Featured Friend: Amanda Michelle

I have had these pictures for well over a month, and I am FINALLY putting the up. This is my other friend Amanda, posing for me before we went dress shopping for her wedding. I love Amanda's style because she is always simple, girly, and put together! I am hanging out with her for the first time since these pictures were taken today! I am excited to see her and catch up! I am meeting with her in an hour, so I better hurry up and get ready!

"SHOO, Jimmy Choo!"

I have been contemplating buying this book for a while now. I am not in MAJOR debt, but I do have a little that I would like to clear up. I want to learn how to start saving for my future. The other day, I was at the mall so I decided to pick this book up and fell in love! It gives you great budgeting advice and tells you what to do if you are in massive credit card debt. It tells you how to save and how to deal with student loans. There are charts in there to set goals and figure out your budget. If you can't afford the book ($14) then I also suggest just taking a peek at the site, here. I also just love the way it is written; it is very witty and easy to understand.

I am starting my budget as of TODAY, so I am getting ready to go MAKE some coffee, rather than buy it from Dunkin Donuts, call my credit card companies, and sadly get rid of my wonderful data package will my cell phone. Goodbye APPS! I think it'll feel good to take a break from technology, anyhow.

Robert's got a quick hand.

foster the people - pumped up kicks

I don't know why but I am OBSESSED with this song. It just reminds me of summer. I love cruising with the windows down and blasting this song. I can't believe it is almost the end of July!! To all in this heat wave, stay cool!

Drama summer.

This year, I had to do a stay-cation. There was simply  no money saved and I do not have enough money currently to just go somewhere. Poor planning on both my and "JC"s part. I guess a stay-cation is better than no vacation, and we are NOW saving for next summer. Here are some things I wish were near me/I had to make this stay-cation more tolerable:

A big, cozy outside couch to sit on while I read.  I wouldn't mind the fruity drink and fruit, either.

 A swimming pool to float around and get my tan on.

To live in driving distance..

... or even biking distance...

... of this.

so that I can do this...

or this...

with my running partner (no this isn't my pup, mine is WAAYY cuter).

maybe relax on one of these..

 ..or on the beach with my girls.

&& when all of that's over..

kiss in the rain.

le sigh.

If you meet me have some courtesy, have some sympathy, & some taste.

Last night, I went to a Rolling Stones cover band show in Penny Pack Park. This was the 3rd year that I have seen this band, The Glimmer Twins, and they were awesome as usual. The guys that are suppose to be Mick and Keith really kind of look like them and the guy that is suppose to be Mick dances around like him and stuff. Needless to say it was a good time and I can't wait for it again next year.

Have you seen the little piggies..?

This bench is probably the coolest bench I have ever seen. It is outside of Stephanie and Holly's apartment and when I saw it, I knew I had to take a picture with it! The one end is a bear and the other end is a pig! SO CUTE! I love these shorts because of the pretty ruffle detail at the top. I also have my "rape whistle" necklace on. Yes, it is a legit whistle and you never know, it might come in handy one day.

all the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run.

A few posts back, I featured my friend, Amanda. The same night, another friend of mine, Maureen, took some shots for me. We went out for a few drinks and the bar is near different shipping warehouses, so I decided it would be a pretty cool place to get some pictures. I love love LOVE my olive green jacket, I bring it with me every time I go out, just incase it gets chilly. Hope everyone has recovered well from the holiday weekend!

Light a roman candle with me.

Happy 4th of July! This is what I wore to work today (yes, I had work on the 4th of July, UGH!). I am probably going to swap out the pencil skirt for a pair of shorts or jeans, depending on how cool it gets for  Stacy and Walt's BBQ tonight! Sangria, food, & friends; I'd say that's a good way to celebrate independence! Hope everyone is having a fun and SAFE holiday!
