Weekend Re-Cap

This past weekend was a little crazy. I finally got to see Django Unchained, and I must say it was amazing! I loved every minute of it...except for two parts where I had to cover my eyes. I thought Tarantino did a fantastic job with historical accuracy and just the writing was phenomenal. Has anyone else seen it? On Sunday we ventured to Saint Augustine, and there were so MANY people! We waited an hour for a table at the Columbia, and the meal was to die for (see the pictures below). Then we went over to the fort which was cool as usual. Finally we came home late last night. Tomorrow we are going over to Miami so I have it scheduled to post an outfit. Keep your fingers crossed for Florida State in the Orange Bowl!

Two Thousand Twelve + Quotes of the Week

Happy New Years Eve! 2012 was such a fantastic year. From Missouri to Oregon to Virginia to Paris I had a fantastic adventure. I even started this blog! I cannot wait till 2013 rings in, I cannot believe that this is the year I will be applying to college and making serious life decisions. I also cannot wait to continue this blog with renewed effort (that is one of my resolutions!). So for all 67 page views I have, check back! At the bottom of the inspirational quotes* is a collage of my year in review. I love every single person in these photos and I am excited to have another year with them. Have a great time tonight. x-o.

Sweaters in Florida

What do you do in December in Florida? Throw on a sweater and shorts, so you look winter-y but not too much. The weather here is still...warm. I wish that I was back in Paris where I needed boots and jackets, but alas I am stuck here. To make up for this, I put this outfit on with the inspiration of my new headband, which I am kind of in love with! Have a good day!     
{What You Need: Sweater (UO- Sparkle & Fade), Belt (Fossil), Jean Shorts (Marshall's), Headband (The Franklin Shops), Heels}

Pinterest Love

We have officially finished our projects in Tally! Yay! I will be posting pictures along with my outfit post tomorrow, which is my last day here. Sunday we are headed for Saint Augustine and then on home. We will then be in Miami for New Years Day, so there will be lots of pictures coming. It has been lovely in Tally, everyday I have been going for a walk around Lake Ella which feels amazing and is great exercise for me. I hope you all are having an eventful Friday! Here is my "pinspiration" for the week.

I just love her dress...and Paris.

Product Happy

I find it absolutely amazing how much better I have felt these past few days. We have just wrapped up a project at the townhouse (wainscoting in the dinning room) and now are putting our subway maps on the walls (I will post pictures later when it is all done!). I have been enjoying all of the bowl games, and I think my record in Bowl Mania is one of my worst ever! So please pull for Bowling Green, Duke, and UCLA today. Aside from that, here are a few images of products in my life that are inspiring me and making me happy! Have a thrilling Thursday!
