High Five for Friday

Ah what a week it's been! My weekend will be packed with sorority recruitment that I'm not sure if I'll be able to slip in posts next week! We shall see!!

1. I have been obsessed with this shirt. I used to be able to quote this whole movie (and sketches) as a kid. Yes, I was probably around 5 or 6 at the time and quoting a horribly lewd script but only in the privacy of my parents kitchen.
{image}
2. I have been trying to up the ante in my work wear. I used to be so creative and now I feel like I am falling into a pit of tops and skirts with no extra flair or personality. I would like to try to become comfortable in work pants, that doesn't mean I have to stray for my monochromatic comfort zone though right?
{image}
3. I kind of can't believe I was able to find the original image from my pin! AND that the blogger was kind enough to put links! Too bad this necklace is no longer available, but the jeweler has plenty of other goodies to scope out!
{image}
4. I'm already excited for Halloween! This year I really want to go as Marceline the Vampire Queen. Mr. Chris could easily be Finn right? This cosplay is just awesome!
{image}
5. Finally, my savior of the week, Coffee. You are just the best, I like you hot, I like you cold, I like you homemade, I like you made by Starbucks baristas, I like you in a bottle, I like you in a mug, You wake me up and comfort me in a way I don't know if anything else could. You're just the best. That you for being you.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Wine Down Wednesday

Oh man guys I have been super stressed lately so who knows what the blog schedule will be like for the next, oh let's say 10 days. Then I promise I will be back to a regular schedule. {fingers crossed I still post daily} 

Yesterday just about everything went wrong. I just couldn't get any work done for one reason or another! I came home and had my glass of wine...
This didn't really happen, I don't drink that often so I'm pretty much a light weight. But sometimes that's all you need right? Also a husband who so owes you a back rub and doesn't mind that you went from work perfection straight to sweatpants central. We all have those days right? RIGHT!? 

So tell me, what do you do to relax?

Also I found this image through Pinterest from Zipz wine, which is really cool idea, anyone tried this before??

Book Club: Invisible Monsters by: Chuck Palahniuk

I just finished Invisible Monsters and I am about as pleased as I could be. I have read a couple books by Chuck Palahniuk before and this experience was no different. I was entertained, I was grossed out, and was painted a very vivid picture of a very disturbed person, and it was awesome. Chuck had written several well known books such as Fight Club, Haunted, and Choke.
{image}

This book twists and twists and twists. It follows Shannon McFarland, a beautiful model and her life before and after she is shot in the face while driving on the freeway. Her best friend steals all her clothes, her fiance leaves her, and she is left horribly disfigured and the only person to help her pick up the pieces is her new friend Queen Supreme, Brandy Alexander.

As with any Palahnuik book no one is who they seem to be. The same goes with the writing, Palahnuik uses 'jumps' to go back and forth between stories and you have to keep up your you will be left in the dust. This is a book that if you can put it down you'll have to read the previous 2 chapters and you will still be lost. This may grate on some people but I enjoyed it because he writes so climatically I really feel like I am watching a movie in my head.

I really enjoyed this book, it is highly grotesque, sexual, and full of drugs but it weaves an intense story that I might have to read again now that I know it all!

Have you read a Palahnuik book before? What was it? What did you think?

Strawberry Cobbler

When my parents came to visit I said I made them a cobbler. Now my grandma probably makes the best cobbler ever, my dad, who is obsessed with chocolate will forgo chocolate for a cherry cobbler. I think part of what makes her cobblers so good is that she grows or used to grow all of her own fruits. Seriously, I have awesome childhood memories of picking berries, potatoes, apples, grapes, and fishing at their farm. I can't share her recipe, mostly because I don't have it but I can share the recipe I used over the weekend. This cobbler is more cakey but still delicious!

Ingredients:
3 cups fresh strawberries
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter (softened)
1 cup self rising flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup almond milk
zest of one lemon

Directions:
Clean strawberries and cut into thick slices. Place sliced strawberries in a 9x9-inch glass baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray. Zest your lemon and sprinkle sliced strawberries with the 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, along with the zest and toss to coat with the sugar, and dot the berries with small pieces of the softened butter.
In a bowl, mix the self-rising flour, 3/4 cups of granulated sugar, and milk until just combined. Pour batter over the strawberries.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour until lightly golden browned and the berries are bubbly.


