I was featured! random weekend thoughts.

Good morning, bloggies!  Mondays are always so hard.  Was just getting used to this relaxing thing by Sunday night, then bam!, you have to wake up super early & get back into work-mode the very next morning.  Cruel!

Anyway,  I've been meaning to tell you that I was featured on a blog called Pocket Change.  They do a "Best of the Web" feature each week & they chose to highlight my blog.  Check it out here

On Friday night, Brandon and I went to dinner & had planned on going out downtown with our friends afterwards.

Dress: Francesca's, Belt: Banana Republic,  Shoes: Restricted (from small boutique, too)
My dress looks black, but it's actually navy!

But then, after we had full bellies, we decided to stay in with white-chocolate croissants and

...of course, the movie was Brandon's choice & I just went along with it.  

Saturday's plan was to get up early to go to the Farmer's Market, but sleeping in is just so much more fun, no?

Later that afternoon, we went to the beach with some friends.  This was my second time at the beach (not to ride bikes) all year long ...and I live 10 minutes away.  How sad is that? 

In my defense, we tend to go out on the boat when we want a day in the sun.  But, I always forget how fun beach days are.

It was so hot & humid that my phone's camera was taking the most hazy pictures!

We took full advantage of this beach day & stayed until midnight. 

Yes, that's right.
We had dinner at Rita's & decided to hop around Folly's "night life" ...still in bathing suits.

Sunday was all about relaxing.
I laid on the sofa and watched a chick-flick marathon on FX, which, by the way, was absolutely glorious.
Later on, Brandon and I rode our bikes to the grocery store (I have mentioned that he lives across the street from me, right?) and then I spent close to two hours ironing.

Side note:
Isn't this VBH handbag gorgeous?

For a measly $3,250.00, it, too, can be yours!

How random is this post?
...about as random as the contents of my beach bag on Saturday.



  1. Sounds likie a perfectly relaxing weekend. I love the Farmer's Market!! I love relaxing on the couch! And as long as it's a leisurly bike ride, I love that too. One Sunday my friend convinced me ride bikes around a local lake with her. Thinking about how much I loved ridiing my bike as a kid I was excited to go with! Until I realized it was a 12 mile bike ride mostly uphill. HORRIBLE and never again. My ass hurt so bad from riding I could barely walk. And trust me, I have plenty of pading back there. I'll just stick to the treadmill/elliptical for now on. YIKES!
