Wandering through the Weekend

As I said in my last post (salmon vodka, anyone?), Friday night, Nate had a couple friends over to play Axis and Allies.

I spent my night doing laundry, catching up on shows, and killing time online.  One of the more fun things I found was from a post on Keep Warm about Jeff Silverman, a company that lets you design your own shoe.  I'm not a big shoe person, but that's because I can never find something I really like or can justify buying.   I probably spent a couple hours Friday night and Saturday morning (while watching the Kardashians) designing the perfect yellow wedge.  Next time I have money, I'm totally buying it.  I'll have to do a post about it later if I actually have it made.

I also found out that my grandmother booked their timeshare for a friend and me to use while we're in Orlando Memorial Day weekend.  We'll be staying at the Wyndam Bonnet Creek Resort and hitting up the new Harry Potter attraction at Universal Islands of Adventure, among other things.  I'm soooo excited!

Saturday afternoon, I headed to Lindsey of PsychoBabble's son's 1st birthday party, which was Dr. Seuss themed.  Although Stephen didn't care much for opening presents, it was so cute watching him eat his cake.  By the end of it, he looked like Santa Claus with a frosting beard.  He's adorable!

By the time I got home, a few friends were over for Nate's birthday weekend celebration part two.  We all enjoyed some amazing wine and pizza while playing cribbage and Sequence.  And since we were playing games, there were more than a few times when we quoted Charlie Sheen..."duh, winning."

I started off Sunday trekking to a wooded park area near home for an outfit shoot.  My husband mocked me for taking my own pictures, but I had fun, so whatevs.  I'm doing a guest post sometime in the next week or so, so I wanted my pictures to be better than usual for that.  Although it was kind of awkward stomping through the snow in heeled boots, it was sunny and warm (OK, only 35°), so it was pleasant.

After that, Bridget and I headed to my parents' to hang out for awhile since my mom was missing her grandbaby.  The sunny hour drive over and back was very relaxing.  While I was there, my mom and I spent the whole time playing with Bridget while watching a Sister Wives marathon.

And now it's Monday.

I ordered the necklace I'm wearing from Peace Republic Clothing, received it on Saturday, and was excited to wear it today.  Cute, yes?  I paired it with my Rodarte for Target cardigan and a plain white tee (not to be confused with the Plain White T's.  Bah dum CHING.).


  1. It sounds like you had a fun weekend, and the picture of Stephen in his Dr. Seuss hat is just adorable, as is the picture of Bridget.

    I love your new necklace and it goes wonderfully with that Rodarte cardi. I think you look fabulous in yellow!

  2. The Wyndham looks like a great place, you're going to have so much fun! I can't wait to hear all about your trip.

  3. yaya I'm glad you like it! It looks lovely on you. And that baby= ah-dorable I must say. :)
