This is How I Roll

Good morning! Happy Sunday 😀 How’s it going for ya so far?


I woke up at 6:00 this morning to blow my nose and could NOT fall back asleep. Argh. Laid there with the petski’s until about 7:00 and then dragged my butt outta bed.

This made it all better though!



Kiss me Kona


Blueberry oats w/ a shiz ton of mix ins – I was even brave enough to include chia seeds


Yep. All better 😀


So yesterday ended up being filled with lots n lots of besties! Can’t beat that!

First I met my girl, Jessica, to try on my bridesmaids dress for her wedding:



She got the dresses from J. Crew’s bridal line and they’re SO cute. I know the famous last words are always, “And you’ll be able to wear it again!!!” but this time, I really think I will…



Don’tcha think? And actually..this is the one that was a little roomy on me. Luckily she had a size smaller in her car, which fit perfectly! That doesn’t happen too often when it comes to bridesmaids dresses. Can’t wait for the wedding!

The dress was adorable, and very lightweight for her outdoor wedding, but I’m always glad to get back into casual clothes after playing dress up. Today I was sporting my “This is How I Roll” shirt:


Got it on our honeymoon, hehe.

After chit chattin’ a bit with Jess and her fiancé, Clint (who looks like Edward from Twilight! Shoulda taken a pic…) we had a bit more time before dinner, so the husband and I decided to bowl a couple games across the street:



This is How I Bowl.

Sorry for the craptastic pictures. I forgot my cam at my parent’s house, and had my iPhone only.

Action shots:

We both sucked it up big time, but Shane won, and the prize was not having to drive for the night. I was OK with it since I didn’t plan on drinking much, anyway.

Two games later, and we met up with a group of friend’s at Kouri’s, a pub and restaurant in my hometown.

It’s definitely not a veg-friendly place, so I ended up having a blurry dinner salad and some spinach artichoke dip:




But that’s all right, because I was really there for the FRIENDS!



Destiny, aka D$, aka the bringer of Trader Joes goodies:


Freakin’ awesome friend right there!


Jessica, aka, bride-to-be, aka BFF since 4th grade!


Kim! aka ship mate, aka newly engaged hot mama

Plus a few random boys we like to call our friends and/or significant others 😉

Everyone peaced around 9ish, so Shane and I went back to my parents to pick up the pup and head back home. Any time Niko spends ANY amount of time at my parents house, she absolutely wears herself out. Seriously. she wouldn’t even move from the bed when Shane MADE the bed this morning. LOL


Sleep tight, pup.

Good thing it’s still early, because I’ve got a laundry list of things to do (including laundry!) First stop – gym for a 4-5 mi. run (depending on how I feel..still got the sniffles,) Borders to use a coupon, pet store, then clean, clean, clean! Oh yeah, and football 😀

Have a faaaabulous day, all!

Are you still good friends with your high school buddies? All of the BFF’s mentioned above went to highschool with me, and I’m proud to say we’re still BFF’s to this day! We all live in different cities (so far the same state) so it’s hard to get together often, but I love when we do 😀

  1. I love TJs soups in the box! I think they are soo good. I am still friends with a few hs friends, but mainly college friends.

  2. I am still friends with a lot of peeps I met in college, but not so many that I met in high school. One of my closest friends and I have known each other since we were THREE!

  3. I LOVE that bridesmaid dress!! the color looks great on you, too. J.Crew dresses are pretty versatile. I love almost everything from that store!

    I let my bridesmaids pick their own dresses in the same color and length. Hopefully they all like them enough to wear them again, but who knows.

  4. My best friend in the world is from high school. We ended up getting matching tattoos about 3 years out. But, she’s the only friend I have left from high school, the rest of us went our ways, nothing bad to say about them, just the way life happens to be.

    Heads up- I’m drawing for my mary’s crackers giveaway today at 3pm (PST) incase you’re interested!

  5. AWW love the dress.. my girls wore a very very similar color! You look fabulous 🙂

  6. The dress is SUPER cute! I’d totally wear that again. Love jcrews wedding line. Looks like a fun night too. Hope you feel better and have a nice run today

  7. Wow, I forgot that beds could be made up. haha, or perhaps I am just incredibly lazy. Love the updates!

  8. Awww how fun!! I love bowling 🙂 And what an adorable mug. I love the heart handle!! I still occasionally talk to my best friends my high school – but only 1 or 2 of them. it’s sad how we’ve drifted off. But whenever we DO get together, it’s almost like no time has passed 🙂

  9. I haven’t been bowling in forever! It’s so fun though. Even when you stink at it, which I most certainly do. Haha!

    I’m friends with 2 of the people I went to high school with. I’m not super duper close to them but I we talk regularly and see each other when we can. Plus, it’s cool to know that I can always turn to them if needed and that they know me better than most. 🙂

  10. Looks like a great time bowling! I honestly can’t remember the last time I went and am dying to go!

    I’m friends with two people from high school, but that’s about it. I did have a nice time catching up with people though at our high school reunion over Thanksgiving 🙂

  11. Oh I love that t-shirt!!!! Way cute! 🙂

  12. Haha love the shirt!! That bridesmaids dress definitely looks like a good one!

  13. thank god for cute, tasteful bridesmaids dresses! one you can actually wear again! that T cracks me up 🙂 looks like you had a good time this weekend! i am still friends with a handful of high school friends~ but more so with friends i made when i was 18 and 19.

  14. Love that shirt – too cute! I just got an email about bridesmaid dresses for a wedding I’m in this fall. Luckily I think it’ll be re-wearable, too! I’m friends with a couple girls from high school, but I went away to college and lost touch with a few. Now most of my close friends are from college or after.

  15. I love JCrew- especially that color! I just bought their Jackie cardigan in what looks to be the same exact shade! My bridesmaids wore the JCrew Sophia in turquoise 🙂

    I still talk, mostly through Facebook, with the people I was closest to in HS. We all went to the same college, except for one, but we had our own separate lives there for the most part 🙂 I love how everybody’s wedding is like a little reunion, though! (2 of us got married last year and one this year!)

  16. Im only friends w/ 1 childhood friend. I have moved 3000 miles away from them and there’s only 1 i keep in touch with but how fun for you that you do!!!!!

  17. I actually am pretty good friends still with my hs friends. I don’t live in the area anymore, but I always see them when I go home to visit my parents.

    My bridesmaid dresses are from J. Crew too! It’s not the same dress, but I think it’s the same color. Is that color called Spiced Wine?

  18. Your BM dress is so pretty! I’m still very close with my two best friends from high school… one is my matron of honor! That’s great that you’ve kept in touch and stayed close with some of your oldest friends!

  19. I have a handful of friends from high school that I have stayed in touch with. I moved very far away from college and I didn’t come home that often. I’ve reconnected with a few of them in the last year, which has been very fun!

  20. I love the pics of your Saturday with friends even if they were from your phone. I also loved the football game. I have a beautiful Saints sweatshirt from about 15 years ago that I can finally wear with pride:-)

  21. Very cute bridesmaid dress. Your friend has good taste!

  22. your oats look JUST like mine! I love frozen berries in them and then chia and nut butter on top! I have it every single morning!!! love the bridesmaid dress and the tshirt LOL
