weekender

On Friday night, Brandon and I went to our my favorite restaurant, O-Ku.  You can't really see my outfit too well, but it's a faux leather jacket (Express) over a gray/black romper (express), paired with Nine West Hideout pumps.  Luckily, we had 70 degree weather, so I didn't have to wear tights! Spring is just around the corner and I cannot wait.
 The pendant is from F21.
 Our usual order (creatures of habit) consists of:  basil gimlets, rock shrimp (like "bang bang shrimp" at Bonefish, only better) + edamame, and three rolls.  We ate every last bite!
 
 

This was my first weekend since before Christmas that I didn't go out of town or have to work a hospital event! First on the list of things to do:  sleep in.  And I did just that.  Later on, Brandon helped me wash & vacuum my car.  Does that not just put you in the best mood?  Having a tidy car makes my whole life seem more organized. 
I enjoyed a cup of coffee with my dear friend, Ryan, afterwards.  Saturday night, Brandon and I went to a hockey game! We don't usually partake in watching this sport (this is South Carolina, afterall), but we enjoy going to one game a year.  Not going to lie, our favorite part is when there are fights -such great entertainment!  This time, it was "Pink in the Rink" night, in honor of breast cancer awareness.  All money raised that night is going to support local breast cancer research.  The rink was dyed pink, the players' jerseys were pink, and we also got to hear some amazing stories from breast cancer survivors!
Not much to say about Sunday ...it was a pretty typical day.  
Now for some random tidbits:

Here's an outfit I like to call "rainy day, hot/winter, don't know what to wear-outfit."  It was February and rainy, but yet 70 degrees, but my office is cold.  This is my solution.  Boots, summer dress with a black sweater over it, paired with a bright poppy rain jacket & pashmina scarf.  Random, but it works.

This candle is nothing short of amazing.  This is how I would describe the smell:
It's summertime, you've been at the beach all day & have sunkissed skin.  You step back inside your beach house & take a long, steamy shower.  Then, with comfy clothes on, lay on the sofa with the windows open so that the cool, salty air can fill the room.
THAT is how this candle smells.  Got it?
I bought mine at Ulta for buy-one get-one 50% off (linked here)!

Something else that is so wonderful it could be illegal.  Similar to the movie, Gone in 60 Seconds, except this whole box was gone in 24 hours.  oops.

Hope you all had happy weekends. Xo-M
