Hey guys! I hope your weekend was as relaxing as this little girl’s:
She’s a party animal, I tell ya. My weekend involved lots of lounging and relaxing and a little bit of silliness that I share with you guys in this post. I’m writing this while watching the Oscars and I’m loving the show. My fashion favorites this year include:
Stacy Keibler’s dress was absolutely gorgeous. She always looks so put together.
Jennifer Garner is my favorite Hollywood actress. She kicked butt as Sydney Bristow on Alias and now she’s happily married and raising three adorable little kids. Some people really can have it all. I thought she looked absolutely stunning in this gown.
Amy Adams is my favorite Hollywood redhead and forever Princess Giselle in my mind. I think she looked every bit the princess in this gown.
If you’ve been following my Twitter lately you know that I have been loving Lisa Johnson’s Modern Pilates DVD. Pilates is such a great workout, it works every part of my body and leaves me feeling strong and sore afterwards. I’ve been doing Pilates since I was a preteen so I know most of the moves by now. I was excited while doing Lisa’s DVD to learn some new-to-me exercise moves, including the one I videotaped myself doing. It’s just so fun!
Josh and I had the tasting for our wedding food scheduled this weekend. Due to some unexpected (but seriously exciting) things that came up I ended up running and grabbing a very stripped down version of the food to bring back to the apartment for Josh and I to try. For our starter course we’re having a spinach, walnut, berry, and goat cheese salad. For our main course we’re going to have pesto tortellini with goat cheese, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes as one food option and eggplant parm over fettucini as the second choice. Our tasting experience was a condensed version of the process but everything we tasted was absolutely delicious. We think our guests are going to be very happy with the food.
I spent some girl time with Lily over the weekend talking all things wedding. She was so sweet to let me raid her closet for a dress for my first bridal shower in Connecticut in two weeks. I’m so excited! We also got to use her new juicer. I loved her apple carrot creation. I definitely need to add more veggies to my smoothie rotation.
Lily made delicious egg omelets for us with spinach, onions, parsley, black beans, and goat cheese. It was such a yummy breakfast and definitely inspired me to get back to mixing veggies in with my eggs again. I’ve gotten lazy and have just been putting eggs on toast lately. As good as that tastes it tastes even better with all the extra food goodies.
Speaking of goodies, I came home from Josh’s today to a super sweet Valentine’s Day package from Josh’s parents. How amazing are they? This totally made my night and made me smile so big. I’m so lucky to have them in my life. I definitely already devoured one of those chocolate covered pretzels. They’re so good!
Question of the Day: What was a highlight of your weekend? Did you watch the Oscars? Who was your best dressed pick?
