I wore this Wednesday night for a blate (blogger date) with Sarah. We met the good old fashion way...online. I can't even remember how we stumbled across each others blogs, but I am so thankful the internet brought us together. We made it official in real life last summer when we attended Texas Style Council. I haven't seen her since then, but honestly it was like zero time had passed. We didn't sit down and ask one another broad questions about our lives or try and play catch up. We cut straight to details, engaged in normal girlfriend talk and weren't timid to dig right into some serious food.
We both know exactly what has been going on in each others lives because of our blogs. It's kind of crazy that I seem to be in the "know" about blog friends' lives more than I know about some people in my family. It's pretty wild. But we can't help to sometimes have more insight about our online friends current happenings since most of us document in-the-moment details, daily activities and weekly statuses.
It was so refreshing to sit and chat not only about blogging, but also silly tibits about our summer, our husbands, shopping, house projects and so many things in between. You know, girl stuff. I wish she would make her way back to the Hill Country and kick the Dallas area to the curb. Maybe one day. In the meantime, we will have to continue our online courtship until we hug again. Hopefully the next time we see one another, our husbands will be in tow. I am dying for them to meet.

This beaded razor back top has been a trooper for me. I have worn it several times in the last year or so, but kind of forgot about it until I was browsing Forever 21 online and came across it again. What? They brought something back that I got over a year ago? Yes, they did. Actually, I wasn't too surprised because this has happened with one other dress that I have. I have to wonder what their reasoning is when restocking certain pieces that were originally available twelve-plus months ago. I can't think of another store that does this or at least I haven't seen it. Things that make you go hmmmmmm.
On a completely different subject and a racy one at that, who watched the 50 Shades of Grey movie trailer yesterday? I shamefully will say that I viewed it three times. I am still not sold on the actor, but dying for February 14th to arrive. Ross should be happy that I will be a cheap date this Valentine's Day...take me to the movies, let me see Christian Grey, reminiscence about how my life was put on hold until I finished all three books, buy me a bag of popcorn, Milk Duds and Diet Coke. I will be good as gold. Plus, Beyonce did a remake of "Crazy in Love" for the movie. If you aren't a 50 Shades fan, watch the trailer just to hear a snippet of the song.
Okay, I rambled enough for a Friday. Ya'll have a great weekend.
