months of celebrating.

i've been MIA the last few weeks and i'm sorry about that. and i don't think much is going to change in the coming weeks/months, but i'll try harder to be more present.


i feel like i need to give you a heads up so that you'll understand my whereabouts. because i'm sure you're all itching to know what i have planned. riiiiiiiight??!?!?! right.




this weekend i'll be in dc throwing a joint bachelorette party
there will be lots of food, there will be a wine tour with 15 girls, there will be penis straws, and there will be dancing.

phew, there you have it. october starts to lighten up a bit. we have one concert and i have my second bachelorette party in philadelphia. then in early november we have our 6th wedding in philadelphia.

before we know it, it'll be thanksgiving.

i can't even explain to you how much i'm looking forward to all the celebrating we have planned in the next few months. there's nothing better than spending days with the people you love. but even during all this craziness, i'm definitely going to make sure i savor all the little, unexpected things that are sure to pop up this summer - like a quiet meal at home with my love, a movie marathon night, and family bbq's.

what i wore.

it's been a hot minute since i last linked up with lindsey over at the pleated poppy but i finally have a picture of me in an outfit that's kind of worth writing about. 


exactly one week ago boyfriend and i headed out to happy hour in our new neighborhood. we originally told ourselves it would only be a 1-2 glass of wine kind-of-night. fast forward 5 hours and we found ourselves about 7 glasses deep with a few shots incorporated into the mix.



worst.idea.ever.

at least i was wearing a cute dress....?


dress {target}
sandals {target}
sunglasses {ray-bans}
necklace {some boutique in montclair, nj)
purse {coach circa 2007}


thursday morning hated us.

a summer must.

one of the many things i love about summer is live music.

whether it's outdoors, indoors, or a huge festival, i'm always up for it. it's a summer must.

summer just started and so far we've seen some amazing bands perform:

radiohead in washington, dc

lady antebellum in columbia, md

galactic in richmond, va

we have a few more up our sleeve that i can't wait for.

florence and the machine, medeski martin and wood, and the yeasayer's.


have you been to any concerts this summer?
are there any you're looking forward to?

tuna lettuce wraps.

last month i was craving a tuna sandwich but we didn't have any bread. after searching through our fridge, i opted for lettuce leaves - which i should do the majority of the time any way.

hello, bikini season.


i chopped up some celery and carrots and threw them in the mix. i also replaced the mayo with plain greek yogurt which tasted surprisingly good! it was my first time using the healthy alternative and i'm now a fan. 

the meal was very filling and i didn't feel like a huge slob afterwards.

now i call that a success!


have you used greek yogurt as a substitute?

is this real life?

 our home for the week.
14 people, all under one roof :)

 what we woke up to every day

 breakfast on the beach
hat {kiosk in mall}
shirt {boutique in southport, nc}
sunglasses {ray-bans}


this only lasted us two days

 volleyball on the beach

games by the pool

yay, vacation!


 bonfires on the beach

crab feast

hiked the cape hatteras lighthouse

 dress {old navy}
sunglasses {ray-bans}

walked the avon pier


our vacation in the outerbanks was perfection. i'm already missing that beautiful view from our house.

we ate great food, drank way too much, relaxed by the pool and soaked up as much beach time as we could. it's definitely been a struggle to get back in the work routine but at least i have another short week - friday is a global wide community service day with my company so i'll be spending it outside volunteering with our local parks and recreation folks. then boyfriend and i will be jumping in the car once again and making the drive to nj for a family reunion. 

i love the summertime.
