A Day on the Lake

Last weekend, Alyssa was sweet enough to invite me, Steph, Caitlyn, Jimaie, Sarah & Theresa (WHO NEEDS TO GET A BLOG ALREADY, WOMAN!) to her family’s fabulous cabin up at Shaver Lake.

We spent the weekend celebrating Alyssa and Jimaie’s birthdays by lounging at the lake, eating some bomb rainbow chip cupcakes (yes, I just bomb… they were that good), and playing some mighty intense games of Scattergories. That’s right, we know how to have a good time.

Alyssa was driving freaking FAST, hence the hair flippage going on. But we didn't die, so props to the Captain!

Thank you girls for a wonderful weekend!

Chick Flicks

Oh, Mr. Darcy. Oh, Mr. Darcy.

We love them, our moms love them, and even our men love them (although they rarely admit it)… And who can blame us? Girl movies are the best!

Doesn’t it seem like there’s a movie that was made to correspond with any given mood you’re in? Sappy, cheesy, silly, romantic, girl power-ish… ah, I love them all.

I’ve made a list of my favorites, so in no particular order (except my #1)…
