to do a tasting tour. Day drinking is the best, am I right?
The highlight of the weekend though was finding my new child. I have been rocking a Longchamp for a while now, and I love it. but it was time for a new bag. I'm at a point where I  am spoiled appreciate nice things so I wanted to invest in a bag that I can enjoy for years to come. I've been crushing over a Michael Kors Hamilton.

and a Kate Spade Quinn

but I knew there was an outlet for both in Williamsburg so I was holding out.

After much though, a pre-purchase scouting trip on Saturday I settled on an amazeballs satchel from Kate Spade called the Melinda. I love her so.

  My own personal photographer took a few pictures of me showing it off. For your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
