Miscellany Monday {weekend edition}

Happy Monday Kids!
How was your weekend?

I finally started feeling better {yay!!} and went for a lil weekend away to way southern Ohio. It was a good time and the basis for my Miscellany Monday ;)

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

We went to  local bar and I tried their own Raspberry Wheat beer. It was delicious. {Plus I just recently got my hair done - I'm loving the fresh blonde!!} AND I'm rocking my Clueless tank top - my mom and brother have made fun of my countless time because they think it's a bit ridiculous. I, on the other hand... LOVE it. And that's all that matters. #cherismyhero #imnotlying {remember that whole Twitter hashtag thing that I randomly do while not on Twitter? Yup, just happened again. :)}

How pretty is this? Spent Saturday here - My bestie, Missy was having her family reunion here. And I tagged along. It was a day in the country eating delicious food, fishing {and I caught a fish!}, and just relaxing in the sun. Not too shabby.  

Friday night we went boating on the Ohio River. There's something so peaceful about being on a boat, in the evening, hanging out with friends, and just living. it was such a gorgeous night!

Boating - notice the wind blown hair?! {Before the boat ride I had nice, straight hair - after the boat ride it was back to it's usual wavy/curly self. Thank you humidity.} It was well worth it though!! And we acquired glow necklaces at the bar... I'm not real sure why?! But who says no to a glow necklace?

How cute is this lil guy?! He was wondering around at the farm we were at. He doesn't look very happy. 

So that was my random, miscellaneous weekend!
 How was yours?! What'd you do?!

Have a good week!!! 

Love always.

no rhyme or reason.

hi my little lovelies.
how are you?

i'm on vaca this week - BUT not the run away to wonderfully deserted island with a sexy boy by my side type of vaca. {boo. hiss.}

i'm on the go home to the country and wake up feeling miserable type of vaca. not. cool. at. all. vaca gods. ugh, what were they thinking?! 

however, despite the feeling of complete discomfort i do get to see my family, sleep in {when i can sleep - which is clearly NOT tonight}, get my hair done {i may not feel well, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do} hang out with my friends, and basically just be lazy. which is nice. 

i have missed you kids. when did life get so busy that i couldn't blog?! *sigh* 

today i don't have much rhyme or reason - just wanted to stop by and chat with y'all. and leave you with somethings i have found just lovely... 

i love this - very thought provoking. and it makes me want to run out and try something new {ahem,  being sick on vaca does NOT count.}

i have gone back and forth for a few years with having bangs and not - and i recently decided i think i want to try again with them. so there's a goooood chance that after tomorrow {when i get my blonde touched up} that i'm gonna chop some bangs... yep, i don't like ANYONE else cuttings my bangs. slightly anal, i know.

i love everything about this. messy hair. thick rimmed glasses. dip dyed hair. i dig it. i think it's a very fun look. i need to wear my faux glasses more - i love the look. {yup, i'm the weirdo who wears glasses but doesn't need them?! #dontjudge} - twitter hashtag just felt appropriate. #dontask

once i start feeling better - i'm going low carb. one of my sweet friends has done it for a year and she looks fabulous. i'm gonna give it a go - i think i can do it. {trust me, i'll keep you posted on it. the good, the bad, the ugly of going low carb.}

so classy and effortless. i absolutely adore this look.  white dresses are the epitome of summer, in my fashion heart of hearts anyhow. 

and with that said dollfaces, i'm out of here. it's time for me to attempt some sleep. {note to self - pain meds with caffeine in them WILL trump tylenol pm. no bueno chica. no bueno.}

hope y'all have an amazing rest of the week. 

love always.

Happy 4th of July to you!!

Hope you are having the most fabulous weekend - mine has been filled with...
 sushi {i'm slowly trying different kinds and i'm really enjoying it.}
karaoke {first time for this... and it was a blast! I made a total ass of myself - but it was so fun!}

I love this girl with all my heart. She is one of the strongest girls I've ever known and I am so proud of her for all she has done. If you are friends with her - pop over to her page and wish her a happy birthday. She deserves one of the best! Happy Birthday girlie!!