Adapted from here. Does it count as adapted if I just changed 2 ingredients?

Weekend Update: Parents Weekend


After a long week at work I got to hang out with my parents! That may not be everyone's ideal but my parents are pretty awesome and I got them all to myself since Mr. Chris was going out on a Bro-cation in Asheville. I had pretty much completely cleaned our house the week before so while I waited I prepped a breakfast casserole and made a strawberry cobbler. They got in pretty late so we mostly just caught up and hung out and went to bed. 
The next day we headed out to look for furniture for our apartment. We have been lacking a nice chair in our living room and I just didn't even know the first place to look. Actually I did, but a place that I could maybe even try to afford! We walked around Furniture Market in Raleigh and Green Front Interiors. Furniture shopping is exhausting! Constantly getting up and down from extremely comfortable sofas to what might as well be an anvil really takes a toll! We decided it was to for a refresher and headed to CowFish and split the Seared Sesame Tuna, Volcanic Roll, and the Tasmanian Devil Roll. My mom and I also enjoyed really good glasses of wine, I got the Acrobat Pinot Gris and she got the Kris Pinot Grisio. 

 We then went on to South Point to check out West Elm, Crate and Barrel, Renovation Hardware and Pottery Barn. Whew! After all that walking around hung out at home for a bit and got ready for our next delicious meal! After all this was my parents 39th wedding anniversary! They love Bida Manda so we got reservations and went to town! We had a great server, Laura who gave us her recommendations and convinced us to order it all! My mom and I both got the Tom Ka Gai soup and my dad ordered the Spring Rolls. We then split the Caramelized Ginger Pork Ribs which just fell right off the bone and were seasoned to perfection. There was a good ginger taste but you could still taste the meat which is something you don't always get. We shared the Green Papaya Salad with Duck Breast and it was way better than I thought it would have been. It had a nice crunch to it and the duck was delish! We also enjoyed the Beef Larb served in the traditional way and it was so good! Larb is not a very appetizing name but it was so tasty and unlike anything I've had before I definitely think everyone should try it. They finished off our meal with desserts since they heard it was my parents anniversary. They served us a Trio plate with Coconut Custard Crisp, Apricot-Tamarind Cobbler and a Chocolate Espresso Creme Brulee. 
 I had a great weekend with these cuties and I wish them many more years together!

A Bunch of Bull

Last night we got to go to a Bulls game with Chris' residency and we had so much fun! Sometimes it's nice to be able to just hang out with people and I think a baseball game is great for that. Mostly because I'm not a huge fan of baseball but it can serve as a distraction when you need one. haha!
We had great seats down by the field but I don't think it made a difference to us since we barely watched it. I love being able to just sit and chat with our friends. We actually stayed until the end of the game through the sprinkling! 
My parents are coming in tonight and I'm really looking forward to spending time with them. It's also their 39th wedding anniversary! It's crazy! I hope everyone has a great weekend! I know I will!

Breakfast Time!

It's too hard to say breakfast is my favorite meal but it's the one I don't get to enjoy as much as I would like. On workdays I like to just grab a Kashi Bar (these are my fav) or something small like that. But on the weekends we like to make sure we have a hardy breakfast. 

This past weekend I made probably my favorite sandwich so far. I love a good breakfast sandwich, I will probably never pass up a La Farm Croque Madame! But for an at home sandwich this one was the best so far! 
I love a good fried egg! I piled two fried eggs on top of cheddar cheese, rosemary ham and Harris Teeter cheese loaf bread. My mouth is watering! I also like to get some veggies in there so I simply slice some hot house tomatoes and add some salt and pepper. 

How do you guys like your eggs? I used to exclusively eat scrambled eggs until my eyes were opened to the beauty of a fried egg.

