This is not Goodbye

As much as it's going to be difficult to take time away from my blog, I know that it's the right thing to do. There are several different aspects of my life that I have not been giving my all to, & so I'm going to try to work on them during this time. I love you all so much & have truly enjoyed the friendships & relationships that have blossomed out of this blog. You have all touched my heart so much & I'm blessed to have gotten to know each of you. I hope that we can reconnect after I return!

I'd love to follow you ladies on Instagram, so leave your name in the comment section if you like.  Have any of you read 50 Shades of Grey?! I just started it, but everyone I've talked to is obsessed with it. Stay tuned for some quick little posts from the Beach!

Tasty Tuesdays: Homemade BBQ Pulled Chicken

When I think of summery foods BBQ definitely comes to mind, whether it be chicken, steak, or veggies it's all good! This was my first time making chicken in the crockpot & I have to say that I L-O-V-E it :) I've never had chicken before that literally falls apart with the slightest push of a fork, but this one seriously broke apart & shredded soooo easy. I also like that the recipe (listed HERE) included a recipe for a homemade bbq sauce which I really liked since sometimes store bought bbq sauces are a bit strong & overpowering. In the future I would make a little extra sauce to add at the end after shredding the chicken, other than that I'd say it was almost perfect :)
uhhh just looking at this is making my mouth water .. again haha.
I ended up eating this pulled chicken on a whole wheat bun with some slices of avocado, deeeelicious!!
I hope that this recipe makes it into your summer lineup of food :)

I went thrifting yesterday with Trisha of Fashion According to the Menu & I got 4 fun pieces for under $10.00 !! Stay tuned for a video recap tonight <3

I'm with the Band

Ok ok, I'm not "with the band" but I know the singer :) Last night our friend Gil played a live show at the Velvet Lounge in D.C. It was so awesome getting to hear him play live because I've been listening to his cd non-stop!!I don't usually promote music on my blog, but the man can SING (& write all his own songs)!! If you're interested in purchasing the CD you can go here. Now on to some more little shots from the night :)
Quick bite to eat: Lava & Godzilla Roll @ TSUNAMI

Guest Post: Then Life Gave Me Lemons

Hi everybody!! This week has been such a whirlwind since we were out of power for 4 days :( Luckily we have power, AC, electricity, & cable again! This past Tuesday July 3rd I had the pleasure of being a guest blogger over at Then Life Gave Me Lemons. Since it was a Tuesday you know it had to be a TASTY TUESDAY Post :) Head over to her B-L-O-G to see what recipe I whipped up! I'll give you a hint, it involves Lemons ..
Then Life Gave Me Lemons
Tonight several of my friend's are preforming at a local club & I'm so excited for them! I'll be sure to take lots of pictures. Hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July yesterday!! I was pretty lazy & just watched tv, cooked, & played cards with the husband .. it was perfect :)

Red, White, & Booty-Shorts

These past couple of days have been so CRAZY!! We still don't have power aka we're going on day 4 with no electricity, cable, internet, & most importantly AC!! Lucky for me friend's are so sweet & they're letting me cool down at their house & use their internet :) I wore this outfit last week to the Cap FABB Rent the Runway event at the American Ice Co. It was HOTTT out, so I opted for minimal clothing (what's new?!). 

Heels-OFF BROADWAY, Shorts-LEVIS (diy'd), Slip-THRIFTED (worn as shirt), Necklace-CHARMING CHARLIES, Lipstick-SEPHORA "It Girl"

This outfit is the quintessential patriotic getup since it's got all the right colors, but it's still a fun casual everyday look. These shorts are quickly becoming a STAPLE piece in my wardrobe (I've seriously worn them ALL weekend)! I wish I could show you a close up of the heels since they're so cute, but I can't because I'm punishing them for being so DAMN PAINFUL .. no but really my feet we're crying. 
Hope you all are safe from this past weekend's storms & if you don't have electricity like me *Crossing Fingers* that it comes back on :) Love you all & I can't wait to celebrate this Wednesday!! What are you all doing for the 4th of July ?!
