Weekend Roundup: "We're good."

My girlfriends & I have been talking about a Vegas trip for ages. And this weekend it finally happened!

As expected, the trip was short, but contained no shortage of excitement...

+ endless laughter
+ sing-a-longs while getting ready
+ heel exchanges
+ dancing to our hearts content
+ late night snuggles
+ a sprinkle of bad decisions
+ (several) cocktails

In the end, we all got back home exhausted, bodies sore from walking/dancing, some of us with a little more cash, & filled with new "remember when" stories.

{gorgeous orchid arrangement in our lobby}
{missing kuki-chan}
All in all, a successful Vegas weekend. 
Can't wait to do it again soon!

Make it last forever, friendship never ends.

Oh, Honey...

An intense craving for honey led to baking biscuits! 

I love to cook, but I am admittedly not the best baker. 

Baking requires a lot more patience & precision than I am willing to give it...
so I used Trader Joe's Multigrain Baking & Pancake Mix! 

Yes, I made a dough heart. <3

Funny enough, I ended up burning the biscuits a bit. Nothing too detrimental, but further proof that I'm not made for baking! Oh, darn.


But I they did the trick--honey craving fulfilled!!

One day I'll make these from scratch. 
One day...

St. Paddy's Day!

Kiss me, I'm Irish!

No, but really...I am! 

25% to be exact, and ever since I was little, I've loved St. Patrick's Day!

+ Green Everything
+ Four leaf clovers
+ Corned beef & cabbage 
+ Pots-o-gold
+ Leprechauns 
+ Kisses

...what's not to love???

Not to mention all the green beer I get to enjoy now that I'm an adult!

Here's my St. Paddy's Day recap...

Accessorize accordingly.

Fun socks, of course.

Hope you all had an great St. Patrick's Day!!

Comic Relief

Some comic relief in the midst of a lot of craziness this week...

If this doesn't make you laugh, I don't know what will. 

Like many of you, I have been very interested in the discussion regarding Joseph Kony, Invisible Children, & the Kony 2012 campaign. And although this blog is not meant for political/world analysis, I feel it is important to acknowledge an issue that became viral directly because of social media. 

It has become a tremendously complex topic, so all I will say is this: 
Spread awareness, but stay educated. 

Many nonprofits and organizations support the same cause in different ways. Whichever you choose to support is your prerogative. Remember to do your homework.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
- Mahatma Ghandi

Happy Friday.

Secret to Happiness

I had another post planned, but a friend shared this & I had to pass it on. 

A 100 year old man shares the secret to happiness...

The answer is simple: go find what makes you happy.
Time flies by so quickly. Don't waste it on nonsense.
And no matter where you end up, never forget where you came from.
Happiness is your birthright.
Your family & friends will help you find it.

Happiness is your birthright.
Here's to happiness, every day.
