So, it's Wednesday & tomorrow may or may not be my Friday!!!!  Woo Hoo!

I'm linking up with Michelle from The Vintage Apple for,

Surprisingly, I haven't been on Pinterest too much this week... gasp! I know!
However, I have pinned a few things & here they are for your viewing pleasure!

I think a door table would be perfect in my dream home!  It could double as the island & eat at bar!

Congrats to G & B!

Happy Tuesday!

As most of you know, Giuliana & Bill Rancic announced yesterday morning on the Today Show that they are expecting a precious baby via gestational surrogate.

Giuliana Rancic, Bill Rancic

Matt & I both watch their show on the Style Network weekly.  Giuliana & Bill are so funny and work so well together despite their hectic schedules & the rough last year that they have been through - they keep it real.  They are some of the most (seem to be) down to Earth, real people & that's why we love them!

So, congratulations to Giuliana & Bill & Baby Rancic!
I couldn't think of two people who deserve this more!

What do y'all think of the Rancic's BIG news!?

Weekend Rundown & Falling Off Track

Hey y'all!  Well, this weekend was a busy one for us but, it was a good one!

On Friday we went to the Main St Arts Festival to see a Florida band play.  
Of course we had to get our grub on first...

& then over to the festival
I love that there is so many awesome events that happen right in the middle of our great city!

Saturday we had some errands to run & went to see Matt's parents.  While we were in Graham I stumbled into this awesome antique store just off the square!  When I walked in the lady explained the history of the store to me - it was an old jail where back in the day 2 prisoners escaped.  Long story short one of the John Wayne movies was based on those events!  How cool is that!?

Instead of shopping on Sunday like I wanted to do Matt & I went on a bike ride with my Dad & a few other couples.  It was such a gorgeous day, we couldn't resist!

What did you do this weekend!?


On another note, with all the fun we had this weekend I completely fell off track working out & eating right!  I have beat myself up all day about it & it's so frustrating!  What's worse is that we are going to a big music festival this upcoming weekend.  Yes, I'm excited to go & have a great time however, I'm already dreading all of the beer & fried foods that will be taken in!  Since I don't want to blow up like a balloon by the end of the weekend, I'm planning on taking some healthy snacks!

I'm already planning on taking Sweet Potato Chips & a healthy version of Chicken Salad.  Instead of beer I'll be taking along my Vodka/soda water & Skinny Girl Margaritas.

Have I missed anything here?  Do you have any "healthy" snacks that I should take along this weekend?

Thanks in advance for any help ladies!

My Shopping Wish List: Spring & Summer

Happy Friday lovelies!!!
I've got some money that is just burning a hole in my pocket!  & after assessing my Spring wardrobe over the last couple of weeks, I've decided that it needs a little help.
So, Momma's going shopping!

Here's a few things on my shopping list:

I want red pants!   Need white pants!  & the coral, I love!

I must find red & white skinny jeans!  (& since I want them so badly I probably wont' be able to find them!) Wish me luck!

cute summer outfit
I definitely want to pick up a couple of blazers

perfect outfit.
I need some new black shorts & some coral in my closet

I'm really loving the nautical look these days.  Erin pulls it off great, all of the time!

I'm a sucker for bright neon colors, this would be perfect!

Of course Spring & Summer wardrobe wouldn't be complete without fun dresses!

Mossimo Supply Co. Tan Shine Floppy Hat
I purchased this gem at Target today!  You can't really tell but it has gold shimmer in it!

Mossimo Supply Co. aqua Colorblock Floppy Hat
This one is also on my list of "must haves" but, they didn't have it today.  Also at Target!

What's on your Spring & Summer wish list?

We have a busy weekend planned!  What about you?  Whatever you do, I hope y'all have a great one!

Inspiration Board

Hey y'all!  Happy Thursday!

So, y'all know how I've been chat chat chatting about the Tone It Up Bikini Challenge that I'm doing & how much I've been loving it, right?  I apologize if any of you get a little tired of me talking about it but, Karena & Katrina have made working out fun, & being in shape & leading a healthy lifestyle more obtainable than I  ever thought possible!

I must say after 2 days of workouts (I missed Wednesday's b/c I left my tenni runners @ home - whoops!) from my booty cheeks on down, I'm sore!!!  I look like a grandma trying to get up & down off the couch or my chair at work!  Go ahead, visualize & laugh.  :)  

Karena & Katrina gave us a challenge to make vision boards so that we can have something to look at & remember why we're doing what we're doing.  And when we have a down or off day, I can look at my board & stay motivated!  So, here's my board!

(Click the picture to see the whole image)

Some of these I have on my work computer as my screen saver but, now this will be my computer background!

If you're wondering how I did the collage, no I'm not a computer genius.  Sorry.
However, Miss Erin posted just yesterday about how to make your pictures look all cool & cute for FREE!  (I'm all about it!)
So, I found all of my pictures on Pinterest & used Picasa to make the collage!
You can also use PicMonkey to make your pics look all cool like Instagram does, but better!

Have you ever made an inspiration board?

Remember when...

Hey y'all!  Happy Monday!
Not much to tell about our weekend except that I did a craft fair on Saturday & set up a booth with my Pampered Chef goodies!  Despite the weather looking a little gloom & doom, it was a great day!
Sunday, I FINALLY finished my taxes - just in time, I know!  

Do y'all happen to remember when Matt & I were going on our ski trip but, on our way out of town we went to my best friend's wedding?  You may also remember that the weekend before her wedding I helped throw her a Bachelorette party?
Well, I still have not shared any of those fun times with y'all!
Forgive me please?

For your Monday reading pleasure let's start with the Bachelorette party!
1 word to describe what took place this night: Shenanigans.
All of the ladies at the winery for tastings

The bride to be!

After the wine tasting we ate dinner at a local Brick Oven Pizzeria where you could BYOB!

After dinner we went back to Kimberly's house for a Pure Romance party!

***The cake was cut, gifts were opened & crazy games took place!  Pictures not appropriate for the WWW***

Luckily, Kimberly survived her Bachelorette party so she was able get hitched the following weekend!

Due to mother nature Kimberly & Chisam's original wedding plan was changed a little bit.
Since it was raining they had to move the wedding in doors to where there wasn't enough room for guest to be.  So instead, they had the ceremony with the immediate families & joined everyone at the reception!  It was perfect!

The beautiful bride!  This was her Grandmother's wedding dress that Kimberly found after her Grandmother passed, just a week before Chisam proposed.  The dress fit like a glove - no alterations  needed!

Matt & I

KayLynne, a college friend & I

Kimberly & I - she changed into her reception dress

Unfortunately Matt & I had to leave early that night to start our drive to Red River.
I was so sad to leave, I practically went kicking & screaming!
But, it was all perfect & was so much fun!


Today starts the Tone It Up Summer Bikini Challenge!  It's an 8 week challenge with new workouts for every. single. day!  I participated in this challenge last summer & LOVED it!  Tone It Up also has a community where you can chat with others in your area & it's great for motivation!  You can find me here in the community!  Find me & friend request me!

Who else is doing the Tone It Up Bikini Challenge!?  I really can't tell y'all just how excited I am about this challenge!  It's going to be sooo much fun & I know I will start seeing results quickly!

Hope y'all have a great Monday & a great week!
