Cheers to the Weekend


Last week was seriously one of the worst I've had in a LONG time. I'm sorry for abandoning the blog, but I took all I could do was scrape food together before passing out. 

Friday afternoon however, I got the weekend started right, with some nailpolish window shopping. I'm on a "don't paint my nails" kick until they stop peeling. (Ok, I totally JUST painted them, but it's coming off)

luxe effects anyone? I think I need them. 

I have no idea why they won't stop peeling, but that's a blog for another day. I gotta get them in shape for the Spring 2012 collection however. That moss green, the hot pink and the coral are to.die.for.
 After Mike got home, we called our friends Leslie and Derek and headed to Tasu for dinner. We had a vvvvvvvvvery interesting waiter, but also had a great time chatting and catching up. 

um, the ones with Jalepenos are amazing...

Saturday morning, while Mike worked on his MBA, I went and did a little shopping to get myself ready for spring. A new pair of jeans, some flowery tops, stripes, tanks, OH and the awesome cat tee from the Jason Wu collection at Target. 

I've wanted this shirt since I saw it, (IT LOOKS JUST LIKE OI) and I've even had my mom searching for it. It sold out all around North Raleigh and online, but I found it hidden in between tons of other white shirts in the sleepwear section. My apologizes to whomever hid it..but, ya snooze & ya lose. 

Afterwards, April and I headed to Wine and Design Cary for a new painting! I'll do a full post on this soon, cause it was super fun and we took TONS of photos, so it deserves it's own post. 


We met the boys afterwards for dinner and drinks at Brewmasters. 

what? we like guacamole!

Sunday morning, bright and early(ish) we went into Durham for a bit. We stumbled across a random bike race on 9th street, which kept us entertained for a bit.

before hitting up Elmo's  (LOVE THAT PLACE) for a delish brunch with Mandy and Austin.
diet coke & mimosa: be still my beating heart. 

cinnamon apple stuffed french toast. on sunflower bread...

On the walk back up 9th Street, we watched some more of the bike race (still going 2 hours later) before stumbling on Springtime Crack...ya know, Girl Scout Cookies. 

I did NOT get one of each. 
 Then! Sunday night, we headed up to April and Jeremy's for some Oscars action. Billy Crystal was awesome, as always, and the cirque du Soleil part was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.  After Mike was done with his paper, be brought up some Bud Light Platinum, which APPARENTLY everyone (but me) had been wanting to try. It tasted just like Bud Light, so Im'a be stickin with some good beers. Just sayin..

 Look at the cute table spread that April set up. Adorbs. 

It was seriously a great great weekend. 
What'd you get into?
