Spring? Is it really Easter?

Spring... WHERE ARE YOU?! You came in January and then you left again. It is March... it's time to come back. How about the fact that it's also Easter weekend and we still have brown grass. This is just ridiculous.
 
However, I still plan to wear Lilly. I will just have to put a sweater on and deal with my cold, pasty legs. yuck.
 
In other news... I got a haircut! It feels awesome. We cut a couple of inches off and got a little side bang going. Let's be honest, as much as I love long hair my hair is not made to be long. That is what extensions are for.
 
 
I also just purchased this little dress that I am in love with! I have a wedding at the end of April and I think this will be just perfect.
 
 
How cute is that bow?! I'll definitely need a spray tan. You can buy this dress HERE Only $39, shipping was $5 and I had it in 3 days.  Awesome! This dress also comes in solid colors and they have a sleeveless top with the bow in the back. I want them all.
 
Oh, I almost forgot I have some new fav products.
 
New favorite lipgloss! NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair 
 
Only $5.99 at Ulta.
This has replaced my Too Faced glamour gloss ($19). It goes on so smooth and it isn't sticky. Love LOVE! I need to go get more colors.
 
 
 
This stuff is awesome. It's SO good for you and you can use it for so many different things! I use it as a moisturizer (yes, face and body), lip balm, cuticle cream, eye makeup remover,and you can even use it for cooking. I put a little bit in my oatmeal this morning and it gave a nice little subtle coconut flavor that I loved! (It's a metabolism booster - yes!) Oh, and it can even be used on your hair for deep conditioning. This is a miracle product. Check out this article on Lululemon.
 
So ready to be home this weekend to see my family and this precious little face
 
 
Sweet Sophie Annabella!
 
Hope everyone has a Happy Easter!

ATL weekend in review

This past weekend we went to Atlanta to celebrate Brice's 30th birthday! It was also his dad's birthday on March 10th (he and Carrie share the same b-day) so we had a joint celebration!
 
 
It was great having a 3 day weekend. We used Friday, Brice's actual birthday, to do a couple things I've never been able to do in Atlanta. We first had lunch at The Varsity
 
 
Whattayahave?
 
I'm pretty sure if I lived in Atlanta I'd get a frosted orange AT LEAST once a week. AT LEAST.
 
We then headed to the World of Coca-Cola where I learned about the history and well, most importantly got to sit on the couch where Carrie sat on American Idol in the red room!
 
 
CARRIE SAT THERE. How creepy am I??
 
Oh, found a pic!
 
We went to Capital Grille Friday night. It was delicious! They gave us complimentary champagne and a every girl gets a rose. How nice! But here's a tip... SPLIT YOUR MEAL. We were miserably stuffed and I had what I felt like most of my meal left on my plate. But you seriously have to get the lobster mac n cheese. AMAZING!
 
Saturday we had our "surprise" birthday party for Brice and his dad. They had no clue what we had planned. First of all... I made this button for Brice to wear :)
 
 
When he was a baby he was like a little block. His mom called him "sturdy". HA! But seriously, wasn't he such a little cutie?!
 
We got mexican food for dinner and gave them their tickets to go to the Fox to see The Million Dollar Quartet. It's a broadway musical with Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins & Johnny Cash. It was really good! I highly recommend it.
 

 
 
 
Happy Birthday Brice!