Book Club: Confessions of a Sociopath: A Life Spent Hiding in Plain Sight By: M.E. Thomas

I actually finished Confessions of a Sociopath: A Life Spent Hiding in Plain Sight while in Charleston. I have to say this is a hard book to review. On one hand it was totally fascinating, on the other it was very much like a textbook at many parts.
{image}

This book was not really what I expected, I thought it would be more of a memoir and seeing the world through her eyes rather than a textbook, psychological review of sociopaths. I expected personal stories and an interpretation that would show that this is how a sociopath thinks contrasted by how a 'normal' person thinks. I had trouble reading it because I felt like sometimes it was the same story over and over or the same small story and then textbook guidance. I feel like I might be more able to spot a sociopath now, however that doesn't really matter to me personally, as not all sociopaths are bad.  I learned a lot about what makes a sociopath but if I really wanted to know that I could just go to Wikipedia and learn the exact same thing in a much shorter time span.

I also got kind of sick of her writing, I know the book is about her personally and this all may be true but if she was so smart couldn't she come up with other ways to say she was 'razor smart' and 'quick witted'? I read those words just too may times. It's probably a combination of the narcissism from being a sociopath and maybe just book writing in general but seriously, I got it the first time!

I found it funny that she writes a blog. I think a lot of bloggers are pretty narcissistic and it shows more clearly in some than it does in other. I'm not saying all bloggers are but, I mean how many pictures can you post of yourself and not be thought of as narcissistic? Writing a blog does not mean you need to, or even have to capability of writing a book. If I get a book deal, Lord help us all.

Overall I would say read this sparingly, when the writing and repetitiveness starts to grate on you put it down and never pick it up again because you've basically read the whole thing. Thinking back on it this whole book has sociopathy written all over it! The title is pretty misleading, a 'confessional' leads us to believe there are some juicy stories within the pages, 'hiding in plain sight' makes us think she has done some heinous deeds, yet tells us pretty much none of that and focuses more on lame manipulation games. Genius! She played me for a fool!

So let me know, have you read this book? What did you think? Have you ever known a sociopath? Are you a sociopath?

*I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review. All thoughts are my honest opinion.

Bible Study: Bless These Lips by: Sharla Fritz

Over almost the whole year my bible study and I have been using the book Bless these Lips as our guide. Yes this book has a funny name, and yes a few times my fellow studiers might have rolled our eyes at certain times in the text, but it really helped us realize how much what we say impacts those around us. Overall it was a great way to get to know my group, how we talk to different people, our spouses, our co-workers, our (their) kids and strangers. 

{image}
I definitely took away several tips on avoiding hurting peoples feelings and was really struck on how people interpret words differently, after all that's kind of what a Bible study is about, reading the text and having your own interpretation. I really liked her real-life stories preceding the lesson, it really brought everything to life for me and I was able to bring that closer to my life rather than a far away bible lesson. Of course I and my fellow studiers still won't be perfect since finishing this book but it brings us a little closer to being compassionate and taking a moment to think about what we are saying to not only others but to ourselves as well. 

The one thing we didn't really like in this book was the Day 5 lesson where we had to interpret the meaning and pursue the application of the scripture we were studying. It was a lot of writing and we preferred talking over items rather than writing everything down. We actually didn't like that part so much that we skipped the last day so we wouldn't have to write it out! But I know other people really like that kind of lesson. 

Overall we enjoyed this book and learned a lot about ourselves, our relationship with Christ, with each other, and those around us. It has helped us choose our words more carefully and more compassionately. 

Are you in a Bible study? What do you use to guide you? Leave me your recommendations in the comments!

Weekend Update

We had a pretty packed weekend! On Friday we met with all the new residents for Friday's on the Front Porch and then a group of us went to Old Chicago for dinner. It was nice to meet the new residents and they got to meet me as I knocked on their resident room door and welcomed myself in! hahaha! 
I think this weekend was particularly packed due to recent new student move-ins. They start class on Tuesday and the buses are already getting crowded. We all still want to soak in those last bits of summer so after a long day of building a wood rack for our fireplace wood we invited our friends out to listen to jazz over at Meadowmont. We got to bring our pups and then ventured over to Five Guys since no one besides us had been there before! Little Louis had a lot of fun!

On Sunday I had a meeting while Kona and Louis had a play date. But it was just too hot for the dog park so they played inside. Then we headed out to Jordan Lake to play around in our kayaks! Kona isn't a very strong swimmer so he wears a puppy pfd

Proof that he does actually enjoy it!
Also I can't get over these videos! I think it's so funny when dogs paddle before they are in the water!

