Friday’s Five

Hey Cats!

Happy Friday…we made it! I feel like this week has flown by, which is great because I’m looking forward to a fun and relaxing weekend. I’m going dancing with some new friends tonight, and then Saturday I plan to lay by the pool until I finish my book, or until I finally reach an acceptable level of tan, whichever comes first.

Here’s what I’ve been loving this week!

1. Fruity Ice Cubes

I saw these pretty little ice cubes on Ashley Brooke Designs’ Instagram a week or so ago, and I died. 1. They’re beautiful, 2. This looks like a foolproof way to have infused water whenever I want. I had every intention of making these, so I bought raspberries, lemons, and limes at the grocery store. But then I got home and realized that I don’t have ice trays. And then, I went back to the grocery store in the middle of the week because I only had two types of cheese (THE HORROR), and I could not find ice trays anywhere. So we will try another store on another day.

2. Woods comma Elle, Inspirational Figure.

elle-woods2 I found this Buzzfeed article that shares 23 Important Life Lessons You Learned from Elle Woods. You may or may not know that it’s my not-so-secret life dream to be Elle Woods, so obviously I loved it. I used to watch Legally Blonde about once a semester to keep me from giving up, not even a joke.

3. Marley Lilly Downtown Tassel Crossbody

I love my classic monogrammed clutch  from Marley Lilly (you see it in about 75% of my Instagrams), but I’m also obsessed with this new Downtown Tassel purse. It’s a little dressier, and lately I have been fond of the initials rather than the traditional monogram. Not that I would ever turn either one down. This would be so cute for a night out, gameday, or just when you don’t want to carry your huge bag around!

4. Wall Decor

I have been wanting an animal head decoration on my wall for quite some time. That sounds so weird. But you have this photo for reference, so you know I’m not a freak. I like the deer, but I also like this golden cow skull from Benevolent Jewels! This would be cute wedged somewhere in a gallery wall! I like it because it’s like me- a little bit country, but a little bit glam, too. P.S., Benevolent Jewels has totally re-vamped their site, and it’s fabulous! Head over and check it out!

5. Life Saying

i do what i want

I found this on Pinterest the other day, and it made me think of myself. The other day, I told my friends that “I just have this thing where I don’t do anything I don’t want to do”. Once you get to that point in life, it’s just great. So go do whatever you want this weekend, I sure will.

That’s all for meow!

Monday’s Musings

Hey Cats!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend- I sure did! After work on Friday, I went to hang out with my bestie Ashley and some of her friends. Then on Saturday, we went to brunch at LaMadeleine- their eggs Benedict is served on a croissant instead of an English muffin, and I LOVED it. Then later, we headed to downtown Houston for the Garth Brooks concert! It was an awesome show, and both Garth and Trisha Yearwood were fantastic! We’re already planning to go see Garth at the Houston rodeo next spring…he told us he would be there.

As fun as this weekend was, it was also really tiring! I took a two hour nap yesterday, and went to bed early, because I was exhausted last week, and I can’t do it again. So that’s why I chose this quote this week:

I’m hoping that this Monday is short and not too full of surprises. I’m finally getting the hang of my job, so there shouldn’t be too many things that are out of the ordinary anymore. And strong coffee and a good outfit always helps, especially on a Monday. Here’s hoping that a short Monday with strong coffee and a well-put together outfit starts your week off right, too!

That’s all for meow!
