Friday's Fancies - Albuquerque Wedding

Hello lovelies!  I'm off this weekend to Albuquerque, NM to see one of my college roommates get married!  I'm so excited to see some of my best friends/roommates from college - we all moved off to different states after graduation (NM, OK, and KS... but of course, I stayed in Texas.)

The girl getting married has always been super fancy, so it was no surprise that she picked to have her wedding here:

And the reception here:


Anyway - after paying for a plane ticket and a night at the hotel/resort/casino, I have no money to spend on buying something new to wear. Sooo, I will just imagine I would be wearing this:

Be sure to link up with {av} at long distance loving for friday's fancies and share what you wish you could be wearing!

Possum Kingdom (possums not actually involved)

This is a bit delayed, but I thought I would still share.  Weekend before last, the boyfriend and I flew up to Dallas to spend the weekend with his family at their lakehouse.  We were SO excited for a mini-vacation and for a tiny break from school.  

(Mark is in medical school too, so neither of us have lives.  Although, he has it worse than me right now because he's studying for the first part of our licensing boards which is probably the hardest test known to man.  Literally, two years of medical school on one eight hour exam.  And yes, they will ask you what that one sentence was from paragraph 4 of page 453 from that one book that you read the 2nd week you started school.  Poor thing studies nearly 15 hours a day, but it helps that I had to do it last year...  so, when he's a little crazy, I forgive him.  I can't even imagine how he put up with me while I studied for it last year, bless his little heart.)  

Anyway, our weekend consisted of lots of delicious food, a day out on the lake tubing/skiing/getting burnt to a crisp, canoeing/kayaking, tennis, beer, and a round of golf.  By round of golf, I mean Mark and his roommate/my boy bff played golf while I sat on the golf cart and took pictures of them and tried to not do anything to get yelled at.  

Here's a few pictures from our trip.  There aren't any of me water skiing because I am far too uncoordinated to do that without killing myself.  I did, however, get on the tube but bf failed at taking photos.  

Yes, this is my golf outfit.
I was warned to not make noise while shooting.
Loveeee him - he told me this pose was stupid.

Our weekend seems very relaxing, right??


There was a killer on the loose.

Yes, that is the biggest spider I've seen in my life and it was merely inches from my face.  


Anyway, it's still alive out there somewhere because everyone was too scared to try to kill it.  If you're in the north Texas area, be careful.   You've been warned.

Friday's Fancies

Since I'm getting slightly better at this whole blogging thing, I decided to join in with {av} at long distance loving for her Friday's Fancies link-up!

[ 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 ]

I fell in love with the color of this dress first, then picked out everything else to go with it.  I don't actually have anywhere fancy enough to wear this to at the moment, but a girl can dream!  

*Sidenote:  What the heck is going on with blogger? I finally get addicted to this thing and they take it away from me for 20.5 hours?  (No, I didn't time it - they announced that on their blog post.)  I hope my posts come back soon!  And I also had new comments from people that don't even know me! I feel like a celebrity!*

What's on your fancy wish list?

Lazy blogger/weekend

Hello!  I apologize for the lack of blogging, but I was too busy spending the weekend doing this:

I promise to write an update of my weekend SOON and continue on my 30 day challenge!  

How were your weekends?

Day 6 + Drink-o de Mayo

Day 6 - A picture of something that makes you happy

Beer + Margaritas = 

hey, girl, heyyyy

No, silly... turn your attention to the delicious creation sitting right in front of her. If Snooki is drinking it, then you know it's a good time.  There's actually two things in this picture that make me happy, so when I thought of something that combined them both, naturally, I was excited.

Beer Margaritas (Yes, together.)

Tequila (8 oz. (or 30 oz. -  it's whatevs))
Limeade Concentrate (12 oz.)
Beer (preferably, light and/or Mexican - (4) 12 oz. bottles)
Salt (for rimming... that's what she said.)
Shot Glass

1) In a large pitcher, combine tequila, thawed limeade concentrate and beer.  Add more of any ingredient if desired.  *Tip - I've also added Sprite in before, but it's just a personal preference.
2) Fill shot glass with tequila and drink.  Repeat as needed.
3) Use lime and salt to rim margarita glasses (or just drink right out of the pitcher) and enjoy!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

What are you doing to celebrate?
