Today deserves a big, huge "TGIF!!!!!"
How come it's always that the shortest weeks of work seem like the longest? 
It was so hard to go to work on Wednesday and I just want it to be the weekend. Whine.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Years! I was so exhausted so we just hung out at home but it was great. Being sick and busy at the new job has been kicking my butt, so I've had very little energy to do much of anything.

~Thank goodness for after Christmas sales! I scored big at the outlets. $140 for 5 sweaters, pair of pants, and sunglasses at Old Navy and LOFT Outlets. I haven't shopped for myself in MONTHS and really needed sweaters. I think I did pretty well!
Here's one of the sweaters from LOFT...if I could wear this every day, I totally would.

Excuse the terrible after-work face. Sweater: LOFT Outlet, Necklace: Limited (gift- thanks Chris ' Mom!)

 ~Our beloved Redskins won the NFC East!!! 6 years ago, I would have no idea what that meant but thanks to my boyfriend who is  obsessive dedicated to this team, I am a full on fan. It took me a couple years, but I've actually learned to like football. I even understand most of it. So much so that I have a Redskins snuggie (thanks, Dad!). You could say that it's good luck, because we've kind of won a LOT of games this season. 
Why do I choose to share these parts of my life?
~I've finally kicked the sick for GOOD. I've had a bad cold, ear infections, and food poisoning all in a row but I think it's finally all over. Lets hope I didn't jinx myself.

~Over the weekend we made ice cream with my new Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Maker Attachment!!!! This thing is awesome. If anyone's interested in reading a review, I'll totally post one. Also if anyone has any recipes or tips/tricks about this thing, please share! I've only used it once but the results were amazing.

French Vanilla.... with sprinkles, of course.
~Have you entered the giveaway at Glossy Blonde yet? If not, head over and do it! I'm giving away a Target gift card... who wouldn't love that? There are some other great prizes for grabs and some other lovely ladies to meet!

Linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday!


  1. I have a kitchen aid mixer and was debating on getting the attachment for ice cream. That looks really good!

  2. I'm glad you are finally feeling better! I'm so excited for the Redskins but scared that we might end up playing them in the Superbowl, and then I would be so torn! And I love your sweater!

  3. i love the loft! and love your sweater and the necklace!

  4. Ooo the ice cream looks good! I can't believe you made it yourself, that's awesome. Nice job on the shopping, you got a lot!! That sweater is pretty.

  5. I think your team is winning because you've got a quarterback from TEXAS! haha ;) Your ice cream looks so yummy!!! I want some, do you think it would make it in the mail? :( And I'm so glad you're not sick anymore!! I feel like you have been sick for at least a month solid.

  6. You so scored with Old Navy and Loft! That's almost an insane amount of things to get for $140! But I am glad that you're feeling better!
    xo, Maria
