celebrating life.

there is so much crazy in the world,
so much stress and disappointment,
that I think it is SO necessary to celebrate life and all the wonderful things about it.

thankfully my friends agree,
and we spent this weekend celebrating life!


Blair turned 26, and of course she did it with such style and grace.

she rented out our own private dining area at
Tiny Boxwoods 
(if you have not been here, it is a must)

and that is how you do a cute dinner party.
it was so perfect!


Sunday we got to celebrate the excitement of 
Chelsey's Baby Shower for sweet Lucy.

I am SO excited to finally have a friend that is pregnant.
this is going to be such a fun, precious stage in our friend group & I can't wait to watch Chels be the sweetest mommy ever!

this past weekend, my mom and I headed to Pittsburgh for the 

we ended up flying in a day earlier bc of airfare rates.
we spent the extra day walking around, shopping at some local boutiques, and catching some football games.

I wish you could truly see how awesome fall leaves are lol
the pictures don't do much justice.

fun fact: Vin Diesel is filming movie in Pittsburgh (so is Will Smith) and we sat next to a bunch of the film crew/production/stunt men at our hotel. They've been there for a few months... and when one of them told me he was friends with Zach Galifianakis the night before, I thought he just had too much whiskey... but little did I know lol 


Monday was GAME DAY!!!

we went to the Texans meet up before

they do a "pump you up" video before the team runs out,
they just so happened to have one of my very favorite quotes playing in the back of the video. it made my night! I felt like it was just for me. 
Dr. Brene Brown Quotes on Shame, Vulnerability and Daring Greatly - @Helen George #supersoulsunday

so so so fun!

I am in a "funk" and cannot get out.

I have tried...


I have eaten bags of cookies, 
baskets of chips and salsa,
stayed up too late,
watched countless hours of trash tv,
I even skipped the gym for 3 solid weeks, 
thinking that would help!

is what is making me 

I gotta get it together,
I guess I thought maybe admitting it would 
help me feel slightly ashamed & then change it.

are you tired of reading me whine and complain yet?!

I am...

so here is some fun that happened last week:

- the store was in a little fashion show & the girls looked adorable!!

- I got these sweet flowers & it just goes to show...
sometimes you don't feel like the real MVP,
but YOU are! 

-I made a 24hr trip to lake livingston.
wish it would have been longer... I am dying to 
"disconnect", it is real fun sitting outside all day!

- Sunday we had a "pumpkin painting party"

-Monday I got a pedi and read my new book.
it was the best!

hope you all are feeling much more on top of the world than I am currently,
but I call feeling like a champ ASAP!

I like doing hood rat things with my friends. 


Saturday night was a good one.

I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard...

and go to a lil wayne or drake show 
at least once in your life!