We finished off the weekend with a healthy dinner and macarons! I ordered some as an engagement present for my friend Hannah and couldn't resist getting some for ourselves!
So far we have only tried red velvet and cookies and cream and both were so good and really tasted like what they were!
I hope you all had a great weekend as well!

Charleston: Where we ate

For the most part Mr. Chris and I made our own food, brought our own breakfast, just to keep our costs down. We did need to eat something when we first got there and since our place wasn't ready yet we decided to check out Dellz Deli Downtown. It was delicious! I was looking on Yelp and it had 5 stars out of 54 reviews! I mean you can't get much better than that! I got a Beach Bum and I think Chris got the Tummy Yummy Mahi Mahi Wrap and they were to die for! So good! It was all so fresh and made right in front of us. The place is tiny though! 5 stools! Its a major local late night food stop so I doubt people are really hanging out but since we had no where to go we stayed.

The second place we tried was Xiao Bao Biscuit. It was an old gas station converted to a really cool bar and restaurant. I think we all ordered almost everything on the menu and shared! My favorites were the Okonomiyaki, which was like a cabbage pancake with an egg and pork on top and it was so tasty! It quite literally melted in our mouths. We all also really liked the Samun Phrai which was a huge sausage cut up over a saucy vegetable mix. Being me I almost got the Crispy Duck but I decided to share small plates instead. Chris got a whole fish that was on special and it was so good!

The final place we went was 39 Rue De Jean. Chris was a little skeptical since it's right off the main road and seemed kind of touristy, which I guess it is? But isn't everything if you're close to a main road? I've been there before and I loved it! This time Chris got the Steak Frites, what a boy right? I was steered toward the Scallops Saint Jacques and I was so glad I was! It was very rich but very worth it, however I couldn't bare to eat much more than half it was so rich and heavy.

We also tried Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream. We split Brown Butter Almond Brittle, Salty Caramel, and The Milkiest Chocolate in the World. We actually weren't too impressed. We tried several of their more adventurous flavors and  in the end we thought $7.50 was too much for how little we got and it wasn't the greatest ice cream ever. I would say to try it but stick to one flavor that you think you'll really enjoy.

Any place you guys love in Charleston? Where should we try next time we go? I'd love to know your recommendations!

Oops

I got in crazy late last night and was distracted by this:
So you can understand why this is late right? Right!?

Charleston: Folly Beach

Chris and I spent most of our time on Folly. Why? The surf. I mean it's not great but it exists and if you try really hard you can catch one or two! I mean look at this guy he looks like a Rusty ad am I right?
We liked Folly a lot, mostly because it was really easy for us to get to from our place and it's so easy to get free parking! Seriously, you're a fool if you pay to park there! I really wish people would look up the dog regulations they have there. Most beaches won't let you have dogs on the beach during the high season. Or in Sullivan's case during certain hours. Of course I want to bring our Kon with us but we would feel awful to leave him in a hotel or other place all day while we're out having fun! We saw many people get tickets for their dogs, so watch out or you could face a hefty fine!
We also liked that there were a lot of shops around the main road. We both picked up a couple things and I got a few ideas on sizes for certain brands. 
We didn't get a chance to eat there since we are trying to go on a dime but when we go back do you have any suggestions? Let me know in the comments!

