Catching Up

Hello friends.  I feel like my little blog hasn’t felt much love this week!  I’m telling you, getting used to working full time is kind of a bigger adjustment than I anticipated. Well, that and the fact that Austin has been off work all week (not fair!), so I have been wanting to spend all my free time with my lively accountant husband.  One day I will have to tell you about the time Austin was deemed the liveliest accountant ever.  

This week feels like it was a total whirlwind, but I am going to attempt to hit the high points…
On Thursday night we cooked a stir fry recipe from a recent Southern Living and my favorite “Unfried Rice” from Daily Garnish.  It was delicious and packed full of veggies. 


Friday was a very special day for my sister-in-law Courtney.  She got her Aggie ring!  Aggie rings are a BIG deal at Texas A&M, and we are so happy for Courtney.  Austin even got to be in College Station to celebrate with her.  The Aggie ring is a universal symbol of the Aggie family, and every Aggie I know wears his or her ring with pride.  Here is a link if you would like to know more about our little rings made of gold. Congratulations Courtney!

I managed to make the best of being stuck in Dallas on Courtney’s ring day and had a very successful lunch break at Northpark.  I popped into Anthro to use my birthday coupon and got some perfume and a cute dessert plate.  I have been collecting plates for several months for a plate wall I am planning in our dining area and this little beauty spoke to me yesterday.  {pic from}

I also stopped at Talbots to see if by chance I could find an Easter dress.  I don’t think I have ever in my life not had an Easter dress this close to Easter, but I am happy to say Talbots delivered.  I happen to love Talbots, by the way.  My mom has always always always shopped there for as long as I can remember and everything about the brand is classic in my book.  Can’t wait to wear my pretty pink dress next Sunday! 

I lucked out and had a really sweet sales girl helping me.  She informed me that the dress was 25% off, then I got another 10% off because I have a Talbots Red Rewards Card and then another 10% off because it was my birthday month!  Yay for birthday discounts. 

Today I enjoyed some much-needed pool time relaxing.  It was pure bliss.  The weather here in the big D is absolutely perfect for laying out today. 


I also got a package in the mail from my Mom!  It contained April’s card – this one may be my absolute favorite yet!  It also had a PRECIOUS blue jacket, which coincidentally, is also from Talbots.  Great minds think alike :)  I adore it and cannot wait to wear it to work on Monday.  I will definitely be taking an OOTD picture. 


Tonight my plans include finishing up some preparations for tomorrow’s shower and making some cards with my new goodies from Paper Source.  Sounds like a perfect Saturday night in to me!  Hope y’all are having a lovely weekend.
