Weekend | Review

I swear, whenever I have big plans to be outside and by the pool for an entire weekend Mother Nature laughs in my face and sends enough clouds and rain that I resign myself to staying in the apartment all Saturday and Sunday.  At first I wasn’t pleased (guys, I am so pale I need some healthy color stat) but there were a lot of nice lazy, productive and fun things that happened this weekend, too so I can’t be all that upset…

Sally and her boyfriend’s puppies made a rare weekend stay and since I’m the best aunt in the world I got to spend lots of quality time babysitting them, cuddling with them and working on my dog voice.  I also switched out my dark fall/winter nail colors for my collection of spring/summer lights and neons – I like to keep my seasonal assortment sitting out so I can admire them (true) and I’m inspired to change my color regularly.  Don’t judge me.  

AND I got to see one of my favorite Dallas blogger friends, Albertina of Mimosa Lane, for delicious lattés and a few hours of conversation at the Pearl Cup.  She’s kind of one of the sweetest people I know and after bonding over photography and taking the class together at the Spot Studio we became fast friends… She surprised me with a bag of homemade meringues that are now completely gone but were enjoyed while reading the latest (and fabulous) issue of F|D Luxe.  Check out Albertina’s bloggie today to learn how to make her yummy strawberry meringue triffle… Yum!

Aside from the above: new restaurants were visited, a birthday was celebrated, the bed was occupied for lots of naps, brownies were baked (at 8:30pm last night), Gypsy weddings were watched, and a new piggie necklace was worn non stop.  All in all it was a very nice but gloomy weekend.  How did you all fare?

    what a fun relaxing weekend, it was cold and rainy here in palm springs as well but I enjoyed every minute of it. My friend being as awesome as she is, pulled a few strings and got me into Coachella, so I was pretty psyched about going this year! Happy Monday!!!!