Charleston: Sullivan's Island

Chris and I haven't really been on a proper couples vacation since we've been married. We had one long weekend we had to ourselves in Easton, MD but nothing that was that long and really by ourselves. Of course we've done a ton of fun trips with friends and family but nothing really by ourselves. Even our honeymoon was spent with friends and family! --I'm not complaining at ALL these trips were so fun and I would do them over again exactly the same!-- But we would like to vacate with just ourselves sometimes!
We wanted to keep the cost down so we planned to stay pretty close and drive to Charleston. I found a really awesome airbnb and literally planned nothing else! haha! We still wanted to see friends so we contacted those people and just set off! 
We spent like 80% of our time at the beach, Folly and Sullivan's Island. Those are two very different beaches! And since we were there mostly on weekdays both were pretty quiet. Sullivan's is more family friendly to me, the waves we very quiet, like a lakes waves. It wasn't as windy, which is nice if you want to do something after but don't have time to shower. 
 It was pretty much deserted the first time we went. Thankfully we took the beach umbrella from our rental because the sun was really heating up with such little wind. 
 The dunes here are really beautiful, you have a long walk to get to the beach from any parking. We came back on our very last day to much different elements! The houses here are so nice! They were in the process of building several and they were all just so cool!
We think my parents would live in this house. Plus it was right by the beach so they would have tons of visitors right?!?!
 The Charleston Light, which we got to see in action on our last day! It was pretty cool! vvvvvv
 I mean look at those clouds! It was thundering and lightning so hard! So we gathered all our items that we had just laid out and scuttled back to our friend Shemeh's car. 
 Luckily we were dressed for the weather! 
The three amigos all huddled in the car trying to get dry and maybe be a little warm? Who would have thought you could get cold in August? It was kind of nice to be pushed out of Charleston otherwise we might have stayed longer than intended! 
Have you been to Sullivan's Island? What did you do? What do we need to try next time?

Because It's Monday

And I just got back from a week in Charleston I will be recovering today. Happy Monday!

What to Wear: Sorority Recruitment Bid Day!

How exciting! You've been through all those nights of parties and now you finally find out where you'll be going. Please remember this isn't the end of the world if you don't get your top choice or if you don't get in anywhere. I had a sorority sister that went through recruitment all three years until she got the house she wanted! I know she would have hated going into another house. I also had plenty of friends not get in anywhere and we were still friends. I still invited them to events and they had their own actives that I got invited to. Diversify! I know it will feel like the end of the world but really, college is what you make of it and what you put in you will get the benefits. I joined about as many clubs as I could manage and had a campus job and I loved my experience! I put so much into making the most out of it and I definitely reaped what I sowed. So whatever the outcome of Bid Day is for you, make your college experience the best you can!
On this day you are completely yourself, I actually didn't get a proper Bid Day because we had to be evacuated for Hurricane Katrina! I found out through Facebook! So wear what you would to class, you'll get a sweet new sorority tee. The first of many! And by many I mean almost thousands! :) Good luck! 
Ha, a tiny fraction of my pledge class, the craziest, smartest girls and some of my best friends!

What to Wear: Sorority Recruitment Round Three

This round is usually the more subdued round. You see a little bit of their ritual and you'll probably have more one on one time with someone you met previously. I still remember all the women I talked to on Pref night and I remained friends with most of them! Just because you are joining one sorority does not mean you never socialize with the other ones! You will be in the Greek Community and that bonds people in the same way being in a singular Greek organization does. It's a tough night for everyone involved! I got so emotional during this night when I was a PNM and as an active. So don't be shocked if you're with a big sap like me and she starts crying! lol! So embarrassing! You'll also be making a huge decision on this day, you'll get to rank where you want to go. For me I had no questions, I knew where I wanted to go but I also had 2 amazing backups just in case they didn't want me as much as I wanted them. Make your own decision! I can't stress that enough. Just because your friends like one house more than the one you want to join means nothing! If you decide based on someone else's opinion you probably wont be very happy in the long run. I know several people who chose their house based on their friends, mom's or actual sisters and they were unhappy. Listen to what your heart tells you and you will be happy!

So this is the nicest dressed you'll be. Here are a few options I think I would wear if I were going through Pref. Just make sure you are comfortable, smile, and breath!

What to Wear: Sorority Recruitment Round Two

This the round you will want to get to know more about the sororities you are visiting. You've whittled it down to maybe five or six houses and now you will need to make that list even shorter! Be sure to ask questions that are important to you, like what is your sisterhood like? Will I be able to keep my grades up if I join? What was your experience like choosing sororities? Who do you mix with? What are your house rules for GPA? Tell me more about your philanthropy? What sets you apart from the other houses? Having a few solid questions in your back pocket can really help you find the home you're looking for. Also, these party days are long! You get tired and the active members, however much they try not to show it are tired too! Coming up with good questions can help you be remembered and not just be one of the many faces they see. Since all of these days will probably be long remember to wear something that you like, that's cute but most importantly that is comfortable! you don't want to be messing with a strappy top, or thinking about how my your feet hurt while trying to impress your favorite house!

