Memorial Day Weekend

My memorial day weekend was fun-filled and out of the ordinary! On Friday night I met up with Laura (who is my new roomie btw!), we had margaritas, I met her new boy toy and there was constant laughter! Loved. 

On Saturday morning the boy and I spontaniously decided to go to the Zoo! I've lived in atl since I was 8 and had never been to the Atlanta Zoo. I was like a little kid hyped up on 10 bags of cotton candy! 

 Look at that cotton candy butt on that monkey! Haha!

That sweet panda was my favorite. The lion might have been, but lazy thing wouldn't get out of the shade.

Sunday, Laura officially moved in. Yay! And Sunday night was another double date night at The Counter. I loved the sweet potato fries!

Of course we had to follow that with some yummy fro-yo! Ours was like an ice cream candy bar! (The snickers topping was phenomenal.)

Had to end the weekend with some pool time! Of course, I got burned.


Ok ok, I'm a terrible blogger. As of late. I'll do my best to try and do better. But, exciting news! Jenny Marie Art is now an official sponsor of at Steoffrey Language! Yay. I'm pumped. So check out my sweet animated gif and then read about Stacie and her adorable little family. Yay!

WHOA. Major chalk love.

Are these not fantastic? I am in awe of these free handed chalk illustrations by Dana Tanamachi. Lettering in general is beautiful, but when it's done with chalk? Oh my heart be still.

Weekend recap

I'm not a huge fan of last minute change of plans. That happened a lot this weekend; God is definitely testing my patience. (:

On Friday night, I gave the boy a for-no-reason present (those are my favorite [please excuse his hat hair, haha]).

Then we ate some pot roast, I attempted to make Loveless Cafe biscuits (major fail) and then went to see Bridesmaids! This is what we thought of the movie.

On Saturday, we had big plans for a great day date, but then he had to work. I was bummed, but then I got to sit by the pool. That didn't last for very long, for 2 reasons. 1. It was grossly hot out, and I don't like the heat (however, I'm Nicole Kidman-white and need some major color on my skin) 2. I smelled. The heat, plus my nasty b.o. grossed me out. (maybe this is tmi? I'm sure you don't want to know that I smell after a day and half of now showering. but, deal with it.)

I also made a decently yummy baked oatmeal dish. I think it would have been better if my raspberries wouldn't have gone bad so quickly. It needed more fruit. But it looks pretty. (:

Saturday afternoon I had the pleasure of spending with one of my best friend's mother. We sat on the porch for about 3 hours chatting and then I stayed for dinner. I love that I can do that when my buddy isn't even there. (: I had major difficulty staying awake to watch my man on saturday night live, but I made it. This was my favorite skit on the finale. His opening monologue was pretty funny too. 

Hope everyone's weekend was awesome!

Girly vs. Tomboy

I grew up in a sports-afilliated household. My dad was a sportscaster for a local TV station and my mom was a professional golfer. I attended my first baseball game at the tender age of 2 weeks. (Yes, I was 2 weeks old!) I played baseball/softball for many years. Gave golf a shot, wanted to try football but I wasn't allowed. (What is that about?!)

Saying all of that, I find it hard to be more on the girly side of things. I do my best sometimes (especially on date nights!) to do the dress-fingernails painted-hair done-makeup on-bit. (Never do I do the high heel bit.) Sometimes, I fail. I just can't help but be drawn to the tomboy look. Alas, another look I just can't help but loving. (Minus the shoes and notebook.)

(Check out each piece over at A Cup of Jo)

Which one do you lean towards more?

I can't remember the last time I was on a slip-n-slide. But today, I have the urge to be back on one.

However, my one condition, that I'm sliding in rainbow paint.

Tina, you fat lard, come get some DINNER!

Letterpress, hot pink edges & a glasses-wearing llama = mind-blowing business cards.

DIY...Shower Curtain?!

I am getting so bored with my dull, striped shower curtain. Here's my chance to change it up a bit! A Draw-It-Yourself shower curtain from Poketo. Brilliant! 

PS. Another awesome shower curtain!

No Strings Attached

The boy and I watched "No Strings Attached" last night. Hilarious. The movie has awesome one liners.

My favorite one-liner: all the girls are laying around, moaning because of their period. One of the roommates says, "Ugh, it's like a crime scene in my pants." HAHA!!! Funny right? No? Go watch the movie.

Nashville Skyline

(all pics taken with my iphone)

So happy for Billy and the life adventure he's about to experience (whoa, cheesy hallmark card anyone?)
Loved our mini-vaca to Nashville!! 

Bucket List

I'm adding "Bluebell Wood" to my bucket list. This place is beautiful, I'm dying to see in person!
