Cheers to Friday!
So glad that this week has come to an end! I am a bit exhausted for some reason!
Kip’s parents are coming in for the weekend so we should have a great but busy weekend showing them around Atlanta and heading out for dinners.
It was a very productive week, capped off by dinner and drinks last night at one of our favorite casual spots down the street!
Kip got me to try this drink called a Paloma and it was delicious!
It’s like a grapefruit tequila soda with lime, and they serve it back in the soda bottle with a side of ice.
I managed to make it to a workout class every day this week, and even managed to wake up early to knock out two morning workouts which hasn’t happened in awhile. It was so nice to not have to think about it after work!
My motivational podcasts actually paid off this week! I found “The Good Life Project” and picked a few episodes of that and also two episodes of “The Sean Croxton Sessions”. Juicy Scoop had 2 podcasts interviewing Kelly Osborne and I refuse to listen to anything with her.
and I totally woke up early happily! Just like a ray of sunshine! Just SO excited about an early start to the day!
I mean if you were to show this gif to my husband he would say this perfectly summarizes my feelings and attitudes and verbal communication skills on any given morning.
So to say I am proud of myself for waking up early TWO times is an understatement.
Wednesday I went to the dermatologist for my first Full Body Check. I was terrified but it actually went much better than I had expected. She only took a sample of one mole on my shoulder, and I had been anticipating several spots being a problem.
I know all it takes is one spot, but for now I’m just happy I went and I’m worry free until I get the results back next week!
The anticipation was definitely more nerve racking than the actual appointment + removal.

A sweet reader send me a Thomas Ravanel update on him and a new young lady in his life.
I clicked to the homepage of the website afterwards since I wasn’t familiar with it, and lo and behold there is an article about Eliza Morehouse’s father and his Baby Mama Drama.
So It looks like Thomas and his old buddy have lots in common with the Baby Mama’s!
So apparently the interview happened in 2015, but KLG mentioned on the Today show this week that she uses a product Whitney Cummings had recommended called NuFace.
Have any of you heard anything about this? Because Whitney Cummings may have a filthy mouth, but my goodness does she have some KILLER SKIN.
Tory Burch just came out with a similar print in the Miller Sandal in case you can’t find them!

Bachelorette starts Monday! Get familiar with a breakdown of all of the contestants.
also, she is apparently engaged!
I was going to blog about how this was TOTALLY going to be a break up today, and it’s official now!
Because Becca went from posting pictures constantly with her boyfriend to ZERO. She is so pretty I can’t help but insta-stalk her.
A garden I would actually remember to water: How to make your own cocktail garden.
It’s Pippa Middleton’s Wedding Weekend! Can’t wait to see pictures.
Tricks for air drying your hair (which usually results in half straight half kinky/curly mayhem for me).
Tinsley Mortimer’s Pimento Cheese Recipe. I. love. Pimento. Cheese.
The fact that Male Rompers is an article on CNN is very sad. And if my husband ever puts one of these on we need to sit down and have a chat.
4 Foods a Gut Doctor would never eat. (never gonna happen, although I don’t like Coffee so that helps!)

This suit started my obsession with this print. I just am so in love with it on ANY thing. Can someone lend me some money please so I can buy all of the dresses?
Shoulder Tie Dress // Garden Party Dress // Cape Dress // Shirt Dress
I’ve debated getting this dress for the Italy Wedding. I love the contrasting piping to the floral print so much.
I don’t know what it is, the fresh white or the detailing, or just how unique it is, but I love this crossbody for summer.
Yellow + a tie front are two of my favorite things right now for dresses!
peach + tassels // bright pattern + pom details // double V in a beautiful blue + white
The biggest trend in earrings, but in a bracelet! And under $50! I don’t know if I love the blue or the white more!
and this tote, in four color options with a cute as heck tassel, is stiff competition.
or anyone that wants a fancy white wedge!
This white strapless dress is gorgeous and would also be perfect for a pre-wedding festivity!
Hope you all have a great weekend!!!!
