My Weekend

Went to the new Shipyard Emporium Saturday afternoon with my girlfriends. It's amazing! The food is sooooo good. I highly recommend.

Flights of beer (not mine).
Lasagna rolls
Maine lobster pizza
There's a ton of free samples, a deli area, a brewery, a selection of pickled items to buy and all kinds of cool stuff. The prices were VERY reasonable.
Review for this curling iron.
I used this iron for the first time last weekend and it's A-MAZING! Worth the price. I burned my fingers a bunch of times, so make sure you use the protective glove that it comes with. It gave my hair these gorgeous loose curls that never fell out! I tried to snap a pic in my bathroom at work. I'll take another next time I use it.
A lil' Spanky for your Monday!

My Weekend

Friday night. PR's with friends. Beer, tequila shots and burritos-YUM!
Bryan and I had a lake day Saturday. Since the water was really low in some areas of the St. John's Lake, we got stuck, but we had alot of fun anyway! It was a gorgeous day.
Pedicure and shopping on Sunday. Then to my friend's daughters birthday party.
American Eagle jeans, Old Navy v-neck tee, Nine West grey suede flats, Express scarf
Pretty pink tree outside the mall.

Oh, sweet Friday. 5:00, where are you?

My Desk. Sigh.

It's a gorgeous 77 degrees here in Orlando. The weather outside is beautiful! I want to be out in it and not stuck behind my desk.

Side note: Look at the keyboard my IT guy gave me for work. It's the "Wave". Weird, huh? It's hard as hell to type on.
He hates me.

Weekly Splurges

I'm about to go into lock down mode with my credit card, since I plan on moving by April (unless it's house purchases, of course). So, in anticipation of that, I'm going on one last shopping spree.

Express (tops)


American Eagle - Use code 29864001 for 20% off.

Old Navy (extremely cute shorts for Spring/Summer) Cheap, too.

(Scored this awesome Juicy Couture bag for $150!)
And a couple of Spring/Summer color J Crew cardigans - I've been very into cardigans lately, I can't seem to stop buying them.

Whew. I'm done until Christmas! (Yeah, right....)

There's an app for that

I'm in the process of upgrading my 3G iPhone to a 3GS (it's only $49 if you renew your contract). I've been clearing out my phone and backing it up so that I can sell it on eBay. I thought I'd share some of my favorite apps.

*Shazam - find out what somg is playing, the artist, album, etc. (lite edition is free)
*Period Tracker - obvious (lite edition is free)
*Camerabag - let's you add filters to your photos, as well as borders. ($2.99 but well worth it)
*Check Please - tip calculator (free)
*Drinks Free - recipes for every cocktail imaginable (free)
*Urbanspoon - gives you the names of local restaurants, contact information and reviews (free)
*AroundMe - wherever you go - this app will tell you where the nearest bank, grocery store, pub, coffee shop, etc. is (free)
*iEmoji - emoticons (free)
*Words with Friends - play online scrabble with your friends - or a stranger! I'm ADDICTED. (free)
*MPoker Lite - for you poker players out there (free)
*Mint - keep track of ALL your finances - genius (free)

Also, for you AT&T users out there, I called today to try and lower my bill and was told that there is a new offer out there. For $20 a month (which I already pay - for unlimited texting), this new plan offers unlimited texting AND unlimited mobile to mobile ON ANY PLAN. So, for $20 per month, you get unlimited texting and unlimited mobile to mobile on any plan. Totally worth it, since my boyfriend is on another service plan and I was always going over my minutes.

Diet Fail

Hold the cheese and add the...shake?

These peppermint chocolate chip shakes from Chick-Fil-A are my downfall! I'm addicted to all things peppermint. This hits the spot.

Hey, at least I took the stairs today.

Oh, and don't look at those fries. Don't you dare. They're not really there. They. Don't. Exist.

My (Valentine's Day) Weekend

Happy Valentine's Day!

I made my boyfriend his favorite candy ever - Reese Cups! I blogged about this last week but I wanted to share my final masterpiece.
I doubled the batch so they came out huge (and nixed the pink chocolate idea). All in all, they were extremely easy and fun to make - and I used a jar and a half of peanut butter! They were delicious. He loved them.

We went to the Magic game on Sunday at the new Amway Arena (we won against the Lakers!) but spent most of our time at a gorgeous outside bar that overlooks downtown Orlando - The 180 Lounge.

My breakfast. Egg, tomato, cheddar and bean spread on a jalapeno bagel. With an organic chocolate chip cookie from one of my favorite places-Drunken Monkey. Yum.

On another note: Spanky thinks it's too cold to get outta bed!

Valentine's Day

My boyfriend LOVES Reese Peanut Butter cups. So, in honor of Valentine's Day I'm making him homemade ones-from scratch! Those who know me can tell you I can burn water and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing in the kitchen, but I'm going to try this recipe out.

I'm buying pink chocolate as well, so they come out pink. For those of you whose boyfriends also love Reese Peanut Butter cups, but you'd rather buy them, try buying these-they rock. I gave them to my guy when I came back from Atlantic City this past December and he LOVED them!
