Thoughts For Friday

Jan 6, 2012

Last night I enjoyed a much needed night out with two of my bestie bloggers, Chassity and Caycee. We dined at Rue De Jean one of my favorite restaurants in town. They have the most amazing burgers and Sushi.

Has anyone seen Food, Inc yet? Funny to go from talking about Burgers to food documentaries but that’s how I roll. My friend Katie has convinced me I need to watch it. Renting it this weekend. Here’s to hoping I will still want to eat Cheeseburgers afterwards.

Do yourself a favor and go buy some of this Chocolate, VOSGES. I got some in my stocking this year and it is the most delish chocolate ever! I got the mini library set and the Carmel Toffee Bar knocked my socks off!

I am really lusting over these adorable cuffs, from Banana Republic of all places!

Graphic Enamel Cuff

Dot Bangle

Exotic Bracelet
Banana Republic is offering 30% off all regular priced Merchandise so now is the time to scarf these babies up!

I just picked up this book after reading Nancy’s review here. I can’t wait to dig in and simplify my life and get organized! I read the first chapter last night and think it is going to be a great read.

Happy Friday. Have a great weekend!

    When I visited my girlfriend in Charleston, she brought me to Rue De Jean! It was delish. Funny you pictured those BR bangles. I have a credit there and was JUST looking at them this week. I like the pink and navy. I need a new read and the book pictured will be just the one for the start of my new year. I think I am too scared to watch Food, Inc. Ha!

  3. Aw so much fun that you had dinner with blogging besties! Sounds like so much fun! Have a great weekend! xo

    I'm going to Rue tonight!! Any recommendations? šŸ™‚ I've been before, but didn't like my food. Maybe I'll get sushi!

  7. Sounds like you had a great night out with the girls! Those bracelets are gorgeous. That book sounds wonderful and would be a big help to me right now – my house definitely needs some purging and organizing!!
