Hello Kitty is my Hero!

Over the weekend, I was pleasantly surprised to meet my longtime hero. I know, I realize I’m not a five year old (anymore), but I’m still a little kid at heart. I’ve always loved Hello Kitty (My friends actually nicknamed me Hello Kitty because of the fact that I have these crazy 8-bit Hello Kitty PJ pants and forced my roommates to use a Hello Kitty toaster in our apartment) and I don’t think I’ll ever stop my obsession with this cute kitty.

Sadly, I always imagined her to be taller. hahaha!!

Aside from meeting a life-sized Hello Kitty in the Sanrio store, my weekend was pretty low key. Sorted photos and started to clean out my closet. It seems like I only ever blog outfits when I’m wearing the same shoes or jacket or jeans. Sigh. I promise my summer wardrobe is a little more exciting than I make it out to be.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Pretty in Pink (and Bows)

I recently did a swap with the lovely Erica of Sweets and Hearts. We both love bows and pink and girly things, so we though it would be a good idea to surprise each other with some mail. (Plus, she has a wicked sense of style and I couldn’t help but fall in love with all her handmade bows, dresses and kitty ears!)

First, let me just preface this by saying that I had a bit of a rough week and this package came in on Friday afternoon. I don’t think I have ever been so giddy about a package before. hah! I opened it and squealed. No joke. The pink tissue paper? The heart? Ahh too much cute!

more goodies?!

It felt like it was Christmas in June! Cute headband aaaaaaaand pearl earrings? *grins*

a happy lady!I’m a happy gal.

Happy Friday!!

It’s been quite the whirlwind of a week over here. The week started off amazing, and then I ended up hitting my quarterly allergy run-in on Wednesday (not-so-yay for spending an hour in a public bathroom puking up a cookie), and things are good again. Hopefully the weekend makes up for the crummy things that happened during the week.

I’m hoping to spend my weekend reading and attempting to dine at establishments classier than McDonald’s. haha

What are your plans?

Taphouse and Targets

When I first started blogging, I didn’t intend on every other entry to be about food. It seems like I check out a new restaurant almost twice a week, which doesn’t seem like much, but it’s definitely starting to take a toll on my wallet… and my waistline. haha!

sweet selection on tap

On our latest trip, my friends and I checked out a popular Taphouse on the east side. Look at that selection of beers on tap! Sadly, I couldn’t enjoy a cold beverage from the tap with my lunch because of the activity planned for later in the afternoon. Drinks aside, the food was delicious!

I decided on garlic chicken penne smothered in cheese, paired with a tortilla soup. I can’t say that this was the best penne I’ve ever had (the cheese was a little too strong for my liking), but the tortilla soup was soooo good. It was a clear broth with¬†avocado, sour cream, and a handful of tortilla chips. I don’t think I’ve ever had anything quite like it.

So the reason I couldn’t enjoy a drink with my lunch is because we ended up at a shooting range. ¬†I can’t say I was super excited to shoot pistols, but because we don’t have anything like this in Canada, I was intrigued.

shooting

We started off with a 22mm pistol and shot a few rounds. After we got bored of that, we moved on to a 9mm baretta. I had no idea that the recoil from one size to the next could be so drastic! I knew that it would feel different, but not that different. Still a fun experience, nonetheless.

I’m not sure if you can tell in the photos, but I’m wearing a dress. Yes, I wore a dress to a shooting range. Sigh. haha It was almost as ridiculous as the time I wore flats, a dress shirt and jogging pants to a mini-hike. I need to plan my outfits a little better… : P

Crazy about Lace

This past weekend was filled with sunny skies (a rare sight for us west coasters). You have no idea how excited I was for the sun to be out because warm weather = DRESS WEATHER! Recently, I’ve been on a bit of a floral kick. Every shirt or dress I gravitate towards either has floral print on it or is made of floral lace. What is up with that?

lounging in a dress

I ended up spending the most of my day running errands and got the chance to unwind at a ‘girls afternoon/night in’ event. A bunch of us met up for some wine & cheese and pedicures. Nothing like enjoying a relaxing night with a bunch of girls and delicious drinks. Did I mention we also played a lot of Rock Band?

painted feet!

(If you’re curious, I got my nails painted in this obnoxious coral pink color. I usually don’t paint my toes but I couldn’t pass up a free pedicure. I figured I needed to get in the spirit of summer shoes and went for the boldest color available!)

p.s. I wasn’t lying when I said that i like monochromatic outfits!
