Hope you are all having a wonderful week! Despite the beautiful fall weather here in Ohio, I've been in a bit of a fall funk and super slacked on my Zumba and Kickboxing lately. I'm making it a point to get back on the band wagon this week!
Overall it's been a pretty laid back week for me, just the usual working and date nights. I did start and finish a CRAZY book this week called Gone Girl. Have any of you ever read it? WOW. I won't say anything else because I don't want to spoil anything, but it was crazy!
I gave into my inner teeny-bopper and had to get the new Taylor Swift cd on Monday. I an original T. Swift fan, like "When you think Tim McGraw" so I am of course slightly underwhelmed with this poppy unoriginal Taylor Swift stuff. However I do hear some of the old Taylor here and there. I love the track "Treacherous" especially the demo version. Oh if only old country simple songwriter Taylor would come back for good.
Of course I treated myself to #maskmonday with my favorite Amika hair mask and this new Karuna mask that was in my recent Birchbox. The face mask was really unique and initially I did like it but I woke up Wednesday with a major breakout where I don't usually breakout. I'm not sure if it was the mask or not, or if it brought the acne to surface but it was the only thing different about my routine.
I am sure if you read my blog you know by now Thursdays and Sundays are date night for me and the boy. Our schedules ALWAYS conflict so these are literally the only two days a week we can guarantee time with each other. We call them date nights but sometimes its just a night in on the couch with some carry out and Tosh, John Stewart, and Stephen Colbert. Thursday was one of those nights in. I threw on some comfy leggings, a vneck tee, and this vest tunic. Felt like I was in my pj's but acceptable enough to make a few errands.
Last week I got together with my three best friends and we took our fourth bi-annual picture. Our lovely friend Heidi took it for us (check out her stuff HERE).
We took the first picture in 2006, our graduating year for no reason other than wanting a picture. It was taken with a disposable camera, one shot and we just loved it.
After that we decided we should reenact the shot every other year, so the next two pictures in 2008 and 2010 were taken at the same spot as the first by our dear friend Michael.
This years was much harder to accomplish with two out of four of us living in NYC. This one ended up being pretty last minute, and at a new location but we are happy to get one in before 2012 comes to a close.
I love looking at these pictures and seeing us grow and change from carefree teenagers into young women. I love my best friends, they are smart, beautiful, funny, and lovely in every way.
I am so happy I scored this gorgeous red dress from Dorothy Perkins for mine and the boy's four year dating anniversary this year. Our first official date was Christmas day four years ago, where we got chinese at some run down hole in the wall place. Every year since we have gotten Chinese (or something similar) on Christmas day or Eve to celebrate. This year we are going out somewhere a little nicer on Christmas Eve and dressing up. I was dead set on a red dress because I don't own one, and it would be so perfect for the time of year. I LOVE this dress in every way! Bodycon styles really flatter my body type and I am excited to add some great gold jewelry like a statement necklace. It's so elegant but sexy. Perfect four year dress ;)
I hope you lovelies had a wonderful week and great Sunday!
