Life Lately

My favorite dinner at my Nonnie and Poppy's house. Salmon cakes, cheese grits, peas, and salad fresh from their garden! I went to stay with my grandparents for a few days last week and had a wonderful time.

Outfit for a day at the races. Kimono Jacket: Urban Outfitters, tank top: F21, Jeans: J Brand, Shoes: Aldo from forever ago, Monogram Necklace: Max and Chloe, Watch: Michael Kors, Bag: Louis Vuitton Speedy 35

I quickly switched my shoes out for my gold TB flats and a different bag that would be a little easier to carry. 

We had so much fun with our friends. Hopefully we can make it to the races at least one more time this season!

Reading The Great Gatsby for probably the 100th time. Love this book!

Outfit for a casual Sunday lunch and movie date. Top: the Limited, Jeans: Old Navy, Sandals: Nine West, Kate Spade Mrs. Necklace, Watch: Micheal Kors

Lunch on the patio at ZaZa's. Love their fresh salad and iced tea! Yum!

Finally bought a pink blazer! It made work Monday just a little more bearable. Blazer: Express, Shirt: The Limited, Jeans. SFAM Dojo, Shoes: Gianni Bini

So, we went to see The Hunger Games on Sunday. I really liked it! If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it. A few other things going on around here:
  • Hubby got a promotion!! He actually found out about it in Feb., but didn't get to start until March. I'm so proud of him!
  • I have been having horrible allergies lately. My skin has even been breaking out in hives for the last week or so. Nothing I have done seems to get rid of them! 
  • We are considering finally buying a house soon. Cue nervous breakdown! I am so picky, I don't know how we will ever find a house that I truly love. 
Anyway, we aren't very exciting obviously! Hope everyone is having a good week!

Drinking: V8 V-Fusion + Tea. I honestly have never been much of a juice person until I discovered this. Love it! My favorite is the Raspberry + Green Tea.

Obsessed With: Amazing Grass Green Super Food. I have been adding this green super food powder to my morning juice for the past two months. It gives me amazing energy and I honestly think my skin and hair have looked healthier since I started using it.

On my lips: Clinique Almost Lipstick in Almost Honey This sheer lip color is so pretty and unbelievably hydrating. I can't wait to try out a few more colors this Spring!

Reading: Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin. I wanted to read this before the show aired on ABC last Sunday, but I'm only about a quarter of the way through. I'll do a review when I finish it. 

Hope everyone has a great day!

Q&A Monday


Happy Monday! I decided to participate in Q&A Mondays with Pretty in Pink Megan and Shasta Anne this week. 

I'm not really in to making a vlog so I'm just going to answer the questions the old school way:

1. If you were in a pageant and had to perform a talent, what would it be? 

Um... dancing?? Maybe?? Not really sure on that one!

2. What is your biggest beauty-related regret? (mall bangs, biker shorts, bronzer overload, etc)

In junior high I had a thing for pastel eye shadow. Blue, purple, green, you name it and I wore it. Add copious amounts of body glitter and my stick straight hair and I was hot stuff! Another one in my more grown up life was probably the game day make up I had to wear as a college cheerleader. Lots of purple eye shadow and red lipstick. Go Bears! Ugh.... so bad. 

3. Do you have a celebrity look-alike?

I've heard Lauren Conrad but I don't really think I have one though. 

4. What is your natural hair color?

Dark brown believe it or not. Really dark. I've kept it on the blonde side for a good ten years now. I'm starting to play with going dark again by doing the ombre thing. Not really sure how I feel about it. 

5. Ever met a celebrity? 

Does Carrot Top count? I met him while eating dinner in Vegas last year. I've met Scottie Pippen a time or two. I saw George Clooney filming a movie in Vegas, but didn't get to actually meet him sadly.Kris Allen (American Idol winner. I cheered with his brother in college) I think that's it...

6. Fave/least fave housewife from any of the Real Housewives shows on BRAVO?

I love Kyle Richards on RHOBH and I hate Tamera on RHOOC

7. Workout regimen? 

I usually do cardio 4 times a week for about 20-30 minutes and I do strength training 3 times a week. I'm wanting to add some yoga in there soon and maybe knock off a day of cardio. I don't need to lose any weight at all. I just like to maintain where I'm at, stay toned, and keep my heart healthy. 

8. Dream gift?

Right now a new car. Are you reading this Hubby?! 

9. Are you a good/bad cook?

I'm not really in to cooking. I'm not necessarily bad at it, I just don't like doing it. Luckily, I have a great husband who enjoys cooking and he takes care of it most of the time. I do love to bake though! It's so relaxing for me.

10. What is your favorite food?

Oh that's hard... I think I would have to say spaghetti. I don't know why, but I could honestly eat it every day. Blueberries are my second favorite food.

Have a good Monday ya'll!!

TGIF!! This week was a long one for me. I don't know if I have ever been so happy to see the weekend. We did, however, have a fun night out last night for the Jimmy Buffett concert in Little Rock. The hubs and I may have been the youngest people there but we still had a blast!

Shirt: Old Navy, Jeans: J Brand, Shoes: Tory Burch, Necklace via local boutique, Watch: Michael Kors, Clutch: Tory Burch

With my Mom, Step-dad, and hubby

My parents friends joined us too! 

I'm not going to lie, those middle age Parrotheads know how to have a good time! My parents and their friends were cracking us up. The couple sitting behind us at the concert were probably in their 70s and they were dancing in the aisle! The people in front of us were in elaborate pirate costumes! I wish I could have gotten a picture of them. They were way into the whole thing. I would definitely go to another Buffett concert if I have the chance. It's an experience for sure.

We have a low key weekend planned and I am so thankful! Have a good one ya'll!
