Pearls and Curls

You've guessed's that time again! Linking up with Sara for the weekly instagram re-cap.

Yummy ice cream on my lunch break the other day from Blue Chip.
Lt Dan....ICE CREAM!
If there isn't already a place called that I might open up my own shop someday....original I know. But I love that movie and have a habit of saying the words above lately. 

Pictures for my desk at work! New Lilly Pulitzer frames! Found at home goods. 

Made a gluten free apple pit with my mommy. 

My monogrammed Tervis Tumbler arrived!! 
Accidentally got the smaller size, but I love it. 

Shay dog's ears were too cute not to take a picture of.

My Lilly Pulitzer and Jonathan Adler haul from Home Goods. 

What did you do this week? It was a busy one for me.

One Year

Sunday August 18th, 2013 marked the one year anniversary for Andrew and I. My oh my how time sure does fly.
To celebrate we went to dinner at Cheesecake Factory. He got me some red roses. I made him a picture frame with 8-18-12 painted on it and baked him some chocolate chip cookies from scratch.

Recapping my outfits of the day for work to start off with.
Guess I'll go in reverse order with them because that's they way they uploaded....
and I only worked four days this week b/c of my trip.

Friday! Excuse the headless action. Instagram made me crop it.



Here is how the rest of my instagram looked this week.

The LAMP came in the mail. Love reading about all of the amazing things my DZ sisters are doing. :)

Thought back on and posted pics from the MN trip. Make sure to check out my post on the trip.

My grandma's birthday was Tuesday!

To the Lake!

My family's version of a lake trip is to head 11 hours North on I-35 to Lake Superior, specifically between Duluth, MN and Two Harbors, MN.
To a place called Dodge's Log Lodges aka a little slice of Heaven on Earth. :)

While in Minnesota we stayed one night in Chaska. It's a short drive away from the twin cities and THE MALL OF AMERICA! My 2nd/3rd cousins live there. Sadly this time we only got to have dinner with one of my cousins, but it was good to see her! I hadn't seen her for five years!!

If you're ever up that way you MUST eat at Cuzzy's, the food is SO yummy and fairly priced as well.
Oh and IF you do not stop at the local ice cream joint called It's Just Perfect! you will greatly regret it. Best ice cream around.

Day two of the "lake trip" started off with what else....THE MALL OF AMERICA y'all. EEEEKKKKK.
Went into a decent amount of shops and came out with not too much, but managed to spend $70. Three camis for 6 bucks each isn't too shabby. I got a cardi and light weight pj pants for $27. Last but not least a E monogram tervis tumblr, with a pink lid and 6 pack of straws for $25. We ate lunch at BWW.

After the mall we jumped in the Ford Edge we had rented for the trip to make the three hour drive to Duluth/the cabin. The cabin is closer to Two Harbors though.

While in the Duluth/Two Harbors area we ate at the Lighthouse at Emily's for dinner...SO yummy and seriously the best cheesecake around!!!

There were bonfires held on the beach, smores made. Lots of pictures taken. Time was spent reading, relaxing, throwing rocks in the water, sleeping in, seeing family, trying new places and more.

We went to Gooseberry Falls, visited my grandpa's grave, saw a boat sitting in the harbor, stopped by the Lift Bridge in Duluth, and visited the train museum.

We FINALLY got to see family on Sunday before we left for home on Monday. We spent about 4 hours with them. Got to eat some great food, chatted, and shot a b.b. gun! Turns out I'm pretty good at shooting that thing.

That weekend was my great aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary! So it was great to be around to congratulate them on that, even though we didn't "go to dinner together" we actually ended up unknowingly eating dinner at the same restaurant that night but at different times! Thought that was too funny.

Overall it was a great trip! I highly recommend visiting Chaska, the MALL OF AMERICA, and Duluth/Two Harbors. All are great with friendly people, and super pretty!

I shall now leave you with some pictures from my trip. Have you ever been to MN?

All photos are mine.

Work Outfits

This past week was only a three day work week for me as I got to go on vacation with my family.
Re-capping my outfits for the week!



Luckily I haven't run out of ideas yet for cute outfits and still have some new pieces to wear. 

Stay tuned for my re-cap of my MN vacation!
