Can we just talk about how nice the weather has been this week!?
Like nice enough for me to take my pup out in my workout shorts (and my hubby's coat/snow boots since our backyard is a slushy mess. Our new neighbors might think I'm crazy but hey, I don't care because it's warm enough!!)
I am seriously craving all the bright colors. All the florals. All the pastels. All the patterns.
Spring anything and everything.
1. Buy a Lady a Drink
Stella Artois teamed up with Water.org donating and starting a new campaign to get water to 750 million people around the world that don't have clean water. More specifically, for the ladies that have to desperately try to collect the water for their families each day. They've designed three different beer glasses - one inspired by India, one by Ethiopia and one by Honduras.
One glass purchased will provide five years of clean water for one person in one of these places.
FIVE YEARS FOR ONE GLASS.
Snaps to the husband for finding this great cause! Such a clever title because when he told me to look it up I definitely thought it was a bar app or something like the gif above. We're getting ourselves a set this weekend. To find out more or pick up some yourselves; check out their website: here
2. Spring Shopping.. Finally!
Today Mom & I are playing hookie (it's nice when your
3. Hollywood Happenings
How perfect was it that Ben Stiller announced Zoolander Two. AT Fashion Week. AS Derek Zoolander. Whoever thought up the idea for Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson to walk the runway at the Valentino show is a genius. I can't wait until next February.
*Fun fact: In college I broke my rib and spent a lot of time in the apartment recovering, my roommate and I tried to watch this since it was one of our faves and had to turn it off because all the laughing was too painful for my rib*
Anna Wintour and Derek Zoolander chatting: here. Kinda surprised she played along.
How fantastic would this be if it was actually true. These three girls together = pure hilariousness. I've heard rumors it's on. I've hear rumors it's a rumor. I've heard rumors that Jen is out and the other two are in. What is the deal people?! I have a feeling it's definitely not happening, but it would be so fabulous if it was!
4. Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels
Okay, so whoever came up with this saying never tasted cupcakes.
Or cheese fries.
Or cookie dough.
Anyways, a while back I blogged that I'd given up sweets for a month (then I switched it for all of lent) but I vowed to give myself two days off - my brother's birthday and my grandma's birthday. Only two days for six weeks! Anyway, those two days are both this week! You can imagine how excited I am for one little piece of cake each birthday. Oh my gosh!
Whenever I eat my tiny boring little lunches I think of this scene in The Devil Wears Prada.
The diet's going well but my goodness I can't wait until it's over.
5. Wedding Tasks - Check!
Six months after our wedding and we've finally wrapped up our "post wedding to do's." We ordered our wedding album this week! Wahoo! Best part was since we prolonged it. Then cancelled an appointment. They let us do everything over email and not go in for an appointment (total score for one less errand). It won't be in until summer (seriously, why does it take so long) but it feels good to keep checking little things off the list and be done with it. Oh and I can't wait to see the final product. Also the girl at the photographer sounds just like Yolanda from Real Housewives of BH so I love chatting with her one the phone.
Alas, a bride no more. Well not to Derek, he still calls me his bride. Being a wife and newlywed is much better.
Bachelor TalkOf course Whintey handled the meeting the family situation perfectly, like she always does!!
Becca brought cookies?! You go girl! so cleaver and she'd win my heart if I was a blonde sister.
The consume a lot of wine in Iowa. A lot.
The Soules family looks for a great time.
How sweet when Chris' mom wiped Becca's hair out of her face - what a sweet lady!
Also, did we already know that Chris owns 800 acres of land?! I must have missed that before.
Neil Lane appears in every finale now I guess?!
Must have been a little ticked off that he was in Iowa. In the cold.
How sweet were Chris' parents at the end?! Those two were just so happy! We (as in plural, as in my husband AND I might have shed a tear at this point)
Has there ever been a bigger bachelor nation star bigger than Ashley S? I don't think so. She's beautiful. Smart and normal (see this article from Reality Steve: here) and everyone's talking about her and loves her. I think she's the real winner of the show.
Nothing can top Jimmy Kimmel. "Should I load Juan Pablo into your car." HILARIOUS. Do we know if Chris actually gets to keep him?!
For once in his life (well Bachelor Hosting) Chris Harrison finally was not lying about shocking twists.
How is Britt even involved?! The audience even barely clapped for her.
I read they start filming this weekend so hopefully we'll know soon who it is. And hopefully we're hearing Kaitlin's name. Girlfriend looked pisssssed on the After.
Poor girl had a rough time with the time change just like us.
Sometimes she sits on my lap at work and she's just recently learned to hoist herself up onto the desk. Usually she sniffs around where she shouldn't but she needed a new nap spot on this day.
Linking up here, here and here today
