Wardrobe Wendesday!

With the Holidays approaching I am beginning to see Red everywhere from Holiday Decor, to clothing.

Unfortunately Red does not look very good on me on top so I decided to accessorize with it and wear it on bottom this season.

I picked up these hot red pants to wear to dressier events.

While in Columbia I picked up this bauble necklace to add some some holiday flair to any outfit.

And of course everyone needs a red lip in the winter to brighten things up a little.

This is my new favorite red lipstick from MAC.

It does not look like Tacky or Cheap Red at all.

 I chose to sport my new red lips on Halloween.

Gamecock's for a Weekend!

Last weekend the ladies in my family and I spent the weekend with my cousin Kelsey in Columbia.

I have not spent much time there in years, in fact when I was there when I was younger it was mainly to attend the Football Games so I had really not spent much time out and about in Columbia.

Friday evening when we arrived we went out for an Asian Fusion Dinner at Tsunami.

Saturday we were up and at em' taking in the sights, really the malls of Columbia.

We had a delicious lunch at The Gourmet Shop in Five Points

Then we hit up some Boutiques in The Five Points Area and popped in a local pub to catch the
USC game!

We were in Gamecock country ya know!

Cheers! Till the Gamecocks LOST!

Sunday we had a yummy Brunch at Ruth's Chris before departing

Weekend at Home!

This was the first weekend Keith and I were home together in.................a LONG time. So long I really cannot remember, I would have to whip out the calendar and see.
Friday night we went to Cross Fit, lame huh? But I was out of commission the entire week with my back so I really needed to be there.
Saturday we spent time together lounging in the morning before heading out to the Packed Halloween Shops to get Keith a costume.
I got so much checked off my list between removing Summer items from the closets, a little landscaping around our Townhouse, and a few other errands that I have been postponing.
Saturday night we went toThe GraveDiggers Ball here in Charlotte with our friends Kevin and Carrie from CrossFit.
Can you guess which one is my husband?
Yep, Mr President was my date for the night.
Believe it or not, he was the ONLY Obama that we saw. Pretty Cool.
A view from the top. This place was packed and wild. We may be a little to old for this but we blended in. (We Think)
This was my personal favorite costume. Of course it was, I love Christmas!

What a great night with our new friends here in Charlotte!
Sunday morning I was awoken with Pumpkin Shaped Pancakes. (Don't be jealous-I had to request them to be shaped like that)
But only the Best Hub in the world would actually do it, right?
Don't look for an exciting update next weekend, I'll be out of commission having my wisdom teeth removed! Bummer!
Happy Halloween!

Finally Friday!

Another busy week in Charlotte.

Monday was a slow start. I slipped on my stairs and landed on my tailbone Sunday night so it was painful to move.

I imagined I looked something like this!

Monday night was spent watching Autumn The Giraffe at The Greenville Zoo give birth.

Let me add that she was born after midnight, so it was a late night.

Wednesday we were busy bees volunteering at JAARS

Thursday was a fun shopping experience at the new local Publix. I will be doing all my grocery shopping there from now on, even if it is five minutes away instead of two.

All the while I managed to squeeze in a dentist appointment, hair appointment, and a ton of work!

What didn't happen....

All I wanted was to read this magazine and I never got to even open the cover, there's always the weekend.

Chambray Dress-Lu's Look

I mentioned a few months back about picking this dress up at Gap.

I just love it, so casual but such a polished and classic look if worn properly.

I think the model below is beautiful but I think that the Gap failed to show how cute it really could be.

It looks rather blah here and on the rack.

I paired it with a thick camel belt and some camel riding boots and I think it pulled off a more put together look rather than the dress just hanging on the body!


Happy Thursday!

Restaurant Road Trippin'

Charlotte is full of local restaurants, we have lived here for three years and I still have a long list of restaurants I would like to visit.
I love trying new restaurants, but life happens and you get sucked into running to grab something local and quick.
Here are a few I am hoping to get too soon....

Do any of you Charlotte gals have any restaurants I should add to my list or have an opinion on any of these?
I would love to get a group of Local Bloggers together to try one out!

Dear Lilly

I really need to have a talk with Ms. Pulitzer herself!
She is BREAKING me and making me want to make irrational purchases because her new fall line is incredibly cute.

Dream about it cute!

These are just a few of the items I am stalking at Belk to watch if they go on sale.

Finally Friday!

Another busy week done!

Here are some sneak peeks into my Busy Bee of a Week.

Jemma Palmer was born Thursday morning to one of my dearest friends Autumn, yes that was the shower from this past weekend! Whew, that was a close call.

I had a Lovely Boss' Day, thanks to my fun team!

Yes, that is a Creme Brulee!

I watched the debate Tuesday night and LOVED that Mrs Romney and The First Lady were showing their support for Breast Cancer awareness.

I found these cute printables on this blog

We had a great time at our Fall Festival at work!
