Happy Tuesday Friends. I wore my favorite wedges again---I seriously cannot get enough! These are so comfortable and of course cute!

Belt: Anthropologie
Wedges: Steve Madden, buy here, seen here and here

Tonight is a good tv night---a new episode of Glee, Biggest Loser, and the new show Voice. I am going to have a hard time picking what to watch. What's on your tv agenda for the night?? Oh and we are having breakfast for dinner----yippee! 

Almost to the hump!

Hey guys! How was your Easter holiday? Mine was so nice. We went to church with my family and then to my mom's house for lunch. My grandfather was there. He has had some serious health scares in the past year so it's really great to see him getting stronger and being able to go places. Here are some pictures we took while we were there. My little niece is getting so big, I love playing with her!

Today when I got home from work there was a torrential downpour so I look at tad bit disheveled but here is  what I wore today. I have had this dress for month but never wore it because it's slightly see-through and I didn't have a half-slip until this past weekend when I picked one up at Target.

Dress: Banana Republic
Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Sandals: Steve Madden

I have been spending every weekend at the pool or on the boat and these pictures are the first where I can actually tell I am getting color. I know tanning is bad and all of that jazz but I love being tan and this time of year is the best for the weather here in FL. How do you all feel about tans? Do you prefer sunless tanners? This is always an interesting debate for sure.

Here's to a great week.

Outfit: Good Friday!

I'm going to start this post by saying it's 9 pm and I have been at the pool since 3 pm (after leaving work early) YAY! We did get off of work early for Good Friday so I ran inside, took some pics for my blog and headed to the pool in my fave bikini for this year from VS (pics to come laters)

Today was uber casual at work since the majority of peeps were off. I had to wear my new wedges again, I'm just so in love!

Top: Banana Republicc
Jeans: Express
Wedges: Steve Madden

The weekend is here!! Enjoy my friends!!

Go Miami HEAT! and Highlights

Friends, it's almost Friday! Today is game # 3 for the Miami Heat playoff (currently they are down by 2! Yikes!) so I decided to show my support today at work. I just got home from work/getting my hair done so the pictures are pretty sloppy---sorry!

Cardi: Express
Jeans: Express
Sandals (Not shown): Steve Madden

My good friend is a hair dresser so I went to her today for fine, natural highlights and a trim. We were initially going for ombre highlights but I didn't want to have all of my hair dyed darker so maybe next time. Here are some pictures of the highlights. I don't get highlights on the part of my hair because I hate the re-growth line. It's also nice how they aren't so "in your face" and just peek out here and there.

I'm off to watch the game, we are in the lead again---yay! Have a great Friday! Hang in for one more day!

Outfit: Florals for Spring!

We have made it through Wednesday. I felt like being girly this morning while getting ready and what screams girl more than a floral dress!

Dress: H&M, seen here
Wedges: Steve Madden Turnpyke

Ok another pair of awesome Steve Madden shoes in the collection. Seriously, I remember when I was younger, I loved his shoes but thought they were uncomfortable, no more my friend. Every pair I have bought in the last few years have been stellar. All day in four plus inch wedges and not one little pain or rub--nothing! I'm in love...L-O-V-E!

I have got to get off of this computer and go run. I have not worked out for two weeks, unheard of for me lately. I have just been really digging doing nothing (who doesn't right?!). I have a 5k with a co-worker on Saturday so I think it's a good idea to at least attempt a run or two this week. My problem is that I am currently not training for anything so I can find ways to stray much easier. When I am training, I actually schedule runs and workouts on my calendar so I really have no excuse. I need structure, I should not be left to my own devices. Off I go--Wish me luck!

Simple Outfit for a Tuesday...

Hey guys! I know I have been neglectful on posts lately so even though this is a pretty simple outfit, I'm still posting it. Today was a pretty uneventful day but last night the Heat won playoff game # 2 so I am stoked! Game # 3 is on Thursday and I am hoping for a four game sweep.

Jeans: Express
Top: Ann Taylor Loft
Sandals: Steve Madden Serenite

I am really in love with these sandals, if you are in the market for some flat summer sandals, give these a try. 

Almost to the hump! Hope the rest of your week flies by without a hitch!

Summer Dresses

I don't know if I have shared this yet but we have planned a cruise for the summer in June! I am so excited :-) I love shopping for vacations and my main focus for the cruise this year is sun dresses! Here are some I love...

Where else have you found some great sun dresses? I checked Victoria's Secret but not much struck me. I'd like a few more shopping options but couldn't think where else to look.

What's on your Summer Wardrobe shopping list??

PS--Miami Heat Playoff Game is on---Let's Go HEAT!!!! :-)

What's For Dinner...

Blog Friends --- I need help. The hubs and I are in a dinner funk. The dinners that have been solid in the past are now boring and overdone.

I have a request for you...you have all been so great with outfit and makeup advice, I'm hoping your dinner help will be the same. Post your most favorite dinner recipe ever below and hopefully we will all be able to get some great dinner ideas from one another. I'm hoping to have some great new recipes to incorporate into my weekly dinners (this after the second crappy dinner night this week). Who knows---if I get a recipe that is to die for, there may be a prize!

Can you help me out?? Please! Thanks!!

Goodbye Spring...

Today my friend and I competed in the Muddy Buddy Race at Disney in Orlando. The race went really well but was tough, my legs were killing me on the bike as all of the biking was on trails. We went alone so we didn't have anyone to take pictures so no pics for now, we have to wait until the professional ones get posted.

Tonight the hubs and I had a nice dinner at a small local Italian restaurant. We sat outside and it was so nice. I love this time of year--so enjoyable! Here in Florida it's safe to say that "Spring" has left the building. We are already into our 90* + highs during the day days which honestly I don't mind, it has been gorgeous.

I busted out my first maxi dress of the season. I have really been eying the maxi skirts that I have seen in various places. I think they can look really good at times (but I've seen them look not so good at times too). I'll have to try one on and see how I feel about it then. Have any of you tried them?

Dress: Express
Sandals: Steve Madden

Fitzgerald was so cute while I was taking pictures so I got a couple of him too.

I'm in for the night and going to watch When Harry Met Sally. I haven't seen it in so long and it's just one of those classic, feel-good movies. Good night all! Happy Weekend!
