Hi, loves! Did you all have a nice weekend? I spent my weekend with L and we had so much fun! A large portion of our time was devoted to flipping between Say Yes to the Dress and the Olympics, however we did take a break from lounging to go to a fun summer concert on Saturday night. While the concert was a little really crowded, L and I still managed to have a great time together! Don't you just love a great girls' weekend?
Here are a few of my favorite snapshots from the weekend...Have a wonderful day!

Two adorable puppies
I wrapped up my weekend by making some peach cobbler...yum!
TGIF! I'm having a girls' weekend with my beautiful L and I couldn't be more excited! This weekend with my bff will be sure to be filled with tons of laughter, a lot of chips and salsa, and reality tv shows...sounds great, right?! Have a wonderful weekend, loves!
Happy Thursday, friends! It's once again my favorite day of the week where I share three things I'm currently lusting over! Despite yesterday being the hottest day of the year, I've found myself starting to be drawn to dark hues and rich golds...this means that cooler temperatures will come soon, right?!
What made your list of favorite finds for the week?
1. You all know my love for monograms, so I'm obviously in love with this mini monogram necklace from the always reliable BaubleBar!
2. I've had my eye on this pave bracelet from J. Crew for a while now. It has such a classic look that would add the perfect touch to any outfit!
3. Who doesn't love a great tote?! This Madewell tote comes in about a million colors, but I really love the classic black and chestnut brown combination...perfect for fall!
It's been a few weeks since I've shared a Monday Pick-Me-Up, so I decided to share some wonderful words that I've found lately. I have a serious love for well placed words, which is no secret if you've been following ATC for a while so tell me, what are your favorite quotes or words of wisdom?
Remember last month when I mentioned my fascination with lovely images filled with balloons? Well, it seems that I've found a new favorites thing to Pin...bicycles and flowers! In my opinion, nothing says summer more than a simple picture of a vintage bike and some beautiful flowers. Here are a few of my favorites images that I've found!
Happy Friday, darlings! Over the past few months I've found myself drawn to the color, taste, and smell of lavender. From relaxing lotions to yummy cookies, I seriously can't get enough! So, I thought I'd share some lovely lavender images to send your all off into your weekend...
Feeling steamy? I don't what the weather has been like where you all live, but here in Iowa is has been so hot! Whenever we reach the dog days of summer I find myself craving (when I'm not dreaming of ice cream that is) fresh meals to help beat the heat. Here are a few recipes that I've run across while escaping the warm temps the last couple of days. You can bet that I'll be trying all of these yummy ideas very soon!
Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? An entire month devoted to celebrating ice cream. What could be better, right?? In honor of this spectacular month of ice cream, I pulled together a few dresses inspired by the tasty treat!
Tell me, what's your favorite flavor to indulge on during these hot summer days?
Hi, friends! It seems like all I have been doing lately is apologizing for being a bit absent...and hopefully this will be the last time! This week I have been in the process of moving and starting a new position with really long and crazy hours. My hope is that after this weekend I'll get the hang of my new schedule and will be back to posting every week day. Have a great Thursday!
How was my weekend you ask? Well, it just so happened to be the best.weekend.ever. Seriously!
Throughout the weekend I was able to spend time with M (a.k.a. the person with me in all of the photos below!), eat yummy food, drink delicious beer, AND accomplish two more things from my 25 Before 25 list! Here's a glimpse into why my weekend was so great...
I attended my first major league baseball game, which also happened to be number 10 on my list! Although it was an absolutely sweltering game with a temp of 105, M and I still had a great time!...and the Cardinals won!
After the game we went to BB's Jazz, Blues, and Soups where we had some delicious local brews, burgers, and listened to great blues!
On Sunday we knocked number 15 off of my list by visiting the St. Louis Zoo! It was once again a hot day, but we had such a fun time walking around looking at all of the adorable animals.
So tell me, how was your weekend? Did you find a way to escape the heat, or did you brave it like me? Have a wonderful Monday!
