M & K are Hitched!

This post is lonnng overdue but I wanted to wait for the newlyweds (aka. LTK's fave readers) to return from their incredible honeymoon to Argentina, Uruguay, and somewhere else? fancy & fabulous.

M&K got married St. Patty's Day weekend in Charleston. And not just Charleston...but a beautiful historic plantation under the Avenue of the Oaks. We all stayed downtown on King Street which I had not visited in years. Best shopping, nightlife & food.  Not to mention how fun it is celebrating a best friends wedding with all of your friends together in one place.

Everything about the wedding was perfect from the gorgeous setting, grilled cheese station, 80's band (ohhhh yea), and just the simple elegance.

Complete Southern Charm.

Not to mention, M was super chill ;) and had the time of her life which always makes for a fun wedding.

Oh & she let us bridesmaids where any color dress and any style.

People ranted & raved over how good it looked and it just so happens everyone wore complimenting colors...yep, she knows her friends well.

Enough chat, here are the few (sadly) pics that I took.

Tales of a Dog in Trouble...

Well, hello. I had the perfect weekend. Hope you did too.

The weather was beautiful and we had zero, zilch (yep you read that right) plans. I now know what it feels like to truly relax on a weekend...not that our weekends are tough or stressful ...they are just always busy and jam packed. This weekend literally felt like a 4 day vacation & I'm actually productive today at work.

So, right about the time last year we cleared out 13 trees in our backyard, seeded new grass, & planted lots of pretty plants - ligustrium, azaleas, hydrangeas, and redbud trees.

I just admired the progress of the redbud trees last week- we're still unsure about the other things - and luckily I snapped a picture...

because I came home Friday to this...

Bad Pup.

I will admit it's hard to stay mad at that little face. We still have one red bud standing so we'll see how well my discipline works out.

Until next time...

Spring Obsession: Minted

I'm no fashionista, but I think it's safe to say the official trend of the moment is anything Mint.

The color is all over the place. It's making it's mark on everything from denim, to dresses, to accessories, and even kitchens.

Currently on my radar is a good pair of Skinny Minty's (har-har) for Spring.

Here are a few that might be 'mint to be' (woahhh)

Oh Happy Day!

Wigs & Whereabouts

Well Hello friends. It's been a busy week and I feel like I've been all over the place.

We left off last week during one of our best friends Big 30th birthdays. 30, really??!

We kicked off the weekend and "wigged out". There is something crrrrrazy fun about putting on a wig and getting wild. It was a birthday for the books.

Next up I traveled home for 2 of my best friends baby showers. {Pics to come soon - on the camera}

Then to Birmingham for a quick work trip.

And now signing off for the weekend for M & K's nups!!!! wahoooooo!!! It is going to be the perfect weekend in Charleston celebrating some of our best friends.


This pic screams Spring. Not gonna lie, it's a little tough waking up to dark bed but I'm loving the extra hour of sunlight at night.

Tales of a Pup

Lately around our house with a dog has been entertaining to say the least.

Nightly wrestle sessions...

TV watching...

Playing -in the mud-...


And lastly a trip to the vet for spaying....

Not a fan of the cone.
It's going to be a long 2 weeks.


Happy Birthday Ans!!!!!

It's a BIG one. Can't wait to wig out with you Fri!!

Three Ingredient Tacos

Hi friends -

If you are on pinterest, you've probably seen this recipe pinned a zillion times.

Like others, I pin fancy recipes and pretty images knowing I will never taste or touch any of the pins.

This says it best:

But I am here to tell you this recipe is different.

It's Easy. Delicious. Simple. Cheap. Dinner party worth serving.

We made this last night and I think we will make it again - maybe tomorrow.

3 Ingredients:

-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
-1 jar of salsa
-1 packet of low-sodium taco seasoning

Put the chicken in the crock pot, pour the salsa & seasoning on top, mix well and

Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

After cook time, take a fork to the mixture and the chicken shreds instantly.

Result: Flavorful shredded chicken that makes killer tacos.

That's it.

Thank you Chocalate Therapy. Recipe here

Friday Fly

Hey there, it's the weekend again.

Wine Shoe was great. Really, you should go for a wine class if you like that sort of thing.

It was very entertaining & we did actually learn something. 5 S's of wine...do you know them???

sight, swirl, smell, sip, & savor.

Do you feel so much more like a connoisseur now?! Also, all of the wines were non-commercialized {no chemical, no preservatives} and under $20. Can't beat that.

And just FYI, you don't need to take the ridiculously expensive round trip cab down there. You don't really catch a buzz. Wine 101 - you sip not drink.
