TGIF


So, do you think someone's happy that it's FRIDAY?  
Yes, that would be me.  We are expecting another bright sunny weekend. I'm looking forward to a long run and lazily sitting out on the balcony with my pups.  Side note: We just got a 3 piece table and chairs for the balcony through Craigslist.  It's not perfect with little dings here and there, but I love it (especially for $40).  I should get some plants for the balcony as well, which is just one of the many things I'd like to get to this weekend!! 

Here are some random things on my mind for your weekend musings: 


  • did you know these two were BFFs? so cute!
  • can I pull this off?  thinking about it for my 5th anniversary celebration (2 more years to go). 
  • am i the last one to know about this app?? love it. 
  • i've been obsessed with this make-over... 
  • also obsessed with these guys and their photos... 
Have a great weekend~~

p.s. The above graphic artwork is my own schtuff. A bit lopsided (ugh). I've been trying to get more creative and thought, why not start doing something for this little bloggy blog? Hope you likeeee.

Curious About...


I know, I'm finally catching onto what every other girl has been raving about.  I'm a true late bloomer.  I think I'll start with the Multiple. Let's see if it lives up to its namesake! 

Bobbi Brown - Bronze Shimmer Brick // Nars - The Multiple // Giorgio Armani - Luminous Silk Foundation // Jo Malone - English Pear Freesia

p.s. Let me know if you've used any of these and how you like it ('em).

Work Play Elastic Waist Pants


Isn't it the best when your work outfit can be worn outside of work?  I think this outfit does just that.   
And who can resist wearing elastic waisted pants for both work and play?!!

Weekend Recap - More Sun and Fun

Good Monday, guys!!  Hope you all had a great weekend. 
We enjoyed another weekend, enjoying the warm sunny weather.  I went for a long run on Saturday and the hubs went for a long bike ride, that involved a pretty bad tumble and a loss of his iphone.  But the good news is that he's fine and we had a lot of fun learning to play with his new phone. It's an LG G2, a very sleek looking thing it is!  

On Sunday, we went to see the bike race I mentioned last Friday and I'm so glad we did.  We fretted about the possibility of crazy traffic and lack of parking, but all went well and we were there in no time.  Made me think how many things I persuaded myself not to do, over things like traffic and lack of parking, i.e. stupid excuses. 




We found a little gazebo where we did a kiss selfie. Gazebos always remind you of weddings, no?! (Randy's eyes are open - eech!!) 



 There were a lot of puppies out there too.  But this 9 year old cutie named, Peanut, was the one that stole my heart.  



And here's my youngest, Speedz, photobombing as I was getting ready for the day.  You know, I kinda don't mind.  He's the cutest photobomber ever. (Btw, I DIY'd my denim shorts, which means, taking a pair of scissors, and putting the shorts in the washer for a good spin).  


Here's to another week of hustling & bustling until the weekend~~

La Weekend



TGIF!!!  I haven't checked in on a Friday in awhile~~ 
Although it was a short week, it felt just as long as a regular week. Oh boy, that's never a good feeling.  

So, what are you guys up to this weekend?  
The hubs and I are hanging out on Sunday in Manayunk (which is a town/city outskirts of Philly) to watch a bike race.  Randy has recently become such a cyclist, which all started from attending a really good spin class.  He now rides outside no less than 4 hours every Saturday (that's in addition to spinning his tushi off like 4-5 times a week).  I might as well call him Lance at this point! All joking aside, I'm 100% supportive of his new hobby which has made him healthier, both inside and out. 

I don't have much going on, other than waiting for this beauty to arrive, hopefully on Saturday.  It was one of those things on my wish list that became real (you know, when you have that combo of reward $s and an add'l 20% off sale thing, you gotta go for it).

I also caved in and ordered me a Paderno Spiralizer.  I'm a huge fan of making veggie pasta and my little peeler/veggie-stringer is just not cutting it anymore. I can't wait!! 

I also can't wait for this summer to begin.  It's about time, right?!! Hope you guys have a leisurely weekend into the summer~~

Shooting the Breeze


As promised, more photos from my MDW, partly spent with my friend Nancy.  We went to Terrain at Glen Mills and had an amazing time just shooting the breeze, as Nancy called our meet-up.  The weather was perfect too.  And on a really cool and serendipitous moment, I saw Johnny Weir (you know, the World Champion ice skater) at the garden cafe inside Terrain and got up my nerves to approach him. Luckily, he was so so sweet and nice. He also started to strike a pose as we were taking photos, so I just followed him.  What a day it was~~ Nancy and I capped the day with a duo selfie. 

Here are some photos from the day.  You can see how it's such a beautiful place inside and out.  I promised myself to go back before the summer is over.  (I almost forgot - their food is also to die for!!)

Memorial Day Weekend

Hope you are having a relaxing Memorial Day weekend. 
I'm checking in to say "THANK YOU" to those who served this country.  Without them, we wouldn't be having this peaceful weekend with our loved ones. 

These photos are from Terrain in Glen Mills, hands down one of the most romantic and lovely places to go. I was just there on Saturday with my friend, Nancy, who was in town from Jersey. Nancy quipped "I feel like I'm on a date".  Haha! More photos to come this week! 




Just for a little fun, here's me going for a glass of white sangria, al fresco style at White Dog Cafe (Wayne) on Sunday. It was such a beautiful day, we had to go out and do something.  So, you know, I went for a drink!! 

I'm so excited summer is almost here after a long and dreary winter.  Enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend~~
