Anniversary Celebrations & Ladies Night

My weekends are usually for catching up on some sleep but I was awake at the crack of dawn on both Saturday and Sunday for no good reason. I did get some relaxing in between the celebrations.

Wedding Anniversary & Friday Favorites

Hope the week treated everyone well! I'm so looking forward to hopefully binge watching Orange is the New Black this weekend so I can finally get caught up but we'll see how that goes...

K and I celebrated our wedding anniversary on Tuesday (our wedding recap). Nothing special was planned because we have much bigger things in store for 4th of July weekend but I got home from work to some roses, a card, and dinner cooked. Chicken Cordon Bleu was on the menu...That was a nice treat and relaxing way to spend it on a week night.

Joining the lovely Amanda today for Friday Favorites.

I'm excited that another trip has been booked and confirmed for later this year. I know, I know we haven't even accomplished the Vegas trip yet but when a Southwest sale has cheap tickets we have to make quick decisions soooo we're heading to New Orleans for K's birthday in September!

Favorite Shopping Finds:
 Stocked up from Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale. Got all of this for $50 which is a steal considering one 3-wick candle is regularly $22.

Love this Beaded Bangle Bracelet set I purchased over the weekend. They're inexpensive but so pretty to dress up any outfit. 

Favorite Recipe:
I'm always looking for new smoothie recipe and next Im planning to try this Coconut, Milk and Almond Butter Smoothie from The Housewife in Training Files.

Favorite Fashion Find:
I tried on and almost bought this black Vera Wang jumpsuit over the weekend and now I'm thinking I need to go back to get it. I would have never thought jumpers would look good on me but I was surprised plus its super comfy and loose fitting.

Favorite Funny:

Have a great weekend everyone!

Friday Favorites + Coconut Rum Giveaway

Just another week that crawled by... but when I look at the big picture, it's like how the hell is October almost over already?

On Monday night, K and I celebrated the anniversary of when we met 6 years ago. He cooked up some surf and turf and I experimented making ravioli with sun-dried tomatoes (recipe to come next week). This was probably the fanciest thing we've cooked, ever!

Pretty excited I won a $100 gift certificate for  Has anyone every shopped on this site? Looks like an online Walgreen's but with a much bigger selection. Can't wait to do some "free" shopping for makeup and toiletries this weekend.

I'm also currently hosting a giveaway for 1 bottle of Blue Char Bay Coconut Spiced rum. I made a tropical martini over the weekend which was delish.

The giveaway is only open to US residents who are 21 years old or older. 

Favorite Funnies: 

Happy Friday lovelies!

Joining Amanda and Lauren today for their weekly Friday linkups.

Anniversary Weekend Festivites

What a whirlwind A-MAZING long weekend trip K and I just had to NYC for our anniversary. I will do another post about the trip itself and all the attractions we visited.

We started celebrating our anniversary at home on Thursday night. We planned to cook a nice dinner and have some of our wedding cake for dessert. 

 I came home to find some red roses and a gift certificate for the nail salon from K, which was very unexpcted since we were leaving on Friday morning for a long weekend of celebrations.

On Sunday (which was our actual anniversary) we explored the city all day and then got dressed to go out for a nice dinner. We started off at the Mandarin Oriental's Asiate Lounge that over looks Central Park. It's extremely expensive so we just had a cocktail and enjoyed the beautiful view.
We then walked over to the Time Warner center and had dinner at the Landmarc Restaurant

It was the best anniversary a girl could ask for and a super fabulous trip altogether. Joining Sami for Weekend Shenanigans (super late).

We were so sad to leave NYC last night and head back to reality. It was such an amazing and enchanting city.
