Girls Night Out!

Last nights GNO was so fun and much needed. It had been way too long since I had seen these faces


These are my dear friends Heather and Amy! I met Amy on the very first day of college when we lived across the hall from each other. We were both distraught about having to leave our boyfriends in our hometown and the bond was formed. Heather and I both majored in Fashion Merchandising and she was a lifesaver our Senior year of college. We had many Elvis movie marathons in her dorm room! Good times! Girl Happy was our favorite.

We had dinner at a new place on The Plaza called Ingredient! I was excited because they had a gluten free menu. I ended up having a pizza with basil pesto,grilled chicken,portabello mushrooms, and apple smoked bacon. Yumm!!


After dinner we went to Reverse to have some mojitos. We were in a deep conversation when this guy decided to bust in and wouldn't leave! It was so annoying. We kept dropping hints that we hadn't seen each other in a long time and were trying to catch up but he just wouldn't get the hint. We gave him a hard time that he needs to brush up on his "pick up" skills considering he sat with three very happily married girls! Ha!

I made sure to have them take a picture of me in my new dress from Target

It was really simple to make it shorter...I literally just cut off the bottom ruffle and now I have some cute fabric to make a headband and maybe a necklace.

Amy just got back from visiting her inlaws in New Zealand and brought me back the cutest purse for my birthday!

(I have tried way too many times to rotate this picture and it will not change...grrr!!) It is an owl purse if you can't tell. The wings are zippered pockets. I can't wait to use it.

Tonight I finally went back to yoga and my body was thanking me big time. It had been since January and I can't wait to get back to doing it once a week. I wish that zen like feeling could last all week!

This weekend we are going to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D, moving my grandma into a new apartment, and going to some friends cd release party! Hopefully I can find some time in between to craft! What does this weekend have in store for you?

XOXO
