15 Dec

Have you ever wanted to just pick up your life and move somewhere unexpected? Or make plans to do something…and actually do it? To make good on a promise or a want you have wanted forever? I admire people who can do all of these things. The ones who make a list of things they want to do, or places they want to do and make good on those ideas. These people are icons, for the sheer reason of they do what they want. I LOVE that. I have my own bucket list, and hope one day I can cross every single one off. Here are a couple of my items to check off:

What are some of y’alls bucket list items…I would love to add to mine!

Christmas Cheer

12 Dec

“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear”. Oh Buddy you got it right. Whatever holiday you celebrate during this lovely month, do it BIG and Loud.

Carolers at work, I thought this was so cool!!

 I absolutely love this time of year. I could do without the wishy-washy weather of Georgia but other than that I am a huge fan of everything Christmas.

What is making this year’s Christmas even better when celebrating/decorating/cooking…Pinterest!!

24 Nov

This past weekend we decided to recreate thanksgiving, friends style. We put our Seth Cohen hats on a created our own super holiday, a la Christmukkah, and called it Friendsgiving.(okay, maybe not quite as creative as Seth’s, but that is quite a tall order!??)

One of our big ideas for this uber holiday, was that we would take pictures of ourselves, since we are absolutely horrible at doing so. We did not succeed.

However, there are tons of pictures of the food!!!

Oh, and in a battle of the sexes game of Pictionary….the girls kicked some tail!!

Hope everyone is having a great holiday week!

The Bridges “Pieces”  My friend Alyse has been talking about The Bridges for a very long time now and I have finally listened to her and jamming this one.

Demi Lovato “Lightweight”  I just love her and her triumph over the past year.

Boyce Avenue “Fast Car”  I love the original Tracy Chapman version but my boyfriend has introduced me to Boyce Avenue so I am on a roll with them.

Hello All,

Since I am working in the corporate world there is nothing that makes me happier than FRIDAY (friday friday gotta get down on friday). What makes my day go by faster…music! So here are a few jams streaming through my comupter right now.

Not only does Adele have the voice to give you chills, she is also absolutely stunning! Did anyone see her performance this year at the VMA’s? There are few people that can pull of standing on a stage with just a piano and a voice.

And just because I love me some Prince…don’t judge.

This is just because I am a bit corny and also because who doesn’t love the 90’s!

Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to set your clocks back! Woo for an extra hour added to our weekend!


Another bestie.

Katie. What can I say about this girl. I don’t think I have ever met someone who is so much like me and completely different all at the same time. I guess that is what you get when you mix a Biology major and a Communications major and say….BE FRIENDS. But nevertheless she has grown to be one of my bestest best friends who has the uncanny ability to make just about any situation an absolute blast. Always there with some sort of opinion on just about anything you say, do or think. She might be a bit psychic, I’m convinced. Her love of food and cooking has, unfortunately, rubbed off on me. I am now cooking meals occasionally that take more than a max of 7 minutes to make, which is a HUGE deal. She is definitely my go-to girl for too many things, and soon I am sure she will be yours too!

one bestie.

When I first met Emily it was at a friend gathering and when she walked in I first noticed she was dressed extremely well. This hasn’t changed in the three years that we have known each other. I personally was in a fashion slump and I credit my now love of being current with what I wear to her. She has that effect on people I think…inspiring others to dress their best! She comes from a family where the girls are in the majority so I guess you can say she was born to love style. The girl owns more fashion magazines than Target has on their rack and looks forward to that September issue to come out in May.

You will see as the posts start piling up how much love she has for everything fabulous and how unbelievably chic she really is! She is also an excellent writer with an instinct that can’t be taught. She is great at listening and giving advice in all aspects of life, not just fashion.
