Thankful Thursday: Week 18


Happy Thursday and first day of May!  I feel like I say this every year but... where did April go?  It's also crazy to think that today marks 4 years ago that I graduated from college!  Everyone always says that as you get older, the years go by faster and I totally agree.  So much has happened in the last 4 years and I'm so thankful for where I'm at right now.  In fact, this week itself has been, without a doubt, one to be thankful for!  For quite a few reasons actually.  I can't say anything yet (I know, so lame) but next week I'll be able to share more :)

Make sure to link up with Mia at Make Me Up MiaCarly at Carly Blogs HereKristal at The Strong Family and I and let us know what you were thankful for this week!

Thursday, April 24


Dinner of champions ;)

Friday, April 25


There are few things better than a fresh manicure!  Loving this deep red/orange color - Vermillionaire by Essie.

Saturday, April 26


Only 103 floors and 1,353 feet above the Chicago streets!  So freaky stepping out onto the glass ledge!

Sunday, April 27


I have a fresh flower addiction.  Lately I've been getting them from Trader Joe's... great prices and I can actually keep them alive!

Monday, April 28


It's been rainy here ALL week long!  My Hunter's have been put to very good use.

Tuesday, April 29


Celebrating a volleyball victory and possibly something else I just can't share yet!  ;)

Wednesday, April 30


 We have been on a grilled salmon kick.  We have it once a week with home-made fried rice and it is so delicious!

  5. That Essie color is gorgeous! OMG, I think I'd freak out stepping out onto that glass ledge that high up! It looks so cool but definitely a bit nerve wracking. I'd be paranoid I'd break the glass! Can't wait to hear what you were celebrating!

  26. Yikes, I got anxiety looking at you standing on that ledge. I don't know if I could do it. Scary. I'd have to make everyone else get off it so I knew the thing wouldn't collapse. haha.

  31. Trader Joe's always has a great flower selection. I love buying my flowers from there. The ones you got are so pretty :)

    I know it's Cinco de Mayo and that I should be talking about mexican food, but I really want pizza now after seeing that photo.