What to Wear: Sorority Recruitment Round One Continued

Some schools have house tour days on the first day and some schools have so many Greek organizations they just have to split the first round into two days so here are a couple more options for Round One!

What to Wear: Sorority Recruitment Round One

After seeing this I knew I had to do a post on Recruitment! Or a whole week, you might call it Greek Week! I was in a sorority in college and I loved it. I was totally not someone you would picture joining a sorority but I really wanted to not just bro out throughout my four years of college. I had like 2 girlfriends and wanted that girl power and friendship that a sorority promises. While I can't advise you on which sorority your heart leads you to I can help with what you should wear!
Now, every university has their own set of rules. When I went through recruitment we made our own name tags, (I still have the one I made) and we could wear pretty much whatever we wanted, we had some guidelines which, remain the same. Through the years Potential New Members were not longer made their own name tags, and eventually had to wear the same tee shirt for the first round. As always, you should abide by your university rules but if you have a little freedom you will want to take that and make sure whatever you choose reflects who you are. Remember to just be yourself through this process, they want you for you, not the person you can pretend to be. Wear something that really represents you. I know its what on the inside that counts but you want that represented on the outside as well. You want to be remembered for the right things. The girl with the amazing red lipstick that drove across the country this summer! The girl wearing that cool necklace who speaks three languages! That girl wearing that perfect chambray who I just clicked with! Sometimes names are hard to remember but if something sets you apart from everyone else you will be remembered for all the right reasons. People will forget the awesome things about you if they are distracted by your too short skirt or your peek-a-boo bra.
 {Top Row: 1, 2, 3, 4; Middle Row: 1, 2, 3, 4; Bottom Row: 1, 2, 3, 4}
{Top Row: 1, 2, 3, 4; Second Row: 1, 2; Third Row: 1, 2, 3, 4; Fourth Row: 1, 2, 3, 4}
Being a painfully shy person before this process actually helped me come out of my shell and I got to show all these women who I was. They helped me grow as a person and really pushed me to become a well rounded woman. That's something I don't know if I could have gotten anywhere else, I gained a ton of confidence and I'm proud to be a sorority woman.

July Purchase History

I kind of can't believe it is already August! I feel like this year is just whipping by! I hope everyone had a great July and made some beautiful purchases, here are all of mine:
 {Left, Right}
If you've been reading for any amount of time you'll know I really can't resist Forever 21. It's a problem. I really love this maxi, it's a little different from anything I own and when I've worn it I've gotten TONS of compliments! Also, if you've been reading for a while you'll know I frikin love a good phone case, I don't always buy them but I like 'em a lot! So I got this Marc Jacobs look alike for a song. 
 {Left, Right}
You might have seen both of these before, the left is the baseball tee here in stripes and the guy on the right I got in a bigger size. 
Can't be without Ulta either! I noticed my hair was looking a little brassy and these guys have really helped! The packaging is a little different, I think the new packaging is way cuter and I love the smell!
This Bamboo spray is really nice when I don't have time to do my hair and need to combat the frizz North Carolina has bestowed on us! It's also a sunscreen for your hair, so if you have highlights or have dyed your hair it will help keep the color longer. 
 {Left, Middle, Right}
I have been wanting to try a face oil for a while and this stuff is really cool. It takes off all my makeup gently and really gets that waterproof mascara off as well! 
I've also heard a ton about this charcoal face wash, it has a tingling element and it really tightens up my pores. 
I have no idea what drew me into this, I'm sure I read reviews or heard something great about it because I really like it! It's like a primer or if you need minimal, and I mean minimal coverage and a high SPF this one is for you! You just need a tiny bit to cover your face. It applies like a primer and that's how I've been using it when I plan on going out in the sun and I have really been enjoying it. 
Finally, I have really liked pretty much everything from PTR so I thought I would give this a try, I can't give a full review but so far I really like it. 
You can read my review of this palette here.
You can read my review of these masks here.
Finally, I am almost finished with these minis and I think they have really brightened my skin. I'm not sure if I would repurchase all of them but maybe one or two of the three, a full review will be up hopefully soon!
