Friday Randoms

I hope you are lucky like me and have the day off for Good Friday.  If not, my condolences.  It's been one of those weeks, so let's end it with some random thoughts.

1. So, I love Project Runway (Spoiler Alert).  Last week they did the Lord & Taylor challenge, meaning that they did a design just for Lord & Taylor and the winner's design would be mass produced and sold at Lord & Taylor.  If I'm being completely honest, this is the first look that's walked the runway where I said I absolutely have to have it.  Unfortunately a) It's sold out and b) it's $259.  (which makes me laugh).  The Lord & Taylor website will not allow me to access the photo, so the link is here.

2. I love the warmer weather.  Not that it's been ridiculously cold or anything here.  One of the 'small things' in life that makes me happy is the return of the pigeons that hang out on our window sill.  Seriously, it's the small things.

3.  Another reason why I love warmer weather?  There's a ton of things to do in Dallas.  The husband and I went to a wine tasting at NorthPark.  It was co-hosted by La Duni and Breadwinners.  We had a great time.  We found a new favorite wine (that's not sold in Dallas - of course), enjoyed some small bites and I even got a facial by Origins.  It was so much fun.

4.  I'm still eating salads in a jar.  Learn more about them here.  I've changed it up a bit by throwing in some fresh fruit.  Also, this dressing is Raspberry Nectar Vinaigrette from Whole Foods.  It's delish!

There's more lettuce than there appears to be.

5. The husband is going out of town this weekend, so Lola and I will be on our own.  Doesn't she look excited about being left with me all weekend?

Have a great weekend!


  1. I'm with you - I also wanted that Project Runway dress but could never bring myself to shell out over $200 for it.

    1. I know! I guess since it is from a Project Runway contestant, I should have expected it. Still.

  2. Awe, Lola is such a cutie!
