I'm SO glad it's finally Friday! Here is what I have planned for my weekend:

Baking homemade cupcakes tonight - I've been craving them all week!

Drinking some red wine

Spending quality time with my dog Max

Sleeping in all weekend

Hanging out with Michael

Going to see Pat Green tomorrow night with friends!
Have a great weekend!


Here is one of my favorite pictures of me and my fiance, Michael. This was taken at my brother's wedding in September of 2007, so it's a little old. Michael and I got engaged in April 0f 2008 and have been dating for over 4 years now! Here are a few of the reasons why I love him and can't wait to be his wife!
  • He is so kind and warm to everyone he meets
  • He is super smart
  • He is a very strong Christian
  • He has an adorable nose that's a little crooked
  • We share a lot of the same interests - cooking, eating at fun restaurants, watching mystery shows, playing sports
  • We both like to stay at home rather than go out
  • He has an adorable (read: crazy) dog that will soon be "ours"
  • He thinks I'm crazy/weird, but still loves me anyway
  • He's my best friend!

I love you honey!

My favorite shoes!

Since I love shopping, especially shoes, I thought I'd do a post of my favorite shoes in my closet right now!
Lilly Pulitzer Riding Boots - I wear these all the time over my skinny jeans.

Kate Spade Cybil heels - I got these 30% off over Christmas and I adore them.

Jack Rogers Navajo in ANY color - I have 6 pairs (embarassing) of these in different colors. They're perfect for warm weather!

Tory Burch Revas - so I know these are a little overdone (and maybe on the way out), but I have had my brown pair for 1.5 years and I STILL love them. They're about worn out, but I have back-ups in green and orange, don't you worry.

That's it for now (it's taking me too long to upload). Some of my favorites are my cheap Target shoes, but I can't find any pictures sadly.
