Thoughts for Friday

- I LOVED the Hunger Games!! I thought they did a great job turning the book into a movie; it can be so hard to capture it all but I think they did it very well. It was a little long but I’m dying to see it again.

- I have done a horrible job following March Madness this year. Sometimes I’m really good but I had so many upsets in my bracket early on that I just lost all focus.

- I’m itching to buy spring/summer clothes since they are all over the stores but I’m so pale right now I think everything looks gross on me. Time for some self tanner!

- Speaking of self tanner, do yourself a favor and buy St. Tropez bronzing mousse- it is amazing! It gives you a great color and does not look orange. It is a little pricey but a bottle will last a long time and it is hands down the best. Make sure you buy the applicator mitt it makes it go on more even than using your hand.

- I need a grammar lesson. I’m thinking of trying to find a non-credit grammar refresher course at the community college near me. With all the shorthand on text, gchat, etc I feel like I’ve lost a lot of my knowledge. English and writing were never my strong points in school. If anyone of you english buffs have any advice for me I'll take it!

- Have you all heard about Fifty Shades of Grey? OMG.  We decided to read them for book club and I just finished reading all 3 of the books. If you're not aware of the book then click here.  I've read a few romance novels but none of them have come close to this book as far as sex scenes are concerned.  Wow.  The writing isn't stellar but I could not put the books down.
 
Well that's all I've got for Friday!  TGIF!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and hopefully I'll have fun pics to share from MBA prom.

A little shoe help please!

So this Saturday is K's MBA Prom (yes they call it prom) so I get to wear a fun cocktail dress and heels!

I have the dress picked out but I can't decide on the shoes. I have 2 very different options and I need help deciding which look better.
 

Here is an up close of the dress:

Option #1 -
I scored these at Marshalls for $79.99!



Ignore the white thing on the shoe I forgot to take the tissue paper off the zipper 

Option #2



The nude heels are a little bit more conservative while the black ones are more fun and sexy. I honestly like both of them and can't decide which would be better so please give me your opinion!

TGIF

This is what I will be doing tonight...



Are you going to see it? I can't wait!! I've heard lots of good reviews about the movie which is always promising since the Twilight movies get awful reviews but I still love them :)

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Have a great weekend!

Monday Eye Candy: White Kitchens

Happy Monday! How was everyone's weekend? Mine involved a lot of painting and painting.

Since my house is still a construction zone from all the cabinet painting all I can do to maintain my sanity is to dream of how beautiful and worth it this will all be when it's complete!

So in the mean time lets look in at some pretty finished white kitchens...

Friday Round Up via Instagram

Sorry I've been MIA all week I have an awful cold that I'm still fighting but praying will be better by tonight so I can celebrate a good friend's birthday.

Due to my foggy cold medicine induced state here is my week via Instagram.

 Just a little arm party
I broke down and started The Hunger Games- so far I'm really liking  it
Kale chips- perfect salty snack
Soy vanilla latte - sticking to dairy free
A green machine smoothie and jello for my sore throat

TGIF! I hope you all had a great week and have fun plans scheduled for the weekend :)
