a small photo journal of a weekend spent in atl with my sister.

so good we had to wait in line.


new fave.

didn't get a chance to enjoy this time, but most certainly next.

a better version of an orange crush-
and orange crush, duh.

really loved atlanta.  the weekend was perfect- 60 degrees, good food- chicken and waffles, jersey shore and ice cream whilst lounging in bed (i have to add that it was delivered), and maggie.  a gal couldn't get much luckier.

last birthday post

monday (the big day)

birthday headquarters.

spent pretty much the entire day in my pj's except for when we went to dinner and then i just threw on a skirt and sweater over my union suit (pj's of choice that day).  couldn't have asked for anything better.

birthday festivities continued


my parents, my brother, casey, and i went out to dinner together- so nice.  case made me open my presents a day early since he couldn't take waiting anymore.

case did a little artwork on each gift

i had a helper to unwrap gifts

i got a really cool painting of a manatee from casey that i'll post later.

birthday festivities (a week later)

last weekend was birthday filled.


saturday we had a party with our closest friends.  the food was amazing, the usual with our group.  a picture tale below.

duck salad


pot de creme

champagne cupcakes


dog party

i went to target to kill time

and came out with so many (unnecessary) treasures.

these are just the 'fat guy' pants i've been looking for.  never thought i'd buy into 'jeggings' but these guys are perfect.  they're like a washed out cotton denim- sounds horrible but it's not.  now if only i could get away with wearing them to work.

this smells so good- reminds me of something from when i was little.  maybe the 'red apple' flavored lip smackers.

if only i could find a picture of the measuring cups that i got!  i'm missing a '1 cup' measurer from my set and i found one today that is blue plastic in the shape of a whale and comes with a '1 tbs' diver.  perfection.  (picture to come- they're that good.)

i can't get over the valentine assortment at target- they have everything from spanish conversation hearts to valentine storage containers for your home.  crazy.  of course i totally bought into it, but sanely.  i just picked up some candy and cards- no heart shaped and printed table settings for me.  at least not this time.

so much for blogging every day.

the weekend slipped away from me with birthday festivities and general laziness.

getting back on track.

birthday wishing

(pardon my photoshop skills- or lack thereof)

a girl can dream, right?

or charge it.
