Bites of My Life

Another week has come and gone. School is quickly ending and summer is fast approaching! Last week consisted of the OKC Arts Festival, Barre3, date parties, lunch at my favorite burger place, quality time at home and the arrival of spring allergies...thankful for many cups of green tea to save my aching throat. 

{Bites from the Week}
Clockwise from the top left corner:
-Always a goodtime with my girl Betsy at our last date party of the semester.
-Channeling Contessa's post for Iced Almond Milk Caramel Lattes last week has me giddy for iced coffee season! Not to mention they are made with almond milk (I have a slight obsession).
-My favorite pesto pea salad, tilapia and summer squash with thyme and feta make for the perfect Sunday night dinner.
-A sweet friend of mine came running up to me this weekend excited to show me her freshly painted mint nails! She had her mom ship it to her after reading my "Mint" post. It's reassuring to know people are actually reading and taking in what I'm writing about.
 {Bites from Lunch}
Sunday's lunch gets its own highlight. What's not to love about a restaurant that share's your last name. Tucker's Onion Burgers uses all local ingredients which makes for the best burger in my opinion. This was my first time to their Classen Curve location and it didn't disappoint. 
Now back to the reality that finals are next week and the days ahead will consist of lots of studying and lots of coffee. Wish me luck!

Color Crush: Mint

Pantone may have named emerald green the "color of the year," but I have found myself more prone to mint. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my freshly painted mint nails. Below are some of my favorite mint picks for the season!
-This Anthropologie sweater has become a staple in my closet and best of all it is now on sale! I throw it on with jeans or shorts, and dress it up with wedges or down with converse. Great for those chilly spring evenings.
-I've had my heart set on the light pink KitchenAid for forever, but recently I am being swayed by the mint version. Especially after seeing it in Alaina's house tour on The Everygirl.
-Loving this new Lululemon tank gifted to me by the Easter bunny (my mom). It is hard to tell but there are actually tiny white polka dots on it.
-Nothing is more classic than Essie's mint candy apple. 
-Kate Spade has been making different versions of their big bauble earring for the past few seasons now, but these glassy mint studs are grabbing my attention.
-One of my roommates recently purchased this Lulu jacket and I envy it every time she wears it. The color is fabulous and it is the perfect jacket to throw on when heading to class. 
-Green smoothie recipes are being seen all over Pinterest. My favorite combination is two big handfuls of spinach, almond milk, a tablespoon of almond butter, a frozen banana and 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt. I love the idea of throwing in some fresh mint to give it a fresh twist!
