summer ready
Glitter Guide offered this great list of beauty updates just in time for summer. I want the Urban Decay beauty balm!

I'm always looking for new ways to spice up a salad, so this Sriracha Lime Chicken Salad looks delicious. Definitely adding it to the menu soon. 

flamenco flamingo
I've always had a thing for flamingos, but it's in rare form this season. Every time I see something with a flamingo on it, I think I "need" it. Love this pop nouveau print. 

I came across this fab look on pinterest and couldn't get enough; the dress, the cuffs, the tan -- everything about this is perfection.

Many of you know that my grandmother's battle with ALS has significantly worsened in the last weeks. We had hit what seemed like a plateau when suddenly things really turned, and she has been bedridden for the last two weeks. She really is one of my best friends, so this has been incredibly hard for me, especially since I work a little over an hour from where she lives. I've had a very hard time with this, but woke up on Wednesday with a positive attitude, a new dress, and some pink lipstick to make for a better day. On the way to work, I realized I was in the wrong lane and sped up to get into the correct one, and immediately got pulled over -- and received a speeding ticket. In a time when I needed a pick-me-up, I was knocked right back down, and it hurt. It really hurt. But I have great family and friends who lifted me back up, and I really needed this reminder that God is faithful.

This weekend, I'm going to our friends' wedding, seeing my sister in the musical Cats, and spending time with my sweet grandmother. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Cheers!
