A weekend woops....

So, y'all were supposed to get a weekend recap today, but funny story. I told my roommate my phone password to check something while we were driving. Then she decided to break into my phone while we were out at a bar and began to read my texts. Ha. No ma'am. So I immediately snatched the phone from her and changed my password.

Well guess who forgot her new password? Yep. That would be me. Needless to say I had to reset my phone and lost everything (except for my contacts backed up in the cloud, thank the lord). So... no pictures to go with a recap, and we all know that's no fun.

I did get some gallivanting in the cherry blossoms accomplished though. Yay for springtime finally being here!

So I'll be back later this week with more antics. Hope y'all had a great one!

Friday Fancies: Polka Dot Love

This week's Friday's Fancies focuses on one of my all time favorite patterns, the polka dot! I was going to try and create an outfit for you guys, but a look full of polka dots seemed a bit absurd. So this a board of some polka dot pieces I'm loving this spring.

Polka Dot Love

Marchesa polka dot dress / R k originals dress / Polka dot blouse / TOMS red shoes / Kate Spade patent leather bag / Betsey Johnson white watch / Betsey Johnson post earrings / Kate Spade wool shawl

So, what do you think? I'm kind of obsessed with the new Marchesa line at JCP. Have y'all checked it out yet? The black dress is one of my favorites for sure. I am loving the subtle polka dot mesh neckline.

Plus I'm pretty sure I'm going to add those TOMS to my collection.

Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! I'm going to be hanging out with the crew. #dcCallie is here and team lawfully wedded wife is coming to. DC's not ready for us, that I can promise you.

Cocktail Hour: Cherry Bloom

Guess what? The Cherry Blossoms have finally decided to start blooming! Yay! They should start peaking in a few days, and since I'll have quite a few visitors in town this weekend I'm sure we'll do our best to get out and explore! To celebrate, I'm going to make a few of these concoctions this weekend to celebrate all the pink prettiness around town! 

The Cherry Bloom
This couldn't be simpler, and if you like sweet cocktails, this one is right up your alley! Get excited!

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 TBSP grenadine (or cherry juice)
  • Club Soda (or try sprite/ginger ale)
  • Mint and Cherry for garnish

In a tall glass full of ice combine vodka and grenadine syrup. Top with soda, then garnish.

And you're done. It's perfectly pink, and can easily be adjusted to your preferred level of sweetness.

Five Things

Obviously this little game of tag has been floating all over the blog world for a few weeks now, but who doesn't like to learn more about the girl behind the blog?  Alissa and Shannon both tagged me last week, so here we go...

1. I'm a texture freak. I cannot stand something if it as a strange texture. It's mostly a food thing: grapes HAVE to be hard, peaches have to be super soft, tomatoes are terrifying (I've only been able to eat raw tomatoes in the last year). But then I also get the same way about fabric: sheets and bedding? Have to be super soft and smooth right out of the pack.

2. Mayonnaise grosses me out more than I can handle. I like both ingredients in Mayo, so one would think I'd like the stuff. But there's just something about that thick gloppy cream that just freaks me out. I made deviled eggs for Easter this weekend, and normally I would use Greek yogurt for creaminess (it's great I promise), but I was out. Literally the only thing in my fridge was mayo. So I used as little as humanly possible. Then I tasted one. They were great, but I just couldn't bring myself to eat them because I knew they were "packed" with mayo. eww... so gross.

3. I'm addicted to sleeping. I really am starting to think it's a problem. I really think I need 10 hours a night. But I just don't have that much time in my day. I've tried cutting down caffeine, upping my exercise, shutting down all electronics before bed. Nothing works. 8 hours is just not enough. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

4. I'm messy. Like my room is never clean. I've improved significantly in recent years, and am generally able to contain my mess to my own room (though my roommates may tell you otherwise). I've come to terms with the fact that my vanity will never ever be clean, but my bedroom also doubles as my closet (DC living) so clothes just seem to end up all over the place!

5. I'm terrified of law school. The scary amount of work-- like 12+ hour days every days for the next three years? eek.  Getting caught unprepared in class and looking like an idiot in front of my soon-to-be-peers? inevitable but still not fun. Oh and then there's the amount of debt this is going to put me in. I'm definitely not one to live beyond my means, so living more or less on loans for the next three years is making me sick.

I  tag Jessica (but she posted her 5 today already), Betsy, Nicole, Sara and Jenn.
