friends, pins and photolings

I wanted to start off the post with the saying above because it is so very true. Today I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with some girls that have been through "it" with me. And we prove the saying true because although we work together, we don't see each other all the time, but we always know that if we need something - we can call on each other.

But other than being able to call each other whenever times get tough, we love planning nights out or weekend shopping sprees (mostly with Mexican food involved :)). This weekend was no different. We had planned a day of shopping and hanging out and we decided to meet at the Mexican restaurant for dinner. So we enjoy a festive meal with a not so festive waiter (typical according to our experiences) and as we are getting ready to leave, my friends say "Surprise! We're not going shopping...we're treating you to a pedicure!"

I was so excited!! I didn't know what to say! It was just what I needed and we had a great time. They truly are the best friends anyone could ask for and I love them dearly!

Our trips these days are a little different than those 5 years ago - mostly because both of them have babies now :). But we have a good time no matter the number of guests and this time we had Baby Carter join us for a pedi day :). He was absolutely perfect! I don't think I heard a single fuss! And what does no fussing deserve?? A photo opp! So Auntie Ebonn whipped out the camera (yes in the nail salon) and snapped a couple. He is just the most handsome baby!!

Again, we had a great time! I'm so blessed to have them in my life and can't wait for future Mexican meet-ups and spa days :). xoxo girls!


Ok, who else is completely obsessed with Pinterest??? You haven't heard of it? Well, get out from under that rock people because this could very well be the next facebook (well in terms of addiction level). I absolutely <3 it! My latest pin addiction is in my fashion and home boards...and to keep with the theme, I thought I'd snap a pick of my outfit for today's girl afternoon! {please ignore the incredibly filthy mirror}

I'm not one for accessories much, but I certainly changed that today! Forever 21 just opened at our mall and I was sucked in immediately when I entered the mall. I was there for like 2 hours!! Nonetheless, any future fashion postings will probably have more jewels because mama when jewelry crazy!

{For those even the slightest bit interested in my outfit above the shorts and banana republic, top is ann taylor, and flats are nine west.}

Ok. Moving on. So, after my F21 shopping extravaganza, I decided to come back and do a little photography practice. Below are some shots I took with a little help from Photoshop of course.

This sign was just boring, but I put a little punk flair too it and it turn out pretty cute!

These are the plants on my front step. I love a cute entrance way...

And finally my favorite...

I decided to walk around the middle school right up the street from my house and snap some shots. I saw this and it made me are just too much these days. Sadly, no Photoshopping was needed for this poor fella, but for those of you having a hard time deciphering the scribble, it says..."F*&K Hand (the name of the school) and "Suck D*$&ks" (and that's not ducks...). Ahh, the minds of middle schoolers...

Anywhoo, it's late and I've got a busy week. Toodles for now!! Night!
