Happy Good Friday folks. If you're like most lucky Americans and are off today, consider yourself lucky. I've gotta work today unfortunately, but at least traffic was super light.
This week has been pretty relaxing for the most part, I definitely need a week off and cannot wait until Tuesday gets here, safe to say I'm actually excited for Monday to get here because that means one day closer to Houston and seeing A!! Today I'm linking up with the always beautiful, Amanda!!
I was sitting at the kitchen table making cupcakes with my sister and caught a glimpse of my wet hair with the sun shining on it and took a pic, I love all the different colors that are peeking out now that I added highlights to my color. I wish my hair would stay this curly after it dried, but unfortunately it turns into a frizzy mess about 10 mins later.
Here is said cupcakes that I was making in the above picture. My sister had a hawaiian themed retirement party at work and decided to try a Pinterest technique with the little tropical drink toppers. They were honestly easier than I thought to make, all it involves is whopper malt balls, flower sprinkles in diff tropical colors, Twizzlers pull and peel, and some melted white chocolate. We then put some fun light blue icing to look like water and stuck an umbrella in to finish the look. The end result looked very festive and although time consuming, well worth it.
My beautiful pink tulips from Trader Joe's have been blooming like crazy and definitely brighten up the house with the color!! I can't wait to pick up more blooms from TJ's in the coming weeks!!
I had a much needed, long awaited massage at the spa this week and boy was it awesome. The massage therapist told me I had a ton of knots and suggested I come back on a regular basis. I'm not sure how likely it'll be with my crazy work schedule getting even crazier, but I definitely enjoyed the me time it allowed.
Our love affair with Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence in text form...this is one of the reasons why I'm in love with this guy.
I'm thinking this is my airport look, but wanted to get some feedback. We are heading to dinner and meeting up A's cousin so I wanted to still look put together, but be comfortable as well. I think throwing some sandals in with this look would work best, thoughts?!
If you're on Instagram, then you've probably seen this floating around thanks to the awesome blogger Helene. At first I honestly didn't think I was going to participate because I didn't think I'd have pictures, they wouldn't be as cool as the other kids, you know normal reasons not to do something. But then I realized it was actually inspiring me and I had fun thinking up and taking pictures. So far, here are my first 2 days of pictures for this fun challenge.
Also, if you want to join in on the fun you still can! There are no rules and this is supposed to be a fun way to interact on one of the most widely used social media platforms, pick and choose the days you want to take pictures...just make sure to #30PhotosInBetween :).

Memories definitely play a huge factor in my life. I love having keepsakes in a memory box to look back and reflect on.
Ok ok, so I think I've overwhelmed y'all enough for one day, but hope you all have an absolute wonderful Friday and upcoming Easter weekend ahead. I don't celebrate Easter in the traditional sense, but my best friends and I are all planning to meet up for Easter brunch complete with mimosas! Also lots of packing to be done on my part, see you guys on the other side of the weekend.
Here's a little something something I'm gonna leave y'all with.
