weekend wear, weird burrs, and a blogger meet-up!!

 dress: base exchange / striped tee: f21 / belt: f21/ tights: belk
boots: rampage / ring: gift from SIL-to-be/ nailpolish: OPI william tell me about

is it not crazy to think over a week ago, the south got all of this snow - and now it's finally melting away. it was so warm out, i didn't need a coat. it's a miracle, folks! i got sick of the snow on the second day that it was even here. i don't know how i survived 8 years of it in chicago!


oh, ryan and i found a bunch of these little weird burr (?) looking things in his backyard. i thought they were kinda cool looking. they were peaking out from all of the melting snow.

like i mentioned either via twitter or in a recent post, despite the snow, i was still able to meet-up with Lori from Chicgeekdesigns! we had a ridiculously good time over a good ole cups of Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolate (to die for)! it still amazes me how blogging connects people in the way that it does. if i end up moving to GA, i know i'll have a friend in the area.


so i'm still in GA, loving the time with (my) Ryan and his family. overall, it's been relaxing - watching good movies, lots of modern family on DVD, and enjoying walking around outdoors (it's finally warming up around here!). and oh my goodness, have you ever seen the movie regarding henry with harrison ford? saw it for the first time the other night and def. shed a couple of tears. in the mood for a good story? this is a good one!

what did you do this weekend?

and happy MLK day - especially to those that have the day off from work! you got any fun plans? Ryan's mom has the day off so we're planning on a little shopping trip. can't wait to see what i find - especially since i didn't get to shop as much as i wanted to last week with the snow and all. boo. 

[happy monday, friend.] 

p.s. don't forget the ever popular giveaway going on right now!

  1. oh my word... lets talk about regarding henry..and how the first time I watched that movie (back when I was in 4th or 5th grade), it made me want to be a PHYSICAL THERAPIST for the LONGEST time!

  7. Oh so jealous of your blogger meetup! How fun! :)

    Are those gumballs? They are all over my parent's yard in MD. We used to play in the backyard with them, pull up the grass and pretend to make spaghetti and meatballs. :)

    Have a great week, my friend!

  24. You look beautiful here! Great outfit too :) I'm always in awe of people who post photos of themselves on their blogs as I am just so uncomfortable in front of the camera, so I admire your confidence (and of course it helps that you're gorgeously photogenic of course!! lol). I love how cheery you are too, so many style posts can look beautiful but serious, but your sense of fun oozes out of these shots, it's fab! Keep up this beautiful, happy work xx
