Insta-Recap {Weekend in Dallas}

My weekend according to Instagram.

Everyone, meet my bsf's Amanda Rhea. 
She gets married in a little over a month, so we met in Dallas for a semi bachelorette weekend and so she could take her bridal portraits.


 Hanging in the hotel before a full day of shopping! 

If I wasn't married, I assume my home decor would look extremely similar to what this hotel was doing. Super girly but super modern.
The walls remind me of a Victoria's Secret bag - love them!


Night one out at Sfuzzi's. 
Great pizza.

Night two out at Gloria's. 
Super good mexican food.

{Necklace // borrowed shorter one, Body Central long one} 


What a score I found at the Nordstrom Rack. 
Navy Sperry's for only $33! 
I couldn't pass them up. My collection was needing a little more glitter.

 

I also found these beauts at DSW. 
I have been on the look out for the perfect pair of nude Jessica Simpson heels, and these were exactly what I was imagining and for only $44.
I mostly needed them for Amanda's wedding, but I know these bad boys will get a lot of play.

Such a fun I weekend! 



Tuesday CT and I leave for NYC bright and early at 6am.

Five for Friday {co-host}

Happy Friday everyone!! 

This week I'm teaming up with the lovely ladies below to co-host 
Five for Friday! 
Since my blog is a lifestyle blog, here are 5 things going on in my life!

1. I am currently in route to the Big-D {Dallas} and I'm looking forward to checking out the Container Store, H&M, and Charming Charlie. 
My husband and my wallet may not like it, but I'm a newbie to their stores and I'm excited to check them out!


2. I am patiently awaiting the arrival of my new chevron Erin Condren Life Planner. Each time I step foot into Hobby Lobby, Michaels, or Walmart I'm spending a little too much extra time in the scrapbooking/office supplies section. 
Since ordering my planner I have purchased new pens, new washi tape, new stickers, and new stamps to help decorate it! 
I'm obsessed. 



3. CT and I just finished up round two of fertility treatments which unfortunately was ineffective this cycle. Through all of this, Jeremiah 29:11 has been pulling on my heart strings. 


 Some day I'll write a post about the process we are going through, but I don't think I'm there yet. 
I just gotta keep on truckin' and have faith that our time is coming! 


4. This week I tried a new recipe thanks to Pinterest! 
{Click here to follow my boards}
Taco Spaghetti was what I experimented with via So, How's It Taste?



CT is extremely picky with his foods but he ate this with no problems!
I followed the directions exactly except I added half a can of rotel and skipped the olives. It was delicious and we had left overs for days!


5. I'm counting down the days . . . 
4 days until our 2nd wedding anniversary!
 We will be celebrating in NYC for the week and I couldn't be more excited!
Shopping, baseball, fireworks, and food. 
What more could a girl ask for?  


Feel free to click the pictures below to check out the other hosts.
Thanks for stopping in!

----------------------------------------------------------
  
This week, as I was searching high and low for a chip bag clip I couldn't find anything but I stumbled across some clothes pins. 

 
I knew they would be the perfect solution to preventing stale chips! 
And what better way to give them a little extra pizazz then add some washi tape! 



I then wanted to add some magnents to the back just incase they weren't being used on chips I could use them to help hold  some goodies on the fridge. 



The backs aren't the prettiest but they get the job done! 


My fridge now has a little bit of color on it! 

If you are into homemade gifts, I would recommend these! 
Super easy and super cute. 

I would also recommend when using washi tape on clothes pen, to use the 3/8 inch size of tape. It covers the pen perfectly with nothing hanging off the edge!

Also linking up with Wow Me Wednesday.
