Weekending + A GIVEAWAY!!!

So yeah, I kind of took an unplanned little break from blogging the last part of the last week. Adam was out of town from Wednesday to Saturday and it just got really busy the last part of the week so blogging took a back seat. But I'm back today to recap the weekend fun! This weekend went way too fast but I'm comforting myself with the thought that we get next Monday off, woo hoo!

*After reading my ramblings make sure you enter to win some adorable Chloe and Isabel earrings below!*

Thursday after work since Adam was out of town I figured I was entitled to a little shopping (Girl logic) and I wanted a fun new dress and sandals for a graduation party I was going to on Saurday, so I went to Forever 21 and found the prettiest dress and sandals for such a great price!

The picture doesn't show it, but these sandals are actually a gorgeous rose gold color, LOVE. I wish I could find the dress and sandals on the website to link them but they are nowhere to be found! 

Then I came home and watched The Good Wife and enjoyed popcorn and blueberry soda, which is my new favorite thing.

On Friday night I went with a friend and her family to dinner and a movie to celebrate her sister's birthday. We had 4 Rivers BBQ for dinner and then saw Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was really good even though I haven't see the other Avenger movies and I felt a little lost at times.

I was super impressed with the theater, they recently remodeled and had these really nice, cushy seats that reclined! My BFF and I were joking about falling asleep, they were so comfy! Plus the movie started at 10:15, this old lady can't remember the last time she saw a movie in the theater that late!

I didn't get home till 1:30 and didn't get to bed till 2:30ish, and then had to get up at 6:30 the next morning so I was dragging for a while on Saturday!

Saturday morning I cleaned the house and made Chicken Chili for the graduation party. Unfortunately I don't have any pics for the grad party to share, the hostess took some though and hopefully I can steal them off of Facebook soon!

Adam got back into town Saturday afternoon and we had dinner with friends that night, it was so good to have him home!

Sunday we slept in and went to a realllllly late lunch, in which I had breakfast food because why not?

So all in all a pretty fun weekend!


And now for a GIVEAWAY! Check out the deets below!

1. Can you tell us a little about Chloe + Isabel?
The Chloe + Isabel Brand was inspired by a concept we call "The Friendship Philosophy" - the idea of two best friends with different personalities and styles, united by their passion for style and self-expression. Chloe and Isabel are names that represent the two personalities we see in our customers, our Merchandisers, and ourselves.
“Chloe” is a fearless fashionista, always in search of the season’s hottest trends, while “Isabel” appreciates, above all, timeless, beautifully-crafted pieces. Whether you're a Chloe, an Isabel, or a Chloe-bel (that's a bit of both!), we are a destination for all women!

2. What made you decide to start working with Chloe + Isabel? 
I decided to start working with Chloe + Isabel because I'm not completely fulfilled in my current position and I was looking for another way to generate income and see where building a business would take me. I hosted an online party with my friend who is a merchandizer for Chloe + Isabel. My party did very well and I got free jewelry. I love fashion & jewelry so it just made sense.

3. What are your favorite pieces?
The c+i jewelry is awesome. Some of the really nice features are that all pieces are hypoallergenic, nickel-free, and lead safe. We offer a lifetime replacement and 30-day money back guarantee on every piece. From timeless to fashion-driven, our pieces start at just $18. They have a really unique concept called convertibles, where the pieces are multifunctional.

Some of my favorite pieces are Bouquet Rouge Double Pendant Necklace, Gilded Reeds Aventurine Long Pendant, Heirloom Tortoise Link Necklace, Color Code Crystal Bracelet, Starburst + Seed Pearl Long Pendant

4. What advice do you have to give to someone who is considering getting started in a venture like C + I? 
Feel free to reach out to me! I would love to answer any questions you may have. I would definitely recommend this company and opportunity to anyone who is looking for a little more financial freedom and would also love a few new piece of lifetime guaranteed jewelry.

If you just want to purchase some beautiful jewelry, visit my boutique!


Today along with some of my favorite bloggy friends are giving away a pair of the gorgeous teeny tortoise stud earrings! These are the CUTEST studs (I might have to order a pair for myself)!

  1. Great weekend! I looooove those dress and shoes! I kind of like when Nick goes away. Give me time to watch all my "girl" shows! Thanks for linking up today!

  2. Sounds like a relaxing but fun filled weekend! I'm loving your F21 finds - that dress looks great on you! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. What a cute dress and sandals! I would totally fall asleep reclined at a movie theater...I can't tell you the amount of movies I have fallen asleep in. If I had a long day, or a headache...once those lights go down, I am done for! haha

  4. Blueberry soda? Sounds interesting.

    Our movie theater is new and has crazy comfy seats and I can assure you that if I went to a late movie, my old lady ass would be asleep 5 minutes into the movie.

  5. Sounds like a super fun weekend!!! Those sandals look super cute. All the food is making me hungry. Is it too early to be thinking of lunch at 930AM? What is this blueberry soda that you speak of??? Love the Good Wife! Hope you have a great week!

  6. Love your new outfit- super cute girl! :) And aren't those pop-up popcorn bowls awesome?! We always get those too! Also, I really need to get to a nicer movie theatre that has recliners in it- lol, but a 10pm+ movie would definitely mean naptime for me! We are old farts who go to Saturday matinees hehe!

  7. Now I wouldn't mind going to the movies so much if I could sit in chairs like that! My biggest gripe (besides the ever-rising prices) is how uncomfortable I get :-P

    Have a fabulous week!

  8. Umm I really want to go to see a movie where the seats recline...pretty sure we don't have any of those here!! Looks like a great weekend. Oh and great find at forever 21!! cute!

  9. Those movie theater seats!! I need those everywhere!!! And yes to all the food!! Bacon and biscuits....yuuuuuum. Glad you had a good weekend!

  10. Love your shopping finds and yes we're entitled to shopping if the husband is gone. I love 4Rivers and so glad there's one right by my office. It's always packed tho.

  11. how cute is that dress and those sandals?! love. what a great find!
