Did anyone else shed a few tears while watching Michael Scott's exit from "The Office" last night??

Especially this part.

We did. . .legitimately.






Happy Royal Birthday C-Mac!

Happy Happy 26th Birthday C-Mac!!!!!!! Officially in the 2nd quarter of your life.

Here C-Mac is, decked out in her top hat for a Royal Birthday Celebration (although this picture was taken for a derby themed party back in the glory days of college). C-Mac's co-worker brought in "birthday scones" this morning for her. And by that I mean, her gay co-worker thought everyone should get in the spirit of the Royal nuptuals and eat the way the brits would....and then got to work and realized it was C-Mac's bday. Those scones quickly turned into a morning bday celebration.

Don't worry C-Mac, the Royal Wedding doesn't overshadow your birthday in our hearts! (Only kind of).

Undeniable chemistry


Katie Couric and Matt Lauer may reunite. . .

Ohh the good old days!



Is this really end of April / beginning of May weather?!




Of course we pick a spot with brussel sprouts and bacon. . .

For our April dinner this month, KS and I headed to Gilt Bar last night. We were both a little nerv that the atmosphere would be more memorable than the food because it just had that "feel" ya know. . .

Fortunately we were proved wrong.

We started with Sweet Balsamic and Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil on Toast, immediately followed by Roasted Pork Meatballs with Grits, Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Blackened Cauliflower with Pickled Red Onion, Capers and Chili. YUM!

Besides the fact that we had the STRANGEST waiter (who literally straddled KS's chair at one point. . .), overall great dinner! Definitely a good spot to come on a double date, girls night, or to bring the parents to when they are visiting!

For the Win

In honor of the event on Friday. . .Kate Middleton for the Win.

Spotted on CH's blog!

So Blake is the newest member of the club. . .

Blue eyes & pink lips.

Spotted on Mackenzie's Pinterest.

I want to try that hot pink lip look! Gorgeous!



Tuesday Ruminations.

Haven't posted these in a while. . .

I feel badly if I am excluded from an activity even if I have no intention of going and don't like those who are.

I still don't get why it's "$10" instead of "10$".

I don't write on your facebook wall so you can comment on it. I write on your wall so you will write back on mine and make me seem more popular. Work with me here.

It annoys me when people don't remove the plastic screen protector off their new phone, especially when the corners are starting to come off and have tiny hairs stuck to them.

Whenever I'm first to arrive at a restaurant amongst my group, I always try to make it blantantly obvious that I do, in fact, have friends.

Facebook is a lot like a fridge. When you're bored you keep opening and closing it every couple of minutes to see if there's anything good, but nothing ever changes.

Another Zara post.

I have a meeting downtown next week that just so happens to be across the street from Zara.

I might have to pop in there to pick up a few items I've been eyeing. . .

Can you tell I am a bit obsessed with this store right now??

CP is convinced my sisters and I were as talented rollerblading in our backyard as this guy is on the streets.

Might have to lace up the rollerblades and find out for myself. I think I can conquer these moves in a few hours.



Darty Dresses

I've been on the hunt for the perfect (although at this point I will accept less than perfect) dress for my sister's graduation. Anyone that knows ML knows that there will be a LOT of pictures taken of S in her cap and gown (or whatever lovely frock she is wearing under it). And with pictures of S, come pictures of C and L. I am trying to prepare myself. I am also trying to remind myself that my graduation was 900 degrees and in a gym. So I need to prepare for the worst.

That being said, I figured I would check out Saks (!) for some dresses since the have F&F coming up! So, I go to the dresses section and filter to view "Day Dresses." Only to realize that there must be some crazy events going on during the day while I am sitting at my desk Monday-Friday and day drinking in dive bars Saturday and Sunday. Seriously. What are the people working and shopping at Saks getting dressed up for?! Not only do I not think ANY of these dresses should be worn during the day, some of them might not even be street legal.

My thoughts?

If it's shiny (and not because the sun is out), then take it off.

If you could be mistaken for a call girl, throw it out.

And if it looks like something you might wear with a matching thong on your honeymoon, then do just that and ONLY that.

And even if it's Lilly P, the rules still apply. Sequins should be worn at night.

And if you are going to wear a black beaded dress during the day, please let it be at a funeral and only a funeral.

What happened to sun dresses?!



Blast from the past

Remember Kipling bags? You know, the ones that came with a monkey (who could suck his thumb. . .) keychain?

Well, lo and behold. Kipling bags are on Gilt today! And for $12, you can even buy JUST the monkey!

C, didn't you say you needed a replacement Kipling monkey?




You all know my love for Saks (even though I make most of my purchases at Bloomie's). And for those of you that know my love for Friends and Family (the literal type and the coupon type), then you know that this is a deadly combination.

Lilly Pouf

L spotted this in this month's Real Simple and I really think I need it.

What a great way to store my shoes (slash hide all my purchases?)! Seriously cannot wait until Lilly's furniture line comes out this summer!

Are you ready??

No More Friends.

I popped into Paper Source the other day and stumbled upon this hilarious book: All My Friends Are Dead.

Take a sec to flip through it (it's a picture book if you can't tell. . .)!

The tragedy of first position

LB had this as her gchat status today and I just had to share. . .really cute.



Water for Elephants

I'm a little over half way through with the book and I cannot wait until the movie comes out!

And how amazing did Reese look in Vogue?

Not so bad yourself, Rob.




So Jennifer Lopez was just named People's Most Beautiful Woman. She looks gorg!

In honor of that, let's take a look back at Jenny from the Block through the years.

Who could forget this?



RIP. (And umm nice eyelashes?)

Young love.


Jenny from the Block.

Oh my.

Not sure C or I could pull this off.

Getting better. . .

Orange all ova.


Now, that's a better look.
