. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Weekend Highlights

January 13, 2013

Weekend Highlights

dress: old navy  scarf: DIY  boots: kohls

1.  Wearing this outfit and making it to church this weekend.  After the busy holidays and being off my feet it has been too long since we've been.  

2.  A friend of ours is a manager at a nice restaurant and invited us to come eat dinner for free!  It was delicious and we even got dessert: apple bread pudding and ice cream. 


3.  We got cable this weekend and I am a little too excited about it.  I'm mostly excited about being able to watch Guilianna and Bill.  I'd list all the other reality shows I plan on watching, but would fear you will think all I plan on doing now is watching tv.  

 

4.  Right around being 5 weeks pregnant the idea of drinking coffee completely disgusted me.  Which is really sad, since I drank it daily.  I finally had a cup of coffee this weekend and I can't say that it was as good as I thought before, but definitely not disgusting. 


5.  Reading some of my favorite blogs.  Like one of my very favorites Shanna from because Shanna said so.


I'm pretty sure that if I could pick a family to join that I've met through blogging I would pick Shanna's.  Her family is adorable, her two girls are mini fashionistas, following in their mom's footsteps, and her marriage sets a great example.  I'm also going to honestly say that if I had to pick someone's wardrobe to steal or someone to dress me daily I'd pick Shanna.  But besides her adorable family and amazing clothes, my favorite thing about Shanna is that she is sweet, honest and no doubt you will want to be friends with her.

Next up is Tara from the Penniless Socialite


Tara is a girl after my own heart.   She is a queen of bargain shopping, which means we already have a lot in common.  She puts together the cutest outfits, like this pattern mixing outfit or putting together this lace skirt and flannel shirt, which I just may be copying this week.  Tara also shares about other random life happenings, like her trips, her cats or what she is loving lately.

And last you need to met Nadine from the Back East Blonde.


Isn't her picture adorable?  Both her and her cute puppy?  Nadine's blog is one that I recently discovered and I'm sure glad I did!  Nadine recently moved from California to the east coast and blogs about her life and adventures there.  From one of the cutest puppies I've ever seen to her "anti fairy tale" love story. And who doesn't love reading about embarrassing childhood memories and photos?

Hope you all had a good weekend!

I love the boots:)

it's weird that when I saw the cup I suddenly miss ginger tea. I am a tea drinker but ginger tea don't come too often in our table.

I might need to get one cup today.. :)

Jordy Liz said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I hated the taste of coffee when I was early on in this pregnancy, too. About 12-14 weeks in, I could finally stomach it and actually enjoyed the taste of coffee again! Now I enjoy my usual, just decaf. :)

Shay said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I am so jealous- I miss having cable! And those boot socks are so cute- I need some!

CC said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the outfit and so glad you are feeling better!
And I have never been a coffee drinker, but I had to give up my iced tea somewhere around 15 to 20 weeks because my little guy bounced around like crazy every time I drank any little bit of caffeine. ;)
