HELLLOOOOOOO GLORIOUS WEEKEND. WELCOME BACK. I AM IN LOVE WITH YOU.
Am I coming on too strong? I do that sometimes.
NEVERTHELESS, it’s finally Friday and two glorious days of
no less responsibility are upon us. Except those of you who are parents. You don’t get a break. #sorrynotsorry
Tonight Tim and I are headed out to dinner with our parents – his mother requested somewhere “cozy” and we both immediately thought of Four Dogs Tavern. If you live in the Greater Philadelphia Area this is an absolutely amazing place to eat – ESPECIALLY around the holidays. It’s a gorgeous old restaurant and inn with a giant fireplace and live acoustic music on the weekends. I can’t wait to snuggle up and drink wine with some of my favorite peoples : )
But for now; 5 things on this fantastic, fabulous, pretty freaking awesome FriYay!
First off, 30% off at Old Navy y’all. No joke – before this summer I was totally anti Old Navy. Nothing ever fit me correctly and I thought they tried way too hard to be trendy, without actually hitting the mark. Just ordered a few (more) items yesterday (can’t be too specific because one item is a gift for someone I know is reading…!) and I’m anxiously stalking the tracking number for their arrival. (Side note: Not sure what that pose is about, but I sure do love the dress)
Obviously, via #1, I’ve done a bit of online shopping lately. Another item I recently purchased: a new bathing suit. You may be asking, “Why, weirdo?” – But no worries, I’m not insane. We’re going to Punta Cana in 2 weeks!! Stay tuned for packing posts and general excitement for the next 14 days. Sorry in advance for throwing my warm weather vacation in your faces ; )
Getting a bit ahead of myself up there – so many more exciting events happening before we leave for the Dominican. Mainly – our annual FRIENDSGIVING! We’ve been doing this for many moons now – seriously I think we’re on like year 6 or 7 – but it’s evolved from different seasons and locations to a pretty steady routine. We do a BYOB dinner at Giorgio on Pine in Philadelphia, bar hop after dinner, and get hotel rooms for the night! This year we have 23 people. Man, I didn’t even know I had 23 friends! #popular
Essie, you’ve done it again. Guys – Angora Cardi is basically the most perfect fall nail color imaginable. Paired with the Essie Gel Setter top coat and I’ve got a decently long lasting self-manicure. I’m starting to get a litttttle better at painting with my left hand, too! A little. (Side note #2: How do people take photos like this without having a dino claw hand? Teach me your ways, beauty bloggers. Rawr)
Annnnnd last but never, ever least: Dessert. My mom and I have a date with the mixer tomorrow for these perfectly plump little bundles of pumpkin joy. Yes, I am talking about cookies the way some humans describe infants. No, I’m not ashamed.
Happy happy happiest of weekends to you all – Can’t wait to see what you’re loving this week! Linking up with Amanda, Karli & Erika : )
