Let him do the talking, men adore good listeners.

Hi gals! (and guys? pretty sure there's never been a guy here except my dad..haha)

Yay, it's Friday! There's a really amazing bar right around the corner from our house we've been going to. It's like an episode of Portlandia exploded inside of it. The other night our friend asked about the cocktail that had bacon in it. We were told it was "a classic bacon cocktail...they've been doing them like EVERYWHERE. You haven't had one?" It was funny....I mean, have any of you had a bacon cocktail? I was going to try and be daring and take a drink but the smell alone made me sick. I'm also hoping Gabe will go experience "The Artist" with me. I went the first time with my sister. He asked me if he would be bored and I told him that sometimes I get bored at the zoo but I'm still glad I went. Anyway, I'm glad it's Friday and we have every excuse to do fun things. :)

Let's just talk for a minute about how much I love this dress from Dahlia. I imagined traipsing through New Orleans in summer when I first saw it. I thought I would have to layer it with tights and a coat and the whole deal until Spring but I got the nicest surprise when it was 75 degrees outside! No coat! No tights! I couldn't believe my good fortune.

Naturally my sis and I took baby Birds to the park and did some relaxing and reading and basking in the warm sun with some iced starbucks. Winter can certainly take it's toll but it's makes you appreciate the warm sun all that much more. For that alone, today I love winter. (Just don't ask me how I feel about on the next rainy day) :)

I can't believe it's already March. This weather has just been breathtaking. Spring is just around the corner! I can....almost see it....there it is! :)

















Wearing:

Dress: Dahlia
Socks: AA

Thank you, God, for this beautiful day that was seemingly made just to hold me over for Spring. ♥

Have great weekend everyone? Any fun plans?

  4. I still have to see the artist! When my bf's parents invited us to go a while back he said I would HATE it (before I knew what it was), how RUDE! Now it's gone and I am dying to see it! Guess i have to wait for it on streaming :). I've decided that your sister needs to be a photographer, her pictures are just insane! Here's to a wonderful weekend!

  30. You look like caracter from a fairy tale or a manga cartoon. I just love this look. Especially crazy about the ring, oh my!

  31. The combo of pink and mint is lovely. And I'm truly struggling to see how a bacon cocktail could ever be possible to drink, let alone exist in the first place. Lovely photos.
