I just HAD to share this video, I saw this dog perform on the Wendy Williams show today (by the way, she is hilarious!), and this dog is AMAZING!! I have never seen a dog dance before, and below is the video that made her famous on You Tube. If you are like me, you will be laughing until you cry, and of course dancing in your seat!
Love it!! (P.S. The trainer and dog are from Chile, and I think the video is taped there as well - isn't it crazy to think that the dog only understands spanish...)

Friday was my sweet husband's birthday, and I sadly had to work ALL day and most of the evening..... We were able to grab a late dinner with some friends that night, but we will celebrate again next week :) I am planning on cooking something divine, and perhaps a mini bday cake.

Sorry for my lack of posts! I left Tuesday to visit friends in Charlotte, and then Atlanta. It was a quick trip, and kind of spur of the moment (which is always fun!) and I had a blast!
Bright and early - on the road, hazelnut iced coffee in hand,
lots of good tunes getting me through the drive :)
First stop - Charlotte, NC to visit my dear friend MW, and her precious new pup, Mazie! MW and I met in college and then we both lived in Memphis for a few years after school. She now is in school in Charlotte, which is just 2 hours from me! It was soo great to catch up and we enjoyed a delicious lunch together.
Next stop, the Atlanta, GA airport to say farewell to sweet Mimi, Syman, and baby L, as they departed the US of A for the UK. We had a wonderful dinner with Mimi's family and then said our goodbyes, as they headed to their terminal. It was such a sweet time together (we missed you Molly!) and we can't wait to come visit London!
How cute is she??!! She was alll smiles, alll the time. Precious.
Wednesday morning was full of lots of relaxing, pizza for lunch, manicures, catching up on recorded shows (Biggest Loser and DWTS), more relaxing, and enjoying the sunshine outside.
(Love my nail color - like a muddy, brown color).
Then it was dinner with the girls - mexican of course!
My $12 margarita...yikes.
After dinner, we rented "The Killers"
and then had a slumber party at Ellen's house.
I had SUCH a great time -- thanks girls for letting me come at the last minute!
The car ride home wasn't too shabby, especially with
a little bit of this....
They have MINI blizzards now..so cute! And they're so tiny, they really don't even count, right?!

In my opinion, the stars really snazzed it up this week in the style department. From bold colors, to short hemlines, lots of lace, and pretty ruffles. I'm loving these pretty looks from the week. Do you have a favorite?
Blake Lively in Matthew Williamson
Taylor Swift in Miu Miu
Eva Mendes in Zac Posen

The season is changing from summer to fall, and designers and department stores are breaking out the fur! I have always loved the look of fur (faux, of course) ever since I got an obnoxious winter white coat in middle school that looked like a giant poodle. Now, my taste has become more refined, and I am loving these faux fur styles...
