Live Well: A Day in the Life

Target dress, J. Crew necklace

This post brought to you by my husband and I goofing around with our camera while prepping for the dinner party we hosted this past Saturday. My apologies if the pictures seem a bit random.

We were so excited to host a few friends this past weekend for a little get-together over at our apartment. Because our common tie was Rice, my husband and I decided that it would only be appropriate to serve Tex-Mex. We whipped up some guacamole, queso, pico de gallo, refried beans, fajitas, and (of course) some margaritas. We only managed to capture a few of those things on film (well, digital), though. Here's what we got:



I obviously picked this flower to










So what was everyone up to this weekend? We squeezed in a long walk on Saturday morning then spent the rest of the time watching football and prepping for the dinner party (and watching football at the dinner party). Sunday was low-key as well: home-cooked, brunch, a walk around the neighborhood, reading on the roof, nail appointment with a friend (hi Troy!!!), and then Breaking Bad - do you guys watch it? This last season is killing me. It's the least enjoyable enjoyable show ever. I can't explain it.

However you spent your weekend, I hope you had as much fun as I did. Happy Monday!

Live Well: 2/9/13 Weekend Recap

Per the usual, I had a wonderful weekend here in San Francisco. Here are a few of the moments that made it fun:


My surprise Valentine's Day gift from my mom that showed up on Friday night. My husband worked late on Friday, so this gift kept me company while I got my trashy TV fix from Say Yes to the Dress and Fashion Police. (And yes, you will most certainly be seeing this bracelet in future posts.)


Restocked our wine supply. Something tells me these won't be around for long!


Made cake batter truffles for a little dinner party we hosted. Despite their somewhat strange appearance, they were pretty tasty! (Recipe later this week.)


Enjoyed a very chill Sunday morning...

I hope you guys had as great of a weekend as I did! Enjoy your Monday.
