Wild One

Animal print is perfect for Summer, perfect for Fall and perfect for the period between Summer and Fall.


Speaking of wild, this weekend qualified as evidenced below.

I’m so proud to call Erika, Irene and Tamra my approved real life friends!

A Weekend With DesignStILes

This weekend, I did some heavy drinking with this family.

And fell 100 percent in love with this face, swollen eye and all.

And nursed a hangover with mojitos.

Seriously you guys, Irene and TH are crazy in the best way possible. They drink, they swear and they have dogs. Everything I want in friends. As expected The Husband and TH hit it off and may have done more talking than us ladies. See, you can make friends on the Internet.

And some iPhone pictures…

We cheated on our dogs with each other’s dogs.

So Irene, when can we hang out next?!

Black Beans and Quinoa

Remember when I used to cook? I don’t either. I’ve been too busy going to happy hour and lusting after Wangs. Luckily, my angel Irene gave me the shove I needed to put together some ingredients and take pictures. She’s in South America so I attempted South American fare. Visit me at designstILes today to get the goods on this dish.

Best Blind Date Ever

On Saturday, I had a blind date with two of my favorite bloggers Erika of Small Shop and Irene of DesignStiles.  We drank lots of wine, gorged on comfort food and then went drunk shopping, which is the best kind of shopping!

This is us at the beginning of our date. We were very civilized at this point.

And then wine happened.

And sweet potato fries and fancy roasted mushroom and truffle oil flatbread happened.

And pretty soon we let loose, although still fairly civilized.

FOUR whole hours and more wine later we walked to a little boutique not far from the restaurant and took loads of pictures. We even asked the salesgirl to snap shots of the three of us, which I ordinarily would never have the balls to do. But Irene offered to swiffer the floor so it was all good!

Seriously though, it’s incredible how the Internet can bring people together. I feel like I’ve known these girls forever and there wasn’t a single awkward moment. We laughed really loud and everyone in our vicinity probably wanted to punch us. Those are the best kind of dates. I heart you girls!
