Low-Key Weekend

It was my first rather low-key weekend in a while {and it will probably be the only one for quite some time with plans/holidays coming up!}

This weekend, I found out about the show, DC Cupcakes {yes, I really DID live under a rock while living in Utah but seriously, who’s coming to Georgetown Cupcake with me?}, and watched girls drop $12,000 on their gowns on Say Yes to the Dress. For real? This clearly calls for a Wedding Wednesday post on wedding gowns for killer deals, yes?

Then, I tried out some new hairstyling techniques with lots of teasing {because I LOVE teasing to get that va-va-volume!} I also love curls.


Don’t you love how my hair color looks different in every picture? Who even knows what color it is anymore?!

I also got to babysit my niece, Aubrey! We danced, played, complained about eating our veggies, and said the word “bubble” over and over :) Oh, and we took pictures.



Later we celebrated Aubrey’s mama’s birthday and had some dee-licious ice cream cake! Fall colors and all!


This weekend, I finally saw the movie Limitless. It’s been between that movie and Lincoln Lawyer for some time now but I chose Bradley over Matthew. Well, let me just say – I’d watch Drive over Limitless any day. They had that same “someone’s following you” feel to them but Limitless kind of actually made me feel like someone was out to get me. Paranoia much? Luckily, the only dreams I had that night were about tornadoes and flying first class with a former President. I wasn’t kidding when I said I had recurring tornado dreams.

Speaking, of Drive… check out what I’m reading. I’m sure you’re not surprised.


That’s right – the book the film is based off of. The only bad thing about the book is I can’t see Ryan Gosling. And, speaking of my man, Ry… he turned 31 on Saturday :)


So, naturally… I wished for him. Just kidding. Because, if I told you my wish, it wouldn’t come true ;) I totally missed my second wish at 11:11PM, by the way.

Now, if you’ll pardon me. I’ll be spending the remainder of my week at the gym working off that ice cream cake and going on more blates epic adventures with my new BFF!

P.S. I think this was the first time I used Instagram since um, the beginning of the year. So, I figured I’d link up with a {little} dash of ash :)

this totally reminded me that I want to try curls in my hair to. I never do since they always just fall out!

Looks like an awesome weekend. And speaking of awesome, your hair is. That is all. :)

Jodi said...

Vivian said...

Such pretty hair. My 11-11-11 wasn't that spectacular. I had to take care of a house full of sick children. My only wish at the time was "GET ME OUT OF HERE" (HA!)

Raquel said...

Pretty hairrrrr! :)

Lindsay said...

Your little niece is too cute!

I love your hair curled, it looks pretty :)

And seriously, the women who spend that kind of money on a dress are INSANE. I just don't get it.

Ashley said...

True life: I definitely watched that Say Yes to the Dress and was dying at the prices of those dresses. Also dying at the fact that she wanted a dress to make her look like a cupcake! (I did love her final choice though, so gorgeous!) Your hair looks gorgeous here too, lady! Love it.

ps. I'm saying yesss to a visit Georgetown Cupcake. Yumm-o :)

Erica [pocket full of chuckles] said...
