Floridian Adventure

dress: target, shoes: similar, belt: new york & co

My boyfriend and I flew to Tampa, Florida last week and spent a few days at the most amazing hotel. The view was beautiful and there was even a private beach out back. Not to mention a Starbucks, indoor pool, gym and classy restaurant. Seriously, if you are ever in Tampa go there. 

It was such an amazing trip. I completely fell in love with Tampa the beautiful beaches. 

More outfit posts from FL in store.

Glad to be back in the blogosphere :)


Love to Burn

dress: Kohls; belt: boyfriend's; shoes: target

I am taking vacation from work and going to Florida this weekend. Can. Not. Wait.
Debating whether or not to bring this dress. I love it but it may be too warm for the 90 degree weather.

New sandals from Target : )

I will post again when I return to the Midwest next week.
Expect lots of beach pictures...

PS: I was featured on Curve Appeal today. So exciting!


Chocolate Cake

Today was my mom's birthday. I gave her Lemon and Neroli perfume, as mentioned here, and I (with help from my boyfriend at 1 AM last night) baked her a chocolate cake from this recipe. My dad, sister, sister's boyfriend, my mom and I went out for Mexican food. She said it was the best birthday she's had in twenty years. I had a great day spending time with my family. After three hours on the road though, I think I am ready for bed!



Twins! Just kidding. We are only sisters. People regularly mistake us for twins though. 

My boyfriend and I hosted a Memorial Day cookout this holiday weekend. 
My sister and her boyfriend were in attendance. 
We served brats, hot dogs, macaroni salad and cupcakes. 

My sister is wearing a lovely maxi dress from Target.
