Quick Pics

I feel like there's so much to look forward to this month! I'm going to a really awesome zoo tomorrow (and of course, will have plenty of pictures to share!). I've had a dress picked out for it for about a month or so, now. Alright, so I bought it specifically with the zoo in mind. It's leopard print. What other place is more appropriate to wear that to?!

My cousin is getting married next weekend, so there's that to look forward to. I also bought a dress specifically for that. At first, I was going to go all out and order the red Taylor Dress from Windsor, but my logical side butted in and decided that it's probably a dress I won't ever really wear again and I should spend my money on a wiser choice of dress. I ended up ordering this lovely dress from Modcloth instead that I know I'll wear a whole bunch. It's by Trollied Dolly, who makes such adorable, retro-inspired dresses! I can't wait to get it in the mail!

There's also Father's Day and Chris's birthday coming up this month too! Things are going to get a little hectic, but it's all fun stuff, so it's fine!We're going to the casino with a bunch of our friends the weekend before Chris's birthday, which should be a good time.I'm also planning an epic bakefest for Chris's birthday. I literally have about 9-10 different things that I want to make. We're going to have a small party with his friends, so at least it won't just be the two of us stuck eating everything!

So that's what's in store for me this month, but here's what I've been up to lately, according to my Instagram and mobile pictures:

[I like to park my car at the beach, overlooking the water.]

[Chris climbing a trolley on one of our adventures.]

[I got my mom a strawberry hanging plant for Mother's Day and one of the strawberries was shaped like a heart!]

[I recently re-did this photo collage on my wall. This is the bigger and better version!]

[I was on a Tootsie Pop kick for a good week or so.]

[Chris's cat, who I constantly smother with snuggles and kisses, taking a nap.]

[Awesome rainbow the other day!! And yes, it was full on.]

[Grilled turkey legs and asparagus. GLORIOUS.]

I can't wait to share my zoo pictures with you all! I'll probably take hundreds and then not know how to condense them into a blog post that doesn't span pages and pages. Oh, the woes of blogging.


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun!!! And zoos are always awesome!!! Although, the leopard print WOULD fit pretty well in with going to a zoo, on the other hand, it might also be like taking an English person to visit the American Revolutionary War battlegrounds. Still, sounds like you have a good plan! :-) Yes, practicality is a good thing, but everyone has at least one thing that they wear only once in their life! It's still something that will be mostly one-of-a-kind, and who knows, there might be some perfect spot that you discover in the future that would be a perfect place to take pics in that dress. Just a little food for the mind! Enjoy your day at the zoo! I'm SO jealous!!!! And I want that cat!!! :-)

  2. Cute pics! but let me just say OMG I LOVE THE COLLAGE ON YOUR WALL! Yes, I love it. Thanks for sharing these adorable pics :)
