I haven't done an Instagram update in a while, so I thought it was about time.  (PS: for further proof of just how long its been since my last insta-update, half of these pictures are from my last month of long hair!)

Aug 13 2012*Wedding dress shopping at Nicole Miller with my friend Christa.  She looked so pretty!
*Last turban of the summer.  (This picture may or may not make me miss my long hair a teeny, tiny bit!)

Aug 17 20121*An oh-so-sweet graduation gift from my fabulous NYC brothers in law.
*Cappuccinos and chocolate, a perfect pairing for a girls day with my dear friend Christie. 

May 30 20125*Matt and I discovered a fabulous Mediterranean resturant by our house.
*I will never be able to enjoy a store bought pita again; their pitas were heavenly! 

Collages*The week before I started my new job, I spent the day wandering around downtown Chicago, popping in and out of shops, stopping for coffee midday.  It was the perfect way to end my "summer break" and kickoff the start of my new job.
*A new BBQ spot opened near our house.  While it's not quite Texas standard, it works in a BBQ pinch. 

Aug 13 20121*So happy to host Ryan and Makenna when they were in town for Lollapalooza, taking them to our favorite Neapolitan pizza place.
*Afternoon chardonnays at Flight 1551

Aug 26 2012*Saturday picnic in the park.
*Strawberry banana pancakes at our favorite breakfast spot. 

Jul 22 2012*My BFF Jordan was in town for work, which meant we got to sneak in some quality lunch, pool, and cocktail time.
*Grande nonfat caramel macciatos are my obsession right now (though I continue to seriously limit my Starbucks intake after last year's September Spending Freeze!) 

May 30 20126*Impromptu picnic with work friends.
*Cocktail night courtesey of GQ.

Las Vegas February 2012*Raspberries are my favorite way to jazz up my water, and I'm soaking up the last few of the season!
*Fun office stationary complete with my new "Doctor Allison" pen, courtesy of my little brother.  He thought about it, picked it out, and paid for it all by himself.  What a thoughtful little guy :)

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

Yay! I love that you spent your last week of "freedom" just hanging out in Chicago. Staycations are the best.
