Miscellaneous Monday...Life Lately

linked up here and here
another monday. 
another beginning to a fantastic week!
this week is my fav. 
birthday week.
birthday thursday. what i'm turning 26.
doesn't mean i can't celebrate!!!
lets get down to business.
the random ramblings, weekend recap, and fun

one. weekend recap. as usual we sat for maybe a few hours all weekend. which is the way i love them. being home by myself all week is somewhat boring and lonely. please texas, approve my teacher cert so i can job hunt!!!! 
friday i started off the day with lunch and manis with my sister in law and her best.

that night we headed out with old and new friends to dinner at roaring fork and a movie (savages). if you have a roaring fork in town. go. don't be intimidated by its high and mighty look. its delicious and very reasonably priced at $13-$15 a plate and we all were stuffed. we tried to sneak into the sold out earlier showing of the movie we were seeing only to get kicked out. who knew they had assigned seating for opening weekend?!? well we made the late show and it was worth it.

saturday we woke up early to check out furniture from our friends. they are renting out their home and are selling all their gorgeous furniture. we are in need of some new things for the new home. (which we should know by wednesday if this is really going to happen) we spent the rest of the afternoon grilling out and watching movies with the family.

sunday was girls day. my mil and sil took me to austin for some outlet shopping and birthday shopping. we ate at a delicious diner called magnolias and did some damage in the shops. we also made a pitstop at the korean market in austin. always so fun when we go. they have the most interesting stuff. including pickled everything:radish, shrimp, garlic. btw that gorgeous necklace i'm birthday gift ever!!! wanted this kendra scott piece for a while now. can't wait to put some outfits together centered around its gorgeousness!!! (with my 50% off for my bday and store credit, i got this necklace for 1/3 its original price. perfect deal!!!)

two. did i mention its my birthday this week?!? my parents are coming in at the end of the week to celebrate and see the new house. of course i'm beyond excited to see them! we have some fun things planned....more on that over the week. but lets just say i'm celebrating like a kid one day and an adult the next!

three. perks of living in texas. these lovely goods are all over HEB's isles. and i want them all. i will be a texas girl forever. and plan on making that clear in my home!!!

four. this is my morning. glorious. diet coke. greek yogurt. magazine. iPad. pandora. blogger. perfect.

hope you start your week off spectacular!!!
