Hello Again, Weekend

It'a Friday, Friday, Friday! :) And my weekend has officially started. I had bought a top & pair of shorts yesterday at TJ Maxx. I returned the shorts today though, right after work. When I went home, and tried them both on...I just decided the shorts weren't for me. They were pretty short, and too close to my thigh. I think it's a more flattering look on me when shorts aren't super short, and also when they are a bit wider than my thighs. They were such a great colour, though! Bright yellow. I really want a pair of bright yellow shorts.
I'm really looking forward to going to my parent's tomorrow for a bbq. All of my grandparents will be there, my sister, cousins, and maybe an aunt and uncle. I haven't seen my sister since Easter. There'll be lots of good food, that's for sure! My mom is a GREAT cook/baker. And I'm not just saying that because she's my mom, ha. I baked a Funfetti cake to bring over. I've had a couple boxes of the cake mix in my cabinet for a long time now. I'm sure there'll be plenty of other desserts there already, but one more can't hurt! Ha. 
In the pictures below, I'm wearing an orange dress from Express. I bought it a year ago. I LOVE it. I had seen it before in the store, and had even tried it on. But, just didn't buy it right away. When I went to Las Vegas with my friend, and tried it on again, I had to have it!  The colour is great, too. 
The first picture was taken at work today. I had so many rainbow items on today. :) I had even more that weren't pictured, ha. 
Even though our AC is blasting in our living room, (we have a wall unit) when I took these few pictures in our kitchen...I was sweating a lot already! The air doesn't really reach the kitchen, unfortunatly!

Another New Dress

Hello there! I had a package arrive today from Modcloth. :) A dress I've been very eagerly awaiting! It's lovely. It has my favourite colours in it, and I think the design is adorable. I really like the shape of the dress, too. The only problem is, that it's too loose at the waist. But, I'll have to wear it with my thick black belt in order to make it look good. I have so many shoes and accessories that I can match with it, so that's great. This is my THIRD dress with a house print on it, ha! But, I LOVE all three of them. I love unique, funky, bright prints.
I want to wear it to work tomorrow! When I get something new that I love, I always want to rock it right away ha. I'll just wear it with my pink bolero to work, so I'm more covered.
It's so hot in our apartment! I'm sure my hair is going to look quite frizzy in the pictures I post below, ha. Oh well, there's nothing I can do about that, unfortunatly. 
Dinner's in the oven- I can't wait to eat. Bob cooked grilled chicken with broccoli, peas, and tomatos. So yum! He cooks it once a week, he does it for me because I need at least one healthy homemade dish a week! There's always enough for me to have leftovers the next night, which is great.

BBQ, round 2

Hello! Ahh, so tough to go back to work today. What a fabulous weekend I had. And oh, how fast it went! 
Yesterday afternoon we went over to Bob's friend's parent's for a bbq. We had a really good time. I played a couple games of cornhole, and did pretty well. I also got to play with Bob's friend's niece. She's adorable! Six years old, and really sweet and fun. I ate a lot of great food! Going to another bbq this Saturday, at my parent's. 
It's been nice getting to take pictures outside. I'm going to try to do that more, while the weather is in my favor. 
This is what I wore yesterday:

It's Nothing I'll Forget, When the Moon Gets Tired...

Hello! This afternoon Bob and I went over to his parent's house. They only live ten minutes away from us. They were having friends over for a bbq. But, we did end up being inside almos the whole time, since it was cool out. We did play catch with a football for a little while, and also played a game of cornhole. 
It was nice to have different scenery for my outfit pictures, much better than the usual backdrop of my kitchen, ha.
I really love my Salt Water Sandals. I have them in fuschia, too. They really are soooo comfortable! 
Tomorrow we're going to another bbq, at Bob's friend's parent's house. It's great having so much good, free food! :) I'm so glad we have off tomorrow. It'll definetly be hard to go back to work Tuesday! 
Mad Men is starting now, so I have to go watch it!

Productive Saturday

Hello there! Happy Saturday! :) I've gotten a lot done today...I got up a 9 a.m. and I cleaned the apartment, did laundry, baked cookies, worked out, showered, and got ready. I like getting things done early, getting them out of the way. I don't like when errands or tasks weigh on my mind all day. Now that I got everything done I've just been relaxing. There's nothing decent on TV now though, ha. There usually isn't weekends during the day. 
Tonight we are hanging out with some of Bob's friends, and one of his friend's girlfriend. I hope we'll play a board game. I'd really like to play Cards Against Humanity again, but not many people we know have it. We really should just order it already!! 
I still have another kind of cookie to bake. I made Funfetti ones earlier, but they're super easy to make. I'll be making chocolate oatmeal cookies from scratch later on today. We're going to Bob's parent's house tomorrow afternoon, and I want to bring over cookies. It was supposed to be an outside bbq, but now I doubt we'll be outside since it's not supposed to get too warm.
I bought a bottle of Pinnacle Whipped last night. I've had a sip of it before, in a friend's mixed drink, and liked it. So, I finally actually bought a bottle of it ha. I had a little last night, mixed with Pepsi. It tasted great, almost like a cream soda.

Start of a Three Day Weekend!

Hello. Well, finally the three day weekend is here! My job surprised us by letting us leave an hour and a half early today. It was great! Tonight I met my grandmother for dinner at Panera. We had a really good time. It was so great to see her in person again, and catch up more. (We talk on the phone while she's out in Cali.) I had broccoli cheddar soup and bread. They gave me a bigger chunk of bread than usual, ha. So, that was good!
My friend's coming over here in a few mintutes. We're just going to hang out here at the apartment, I think.
Of course the weather got crappy right as the weekend approached! It was so hot & humid early in the week, like summer. Now, it cooled down a lot and rained off and on all day/night so far. It's so cool out that I was cold even with a trench coat on! I left for work this morning like I had the other mornings this week- with no sweater/jacket on. It was a little chilly out when I walked to my car. But, when my friends and I left work to go out for lunch, it was quite cool! I was cold with just my shirt & jeans on. 
In the first two pictures below are geese. I saw the parents and about seven little babies yesterday. So adorable! But, they were on the side of a very busy road. I hope they left that area! 
In the other pictures below, I am wearing one of my favourite tops. I love the shades of pink and orange in the shirt, and I think the style is quite flattering. I like cowl neck style shirts a lot. And this shirt matches so many of my shoes and accessories!!
