So, this Week...

This week was pretty uneventful. I was unfortunately sick most of it :( no fun! I am worried I have a sinus infection which means a possible trip to the doctors tomorrow for me because this girl starts spring break today at 12 and I refuse to spend it sick!!

Friday Night was spring cleaning at the church {:to get it all spruced up for Easter weekend:} and I went out to dinner with some of my friends, then came home and took a long hot bath while listening to...
I can't tell you the last time I soaked in a bath. It was so fab! Have you heard Adele sing this song? It is one of my favorites!

Then Saturday I left for my friends bachelorette party. You can read more about that here.
Monday we had a snow day! Insane considering it is suppose to be Spring! Apparently this year I need an Easter Parka not an Easter Dress! It was a pretty snow though and with being sick I needed that extra day to rest.
Tuesday after work my mom dropped by and we did some decorating brainstorming. I added a few more projects to the spring break to-do list and I hung this picture from my sweet friend! She said it reminded her of my blog. Isn't she the best?
Last night I had this yummy cheese, bacon, and mushroom quesadilla. Eat your heart out Rachel Ray :0) Who needs 30 minute meals when you can have one in 5?
Tonight I am very excited for. It is our Good Friday service at church which is one of my favorite services all year!

Alright I will stop the torture. I know my week was anything but exciting. Let's hope this next week goes at turtle speed and I have something more exciting to share Friday!

New App Icon

Ok so I learned something pretty cool today so I thought I would share with all my iPhone, iPad followers. You can now take me along with you as an app...
on your mobile device go to "View Web Version"

 Once on the web version on your iPhone or iPad scroll to the bottom and look for this button

When the screen below pops up click my picture and select "Add to Home Screen" My blog will then become an app on your Apple device that you can just click on.

Cool Huh?

This Weeks' Wardrobe

 I was talking to one of my besties the other week about how lazy I have been in getting dressed everyday for work. I have to say these What I Wore Wednesday posts have inspired me to try a little harder throughout my work week {:most days:}. I am also utilizing more of my wardrobe so I don't keep reposting the same outfits.

This is what I was sporting around town this week...
 I wore this to the bachelorette shindig this weekend
Dress: H&M
Heels: Nine West
Necklace: Charming Charlie

 This outfit was to travel down to bachelorette party in Baltimore
Sweatshirt {:with lace down the arms:}: Forever 21
Jeans: Just U.S.
Boots: Refresh on Amazon

 It may have been Spring but it was cold hence this workweek outfit.
Sweater & Tank: Target
Black Skinny Dress Pants: NY&Co.
Wedges: Target
Necklace: Kohls

Monday I had a snow day! Apparently mother nature wasn't aware that it was spring. I suppose that is what we get when we leave meteorology to a groundhog. I heard we will be singing "I'm Dreaming of a White Easter" Sunday morning in church....oh wait. 
Tuesday I got to pay a few bucks to wear jeans to work in support of Relay for Life.
Scarf: Target
Sweater: Forever 21
Jeans: Just U.S.
Boots: Refresh on Amazon
Watch: Fossil
My new Essie polish: Russian Roulette

Weekend Shenanigans

So this weekend was pretty eventful. It was bachelorette time!
My friend and her fiancé are getting married in 3 weeks so over the weekend it was time to celebrate!
{:Those are the future DeGraws:}

We all rode down to Baltimore in a white limo. Ok maybe into wasn't really a limo but rather a white 15 passenger van, but the point was we all rode down together! 
The bachelor and bachelorette parties were together and it was a surprise for the bride and groom. So that was fun and exciting since they didn't know where we were going or what we were doing. They were only told what to bring.
We took them to the Baltimore Inner Harbor.
When we got there the chicks and dudes checked into our hotel rooms and had fun glamming up for the night.
Then we surprised them with a dinner cruise around the harbor at sunset on this puppy.
Our table
With the wifey to be
Views from the boat balcony in the harbor
The crew after the cruise walking back {:minus me, I took the picture:]
But they look hott huh?
Then back at the hotel room it was gift time.

It was fun waking up in the city yesterday morning, but I must say I am glad to be home and sleeping in my own bed tonight rather than  on the floor :)

How was your weekend?

Sunday Seven 3/24

I hope your week was fabulous? If not, it's over right? I have also found Pinterest to be wonderful therapy for a bad day/week. So whatever you week has brought you through, remember you are fiercely amazing! :) 

So the pins..
{:Pinned Here:}
Loving this spring look. 
Perfect way to incorporate Spring when it doesn't feel so "springy" here in WV. 

{:Pinned Here:}
This pin tells you how to restore all those old dingy white under shirts.
I neeeeeeed to try this.

{:Pinned Here:}
How to hang a sweater so it doesn't stretch out the shoulders.
How smart is that?

{:Pinned Here:}
A Royal Empress Tree. How beautiful! The pin says it grow from Canada to Mexico and grows 10ft the first year. I am going to have to look into this!

{:Pinned Here:}
This website allows you to type in your shopping list and finds coupons. It is also 
F-R-E-E!

{:Pinned Here:}
This would be a beautiful centerpiece if you are having guests over for Easter next week!

{:Pinned Here:}
These bad boys are hott hott hoot

Happy Sunday!

My Week in Rewind

Ahh it's Friday and Spring Break is within reach. One more week to go.
I am 99.9% sure Spring Break was mostly instituted because they knew if not they might need to protect the students from teachers inflicting bodily harm on them. I'm JUST KIDDING....um kinda :-/

SO this week...
I found this wreath on Pinterest {:I even pinned it in my Sunday Seven:} and had to make is. So...

I started my Saturday off with a run to Michaels to pick up supplies. 
I couldn't be happier with the final product!

Then later that night I got to hang out with this sweet pea and her momma. We are not pictured because we were definitely not camera ready, but that's why we are besties. We can show up at each others homes looking a sight and not even think twice.

Sunday I went to my parents and had the best meal. 
My momma even got apple pie and ice cream for me {:MY FAVORITE:}! 
Thanks momma! I even got sent me home with leftovers. 

THEN the best part of my entire weekend!
I got this picture text after lunch with my parents!
My other bestie got engaged! Her now fiancé took her to Baltimore and his sister {:who is a professional photographer:} caught it all on camera! How awesome. So happy for them.

Monday night Gracie found her new favorite show. She literally sat here like this for a good 5 minutes. 
Sweet girl.
