Hey everyone! How are you doing?

I am loving this beautiful weather! 🙂 Yesterday I had the chance to see my best blend! For those of you not in the blog word blog + friend = blend! 😉

We went to a newer place called First Watch, which is only open for breakfast and lunch–and has a huge menu of fresh and healthy dishes! Muy bueno!

Stole this picture from Katie!

We always have a good time…girl talk, fitmixer, cliquey girls, ya know.

I rolled with the Market hash–and chose the poached eggs. It was yummy!

Afterwards we took advantage of the sunshine and walked around the shops…and we made the sad mistake of venturing into ULTA. I obviously did not walk away empty-handed:

This stuff smells sooooo good. It is a leave-in conditioner/detangling spray. I can sense an addiction coming on…

Then today I went out for dinner and drinks with one of my dearest friends, Lindsay, who I worked with at the humane society. Here was the outfit of the day:

Top: Banana Republic

Bottoms: Gap

Bracelet: New York & Co.

Shoes: Target

We enjoyed food our on the patio–gosh, I love summer!!  What do like most about the weather warming up?

Also a few random things:

How can you not love this song? Oh 90’s music–you get me every time.

Have a good night!

Meet-up and new buys!

Hey everyone!

Anyone else have a serious case of the Monday’s?! I did. Always a bummer after a fun weekend! I met up with some lovelies from the blog world! I met Claire and Beth for the first time, and got to see Katie again! I haven’t seen her since we met at HLS–but now she lives close! I can’t wait to meet up again. Anyone else in the Pittsburgh area? We would love for you to join us next time!

I was a little nervous at first–I have never had a meet up! But every one was so nice, we chatted all through lunch and then did some shopping! I had the hummus and a caesar salad at Houlihan’s. I love their hummus–they make it to order!

Then this happened:

I had some good finds at Forever 21!! And I didn’t realize how much Chi Omega is really happening here! Love it! Cardinal and Straw must be on my mind… 🙂

Also…I am getting better at remembering to wear accessories with my outfits–my first experience wearing bangles:

I got a big set of them I mixed and matched from New York & Company–love that store!

And then topped the night off with my Mom making one of my favorite meals:

Shrimp pasta with salad and white zin! Yum!

What are some of your favorite comfort foods?

So Pinterest is a really big problem! Especially when you don’t have a big budget! It makes me want all of these cute things, but I can’t get them!

All of those pictures are from my “Style” board!

So far the only thing that I have are these boots:

I also have a pair of skinny jeans (dark color) and Boyfriend style jeans from The Gap. Maybe a trip to Marshall’s is in my future? Lol.

And just to leave you with a quote I also found on Pinterest:

Have a great morning!

I was cruising around Pinterest, which I am still trying to get the hang of, when I came across this blog! It is super cute–and I may just have to keep reading for style help. I am not skilled in the fashion department!

Regardless, as I was reading I came across these questions, so I figured I would answer them!

One. What is your middle name? Lynn

Ten. What’s your sign?
Leo! Rawr!
Eleven. Future names of your children.
I haven’t put too much thought into this–considering I don’t see myself having children any time soon! But I do like the name Samantha, Sammi for short! And I like the name Ethan for a boy. 🙂

I would love to get into animal behavior one day–but who knows! I am just getting started!
