Happy Memorial Weekend

The long weekend was perfect! I finally got to celebrate my birthday with my closest family and friends.  Josh was wonderful and picked up a bushel of the most delicious crabs and cooked them himself.  We had so much to eat and drink.  Ashley make some delish cupcakes and my parents picked up my absolute favorite cake from Cakes Plus.  It was so nice to spend the afternoon/night with everyone.  We even managed to spend a few days sunning ourselves by the pool.  Getting severe heat rash was the only mishap...that stuff is prickly and uncomfy!

Luna and Dallas enjoying the birthday cake too!
Of course my fave beverage, blisteritas, made an appearance!

Coffee brought to me in bed...tastes way better than making it myself :).

A perfect match!

Little did I know that when I painted my nails yellow, it would be an exact match to my golden delicious apple!

I have been super busy these last few weeks with weddings, birthdays, Mother's day, etc. the polish has been quick and uninspired. Not even post worthy! I did find a color I'm in love's part of Essie's new summer collection. It's the perfect orange-red with a hint of pink!

Josh and I headed to Charlottesville, VA Friday to go to a friends wedding this weekend. Upon arrival, Josh surprised me with flowers, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne in the hotel room! He did well! We ended up going to Downtown Grille for dinner. Oh. My. Word. We had the best dinner in a LOOONG time. The mussels, calamari and scallops were to die for. BUT, the best part of the meal was the filet mignon. We were both in food heaven!

After dinner we met up with the bride and groom and the rest of the guests for drinks. 

Now back home celebrating Mother's Day with 4 wonderful Moms that are just AMAZING!

All in all a great weekend!

Blisterita Heaven!


Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo brunch of champions

Mini Vacay!

Greetings from the Outer Banks! We arrived safely at Josh's cousins house last night and were greeted the best way possible, hugs and Blisteritas! (Blisteritas are an amazing concoction of margarita and diced jalapeño peppers)

The whole reason for the trip is a friends wedding tomorrow, but we decided to make an extended weekend and take a few days to ourselves. Heaven.

We are blessed with amazing weather! Hello beach!

I got the idea for this From another nail design I saw on Pinterest. I used a crackle black polish to replicate the print. I think it worked really well! It turned out a little different than I had pictured in my head but overall it's fun and colorful.
