Katy Perry Concert


In a few short hours, Kyla, Lauren, Kristen, and I will be dancing our booties off at the Katy Perry concert! Mom and I went to her California Dreams tour in Dallas in July of 2011 and she was an incredible live performer – we loved the show. I am so excited to see her in concert again!

An aside – if you haven’t checked out Part of Me, the documentary about Katy Perry (which was filmed during the aforementioned California Girls tour that Mom and I attended), you absolutely must. It is so interesting and entertaining, and it reveals a lot about Katy’s true heart, which is so pure. She is a genuine and talented artist who loves her career but puts her people first. After I made James watch it with me, who is more of a rock fan than a Top 40 kind of guy, even he admitted that it was great. So if you can’t see Katy in concert, check her out on Netflix!

Week & End


Dang, y’all, it’s Friday already? No complaints here, of course, but I apologize for my lack of posts the past couple of days! The short workweek threw me off a bit and time just seemed to fly by.

What are you up to this weekend? I’m hosting a small group retreat at our house tonight and I’m so excited for quality time with some of my favorite ladies. We’re going to make our own pizzas (experimenting with combinations like fig, prosciutto & arugula), drink wine, and have a slumber party – so fun! The rest of the weekend will be fairly low-key, which is just lovely.

Have a fabulous Friday & enjoy some fun links from around the web!

James & I are so beyond excited that the second season of Derek is now available on Netflix! We plan to hunker down with a bottle of wine and blow through all of the new episodes in one sitting (yep, we love the show that much).

After the aforementioned shared bottle of wine, James & I are starting our quarterly 10-day AdvoCare cleanse. I used to dread having to give up dairy, alcohol, sugar, and caffeine (amongst other treats, like pizza and chips with queso) for an extended period of time but now that I’ve got a few cleanses under my belt, I’m actually looking forward to it – I feel so energized afterwards.

Speaking of the cleanse, this looks like a delicious (and healthy!) smoothie that I need to make in the very near future.

I love all of Sugar & Cloth’s IKEA hacks – I definitely want to recreate her headboard and nightstands. Add this pretty bar cart to the list, too.

I have enjoyed The Atelier’s stationery for awhile now but I’ve never taken the plunge and ordered any paper products. These striped shirt notecards as well as these palm leaf cards have pushed me over the edge – I must have both!
