Weddings, Gossip Girl, Ice Cream and Italy!

It’s the Monday of spring break, which means that I should be able to get a lot of work done this week (hopefully).  Don’t forget that Steph and I are going to link up Friday with our Spring Goals, so grab a button below and link up with us!  You know you need some accountability for your spring cleaning list.  😉
Linking up with B for weekending!


Friday night we celebrated the marriage of one of my amazing staff members.  I couldn’t be happier for these two.  Demetrius couldn’t stop smiling; it was actually the best.  And, all of their friends and family were SO nice.  We felt so welcome.  It was such an honor to be included in their big day.  It definitely has me pumped up for Amanda’s wedding next month, and any others that may be on the horizon.

Gossip Girl

Saturday morning, I made it to the Y for Ultimate Dance (and burned 341 calories), did some blog and house stuff, and binge-(re)watched Gossip Girl.  Can we talk about how scandalous this show actually is?  HOW ARE THESE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS?  HOW IS THAT THEIR TARGET AUDIENCE?  I still love the clothes though.  (And Blake Lively’s hair.)

Ice Cream

Chances are, I’ve told you about Halo Top, but if I haven’t, you need to know about this goodness.  It’s ice cream with 240 calories.  IN THE ENTIRE CONTAINER.  I’ve been on a taste-testing spree since the new flavors came out, so I can recommend Vanilla Bean, Chocolate, Mint Chip, Birthday Cake, and Chocolate Almond Crunch.  If you’re trying to stay on a diet, but still have a sweet tooth, this is amazing!

Italy 2017

One of the things I did this weekend was work on our trip.  Last week, I booked our hotel in Cinque Terre because Ebates was offering 9% cash back!  If you aren’t using Ebates yet, sign up through my link and we’ll both win!  I booked a wine tasting tour of the Cinque Terre region.  I’m thinking that we’re going to spend a few days in Florence and make a couple day trips throughout Tuscany.  From there, I’m not sure where we will go.  I’m going to work on one destination at a time, and I’m hoping to work out most of the details this week.  Yay Spring break!


  • Mandy - I just found some pictures from my trip to Cinque Terre in 2014 that I didn’t even know were missing. It was so awesome finding those pictures! Cinque Terre is so photogenic! 🙂 I am so jealous of your upcoming trip to Italy and all of the fun planning you get to do!
