Life has been busy and fun lately, and I feel like I have a ton of photos just sitting in my phone. Here are a few snaps of what I've been up to lately. Disclaimer: "lately" is a generous term in this case; I'm a bit behind with my blogging :)
Geek chic: a striped tee, blazer, chunky scarf, and black glasses that seem to make my ponytail days instantly better :)
Starbucks and flashcards, my two best friends as I study for my licensure exam.
Cheese, bread, and jam make everything better.
Girls night at Paola's Vinum with my dear friend Christa.
My new Texas "home" tee, an awesome birthday gift from my mom!
Lately, I have been really into layering longsleeved tees under chic dresses for a fun "jumper" effect.
Edamame isn't just for sushi restaurants; I've been loving it in salads and even plain.
Hot chocolate and Harry Potter, the only way to get through Chicago's never ending winter.
A quirky, original print scored at a recent estate sale. We've got some fun plans for this little dude.
Greektown double date with Brady and Kevin; so fun!
Gold sequins and a black blazer, totally appropriate for a Friday at work, right? :)
Whole wheat English muffin pizzas, my new, easy peasy, go-to dinner.
A fabulous gift from my old boss and dear friend Jenny. Texas is always close to my heart.
Pair it with my beloved fur vest, and I'm a happy camper!
My brother was in town a few weeks ago for a summer internship interview. Gosh, I love that little dude.
Celebrating Ryan's interview (and National Sibling Day) with chocolates and macaroons. So many choices!
I can't believe how fast he is growing up. Such a cutie.
Need a quick and easy birthday treat for a friend or coworker? Add sprinkles to Rice Krispy treats, and voila, festive and fun!
At home dinner date with my man.
A glass of red wine might be one of my favorite ways to unwind on Fridays.
Loved seeing an old high school drill team friend in Chicago. Come back soon Vy and Alex!
Seeing The City and the City at Lifeline. Chicago has a great and affordable live theater scene.
Hot chocolate and churros at Xoco. I last raved about them here. I am literally obsessed.
Proof I don't believe in ever wearing too much leopard :)
A BIG thanks for all the sweet comments and well wishes on my last post. Homeownership has been a dream for Matt and me for so long, it's kind of hard to believe we finally did it! Hope your week is fabulous!
