I Love the Weekends ♥

Well, I am quite proud of myself because I actually took the time to bake this weekend! Sounds silly, but I feel like I never get a chance to try out all these great recipes I find online, so I was so happy to finally have the time to try one out.

I made Blueberry Bars - a recipe posted by Ashley of "Turquoise and Teale"
You can find the recipe here.
They didn't turn out quite as pretty as Ashley's did, but they were DELICIOUS!

Two thumbs up from Aaron (quite an accomplishment as he is quite critical when it comes to food) ...and we may or may not have eaten the entire tray over the weekend ;) Oops.



Saturday's Outfit - Jean jacket/American Eagle, Black tank/H&M, Grey maxi skirt/Target,
Charm bracelet/Tiffany's, Aviators/Tom Ford

Aaron tried to snap a cute picture of Deedee and I - she is getting so big so fast, we want to make sure we have lots of pictures of her as a puppy. Anyways, she didn't quite cooperate and I ended up with a stick-mustache.

Second one turned out a bit better, although she is a bit of a brat and refused to look directly at the camera. Oh well, close enough ;)

Best buddies <3

Both making the growl face (aka Deedee's "mean" face) - see her little teeth peeking out. It's quite hilarious actually as she is loosing her baby teeth right now and kind of looks like an old man without his dentures in.

Saturday's Outfit (puppy photobombed) - Sweater/Express, Skinny jeans/Old Navy, Bracelet/American Eagle, Wedges/Target

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Saturday Happenings

Hey ladies! Just wanted to share a bit from my weekend...Saturday was the only eventful day - spent Sunday relaxing and watching football!

The first thing I did on Saturday was attend the open house for Dance du Soleil Studio.
My gorgeous friend, Leyla, is the owner/director and classes began as of this Monday, so if you live in the Columbus area, you should definitely check it out! She is an amazing dancer and teacher, and offers all types of classical dance and exercise classes for adults (ballet, jazz, belly dance, yoga, pilates, etc).

I will be teaching a bit once my work/school schedule settles down - I can't wait to start dancing again. I basically grew up in a dance studio and minored in dance during college, so I have missed it so much since I moved to Columbus and started working full time!

Check out her website here...

Saturday evening, Aaron and I went to the Columbus Microbrew Festival at the North Market. I am not a beer fan, but he loves it (I call him a beer-snob ;) so I suggested we go since I knew he'd have a good time. I tried a couple things - but hated them all. least I tried ;)

The food, on the other hand, was amazing. I got chicken, pierogies, and leek salad from a Polish vendor and basically inhaled it - so delicious!! Not so diet-friendly though, so back to the gym this week!

Snapped a quick picture of my two loves snuggling together <3

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Did anyone pick up anything from the Phillip Lim Collection at Target on Sunday? I debated going, but didn't see anything that really struck me, so I ended up passing.

I have purchased a few new things over the past couple weeks that I want to share, but that will all be in the next post, so stay tuned! ;)

Lo & Sons Giveaway at Style Me Swanky

Hey ladies!

Just a quick post to let you know about the amazing giveaway that one of my favorite blogs...Style Me Swanky... is hosting thanks to Lo & Sons! I'm super excited about this giveaway becuase I have been lusting over the "OG" Lo & Sons bag ever since she first posted about it.

On Style Me Swanky, Megan says...

I'm sure many of you are familiar with Lo & Sons, an amazing designer bag company that was created by a mother and her two sons.  Their bags are highly functional, yet lightweight and water resistant.   The best part is that these bags look incredibly stylish and will satisfy even the most organized-obsessed due to their many well-placed compartments.

Photos are from the giveaway post on Style Me Swanky

Pictured above are the OMG and the OG, respectively. I believe the OMG is a bit smaller, but not by much. I think either one is a great investment piece. 

The bags are available in six different colors, but I have to say, I just love the black.
 It's simple, classy, and perfect for so many occassions...travelling, class, the gym, etc!

Be sure to head over to Megan's blog and enter...and follow her while you at it - she has a great blog, fun posts, and awesome sense of style! :)
