know when to stop & have a margarita

That is the mantra for this weekend. I would say it's well deserved after a productive work week. You know it's a good one when every last bullet point on your to-do list is scratched off. Bonus points for getting out of the office in a timely manner {high five to New York & summer Friday hours}! Tomorrow I'm going to MoMA PS1 - MoMA's rooftop that displays experimental & contemporary art with emerging musicians from various parts of the world. Should be a great afternoon with friends! Enjoy your weekend & these fun links from around the web . .  .

This has been on repeat all week - take me back to Monday night

midnight memories

The highlight of the year goes to . . . . seeing One Direction live last night!
I'm not kidding - Kelsey & I had an absolute blast and those guys know how to put on a fun show.
 
 
We danced all night & sang along to every song. I'm too embarrassed to post my own videos due to my excessive fangirl screams & off key singing. Can't wait to see those British lads again!
By the way this is hilarious and completely truthful.

a little love boat

TGIF. I had a hectic week at work & I am so thankful for the next couple days off! How cute is this little boat? Wouldn't it be romantic for date night {hint to the future mister}. What are your plans for the weekend? I'm going to a matinée show tomorrow to see Wicked. Has anyone seen it? My friend scored some awesome tickets & I've never been so I absolutely took her up on the offer! Have a good one & enjoy these fun links from around the web . . .

Happy Weekend!

So much goodness is going on right now.
I feel like I have finally settled into living in Manhattan {almost a year in the making}. This week I realized how thankful I am for a job I continue to love, one that is developing me personally & the growth of my future career. I've made some great friendships {which is hard to come by not only later in life - aka after college, but especially in this city}. They bring a lot of laughter, dinner parties, & weekend shenanigans.
Okay, enough on my emotional spiel. But life is two thumbs up right now.
Monday started off with stormy weather & a to-do list that had two columns worth of bullet points. Stress levels were out of the roof & the week seemed daunting. Luckily, as the week progressed and one yellow highlighter out of ink, almost all the points are marked off! Hooray!!!
Besides, two great things happened this week.
#1 Monday I got to see an old friend from Alabama. I hadn't seen Corbin in two, maybe three years {yikes!!!}. It was such a delight and good for the soul to see a familiar face.
#2 Broadway Bites is happening right outside my office. Thank goodness my friends & coworkers are foodies too. I'm almost embarrassed about how much amazingness I ate for lunch. I'm talking basil rice balls, pulled pork sandwiches, & cannoli's.
Oh the cannoli's!
If you're in town, check it out. Broadway Bites is here until August 1st!
Any weekend plans? I'm meeting up with old friends and finishing the book I started a month ago. Better late than never, right? Have a great weekend & enjoy these fun links . . .

beach day

There is nothing better than grabbing some friends & heading to the beach. A day in the waves, reading a romance novel,  attempting to get a summer glow, but frying like a lobster instead, & passing the crackers & cheese sounds perfect right about now. Too bad I'll be stuck in a cubicle until the next mini vaca rolls around. Guess I'll have to live through my brother this weekend {he's off to the Amalfi Coast - can we all agree he's living the life?!}
Here's what I would pack for a day in the sun . . .
