High Five for Friday

I have been such a bad blogger this week. I promise to be better next week. I actually have been completely LAZY. I have not been to yoga ONCE. I planned on going this weekend but my sister called me yesterday and said she and my three nephews were going to my grandparents house in Tyler for the weekend and they would love for me to go. SOOOOO...I don't pass up a chance to see those little nuggets. I am beyond thrilled to see them. I wish Kallie was with me this weekend so she could see them.

Nolan, Colton & Leyton...OH.MY.GOODNESS.SO.STINKIN.CUTE. 

Colton...Look at that precious face. I could eat him up.

Ok, now onto my High Five For Friday. This week has really flown by! Linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk on this lovely day.

1. Girls Weekend
Kat & Me!

Last Friday, my best friend from college came into town for a girls weekend. We had an absolute blast. We went to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants we used to eat at in Austin, Matt's El Rancho. You can't go wrong with Bob Armstrong Dip (the ultimate queso) and margaritas. We then went to my brother, Gabe's, bar The Knodding Donkey for some drinks. He ended up getting off early and we went out with his friends in Uptown. We felt so old. We kept saying remember when we used to do this back in the day. We were very impressed with ourselves that we made it home at 3 am!

Saturday we got up and went to lunch at Houlihan's and went shopping! We purchased Kallie's flower girl dress for Katherine's wedding! It is BEAUTIFUL! I cannot wait until the big day to see her in it. I would show it now but I want it to be a surprise! We then went and tried on my the dress I am going to be wearing in the wedding as a bridesmaid! It is also beautiful! Cannot wait! We hit up North Park for a little shopping as well. Katherine got me a gift card to Ann Taylor Loft (my favorite store!) for designing her save the dates. It was the perfect present. I had no choice but to spend it on myself. Last summer when my family went to the beach I bought a white dress from there for our beach pictures. My favorite dress of all time! I ended up finding it in black and a blueish-purple and buying them! Oops! :-)

Can you tell I love this dress?

After shopping we went home to relax before going to Urban Crust in downtown Plano. LOVE this place. It was an hour and a half wait!!! We went upstairs to see if there was in room on the patio and there was, so we just ate and got drinks out there. Holy hotness but so worth it for not having to wait! We had pizza, Bellini's and ended the night with a little champagne! After that we went home and fell asleep watching Morning Glory! The end to an amazing weekend! 

  Yummy Bellini time!!


2. Brother/Sister Bonding
Blame the fogginess on Kat. She even took two. Haha!

I got to see and spend time with my brother Gabe the Babe! He just moved back to Dallas about 2 months ago and I am SO HAPPY he is close now! He is not only my brother but my best friend. So happy I got to spend time with him. He has always been pretty awesome but I am so impressed with what an amazing person he has become. Both my little brothers have grown into such amazing men. 

3. Emily Giffin
I love Emily Giffin's books! Her newest one came out on Tuesday. I went and got it at Target and was pleasantly surprised that they had signed copies! I went to her book signing two years ago and plan on going this year with a co-worker. I love Where We Belong so far. So well written!

4. They're following ME!!

I design invitations and such as a side thing and I use Paper Source paper. They have such amazing quality. I am always so inspired after going to one of their stores. Last night I looked at my Pinterest and Paper Source is now following me! I am so excited!!!

5. Co-Workers ROCK!!!
Yummy margaritas!!

I am such a lucky girl because of the simple fact that my co-workers ROCK! We literally all enjoy hanging out together after work hours. Last night we met up for happy hour. We love us some happy hour!

Oh Krispy Kreme!

My co-worker/office neighbor/SUPER SMART mentor, Steve, brought these in for us on Monday. Such a nice treat! Yumm!!! He did of course leave them in my office so I would be tempted to eat them all! Haha!

Cannot wait for 2:00 to leave to go to Tyler! I will soon be spending time with my precious nephews, sister and grandparents! Happy weekend all!!
