Spring Wedding Weekend
This past weekend my Gentleman Caller and I headed down to Orlando for a beautiful wedding. Based on our crazy schedules we treated this as a mini-vacay to spend time together and unwind. Just a few things from this weekend: Took some time to catch up on sleep: By the pool sporting some Caps pride: Catching up on some mags: A bit o humor as we wait for the ceremony to begin: Enjoyed...
An incredible time to live in DC.
Behold my Twitter Feed… Full of Housewives, Fashion Bloggers, and FOX News. #whatdoesyourtwitterfeedsayaboutyou?
“Hello, my name is Anthony Bourdain and my new show ‘The Layover’ is even more legit since it appears my shirt was purchased on location, removed from its packaging, and put directly on my body.” For me, the wrinkled shirt adds to his charm. (Photo taken while watching ‘The Layover: New York’. Love the show. Love Bourdain. Love his wrinkled shirt.)
For the man redneck that has everything. Gotta love North Carolina. (Picture taken while getting an oil change.)
Nothing says ‘Classy Christmas’ like a fiber optic Santa. (Purchased with another BFF at our first home post college in Nashville, TN. Nothing says adult maturity like a Fiber Optic Santa.)
My crazy Jack Rabbit dressed for the season. (Purchased with my BFF for my first solo home in Charlotte years ago. He travels well.)
My ‘festive’ Christmas Tree. (Charlie Brown tree gifted by my cousin. Bling Ring Ornament gifted by my future sister-in-law in honor of my first Christmas as a betrothed lady.)
Happy Holidays from the Australian Embassy. (Photo taken on a walk last Saturday eve)
Shopping Cart Showdown.
This indecisive Libra needs some help making a shopping decision… I’ve been inspired to buy (I know, tis the season for giving…facepalm…I’m using a bday gift card, does that make it better?) a chambray shirt to wear with black leggings and tall boots, to casual down some frilly skirts, and possibly wear with super dark wash jeans. Or maybe to just get crazy and mix...
Holiday Decor: Le Bernardin style
Festive frosted twigs and……disco balls? What once was old, is new again. And here I thought the real Holiday decorations Chef Ripert referenced were the brown liquor bottles sparkling in the background. (Photo via Eric Ripert’s Facebook Page)

I’m incredibly lucky to have the benefit of such brave men and women who fight for my country, freedom and ideals. Words can not express the gratitude I feel towards you and your families for your brave and selfless service to our country. Happy Veterans Day.
The beginning of Basketball Season is always an electric time for Tar Heel fans. Especially this year, since it marks the close of a truly hellacious football experience. (taking the court of the USS Carl Vinson) It’s also incredibly nerve wracking. #1. Great teams carry great expectations and I hope they’re ready for an entire season of high quality basketball. (the man can...
Means that your dad finally learned advanced font size techniques. Email title ‘Today’. I melt.

Evacuated buildings. Metro and roads are clogged…Imagine the increase in bar sales this afternoon. #EarthquakeHappyHour
My First Earthquake.

re: Internet S.O.S
Picture of the dress if that helps! Late to the party? I desperately need silver strappy heels that aren’t prom, stripper, rhinestone crusted, or mixed with clear plastic as an accent. _________________________________________________________________ **Updates for anyone else in the same situation: - Great option from...
I need silver strappy heels to accompany a bridesmaid dress. Have you ever tried to shop for silver strappy heels? It’s like a freak show. Gross prom shoes followed by 17 inch stripper heels. PLEASE, I beg of you! Help me find some decent silver strappy shoes. Ideally I’d like to spend less than $50 since I don’t necessarily consider them a wardrobe staple (I’ve...
First game of the season…ahhhh, feels so good. I was late thanks to work, but luckily a cold beer was waiting for me when I arrived thanks to my oh-so-thoughtful roomie. We missed over half of the (ridiculously fast) game thanks to a snails pace line at Ben’s Chili Dog. Let me just tell you, all the salt built up from the long line completely melted once I took the first bite into...
You’re a fun team…have taken years off my life, but you’re a fun team.
I curse you during close games when I have no clue what you’re doing, I question what vault you think all the saved Time Outs are going to…but it’s all with love. You always class the joint up Roy.
Thank you Marshall.
Slow start, but you got there. Don’t leave us…there’s so much more you can do.
Big fan, HUGE!
I feel ya Dexter. (PS - you played your batootie off in the KY game. Snaps to you)
A Jersey Shore Tribute.
It’s been long enough now…I have accepted that our season has come to a close. But wow, what a great season of ups, downs and twists at every turn. As the boys at the Shore would say: “I’m not mad at this at all.” Great season boys.
Shopping for Charity. If you cared about the cause, like REALLY cared, why wouldn’t you forgo the purchase and send 100% of your money to the cause instead of 5-10%?
'Winning' Bach. Party: Friday - Sun Up
Landing in New Orleans to feel the warm dense-with-humidity air does something for your soul. We were alive at the first step. You’re greeted not only by the warm air, but also the sounds of New Orleans Cajun music and the smells of well spiced seafood. One airport meet up with three other girls, a cab ride with a true creole local (understood roughly half of what he said), and a quick...
'Winning' Bach. Party: Summary
Y’all…I can’t even sum up how much fun this past weekend was. 7 girls (btw, perfect size for a bach party) hit the bayou’ for one awesome time. We threw beads, consumed many a bevie, laughed until we were very literally sore and ate some fantastic food just for starters. Dearest New Orleans, you are an EPIC location for a bachelorette party. You have my heart!
Dear 'the 80's': Eat your heart out.
This little FIBER OPTIC diddy is on it’s way to me right now in preparation for what is certainly going to be an epic bachelorette weekend. Watch out San Diego.
That’s me and my tongue @ PatO’s. I can’t wait to tell y’all about the ridiculous NOLA bachelorette party weekend I just returned from.
My work life is pretty crazy right now. I have a ton on my plate and I’m dishing out projects left and right. I just sent an email with a cheesy joke to try to lighten the mood. Seriously, Leah? Seriously? This is my life.
It’s important for you to keep up with your friends love situations so you don’t have to put your foot in the mouth. While trying to plan a weekend trip to DC for Subject 1’s bday, a summer beach trip came up for discussion. Subject 1 asked whether this would be a ‘couples-type’ of weekend (she believes she’s the last single girl left on the face of the planet...
OH MY GOSH, Slim’s is a must do. Get a New Orleans Slammer…you(r...– - Whiskey Bent & Hell Bound Tumblr is awesome and so is the quote author above. Follow. If you don’t know, now you know.
NOLA or bust...
Bachelorette party this coming weekend in New Orleans. Small group of 7, lots of fun girls. We have most of our plans (Hotel in the FQ, Commanders Palace brunch, ACME oyster house dinner, UNC tourney viewing, Pat O’Brians, Cats Meow, Hotel Monteleone for drinks, Cafe DuMonde etc.) Any suggestions from the tumblr world of things we should add to the itinerary? (Picture above was the...
Friday: An evening with my babe. Saturday: Trip to the museum (on a groupon) with my roomie to soak up some knowledge. Any suggestions or advice? Saturday night: Out on the town with the roomies. Watch out G’town. Sunday: Packing (blech) and a drive back to NC for the week. Dinner and Superbowl watching with the rents. High possibility that I’m asleep by halftime. Sorry Fergie.
Heads Carolina, tails California.
